  • great get away

    "Being in this awesome tropical get away is a must. So close to the tide pools a short one or two block walk. The champagne ponds were so nice and a short drive to the warm ponds was a treat. We would totally stay there again. Monie and Jim Gentry"

  • Lovely home, in a stunningly beautiful location...

    "Renewed spirit, indeed! This lovely home is comfortable, endearing, and located in a lush, well-kept neighborhood. We loved going for morning and evening walks, hopping around the lava rocks and marveling at the beauty of the tidepools. Sunrise over the tidepools was one of the most glorious sights I've ever seen. I fell in love with the sweet shy geckos that hang out here and there. One morning I thoughtfully pondered them, and googled all about geckos (the Internet is good here) while I drank local coffee from Hilo farmers market. (french press is in the cupboard). Great way to de-stress from the daily grind. :) The location of this home is well situated for exploring the east side of the big island. We also found several amazing farmers markets within 45 minutes from home base. We ate green papaya salad everywhere we went, so delicious! The very best was at the Sunday farmers market in Pahoa. It was made one salad at a time by a wonderful lady. Locals travel for miles just to get her green papaya salad, and as we all stood in a long but fairly quick line, we got to know one another, chatting, while all eyes were watching the harmony and precision of the salad preparations. It was worth the wait, I got 1+ spicy and it was TDF delicious! This was exactly what we needed, a great, beautiful, comfy spot to chill, on the days we felt like lazing about enjoying the immediate beauty, and a great home base for our island excursions. Mahalo, David and Nancy, for sharing and hosting this amazing place! ~ Kelly and Larissa"

  • back again for more Aloha and relaxation

    "We stayed at the Cedar House 5 years ago to celebrate our 25th anniversary, and it was a no-brainer where we wanted to return for our 30th. The house was the perfect blend of relaxation and "things to do". We walked twice daily around the neighborhood and often down to the lagoon or tide pools. Close enough to Pahoa to get Pahoa Fresh Fish for lunch, a little further to Volcano National Park and the sweet little town of Hilo and beyond. The beginning of July meant the yard's mangos were ripe and falling daily, and since no one else was picking them up, nor the passion fruit down the street, we had lots of smoothie additions. Every chair, hammock, sofa and porch chair was super comfortable, the master-room bed was perfect (not too hard, not too soft!), and the large walk-in shower was very nice. We appreciated the pool noodles and snorkel equipment for borrowing. Thank you so much for all the nice touches....again!"

  • 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!"
