  • Excellent Hawaii Getaway

    "We had a wonderful Big Island experience at the White Orchid! Walking up to the house, the first thing we noticed was the scent of flowers blooming- pure Hawaii! The house was very comfortable. The large kitchen was equipped with everything we needed and all the rooms were very spacious. Large windows looked out onto the tide pool and foliage. We slept comfortably on a quality bed. The ceiling fans and open windows provided a comfortable air flow. The internet connection was reliable. The yard was very unique. It was private and lush, surrounded by mature tropical plants. The backyard tide pool was amazing! The water temperature was perfect. The yard had more grassy area than these pictures show. The house next door is a “sister” property and would be great for a group traveling together to use both properties. The backyards are connected by tide pools, but they are big enough that each house is still private. Walking down the street takes you to the ocean shore and Wai‘ōpae Tide Pools- wear water shoes. There was a lot to explore within a short driving distance. Volcano National Park Kilauea Overlook was about 1 hour, 10 min. away with a visitor and walks/hikes. We had dinner at Volcano House and went back to the caldera overlook to see the orange glow of the lava at night. Hilo was a 45 minute drive north and is the biggest city on the island with all the shopping conveniences. There are some interesting historical sites, funky shops, and the famous Rainbow Falls waterfall. Heading south on Hwy 130 to its end takes you to the Kilauea lava viewing area. To see where lava pours into the ocean it is an 8 mile walk, or rent a bike for $20. Take binoculars or a camera with zoom lens. Near where Hwy 130 meets Hwy 137 is Uncle Robert’s Awa Bar and cool crafts/flea market with musicians on Wednesday and Saturday. Right next to Uncle’s is the Hawaiian Star Visitor Sanctuary. You can walk out onto the lava field to the ocean."

  • Paradise... Simple.. Perfect...Clean..

    "We loved our stay! It was amazing! The house was simple and perfect... So at home feeling. Everything we needed and more. The location couldn't be better, and the ponds both nearby and in the yard were a wonderful exploration and fun for us and the kids. Paula was so kind and had everything together. The ladies that were cleaning when we got there were so wonderful and very helpful. The house was clean and the beds were very comfortable! It was paradise! Thank you we had a memorable vacation with the family! ... Our thanks from Michigan"

  • Local Person's Review

    "We were in need of a relaxing weekend away from Hilo town. Looking for a quiet, secluded location to just "chill out"... We found that location here. It was a nice little staycation. After reading over the other reviews, looked like most were from people not from the islands. Possibly not used to conditions in the area... We did not encounter rodents or critters during our stay. Not an ant in sight. The Management Company handled the pest control very well [as per previous reviews]. Though keep in mind, as in nature rodents and critters tend to roam on their own time. You are in Hawaii, not a major concrete city. Weather was finicky on the first day... It was overcast and a little rainy at about 1500 when we arrived. But it got better as the days went by. It's also to be expected in October. Nicely updated washer & dryer and in a better location. (Noticed the photo of the apartment style w&d in the restroom area.) The management company was easy and wonderful to work with. Scheduled, picked up keys and did everything specifically with Ronelle. Thank you! All in all, will definitely choose this location as a vacation rental, if we're looking to stay in Kapoho again : )"

  • Wonderful stay

    "My husband, 3 year old daughter and I had a fantastic 4 night stay at this beautiful house. We loved the decor, beautiful kitchen, eating our meals on the lanai and taking advantage of of snorkeling in the beautiful ocean pools. We ended every day with a soak in the warm pool only a short drive away. We are so glad we chose this home and we hope to be back in the near future. Mahalo!"
