  • Romantic getaway

    "The Bali Temple felt like and was a luxurious getaway. Beautiful view of the ocean across the lava fields from the palatial four poster bed, nice bathroom with fluffy towels and jacuzzi, comfortable sitting and dining areas, and well equipped kitchen. Thoughtfully decorated and stocked without feeling awkwardly lived in, it was a wonderful spot for our last 3 days on The Big Island, from which we explored Puna, Volcano, & Hilo. Hilo Bay Cafe was delicious but make sure to get an outdoor table. Loved the Ahalanui thermal pool in the evening, snorkeling at Kapoho tide pools, and walking to Uncle Robert's Market. Be here for that on Wednesday night! It was a highlight of our trip. Had hoped to see the flowing lava nearby too but it was not a 30-45 min walk from the parking area as the guards told us, but more like a couple hrs. After about 4 miles w/o appropriate sun cover or hydration, we turned back. After nightfall would be better than early morning but expect a significant hike in the dark. We loved the Bali Temple and would love to return someday to do things we didn't get to do in the area like the lava tree park, Champagne pond, hit the galleries and shops in Hilo, the botanic gardens and waterfalls north of Hilo, the black sand beach nearby, and return to Uncle Robert's."

  • Everything you need to enjoy the Big Island

    "This is a beautiful house in a quiet residential neighborhood with complete privacy. It has all the amenities and more. It is walking distance (15 min) to Uncle Robert's market and restaurant and to the ocean as well. The owner was very accomodating of my changes in plans as well. The house is very reasonably priced, and I highly recommend it!"

  • Relaxing stay

    "Our stay was very enjoyable and relaxing. Jeana was fantastic with all of our questions and very accommodating. The house was fully equipped with all the things we needed to prepare and cook our meals there. We snorkeled every day sometimes twice a day. We would definitely recommend to any of our friends!"

  • Great Location

    "First time to the big island. Kapoho ponds was unlike anything I had experienced. Walked a few feet and swam in a 90 degree pond, crystal clear with fish and things to look at. Every morning and evening we were in the pond. Kids loved it as much if not more than the adults. Great snorkeling at champagne pond just a few houses away. Spectacular snorkeling at the Kapoho tide pools just a 5 minute drive. And then there's red road. Drive all the way down to the end of red road on Wednesdays for a great time. Small-ish house in gated community. We had three adults and two kids and there was plenty of room. The bed in the master needs a memory foam mattress, too bouncy for me, both my wife and I had a difficult time getting comfortable. But not so much that it ruined our experience. Just wake up and hit the warm pond to feel refreshed. There is no dishwasher, but that was no problem. They need to either replace the knives or get a better knife sharpener, and wood or plastic cutting board. Other than that, a fantastic place in a fantastic spot and I would come back again. GREAT Value."
