  • A Little Piece of Heaven

    "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."

  • Beautiful Kapoho View

    "We immediately fell in love with the arrival in the house. It has a lot of charm and is very tastefully decorated. The kitchen is huge. The covered porch is a dream, just like the view. On listening to the birdsong morning, just wonderful. The whole booking process was very friendly and very well documented. Will be back soon! We hope we can come again. Much obliged."

  • Great views and Tidepool Access

    "Our family loved the ocean view from the upstairs lanai, though the passage to that came through a bedroom. And the location for snorkeling the tidepools is tremendous. The house is generally well-equipped, though there was no colander in the kitchen or working remote control for the dvd player. It's a good choice for a group, though a little more attention to small details would help."

  • KC's Paradise

    "Great house, nice view. This is our third stay in Kapoho Beach and each one gets better. The layout is such that my sister and brother-in-law had their own side for privacy. The kitchen was well equipped, it was just a bit small since we had two cooks in the mix but the meals they created from locally sourced food (Maku'u Market on Sundays, Hilo Market Wed and Sat, Shoprite north of Hilo) were fantastic. We are avid outdoor adventurers and this area makes a great base for snorkeling, biking and hiking. Rental arrangements went off without a hitch. Owners stayed in touch during the gale force wind induced power outage."
