vacation rental description


Located in a Marine Conservation District, the sunny micro climate
bathes Lagoon Shangrila in watercolors of a tropical paradise
complete with vibrant colored fish and magnificent coral formations.
Here you can harvest your own coconuts, swim in your own private
warm swimming pond heated by the volcano, stroll the black or green
sand beach, take a steam bath in a volcano vent, hike in the tall
majestic rain forest, swim with schools of tropical fish, relax in the
private Hot Tub under the stars, pick passion fruit and wild flowers
on your morning walk.

As the lava flowed down the volcano, it created pockets now filled
with sea water which dot the coastline and created the pond at
Shangrila. Just six feet from the Dining Room, the warm pond awaits
filled daily with seawater as the tides rise and fall - light the
Tiki Torches and enjoy your own Mini Resort with covered dining
under the palm trees.

This just finished 3 bedroom, 3 bath home with Italian tile
throughout - New Designer Kitchen with Chocolate Cherry Cabinets and
Designer Appliances - Wireless High Speed Internet/mini office -
Designer Tiled Baths and Showers - Natural Bamboo Ceilings -
completely gated and surrounded by a Natural Bamboo fence - You will
love this relaxing get-away in A REAL HAWAIIAN PARADISE ....

Kitchen is stocked with spices, cooking oils, paper goods,
condiments, all you need are your favorite foods and drinks.
Shopping just a 15 minute drive - and old Pahoa Town circa 1958 will
entertain you with Italian, Mexican, Pizza, Thai and local cuisines.
Live Music on weekends. Picture yourself in Thailand, the Philippines
while you shop the very Local Farmers Markets to learn about unusual
fruits and veggies sold by area families.

Lagoon Shangrila is an Adventure in Paradise! Live the dream!

traveler reviews for this hilo house rental

Great house at Kopoho tide pools area

Review submitted: December 11, 2013   Date of arrival: December 6, 2013

This was one of my first rentals with VRBO and was very pleased. House is spacious 3 bedroom/3 bath. Kitchen was well appointed which is helpful since you will want to cook rather than drive to town for food. Loved the lagoon setting and the hot tub outside that is quite private. Tide pools are maybe a 5 minute walk and lovely. We liked high tide for snorkelling best. Loved also the outdoor shower for after a run. They have a nice set of things for use such as snorkel gear, boogie board, kid things in the bin outside. The owner even had a nice little welcome basket of goodies for us which was a nice touch.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Mahalo Jim,

So rewarding to hear that you had a a great stay at Lagoon Shangrila. We strive to make sure our guests have a very memorable experience.

Hope to see you on a return visit.

Mele Kalikimaka & Hau’oli Makahiki Hou! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Great Family Vacation House!

Review submitted: April 23, 2013   Date of arrival: April 8, 2013

"Perfect!" was the first word from the adults when we arrived at Lagoon Shangrila. The four children in our party of eight were ecstatic with delight and could not get into their swimsuits fast enough. Our son and his wife and children have lived on Oahu for two and a half years now but have not had the opportunity to travel to the other Hawaiian Islands. They have all learned to surf and snorkle and were ready for new places to explore. We wanted a place to relax and play without long waits at restaurants or endless hours in the rental van. The lava pool was a huge hit with the 2,8,11 and 12 year olds. After the long trip from Arkansas the grandparents went straight to the hottub. It was ready on arrival! As described, the house was well stocked for every need --- Beach towels, bicycles, spices and condiments, toiletries, etc. The short walk to the beach front revealed coral of every color and sealife not seen in the waters around Oahu. Kids and adults scrambled over the rocks like crabs and dipped into the water for a new experience each time. We traveled through the rain forest, walked into the lava fields at night to view the volcanos fiery blast and took a helicopter ride over the volcanos and waterfalls. So much to see and do------ We want to do it all again. Back at Shangrila, the little ones chased the geckoes, looked for the frogs in the beautiful landscaping and cracked fresh coconuts that had fallen from the trees. In Hilo, we found the fresh fish market and locally grown fruits and vegetables to prepare on the outside grill and enjoy lava poolside. We did enjoy one evening meal at Ponds Restaurant and a late breakfast at Ken's Pancakes. Inside, we found games to play and plenty of room everywhere to sit and talk. As grandparents we are use to seeing a few tears from the kids when it is time for us to return home. This time we all cried because we didn't want to leave Shangrila. How we envied the next guests at "our house"! Thank you for allowing us to share.
Re: Customer Service -- We awoke one morning to no hot water but a phone call directed us to the electric meter. (The house, apparently, uses solar heat for the water supply and it had been cloudy the day before.) A flip of the switch and we soon had hot water for all eight of us.

A dream come true vacation.

Review submitted: January 21, 2013   Date of arrival: January 4, 2013

I just wanted to first start off by saying thank you to Trisha and Sterling for sharing this amazing property with us.. Second, I read how people were saying not to stay such a long time on the east side of the island. ( 9 nights) Well, I am so glad we did. If we could, it would have been longer. We loved the area so much from the remoteness of it, yet, close to everything we needed. We did a trip to kona and with the new saddle road.. it wasnt bad at all. A beautiful drive. We did not like Kona as much as Pahoa side. The tide pools down the road were our favorite. 2 min walk away. We spent like 400 dollars on meat to bar b que and did that everyday. The house had everything and more! Sleeping in the bed at night was heaven listening to the sounds of the rain forest. We didnt bring snorkel stuff but they had everything from that to shoes to floats. The hot tub was on the top of our list too.. Everyday we went in it.. every night.. SO PEACEFUL AND PRIVATE.. Sterling was able to help us with everything that came up. We are planning to move to this side of the island and will be using this place as a base camp when we look for properties when we come back. Thank you so much you guys for everything.. We want to come back.. now.
