Recent Pahoa reviews

  • Beautiful house & landscaping.

    "Very beautiful seclusive Hawaiian feeling home. Had everything we could possibly need to relax and feel right at home, even for our teenagers! Favorite part was listening to the sounds at night while relaxing! The Thermal ponds & Hilo were very close so that was a plus! Loved how the home was not near the tourist traps!"

  • Never knew I loved ponds so much.

    "I spent 24 days on the Big Island at six amazing properties, this was my favorite. The unit is comfortable and well equipped and pond is so much fun, my favorite ponding was late at night under the stars. The area was beautiful and the food in Pahoa a delight. An upgraded bed would make this a touch better but I can't complain."

  • Great Getaway

    "We really had a nice stay in this vacation rental. It is small but it's all we really needed for the weekend. It's a quaint little place and the location is awesome! The price was also unbeatable. It was super clean. I know we will be back! Thank you!"

  • 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."
