This place is heaven on earth!
We absolutely loved staying at this house. The views will wow you everywhere you walk in this house. We decided to hault some of our sightseeing plans for the week just so we could enjoy this house more. There's nothing better than snorkeling everyday in the tidepools right across the street and then soaking in the hot tub afterwards! The coral gardens are amazing and completely out of this world. I have never seen coral in such pristine condition - layer upon layer of coral! We followed their instructions to take the corridor out to the coral gardens about an hour before high tide and were treated to some gorgeous sights out there. My new favorite place to snorkel! I rate it just as high as Captain Cook monument and Honolua Bay! My kids loved spending most of their time in the keiko pool as there were plenty of fish in this pool as well. They loved just floating around. Another favorite activity was feeding the hungry tilapia in the pond all of our leftovers. We did get visited by some of those annoying beetles, but once we learned to keep everything shut at dusk and keep all but one light off, it wasn't a problem. We loved the low-key vibe to this area, not touristy at all. We made sure to stock up on groceries on our way there so we only had to hit the grocery store a couple more times for a few things for dinners. We enjoyed Uncle Roberts, Kehena Black Sand Beach, Ahalanui, Champagne Pond, and biking the chain of craters road to view the lava entry into the ocean. All of it was truly magical!! I wanted to cry when I got out of the tidepools on our last day. I can't wait to come back to this amazing spot!Rachel M.

Swiss Family Robinson!
We felt one with nature at this incredible home! From the open-to-the-views design to the outdoor shower to the hot tub,, the relaxation was sublime! My daughter exclaimed when we walked in, it's like the Swiss family treehouse! We snorkeled each day, hiked in Volcanoes Park, visited the fabulous Uncle Robert's on Wednesday evening, and took peaceful walks around the neighborhood. This house had everything we needed in terms of supplies, snorkel gear and reef shoes. All we needed to bring was our groceries! We spent several nights in Puako, which was lovely too, but we all decided that we enjoyed the "rainy side" even more! We had perfect sunny weather. It only rained overnight once which just enhanced the coziness of the comfy beds! Kathy was wonderful with responding to my questions as we planned our trip. Rent this home! You will be so glad you did:)Cindy J.

We spent a week at Wai Opae tide pools in the Sullivan's home. And what a week it was! There were two of us and we enjoyed the house immensely. We would rise with the sun and watch the pools turn into mirrors, reflecting the clouds above. The early hours, before the onshore breeze became constant and the visitors arrived, were our favorite for snorkling and the hot tub was wonderful to slip into after being in the pools. The house design was perfect for us but I wouldn't recommend it for two couples because it's very open and privacy would be compromised. If you're a family and used to being in each other's business, it would work fine. We also loved the tilapia in the pool behind the home! They are voracious and a very convenient way to dispose of food scraps! The farmers market in the long house on Sunday is bursting with fresh produce, lehua honey, orchids, local eggs, baked goods and lots of aloha. Wow! Mahalo nui loa to Kathleen for making her home available for others to experience!Dolly M.
