Please read what our past guests have to say about their stays at Kilauea Coconut House:


"This is a great house!!!  I found it on the Internet.  The ad said 3 bedrooms, but there are 4 bedrooms!!!  Everything we could ever need is already here and available for's a vacationer's dream.  I am so impressed with all the thoughtfulness that has gone into making this house "user friendly".  I'll come again and I'll send others, too.  Nice neighborhood."  A recent guest

 "My family was extremely happy with the house and all of its amenities.  We look forward to our next trip to Kauai and hope that your house is available the next time we vacation to the Garden Isle.  Much thanks to you for all of your assistance and we can only hope all our vacations include such nice accommodations."  Aaron A., Covina, California

"To me, the kitchen was fantastic...and we cooked and cooked!  I took advantage of the rice cooker, food processor, and of course, the coffee maker, and so many things that were made available to the guests; it was really like working in my own kitchen except this was so much more spacious.  ...I also used the oven to roast, bake, and used the grill to make pizza!  I thoroughly enjoyed your kitchen.  Another feature of the house enjoyed by all was the jacuzzi.  My dad went right in the first day he was there and others also had a lot of fun relaxing in the jacuzzi after snorkeling in nearby waters.  It's a fantastic addition to the house.  (My husband) is even thinking of getting one in our recently purchased weekend house in Long Island.  Having it indoors is a really good idea."  Naoko T., New York City, New York

"The house was fantastic.  All of us were comfortable and enjoyed the grill, canoe and boogie boards on the beautiful nearby beaches and river.  We cannot wait to return."  Mike G., Louisville, Kentucky

"Jean and I and our four grandchildren enjoyed our recent stay at your house immensely!  It is a most wonderful house and we appreciated all of your exquisite and thorough touches.  After we had been there a couple days, we asked `our' 8-year old (the youngest of the kids) what he had liked best about our trip to Hawaii so far (we had started this trip on Oahu, where we had spent 4 nights, been to the Polynesian Culture Center and to the ship tours at Pearl Harbor & snorkeled with sea turtles) and his answer was, "This house."  Wow!  ..Thanks again for the pleasure of being able to use your beautiful and peaceful home.  It made all the difference!! We also appreciated the copious information about local flora and places to visit.  We especially enjoyed Rock Quarry Beach and Tunnels!!  If you hadn't tipped us off about them, we would have never known, so thank you ever so much!"  Jean & David D., McKinleyville, California

"Your house was very comfortable, a nice place to come home to after our busy days.  Went on one canoe ride which was really fun, barbequed fresh fish at the house.  Thanks for all your tips, beach equipment, etc. Porta crib and stroller were perfect.  Hope to come back again."  Courtney & Steve J., San Anselmo, California  (Courtney and Steve did return!)

"The house was fabulous.  We went there with my family (mom, dad, 82 year old aunt, my son-14, my brother and his wife) for my dad's 70th B-Day.  My dad was born and raised in Honolulu.  We went to Oahu for 4 days after we left Kauai.  (Dad) says he will never go to any other island again, but Kauai.  He loved it there.  We ate avocados off your tree.  They were wonderful.  We would like to stay in your house again.  My parents have already decided where to spend my mom's 70th B-day...Thanks again for providing such a great place.  You go beyond expectations.  It's provided my family with great memories."  Jean P., Rio Linda, California

"We enjoyed your spacious house on Kauai. The kitchen facility and recreation equipment were great!  We all enjoyed the decor and how well-maintained everything is!  We miss the geckos' nightly chirping."  Linda & Jim G. and Family, Auburn, California

"It was a wonderful house and met our needs and then some.  It was so nice having four teenagers and still felt like we had enough space.  Thanks for the hints in the blue file folder.  It helped us organize our time."  Brian and Joy J., Auburn, California

"We enjoyed your house.  It was so nice not to have to bring towels, buy coolers, etc.  We had our 2 1/2 year old and our friends had a 5 1/2 year old.  They enjoyed both VCRs.  I think it made them feel "big" to be up in the loft watching a movie.  We used your blue file box for some good beaches.  Your house was in a perfect location.  We love that side of the island and it has many wonderful beaches!  Thanks for all the amenities.  We'll tell our friends about you."  Lisa and Ed S., Folsom, California

"The house was great.  It had everything we needed and the kids were thrilled to have the T.V. and Nintendo in their loft bedroom."  Carol and Gary M. of Westbury, New York

"Our family vacation was a great success, thanks in a large part to your wonderful house.  Ten of us stayed there, six adults and four children-ages 7, 10, 11, and 12.  It was a perfect place for children-the games were much appreciated by all, as well as the beach equipment.  The kitchen was a real joy to cook in and the staples, etc. were most appreciated.  Your descriptions of all things about the island-beaches, groceries, farmers' markets, were invaluable, as was your card file."  Lydia W. of Palo Alto, California

"Your house and file cards, maps, kitchen, beach supplies, etc. were way more than we expected.  No time was wasted looking for places to go, thanks to you...sharing all your family's favorite beaches, markets, coupons for free mugs at Hilo Hattie's...Everyone had a special time-memories we will never forget.  Hope to go back real soon!"  Jodi M. of Martinez, California

"My mother put it so well recently-she is homesick for your house on Kauai.  We loved the home and were so pleased when we arrived.  What a wonderful vacation we had, primarily because your house was so perfect...all the special touches.  I wish you could have heard all the oohs and ahs when we pulled in and the wow!!! when we walked in."  Mark and Allison P. of  Shingle Springs, California

"Your home was even nicer than expected, so roomy that I could swing my golf club without hitting anything!"  Jack D. of Belvedere, California

"Thank you very much indeed for the great pleasure your house in Kilauea gave us all.  Everything in your house was so well organized, all our needs were met and we particularly made good use of all your information and suggestions in the gray file box.  We really had the holiday of a lifetime."  Elizabeth H. of San Francisco
