"We had such a nice stay. Out of each window is a beautiful view of beautiful tropical plants or the ocean. You feel you are in seclusion however, there are houses are each side. We met one neighbor who was incredibly friendly and wanted to help us prepare the Bread Fruit that was growing in the front yard. However, we were leaving that day. My 9 year old son would now like to tell you about the pond. I think it is good for snorkeling because there are lots of fish and frogs and you can see the frogs swim. The pond was also lava heated so it is very warm and you can open your eyes underwater and not get hurt! I am back- we also enjoyed snorkeling in Champagne pond- it is easy to get and out and good for young and old who afraid of snorkeling."

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 LOVED our stay in this lovely little gem. Rosemarie hustled and cleaned the place a day early for us, despite having just endured a health issue. It is open, safe, gloriously landscaped, clean and close to amazing destinations ~ don't miss the natural pools heated by Pele! You'll be protected by netting but in the open gorgeous and perfumed air. Close to Pahoa, a great town and a boat launch and surf spot. Totally worth the price. Pretty special. Check it out. You'll be happy you did."

"A week spent at the Tidepools House with my extended family was an experience we'll never forget. Comfortable house with everything we needed, fabulous ocean views and our very own warm lagoon at the back steps!! So many beautiful fish and the sunrises were glorious. Sitting on the deck in the evening with the sound of the surf breaking on the reef, palm trees swaying in the breeze and the full moon above was magical. A fantasyland for children and a laid back relaxing atmosphere for adults. We loved it!!"
