“Private paradise, Tidepool Lagoon like snorkeling in an aquarium”
Reviewed 29 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013
people found this review helpful

Incredibly unique rental. The property meanders around a ninety degree tidewater lagoon with beautiful tropical fish aplenty. The sunniest area on the easternmost part of hawaii, gentle rainfall at night and an occasional 5 minute shower makes this place so green and gorgeous. The sun shining on the water viewed from under the pond shows another world, just breathtaking. A five minute walk to Champagne ponds but the snorkeling at Shangri-La was all we needed. Everywhere you look there is beautiful tropical plants, flowers, palms, etc. Dining outside under the covered porch from coffee in the morning to dinner as you can only do in Hawaii is just so lovely. Charlie the koi takes the fish food from your hand and you can even pet him. The baby tilapia Give you a fish pedicure if you sit quietly with your feet in the water. You are encouraged to catch the Tilapia and filet your own dinner if you are so inclined. Gorgeous outdoor shower, sauna, swing by the guest house for private space to read, hammock on an island, it's just fantastic all around. They have all the gear you need for snorkeling, well supplied kitchen, too. It is just an amazing place.
