  • Great snorkelling

    "Very nice home, quite comfortable for up to 6 people. Good location 1/2 way between Hilo and Volcano park. Great for snorkelling as short walk to tidal pools. Would be nice if there were snorkel sets at rental until, we had to go to Hilo to purchase our own. Many rental places do include these. Very interesting area with scenic drives. Only suggestion would be to improve locking method. I would come again and stay for a week with family. All accommodation is 2nd and 3 Rd floor as most homes in this area are raised for flood control."

  • Absolutely Incredible!

    "WOW!!! We have been blessed to have the opportunity to travel to many wonderful tropical places, but have never experienced anything like the Kapoho Tide Pools; such a unique phenomenon! AND, to be able to enjoy them everyday – just a few steps from where we stayed - was just incredible! The Coral Pool House is SO special. It is very quiet, comfortable, well-appointed - and then there’s that view – OH MY GOODNESS! From the lanai, from the kitchen, from the living room, and even from the bed, you look out over the lovely tide pools. We usually took part of everyday to do some sightseeing – north to Hilo and the waterfalls, and a couple of days to tour Volcano National Park. But we always began and/or ended our days by snorkeling the Tide Pools. For us, there’s just nothing more peaceful, or enjoyable, than effortlessly gliding through calm, clear water while a multitude of colorful, inquisitive fish dart around and beneath you. We’d read some pretty negative comments about the Kapoho Tide Pools, and the Hilo area in general, so were a little trepidatious about our decision to stay on the east side of the island for a week. As it turned out, it was a FABULOUS decision, and one of the highlights of our 3-week Big Island adventure. The east side of the island is breathtakingly beautiful, I am SO thankful we didn’t miss the opportunity to explore it, AND the Kopoho Tide Pools. Howard and Linda Waldport, Oregon"

  • 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."
