  • beautiful vacation place

    "This was a wonderful vacation and our first staying at Honu Kai although we have stayed in other properties in Kapoho. The house was very well maintained with lovely grounds and a five minute walk to the tide pools where we swam and snorkeled every day. The setting is peaceful and serene and a close drive to Pahoa for supplies or a nice dinner out. We loved driving the Red road to the hot ponds----also very close and had a great massage at Kalani health resort. Thank you Honu Kai, we will miss you!"

  • Wonderful, peaceful. Perfect family getaway

    "This home has everything you need for a great stay in Kapoho. It is remote, quiet and in the best location of the Big Island. The evening breezes keep the house relatively cool. The sound of the frogs at night is delightful and better than traffic noises. The private pond is huge and has everything to see. Go night swimming and view the milky way! We dont want to leave and plan to return again as soon as we are able. The house feels like home. Sophia was very available to fix a few things and is an excellent property manager. Mahalo."

  • 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."

  • A beautiful place

    "We are just back from 12 days at Hibiscus House. It was our 4th visit and we keep on returning because, having tried a number of houses in Kapoho and elsewhere on the island, this is the place we enjoy most. The landscaping is very beautiful with an abundance of flowering trees and shrubs, the yard is large and the tide pool warm and very relaxing. We liked the new rock wall around it. The house itself is comfortable, spacious and nicely furnished. The kitchen comes with everything you need for food prep.We spend all our time out on the huge lanai. There's enough space that, with a number of family members visiting, you can still find a quiet place to read. This time we were all adults but we have visited with children and the place works very well for all them too. We so appreciate our holidays at this special home and hope to return"
