"My husband and I stayed there for about a week in July. What can we say that hasn't been said- it is absolute paradise! The location is well away from tourists, and is breathtakingly beautiful. Every morning we had breakfast on the lanai overlooking the ocean, and dinner there as well. We loved being lulled to sleep by the sound of singing frogs and ocean waves crashing. The pool was very nice, and we looked forward to visits from the neighbour's dog- literally the sweetest dog- every day. We cannot wait to come back, and cannot thank Terry enough for sharing this wonderful house with us!"

"I am Happy to have found this home. The open floor plan, oversized balcony, tropical setting, out door shower overlooking the jungle and only a few minutes walk to the most beautiful tide pool snorkeling on the island. I look forward to my return!!!"

"Four of us (two couples)spent three lovely days at the Pond House as part of our week on the Big Island. The house is not fancy, but unique and charming. We loved the screened porch where the furniture was comfy and a cooling breeze relaxed us in the evenings. All the plants on the grounds are so lovely. The kitchen had everything we needed. We enjoyed the beautiful tide pools each morning where snorkeling was awesome. After our morning snorkel, we would go out exploring the area. One day we took the road to Kalapana. Enjoyed the beautiful scenery along the way and then was fascinated by the lava that buried the town. The pond house is about 45 minutes from Volcano National Park so we spent a day there. Enjoyed pizza and aloha at Boogie Woogie pizza in Pahoa. Also went to the Mauna Loa macadamia nut factory in Hilo- lots of free samples! All that said, if you want an impeccably clean place, go somewhere else. This is jungle living and there were some ants in the house and also geckos that left their poop here and there. It's not close to restaurants so you'll need to plan accordingly there. We loved our time at this home."

Great views in a well appointed house - just like home!
"Our stay at KC's was like many on here - perfect. The directions to the property are very clear and concise. Once we had collected the keys and put the gate tag on our mirror it was smooth sailing. Tip for those not used to reading directions is to put the house address into your GPS or smart phone!
KC's is walking distance to some fantastic sheltered ocean ponds - we spent hours at the Champagne Pond watching the fish and moray eels - great intro for our novice snorkelling friend before heading out into he open ocean. Also great for the kids.
The house itself is just as described and more. Spotlessly clean and well appointed, we didn't have to buy anything except food to cook. There are ample supplies of detergents, soaps and all the basics for cooking your own meals. A water filter jug, coffee maker and ice dispenser made it all so easy. This is a real plus for a holiday rental. A short drive away are some good restaurants in Pahoa including a natural food store and other supermarkets aren't too far away on the road to Hilo. The Farmers Market is a real highlight and worth checking out.
The Lanai is HUGE and has great views over the palm trees to the ocean. There's an almost constant breeze and the ceiling fans can be easily adjusted up or down for some extra air movement. We didn't have a problem finding a speed that suited the weather.
There's plenty of beach gear to use including chairs, boards, snorkels, water shoes etc. It really made for a low-maintenance, carefree vacation! There's also passionfruit growing on the fence, some bananas and pineapple in the garden making this a true tropical paradise. Although it rains in the evening, on a clear night the stars are really fantastic with such low light pollution, and there's a gentle evening chorus that sounds straight off a relaxation CD.
We had arrived early and the cleaners were just leaving but welcomed us warmly and had left some fresh fruits in the basket for us. The owner contacted us before we departed to let us know that the house was free for the day if we wanted to stay on until our flight, which we really appreciated given we had a late afternoon flight. We'd love to come back sometime."
