  • Romantic getaway

    "The Bali Temple felt like and was a luxurious getaway. Beautiful view of the ocean across the lava fields from the palatial four poster bed, nice bathroom with fluffy towels and jacuzzi, comfortable sitting and dining areas, and well equipped kitchen. Thoughtfully decorated and stocked without feeling awkwardly lived in, it was a wonderful spot for our last 3 days on The Big Island, from which we explored Puna, Volcano, & Hilo. Hilo Bay Cafe was delicious but make sure to get an outdoor table. Loved the Ahalanui thermal pool in the evening, snorkeling at Kapoho tide pools, and walking to Uncle Robert's Market. Be here for that on Wednesday night! It was a highlight of our trip. Had hoped to see the flowing lava nearby too but it was not a 30-45 min walk from the parking area as the guards told us, but more like a couple hrs. After about 4 miles w/o appropriate sun cover or hydration, we turned back. After nightfall would be better than early morning but expect a significant hike in the dark. We loved the Bali Temple and would love to return someday to do things we didn't get to do in the area like the lava tree park, Champagne pond, hit the galleries and shops in Hilo, the botanic gardens and waterfalls north of Hilo, the black sand beach nearby, and return to Uncle Robert's."

  • Little piece of heaven

    "Bright and clean and a little touch of home. Laura went out of her way to accommodate an additional day at the start of the stay. I truly appreciate all she did to get the place ready. This well appointed , comfortable bed and clean studio is a place we could live and love. Great location for the hot ponds and going to town. I would definitely come back when visiting the island again!!!"

  • Paradise on the rocks

    "There is nothing about this property that is less than fantastic. Like others have indicated, the pictures are not doing justice to the actual property. The central space is wide open and modern with just a hint of beach decor. Nothing is overbearing, it's very calm with a muted color scheme. The kitchen is modern. The bedrooms are comfortable. Lighting throughout is ample and bulbs all light (yes, that's a notable) Here are some spectacular points: The swimming pool. Large and I'd guess about 6" deep. Lovely for lounging and getting misted by the crashing waves on the lava cliffs, just beyond the fence. Pool lights are perfect. The hot tub. Not too large, but perfect for four. The car port. No hot vehicle - hooray. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely home on a quiet road with the Pacific Ocean playing in stereo."

  • 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!"
