  • 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!"

  • Comfortable and just right!

    "This property was perfectly suited for my friend and I. Not too fancy but very comfortable meeting all of our needs. Plus, Wai'opae tide pool was only a few steps from our door...absolutely stunning! Thank you Jan for making our stay truly an unforgettable one!"

  • A great stay!

    "This house was so spacious and well equipped. It was evident that thought was put into little details that would make the stay that much nicer. The master suite was huge. It was a really easy walk to the tide pools which had beautiful coral and fish. We would love to come back again."

  • Relaxing, Clean, Quiet

    "We stayed at Kapoho Kaiyo while our place was being treated for termites on the other side of the island. It exceeded our expectations. First, it was immaculate! Hawaii, especially the east side can be moist and buggy at times. The house was virtually bug free except for a few critters that are to be expected in the tropics and those were only on the ceiling at night. I have seen more bugs on the mainland. It was bright and cheerful and furnished with taste. The kitchen was well stocked and we had everything we needed. It is a short drive into Pahoa where there are several good restaurants. Don't miss Kaleo's restaurant there. We were within a nice drive of the National Park and got to see the volcano glow right at dusk. Take the time to drive Chain of Crater's Road. It is spectacular even in the rain. Uncle Robert's in Kalapana was a fun adventure on Wednesday night. The warm pond was a 5 minute drive and well worth the experience. Floating there is like no other place. The frogs at night were not a problem for us as we like their voices. The owner was very easy to work with and promptly refunded our deposit. Mars, the local contact, was so helpful and friendly but not at all intrusive. We loved the airiness and open feeling of the house and there is plenty of room. We are looking forward to coming back and staying there. It is such a stark contrast with its lushness and greenery to the also beautiful, west side of the island with its open space and lava fields. You won't go wrong staying here!!"
