  • Amazing location. Would stay again.

    "4.5 stars. We enjoyed staying at Hibiscus House. If you go to the Big Island, you are missing out if you only stay near Kona. The location was perfect for exploring Volcano National Park, the tide pools right down the street and the natural beauty of the rainforest. Can't say enough about the beautiful and easy snorkeling 5 minutes away on foot. Be ready for an adventure, this part of the island is amazing, but not touristy-no resorts here! We rented the top floor of the house, and it was as shown in the pictures. There is no a/c but the house cools off when all the windows and doors are open. This lets in the natural breezes and also the sound of tiny coquis frogs loudly chirping at night. If you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs. The sleeping arrangements worked for six of us, the kitchen was stocked with what you need to cook, and the huge lanai was my favorite part of the house. We utilized the large table on the lanai for every meal and coffee early in the morning. The kids spent time picking tropical fruits and playing in the warm tide pool in the yard. The house is carpeted (not the kitchen) and I wish it had tile instead. I don't think it was damp because we were careful to remove shoes and rain gear outside, but with the humidity, it just felt like it. That is a small suggestion for future updates, but it did not hinder our enjoyment or fun! We would stay here again."

    "Mahalo nui for a wonderful stay here at Hale Pilialoha. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend here and being able to have our ohana over with us was definitely a plus. The house was beautiful. (the website doesn’t do it justice!) and we would totally stay here again in an instant. Mahalo nui, The Keaukaha ohana"

  • 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."

  • Great House!

    "This was a fabulous house and suited our needs perfectly! We are planning to go there again next year. The contact people and cleaning person were all so nice and obliging. Could not have asked for anything more."
