“Relaxing by the pond”
Loved our stay. Had all the amenities! Thanks we had a blast for our weekend. We really enjoyed the pond.
White Orchid is a lovely property. The house is open & spacious, tastefully decorated & well-appointed. It was more private than I expected, within the viewshed of only the one house on the other side of the pond, but the landscaping provided nice privacy without feeling hemmed in. We didn't use the pond; there were noodles & rafts, etc., but it was so dark all we could see were decaying palm fronds & coconuts, so it just wasn't inviting. But the ocean tidal pools were just a few minutes walk & they were wonderful. Only half a day of rain ~ the weather was terrific. It was a lovely house & a great experience! Mahalo!
We had a very good time here. Would stay here again but only if the matress in the smaller bed room is replaced.
“Beautifully furnished, bright, comfortable house”
We spent a great week in White Orchid despite a lot of rain (which is not unusual there in December). Swimming in the natural pond in the backyard was a unique experience that we loved. The house and especially the backyard/porch is not very private but given time the growing palms and other vegetation should improve that. The house needs a new and better front door key, the present one does not fit the front lock, making it quite difficult to unlock the door every time.
“Couldn't have been better”
A really great property in a quite remote community in Kapoho (it almost feels like you're at the end of the world). There was not much to criticise about the property. It's spacious, clean and well maintained, has good kitchen facilities, nice outdoor showers and tasteful quite contemporary decor. We had an excellent experience there and would highly recommend it to other travellers.
“Erie, CO Family”
The house worked great for our family. The only downside was the birds outside at night were pretty loud, but we had earplugs. So, I would just suggest bringing earplugs because you will want the windows open at night. The location was good. The restaurants in town of Pahoa were great. Loved being near the tidepools.
Response from the manager Thanks for your nice review! Those night sounds are actually the Coqui tree frogs that sing their chorus after sunset. Mahalo, Hawaii Holiday Management
“Lovely Rental - Near Unique Tidal Pools”
The layout and amenities of the house are great and we loved the outside showers! The house is beautifully decorated with various "extras" available for guests' use (snorkel masks, water shoes, a small cooler, beach towels, etc). This made it so easy to walk the "secret path" to the tidal pools for a truly unique snorkeling experience -- definitely on par with Molokini (off Maui) and even Hanauma Bay in Oahu, so we were pleasantly surprised. We also made good use of the house's reference book with laminated lists for restaurants and area attractions. We carried it with us as we drove around so we had the info readily available. Please relay to the owners to fix the following: 1) The mattress and/or bed in the second bedroom needs to be replaced asap -- it has a horrible sag / slant in it on one side which made sleeping quite uncomfortable. I noticed in the comment book on site that others have complained about this mattress since at least May 2010, but maybe the comments are not really read by the owners? Anyhow, that is why I am putting the comment here -- so it has a better chance of being fixed for future guests. 2) The kitchen microwave needs to be replaced (does not work at all; it comes up with an error code such as "H98"). 3) The coffee maker switch is faulty -- sometimes it works, sometimes not -- so the coffee maker should be replaced. Despite these 3 things above, the house really was lovely and I still highly recommend it. I only put those three items in the comments to ensure that someone (the management company, owners or whomever) will see them sooner and hopefully correct them for the enjoyment of future guests (you can't fix something if you don't know about it, right?). Anyway, we hope to be back soon! Maholo!!
Response from the manager Aloha all: the mattress in question was replaced in June 2011. All small appliances are in excellent working condition too. ~ Hawaii Holiday Management.
“White Orchid Beauty”
If you're looking for convenient access to snorkeling, stargazing and exploring tide pools while staying in a beautifully landscaped property, look no further. The tide pools are a short walk away or there are places to park if you prefer and the fish and coral are very interesting. Millionaire Pond is a mix of salt and geothermal water about a mile away. We enjoyed the drive to the end of Highway 137 where there was a fun restaurant, hiking and black beaches. Pahoa is a nice town with many restaurants choices and shopping. Downtown Hilo has a great Farmers Market especially on Wednesday and Saturdays where you'll find all kinds of things and food to buy. Downtown is also a great place to visit museums, eat and shop. One can also visit Hilo Hatties store, the Botanical Garden and the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory. Enough about all there is to do on this side of the Island. You will definitely enjoy your stay at this beautiful home. We loved using the private outdoor showers………very refreshing! We would love staying at this rental again. The property needed a thorough spring cleaning from ceiling, light fixtures down.
Response from the manager We're so glad you enjoyed our unique Hawaiian location! All of our properties get a deep cleaning in April/May after the VERY busy winter season. Mahalo, Hawaii Holiday Management
“A piece of Eden....”
A piece of Eden. Wonderful accomodations off the beaten path. Pick a fresh lemon for your personally bbq'd ahi steak. Take a moonlit drive to see the glow of the molton lava from Kiluhea. Find fresh produce and gourmet natural foods in the small villages. Read a good book while watching the geckos sun on the patio and the fish swim in the clear pool. Ideal for the adventerous at heart and those looking to escape to the "real" Hawaii.
Rented place for visiting relatives,they loved it.we live here and are want to come stay here. Love the Decor,close to tide pools,quiet and peaceful. Great jacuzzi tub
