  • Looking forward to coming back soon.

    "We had such a relaxing, comfortable time here, and daydream about our return! Jan has created a comfortable, informal, Island-style atmosphere that makes you feel at home right away. With the short path to the tidal pools a few steps away, the location couldn't be more convenient. The lush vegetation surrounding the house and tidal pond creates privacy that lets the the screened lanai be an extension of the living space, with day beds and rattan dining set. Jan has planted orchids from her farm everywhere in the garden, and there are orchids in every room in the house. We had a wonderful, informative tour of her orchid farm while we were there. The spacious kitchen is very well stocked with all kinds of cookware and appliances so we always ate at home with groceries from Pahoa or Hilo and perfectly ripe fruit from the Farmer's Markets. We also borrowed some of the provided swim/snorkeling gear for visits to the adjacent Tidal Pools and to the Alahanui Warm Pond a few miles down the road. Friends joined us for a few days, and the additional outside shower house gave us all elbow room. There is an ample library of travel books, a scrapbook with local recommendations, plus TV, WiFi, and games -- and laundry room with even more books! We were charmed by the little green geckos that discreetly patrol the walls and the sounds of the doves and other birds. Jan was a most hospitable and considerate host and made us feel the true spirit of Aloha. We can't wait to return, and hope that there will be a vacancy!"

  • Great views and Tidepool Access

    "Our family loved the ocean view from the upstairs lanai, though the passage to that came through a bedroom. And the location for snorkeling the tidepools is tremendous. The house is generally well-equipped, though there was no colander in the kitchen or working remote control for the dvd player. It's a good choice for a group, though a little more attention to small details would help."

  • 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."
