Guestbook comments from the owner

Excerpt from Guest Book:



"Dear Sterling & Trisha,



Our family had a glorious vacation and it started when we arrived at your home. Staying for two weeks gave us the opportunity to really settle in and enjoy your home and this side of the Big Island.



We balanced quality relaxation time with sightseeing. We have travelled all over the world and this is the first time we actually rented a home and "what a home!"



Two quotes sums up our experience. My mother-in-law: "I was just ecstatic and taken aback with my room and time here." Our eight year son, who has been to Disneyland, San Diego, Hawaii on two previous visits, Florida, Jamaica and many other places: "This is the best vacation ever!"



Mahalo.

Fantastic House, Great Neighborhood....who am I kidding....it's Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three (mom and dad mid forties and 10 year old son) had an incredible trip to the Big Island. This house made for a great place to relax in the mornings and after a long day of touring, snorkeling (tide pools in the neighborhood are a quick walk), hiking, bicycling and all the other great activities. If you want to get away from the touristy places (which have their own charm) and feel like you're a million miles away from the norm this house will help set the tone for a vacation in paradise. Plenty of space, lots of kitchen equipment (we cooked a lot of great local food), cozy beds, ceiling fans everywhere, indoor/outdoor living at it's best. A very well thought out vacation rental overall. We fell asleep to the sounds of the night critters and the wind in the palms all around. Massive rainstorms that were quick and powerful made for an even more intense experience. The earth is very alive here and you feel it.

If there weren't so many places to explore in the world we'd go back again and again!

What a great place to stay !

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful. The house is beautiful, set up so nicely. You feel welcome as soon as you walk in the door. Big kitchen with everything you need, the whole house is nicely decorated, even better than the pictures . Beautiful yard with a tidal pool right under and in front of the house. Covered area with big table and bar-b-q, so tropical and relaxing to sit and have a meal or drinks. The bedrooms were tastefully decorated, large and comfortable and clean. The bathrooms, 3 of them, all large, clean, and beautiful. It was very peaceful being in this house. Only a few blocks away from the tidal pools that are so amazing to snorkel in. Definitely stay here, this is truly a unique experience and not one to be missed. Everything in the house was perfect, just as the post promised. We had dinner in nearby Pahoa at Kaleo's Bar and Grill, highly recommend it, excellent food and service. Our over all stay was wonderful and we look forward to staying here again. I would recommend this to my friends, in fact I have. This is a place that a whole group can enjoy as well as a romantic getaway for 2....I can't say enough good things about Lagoon Shangri-La....except you need to stay here !

Private Oasis for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our two families spent Christmas week at Lagoon Shangri-La. Immediately on arriving it felt like vacation! The private outdoor area with covered dining, warm pond, and Jaccuzie made an intimate setting for us to be together as a family. The fully opening sliding doors allowed us to wander and providing everyone with space. Arrival was easy with sensor lights lighting the way which was greatly appreciated since we arrived late after 19 hours of travel. The kitchen was large and well appointed making it easy to cook big meals. The bedrooms were comfortable and each one had a private or semi-private bathroom! Even though we were at full occupancy it never felt crowded. Every time we needed something, the house had it! Umbrellas for rain, lights and candles for a brief power outage, and plenty of beach towels. It all added up to a stress free vacation. Even when there was a problem, the owners were available and helped us fix the issue. We will always remember our week at Lagoon Shangri-La!

Rejuvenating stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at this place and really enjoyed ourselves. The place is quaint, clean, well appointed, and we found it quite charming. The beds are quite comfortable and the kitchen was very complete. It was just a short walk to an awesome snorkeling bay that is very protected and full of tropical fish in the wild. The beautiful pond on property has coy and little shrimp in it that will come tickle your toes while you float peacefully in the water. What a great getaway!

relax and rejuvinate

  • 5 of 5

We live in Kona and had one Monday off, so our friends invited us to stay with them here. It was an easy drive over the new Saddle road, beautiful to see our island. Since we were staying in a fully furnished home, we didn't pack much. When we saw the house, right on its own private natural pool, we thought how impressive it was for the remote area. First order of business was to put on water shoes, swim suits, grab our mask and snorkle. A short walk to kapoho tide pools and quickly we were in the ocean with beautiful fish and unusual coral. It was easy access and calm warm water. Back at the house, beautifully fully furnished and relaxing, we fixed dinner and lingered at the covered outdoor pavilion. We loaded the dishwasher and watched a movie. My husband and I had a bedroom with a private bathroom and 2 sinks. We enjoyed a warm swim in the morning after breakfast in our private tide pool. The location offers more, but we just stayed there until driving back because it's so nice. I suggested that we return to celebrate our 35th anniversary in Nov. or anytime is OK with me.

Great house at Kopoho tide pools area

  • 5 of 5

This was one of my first rentals with VRBO and was very pleased. House is spacious 3 bedroom/3 bath. Kitchen was well appointed which is helpful since you will want to cook rather than drive to town for food. Loved the lagoon setting and the hot tub outside that is quite private. Tide pools are maybe a 5 minute walk and lovely. We liked high tide for snorkelling best. Loved also the outdoor shower for after a run. They have a nice set of things for use such as snorkel gear, boogie board, kid things in the bin outside. The owner even had a nice little welcome basket of goodies for us which was a nice touch.
