  • 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."

  • Great modern house perfect for our stay!

    "This house was great, and perfect for our short stay on the "other side" of the island while staying primarily in Waikoloa. There's a cute little swimming pond right off the driveway that my girls swam around in and practiced snorkeling. The champagne pond is very close (walking), as are the kapoho ponds (driving). We also went down to Kalapana twice in one day to view the lava, so that's close enough too (under one hour). The house was very clean, updated, and in a nice quiet neighborhood. Only drawback is there's no dishwasher in the modern kitchen. The rental agent, Jeana, was awesome. She was available whenever I needed her and helped with everything I asked. Highly recommended and we'd stay again. The downstairs unit is a good option too it we come with more family."

  • The pond....it's all about the pond

    "Ahhh, the pond...I could go on about the lovely downstairs unit and it's open kitchen and dining area. Or I could discuss how convenient the location is for just about anywhere on this side of the island, but somehow my mind wanders back to the thermal pond that is all yours. When the tide pools or champagne pond is crowded there is your own private pond awaiting. Yes, it's close to the volcano, lava flows and the vibe of Pahoa; the Makuu Farmers Market, open mic nite at the local Kava/Kombucha Bar or the drive down the Red Road and then there is the pond where you can slide in and float in bliss, undisturbed at sunrise, sunset or under the full moon just steps from the door of the house. There is Hilo Town, and botanical gardens, waterfalls, lava viewing boat tours from Issac Hale Park and there is the pond that rises and falls with the tide and is always calling..... Needless to say we enjoyed our stay and I if I could figure out how to add an additional half star I would. The withholding of the other half star is the bed in the second room is in need of a serious replacement or at the very least a foam topper and pillow top cover. But after that moonlight soak in the pond, sleeping without those additions wasn't a problem! The location is excellent, clean and recently re-modeled, communication was clear and responses prompt from the owners, Have already recommended it to friends who frequent the area. Don't miss the Thai restaurant in Pahoa!"

  • Very Unique Spot!

    "My husband and I spent 3 nights at this cottage after spending time on the Kohala Coast. It was definitely a reprieve from the large resorts, and we haven't been so relaxed in a long time! The area is different from anything we have seen, with the warm thermal pools, lava beaches and lush greenery. The pool is amazing, spotlessly clean and very safe. We actually enjoyed the pool more than snorkeling in the famous champagne pools across the street. Easy access to the Volcano National Park, where we spent one day. The house is very clean, and includes all of the necessities for cooking (which we did all but one night, where we went into Pahoa for Thai food). Our favourite was sitting on the huge lanai with our coffee and books. Although TV is provided, we watched very little as the lanai was so much more appealing. Ilse was a great host, her communication was prompt and she greeted us upon our arrival. Instructions for check in were thorough and she also included information on the area, shopping, etc... We would recommend if you are looking for a quiet retreat in a very unique spot!"
