  • Hutchinson Family Hawaii vacation 2016

    "The property, house and amenities are simply terrific. The location right beside the tide pools, while a terrific asset, became quite literally a threat during the hurricane... though the kids loved every minute of the excitement! Even before we were forced to evacuate, the owner contacted us along with his property custodian and went above and beyond what one would reasonably expect for a rental unit - generally the expectation is to deal with the corporation. This proved invaluable and helped us immeasurably during the, not one, but two hurricane events. We Hutchinsons are a hardy adventurous lot and just rolled with it and made a wild weather event and flooded out home an unforgettable experience. Thanks to Mike the owner for all his help - before, during and after :) The house is lovely, filled not only with the basics, but many extras. Tide pools are simply fantastic - our two week stay on both Kauai and the Big Island revolved a great deal around snorkeling so this was a bonus. Our other big adventure was cycling down to where the molten lava spilling into the sea just around the corner. Incredible to see Kilauea gurgling just after we arrive home. Cheers and thanks"

  • Asian haven

    "Upon driving up & seeing the welcoming hibiscus flowers placed on outside and inside, then walking into the home welcomed by the Hawaiian music and cute tokonoma area for taking off shoes, we felt the aloha. Comparing this place to other homes we've stayed in, well we have to say... no comparison! We felt SO comfortable & saw not one creepy crawlie inside, the Windows & screened patio built just right to let the trade winds flow through, matching utensils/plate ware, everything was tastefully done. Location: perfect! we didn't even know there were other ways to get to the tidepools but the pocket laminated maps were a great touch. only negative which can't be helped was the one neighbor, they like to wake up at 5am and the woman uses outside voice lol. otherwise evenings were very quiet."

  • 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"

  • The'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!"
