  • So well appointed!

    "My husband I stayed for ten days in November 2014. What a gem of a place to stay. Everything you need is there and the location is wonderful for visiting the Kapoho tidepools. There are so many things to do in this area of the island! Volcano, Hilo, farmers markets, cultural events. Nice change from the tourist filled Kona side. Will be back next time."

  • Location Times Three

    "The Kapoho Tidepools are a unique environment for snorkeling, with easy entry into sheltered water featuring beautiful coral and abundant marine life. Hale Hui is suspended above its own shallow mini-tidepool, providing views of little butterflyfish and Moorish Idols right below the lanai, and giving easy access to the deeper water across the lava shelf. The lush green forest area is filled with birds, and the frog chorus at night is very jungly. The house itself is quite rustic. Unlike many vrbo properties that are lived in by an owner much of the time, this one appears to be always used as a rental. That lack of a loving hand to set everything right at intervals shows in the details. The management company is very available and responsive, but things like screens and doors that can deteriorate quickly in this wet, salty environment could use an overhaul. The outdoor furniture is also showing the effects of weathering and age. If you come to Hale Hui prepared for a rustic cabin in a beautiful location, you won't be disappointed. Late afternoon on the lanai, with the seabirds finding their night roosts, the songbirds getting in a few last numbers, the frogs tuning up, the sun sinking toward Mauna Loa, the waves crashing on the outer reef, and the soaring clouds reflected on the calm water of the tidepools makes it easy to overlook the minor flaws in the building. The nice little gas BBQ also helps, and the bed is comfortable. It isn't perfect in every respect, but the things that are perfect more than make up for the rest."

  • Paradise Found!

    "My husband and I just spent 10 days at Pond Cottage.What a perfect spot. Steps away from the tide pools, we snorkeled every day. Sometimes twice a day! The cottage is very cozy and we were so comfortable that we wanted to stay MUCH longer. The screened porch kept us bug-free and has a beautiful view of the front-yard tide pool. The area has at least three Farmer's Markets which kept us supplied with delicious fruit, vegetables, local cheeses and honey and jams. The owner, Jan, kept us well-supplied with fresh flowers and starfruit. Don't miss out on a tour of Jan's orchid farm! We will return to this beautiful cottage as soon as we can!"
