  • Wonderful host

    "One of our friends auctioned 3 nights stay at this house at Rotary Fundraising over a year ago. Paula was very accommodating and patient with our request and communicating with her. We truly appreciate that. 1. It is easy to find. 2. Nice secluded house with great lanai to sit and enjoy coffee in the morning. 3. Close enough to town of Pahoa and even Hilo. 4. Wi Fi was great to have since we did not have coverage at that area. Just keep in mind: 1. There are stairs from parking area to house so if you have a lot or heavy luggage or bad knees, it may be an issue. And lights were not working so good idea to have flash light. (Or use phone) 2. Screen does not close tight. 3. Both bathrooms have louver door so not completely private. Main bathroom wall is partial so you can hear pretty much everything if you are in kitchen or living room. 4. No AC. Bedrooms has ceiling fan so it helps but only one floor fan in living room area and it can feel bit stuffy if you are used to AC. We walked to Champagne Pond in the morning but did not use it since we were busy going to lava boat, visiting couple of friends near by, driving to Kona and kept busy whole time. We ate at Black Rock Cafe and Kaleo's Grill in Pahoa and they are both recommended by Paula's housekeeper and pretty good. Coffee at Sirus was very good also. She had granola ball and it was really good. We loved Green Papaya salad sold at truck at Pahoa Sunday Farmer;s market. Highly recommended. During the summer, there is Bon Dance (Japanese Summer Festival) on Sat at Pahoa YBA Kaikan. They had some Japanese snack foods for sale. Some wore traditional Japanese summer kimono. It was fun dancing with kids to senior. Something different to try."

  • Perfect!

    "We loved calling this home! It was my husband and I and our best friends and the four of us never felt crowded. The place was big, clean and comfortable. The tide pools were literally across the street and offers fantastic snorkeling. We were so close to all the volcano action too which was right where we wanted to be! We will be back someday!"

  • Magical Shangri'la!

    "This place lives up to it's name. Everyone from the grandkids to us old folk loved the lagoon and its fish. The Round Room was perfect for celebrating our anniversary. And it's an excellent base for all east side activities including lava watching."

  • best staycation ever!!

    "We live on the big island and have always enjoyed coming to this cottage and hot pond. Nothing beats having your own special swimming spot. Very relaxing for all ages. Location is close to home but far away enough to feel like we are actually on a vacation. We'll be back :)"
