We loved the lani, especially at sunset. I wish we could take the warm breezes and beautiful scenery home with us! Being able to walk to the water for snorkeling was fantastic.
I loved hearing the frogs @ night... so peaceful! Perfect home for two families to share! As Jeff Probst would say, "Survivors ready? GO!"
We have stayed in just about all Sophia's properties and have had no complaints. The houses are beautiful and well stocked. All you need is groceries and you're all set. Sophia will address any issues you have and get them resolved quickly . The area is quiet so don't expect a lot to see but if you're looking for piece and quiet you have it. Rental car a must. Getting across the island is easy and Kona has all the tourism you need.
This home is every bit as immaculate and spacious as it appears in the photos! My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks in July 2011 with our 3 children (all in their 20's). Each one had his own bedroom. The downstairs separate "apartment" was perfect for our 2 sons with it's own LR, BR,TV, mini -fridge, and shaded patio. Note: the downstairs apt. is not accessible from within the main house. You must take the outside stairs to get to it. The kitchen has most everything one needs for food prep and has an assortment of condiments and varying items left by previous guests. BBQ on kitchen deck is a nice cooking option.You should do your main shopping in Hilo but don't buy every last thing until you evaluate what you will need for the home. Don't miss the Sunday farmers" market in Hilo. There is an assortment of 5 or 6 snorkel,mask, fin sets in the garage in various states of disrepair (you can assemble at least 2 full sets out of all the parts) as well as noodles and a boogie board for swimming. There is an ironing board & iron but no hair dryer. You won't ever need to do your hair because between swimming in the ocean, and the humidity, no hair-do will last anyway! There are 3 portable phones in the house, (equipped with intercom for communicating with your family 2 stories below) and all of the big island is considered local calling with no LD fees. Our Verizon phones were useless in this house so I actually had to pull out my ancient MCI calling card for out -of -state phone calls! AT&T had good phone reception however. The Wi-fi reception is variable & somewhat inconsistant. I could not get my I-pad II 3 G (which I purchased just for this trip) to connect to internet at all for 2 weeks. You may have no access problems depending on your equipment. Regular PCs seem to hook up ok. Champagne pond is very close. Go there more than once if you don't see much sea life the first time. I snorkeled 2 feet from a huge green sea turtle as he idled near the rocks in the rear-most part of the Champagne pond. Don't miss the publec "warm pond" just a short way down the Red Road just past the elementary school. You will not be disappointed in this wonderful home and location!
P.S. Do NOT miss eating out at Cafe Pesto in Hilo. Make sure you have a reservation if a big group because it is always crowded!
You can swim snorkel with Sea Turtles in the Famous Geothermally heated Champagne Pond, Tide Pools about 200' walking distance from the home. Diving, Spear-Fishing, Kayaking & Surfing all in this Kapoho Bay.
