Honu's Hideaway - A Warm, Inviting Tide Pool Just Outside Your Door!

HONU'S HIDEAWAY IS ONE OF THOSE HIDDEN GEMS that you appreciate more with every step you take through the house and grounds. Completely remodeled in 2010, the owner spared no expense to make the house comfortable and stylish, always thinking of the guest experience. It's a perfect place to relax with the large living/dining/kitchen area under the high ceilings that are covered in beautiful tropical woods. The home has a contemporary feel with nice appliances, dishes, linens, and the most gorgeous granite countertops we've seen.

Enjoy this short preview.

WHEN YOU'RE NOT SNORKELING OR SWIMMING, you'll find a large flat-screen satellite TV with Dish Satellite, Blu-ray DVD player, IPod/FM stereo system and Wireless Broadband in the back bedrooms for your convenience. Honu's Hideaway has 3 bedrooms, all with classy Hawaiian decor and high-quality firm beds. The large master bedroom has a king bed and en suite bath, the second bedroom has a queen bed, and the third bedroom has twins. Use of all 3 bedrooms will increase the cleaning fee. Both full baths have wide pocket doors for those with limited mobility; one with shower/bath and one with low step in shower.

BUT WAIT! THE BEST PART IS THE POND! This may be the most charming, tranquil and inviting shared tide pool in the area; varying in depth from 2-12 ft. Just one glance and you can visualize yourself immersed in the warm 89 degree water, swimming, snorkeling or floating for hours on one of the rafts thoughtfully provided by the owner. Beautiful palm trees and tropical plants surround the pond.

IF YOU CAN TEAR YOURSELF AWAY FROM THE POND, relax on the outdoor lanai with top-of-the-line wicker furniture, or have a barbecue and dine at the outdoor teak table that seats 4 comfortably. (The BBQ is both gas - supplied - _and_ briquets - BYO). You'll find a large flat-screen TV with Dish Satellite, Blu-ray DVD player, IPod/FM stereo system and Wireless Broadband in the back bedrooms (only) for your convenience.

WHEN YOU'RE READY TO EXPLORE THE AREA, Champagne pond (for snorkeling) is only a 1 minute walk and less than a block away, so you can easily hear the sounds of the ocean from the house. Wai?opae/Kapoho Tide Pools offer great snorkeling and are only a 2 minute drive out the gate.

HONU?S HIDEAWAY ENDEAVORS TO BE A GREEN HOUSE; using green cleaners wherever possible, have installed solar hot water, use fans only not air conditioning, have a clothesline for guests use, encourage guests to conserve electricity, have green shopping bags available for guests use and offer compost and garbage recycling facilities. The house affords privacy as it has a lovely bamboo fence and is located within the lovely walking area of Beach Lots, the gated community. This is NOT a party house, the owner lives just down the street, this is a tasteful well-appointed home and we endeavor to keep it that way, for your enjoyment.

HONU'S HIDEAWAY IS WAITING FOR YOU at an affordable price! Once you stay here and experience the home, pond and grounds, you'll know why we call this place a true hidden gem. If it is booked for your dates, check out the sister property, LUANA HIDEAWAY just two doors down and created by the same decorator!

Year-round rate range is $125 - $255 per night, depending upon party size and dates of your visit. Cleaning fee ranges from $125 to $175, also depending upon party size., one-time $35 damage waiver fee.

Mosquito Hideaway
Lynda B. from Oceanside, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014
Place was clean, liked the location. There was construction going on, would liked to have been warned about it. The mosquitoes in the house were terrible. My grandson and I were covered in bites.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Aloha Coast RealtyHawaii Holiday Vac. Rentals
Mahalo for your review! We are not aware of any construction nearby, but owners of other homes in the area are under no obligation to inform us of their building or renovation plans, so we are usually not aware of new construction projects until guests notify us. We checked with the owner of Honu's Hideaway, who lives a few doors down, and she said she is not aware of any construction either. All the windows in the house are screened, so there should not be any mosquitoes - please be sure to keep doors closed to keep bugs outside where they belong ;-) There are mosquito coils kept in the kitchen utility drawer for use on lanai at dusk which is usually the only time of day that they are noticeable.

The only downside to this place is you have to close all the doors and windows at night to lessen the noise from the coqui frogs. They are amusing the first night but by the third night a pain.

This is a fantastic property in a nice, quiet location. The tide pool is an awesome bonus to the house and we enjoyed taking a dip every morning or afternoon. It's a great feature that will make you want to stay at the property! It's about 45 minutes to Volcanoes National Park and an hour to Punalu'u Black Sand Beach. We highly recommend this place!

It was a complete surprise to enter such an inviting place! We had no idea. Beautifully decorated, thoughtfully designed and supplied.Felt like a week in our own home, luxurious at that. Only problem was the lighting in the kitchen was lacking, as I found I had to wear my headlamp to do the dishes!We will return...

All I can say is it was truly paradise.
Jaimila N. from Oakland, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in February, 2014
All I can say is it was truly paradise. My daughter felt safe enough in the lagoon to learn to snorkel. Then one block away a larger lagoon that fed into the ocean. I baked a cake in a very well appointed kitchen for our birthdays. The only downside was the beds the twin beds squeak a lot and the kids didn't sleep so well in then and the king was pretty worn. My opinion, the mama bear/ queen size bed was the only one i could get comfortable on. But overall, It couldn't have been more perfect.

We stayed a week in Kona and one week here, and Honu's Hideaway was definitely the highlight. We swam at least twice a day, and spent much more time than we expected at 'home' enjoying the comforts of the house and property. Can't say enough wonderful things! We will be going back one day!

Great Vacation House for Family

Stayed for 9 days in December, 2013
My family enjoyed renting this house for nine days during the year-end holidays. The tidally influenced pool is super! The house had everything we wanted (except a little more sunshine). Warning: the pool is all deep; I wouldn't stay there with small nonswimming children.

Wonderful home, wonderful location
A guest from Berkely, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in October, 2013
We had a wonderful time at Honu's Hideaway--the house is beautiful and very comfortable with everything we needed including water play items (a few snorkels, floaties, etc.). We enjoyed peaceful swims in our own backyard tidepool and LOVED walking just accross the street to snorkel in Champagne Pond. Kapoho was a great place to stay, lots to do right in Kapoho, and a perfect base for island exploring. Kathy (the owner) was AMAZING--friendly, responsive, and very helpful. She easily accomodated our special arrival and departure needs, even making sure we had extra keys and gate tags for separate arrivals of different members of our group. The house was beautifully clean on arrival, complete with fresh flowers. Mahalo Kathy, we loved our stay at Honu's Hideaway! My only complaint was that the Hawaiian Holidays staff were not very responsive or acomodating, in fact, telephone staff were not local and didn't seem to know the area or the properties.

Great Home, Awesome outdoor space
Monica G. from Oakland, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013
loved this place! The furniture was super comfy. The outdoor space was great and very welcoming. Super close to all the great snorkeling. Only downside, bathrooms were really hot and not ventilated well. Back master bedroom was on the hotter side, but there were extra fans provided and the bed was really comfy. I'd totally stay here again

Relax and enjoy
A guest from Fairfax, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in August, 2013
The property was lovely, clean and well equipped. GREAT snorkeling nearby and the property was an oasis itself with a beautiful landscaped yard and the tide pool. A great place to relax and unwind. It was a little farther from Hilo than I'd expected so aside from the snorkeling, very little was close. Still it was not a bad location to explore Hilo and Volcano National Park.

Paradise Found!
A guest from Burlington, ON recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013
We enjoyed 3 nights at Honu;s Hideaway in July, 2013 and could not have asked for a better experience - our only regret was that we were not staying longer. The house and surrounding property are amazing. From your steps you can walk to champagne pond and it is a very short drive to the tide pools. The location is perfect for visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (1 hour) and Hilo. We even went on an Ocen Lava tour that departed minutes from the house. We loved the gated community, the privacy and the geothermal lava pool (shared with the neighbours who are lovely).

We loved our vacation stay-just amazing. Our own private tidal pool! champagne pond across the street! a symphony of coqui frogs! Our only complaint was that on the last day, we were woken up by tree cutters at 7am who cut all the trees down around the pond because of fire ants! we knew it was time to go when they chopped down paradise.

We had a wonderful dream vacation. The house is beautiful and stocked with everything we needed and could even imagine needing. We really appreciated the sharp knives - not usual in a home rental.The pond was a really big hit and Champagne ponds within walking distance a delight. We loved it all!

Great Place! But Pood access limited
A guest from Cougar, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in April, 2013
We have stayed here several times and always enjoyed the property. I made suggestions to make it a little more comfy and the owner stepped right up. The only regret I have about my stay here is access to the pond. It is very difficult for those who might bne disabled, older or both to get out of the swimming area. i only swam once as it hurt my knee to crawl back out and I didn't want to reinjure so I couldn't take advantage of the pond. I may have to just look elsewhere for easier access. I hate to do that!I see in the guestbook that others are having the same experience...hope it can be remedied! Thanks Ardie Stein

Lovely stay
A guest from Mill Valley, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in April, 2013
We loved the place. Have stayed in a Kapoho house before and really love the tide pools and general feel of the area. Location is right next to the Champagne pond and also very close to ocean. The house has a nice floor plan and worked very well for our family of 4.I was impressed with how well thought out things were and the nice touches like, water mats, game boards, yoga mats, hangers everywhere to put towels and bathing suits. The only thing that was less pleasant was the construction on the little house across the pond. Workers were not there but the place just doesn't look very nice and there is an unattractive plastic along the road and the side of the pond. Anyways we did like having the pond to ourselves... Thanks for a great stay.

Peaceful, Private and Relaxing
A guest from Waipahu, HI recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in March, 2013
The management company was EXCELLENT. Answered all of my questions before I arrived in a timely manner. Very attentive. The home/property is lovely and considerate - anything you may want or need is there. The fresh fruit that greeted us was heavenly and huge - we couldn't finish it all. The pond was heaven on earth. The neighbors were very nice and informative. My only concern is over the access/use of the pond. We saw the property pins and its obvious that the overwhelming majority of the pond rests in the neighbor's yard. Once we knew that we felt like "trespassers" when we used the pond, BUT, the neighbors were there while we were there and they were okay with us using the pond. I think the owner should make it clear to her tenants that she has secured permission of the neighbors for us to use the pond without worry as the pond is the SELLER for the property. =)

Response from Aloha Coast Realty, LLC/Hawaii Holiday Vac. Rentals
Thank you for your review and suggestion for the notice about the pond. Hawaii law is very clear that ocean waters do not 'belong' to any private person. Swimming may not be restricted by anyone as long as access is legal, which in this case it is, hence no legal requirement for to put guests mind at ease, a notice may be just the ticket :) Mahalo!, Hawaii Holiday Management

hi all I stay a lot of places in the state each year and thought this was a very nice, clean and well managed property. owner and marketing does a great job. A nice location but a little dissapointed with champain pond. access to pond is between houses was a drag A little cenent walkway and no sand? "nice turtle that lives there though!" Champain pond is a great location if you have a jeep and you drive past the light beacon!(didn't swim though rough and windy there but after all it was february. I will say the other area south was great for swimming around and easy access. house was great but owner should really update the wifi router for house "come-on really? only $175 or so for long range router" I do rentals also and people expect good internet connection! wonderful stay and would recomend this property. one other thing was we only had one access key for gate and 2 cars so that was tough too deal with. (i never did ask about a second access key) so that could have been my fault. i can't say enough about the house, clean nicly laid out and very relaxed atmosphere. and of course very warm pool! a very different stay for me becouse I have never stayed on that side of the island before. Mahalo until next time

Thanks for your nice review! The internet is a big problem that, believe me, if we and the Owner could fix it, we would! Access is very limited in East Hawaii and this just happens to be one of those spots that no service provider can get decent access continue to work on a solution. Internet is accesible in the back bedrooms so guests certainly can keep connected. Mahalo, Hawaii Holiday Management

Needs a little update
Ardelle S. from Cougar, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 11 days in January, 2013
We have stayed here several times enjoyed and would return. These are the things that would make me choose another similar property. 1) The pond i difficult to enter and exit especially for us with aging knees and backs.2) The maid keeps washing everything down with the same greasy rag evidently. It took me 3 runs at the glass coffee table to get it clean. 3) The shower stall in the mb floods the floor easily. it need a weighted shower curtain. 4) The second bath is Hot all the time as the air does not circulate. needs a fan! 5) The stove top has no fan either and gets uncomfortably hot to use especially in the summer. Last but not least and this is a big one. The owner comes over and in too often. She comes in when we are not there. We have met her and were suprised when this happens. She has a georgous place and we really have enjoyed for the miost part, but I have met others who have stayed and they say the same thing about the pond and the lack of circulation and privacy. By the way, it is my understanding that she does not own the pond area or procured rights to its use. We met the owners this trip and they let us know it was 99% on their property. Luckily they were kind enough to let us use it. I don't know what the future brings, but I think she is advertising this falsely. I will ask before I rent again or refer. Mmost of these are easy, inexpensive fixes..but the pond is a real issue, both its access in the future and difficult ingress, eggres. One more thing. as I said before we have been there several times now (we come at least twice a year and we have never been offered a discount as a repeat client. I also think going from $135.00 to $225.o00 especially for us returners is really disproportionate. Please give this your consideration. Thanks !

Thanks for your review and thank you for booking your next stay at the same property (it must not have been as bad as you say)! We felt it was necessary to respond to the issues you brought up since we feel they shine an unfair light. The access into the pond is certainly legal from Honu's Hideaway and does not require permission from the neighbors. All Hawaiian ocean waters are public, as the Honu's Hideaway pond is. There are 3 portable fans in the house and if you read other reviews, this does not seem to be an issue. The house is VERY clean. Our prices vary by the season so even though you HAVE received discounts, you did pay a higher price in high would! The owner lives close by and does often greet guests and is available for anything a guest may request but she does not stop by uninvited. Mahalo, Hawaii Holiday Management

What a great place!
Andy S. from Waukesha, WI recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in January, 2013
This was our 2nd of 3 places on the Islands (our only on the Big Island) and it was a blast. The tide pool on the property was warm and inviting (and someone who is afraid of water in our group even learned how to snorkel in it - a HUGE deal for her!!) The property is close to a lot of nice snorkeling. It's a ways away from everything else, which we liked. It's a quite gated community. We did make day trips to the Botanical Gardens in Hilo (neat) and Volcanoes NP. Not to far for any of that, just enough to not be in a big city.The house itself is gorgeous and so very well kept, inside and out. The landscaping is very well done. A wonderful place I'd stay at again!

The house, garden and especially the warm pond exceeded our expectations!!!!! I had no idea how wonderful and relaxing the stay would be. Everything one could want is provided at Honu's Hideway . The furnishings, bedding, towels, appliances all high end. We arrived at dusk and the house was easy to find and very private behind bamboo fences. The frogs were chirping and you could hear the ocean in background. It was like stepping into paradise. My only regret is that I booked too few days. Once you get to the house relaxation seems more important than sightseeing. The house is that good.

Modern home in a rural town
A guest from Burbank, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in November, 2012
Honu's Hideaway was a wonderful vacation home located in a quiet gated community. Kapaho is very rural, so make sure to pick up groceries/supplies in hilo or pahoa. It was also a little hard to find in the dark, so try to arrive during daylight! The realty company provided good directions and suggestions of local markets. We had our own private pond, a few minute walk from Champagne Pond/ocean, and few minute drive from Wai Opae tide pools and lava tree state park. The house had modern decor and appliances, including a nice coffee maker and Washer/dryer. There was even a cabinet of games and play doh, which our 3 year old loved. The owner provided a book of detailed maps of eastern Hawaii, which came in handy navigating through rural areas. Overall, house was a great location, well stocked, very comfortable.

Well Managed excellent Stay
A guest from Duncan, BC recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in October, 2012
My Wife and I stayed here for I week and loved the property. The house is very nice and well furnished. The tide pool is amazing. The Management company was very professional and went way beyond my expectations to make sure I was satisfied with the rental.The reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is the internet is only available in the master bedroom making it very difficult to surf the internet and still be involved in the Holiday. The owner was trying to get this fixed and if she is successful I would give it 5 Stars. Really a Great place to stay.

Paradise on the windward side of the big island
Caroline F. from Princeton Junction, NJ recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in July, 2012
This home exceeded our expectations. A tropical paradise. Quiet, safe, and comfortable. Carley, the owner has thought of and provided anything you might need on your vacation. My family and I stayed for awek on this side of the island after spending a wek in Kona. Weenjoyed this laid back setting more than Kona. It's a great point to explore the touristy side of the island(something we wanted to do since we have made many trips and stayed on the Kona side of the island. Staying here allowed us to explore volcanoes national park at sunset and dark, and to spend more time exploring kopoho pools-great snorkeling. Staying on the wet sidle of the island I was afraid we would be inundated with Mosquitos at Honu's Hideaway-I am happy to report this was not the case. It was most enjoyable spending early mornings and late evenings on the lanai and in the beautiful natural pool! Mahalofor a wonderful memorable stay! I am so sad it ended so quickly.

Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012
Great week at Honu's. Layout of the house worked very well for us + there was everything we needed + more for our week-long vacation - plenty of beach towels, cooler, snorkels, floaties etc.... Very clean + well stocked kitchen. All furniture, appliances etc.. in great condition. No bugs to speak of in the house - just a few little geckos. Loved hanging out on the lanai with the kids happily playing in the semi-private tide pool (shame about the orange fence on the other side - only thing I can really fined fault with!). Highlight of the week was hiking out (2 hours each way from the end of the road in Kalapana - be warned!) to poke sticks in molten lava - use the guys (Ikaika or Andrew)at Kalapana Cultural Tours, they are excellent. Snorkeling in all the local tide pools was a blast. Would highly recommend Honu's Hideaway (and I'm picky!). Thanks Kathy + the management team!

A guest from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan recommends this property.

Absolutely beautiful house and yard. The house is roomy, with loads of windows and 3 French doors to access lanai and clear, warm tide pool in the garden. Very well stocked kitchen, and many thoughtful extras provided by the owner...umbrellas, flashlights, floating mats and some snorkeling gear for the pond. There is a BBQ and plenty of room to eat on the lanai table. Wash and dryer on site. The garden is lovely with lots of flowering plants. Location is good...close to Volcano national park and good acces to Hilo and the airport (about a 40min drive on good roads). Kathy the owner is very friendly and lives close by if you need any help or advice...she stopped in to let us know that the lava was flowing so we made a quick trip out after dark to see it....the kids were thrilled. There are some nice restaurants in pahoa if you feel like a meal out. We had a fabulous, relaxing holiday with all the comforts of home and the added bonus of paradise outside!

Beautiful House in a friendly gated community near heated ponds!
Yuko T. from Los Angeles, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in February, 2012
The house is BEAUTIFULLY furnished with Hawaiian decor. The kitchen is stocked with good quality appliances, cookware, and dishes. The garden is gorgeous, and there is a private pond you can swim in. We had breakfast in the lanai every morning, and listened to birds and frogs sing throughout the day. The Champagne Pond (walking distance), the Hot Pond, and the Warm Pond are all near by and is a fantastic experience - the ocean water is naturally heated, is shallow enough to be able to walk, and you can open your eyes underwater and it doesn't hurt! If you snorkel, you can see fish. The owner lives 2 doors down and was very nice. She checked in from time to time to make sure we were doing ok. She left us with her favorite guide book, detailed map of the east side of hawaii with every street, and her personal recommendations of things to do in the area which were right on (farmer's market, beaches, etc.) The house is located in a gated community and felt very safe. It also had a combination lock for the front door so we didn't have to worry about carrying a key around that might get lost or stolen. We were ABSOLUTELY satisfied with the house and would LOVE to return someday!!!

Zach's stay at Honu house
Zachary H. from Tahoe City, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in January, 2012
We had a very nice vacation. The house was great. A few things would make the house excellent: 1) the owner needs to replace the burners in the barbeque. 2) The wireless internet connect is patchy and slow. This should be improved or clearly communicated to future renters. 3) Movies are not available on the TV, although I believe it was advertised that movies are available. A password is needed, which probably means the owner needs to pay more. This was not a big deal for us, but should be clearly communicated. 4) Providing a couple of bicycles would really add to experience. There is very nice bike riding in the area, and we would have ridden bikes to the snorkle area in vacation land. We very much appreciated that the house had many modern conveniences and pretty much everything worked well. This would be a great house for a family vacation.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Aloha Coast Realty, LLC/Hawaii Holiday Vac. Rentals
Thank you for your great review! We'd like to address a few of the points you brought up. BBQs take a lot of abuse in our tropical, salty air and we feel that replacing a working BBQ is irresponsible to the environment. It works great and we'll keep it until it needs to be replaced. Same issue with bikes. There is no interior place to store bikes and they would rust quickly and have to be thrown into a landfill. Internet service is very sparse in the Kapoho area and Honu's Hideaway is one of the few properties that actually has internet available. It works great in the back bedrooms! We don't advertise that movies are available. There is a DVD player in the house and a rental store in Pahoa. Thanks again for your suggestions, we will continue to strive for complete guest satisfaction! Mahalo, Hawaii Holiday Management

Four of us (a family with 2 children, 12 and 8 years old) rented the house for a week in January of 2012. It is a great place for a family vacation. The house is beautiful, the private warm pond is fantastic. The warm Champagne pond where you can swim with turtles is a 3-minute walk.

Terrific Thanksgiving Vacation
A guest from Denver, Colorado recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in November, 2011
We stayed at Honu's Hideaway in Kapoho Thanksgiving week. The location is away from the city and just steps away from the ocean. The house was fantastic and the kids were so happy to have a pond in the yard. It was terrific to be able to swim around in the evenings and in the morning before heading out to see the sights. The house had everything we needed from snorkel equipment to swim noodles. We had plenty of room for the five of us. The Kapoho tide pools were just a few minutes down the road and the Ahalanui warm ponds were a great place to relax.

Sara D. from Honolulu, HI recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in November, 2011
The place is even nicer than the pictures, and very clean. The beds were quiet comfortable. The snorkel equipment was better than what we brought - they must have just purchased new equipment.. We had a couple questions here and there, and everytime we called the rental company they answered and helped us through our question. We would definitely choose this place over other places in the area if we come back. Only downsides: the railing into the private pond is made of PVC piping (common in the area) but was not strong enough to support my father who is heavy and elderly. He had booked the place because he wanted to swim in the pond but because he couldn't rely on the rail he had to forgo it. The rest of us (3) swam it in many times throughout the days, it was fabulous and I liked it better than the other house ponds we saw. The other downside was that this vacation was during my school studies so I had picked a place with internet access but there wasn't really any after all (long story but the owner says she is working on this - so could be fixed soon). bottom line - if you are staying in the area this is the place to pick.

My wife and I spent the third leg of our 50th birthday vacation here at Honu's Hideaway. We spent a few days on the Kona side then a couple days in the rain forest past Volcano Village and our last four days relaxing at this home. The only thing we might have changed about our trip would have been to stay here longer. The drive towards Kapoho is spectacular. Once you are inside the gate the neighborhood it is unassuming, quiet and feels like you are home. Anyone you might pass on the road has a big smile for you and a wave. The owner of Honu's Hideaway greeted us shortly after we arrived and was a fabulous host. The house is clean, inviting with everything anyone would need to have a great stay. The pond was GREAT! We spent hours in it day and night. The best time snorkeling was mid morning when the sun was on the water. We will definitely be back here in the not so distant future for another adventure. Next time we will stay here the whole time.

We loved the wonderful place with the tasteful interior right from the beginning. The house has everything you need (and more) for a brilliant vacation. It was not easy to convince our son to leave the tide pool.We found the location convenient for day trips to Volcano National Park, snorcheling at the Kapoho tide ponds and other sites. The variety of recommendations for restaurants provided helped a lot. On arrival, the nice owner came to greet us and provided some additional helpful information. We liked sitting outdoor at night listening to the frogs and watching the stars. It made us feel far away from reality.The only downs:We needed someone to help us to open the lock for the key pick up (technical explanation could be improved). However, someone from the agency came imediately to help. The next restaurants and shops are 8 miles away, but the location in return is nice and quiet.

The house is actually better than the advertisement photos show. Besides the crystal-clear, perfect-temperature pond, all of the beautifully landscaped plants are lushly tropical, flowering, or edible. The nearby owner was extremely helpful. Our biggest regret is that we didn't reserve more nights here before moving on to Kona.I wish that I could go on about the property, but I must now tell about the management company. When one of our party was not able to join us, I asked for a refund of the difference. (Our Kona rental immediately credited our card.) I received this from Hawaii Holiday Vac. Rentals:"Aloha Jim,Mahalo for the note!We're only able to adjust rates for fewer guests while the arrival is more than 60 days in advance. Once the balance is paid in full we're not able to make rate adjustments. Sorry about that!We're thrilled to hear that you had a great stay at Honu's Hideaway and hope you'll keep us in mind for future visits!Warmest Aloha,"My suggestion would be to reserve for the minimum party in case anyone should cancel.

We can not say enough about what a great place to stay Honu's Hideaway was to relax and edulge ourselves with while visiting The Big Island. It was the biggest part of making the trip very memorable. We had great weather, enjoyed Pahoa, hiked to the lava flowing into the sea, shopped at the farmers markets, snorkeled in several areas, kayaked near the Cptn Cook monument, and took in all the lush scenery in the area. We were pleasently surprised at how much there was to do in the Hilo side of the island so close to where we were staying. The house had all the conveniences of home and more. Wifi was great to have so we could use our iPad and post photos and video to Facebook as it was happening. Best of all was the warm, convenient, and inviting natural pool next to the house that we lazed in daily. We even got tothe point that we liked the sound of the prolific sound of the Coquis.

We live in Waikoloa Village and were disappointed that major construction was going on on the house directly across from the house's pond. It wouldn't hurt for your staff to wonder these neighborhood's every once and a while to see what type of construction or whatever is going on. We could of saved 700.00 by staying home and listen to construction noise. I know it's in your contract, but pretty if I was coming from the mainland and had that crane and nailgun blasting all day. The place is nice but waking up on our last morning with a crane installing the roof trusses was a bummer! i personally won't recommend your company to anyone I know plus I mention neat places to mainland visitors when they want to go see the volocano but I wont' be recommending your company.

This was so unfortunate! The house being built went up in record time two lots away from our wonderful rental, Honu's Hideaway.

Unfortunately, they didn't let us know about the construction noise until the day they checked out. We really do care about our guests' experience! This is the cornerstone of our business!

Honu's Hideaway is an amazing place, the best rental house/condo I've ever stayed in. Beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Great snorkeling in the backyard pond and in the ocean just across the street. One warning: the pond is deep and drops off quickly. If you have children that are not strong swimmers, you'll need to keep a close eye on them. But they loved the house-provided rafts and floats. Well supplied kitchen that had almost every utensil you could think off. After hitting the market in Pahoa (about 8 miles away) for food you'll never need to leave.Wonderful place, the entire family loved it.
