Kapoho house description

Kapoho Makai has pristine natural views like no other rentals with over one mile of tidepool views on three sides, and from the dining room, living room and 1 of the bedrooms. A very private location with no neighbors and no houses and no lights in the view when in the house and on the Lanai (there's 1 neighbor but we never saw them more than once in a year)! Experience water on four sides when tides are 3.0 and above. Enjoy sun and moon rises and the refreshing ocean breeze with little or no flying pests. You can leave doors and windows open and not need the ceiling fans. This is the freshest air in the world and a most pleasant location to enjoy the sea and tidepools.

You can literally snorkel from the house in the famous Kapoho tidepool that are at your door step. We are located on the edge of the Tidepool Preserve so fishing is allowed to the east and daily locals try with nets and spears with occasional success. The preserve offers entertaining vistas both below and above the water.


Location Information: A five minute drive will take you to Ahalnui Beach Park with its amazing 90+ degree geothermally-heated tide-pool. This is a gorgeous place for the whole family. You are only 15 minutes to unique Pahoa town, which is a step back in time. You will find many very good restaurants to choose from and a ''Real Hawaiian'' atmosphere! You will love this place. We will provide a 'Welcome Letter' once you book so you could have very detailed info of the area as of what to do to have the most fun.

Additional Details for the Rental: Lanai: Great for dining, cocktail and wine happy hours, reading, or just hanging out there to enjoy the Pacific ocean view, sea breeze, or maybe whale watching if you are lucky. Broadband Internet: You may either go wireless, or using the cable modem. Remember to bring your own lap top if you have to work some during your stay; otherwise a smart phone is perfect since most major cellular carriers have connections there. Kid Friendly: The tide pools downstairs are kids' snorkeling paradise! they are not just for 'big kids'! One of the best snorkeling areas among all the Hawaiian islands since it's been the marine conservation area since 1960s.

The Unique Benefits at this House: The Pacific Ocean is right in front of the house, between you and the Pacific, there're the tide pools where you and your children can swim and snorkel in your backyard any time during the day, talk with the fish, swim with the turtle, it's heaven. We found this area is the best of Hawaii, unlike most everywhere else with sandy beach and resort one after another, this is the real and original Hawaii.

                              About the owner: We love the real Hawaiiana, that's why we purchased our home here and turned it into a lovely and wonderful vacation rental home, so more people could enjoy the nice and unique setting of the house. With our own 30 year home furnishing business experiences, the house is very nicely furnished and decorated, yet comfortable for any age group of folks to have a great vacation and enjoy the Hawaiiana and aloha. And we are glad we could be able to share our home with folks from everywhere of the world. We found this area is the best of Hawaii, unlike most everywhere else with sandy beach and resort one after another, this is the real and original Hawaii.

                              Why the Owner Chose Kapoho:
                              We found this area is the best of Hawaii, unlike most everywhere else with sandy beach and resort one after another, this is the real and original Hawaii.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              The Pacific ocean is right in front of the house, between you and the Pacific, it's the tide pool where you and your children can swim and snorkel any time during the day, talk with the fish, swim with the turtle, it's heaven.
