A unique experience!
"A week spent at the Tidepools House with my extended family was an experience we'll never forget. Comfortable house with everything we needed, fabulous ocean views and our very own warm lagoon at the back steps!! So many beautiful fish and the sunrises were glorious. Sitting on the deck in the evening with the sound of the surf breaking on the reef, palm trees swaying in the breeze and the full moon above was magical. A fantasyland for children and a laid back relaxing atmosphere for adults. We loved it!!"

"The place is every bit as nice as advertised and Sophia was very helpful and accommodating. You should never go to the big island without seeing this side of the island. You should spend a day exploring the volcano, a day at the Hilo farmers market and at wai'Opae tide pools, and a day at waipio valley. I have been to all of the islands and Hilo has the best farmers market of all. We snorkeled captain cook, Mauna lani resort and wai'opea tide pools. We loved them all, but actually liked the tide pools the best. You must go near high tide and you will see the best fish if you swim out a little farther. We never got anywhere close to the crashing waves, but saw tons of fish. If you are reasonably in shape, you should hike down into waipio valley. There is a 1400 waterfall to the left, after you get to the bottom, and to the right is a black sand beach. If you boulder hop on the south end of the beach, you will get to a waterfall pouring into the ocean. On the way to waipio valley, don't miss Hawaii tropical botanical garden and Akaka falls. The botanical garden is the best botanical garden that I have ever seen. As soon as I got off the plane, I took the kids to see rainbow falls and pe'e pe'e falls in downtown Hilo. The kids loved it and it took all of 5 minutes. Ate at cafe pesto and Ken's pancakes in Hilo, loved them both. Went to pahoa fresh fish in pahoa. This place looks like a dive, but I loved the fish and chips. You get a choice of mahi- mahi, ahi, ono or swordfish. Hawaii is enchanting and is my favorite island. Next time I go back, I will spend 4 days on each side of the island. Do not try to drive back and forth across the island more than once. It takes 2.5 hours each way."

"We stayed from July 3-9 and was a great location for us. Nice quiet location away from the traffic. My 9 yr old daughter enjoyed swimming every day in the lagoon with fishes and turtles. Very relaxing spot. However, it was a little uneasy at first to have our kids sleep down stairs away from main floor. But, they were good with it. Will like to go back again soon. One week was not long enough to enjoy the big island. Check in and out was easy. Note: no cell phone service. Just WiFi."
