We Loved Our Stay!

  • 4 of 5

This house was an adventure in the very best way. The view is incredible, and the kids loved snorkeling in the ponds adjacent to the property and at the nearby Kapoho tide pools. The house was clean and had every amenity we looked for including extra snorkel gear and a pristine BBQ for enjoying dinners on the deck. This was a perfect base camp for our adventures that was hard to leave each day. It feels remote and away from the cities and resorts. Town is eight miles away, with good grocery stores and restaurants. We enjoyed Pele's for breakfast, New York Pizzeria and Paolo's Bistro. Sophia was responsive and helpful with all our questions. Great location for exploring Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and for a night bike ride to the lava flow from Kalapana.

Best property ever.

This was the best property we have ever stayed in on any of the islands. The snorkling was absolutely perfect for everyone in our party and the neighborhood was lovely.

Lovely location in Kapoho

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed this lovely ocean front home. It was quite roomy, the mattresses were good, and all that we needed was available. The super great location at Champagne Pond (direct access from the house), plus another pond at the house (for only those on the property) made it a perfect winter storm location in Hawaii. Even with the trades blowing and the ocean raging, the kids were able to swim each day and have a blast. A few sprinkles in late November, but temps were near 80 each day. Snorkeling was good! Sophia was super to work with and even brought a camera charger I'd left behind to me in Kona. Very restful location with amazing sunrises.

Our family had an amazing week at the Paradise Home! The private snorkeling pond is incredible and it is just a few steps to Champagne Pond. The view from the deck is absolutely stunning--amazing to wake up the sunrise! This house is wonderful for anyone who wants a more authentic, local Hawaiian experience, away from crowds and tourist traps. It is a 5 minute walk to the oceanfront lava fields--incredible. Funky Pahoa has everything you need and only 10 minute drive. This is not a fancy resort area and you cannot walk to any restaurants, etc--it is great if you want to stay home and swim and snorkle, or head out for sightseeing. Really fabulous location!
