Quiet and Clean, Off the beaten Path
"This little house is great. Our family of 4 (kids 6 and 8) stayed for 3 nights. It's clean and comfortable. The proximity to the tide pools (which are gorgeous) can't be beat. It doesn't have air conditioning, but fans help, and we were not too hot. It's about 20 minutes away from any shopping or restaurants. The fish in the pond were fun to watch. The frogs were loud, but part of staying in this forested area. We did see a few geckos in the house, which may be why we didn't see any bugs in the house."

"The place is every bit as nice as advertised and Sophia was very helpful and accommodating. You should never go to the big island without seeing this side of the island. You should spend a day exploring the volcano, a day at the Hilo farmers market and at wai'Opae tide pools, and a day at waipio valley. I have been to all of the islands and Hilo has the best farmers market of all. We snorkeled captain cook, Mauna lani resort and wai'opea tide pools. We loved them all, but actually liked the tide pools the best. You must go near high tide and you will see the best fish if you swim out a little farther. We never got anywhere close to the crashing waves, but saw tons of fish. If you are reasonably in shape, you should hike down into waipio valley. There is a 1400 waterfall to the left, after you get to the bottom, and to the right is a black sand beach. If you boulder hop on the south end of the beach, you will get to a waterfall pouring into the ocean. On the way to waipio valley, don't miss Hawaii tropical botanical garden and Akaka falls. The botanical garden is the best botanical garden that I have ever seen. As soon as I got off the plane, I took the kids to see rainbow falls and pe'e pe'e falls in downtown Hilo. The kids loved it and it took all of 5 minutes. Ate at cafe pesto and Ken's pancakes in Hilo, loved them both. Went to pahoa fresh fish in pahoa. This place looks like a dive, but I loved the fish and chips. You get a choice of mahi- mahi, ahi, ono or swordfish. Hawaii is enchanting and is my favorite island. Next time I go back, I will spend 4 days on each side of the island. Do not try to drive back and forth across the island more than once. It takes 2.5 hours each way."

"I so loved this sweet vacation home away from home! Perfect for a single person, but can accommodate a family too. Absolutely the Best things about it, are the wonderful private thermal pool, and it's location in the Kapoho Beach community. For a crazy water person like myself, this is HEAVEN! WaI-Opae, Millionaires, Champagne Pond, Kapoho Bay, etc it's all here!
The house has everything you need- down to extra snorkeling gear and noodles.
Yes the Coqui frogs are LOUD here in Puna. Bring earplugs if it bothers you at night. They DO stop around 3/4 am tho.
Jeana was awesome- extremble helpful!"
