  • A Month in Paradise

    "My husband and I spent a month in this paradise. Throughout that time, various friends came to stay. The house is inviting, warm, and comfortable, with all the amenities you could want. The beds are great, we all slept soundly. The gardens are luscious and green, with specks of color everywhere. Bird life is plentiful. We ate avocados and pomelos from the trees. Nearby is Pahoa, snorkeling in Kapoho Tide Pools, swimming in warm pool at Ahalanui Park, and convenient to the Volcano National Park for hikes... took many walks in the neighborhood. Mahalo Audrey, for sharing your acre of paradise and we look forward to returning next year!"

  • Great little house, would stay again

    "This is a great little house on a quiet street. It is solidly built too. I road out a category 1 hurricane in it. The house didn't even shudder. It is nicely appointed and very comfortable. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because of 2 things. The first is not under the control of the owners. It is that the internet service is poor from the carrier. It cuts in and out and goes very slow at peak usage times. I was working while staying there and needed good internet. This interrupted my work. If you are on vacation and just need it for e-mail and such every once in awhile, you would probably not notice. The second is not a big deal really. The dryer needs some work or replacement. It works, but doesn't shut itself off. That said, the owners were responsive to my needs and very helpful. The place was as least as nice as the pictures. Oh, and the water tastes great. I would suggest going to the Maku'u Farmers Market on Sunday. Go hungry and eat from the vendors. Do all your produce shopping there to save money and get high quality goods. Eat at Kaleo's and LaQuenn's (sp) in Pahoa. The public pool in Pahoa is the nicest I have ever seen. It is free, clean, well staffed and not very crowded. Due to the hurricane, many of the things I wanted to see were not accessible to me. I will come back to see them."

  • Beautiful spacious home!

    "This was my first time booking a home thrugh VRBO so I was a bit apprehensive specially after reading the reviews from previous renters. Let me tell you that from the beggining Susan was the very nice and understanding due to payment issues and assure me that everything was ok and that my rental days were still reseved. After landing in Hilo I called susan and she gave me the door code and because we had arrived at night she was not going to be meeting us at the home, which it was ok with us. The drive to the home is scarry at night specially not knowing the area but during the day is beutiful. When we got to the home we were amazed on how beutiful the place was(better than the pictures). My kids were so excited, the house was clean. Each bedroom was well decorated, window covering had some wear and tear but no major thing. The Bathrooms were all stock with hand soap and toilet paper. The kitchen was well equiped with everything you need to cook and clean your dishes with. The laundry room had its laundry soap and dryer sheet to wash. The sofas in the living room had some wear and tear but like I said no major things. All I could say is that they though about everything to make us feel at home (even having a high chair for my daughter). My only complain was the lizards (too many) LOL. Thanks so much Susan and Tim we loved your home and the area (leilany estates) is beautiful. We are even thinking on looking for real estate in that area."

  • 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!"

Pahoa Travel Tips

Discover Hawaii's Volcano With Pahoa Vacation Rentals

Located in the Puna District near Kilauea Volcano, Pahoa vacation rentals are less than an hour from Volcano National Park. A trip to this area offers spectacular views of the world's most active volcano. Watch ash plumes fill the sky and eruptions flow from the volcano's tubes. Tours explore lava tubes, craters, and steam vents. Locals celebrate the volcano as the fine work of the goddess Pele. At night from the dining room of your rental home in Pahoa you can watch the red glow of lava as it makes its way down to the ocean.

Explore Nature From Pahoa Vacation Houses

Pahoa vacation houses are a good starting point for enjoying the Big Island. From Mid-November to April, humpback whales make the waters surrounding Hawaii, their home. Private lanais with views of the Pacific Ocean provide a relaxing place to watch dolphins and sea turtles as they swim and play. Mango trees line roads from Kapoho to Kalapana, and you'll find a hot spring lagoon open to the public near Pohoiki Bay. While many people think of Hawaii's white and golden sand beaches, the Puna District is home to the state's black beaches. Formed from black lava stone, Beach Naupaka and Kehena Black Sand Beach create a striking background to the white waves of the ocean.

Enjoy the Water Near Puna District Beach Rentals

In the Puna District, beach rentals line the shore, putting you close to water activities like kayaking and swimming. At nearby Kapoho, you can snorkel in marine-sanctuary tide pools. Ahalnue Beach Park offers a geothermal-heated tide pool warmed to over 90 degrees. Relax and let the water massage your body, known as Watzu. If you prefer an actual massage, schedule a Lomi Lomi massage to help your relax.
