  • Fun place for a family vacation

    "Great property in a secluded community. On site property manager (Shawn) was great, very helpful and accommodating. Our kids loved the snorkelling lagoon! Sleeping arrangements worked out well for our family of 4. Our kids really enjoyed the island bedroom, but it might be a little tight if you tried to double up (2 of 4 bedrooms only had double beds). I had to deduct at least one star as I had prearranged for an early check-in which was later withdrawn when the owner booked a party through the day of our arrival. Disappointment turned to aggravation when, due to the clean-up necessitated by the excessively large (11 people) group booked before us and the late (almost 2 hours) arrival of the cleaning lady, our we couldn't check in until 6pm. Once we got past the check-in headaches we had a great time. Highly recommended is Kehena Beach, a picturesque crescent of black sand 30 minutes south. We were lucky enough to see and swim with a pod of spinner dolphins for at least 30 minutes. On Shawn's recommendation, we booked dinner at Volcano House at dusk and had a great view of the lava in the Halemaumau Crater from our table."

  • 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."

  • 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!"
