“Great stay at the Tide Pools on the fabulous Big Island”
Reviewed 19 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Really enjoyed our stay (second time) on the fabulous Big Island, this time with friends and at Kapoho, south east of Hilo (previously we stayed on the west side at Kona). Two storied house was large and spacious with two bedrooms and adequate space for sleeping more, especially for two couples with one or two children. Well appointed, clean and next to the awesome Tide Pools, as well as the amazing coastline down to the Kalapana lava flows coming off Kilauea. Also very close to the Isaac Hale Park, which is the boat launching point for one of life's great experiences when the lava is flowing into the sea. Another nearby must is the thermal pool at Ahalanui County Beach Park. And don't forget Wednesday night's markets at Uncle Robs down at Kalapana or the afternoon walk/bike ride into the national park for lava viewing!

Liked best: Facilities, location and friendly locals
Liked least: WiFi and hot water were a little patchy at times but were still OK. Some people may not like lack of AC but we really enjoyed being in the real tropical air with more than adequate fans to cool us!

“Awesome getaway!!”
Reviewed 24 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I just want to send a great big ALOHA and MAHALO to Deb and Mars for the wonderful accommodations! As a group of 8, the home was perfect for us. Lots of room and and everything we needed. The neighborhood is so nice a peaceful, and the neighbors are soooo nice. Sue across the street gave us some beautiful bok choy, straight out of her garden, picked in front of us! The house was so clean and modern. We loved it! We had a great time exploring all the ponds. The warm water pond was so warm. It was amazing and so relaxing. We only got to stay 2 nights, so this summer we will be back for a longer stay. I recommend this for everyone!

“Wonderful Stay!”
Reviewed 7 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We live on Oahu and took a neighbor island getaway for the weekend. The house was excellent, clean, and well furnished, as described. The location was also excellent, as it allowed us to visit multiple tide pools for some snorkeling. Cat (manager) was professional, kind and accommodating. This location was a peaceful contrast to the busy city. Lovely!

We stayed four nights and enjoyed every minute. The house was as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. Everything you need was there. Appreciated the flower arrangements. (cable/satellite was not working) Nice to have the snorkeling gear to use and big beach towels. Enjoyed walking around the neighbourhood, friendly people. Snorkeling amazing. Would definitely stay again and recommend it to anyone.

Management Response

Occasionally the satellite TV has to be reset after there has been some interruption. This is usually an immediate fix. One just needs to contact the manager for assistance.
