“Great Location”

Reviewed 20 Mar 2012

great location and beautiful grounds. i enjoyed the temperpedic bed and the balcony off the bedroom.

“Beautiful home on the Big Island's scenic side”

Reviewed 5 Feb 2012

We enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Orchid Elua. The layout of the home was perfect for our group of five. The screened-in patio provided a comfortable space for our group dinners while the four bedrooms afforded each of us privacy -- and our own bathrooms! We especially enjoyed sipping morning coffee on our second-story lanai, gazing at the lush greenery all around us, trying to spot mongooses scurrying through the ferns. One of the few negatives of staying at such a lush, natural area is the bugs. Several seemed to find their way to the roof of our bedroom and bathroom. And while we enjoyed looking at the private tidepool in the backyard, we opted to swim in the much larger tidepool area just a short walk away. The water there was clear, warm and provided excellent snorkeling. And the coqui? They actually reminded me of crickets. Overall, our entire familly enjoyed Orchid Elua and the adventures on the Big Island's scenic side.

“Photo may be misleading but.....”

Reviewed 27 Dec 2011

Our family had a wonderful time staying at Orchid Elua Property. The location was perfect with plenty places to explore with children. The stores were within driving distance and not too long. Plenty of snorkeling spots for the kids that are safe from the surf break. Negative experience was having the smoke detector sound off at 1AM and it could not be turned off since it was connected to the house. Thanks to maintenance for taking care of that. The frogs whistled a bunch but did not bother us one bit. Don't be surprised as I was about the geckos that hide and come out to greet you. At first it startled me but they are considered good luck in the house. They were nice to stay away from me. The picture in the online photo is misleading since the house pond/lagoon like pool shown there is much smaller on our side. We did not snorkel or swim in the pond since the tide pools were more inviting. Kitchen is small but had most of the things needed. The frying pans could be replaced with nicer ones and it would be nice to have a little breakfast nook table/chairs for children to sit and have breakfast instead of outside during the winter months. The house is filled with all the amenities needed and laundry area for clothes. We discovered that we packed way too much clothes. Overall, with a few minor things, this place is a great place for a family to snorkel, explore with all the amenities of home. Aloha and Mahalo!

“Comfort at the Tide Pools”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2011

The house is lovely. We were two couples and one child so we had our pick of bedrooms. I couldn't get used to sheer curtains in the bathroom that overlooked the street, so we put towels up. The tide pools are a 5 minute walk away but plan to stay there all day they are so fun. Good info at the house regarding local shops/gas/sights, but beware of old guide books. Plan to be flexible. The kitchen had everything we needed. The tide pond in the back of the house was okay, we enjoyed swimming in it the 1st day, but overshadowed by the actual tide pools. We'd be happy to return especially if there were real curtains.

“Absolutely beautiful pair of houses!!”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2011

My family rented both houses on this property and they are both very nice with many ammenities. Little things like having loaner masks and snorkels made things fun for kids and adults alike. The only minor thing that could have been improved was that floors were nicely swept but could have used a thorough mopping before we rented. We didn't wear shoes in the house and quickly noticed the condition of the floor on our feet.

“Gorgeous Home Great R&R”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2011

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely home in a very quaint tropical neighborhood. It was very quiet. In the evening I loved the sound of the crickets, frogs and geekos and tropical breeze rustling in the trees. The beds were very comfortable. Typically I am a light sleeper but here I slept like a baby. I highly recommend this beautiful home if you are looking to be close to nature and for a truly relaxing environment. You are close to beautiful beaches, the ocean, and tide pools. Pahoa is the closest town with some great restaurants. It is about a 15 minute drive and from Kapoho to Pahoa it is just a nice tropical drive. Lovely!

“Ching L.'s review of A Tide Pool Outside Your Door”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2011

Had a wonderful time. It was like being in the garden of Eden.

“It was very expensive with all the add on's.”

Reviewed 20 Jun 2011

The kitchen lacked serving dishes. It's a one person kitchen! The teflon pans need to be replaced. We did enjoy our short stay and realize that its hard to keep a rental in top condition.

Response from the manager We appreciate the feedback regarding the pans. This reservation was for one night-- we explained up front we don't normally confirm stays for a single night because of the required other charges which makes it not usually make financial sense, but this guest pleaded and insisted so we allowed it.

“True Paradise!”

Reviewed 10 May 2011

This property never disappoints! It was perfect for our group, and we look forward to coming back!!

“Beyond Expectation”

Reviewed 18 Apr 2011

The property was so beautiful, inside and out. The foliage was spectacular and provided privacy from the adjoining neighbors. The fish in the tide pool were not colorful but it was nice taking a dip in the private tide pool. Our 2 sons enjoyed having their own bedroom and separate bathroom as well! Su from management was available when we had a problem with the router and also before our arrival answering all our questions. If you have concerns about the cleanliness of the tide pools roused by another reviewer please see this link and you will find they are tested and totally safe and clean.
