  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • Great house in a great location

    "Iki Honu is a wonderful little house that feels bigger than it looks thanks to a very thoughtful layout and fully screened lanai. It is clean, well appointed, and well cared for in an excellent location just steps from the tidepools. We used the bikes provided to go see the active lava flow!"

  • Bayfront Get Away

    "We were looking for a quiet get away place and this fit the bill perfectly. The view out of the front room is spectacular, almost 180 degrees of Kapoho Bay. We slipped right into the bay to swim and snorkel, and loved seeing turtles off the see wall regularly. A short drive to the Kapoho tide pools opens up an underwater wonderland, well worth the short drive and walk in. Audrey's presence was nice, with input as needed for local happenings. There are several good places to eat in Pahoa, a 10 - 15 minute drive away - Kaleo was our favorite, fresh fish served in so many tasty ways. Plan ahead for grocery shopping, the nearest store is about 15 minutes away. This is definitely the quiet side of Hawaii, if you want a resort atmosphere, this is not the place to go. If you want a peaceful and beautiful touch of paradise, this is the place. The home and furnishings are older, but comfortable."
