"We are still thinking about the wonderful time we spent at this charming cottage in Hilo over Easter weekend. Spending the winters on Maui, we thought we had it all ..... until we stayed in this cottage. The cottage is very comfortable and is equipped with everything we needed, but the star of the show was outside the cottage, which is built right on the water's edge. The small tidal pool which the house is built over is fed by the ocean and is filled with sea life. We became friends with the inhabitants who spent their entire day in the tidal pool, except at very low tide It was like having our very own aquarium - and one that we could climb right in and swim with, some of whom were very friendly and were practically eating out of our hands. Beyond the small tidal pool attached to the property is a fabulous area for snorkeling and easily accessed from the property. A very popular destination for snorkelers, but they don't interfere with the peacefulness of the cottage and pools. Pretty shallow in many places, and with all varieties of sea life, these tidal pools really are a fabulous snorkeling spot for all age swimmers. We saw species we are still trying to identify. We loved the attractions nearby - all volcanic related and very interesting and within an easy driving distance. We chose to sleep outside on the futon on the deck and I think that is what I missed the most when I returned to my bedroom on Maui. To sleep under the stars, under a full moon, with the sounds of the ocean rocking you to sleep -that is heaven."

"We stayed four nights at this very cozy home in Kapoho and had a wonderful time. The owner, Patty, was very kind and helpful, yet not overbearing in any way. The house is pretty easy to get to, approximately 45 minutes from Hilo in a gated community. It's a very cozy, spacious home with comfortable beds and a full kitchen. It was quiet at night, and very relaxing. There's a nice snorkeling spot less than a 5 minute walk down the street. Highly recommended!"

"We stayed from July 3-9 and was a great location for us. Nice quiet location away from the traffic. My 9 yr old daughter enjoyed swimming every day in the lagoon with fishes and turtles. Very relaxing spot. However, it was a little uneasy at first to have our kids sleep down stairs away from main floor. But, they were good with it. Will like to go back again soon. One week was not long enough to enjoy the big island. Check in and out was easy. Note: no cell phone service. Just WiFi."
