  • Island living with an amazing view

    "My husband and I arrived to lovely fresh anthuriums in the kitchen and soft music playing through the tv. Immediately went outside to see the bay view and to hear the sounds of the ocean. The property has kayak and snorkel stuff to use and we went out each day to explore the bay. When we were there the water was a bit murky but we still managed to see a couple of turtles right there in the protected cove. The red kayak is least likely to tip you over so give it to the beginner or unbalanced person of your group. We enjoyed hanging out on the lanai and in the living room so we could see and hear the ocean. We also enjoyed hearing the ocean as we fell asleep each night. The bed was a memory foam for us, not sure if that's getting replaced in the remodel they've mentioned here. Bonus - there's a washer and dryer so we were able to wash our clothes before we left! We will be coming back to this property on our next trip to the Big Island, we loved it for it's relaxing and peaceful atmosphere as well as a home base for trips to Kona, Punalu'u beach, Waimea, Akaka Falls, and Rainbow Falls. Definitely a home away from home for us. Thank you to Jamie also for all of your help! Some tips: -Use bug spray any time you're going outside or within a few minutes you'll have a generous amount of bites. -Check under the sink in the bathroom, there are some shampoo/conditioners left by previous travelers if you run out of the hotel sized hair care before the stay is over. -The kitchen does have some sugar, salt, pepper, oil, and soy sauce for your use (or it did for us). -Get some manapua from 7-Eleven when you're on the way through the town of Pahoa to get the keys (manapua are steamed buns/bao that come stuffed with char-sui, teriyaki chicken, or other delicious flavors). All 7-elevens have a variety of steamed items. -Try the different eateries in Pahoa, haven't had a bad meal yet at any of them. -Shop at the KTA in Hilo on your way to the house, they have a larger variety of foods and a larger bakery than the Malama Mart in Pahoa (macadamia nut cream pie and apple bananas). Although Malama isn't bad. -Hilo farmer's market is amazing almost any day of the week (Saturday is it's biggest day) but there's also one North of Pahoa on Sundays that is very large. -Leung's Chop Suey House on rt 11 South of Hilo has great cake noodles (and everything else). They are closed Tuesdays. -Ken's has excellent pancakes of course but also try the loko moko there."

  • The Great Escape!

    "Rating Details: I was very 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: Fantastic!! Even with Hurricane Iselle hitting us and the power and water being out for the last part of our stay here, we loved the home and enjoyed our time here! A close walk to the tidepools (amazing!) and the serenity of the area make this worthwhile."

  • 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!"

  • Great stay inspite of the hurricane....very relaxing

    "We arrived the day after the hurricane, not knowing what to expect. Didn't have time to look for another place that afternoon in Pahoa, but were willing to accept "no electricity" during our stay. Ron was helpful in giving us alternative direction to the house because of road closures. Since we were not able to cook, we got to explore local restaurants in Pahoa. There are many good restaurants, and if we had stayed longer, we would have visited them all. The main reason why we liked the place is the adjacent pool. It is so relaxing that we weren't bothered at all by the lack of electricity inside the house. My son spent more time snorkeling outside in the warm pool (so warm that you can spend hours there) and not be tempted to watch the cable TV inside. He said that he found a puffer fish hiding in the rock wall. The pool is the same size is your hotel pool, but enormously more enjoyable. We brought our own snorkel equipment, but the house plenty for you to borrow. Alternatively we spent time at Champagne Pond. Unfortunately we didn't see any turtles there, but found numerous pipe fish and a good size puffer fish. Kapoho got hit hard by the hurricane. No damages to the house. Hopefully electricity can be restored soon so that more people can visit the area."

The Power of Nature Resides Near Puna District Beach Rentals

There are many things to enjoy during your stay at Puna District beach rentals. Nearby Rainbow State Falls offers an 80-foot waterfall. Its early morning mist often creates a rainbow that spans across the lagoon. Just a little distance from the waterfall, you'll find the Boiling Pots, a series of cascading pools. Watch flowing lava make its way to the ocean, see dolphins play with their young, or soak up some rays while laying on a lava shelf. Surrounded by lush vegetation, you can enjoy the scent of exotic flowers and the tastes of fresh tropical fruits. Crystal clear water lets you see schools of fish, moray eels, sea turtles, and multi-colored coral reefs.
