exactly as advertised in photos, but better

  • 4 of 5

No need to leave this rental except for food runs. The warm (even all winter) ocean inlets right out the door, full of schools of coloured fishes, and angels, needles,eels, puffers, mullets - lots to watch without even needing a snorkel! Every afternoon the turtles came to sleep in the next door lagoon and you could watch them from above thru the crystal clear waters.

Grass to play on, water toys available,warm private lagoon (with its own fish life) small BBQ pavilion on the lower level. Great

The lanai overlooks the yard, so you can have a drink while the sun goes down & watch the kids swim or play. Outdoor sand shower (not very sandy here tho) Nice supply of towels, including ones to use at the beach. Very clean! & maintained well.

Spacious inside with 2 full suites for bathroom privacy, good showers. There are up to date electronics, as well as a well supplied kitchen. Cook while visiting with friends/family in the open plan great room. Beautiful views from every window!! Every one!

Parking is easy for 2 cars on the property, and the grounds are immaculate all the time. Great sunrises, great sunsets, pretty green & blue geckos keep the decks bug free.

I will & already have given this listing to friends & family.

We loved an ocean you could swim in in december, the lava tour at the transfer station in Pahoa, and Pahoa, of course.

We enjoyed the green heavenly drive to Kalapana & the Alahanui warm ponds on the way.

We loved the rainy drive to Waimea's tasty brew pub for lunch & the Waipio valley overlook, the waterfalls along the way. In the jungle, wild orchids bloom & philodendrons worthy of a tarzan swing drape across the limbs of huge trees, giant wild avocados fall thru the forest into hapu fern clumps bigger than your car. Take the old highway as much as you can, the goodies are often hidden. Take your time. Magic needs a moment….

Lunch in Volcano National park at the overlook, with the caldera spewing smoke just outside the window while you dine on wonderful local sourced foods, and more tasty locally brewed drinks.

Walk the gorgeous parks & waterways of old Hilo town, so beautifully human in scale, its a terrific ocean front haven.

We had our best meals @ Clearpond Paradise, making them out of Big Island foods & fishes - plan to visit the farmers markets & buy local. Everything you need to make it yummy is there.

Beautiful place; hope to return!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the VRBO description and photos is completely accurate. Loved the Champagne Pond next door and the fish in the warm, private pond. Most of the fish hide behind the house so be sure to snorkel through the narrow opening beside the house to the back. The house is perfect -- very clean and exceptionally well-maintained. Great customer service. Location is perfect for touring Puna. We have previously stayed elsewhere in Puna, but this community is the best we've seen. Only shortcoming was algae in the front pond but we understand the owners will correct that when the arrive in a couple of weeks. We highly recommend this rental.

Wonderful family retreat to reconnect

  • 5 of 5

The house and location was perfect! It was a great place to reconnect with the kids and have some quality family time. The home was clean and very comfortable. Size was also perfect - not too small or too big. The warm pond in front of the home was an absolute joy! It was great, as a parent, not having to worry about my young children swimming by themselves as you can see them from the lanai. We did venture out to the beach in front of the home, but it was so much more convenient to take a dip in your very own pond. Not to mention the awesome snorkeling in the pond also. We planned our meals out at the home and to be honest we didn't want to go anywhere for dining as the family swam until the sun went down. Overall, it was the best vacation we had! The only concern we had was bugs coming out in the evening. I think they were attracted to the house lights, so we dined by candle light outside to avoid dealing with these bugs. Maybe the home needs a monthly pest control plan to keep these critters away. Other than that we look forward to returning.

We have found the one!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I vacation in Kapoho every summer with our children and we have rented several different homes. We have rented homes both in the gated community with Champagne pond and in the Waiopae area. This rental home by far has been the best. The pond is perfect for children and our children had the most fun at Clearpond Paradise. We loved the beach access through the locked gates which allowed us to enjoy some fishing at the beach. We will be staying at Clearpond Paradise again in the summer.

Mahalo,

Clearpond is a dream

  • 5 of 5

This was our families second time to Clearpond and it was even better than the first. The house is comfortable and open but the pool, the yard AND the beach make this a one in a million property. We hope to return next year...and every year after that ;)

A Very Pleasant Place

  • 5 of 5

The property is large and very nicely landscaped. there is a big lawn and a large clear warm pond that is mostly fresh water. It extends behind the house and becomes the pond of the house next door. The beach (all lava and some black sand) is reached through a gate at the back of the property. The champagne pond is nearby and reached from the beach area or a narrow path from the road near the house. The swimming and the fish were just as good in the private clear pond as in the champagne pond. The house is in excellent condition with a recently renovated bath and new appliances in the kitchen with a nice oven. There are two bedrooms. I would rearrange the beds and put the king in the master and the queen with the double in the guest room. Both bedrooms need blinds. The master has only shears and the other nothing on the main window. The sun comes up early and we were on California time. We enjoyed the swimming and snorkeling and a trip to Volcano National park. Overall we liked the place very much and would rent it again and advise others to do so. The rental agent is very friendly and helpful.

The house is located approximately 30 miles south of Hilo and about 12 miles east of Pahoa.

Other Activities: Lava flow viewing, Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Wildlife Viewing, Health/Beauty Spa

Note: As of 10/2014, there is a lava flow slowly advancing towards Pahoa. This could be a once in a lifetime chance to witness a change in the Hawaii landscape, if the lava advances into the town. There is a possibility that the highway 130 could be covered by the lava. The County has already built several alternate contingency routes - good gravel roads for travel to and from the Puna area, if needed. The car rental companies will allow rental cars to use these roads.
