  • Delightful stay off the beaten path

    "We recently stayed here over Christmas, and could not think of a better place. Loved the cool air and chorus of frogs at night, and the cottage itself was nice and had plenty of room for my wife and I and our two sons. The lagoon is great fun- we had a lot scheduled, so only spent one day around the house, and spent much of it in the lagoon. If you stay here, be sure to fly into Hilo- we flew into Kona, and had activities scheduled in that area the next day, so spent more time driving than we would have liked, but we did get to see much of the island. Apparently, there is a good reason they call this the Big Island! Thank you, Ilse, for opening your home to us, and the Christmas card was a nice touch and very much appreciated!"

  • Terrific view and swimming pond terrific

    "Waking up to surf sounds and palm trees and swimming in the lovely pond on the property was a real treat! The property would be good for two couples-it was just the two of us. The kitchen had what we needed to prepare food and spices. Walking distance to some amazing snorkeling and ocean access swimming. Not a lot of traffic and nights were quiet. Only room for improvement would have been air conditioning-it was very hot while we were there but it was higher than average temperatures. We greatly enjoyed our holiday there. It was a reasonable drive to Hilo, Volcano national Park, coffee mills and other sights of interest."

  • Great place to relax

    "This was our 2nd stay at the Pond House and we will be back. We love everything about this place - the warm pool in the backyard, the outdoor shower, the comfy layout and furnishings, the covered lanai. It is a just a short walk to the Kapoho Tidepools. Loved the quiet, the sounds of birds, the privacy. The fans worked well, we were very comfortable. The water toys and beach shoes were great to have. Absolutely love this house!"

  • Hurricane Iselle

    "Just before we arrived Hurricane Iselle landed... Unfortunately it packed a punch to the beautiful home we were to have stayed in. With no water or power we were forced to seek another place to stay. Our heart went out to the owners of this home and the island in general. The owners were devistated I'm sure, but were very accommodating. They made sure we received a full refund prior to our arrival and communicated with us every step along the way. Needless to say we didn't get to stay in their lovely home but we plan to in the near future. They get 5 stars for being gracious and kind! We even drove over during our stay for a day to try and help out the owner and community in any way we could but unfortunately couldn't get into the community to do so. I'm sure that we would have had the time of our lives at this home! Thank you for the opportunity, we will be renting your property soon!!"
