  • 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."

  • Good Times at Kapoho Ocean View Home

    "We were glad to find a house to accommodate our large family. The process of renting was pretty easy. Sophia was attentive and ready to react if we had any issues (which we didn't). We cooked at home most of our stay, and did a few loads of laundry - everything we needed as far as amenities and supplies was available in the house. The Champagne pond and Kapoho tide pooling were the best! We had two little ones, so the safety and convenience were very welcome. The location was such that you had to drive about 30 mins minimum to get to additional attractions, including grocery stores, but we weren't usually in any big hurry to get anywhere. Overall, we had a very enjoyable and successful stay. Thanks, Sophia!"

  • Relaxing vacation

    "I rented this home for 10 days for myself and my children (ages 13-29). My grandson was also there. He just turned 1. And my older brother. This was his first vacation and a beautiful one for him. We loved the flexibility everyone had to either relax inside, fish, snorkel, sun bathe or walk around to nearby areas. We did have to cross to the west side of the island for entertainment. It was a 2 hour drive to go to Kona for the luau and to snorkel at Capatain Cook's cove. Our hostess was on top of things. We stayed off our electronics almost the entire time--which speaks strongly of how satisfied everyone was. I have never felt so relaxed. Thank you!! Our only disappointment was the fact that there were no sandy beaches. Lava rock everywhere. The Rainbow waterfall and tropical botanical gardens were beautiful and close by."

  • 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."
