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."

"We really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in the upstairs part of the house and had plenty of room. Nice big living room and kitchen area with a very modern feel. I thought it was decorated very well with plenty of taste and suited our needs perfectly. More than enough cooking utensils with pots and pans and appliances to make anything you want. The house was very clean and well kept along with the neighborhood and general area. Has a large wrap around porch to sit out and enjoy the beautiful weather. The ocean was just a short walk across the street and can be seen from the porch. There is a nice little pond literally on the side of the house that wraps through a few of the neighboring houses that we swam in (has concrete steps right next to the house to get in). We split our trip up into 3 nights at this place and 3 nights in a condo/resort on the Kona/Waikoloa side. At the end of the stay we all wished we had just stayed here the whole time. It was very convenient to see the all Volcanoes and the waterfalls, rain forests, warm springs down the road, and botanical gardens. I think the Kona side is more "trendy" right now for tourists, but this side of the island is the true Hawaii for me. Thanks Jeana."

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 was our first trip to the Big Island, but we hope to return for another stay at Hula Cove in the near future. Hula Cove fit us like a glove. Of course the vista from the lanai was everything we expected and more. Snorkeling in the tide pool at Hula Cove was definitely one of our favorite and most memorable experiences while on the Island. We were very fortunate to have been staying at Hula Cove during the Puna Music Festival. The local residents of Pahoa were so welcoming and friendly, and the local bands put on a fantastic festival... even in the rain. Hula Cove served as the perfect home base for our day excursions to Volcano National Park, South Point, Pahoa and Hilo. It was so wonderful to come home in the evening to Hula Cove after a busy day of sightseeing and unwind on the lanai while watching the sunset. If you want a comfortable place to stay, right on the water, with absolutely stunning views of the ocean, flora and fauna, you should make your reservations to stay at Hula Cove, right now. I guarantee that we will be back. Thank you for a wonderful stay."
