Beautiful area-plenty of space for the family
We had a wonderful time in Pahoa. It's a quaint little town close to Hilo, Volcano National Park, wonderful waterfalls, and beautiful beaches. The house is clean, roomy and comfortable. The owner provides lots of little extras to make your stay easier. Brand new high chair and pack n play if needed. Plenty of towels for showers and the pool, which is clear and refreshing. We loved listening to the sounds of nature at night and traveling all over during the day. The owner was quick to respond with any questions or problems we had. We highly recommend this home in Pahoa on the big Island.
We were very happy to have you stay with us at our tropical vacation home in Pahoa. It's nice to hear that you and your family were able to enjoy many of the natural attractions of the Big Island that are near the Pahoa area. We look forward to your next stay with us and we hope you have a wonderful summer.
Needs an overhaul
The pool is nice. The beds in one room are blow up matresses and make noise all night, some are futon pads, the fold out in the living room is broke. Blinds are broken and would not go down all the way. Pillows stained and towels thin and threadbare. The windows were dirty and hard to see out of and mold above the shower in one bathroom, grass in the washer. One of the rules is absurd-have to haul out your own trash??? Who has room in a rental car for bags of trash to haul to the dumps? Very disappointed in this place.
We pride ourselves in providing a comfortable, clean, & well liked vacation home. Please read the other reviews.
This review is suspect considering the fact that we do not know who this person is nor how they were able to post on our site. They are certainly not commenting about OUR vacation home.
I respect my guests & get hundreds a year who are very satisfied with my home along with many repeat guests. All of our beds have mattresses & we replace our linens on a regular basis.
I'll gladly supply responses to any specifics upon request.
Nice secluded place
If you are looking for a 5 star hotel this isn't the place, but it was nice, clean and in secluded area. With the trees all around and a longer driveway, you didn't know you had neighbors. We enjoyed it very much...
A nice home away from home
We enjoyed our stay here. The home is warm and welcoming, is equipped with all the necessary items you may find in your kitchen at home. My husband and I found the home very large for just the two of us, it could easily accommodate two families. There is an inviting lenai to relax on and just take in your surroundings, plenty of room for kids to run and play in the yard as well as a very clean pool to cool off in.
We found Leilani Estates a wonderful neighborhood filled with just NICE people and family oriented. You do need to remember that you are in an amazing rain forest complete with some critters you may not be used to, the sounds of frogs, and on some nights the pitter-patter of rain that can lull you off to sleep like only your mom could when you were a baby.
The owner is great, provided pretty much everything we needed, was quick to respond when we had questions and genuinely cared about our stay in his home!
We had an awesome time, the home is very beautiful with a lot of rooms, we all had a room and there was still 1 left over, near the front door, we didn't even use it because there was so much space. The kids loved the pool, needs a little upgrade, but it was still nice and refreshing. We also had fun with the Coqui frogs, and got to taste a Butter Avocado, so ono. The key thing we really liked, is it was right down the road from my aunties lot Harris Estates on Old Kalapana rd. The only thing I'm not used to, is the heat. Maybe another upgrade to add AC units, that would be nice. However we would definitely return. Thank you for making our weekend enjoyable. We also complied with all the rules, even washed and dried our towels, emptied trash, and stripped linens, which were very simple tasks.
Very comfortable, well equipped home in a tropical setting.
We enjoyed the home very much, but the biggest issue was there isn't air conditioning and that isn't listed in the description. I think that needs to pointed out. We are from the northwest, and are not used to the humidity. So most of the evenings were miserable. The frogs are very loud at night, which enjoyed, but could bother some people. I suspect that is just about everywhere on The big island.
The home is very far away from any decent beach. It is great for visiting the volcano. But if you want the typical white sand beach experience, you will have to drive over two hours. The home was clean and had everything you needed, but did have a mildewy smell. The owner was very interested in that fact and is trying to remedy the problem. We ended up washing the towels before we could use them because of the smell.
The home is large and private. Plenty of beds and the kitchen is very large.
Other Activities: Boating, Bird Watching, Helicopter Tours, shopping, Volcano Park, Catered Parties
