Good Place for family fun
"We had a lot of fun staying at this home. Though it was definitely an older home and surrounded by a few homes which had apparently been abandoned (probably a result of the hurricanes/ tsunamis that recently hit the area), it was a very fun place to stay for families. The kids LOVED the swimming tidal pool so much so that we couldn't get them out of it. The deck area and family/living/ room was a wonderful place to hang out. Kim, our contact, provided us with all the info we needed to make our stay just right. All in all it was a very fun staycation."

"I have family on the big island and stay in Hawaii several times a year. I have stayed in a number of locations around the island and decided to try this location. We absolutely loved the location, the tide pools are fabulous. We love that side of the island because you get the sunrise but also have shade in the afternoon. With that being said I feel like I need to give some other information, since I rely on these reviews very heavily when I book a condo. This location is at least 30 minutes from the main Highway 11 that goes around the island. If you are heading out for the day this is fine but if you are running back and forth it is a problem. That being said it is always a beautiful drive. There are excellent eating places and grocery stores in Pahoa which is only 11 miles. The waves are at least 3/4 of a mile from the house with the tide pools right in front of the house. This makes the evenings very quiet. There are coconut beetles in this area and they can be troublesome if you leave alot of lights on, we had no trouble after the first day as long as we were careful not to leave lights on that were unnecessary. As in other reviews, the bedrooms are on the upper floor with an outside stairway. There is sleeping for 6 but any more than that would be crowded. The house is beautiful and well stocked. This house would not be appropriate for anyone who has trouble with stairs."

An authentic Hawaiian home that is true to its environment
"We came as two moms for a girls trip with our combined four daughters aged 7 to 16. It was the first of three locations we stayed on our Hawaiian adventure, and an excellent low-key place to acclimate, explore and relax. The kitchen is well-stocked, and the house is 15-20 minutes to town, so we made simple meals but also enjoyed area pizza and poke. The kids didn't tire of walking to the wai'opae tide pools to cool off and enjoy snorkeling a high and low tides, or just chasing crabs. We loved listening to the rain on the roof, showering on the lanai, and chasing after the little geckos. It was very convenient for our volcano adventure day. With two bedrooms, two baths and a couch, we had lots of room."

"This four bedroom, four bathroom was perfect for our family get-a-way. Everything about this house and it's location was wonderful for us. I took my two grandchildren into the warming pond the first morning for a cool down. They were a little leery at first but once in they loved it. We walked to the Kapoho tide pools (about 5 minutes) every day to snorkel. Our 5 year old could pick out every fish that was in the movie Finding Nemo including turtles.
I highly recommend this great home."
