Best snorkeling on the island in the tide pools just around the corner!
"My 8yr old and I loved staying at this beautiful home. Home was stocked with everything we needed to include noodles, beach towels, boogie boards and even snorkel gear, barbecue, and large screened in lanai. Having laundry on site was a huge plus with plenty of detergent and fabric softener. We absolutely loved the outdoor showing that had plenty of hot water, privacy, and even all the necessary toiletries within the outside shower! Inside there was ample supply of bath products for personal hygiene and paper products. The lava rock pool was incredibly warm (slippery to get in and out of so wear good water shoes there and at the tide pools). Adult swim shoes on property but none for kids. Very relaxing! My son especially enjoy being able to play games on the computer in the house that even had paper available to print. Terry was super easy to book thru and contact. Many books and local tour books available. Secluded and a bit of a drive from the main cities so flying into and out of Hilo is best and don't recommend doing any morning activities in Kona or Kohala just because of the drive time but afyernoon tours on Kona side would be okay. Bought earplugs for the frogs based on previous reviews but didn't need them at all as they were not that loud. Highlight for my son....me catching geckos around the property and even a baby gecko...so cute! Mahalo Terry for such a fantastic place!!!!"

"Shangrila is an oasis of island beauty. Private lava vent heated lagoon with lots of fish to see while snorkeling - large koi and bright yellow and blue schools of small fish. Lots of room to relax, private and quiet location close to Pahoa where groceries etc are readily available. Check out the gourmet hot dog truck on the way - you won't be disappointed. Sunday is the outdoor market day on the road to Hilo, worth going. Champagne Pond is located here too. So much good to say - just go is my best advice!!! Brady is a wonderful caretaker who will make sure your needs are met while there, and Joe makes awesome potpourri. Can't remember the gardeners name (so sorry!) you did a great job - both routine and the emergency need that arose due to wild winds while there - exciting to say the least."

"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."
