  • Quiet and relaxed with beautiful view of both lava and ocean

    "We found the perfect spot to spend a week on the Big Island of Hawaii. We walked to the ocean over the lava and in general learned what it is like to live with a volcano. We traveled to local beaches, parks, and the friendly community of Pahoa. We also took short trips to the Volcano NP, Mauna Kea with all it's clear skies and religious history, and the shore north of Hilo with botanical gardens and waterfalls. We cooked ourselves in the complete kitchen, with condiments and other dry goods, or enjoyed the restaurants of Pahoa. Great sleeping with the comfortable bed and the ocean breezes. Rachaelle is a gracious host and handled any issues, mostly before we noticed them. There is still some updating to be done , but it did not affect our 50th anniversary celebration."

  • 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!"

  • 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!"

  • 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!"
