Guestbook comments from the manager
Exceptionally Unique property, nothing else like it in the world. Location can't be beat, and it is right here in the USA! No passports, no swine flu, no diarrhea. My 5 yo son with autism had the time of his life learning to snorkel in the lagoon. He was on his own swimming around on the second day. We'll be back for sure.

TRULY ENCHANTING

  • 5 of 5
Wow! What a truly enchanting place, it's so hard to describe what a great time we had. On our next to the last day, we swam with no fewer than 10 sea turtles in the Champagne Pond next door. The fish and your pond were of course awesome. Loved the breezes, the sun, the rain, and most of all we loved how close our family became, us 3 island adventurers! Hope to visit next year! Mahalo--
P.S. I was hoping we could watch the Wizard of Oz so that Evan could see Ann's Uncle ray Bolger. Unfortunately, he was too tired from swimming with the fish and turtles to watch a movie.

This place was a true gem. It was immaculate and inviting. The views are breath taking and of course the lagoon with over 500 fish of all size were just awesome. It was just a wonderful place. Can't wait to go back.

GREAT VIEWS/OKAY HOUSE

I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was clean.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:
Beautiful location with the private tide pool.
Not as quiet as hoped with public access close by...but not bad.
Caution: Don't stay if you need A/C because the house does not stay cool at night with all windows open and fans on. Will be tough on anyone with allergies because of the humid conditions and no A/C.
Caution: Don't stay unless you're okay with a very dated house, appliances, and fixtures. It's all about the ocean view and tide pool...not the house.

Reviewer Comments:
Second time at Lagoon House. The only thing I did not care for was the TV. What a piece of ****. Volume had a ghost in charge. (ha)
Audrey came by to greet us after we arrived and was very nice and genuine. Good people, that I would want as a neighbor. Lagoon was in very nice shape. Loads of fish and zero debris. Yard neatly trimmed and nice details in the house. Spotless, flowers, plenty of towels and kitchen well stocked for a family cooking meals.
I'm looking forward to my next trip to the house.

Manager responded on 5/12/2014:
Aloha and mahalo for your review. We love that you love Lagoon think it's awesome too! So sorry about the TV experience. We've been having trouble with the TV and the satellite connection and are working on it. We hope to have a new TV in be ready for your next visit!

Reviewer Comments:
We've stayed here the last 3 years, and a few other times in the last 10 years. Nothing in the house has been updated in that time. The house is clean, but worn. Needs new furniture, new entertainment system, and general painting and freshening. The lagoon however is fantastic with all the tropical fish. Puffy loves to eat snails out of your hand. Even with its faults we'll probably be back next year.

Reviewer Comments:
Had trouble getting rental office to return my calls. Online was OK, but only time I got response by phone was when I left message saying I would next contact Jessica. Also was told by Jessica (who was referred by one of her clients) that the "office" would give us "the best possible rate" on the rental. We got the going rate that was listed online. Next time we'll contact Audrey directly.

Manager responded on 1/2/2013:
Thank you for your review. We remember your stay quite well and felt we did give you good service. The person who referred you to us gave you the wrong contact phone number, hence a couple of days went by before we were able to get you in touch with the reservations office. We're sorry for the confusion but assure you this was not on our part. You were given the best rate available for the dates of your stay. Mahalo, Hawaii Holiday Management
