Perfect for Our Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five (two parents, three young adult children) had a wonderful stay at the Pond House. It was well supplied with what we needed and the addition of the guest house meant we could get away from each other when necessary. The nearby town of Pahoa has some good restaurants and also a market (we cooked a lot of our own meals) and other services.The Kapoho Tide Pools are only steps away from the house, so you can have an adventure without driving anywhere. The setting of the house is incredibly beautiful and peaceful. The owners obviously take pride in the property and they were also extremely kind to us when we needed some extra help.

Owner's Response: It is always our desire to try and help our guests have a relaxing, enjoyable and memorable stay at our 'Pond House" and learn a little more about Hawaii while they are here. We enjoy talking story about Hawaii and what Hawaii has to offer in it's natural beauty and local culture. Whether it be swimming with the tropical fish in the tide pools a few steps away, a guided trip to our nearby orchid and palm nursery, experiencing Volcano National Park activity or just laying back, on the daybed on the screened lanai feeling the tropical breeze, guests have gone home with a smile. We live five minutes away, therefore close enough to be helpful if needed and yet far enough away to give our guests the privacy they want in a cottage by the ocean. Each guest is special to us and it is our pleasure to be able to share our aloha with them. Mahalo (thank you) for thinking of us.

The Pond House has been our snowbird escape from the NW for 15 years. For most of those years, it has just been the (fifty-something) two of us, but we have comfortably shared it with family and friends. As we find the website's descriptions and photos to be accurate, I will try to lend familiarity to this recommendation rather than repeat a list of amenities. The neighborhood is a fun mix of locals, mainland transplants and vacation rental tourists. We always feel welcome. There is never a shortage of somebody to "talk story". Jan (owner) has done "master" garden work in creating a jungle oasis to insure privacy. The kitchen is well-equipped, truly functional and big enough to party in. The master bedroom is romantic. You will find sofas and settees perfect for reading or napping (at my age, the former leads to the latter). The screened lanai can only be fully appreciated in the heat of a tropical afternoon. It is also our preferred dining room. And, as if to celebrate our time here, an orchid blooms in every room.

Each morning, you will awake to the gentle coo of doves. A usual beginning to our day is a short rental car trip to the Ahalanui Park to float lazily in the brackish warm waters and watch the sun rise over the Pacific. We breakfast at the cottage on Kona coffee, banana breads and fresh fruit. Pahoa, a short drive away, has groceries, a health food store and a weekend Farmers' Market. Add the local fruit stands and fresh fruits and veggies are plentiful. The rest of the day will find us snorkeling in Wai`opae Tide Pools; beautiful, reef protected coral gardens are but a few steps from the cottage (be sure to visit the websites for the Kapoho Tide Pools). In coming back from our swims, the outside "shower" room is perfect for removing the salt and cleaning up for dinner. Usually, dinner is something barbecued (fresh Ahi, hmmm) and something green (great area for avocadoes and organic lettuces). Our evenings can be diverse: night swims, walks about the neighborhood, sometimes a drive to Pahoa for a beer. Always, there is time to read! We fall asleep to the rustle of palm fronds as the trade winds blow nearly every night. If we are lucky, a cane toad will wish us "goodnight".

And, one thing more, you will love Jan!

Peaceful Hawaii Heaven

  • 5 of 5
This was such a peaceful, relaxing place to stay. I felt like
we had stepped back in time. Very private with beautiful landscaping...loved the orchids. We loved lounging on the screened lanai at night and listening to the frogs. I enjoyed the house geckos, which always seemed interested in what I was doing, and kept the place bug free. This may be a problem for people who don't like to share a place with critters.

It is only a very short walk down a beautiful path to a huge Wai'opae pond. The snorkeling is excellent. In the morning I had this pond all to myself. It doesn't get any better than this. We had a hard time leaving here to explore other places.

The closest town, Pahoa, had several good restaurants, a market and drug store. We enjoyed sight seeing along highway 137 south. Ahalanui Warm Spring is a great place to swim (thermally heated). At roads end is a nice hike through the lava to a new black sand beach. You can also see steam rising in the distance from where the current eruption is hitting the ocean.

The owner, Jan, was very nice and gave us a tour of her wonderful orchid farm. We would love to stay here again.

Heaven Hawaiian Style

  • 4 of 5
This is where I want to be. We love the pond house. (We've stayed here 5 times!) A very peaceful home surrounded by orchids and palms and only a few steps to the lagoon. The pictures are accurate but it's better in person. Comfortable furnishings and Hawaiian style decor with all you need. Lots of books on the area and Hawaiian music to listen to. Great snorkeling a few steps away. We love eating at the Kalapana Cafe at the end of the road and all the farmers markets and the volcano. Jan is a great hostess and does a wonderful job creating a very special place. Yes, I would recommend this property to a friend or relative.

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5
Everything is great! Clean rooms, snorkeling gears, walking distance to tide pools. The owners are very helpful when you need something likes BBQ charcoals, etc. They also suggested us to visit their local farmer market. We found poke bowl there, love it and you should try it! Jan gave us beautiful orchids as a special wedding gift, we love it and thank you!!!! We recommend this place to everyone who visit the Hilo side!!!

welcome home

  • 5 of 5
if you want a place to stay that is reminescent of "old hawaii' then this is the place. immediately the cottage said to us "welcome home". the cottage was clean, comfortable and with all the modern amenities, yet felt like the old plantation home that my grandparents lived in kahuku, hawaii. jan was a welcoming hostess who truly radiated the kama aina spirit. my husband, jan and i talked story through the evening sharing stories of working the land. wonderful place for multiple families with children of various ages as the ponds are calm and inviting. trying to convince my sisters and their families to have a mini family reunion here. my family and i will definitely be returning.
