  • 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!!"

  • Very Unique Spot!

    "My husband and I spent 3 nights at this cottage after spending time on the Kohala Coast. It was definitely a reprieve from the large resorts, and we haven't been so relaxed in a long time! The area is different from anything we have seen, with the warm thermal pools, lava beaches and lush greenery. The pool is amazing, spotlessly clean and very safe. We actually enjoyed the pool more than snorkeling in the famous champagne pools across the street. Easy access to the Volcano National Park, where we spent one day. The house is very clean, and includes all of the necessities for cooking (which we did all but one night, where we went into Pahoa for Thai food). Our favourite was sitting on the huge lanai with our coffee and books. Although TV is provided, we watched very little as the lanai was so much more appealing. Ilse was a great host, her communication was prompt and she greeted us upon our arrival. Instructions for check in were thorough and she also included information on the area, shopping, etc... We would recommend if you are looking for a quiet retreat in a very unique spot!"

  • Lovely home, great location.

    "Very private house in Kehena, just a couple of miles from Kalapana, 8 miles from Kapoho tide pools and about 10 miles from Pahoa. Easy to get to lava viewing as well. Spectacular ocean views and nice breezes. Huge family room. The kitchen was exceptionally well-equipped, even with condiments and coffee and cereal. Loved the guitar and bongos. Unfortunately, there was a problem with the stereo and despite the efforts of neighbor Robert, who helps out a lot, we were unable to get it working. Oh, well, had to listen to the waves breaking below - such first-world problems!! Some things I've had at other HI rentals which would have been nice: ice chest, beach chairs and beach umbrellas but no big deal. I really can't complain, we loved the house and had a great time. I would definitely recommend this house to friends and would stay there again."

  • An ideal quiet retreat for couples

    "My husband and I enjoyed staying at the Lite House very much. The house itself is small and cute, and well appointed- it had everything we needed to feel comfortable and homey. It is located at the edge of the subdivision and because of the way it is placed on the property it feels like you are in the middle of nowhere. We loved how peaceful and quiet it was. We spent our mornings drinking coffee on the lanai and watching the sky change over the old lava flow with the ocean in the distance. It was also great not hearing any people or cars while we were there- only the sound of chirping birds and the ocean in the distance. In addition to offering a wonderful vacation home, Richard and Diane were flexible and worked with us on our dates. We were originally to stay at the Lite House the same weekend that TS Darby was forecast to bring severe weather to the Big Island. They allowed us to change our stay to later dates that were good for us in order to avoid the storm. We are so glad they did! We had perfect weather and an unforgettable getaway. We will stay at the Lite House again next time we visit Big Island."
