                                                                Super location and the place had everything we needed!

                                                                The house is great and love the tide pools and location.

                                                                Bev S.

                                                                It was hot and humid. Uncomfortable sleeping. Need a window unit. Plus no hot water for showers. They came to fix it but still warm water for 3 minutes and that was it. Otherwise no complaints.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                I am glad to hear that you enjoy my house and its location. I have 2 ceiling fans, one above the bed and another one above the sitting area. I also have stand alone fan that you can move around. I am sorry about the hot water situation. My manager was there to fix it right away.

                                                                Sweet screened porch with ocean breezes, and views (partial). House is well represented in photos.

                                                                Jane C.

                                                                Very short walk to great snorkel spots. Super comfortable bed and chairs. Nice screened porch. Great full kitchen with lots of nice pans, utensils, etc. we would stay here again. Quiet road and neighborhood. Bring bottled water to drink and to make coffee; the tap water doesn't taste good.

                                                                Wonderful in every way!

                                                                Paul E.

                                                                Exceptionally wonderful place on our planet. Two minute walk to lava tidal pools and terrific snorkeling. Kit provided excellent. House super comfortable and very well equipped. Hot tub immaculate and a great way to finish the day or relax after a swim. Pau's recommendations on shopping spot on, lunch in Hilo to Pohoa, dinner at home. Just the way we like it. So much to see in this part of Hawaii. Did I mention wonderful beaches short drive away?

                                                                Cozy and Comfortable

                                                                Judith D.

                                                                Another wonderful stay at Iki Honu. We love the difference in staying on the east side of the island after a few weeks in Kona. The unit is in a great location across from the tide pools.

                                                                Having a hot tub in the backyard is a real bonus and we used it often. The kitchen is well equipped and the unit is perfect for a couple. Lovely and quiet in the evenings, a very relaxing time.

                                                                Location Location Location

                                                                Lisa B.Eugene, OR

                                                                We wanted to be close to the tide pools. This place is a perfect for location to access the pools. It is nicely remodeled and has all the basics we needed. The addtion of condiments was such a big time and money saver. Be sure to stop in and see what is there before you do your grocery shopping. For example, there is already salt and pepper available, as well as many spices and sauces. Just replace as they are used up. The studio set up is fine for us as we are comfortable with being in each others pockets. The grill and the hot tub made this a heaven for after our dips in the tide pools. The lania was a great place with good light and an electrical outlet at the dining table on the lania for writing and working on the computer. If it was raining very hard or cold this might be more difficult but was fine during our stay. The only privacy is in the small bathroom so if you have issues with the very public space this is a detractor. I would not suggest it for honeymooners until the window coverings are able to give more privacy as the bed is very visable from several windows with lots of foot traffic going by all day.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Mahalo for choosing to stay at Iki Honu. We are so happy you enjoyed the house and the Kapoho Tidepools. All of the windows have blinds to give the home privacy, when you've had enough of the ocean view. Thanks again for staying at our Snorkeler's Paradise and we hope to host you again when you wish to visit our corner of the Big Island.
