An authentic Hawaiian home that is true to its environment
"We came as two moms for a girls trip with our combined four daughters aged 7 to 16. It was the first of three locations we stayed on our Hawaiian adventure, and an excellent low-key place to acclimate, explore and relax. The kitchen is well-stocked, and the house is 15-20 minutes to town, so we made simple meals but also enjoyed area pizza and poke. The kids didn't tire of walking to the wai'opae tide pools to cool off and enjoy snorkeling a high and low tides, or just chasing crabs. We loved listening to the rain on the roof, showering on the lanai, and chasing after the little geckos. It was very convenient for our volcano adventure day. With two bedrooms, two baths and a couch, we had lots of room."

"We throughly enjoyed our (all too short) time at Shangri-La! So private & peaceful! The property is gorgeous (the photos on the listing do not do it justice). My favorite part was swimming in the lagoon - it was like swimming in your own private aquarium. The property's team did a marvelous job of making sure we had directions, were setup, and even called to check on us when there was a tsunami watch! Thank you for an awesome visit! We will definitely be back! Aloha & A hui ho!"

"This house is amazing! When I booked it I had no idea how spectacular it was going to be. It is on the actual Kapoha tide pools but away from the area where the public can access them. The sound of the waves at night is lovely and the snorkelling is some of the best we have ever seen. The house has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. There was just one problem. It was too fantastic and we were reluctant to leave and explore other areas of the big island. Pahoa is a quirky town and we loved the fish and chip shop especially."

"Mon, Mar 2, just returned from 2 wk. stay upstairs in Cedar House at Wai'Opae tide pools. Fantastic variety of fish, great numbers present. Best snorkeling with previous experience over 60 years in south FL from Biscayne to Dry Tortugas, Baja, Costa Rica, Eleuthera, -- just wow. Only Galapagos was better in variety & #s, but we covered a lot more territory there. Wear shoes to get in off the rocks, then put on your short fins. So many places to explore. Quarters are really nice, good layout, 2 bed/2 bath with room for extras if needed. Kitchen is really workable. All appliances work (some VRBOs have problems). Wonderful lanai all around upper floor, quiet n'borhood. Very safe. Convenient to Hawaii Volcanoes NP, Pahoa, Hilo. No AC, but with several sliders (which we left open to locked screens at night) and fans it is comfortable. Winds at beginning of our stay knocked out a lot of power lines. We put everything in the freezer for 36 hours; had no losses. Housekeeper checked on us. Cell service in house spotty, but WIFI is good. A supply of shoes and snorkel gear has been left by prior visitors. Great reference guides as well. We liked sharing the house with geckos. Four adults visited in February 2015. Two of us will return as soon as we can.
Hope this helps. Sue"
