  • The location was wonderful.

    "We really enjoyed staying in this house. It is a long way to most things from this area but it feels more like Hawaii then a hotel. There are things that could be improved about the property that would be easy. First, it needs new sheets of some quality that fit the bed. The sheets appeared as old as I and did not stay on during the night. Though the kitchen was fairly well equipped it could use a decent baking sheet and coffee filters. Imagine having to drive 20 min. for your first cup of coffee. The white bath towel was permanently stained or dirty. We could not get the cable guide to update and work well. These things can easily be improved, and I am still happy I stayed there. The fish and turtles were wonderful."

  • Asian haven

    "Upon driving up & seeing the welcoming hibiscus flowers placed on outside and inside, then walking into the home welcomed by the Hawaiian music and cute tokonoma area for taking off shoes, we felt the aloha. Comparing this place to other homes we've stayed in, well we have to say... no comparison! We felt SO comfortable & saw not one creepy crawlie inside, the Windows & screened patio built just right to let the trade winds flow through, matching utensils/plate ware, everything was tastefully done. Location: perfect! we didn't even know there were other ways to get to the tidepools but the pocket laminated maps were a great touch. only negative which can't be helped was the one neighbor, they like to wake up at 5am and the woman uses outside voice lol. otherwise evenings were very quiet."

  • 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."

  • An ideal quiet retreat for couples

    "My husband and I enjoyed staying at the Lite House very much. The house itself is small and cute, and well appointed- it had everything we needed to feel comfortable and homey. It is located at the edge of the subdivision and because of the way it is placed on the property it feels like you are in the middle of nowhere. We loved how peaceful and quiet it was. We spent our mornings drinking coffee on the lanai and watching the sky change over the old lava flow with the ocean in the distance. It was also great not hearing any people or cars while we were there- only the sound of chirping birds and the ocean in the distance. In addition to offering a wonderful vacation home, Richard and Diane were flexible and worked with us on our dates. We were originally to stay at the Lite House the same weekend that TS Darby was forecast to bring severe weather to the Big Island. They allowed us to change our stay to later dates that were good for us in order to avoid the storm. We are so glad they did! We had perfect weather and an unforgettable getaway. We will stay at the Lite House again next time we visit Big Island."
