    "OUTSTANDING in many ways. Easy access to Snorkelling and swimming, stunning schools of Moorish Idols. Beautiful Hawaiian hardwoods used in the kitchen and living room. Well equipped kitchen, we enjoyed the lanai for our meals, and the Geckos on the deck were good buddies. Highly recommended. We have already booked to come back (twice ! ) in 2015."

  • Still wonderful!

    "Rating Details: I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: First visit in 10 years...(and 3rd stay at Lagoon House!) The house is very much the same. Still very comfortable, but perhaps in need of a kitchen update. The lagoon is still spectacular. We were there during Hurricane Iselle, though, and the lagoon needed a bit of cleaning afterwards, and the back wall to Champagne Pond was damaged (the one to the left, that is just piled rocks, with no concrete) The house did great. The living room furniture is a bit uncomfortable (hard), but we really didn't spend much time in there. Note that the downstairs bedroom is completely separate from the upstairs (no interior stairs), and right on the water. Not appropriate for younger kids. We will definitely be back. This place is all about the LOCATION! Lagoon, lagoon, lagoon!"

    "This house is well built!! The owner makes it a home away from home. It is clean, got good vibes, surrounded by beautiful art work, island flavors from a regal native local who is full of ALOHA, knowledgeable, and the owner!! We slept so good feeling the ocean breeze and waking up in the morning right on the shore line with nothing in front of us but water, dolphins, whales, fish, geothermal pond and coconut trees. We went to Hawaii! We are coming back again!! we recommend it to family, many friends and clients. We are lucky she still owns the home because it is our families retreat vacation home for years! Mahalo."

  • Hawaiian Paradise!

    "We stayed at Rosie's Retreat from February 1st to 14th. Fell in love with it upon arrival! Rosie is the sweetest person you will ever meet! Greeted with big hugs, we felt right at home from the minute we arrived. Words cannot explain how beautiful the cottage is! Set in the middle of the Hawaiian jungle, you have luxuries such as an outdoor shower, multiple ceiling fans, well equipped kitchen, movies, books, beach chairs, and a really comfortable king sized bed, to name a few! Rosie even supplies the best tour book you will ever find on the Big Island of Hawaii and she would come every week with fresh towels and sheets. The cottage is very well maintained and clean. The location, we found perfect - only 1 mile from the Kapoho Tidal Pools, close to the warm pond, and the drive down Hwy 137 will bring you to so many breathtaking sites, and then right out to the new black sand beach. If you are more adventurous, travel north on 137 and hike down the trail by the big old truck & find the lava swimming pool! Amazing snorkeling - but go when the surf is not too high. It is off to your left at the end of the trail (around the first lava ridge to your left). We couldn't imagine staying any where else on the island. Kapoho is in a little banana belt of the Puna side of the island and our weather was phenomenal! Should you be considering booking this beautiful little cottage, you won't regret it! We loved every minute we were there!"
