FANTASTIC BARGAIN FOR FISHING, SNORKELING, WHALE-WATCHING, OCEANSIDE STROLLS

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I really enjoyed our week-long stay at this vacation rental. The description is exactly as stated. It is very clean, and a comfortable size for two people – with a nice large kitchen area for cooking. The unit has all of the basic amenities – satellite TV, wireless high-speed internet, laundry machines, bath and beach towels, and bedsheets, as well as laundry and dish detergent, toilet paper and paper towels. For us environment/health-conscious folks, it has stainless steel cookware (in addition to nonstick), a drinking water filter, and the owner will recycle your recyclables if you separate them. The unit is bright and sunny, and there is a refreshing ocean breeze that wafts through.

While there is no ocean view from the ground floor unit (there is an ocean view from the upstairs unit), there is no other house between it and the water; a short walk will lead you to the bay area, ocean, and Champagne Pond, which is very warm and protected, for safe snorkeling. My husband went fishing every day all along the shoreline, and caught various fish.

There are numerous trails along the coast for exploring, whale-watching, and oceanside strolls. I was pleasantly surprised to find that there is green sand (olivine) mixed in with the black sand along the beach here! We did not get around to going over to Wai Opae to snorkel, but we did walk down the coast to a quieter, deserted area (I think the second patch of sandy beach that you come across when walking left/north along the coast) that has AMAZING, gigantic coral formations – you can see huge white/yellow spots of coral deep down, even while standing on the shoreline rocks. There is a little bit of a rock barrier offshore, which keeps the area somewhat protected, so the waves aren’t too ferocious for snorkeling. If you’re an adventurous sort, this is a hidden gem that you will likely have all to yourselves!

The owner Karen is super friendly and was very accommodating to our requests for more kitchen accessories, etc. She even let me attempt to open a coconut from a tree in the back yard (wish I had found the easy way to do this earlier on YouTube – just with a paring knife and corkscrew), and explained how to most effectively use a leaf off the patio aloe plant to help soothe my sunburn!

This is one of the less expensive oceanfront rentals, and it is a fantastic bargain. I would highly recommend it to anyone, particularly budget-conscious, value-oriented people like ourselves.

Champagne Pond is just a short stroll away from the house for a safe swim. The beautiful coral gardens of Wai Opae Marine Reserve are within walking distance and have superb snorkeling. Check out the Farmers Market on Friday's at Green Mountain and ask Smiley if you can check out the lake or hike up to the top for incredible views of Kapoho. The surf and boat launch at Pohoiki Bay are seven miles south, and you can stop at Ahalanui Hot Ponds along the way for a soak in Puna's thermal waters! Kalapana, near the ocean entrance to the lava flow, when Pele flows that way, is just 15 miles south on the scenic Hwy 137. Shopping and restaurants are 13 miles away in Pahoa.
