Cute little cottage
Scott W. from Umpqua, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in November, 2013
I'd never done VRBO before and it seemed a little complicated,(lots of emails back and forth) but it was worth it. his little house is a little old but very clean. It was like playing house! The tide pools there a great and the ones a few minutes walk to the south are even more interesting. Lots of coqui frogs at night but we liked the sound.

A Quirky Little Cottage
A guest from Burke, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in October, 2013
This small cottage is quiet and feels secluded, although it is surrounded by larger vacation rentals. It takes about 45 minutes to drive to Hilo-further than it looks. The 'architecture' is a bit weird. 3 very uneven steps down to the bathroom, one short half step down to the well-equipped kitchen. Be careful! If you want to use the hammock, bring bug spray. A lot of it.

October visit to Kapoho Beach
A guest from Bellingham, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 9 days in September, 2013
The cottage at Kapoho Beach is the perfect place to enjoy natural Hawaii. It is a simple cottage for 2 or 3 people with trade wind air conditioning and all the wonderful sounds of nature to put you to sleep at night, the serenading geckos and tree frogs against the background of the ever present surf. The cottage is very, very clean and well stocked with supplies and guides to the sights of the island. It is in a safe feeling and friendly neighborhood with easy access to the tide pools and "beach." There are markets and very good restaurants nearby. I reLly enjoyed our visit to Hawaii and staying at The Cottage at Kapoho Beach enhanced it.

Hard to find
A guest from Lafayette, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2013
The property itself was good. The problem was all the road work and construction going on. Roads were closed. Especially coming back at night , it was difficult to find, The view was good. The tide pool were very nice. We'd say again only after all the road work was done.

Anniversary Trip
William G. from Eureka, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2013
My wife and I stayed at the rental at the end of our anniversary trip so we could see the east side of the Big Island and go to the Volcano National Park. The location was perfect, the house was clean and convenient. The only thing I would suggest to the owners is to upgrade the kitchen a bit. It could use new pots and pans and sharp knives or at least a knife sharpener. Otherwise it was everything we were looking for. The location is a block from Champagne Pond, a very short drive to Waipoe Tide Pools and about an hour to the National Park. Great location.

Had a lovely 4 night stay in June 2013. I hope the cottage can remain this cute and unassuming among the bigger more modern houses in the neighborhood. (And maybe get a knife sharpener in the kitchen).Coqui!

Oregonians
A guest from Brightwood, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013
WE LOVED IT! The Cottage was cute, cozy and private, not that typical condo or rental house feel, it had personality. It was so nice to be able to sit outside in your own private yard, on the patio or on the lani with that great peek of the ocean. We enjoyed the ripe pineapple growing among the plants, the limes fresh from the tree everyday in our tea and the next guest should have been able to enjoy the bananas. The neighborhood was peaceful and everyone was very friendly. Water access was every where and beautiful. We could have stayed forever.

Perfect little cabin to get a feel of true Hawaii
Jennifer S. from Boulder, CO recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in November, 2012
This cabin was a perfect little place to experience Hawaii outside of the big resort areas. Unfortunately the lot next door built a two story house which blocks some of the view of the ocean; but you can still see it as you eat breakfast outside on the covered wrap around porch. Also it is short walk to access the various tidal pools in the area, and swimming in the Champagne pools is a must. It is comfortably set up, with all you need and more for cooking, linens (including beach towels), washer/dryer and a fantastic hammock. Highly recommend it, especially before the area gets to developed.

Worth It
Sara K. from Casa Grande, AZ recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in October, 2012
The cottage was pretty nice overall. Everything you would ever need in a house on vacation was there. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of dishes and cookware. Toaster, coffeemaker, microwave, stove, oven, etc. TV with Dish. There was WiFi but our phones did not connect to the internet even though they tethered with a strong signal just fine. No Verizon service at all. No worries, it's vacation and the phones worked fine a few miles down the road. There is a house phone anyways.The bed was ok, there were extra pillows and blankets if needed. The bathroom is laid out a little unusual but works just fine. The floor in the shower has a mesh type mat that is a little uncomfortable to stand on but we just left it there. You get a decent ocean view from the patio. Nice place to drink some coffee. Or you can walk about a minute to a stairway going right into the ocean. Champagne Pond takes maybe ten minutes to walk to but has more of a beach (not sand but pretty small lava rock) to relax on. The pond is nice to swim in and calm too. There is a washer and dryer. Little geckos everywhere. Be ready for the chirping frogs at night. They are loud and take a little getting used to. Kind of missed them once we were home though. Would stay again.

Loved Our Stay
A guest from North Pole, AK recommends this property.
Stayed for 10 days in June, 2012
The property and Cottage were perfect for a couple to stay in. Each day we discovered something new. The directions related to the fork in the road could be updated. We expected the fork in the road to be right at Lava Tree State Park, but it was actually farther on. Also, the tennis courts have become overgrown with vines and are no longer a good landmark for finding the Cottage. However, overall the directions were great.

A Quiet Relaxing Vacation

We planned day trips to beaches nearby but also north of Hilo. (On a previous trip, we had fully explored the volcanoes and the Kona coast.) We had no time commitments and could enjoy the beauty of the "Big Island" while the weather fully cooperated. We come away with beautiful memories of a time away from all the cares of the world.

The cottage at Kapoholo
David K. from Fresno, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in May, 2012
Really enjoyed your cottage. We were surprised at the final cost for something advertised at $95 per night. I suggest showing the 14% tax, cleaning fee and damage waiver upfront. All in all it was worth the money closer to $140 per night.

We are very upfront with our costs that are explained in detail when prices are quoted through our office. We do not always have control over advertising through all websites, so if you originally saw an ad on the web, the charges may not have appeared. We NEVER charge fees unless previously agreed to by a guest. Mahalo, Hawaii Holiday Management

Great Place to Stay near Champagne Pond
A guest from Homer, AK recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in January, 2012
My wife, 20 year old daughter and I had a wonderful time staying here. Everything was as described. Very clean, comfortable and welcoming. A 5 minute walk will bring you to all the access points to the ocean. (We actually prefer the snorkeling down the street at the tide pools but that is just us.) The only thing that was a slight downside was the workers doing construction next door. They start promptly at 8am and while the construction noise isn't bad, be prepared for a lot of "f-bombs" being freely tossed around in the course of their long distance conversations with each other. Aside from that, we had a wonderful stay in this lovely cottage.

Too bad about construction next door : (
A guest from Sebastopol, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in January, 2012
Very charming sweet simple place, very near to one of the few swimming entrances into the Kapoho bay. We would have been extremely happy with the cottage and the location if it wasn?t for the giant new house going in right next store on the ocean side (with construction workers from 8am ? 4pm every weekday and an intermittent loud tile saw). We were very thankful to be given a discount for the misfortune. This new house is so sad for this cottage, which I would hesitate to recommend because it is going to be much less of a serene place even once construction is done and the other house has vacation renters. We also had some trouble with a moldy smell through out the cottage, but every thing else about it was lovely!

Cute Vacation Home...Perfect Couples getaway!
A guest from Murphysboro, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in January, 2012
The house is perfect for two people. You can see and hear the ocean from the covered deck. Very relaxing. A short walk to warm tide pools and a short drive to farmers market and black sand beach in Pahoa. Gated community. We loved the fresh lemons and bananas growing on the property. Washer and dryer were a big plus. Construction next door but looks like they should be wrapping up soon. Outdoor shower. Tiny little ants everywhere, but if you clean up after yourself they aren't too bothersome. The last night we were there the whole neighborhood lost power, but we really didn't miss it!!! Tara, in the office, was extremely helpful and courteous through out our stay. Definitely a great deal and would stay here again!!

Cute cottage, but several problems
A guest from Tahoma, WA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in November, 2011
Cute cottage in a beautiful neighborhood with short walk to Champagne Pond. But we had annoying problems, something you don't want to deal with while on vacation! The WiFi had to be reset (after several phone calls), the bed spread was torn in two places, the toaster was broken, one skillet was disgusting and unusable, and the construction next door started at 8 am each day. Even when the new home is completed, the view from the cottage is very compromised compared to past years. This little place isn't on the water, doesn't have a flat screen TV or a dishwasher, and now there's a new 2-story home about 30 feet from the bedroom window! It's still a cute place, but the rent needs to come down given these shortfalls.

Cottage in Kopoho

Stayed for 7 days in November, 2011
The cottage is quite comfortable and it was clean. It's an older property and was charmingly funky. Great for 2 people but 3 would be a crowd. The only drawback is the construction right next door during the day and the new house has pretty much removed the view entirely. Kopoho is a lovely quiet little community and everyone is very friendly and helpful. I think I would stay here again.

Great location--don't miss Champagne Pond!
A guest from Duvall, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in October, 2011
Overall the cottage was a wonderful place to base the Hilo side of our vacation. I recommend getting there in daylight, we did the journey in the dark and it was tricky at best!Champagne Pond is amazing once you figure out how to access it (you need to swim in from the access point or walk across a lava field).Definitely recommend going to Costco on the Kona side before you get here as grocery options are limited and expensive. The bathroom/shower unit was a bit cramped, but we made it work. The laundry is on the outside and seems like new.The view is obstructed by the construction, but we found the crew to be very friendly and they don't work on Saturday or Sunday. Enjoy!

Two quick days at "the Cottage"
Rob W. from Homewood, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in October, 2011
Nice little cottage centrally located near Champagne Pond. The only unfortunate aspect is that the oceanside neighbors are building a large two story house and carport that will definately obsure some of the view from cottage. Next visit we would probably look into Vacationland since it is adjacent to the Tide Pools which offer better snorkeling. Does your company offer any properties there?

I was very happy with the cottage in general and had a delightful few days. However was disappointed by the view that has been blockedby the. Sw construction. It was not pictured do on the website. Still that I could get around.The problem I had was that the nice quiet weekend when I arrived was not so again once the construction crew returned on Monday. The language of these folks was terrible! And of course people coming & going right on the deck side of the cottage. Hard to avoid without having to Leave the property each day. I left early and your agent was most sympathetic offering a discount on my stay and a partial refund. I really appreciate that. She did mention I should have asked to move and I would next time. The cottage itself could use a few upgrades like taking out carpet and using a few throw rugs And the bathroom could use an upgrade but overall a nice little place well equipped kitchen and everything one could use. I would book with you company again for sure. And I did like the area in general . Would Likely stay on the big island again and also your Maui properties as well. Thanks

Time of our Lives!
A guest from Toronto, ON recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in May, 2011
We had such a wonderful stay at the cottage! We absolutely would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to visit the Puna area. We had amazing adventures every day exploring all the local tide pools, swimming areas, markets, and Volcanoes National Park. We woke up every morning to the sound of the ocean, the fragrance of plumeria- surrounded by palm trees, banana trees and papaya trees. Every night, dinner on the deck looking at the ocean, and falling asleep to the sound of coqui frogs and geckkos. Fabulous, fragrant night walks as well. The snorkelling is great! We swam and snorkelled everyday with our five-year-old daughter. There were safe, gentle areas for all of us to swim (she, with her life jacket). The beach access is great- something we found was difficult in much of Big Island.We loved our stay at the cottage so much! Certainly, it was the highlight of our trip. Great location, beautiful time. We hope to come back again!The only thing we disliked were the ants...everywhere! You certainly have to be diligent about wiping up and putting all your food in the fridge immediately. That being said- it was way less buggy than any cottage I have ever been to in Canada. Certainly, way less mosquitos! The cottage had a great 1960's holiday feel that we adored as well. There was music on, and beautiful flowers from the garden when we arrived- as well as a very thorough information booklet that we found very helpful.Thank-you for a wonderful, wonderful stay. Mahalo!

Vacation Bliss at the Cottage
Marci M. from Salt Spring Island, BC recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in January, 2011
I couldn't have imagined a more convenient location to have stationed our Big Island Vacation from. The cottage was just what we needed and it really felt like "home". The fruit trees and exotic flowers on the property were truly magical. Nothing to complain about except we didn't stay long enough!

Wonderful Stay
A guest from El Dorado Hills, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in November, 2010
Our family of four truly enjoyed our stay at The Cottage. The welcome flowers were a wonderful touch and the house windows had been opened and all the fans were turned on. The place was spotless and the fridge had a nice compliment of spices inside. We BBQ'd and enjoyed swimming in Champagne Pond (which is truly amazing). We fell in love with area and we will be back!

Kapoho Beach Lots are a place of simple and quiet pleasures and natural beauty
A guest from Haiku, HI recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in November, 2010
My husband and I truely loved our weekend getaway at The Cottage, it was everything we hoped it to be, quiet, clean, right on the water, simple beauty. We appreciated the fresh fruits and flowers, the Hawaiian music when we walked in. It wasn't pretentious yet there were many thoughtful details such as the first aid kit and emergency flashlights, condiments in the kitchen, beach towels and a cooler. The location was perfect, just as advertised, just a few yards from the water and around the corner from Champagne pond. The neighbors, both visitors and resident's were all friendly. Mahalo for sharing this piece of paradise with us.

5th trip to Kapoho
Julie I. from Bellingham, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in October, 2010
We loved this little cottage and have always loved coming to Kapoho (10 years now) but we noticed some negative changes that have happened and personally were impacted by this. We had our car parked at the cottage and were either out for a walk or swim. The car was unlocked and I had left our binoculars in the middle compartment of the car and some lotion I had bought in the glove box. It wasn't until the next day that we could not find them and it took awhile before we realized that someone had prowled the car while it was at the cottage and taken those things. This put a huge damper effect on the rest of our trip and we realized that Kapoho was no longer the sweet local place that we had come to love.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Hawaii Holiday Vacation Rentals
We are saddened by the recent prowling in Kapoho as well. As we state in our Welcome Letter, there have over the years been a few thefts from our guests. It is very important to lock up your car and the property when you're not around. This is such a sad state of affairs, but if followed, this practice will help keep your vacation a light and enjoyable one. Kapoho is still one of the most magical places I've ever been! Mahalo, Hawaii Holiday Management

Wonderful vacation getaway!
Chris L. from Snow Camp, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in September, 2010
Everything was wonderful. We enjoyed the various shore accesses. We especially enjoyed the Champagne Pond. Pahoa was close enough to be able to eat out-a must for visitors would be Village Cafe in Pahoa-great burgers. We would definitely stay here again. Sure beats a hotel.Only complaint was the itty bitty ants-they got into everything-especially the dirty clothes. We did not leave any food out for them to get into so I guess they had to find something else to get into. Missed having a dryer-had to go to a laudromat to dry the clothes the ants got into.

The Cottage at Kapoho Beach (Bay)
Bruce M. from Cheyenne, WY recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in April, 2010
Very, very nice property (very clean).Would strongly suggest a clothes dryer be installed next to the clothes washer inside the cottage. The property did have a clothes line outside under the roofed porch but given the very high amount of humidity in the air (rain showers, etc) any washed clothes will (and did) NOT dry overnight outside (had to bring them inside and leave underneath the dining table ceiling fan running all night to dry out).

Very few gltiches in this wonderful vacation spot
Barnaby D. from Seattle, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 10 days in November, 2009
We very much enjoyed our stay of 10 nights at the Kapoho Cottage and highly recommend it to a couple or small family. Two minor glitches: First the information provided about several items in the welcome binder was old and innaccurate; it should be reviewed and updated. Second, the bathroom has a first aid kit on prominent display, but when I went to use it for a minor emergency, there was nothing in it but a very few band-aids. I recommend that the kit be checked and stocked on a regular basis.other than that, everything was A+

Romantic cottage and perfect location -- heaven!
Susan G. from Tahoma, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2009
We loved, loved, loved our stay at The Cottage! It's in a friendly, clean gated community and a short walk away from Champagne Pond. Plus, the fantastic snorkeling at Kapoho tidepools is a 5 minute drive away. The cottage is small, but adorable with a tropical color scheme and island-themed furnishings. Note that there is no dishwasher or dryer... I don't mind hanging my clothes on the clothesline but the air is so moist that they don't dry very well. If our stay was longer than three nights, this could have been a problem when we ran out of clean clothes. We ate out in a romantic little Italian restaurant in town (Pahoa) on our last night called Paolo's. We highly recommend it, and we're quite picky since my husband used to be a waiter in a high-end restaurant. They do not have a liquor license, so bring your own wine and they're happy to serve it for you for a nominal ($5) corkage fee. We will definitely be back again, both to The Cottage and to Paolo's!

This may have been corrected, but The Cottage is listed as for 4 persons, and the sofa pull out is more appropriate for children rather than 2 adults. Other than that, the location, condition and ambiance of The Cottage is really nice. There was freshly picked fruit and a daily local newspaper. Kapoho is really a treasure to enjoy.

My wife and I were there in August of 09, and loved the place, I forgot to enter our comments in the guest book in the unit, but I was going to give a 2-thubs up review in it also. If you are looking for a nicely equiped, clean place to get away from it all, be close to the ocean, and warm snorkling ponds, this might be the place for you.

Garden Setting
Linda S. from Orangedale, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2009
Loads of trees and flowers all around helped birds flutter and sing their praises! There was even a little arbor of trees that made a canopy cover. Easy walk to Champagne Pond and University Pond for swimming. The Cottage was a comfortable abode to spend a few days or even a week or two, although access to markets is a little far. Friendly neighbors and staff helped us aclimate to our surroundings. We ate breakfast one morning out on the veranda with a partial view of the ocean. I saw a Northern Cardinal up in a tree, gecko on the outside wall, mongooses sprinting across the roads. The queen-sized bed was nice and comfortable, and in the kitchen we found everything available for our needs. No dryer to accompany the washing machine, but a clothesline under the patio roof dries the clothes in an hour or two. Lots of fans helped keep down the heat. All in all, we had a wonderful time even though it was short.

The Cottage at Kapoho Beach, Pahoa
Krishnan B. from London, does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in December, 2008
This was a nice spacious cottage with good facilities and the housekeeper and owner seemed friendly. It is within a minute of the ocean, in fact you can see the sea from the lanai. You are also within a few minutes walk of a volcanically heated warm pond (Champagne pond) and there are other ponds and snorkelling areas nearby. There are some restaurants in Pahoa, and you are a short drive from the lava flow ocean entry (for now). Negatives were that we didn't find the actual community to have a very friendly feel, unlike most of the Big Island. There were Kapu, Keep Out, Private signs and large fences wherever you looked. In addition there were a lot of ants around the property so you have to be scrupulously clean to avoid being overrun by them. The week we were there it rained constantly but obviously this is down to luck! We found it a nice place to relax, read books, and explore the local sights. If you want to see this area and don't mind the ants I'd recommend the cottage; however if we returned to the Island we would probably miss this region around Pahoa altogether as it seemed less friendly than other parts.

We had a fabulous time at the Cottage. It was just perfect for two and we loved the sound of the sea and frogs at night. Champagne pond and the tide pools were terrific for snorkeling. Recommend the fish market in Kapoho for fresh local catch and poke. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
