“Tidal pools, surfing nearby, outdoor places.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2013 for a stay in October 2012

This was our first anniversary trip and we included both of our Mothers. We flew into Kona and drove over. This was a wonderful place for us - we snorkeled the tidal pools almost every day. You wouldn't believe how many tropical fish are there! We were also a short drive from a good surfing beach for my husband. We stayed for a week and many of the places we wanted to visit required a bit too much driving. But we will always remember this lovely house on the beautiful island!

“The Best !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We had a wonderful stay here in June. The weather was fabulous. It is a little out of town but the drive is beautiful. A Car is a must. The tide pools were spectacular to snorkel in. The House is "The Best". Everything you could possible need or want was provided. Our only regret was that we didn't stay here longer. We went with friends who had children, ages 12 and 9. They loved the tide pool on the property, and the surroundings are glorious. No hassles, no problems and no worries. Loved it. Food in Pahoa was good and the shaved ice at Wilson's in Hilo is a must.

“Paradise on a very Unique Island”

This house was our 2nd stop on a 4 week holiday to 3 islands, and we were so glad we made the choice to stay on the Hilo side at Lagoon Shangrila! The house is spacious (we were 4 adults and 4 kids), tidy, and had absolutely everything you needed. It is exactly as pictured, no surprises! The pond was a huge hit, and the hot tub was perfect after a long day hiking at the Volcano! The tide pools just down the road were spectacular! We are very well travelled in both the Caribbean and the Mayan Riviera/Mexico, and this is some of the best snorkelling we have ever done, hands down. It was wonderful to walk down the street, enjoy the tide pools, and then throw something on the grill for dinner while enjoying the peaceful yard. Trisha and Sterling have done a terrific job of making this property private and luxurious. It is in the rain forest, so expect showers. During our 9 day stay it rained mostly at night or in the early morning, the days were sunny and warm. There is a grocery store in Pahoa town about 15 min away with everything you need. It is a 45 min. drive to Hilo, but it was perfect for us to feel like we were getting away after having been in Honolulu. The culture here is very laid back and welcoming and we enjoyed chatting with the locals to find out about the hidden gems near by (the hidden black sand beach several miles down hwy 137 was one of the best places we visited during our 4 weeks in Hawaii) Take time to stop in at the Hot Pools along this road too. Do drive to the end of the road where the lava flowed across it and there is a new beach forming beyond the lava field. Do take at least a full day (or 2) in Volcanoes National Park and walk through the Kilauea Iki Caldera (4 miles), it is worth every step. Do go back to the Park at night to see the Caldera glowing orange, and the millions of stars in the sky (your park pass is good for 7 days) Do walk to the very end of the Thurston Lava Tubes-take a flashlight or you can't do this. Do drive the Chain of Craters Road right to the Sea Arch, the next big lava flow may destroy this area! Do take a helicopter tour over the active vent, a trip highlight! Do hike to Akaka Falls, eat at Cafe Pesto and Ponds in Hilo, visit the Japanese Gardens and Coconut Island on Banyan Drive. Do go to Big Island Candies and try everything! The Chocolate dipped Mac Nut Shortbread is to die for--we brought several boxes home with us! Enjoy the tropical rainforest, I do miss the beauty of it. We drove the south route on Hwy 11 to Kona for my husband to do the Manta Ray night dive-excellent, and the north route on Hwy 19 back to Hilo, and are glad we chose Hilo as our location, it was just a great place to stay to enjoy all that this island has to offer while feeling relaxed and refreshed as we moved on to Maui. Thanks Trisha & Sterling!
