  • Lovely cottage near Kalapana

    "My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Hale Haumea cottage. Diane, the owner, was very helpful & timely in answering our questions during the booking process & called us the first morning after our arrival at the cottage to make sure all of our needs were met. The cottage was nicely furnished. All floors are tiled, including the bedroom, and I experienced no problems with my allergies or asthma while staying at the cottage. The bed linens and pillows smelled amazingly fresh with no mustiness. The bed was extremely comfortable & mattress in excellent condition. There is an air conditioner for the bedroom, which we used each night as I have a low tolerance for humidity. The A/C worked well and cooled the bedroom down after about 2 hours. The bathroom has a tiled tub/shower surround & linen closet, furnished with an adequate supply of hand, bath, and beach towels. There were only 4 small wash cloths, however, so I might suggest that Diane purchase a few more of these (or if you have a longer stay at the cottage to pack your own). The kitchen is nicely furnished with all appliances (refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, dishwasher) and has a beautiful set of stoneware dishes (tropical design). The only items missing were a pizza pan and dish cloths. (We popped a frozen pizza in the oven one night and had to use a round iron griddle to pull it out of the oven.) There is a sponge for washing dishes and wiping counters, but Diane might consider adding a couple of dish cloths. We had no problem with ants during our stay and kept all of our food in the refrigerator, including any open cereal or snacks. We did have visits from several friendly lizards (geckos), but they were very timid & kept there distance from us. On our last night of our visit, we did have about 20 small flying beetles congregate on the ceiling near the lights. Not sure how they found their way into the cottage as we did not have them the five previous nights. We found the vacuum in the closet in the kitchen & the beetles were quickly sucked up with no additional ones found the next morning. We ate at Kaleo's Bar and Grill in Pahoa and had an excellent meal with excellent service. Huge pancakes at the Hawaiian Style Cafe in Hilo (two 10" pancakes - ask for a 1/2 order). Enjoyed Volcanoes Nat. Park, Waipio Valley Lookout, Lava Tree State Park, Mauna Kea Summit, Rainbow Falls, Coconut Island, and the Liliokalani Gardens in Hilo. 45 min. drive from Hilo to cottage."

  • 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!"

  • Wonderful, peaceful. Perfect family getaway

    "This home has everything you need for a great stay in Kapoho. It is remote, quiet and in the best location of the Big Island. The evening breezes keep the house relatively cool. The sound of the frogs at night is delightful and better than traffic noises. The private pond is huge and has everything to see. Go night swimming and view the milky way! We dont want to leave and plan to return again as soon as we are able. The house feels like home. Sophia was very available to fix a few things and is an excellent property manager. Mahalo."

  • Great snorkelling

    "Very nice home, quite comfortable for up to 6 people. Good location 1/2 way between Hilo and Volcano park. Great for snorkelling as short walk to tidal pools. Would be nice if there were snorkel sets at rental until, we had to go to Hilo to purchase our own. Many rental places do include these. Very interesting area with scenic drives. Only suggestion would be to improve locking method. I would come again and stay for a week with family. All accommodation is 2nd and 3 Rd floor as most homes in this area are raised for flood control."
