  • Relaxing, Clean, Quiet

    "We stayed at Kapoho Kaiyo while our place was being treated for termites on the other side of the island. It exceeded our expectations. First, it was immaculate! Hawaii, especially the east side can be moist and buggy at times. The house was virtually bug free except for a few critters that are to be expected in the tropics and those were only on the ceiling at night. I have seen more bugs on the mainland. It was bright and cheerful and furnished with taste. The kitchen was well stocked and we had everything we needed. It is a short drive into Pahoa where there are several good restaurants. Don't miss Kaleo's restaurant there. We were within a nice drive of the National Park and got to see the volcano glow right at dusk. Take the time to drive Chain of Crater's Road. It is spectacular even in the rain. Uncle Robert's in Kalapana was a fun adventure on Wednesday night. The warm pond was a 5 minute drive and well worth the experience. Floating there is like no other place. The frogs at night were not a problem for us as we like their voices. The owner was very easy to work with and promptly refunded our deposit. Mars, the local contact, was so helpful and friendly but not at all intrusive. We loved the airiness and open feeling of the house and there is plenty of room. We are looking forward to coming back and staying there. It is such a stark contrast with its lushness and greenery to the also beautiful, west side of the island with its open space and lava fields. You won't go wrong staying here!!"

  • 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."

  • So relaxing!

    "We are a family of 3 and this cottage was the perfect amount of space for us. It was so much fun to swim in the beautiful ocean outside your back door. The geothermal "pools" are just spectacular! Bring your own snorkel gear. We were in the water everyday checking out all the beautiful fish. Many people pay good money to get a snorkeling trip like the one in your own backyard. We saw tons of beautiful fish everyday and even swam beside 2 Sea Turtles! It was truly spectacular! House was well stocked with towels and everything that was needed. The master bedroom is very small and the bed not too comfy. But the second room of 2 bunks (4 beds) was great. If you are a family of 4 or 5 this is still plenty of space. It's a cute funky beach cottage and we LOVED every second. If you are not big on lizards and geckos you may be a little squeamish! However, we LOVED seeing all the geckos outside and in the house. There was one in particular that must live behind the cupboards in the kitchen. Numerous times we gently removed it from the house and every time it wound up back inside. My 7 year old daughter just adored catching and releasing geckos. It was hours of entertainment. Lots of crabs down in the "pool" too. She loved seeing them and we did catch one baby one while there to check out and release. The crabs are really quick. They don't like humans and move out of sight when you get near. So again nothing to worry about if your not a big animal lover like we are. The only negative was that along side of this property is the public access route. So there is a constant stream of people walking alongside your property to access the pools as well. We stayed Monday through Thursday which I'd consider the slow part of the week and there was still a steady flow of people each day. So it wasn't really as private as I would've liked but guess that's the price you pay to be somewhere as gorgeous as this. Others want to see it too :) We'll be back! Mahalo!"

  • great get away

    "Being in this awesome tropical get away is a must. So close to the tide pools a short one or two block walk. The champagne ponds were so nice and a short drive to the warm ponds was a treat. We would totally stay there again. Monie and Jim Gentry"
