  • A Little Piece of Heaven

    "We are still thinking about the wonderful time we spent at this charming cottage in Hilo over Easter weekend. Spending the winters on Maui, we thought we had it all ..... until we stayed in this cottage. The cottage is very comfortable and is equipped with everything we needed, but the star of the show was outside the cottage, which is built right on the water's edge. The small tidal pool which the house is built over is fed by the ocean and is filled with sea life. We became friends with the inhabitants who spent their entire day in the tidal pool, except at very low tide It was like having our very own aquarium - and one that we could climb right in and swim with, some of whom were very friendly and were practically eating out of our hands. Beyond the small tidal pool attached to the property is a fabulous area for snorkeling and easily accessed from the property. A very popular destination for snorkelers, but they don't interfere with the peacefulness of the cottage and pools. Pretty shallow in many places, and with all varieties of sea life, these tidal pools really are a fabulous snorkeling spot for all age swimmers. We saw species we are still trying to identify. We loved the attractions nearby - all volcanic related and very interesting and within an easy driving distance. We chose to sleep outside on the futon on the deck and I think that is what I missed the most when I returned to my bedroom on Maui. To sleep under the stars, under a full moon, with the sounds of the ocean rocking you to sleep -that is heaven."

  • 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!"

  • Good rental property; nice pool

    "This is a modern, well-kept property with two units: one upstairs and one downstairs (we rented the downstairs). It has a private, natural, very-large volcano-heated warm pond to swim in. Excellent location to other thermal swimming sites, including half-a-block to the famous Champagne Pool. Good quality beds and modern appliances. The only downside is not much privacy (it's a duplex, surrounded by other rentals and not much foliage), and not a lot of "Hawaiian character" to the somewhat utilitarian structure. Property would also benefit from more/better outdoor furniture."

  • Great house and wonderful location

    "The house was in a great location just steps away from the tide pools and also a big lagoon with terrific snorkeling. The house itself was very comfortable and nice with a huge deck. We did not use the grill but made good use of the full size washer/dryer."
