Comfortable House, Awesome Warm Pond, Great Location

  • 5 of 5
When visiting the Big Island, we had previously stayed with friends who live nearby in the Kapoho Beach Community, but their downstairs unit is now occupied, so we ended up at Rabbit and Dragon. The house is comfortable, well-equipped and surprisingly spacious, but the real draw for us, especially our kids, was the warm pond. It is large, private, beautiful and so enjoyable that our friends ended up spending more time at Rabbit and Dragon than their own house during our visit.

The owners were responsive and friendly, and had clearly been attentive to previous guests' requests for minor changes. No significant complaints from us, though we did find the mattress in the master bedroom a bit soft for our tastes.

We would come back to this beautiful, remote area and this house even if our friends didn't live here. The warm water of the champagne pond and the Ahalanui pond, as well as the incredible snorkeling at Waiopae, are the big draws for us in the immediate area.

Thanks to Ron, Mark and Jeana for a great stay. Can't wait to come back.

Private Thermal Pond

  • 5 of 5
We stayed there for a month and loved it!! This was our second time. The best thing there is the thermal pond. We have looked around the neighborhood and think this one is the best! It is about the length of a regular swimming pool, surrounded by 2 fences, a wall and lots of vegetation, like coconut trees--TOTALLY private (skinny dipper's delight). Water temperature is just right too. Leaves drop in the pool during the day, but the next morning, they are all gone. How this happens is a mystery. The water level goes up and down with the tides. Snorkeling (they furnish equipment) at Champagne Pond is a block away. Fantastic snorkeling is only several miles away at the Tide Pools. You have to climb over some lava, but it is well worth it. Beautiful coral reef and lots of gorgeous fish. The house and furnishings are unpretentious. The house is very homey though. Beds are comfortable. A good beach house.

Book it, Dano!

A great place. Lagoon is totally private, with warm clear water and fish. Master bedroom and bath is separate from the rest of the house. Lots of room for cooking, lounging, eating, partying. Clean and ready to move in to. Champagne Pond is a block away. We loved it.

Amazing Hawaiian retreat is a real-treat,

  • 5 of 5
Our children took us to the Big Island of Hawaii and this is one happy Mum and Dad. Besides enjoying absolutly everything and everybody on this piece of Paradise, we were very lucky to be staying at the Rabbit and Dragon in beautiful Pahoa. This place has a tropical decor to go with the tropical natural pool and the birds, fish, flowers, lanai, and amazing attention to detail. We LOVED it. Also, attention was given to cleanliness and convenience. Thank you so much for caring about every little thing and making our stay at the Rabbit and Dragon the relaxed, fun time one dreams of having when in Hawaii. Aloha and many thanks.

Nothing could be better...

  • 5 of 5
At first I was trying to rent some ocean-front property, but "Rabbit&Dragon" even better! Because it takes just over a minute to get to ocean, but nobody swims by your property, so you have more privacy!
There were 4 of us - 2 adults and 2 children and we were very comfortable. We were able to begin and end the day with snorkeling in our own hot pond - just like swimming in the huge aquarium, we took a couple of minutes walk to Champagne Pond for more snorkeling - the turtles were always there, and we drove 10-15-20 minutes for more swimming and snorkeling!
The hot pond is really big - I stayed in some hotel with the smaller swimming pools! The deck is big, too, and has an abundance of loungers as well as drying lines :-)
I think the description of property is accurate, but pictures don't reflect the complete beauty of the pool. Property was very clean, and it felt decorated with love and care - we didn't spend a lot of time inside, but some beautifully matched accent are very noticeable.
I already started looking for the cheap plain tickets to go back. I think rented for a price reasonable enough even for 2 travelers, so we might go back without children the next time!

Loved this house!

  • 4 of 5
We loved our stay here. The pool was beautiful and warm, little fish in the water to snorkel around. We adored the location, it was away from Hilo but close enough to all the various destinations on the eastside of the island to take great day trips. Had we stayed longer in the area, we would have spent more time hanging at the house, bbqing and swimming. We even saw a gigantic sea turtle at the Champagne Pool down the street. Each night we were serenaded by the local Koqui frogs. It was definitely tropical! Highly recommend this house for the adventurous and creative. This is a fun little place but kind of unconventional.

Owner's Response: Aloha and Mahalo for your review! We're so happy that you enjoyed yourselves. We love unconventional! This little cottage is very typical of the seaside cottages that were built here in the 40's and 50's. There are only a handful of these homes that have these incredible geothermally heated swimming ponds in the back yard. This is definitely one of our most popular rentals. Come experience it for yourself!

Aloha!
