Kapoho apartment description

Newer, one bedroom master suite decorated in a cool beachy theme at Kapoho Beach Lots. With probably the most comfortable queen bed you have ever slept in! Futon sofa bed in living room. Soft linens and special towels provided. Listen to the sound of the ocean waves at night lull you to sleep. This is a great getaway for a couple, or a couple with one child. Covered, private patio area just about 100 steps to the bay on a private easement.

Shared laundry room with washer and dryer. Satellite TV and flat screen and free long distance phone to mainland and HI islands. Wireless internet provided. Tropical garden views with palms, hibiscus, plumeria, papaya and banana trees. Lava rock wall on grassy lawn. You may use the 'Champagne Express' golf cart (when available), or the 2 cruizer bikes to ride to Champagne Pond! Snorkel gear and boogie boards, kayak provided.

Coming in late? You can order a Late Night or Breakfast Basket to be ready when you arrive. Also available: Anniversary Basket with champagne or a Surprise Pamper Me Basket, or an On-the-Go picnic basket. Ask for prices.


This is located in the gated community of Kapoho Beach Lots. Snorkel and swim with the great sea turtles in Champagne Pond. The colorful fish and coral in Waiopae tidepools is close by too! View the lava flows at night and visit Volcanoes National Park only 29 miles away. This is a rural area with lush, green foliage. No highrises here! Just gorgeous natural Hawaiian beauty.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: Art and Joanie purchased Kapoho Joes in 2004 and currently live upstairs. They love to share their downstairs one bedroom unit with guests, and say, 'welcome to our hale'.

                  Why the Owner Chose Kapoho:
                  We love the location of this property. It's just a few steps to the bay and is an easy walk to the water. You can hear the waves at night and can see the beautiful stars.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  It's clean and bright! It feels so cozy and has it's own separate patio area.
