GUESTS RAVE ABOUT SHANGRI-LA! Jeff from Michigan wrote this in the guestbook and loved Shangri-La so much he's available for prospective renters to contact:
'Our stay at Shangri-La was a vacation of a life time!! The no hassel environment was just perfect. I don't think I can stay at a hotel ever again. We loved taking the early morning swims in our private naturally heated lagoon. The privacy of the estate is a wonderful freeing feeling. You get the sensation that you are in your own exclusive piece of heaven. The proximity of the tidal pools was so close that we could go every day. Their beauty is spectacular, words can't describe the experience. I thnk only a painters brush could do it justice. Ever since we returned home I can only think, when can I go back for another trip to the Big Island and stay at Shangri-La. Loved it, loved it, loved it!!!'

Looking at the pictures again after being back in Colorado really stirs great memories. It was just my husband and myself and we wanted peace and solitude. We didn't spend much time away from the home, we ignored almost every tourist attraction as we were in paradise and never wanted to leave. The linens were very nice, we loved the outdoor shower and bath, and the landscaping... We can't say enough about the landscaping. We enjoyed all the details including the small shells in the walking paths and the orchids wrapping our linens on arrival. We loved the nightly rains and all the humidity. My skin never felt so nice. We loved the outdoor lighting at night and enjoyed watching the palm fronds wave in the breezes. We also loved the orchids growing on the trees. The flowers were amazing.
The pond was delightful for swimming and we grew to love the fish and the geckos. It was slightly inconvenient that our Verizon cell service didn't work at the home and yet, what a gift! By the time we left, we could care less that we had no cell service! It took Shangri-la to remind us that constant connection isn't THAT necessary and that we are humans and do not need our dog leashes (cell phones) on every adventure. Sometimes it is best to run free!
