  • Couldn't be more perfect

    "Just returned last week from our stay at the cottage with my Husband and teenage Son. This place is AWESOME, words and pictures cannot describe. I admit being a bit apprehensive about being off the grid, but once you are there it just doesn't matter. Rolling out of bed and watching incredible sunrises over the ocean was the best. It is an easy drive to the National Park, Hilo an everything you would want to explore in the area. We were lucky enough to be there at a time when lava was flowing and could be seen from short drive to the end of the road. Like the other reviews, just wish we were there longer. Thanks for the great stay!"

  • 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!"

  • Mini Shangrila

    "Upon arrival the oversized fresh warm water pond beckons to you... We jumped in after unpacking the cooler and knew we were in heaven. We brought snorkel and mask- a must- so you can see the colors of the bottom of the pond and the mini crabs and fish. Mostly sunny, we were fortunate to see the biggest full moon since 1948 rise above the pond. That meant a night swim as well. The outdoor shower with hot and cold water was a welcome change for us. The home is comfortably practical with one of everything you may need. Appreciated past guests leaving mustard and condiments for our use. We lived on the covered lanai overlooking the pond- I think the lanai is bigger than the house. A charcoal grill was fun to use, and the pond toys and floaties an added bonus. Great location for walks and jogging. Wish I had a bicycle to ride. I have been here less than a month ago with girlfriends and had to bring my husband back for a get away. Next bringing family and kids in January. Thanks Ilse."
