"This four bedroom, four bathroom was perfect for our family get-a-way. Everything about this house and it's location was wonderful for us. I took my two grandchildren into the warming pond the first morning for a cool down. They were a little leery at first but once in they loved it. We walked to the Kapoho tide pools (about 5 minutes) every day to snorkel. Our 5 year old could pick out every fish that was in the movie Finding Nemo including turtles.
I highly recommend this great home."

"Loved staying here our first trip to Hawaii. Having a pool to ourselves was really wonderful.
Plenty of privacy, and close to shopping and Hilo.
The most relaxing part of our trip. THANK YOU GISELLA."

"The place is every bit as nice as advertised and Sophia was very helpful and accommodating. You should never go to the big island without seeing this side of the island. You should spend a day exploring the volcano, a day at the Hilo farmers market and at wai'Opae tide pools, and a day at waipio valley. I have been to all of the islands and Hilo has the best farmers market of all. We snorkeled captain cook, Mauna lani resort and wai'opea tide pools. We loved them all, but actually liked the tide pools the best. You must go near high tide and you will see the best fish if you swim out a little farther. We never got anywhere close to the crashing waves, but saw tons of fish. If you are reasonably in shape, you should hike down into waipio valley. There is a 1400 waterfall to the left, after you get to the bottom, and to the right is a black sand beach. If you boulder hop on the south end of the beach, you will get to a waterfall pouring into the ocean. On the way to waipio valley, don't miss Hawaii tropical botanical garden and Akaka falls. The botanical garden is the best botanical garden that I have ever seen. As soon as I got off the plane, I took the kids to see rainbow falls and pe'e pe'e falls in downtown Hilo. The kids loved it and it took all of 5 minutes. Ate at cafe pesto and Ken's pancakes in Hilo, loved them both. Went to pahoa fresh fish in pahoa. This place looks like a dive, but I loved the fish and chips. You get a choice of mahi- mahi, ahi, ono or swordfish. Hawaii is enchanting and is my favorite island. Next time I go back, I will spend 4 days on each side of the island. Do not try to drive back and forth across the island more than once. It takes 2.5 hours each way."

"We spent a memorable week at Ka Lani Kai celebrating 35 years of marriage, and found it and its surroundings to be ideal for our adventurous needs. Not only was the cottage warm and comfortable, but the neighborhood presented a relaxed atmosphere, far away from the hectic tourism on the Kona side. We found it a convenient starting place for our several road trips to the furthest north, south, east, and west corners of the island, and our trusty GPS always got us there and back; we especially liked the Red Road, and "tunneling" through the tree canopy. While the enormous tidal surges brought on by hurricane Olaf prevented snorkeling, it did provide memorable views (and photos) of enormous waves breaking over lava formations; during the highest tides sea water flowed down the path next to the cottage, overflowing the pond temporarily, but a phone call to Jeana informed us "not to worry". Our visit to the Big Island was nearly perfect, and Ka Lani Kai even better!"
