Great House, Wonderful Location
"This was our first trip to the Big Island, but we hope to return for another stay at Hula Cove in the near future. Hula Cove fit us like a glove. Of course the vista from the lanai was everything we expected and more. Snorkeling in the tide pool at Hula Cove was definitely one of our favorite and most memorable experiences while on the Island. We were very fortunate to have been staying at Hula Cove during the Puna Music Festival. The local residents of Pahoa were so welcoming and friendly, and the local bands put on a fantastic festival... even in the rain. Hula Cove served as the perfect home base for our day excursions to Volcano National Park, South Point, Pahoa and Hilo. It was so wonderful to come home in the evening to Hula Cove after a busy day of sightseeing and unwind on the lanai while watching the sunset. If you want a comfortable place to stay, right on the water, with absolutely stunning views of the ocean, flora and fauna, you should make your reservations to stay at Hula Cove, right now. I guarantee that we will be back. Thank you for a wonderful stay."

"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!"

"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."
