"We are family of 3 and rented the house for a couple of weeks. The house is very well equipped, we didn't want for anything. I was working remotely part of the time and the internet and wireless connections were strong enough for me to attend video conferences while people were streaming. There are screens in all the windows and doors which allowed us to open everything and have the sea breeze blowing thru the house. The access to the tide pools is exquisite a short stroll. Everyday we snorkeled! Hilo is close enough for some "city" vibe, Pahoa is a lovely little town, Champagne pond, Poihiki, Uncle Roberts it was a wonderful vacation. If you like sandy beaches go to the kona side of the island!! If you don't mind the lava, jungle and lack of big hotels then the east side is for you. There were plenty of small children around but the lava is sharp! ours is 7 so was no problem."

"We stayed three nights at Babette's cottage and we had a very pleasant time. Babette is a lovely host. The cottage provides everything you need. I stayed at several places in Hawaii, but Babette's place has a very special, positive atmosphere. At night you are surrounded by birds and frogs who make you relax and lull you to sleep. The cottage has a very bright and sunny atmosphere. You will love spending your time there. It is an excellent choice. Thanks again Babette for hosting us, for answering all our questions and giving us plenty of recommendations for the area! We highly appreciated it!"

"We inquired about another property which was not available. when Andre offered us this one. It was a short stay, but very comfortable and enjoyable. The house is spacious and nicely appointed and equipped. The location was pleasant contrast to bustle of Waikiki from which we came. Andre was very helpful in getting us to the place and settled. With Andre's advice we were able to accomplish all our objectives--Kilaeau day and night, waterfalls north of Hilo, a ride around the south and west coasts, stargazing on Mauna Kea, and snorkeling in the tidal pools."

"Our stay at this La Capanna lodge was simply awesome. Our group consisted of 4 adults, 2 kids, and 2 babies. Donna was generous enough to let our big group stay at her lodge. Complete kitchen allowed us to cook 3 meals, large backyard allowed the children to run around, and the cozy fireplace kept us warm at night. Outside patio table and chairs was perfect for a little picnic-feel lunch. Very neatly kept and great location. It allowed us to just drive to the Jagger museum at night to see the lava. There was everything we needed (kitchen supplies, to towels, etc.) Donna was very responsive. We loved everything about this lodge. We did not want a house that was too big. Very cozy and at night, we could huddle around the fireplace and just have a nice family time. 10% off for returning guests! Yes, we will come again for sure!"
