  • 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."

  • Wonderful host

    "One of our friends auctioned 3 nights stay at this house at Rotary Fundraising over a year ago. Paula was very accommodating and patient with our request and communicating with her. We truly appreciate that. 1. It is easy to find. 2. Nice secluded house with great lanai to sit and enjoy coffee in the morning. 3. Close enough to town of Pahoa and even Hilo. 4. Wi Fi was great to have since we did not have coverage at that area. Just keep in mind: 1. There are stairs from parking area to house so if you have a lot or heavy luggage or bad knees, it may be an issue. And lights were not working so good idea to have flash light. (Or use phone) 2. Screen does not close tight. 3. Both bathrooms have louver door so not completely private. Main bathroom wall is partial so you can hear pretty much everything if you are in kitchen or living room. 4. No AC. Bedrooms has ceiling fan so it helps but only one floor fan in living room area and it can feel bit stuffy if you are used to AC. We walked to Champagne Pond in the morning but did not use it since we were busy going to lava boat, visiting couple of friends near by, driving to Kona and kept busy whole time. We ate at Black Rock Cafe and Kaleo's Grill in Pahoa and they are both recommended by Paula's housekeeper and pretty good. Coffee at Sirus was very good also. She had granola ball and it was really good. We loved Green Papaya salad sold at truck at Pahoa Sunday Farmer;s market. Highly recommended. During the summer, there is Bon Dance (Japanese Summer Festival) on Sat at Pahoa YBA Kaikan. They had some Japanese snack foods for sale. Some wore traditional Japanese summer kimono. It was fun dancing with kids to senior. Something different to try."

  • Lovely home, in a stunningly beautiful location...

    "Renewed spirit, indeed! This lovely home is comfortable, endearing, and located in a lush, well-kept neighborhood. We loved going for morning and evening walks, hopping around the lava rocks and marveling at the beauty of the tidepools. Sunrise over the tidepools was one of the most glorious sights I've ever seen. I fell in love with the sweet shy geckos that hang out here and there. One morning I thoughtfully pondered them, and googled all about geckos (the Internet is good here) while I drank local coffee from Hilo farmers market. (french press is in the cupboard). Great way to de-stress from the daily grind. :) The location of this home is well situated for exploring the east side of the big island. We also found several amazing farmers markets within 45 minutes from home base. We ate green papaya salad everywhere we went, so delicious! The very best was at the Sunday farmers market in Pahoa. It was made one salad at a time by a wonderful lady. Locals travel for miles just to get her green papaya salad, and as we all stood in a long but fairly quick line, we got to know one another, chatting, while all eyes were watching the harmony and precision of the salad preparations. It was worth the wait, I got 1+ spicy and it was TDF delicious! This was exactly what we needed, a great, beautiful, comfy spot to chill, on the days we felt like lazing about enjoying the immediate beauty, and a great home base for our island excursions. Mahalo, David and Nancy, for sharing and hosting this amazing place! ~ Kelly and Larissa"

  • 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!"
