  • JUST LOVELY

    "Great private location yet within close proximity of Kapoho Tide Pools and Pahoa. About 28 miles from Hilo. Beautiful and lush tropical plants everywhere on the property. Rosemarie was very informative and friendly and we look forward to returning here."

  • A wonderful, tranquil, waterfront, Tidepool, swimming, snorkeling, relaxing paradise!!!!!!

    "Myself & my wife have been renting the Oceanfront Cottage for yrs. Usually 2 to 3 months at a time. It has such a remarkable location situated on the Tidepool. The view over not only the Tidepool, but also seeing and hearing the surf, just adds to one's vacation/getaway. I tell my friends that just below the outside deck, I can swim with turtles and enjoy being in my own aquarium. To be able to see so many fish, corals, and other assorted sea life at arms length is something that you will remember FOREVER!!! The cottage itself is cute and provides you with everything one needs to enjoy the area. Only about 35 miles from Hilo, a little over 2 hours from Kona and the volcano is about an hour away. Just 1 mile down scenic 'red road' there is a park with an acre warm pond heated naturally and kept at a perfect temperature by the surf. There is bus service, but a car is really best to enjoy the entire Puna area. We highly recommend a stay at the cottage if one decides on the Big Island as their destination. Even though we live here now, we continue to rent the Oceanfront Cottage as 'OUR' very special getaway! Very enjoyable memories continue to happen here! Seeing the constellation of 'The Southern Cross' from the deck to watching rainbows out over the water, to the fabulous sunrises and sunsets...., all...., only from this very small cluster of homes. There is no other place like this, in the entire USA. The cottage is perfect, and experience Aloha first hand from the management team, Mark, Ron & Jeana. You will NOT be disappointed...... Mahalo,"

  • Family Retreat

    "We stayed at Nanea Kai in late July/early August for 6 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. There were 7 of us in our party including 8 & 10 year old grandchildren. The tidal pool was a big hit, both because of the Koi (the kids named each one) and because we could practice snorkeling in it. The house itself is well maintained and up to date. It was wonderful to have a washer & dryer to use. Beds were comfortable and we really appreciated the fans in every room. We traveled to the volcano, the Rainbow Falls, into Hilo, to Mona Kea Visitor’s Center, and across the island to swim and snorkel. We found restaurants & grocery stores in Pahoa although we did stop at Safeway in Hilo as we went through there. We hope that Tropical Storm Iselle didn’t do damage to the property so that others will be able to enjoy it, also. Thanks, Kim, for a great time. We appreciated your house, all your snorkeling gear & boogie boards, and especially your flexibility on our departure time. Our 10 year old grandson summed it all up by saying, as we were leaving, “I’m going to miss this place.”"

  • Kapoho family vacation

    "The four of us arrived late on a Monday. The house is exactly as it looks in the pictures. It's modern, clean and very nicely designed. The kitchen is excellent and has just about everything you need to cook just about anything (we love to cook.) The back balcony has a good grill (small but good.) The back yard leads out to jungle so you can grill in your BVDs if you like. Sure there is no AC but the celling fans work great and it's never that hot. The wifi worked great. The TV reception is OK but why are you watching TV?....you're in Hawaii? There is cell service but I never got more than 2 bars on my Verizon Iphone. More importantly, there is enough of a signal to use the navigation app. That noise you hear, is the ocean crashing on the lava about 1 1/2 blocks away. The next morning we walked to the tide pools where the snorkeling is just as good as everyone says. DO NOT forget swim socks. Trying to walk on the slippery lava in flipflops is tricky and ludicrous in bare feet. Once you get in the water, it's all worth it. The fins, masks and snorkels that they keep at the house are good enough for novice snorkelers like us but investing in a good mask and snorkel wouldn't be a bad thing. There are plenty of fins in all sizes so don't both to buy those. Now, there is some grocery shopping you can do in nearby Pahoa, but the two natural food stores don't quite suit carnivores like us. Luckily we stopped at the KTA Super Store on the way out of Hilo which is awesome. They have everything you could need, plus a good bakery, deli and meat department. Prepare for the higher prices, it's Hawaii. Restaurants in nearby Pahoa are ok. We bought some great marinated meats at the KTA and grilled. Breakfast was fruits and breads.....exactly what we wanted. Hilo is about a 30-40 minute drive through lush and amazing scenery. You have to go to the Ahaluanui Park, which is about 15 minutes away. It's a volcanically heated pool where waves crash over and into it. There is some marine life here, but this place is ideal for families with kids. The water is about 5-6 at it's deepest. We rented a 4x4 so we drove to Champagne Pond which made the extra cost of the 4x4 rental totally worth it. It's a bit too far to walk. Cat, the property manager is only two doors down and is very helpful. The owner contacted me after returned and is very very nice. I would definitely stay here again."

The Power of Nature Resides Near Puna District Beach Rentals

There are many things to enjoy during your stay at Puna District beach rentals. Nearby Rainbow State Falls offers an 80-foot waterfall. Its early morning mist often creates a rainbow that spans across the lagoon. Just a little distance from the waterfall, you'll find the Boiling Pots, a series of cascading pools. Watch flowing lava make its way to the ocean, see dolphins play with their young, or soak up some rays while laying on a lava shelf.

Crystal clear water lets you see schools of fish, moray eels, sea turtles, and multi-colored coral reefs.
