  • Spacious home, amazing location

    "The Pond House was the perfect weekend home for our group of 4 during a recent visit to the Big Island. The Pond House met all of our needs; spacious accommodations steps away from the beautiful Wai'opae tide pools and about a 30 minute drive to Kalapana to see the lava flow. We would definitely stay at the Pond House again and would certainly recommend it to friends and family looking for peaceful getaway. Thank you Jan for being so responsive to our questions and for being so accommodating. We hope to stay again in the very near future!"

  • We would stay here again!

    "We stayed at the House of the Dancing Turtles for 9 days around Christmas. We had a great time and would stay there again for sure. The gated community is lovely and all of the houses in the neighborhood look to be well cared for, including this one. This property is very private; when you sit on the back lanai or use the lagoon, you will not see a neighbor and will feel like it is your slice of paradise. The back lanai is shaded and cool even during the heat of the day, and is a great place to sit with a cup of coffee during rain (because it does rain on this part of the island). The landscaping is jungle-like and lush. The kitchen has a coffee pot, microwave, stove, oven, rice cooker, toaster, and just about every pan, dish, gadget, or utensil you need to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner there (which we did). We made a fantastic batch of lemon squares using lemons from the yard, which the kids got a kick out of. The laundry room/office makes checking email and doing occasional work easy and the Wi-Fi was reliable. We were able to watch our football team play because they have Dish satellite service. We did use the ohana which has a separate porch overlooking the lagoon and a small kitchen which gave those who slept there privacy. And the lagoon was amazing. We bought floating inflatable chairs with cup holders at the KTA grocery store and spent a lot of time just floating around there and watching the small fish and listening to the birds. The lagoon is deep and shady on one end and shallow and sunny on the other. It is the most lush and amazing back yard I have ever seen and we felt privileged to be able to use it. I had a lot of questions prior to our trip, and the manager answered all of them with patience and thoroughness, and we found her answers to be accurate and honest. This was our first VRBO rental and it far exceeded our expectations."

  • KC's Paradise

    "This was an outstanding location - the house was large and spacious, very well equipped and set up perfectly for two couples. Outside, there is a naturally heated pool which has a therapeutic effect. The famous champagne pool is in walking distance with the volcano only 40 minutes away. Pat, the owner, was gracious and informative - providing us with the best tasting bananas that we have ever had. We would definitely return!"

  • Hutchinson Family Hawaii vacation 2016

    "The property, house and amenities are simply terrific. The location right beside the tide pools, while a terrific asset, became quite literally a threat during the hurricane... though the kids loved every minute of the excitement! Even before we were forced to evacuate, the owner contacted us along with his property custodian and went above and beyond what one would reasonably expect for a rental unit - generally the expectation is to deal with the corporation. This proved invaluable and helped us immeasurably during the, not one, but two hurricane events. We Hutchinsons are a hardy adventurous lot and just rolled with it and made a wild weather event and flooded out home an unforgettable experience. Thanks to Mike the owner for all his help - before, during and after :) The house is lovely, filled not only with the basics, but many extras. Tide pools are simply fantastic - our two week stay on both Kauai and the Big Island revolved a great deal around snorkeling so this was a bonus. Our other big adventure was cycling down to where the molten lava spilling into the sea just around the corner. Incredible to see Kilauea gurgling just after we arrive home. Cheers and thanks"
