  • Very nice Large Home

    "This is a very nice property located close to the tide pools, very easy walking distance. The property was very clean and well maintained, had comfortable beds and everything we needed for our stay. Close to volcanoes national park which was the main reason for our visit. There were bicycles on property which were used to cruise around the neighborhood. There was even snorkeling equipment available which we used to explore the tide pools. Truly enjoyed our stay there and would recommend to anyone."

  • 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."

  • Relaxing, Clean, Quiet

    "We stayed at Kapoho Kaiyo while our place was being treated for termites on the other side of the island. It exceeded our expectations. First, it was immaculate! Hawaii, especially the east side can be moist and buggy at times. The house was virtually bug free except for a few critters that are to be expected in the tropics and those were only on the ceiling at night. I have seen more bugs on the mainland. It was bright and cheerful and furnished with taste. The kitchen was well stocked and we had everything we needed. It is a short drive into Pahoa where there are several good restaurants. Don't miss Kaleo's restaurant there. We were within a nice drive of the National Park and got to see the volcano glow right at dusk. Take the time to drive Chain of Crater's Road. It is spectacular even in the rain. Uncle Robert's in Kalapana was a fun adventure on Wednesday night. The warm pond was a 5 minute drive and well worth the experience. Floating there is like no other place. The frogs at night were not a problem for us as we like their voices. The owner was very easy to work with and promptly refunded our deposit. Mars, the local contact, was so helpful and friendly but not at all intrusive. We loved the airiness and open feeling of the house and there is plenty of room. We are looking forward to coming back and staying there. It is such a stark contrast with its lushness and greenery to the also beautiful, west side of the island with its open space and lava fields. You won't go wrong staying here!!"

  • If you want to get away from it all...

    "This property is in a gated community on the east side of the Big Island. If you want to be among all the touristy attractions, this isn't for you, but if you are willing to drive an hour here, forty minutes there, etc., this is a great rental. The house was in wonderful shape. I judge the quality of a VRBO by the condition of the mattress and linens. If I can't sleep on something that's lumpy and should have been tossed years ago, or if the sheets have stains, I am not happy. I was very happy here. We slept like babies because of the comfy mattress, quality sheets, and, ABOVE ALL, the ocean breezes. The ocean was particularly choppy during the week of our stay, and we didn't get to kayak like we had hoped, but there were plenty of other things to do and views that justified doing nothing. Overall, this was a great place for the price."
