  • Perfection

    "Shangrila is an oasis of island beauty. Private lava vent heated lagoon with lots of fish to see while snorkeling - large koi and bright yellow and blue schools of small fish. Lots of room to relax, private and quiet location close to Pahoa where groceries etc are readily available. Check out the gourmet hot dog truck on the way - you won't be disappointed. Sunday is the outdoor market day on the road to Hilo, worth going. Champagne Pond is located here too. So much good to say - just go is my best advice!!! Brady is a wonderful caretaker who will make sure your needs are met while there, and Joe makes awesome potpourri. Can't remember the gardeners name (so sorry!) you did a great job - both routine and the emergency need that arose due to wild winds while there - exciting to say the least."

  • Looking forward to coming back soon.

    "We had such a relaxing, comfortable time here, and daydream about our return! Jan has created a comfortable, informal, Island-style atmosphere that makes you feel at home right away. With the short path to the tidal pools a few steps away, the location couldn't be more convenient. The lush vegetation surrounding the house and tidal pond creates privacy that lets the the screened lanai be an extension of the living space, with day beds and rattan dining set. Jan has planted orchids from her farm everywhere in the garden, and there are orchids in every room in the house. We had a wonderful, informative tour of her orchid farm while we were there. The spacious kitchen is very well stocked with all kinds of cookware and appliances so we always ate at home with groceries from Pahoa or Hilo and perfectly ripe fruit from the Farmer's Markets. We also borrowed some of the provided swim/snorkeling gear for visits to the adjacent Tidal Pools and to the Alahanui Warm Pond a few miles down the road. Friends joined us for a few days, and the additional outside shower house gave us all elbow room. There is an ample library of travel books, a scrapbook with local recommendations, plus TV, WiFi, and games -- and laundry room with even more books! We were charmed by the little green geckos that discreetly patrol the walls and the sounds of the doves and other birds. Jan was a most hospitable and considerate host and made us feel the true spirit of Aloha. We can't wait to return, and hope that there will be a vacancy!"

  • Great vacation rental!

    "I so loved this sweet vacation home away from home! Perfect for a single person, but can accommodate a family too. Absolutely the Best things about it, are the wonderful private thermal pool, and it's location in the Kapoho Beach community. For a crazy water person like myself, this is HEAVEN! WaI-Opae, Millionaires, Champagne Pond, Kapoho Bay, etc it's all here! The house has everything you need- down to extra snorkeling gear and noodles. Yes the Coqui frogs are LOUD here in Puna. Bring earplugs if it bothers you at night. They DO stop around 3/4 am tho. Jeana was awesome- extremble helpful!"

  • Beautiful Kapoho View

    "We immediately fell in love with the arrival in the house. It has a lot of charm and is very tastefully decorated. The kitchen is huge. The covered porch is a dream, just like the view. On listening to the birdsong morning, just wonderful. The whole booking process was very friendly and very well documented. Will be back soon! We hope we can come again. Much obliged."
