Beautiful little gem in Kapoho
"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."

"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."

"This is a wonderful home and is in a great location to explore the Hilo side of the Big Island. The house is beautifully decorated with Hawaiian and Polynesian art and the craftsmanship in the home is outstanding. The view from the bedrooms is spectacular and the sea breeze is delightful. The location allows easy access to the tide pools and Champagne pond. The former is like snorkeling in aquarium with beautiful fish and coral. Having bikes at the house was great. Make sure you go to the top deck and view the stars at night, you can actually see the milky way, satellites, and multiple shooting stars on a clear night. The neighbors were so nice and helped us to navigate the neighborhood and told us about the local farmers market which is a must see if you enjoy art and fresh produce. Overall if you are thinking about staying on the Hilo side of the Big Island and want to experience true Hawaiian living this is the place."

"This is a beautiful Hawaiian home with a million dollar view, 24 hours a day. House faces the Pacific, waves crash and trade winds blow just beyond the front doors, the night's are inky black and the Milky Way cutting across millions of stars seems just beyond arms reach. And all of this is only a 5 minute walk to the best salt water snorkeling in the world [and I've snorkeled all over the world]. My wife and I were there with our 2 older sons, we snorkeled every morning then road tripped each afternoon all over the Big Island.
Yes I would recommend this house to others and yes I would gladly return. I never met the owner in person, but she was a pleasure to deal with over the phone and called to check on us during the week
This house was our refuge, our peace, our retreat for a week. We already miss it and continue to visit it in our dreams."
