  • Awesome location

    "We really enjoyed our stay at Honu Cove! The house is very nicely decorated and very clean. We loved listening to the waves crashing against the lava all the time and the views were spectacular! We did seem to spend a bit more time than we would have liked driving to Hilo and back, but the location made it worth the drive! I would definitely stay here again!"

  • Great place, Amazing people !

    "Our stay at Tropical Garden Grove was all we expected and more. The cottage is very cozy and comfortable. We found the location to be very convenient for all the activities and sight-seeing if you have a car; Volcano, waterfall, snorkeling... Our last day coincided with Hurricane Iselle. The owners where exceptional in helping us get through it. They went the extra mile by giving us many options and helping us re-plan the end of our vacation. Thanks again, it was a very stressful day and with your support we felt more helped then any hotel we could’ve stayed in, not to mention that you had to deal with the storm as well ! We recommend this location both for the kindness of the owners and the great escape you will find in its magnificent garden."

  • A Labor of Love

    "Our trip was amazing and the property exceeded our expectations! The owner greeted us with beautiful flowers and a true kindness. We thoroughly enjoyed the gorgeous and fastidiously clean house, grounds and pool! The geckos greeted us as we ate papaya on the deck. The frogs were a beautiful lullaby to put us to sleep on this manicured historical site. A true labor of love by the owners! Mahalo for the extraordinary memory!"

  • Spacious house in great location!!

    "We stayed here for almost a week at the beginning of April. We dealt with Juan who was very friendly, helpful, informative, honest & willing to answer any questions. He was hospitable & genuinely all about making our stay the best ever. PROS: -the house was clean, big & spacious (there was only 2 of us so we had more than enough room). The inside was not cluttered with too much furniture, decorations & other stuff but instead nicely furnished & organized. -the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking, the couch was super comfy (so was the bed), the comforters were soft (it was nice to have those instead of just sheets to cover ourselves with as some nights can get cooler), the master bath was huge, water pressure good, plenty of hot water, the second 1/2 bath upstairs was great to have, plenty of closet & dresser space for our things, lot's of different lighting & switches to play with, many beach accessories to make use of (the beach chairs were super). -good internet connection. -less than a minute to the black sand beach & very close to other places of interest. -located in a nice, quiet area (even though the house is right by the road the traffic is very minimal). -not much vegetation around the house (good because the bugs stay away & there's plenty of light during the day, bad because there is less privacy). CONS: -no lamps on the night stands (made it difficult to read in bed without disturbing my better half since the main light had to be on). -poor lighting in the master bath (lights above the mirrors have not been installed, just the ceiling light). -no black out drapes on the lanai doors (for those persons that need dark to sleep……..so no sleeping in I guess!!). -no screens on both lanai doors (did not pose a problem for us during the day but once it got dark and the bug activity increased we had to keep them closed. But since the nights were still a bit cool it did not bother us too much because we were able to get a nice breeze going from all of the other windows). Also, there is one huge window by the stairs that would make a big difference, but for some reason it does not have a screen so we didn't open it. -no cable tv (for those rainy days or relaxing nights). Also, very limited stock of movies (we rented from town a few times). -no phone reception. -no A/C (rarely ever need it anyway), but only 1 fan upstairs from what I recall. This house is perfect for a larger group or family. Worth checking out."
