"Yes, there was a neighbor who enjoyed swimming in the buff, but that's OK as we enjoyed doing the same. Though suits shouldn't come off until you are in the pool as the backyard doesn't have much privacy from any direction. Beds were not very comfortable as new mattresses are needed. Bugs are attracted to lights at night, so if you don't want them in your bedroom, turn on the bathroom light and that's where they'll go. Unfortunately, you can also expect a bathroom sink full of tiny flies upon waking in the morning. Kitchen cupboards are very large and do not have pulls, so they were quite awkward to use. And there are no shelves or dressers in the bedrooms for unpacking clothes, so you will likely live out of your luggage. Gatherings at night have to be in one of the two bedrooms as there is no great room or even a family room with a TV. That being said, the outdoor thermal pond is fabulous, the location is very, very quiet and we had a nice time. Get plenty of supplies before you arrive because it is a haul back to town. Beaches on this side of the island are mostly rock and not really swimmable, compared to Kona side. And the pace of living is a whole lot slower, but that's a nice change of pace, in my opinion. I would recommend this property, but be sure you know what you're getting into before you get there so there are no surprises."

Snorkeller's Dream! Great spot to explore this less-developed side of the island!
"We absolutely loved waking up to such great views! You can enjoy the tidepools from just about everywhere in the house, but of course the best part is swimming in them!
The house is nicely finished, decorated, and supplied with everything you could need from kitchen stuff to beach towels to coolers and more. The layout is a little quirky with the exterior stair, but hey this is a vacation home in Hawaii; lots of things in Hawaii are outdoors because they CAN BE!
We enjoyed being a little bit off the beaten path in such a beautiful area of the island, but having great access to Volcano, Pahoa, and Hilo."

"Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us. Home was so comfy, equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We checked in at nigh, so thanks for leaving the light on. Walking into softly playing Hawaiian music, fruits and snacks was such a treat. This home was so clean. I am grateful for all the essentials in the kitchen, made cooking and cleaning a breeze. Home is located a short walking distance to the best snorkeling on the Island. Such a peaceful environment. We truly enjoyed our stay here!! thanks again!"

"My wife and I had the opportunity to stay at Shangrila for four nights in May. Everything about the experience was fantastic! Upon arrival Brady gave us a tour of all the features on the property and gave us some suggestions for local events that were taking place. The outdoor bedroom in the middle of the lagoon was fabulous and great sleeping outdoors and waking up to the beautiful outdoors. Snorkeling was great in the warm waters of the lagoon and the variety of fish was great to see. My wife fell in love with Charlie, one of the resident koi fish, along with the puffer fish. There were even four Humuhumunukunukuapua'a to find in the waters. There were bicycles for us to use and we went riding over to the Waipio Tide Pools just so we wouldn't feel so lazy lounging around Shangrila all day! The outdoor bathroom was a great feature and makes you want to build one in your own home one day. All in all a great stay in Kapoho! We hope to be back one day to enjoy again! Mahalo!"
