Kapaau house description

Big Island Vacation Houses presents: The Mango House. This lush, tropical oasis is located in beautiful North Kohala and offers an immersive Hawaiian experience removed from the tourist traps and bustle of other locales. In fact, it may have you believing you're a local.

A large variety of lush flora envelopes and divides the property, including hibiscus, birds of paradise, orchids, ferns, palms, an awesome banyan tree and fruit trees offering the freshest mangoes, papayas, bananas, and avocados that are yours for the picking. Savor oceanic, pastoral or jungle views as tropical birds sing, geckos chatter, the island breezes caress the trees, and the resonance of the tide rhythmically whispering in the distance.

The Mango House is a luxuriously designed 2,000 square foot house. The king sized master bedroom on the first floor accesses the 1,000 ft. of covered lanai decks. The upstairs loft bedroom with another king bed as well as a trundle bed, has its own half bathroom and upper level private lanai with spectacular ocean views. There is a fantastic fully equipped kitchen with state of the art appliances and an amazing 6ft Koa slab island. The master bath has a vessel sink and bali stone shower with soaking tub. There is also a separate private outdoor Bali Stone shower that is great after a day at the beach.

You are a short drive from the historic town of Kapaau, home of the original King Kamehameha I Statue. The charming downtown area has great art galleries and several wonderful restaurant as well as Kamehameha Park which has great tennis courts, a public swimming pool, a skate park and wonderful children playground. There is even a small public golf course you can play on for a nominal fee. A short drive in the other direction leads you Keokea Beach Park, which is a great spot for a picnic. Continue on and you come to the end of the road at the stunning Pololu Valley Overlook where you can enjoy a spectacular view hike down to the valley.

A few minutes past Kapaau is the colorful town of Hawi, known as North Kohala’s biggest little town. It is home to a weekly farmer’s market that we think is one of the best on the island. Be sure to sample local varieties of popular fruits, like apple bananas, strawberry papaya and in season, super sweet white pineapple! Hawi is also the bicycle turnaround for the annual Ironman World Championship held every October and has a great selection of unique shops and tasty restaurants. The world famous Bamboo Restaurant is consistently voted one of the best restaurants on the island with a great lineup of live music featuring award winning Hawaiian musicians. There are also wonderful alternative healing practices located here, with massage therapists , acupuncture specialists, naturopaths, herbalists, and a variety of yoga styles represented.

North Kohala is perfectly located to take advantage of many fun activities including scenic coastal rides on horseback or ATVs, the Kohala Zipline, Kayaking the Kohala Ditch and hiking trails galore. Head up the mountain road to Waimea and experience one of the best scenic drives in the US, with incredible views of Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea and its observatories and a birds eye view of South Kohala with all its resorts and white sand beaches. The beaches in Kohala are the best on the island, including world famous Hapuna beach (Conde Nast rated it one of the top 10 beaches in the world), scenic Mauna Kea Beach, child friendly Spencer Beach Park and local favorite Beach 69.

Head down the coast towards South Kohala and you’ll discover many historical sites and parks along the coastline to enjoy. Lapakahi State Park is the site of an ancient fishing village and a great spot for snorkeling and whale watching. The harbor town of Kawaihae is home to a variety of tour companies offering scuba, snorkeling and whale watching tours. There’s also a nice selection of shops and galleries along with great dinning and music at the Blue Dolphin Restaurant or popular Café Pesto.

                            This house is located on the north of the Big Island in a tropical rainforest. The area is rural and for that reason considerably more interesting than the other more populated touristic areas. The downside of this is you must drive everywhere and there are no good beaches very close. The closest town is Kapaau about 5 miles away. The house is well designed and built. The outdoor shower is absolutely devine! The beds are comfortable. The kitchen and other appliances are modern and worked well. Nevertheless, we had the felling that things were a little run down. The screens on the doors were flopping around. The porch furniture was scruffy. This is probably due to the fact that it is quite wet here and it was difficult to dry things out. The ocean views are very minimal although one does here the surf at night. We were two couples, and there were not enough plates or utensils so that one had to wash up after each meal. There were only 3 chairs at the dining room table. It is an overstatement to say there are 2 bedrooms when the second one is an open loft. The second bathroom is tiny and does not include a shower or bath. Given the immense please of the outdoor shower, this is a minor annoyance. The sound proofing is nonexistent as far as we could tell. This place has lots of unrealized potential. As it is, it is more a camp than a house. All in all, we enjoyed the place and especially the area, but would not likely come back here. An important reason for that is the amount of driving one does from here. Also, we visited in the winter, and experienced some stormy weather, so we might have a different view in the summer and fall.

                            Owner response: We appreciate the feedback on our property as, while we have local management and family, alas, we are currently located on the mainland. For that reason we provide both a local contact phone number of our capable manager as well as the owners phone number to all guests. Breakage is inevitable and we are understanding with guests on this note (I have four children after all!). The screen has been repaired and the missing dining room chair is back from the wood shop in Kona, both casualties of prior guests. These things happen. We imagined one of the additional teak chairs on the deck as a substitute in the meantime as well as the adjacent koa slab island with three stools. Plates and glasses have been located, and we apologize if there was a management oversight there. The pictures of the house do not overstate it's beauty: koa slab, ipe flooring, monkey pod custom stair case, mango trim, indoor and outdoor bali stone shower. The house has a cathedral ceiling, so it is true that there is no soundproofing for the loft, but we will have to agree to disagree on the "camp" reference as the photos of the house clearly illustrate it's warmth and beauty. We provide ample beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkeling gear for the convenience of our guests. As far as the location, it is a 25 minute whale-watch of a drive along the North Kohala coast (no Kona vog or traffic!!) to the nicest beaches on the island: Hapuna, 69, Maumae, Mauna Kea; 2 miles from the spectacular Pololu Valley and the best hikes and horseback riding on the island (the historic Bond Estate, Opolu airport, Mahukona, Kapaa, Lapakahi State Park). That said, I do apologize for any shortcomings. Mahalo

                            We went to Mango House for our honeymoon and it was so quiet and private. The property was beautiful with fruit trees and the sounds of birds and a nearby stream filling the air. We would recommend this rental to anyone looking to relax and get a taste of the local culture. The small towns nearby had good food, friendly locals and good shopping. There is a valley very close that is very worth the mile hike downhill. The beaches are a short drive away and the views en route are breathtaking. We can't wait to go back!

                            The Mango House was a little piece of paradise. When you first pull up, off a little dirt road you come to a sign that says Aloha with your name under it. Then you walk up a set of majestic stairs to a beautiful wrap around porch/lanai. When we entered the home we were taken back by the beautiful wood work throughout. The kitchen was stunning with amazing views of the backyard and all the coconut trees. The outdoor shower was one of our favorite spaces. Loved coming home after a day at Kua Bay and taking a shower outside with our little friends the geckos. The kids ( 2 and 5 ) loved it too! The breezes at night were perfect for a comfortable sleep with the distant sounds of the waves crashing on the beach. The farmer's market at Hawi (about 5 miles down the road) was one of our favorites. Everything was very accessible. Grocery store, beaches, restaurants, etc. The town of Hawi and Kapaau both have wonderful downtowns with fun stores and great food. We highly recommend staying at this little piece of paradise.

                            I am so happy that we decided to stay on this side of the Big Island. It is so lush and green. The Mango House is just like it looks in the pictures, only better! It is extremely private. If you are looking for quiet this is the place. We ate dinner in practically every night thanks to a big open kitchen with everything you need, as well as a charcoal grill where we grilled local fresh fish and island grass fed beef. The outdoor shower is fantastic, so nice that we never even used the one inside. There were just two of us staying at the house, although it can sleep more. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place!

                            Our family of four, including two teenagers, stayed here for five tranquil nights. We enjoyed waking up to the sound of birds, watching the geckos from the lanai and using the outdoor shower at night under a canopy of stars. The woodwork, artwork and landscaping throughout the property are amazing. The kitchen featured high quality equipment and a recycling bin, which we appreciated. The place was immaculate, and the owner never failed to answer our emails right away. We put the beach chairs, cooler and snorkel gear to good use on the days we ventured to the South Kohala beaches. One afternoon we walked up to the smoothie stand on the highway and enjoyed fresh, delicious smoothies. We were surprised at how close we were to the spectacular Pololu Valley, where we spent a memorable afternoon hiking and walking along the black sand beach. After we left here, we spent three days at the Volcanoes National Park, which was wonderful, but thanks to our special experience at the Mango House, Kapaau and nearby Hawi are our favorite parts of the island. If you want to be at a busy resort with all the crowds, then don't stay here. If you want privacy, beauty and quiet, then we highly recommend staying here.

                            Felt like a trip back in time, we loved the location and the extremely laid-back vibe that settled into our days the moment we arrived at the Mango House. Our whole family still misses the outdoor shower! The owner's brother popped by to see how we were doing and showed our kids the amazing treehouse on their adjacent property, welcoming them to play in it. He also cracked open a few coconuts for us. Nearby towns Kapa'au and Hawi were beautiful, quiet and filled with pretty amazing little spots... we loved our meal at Sushi Rock and had some fantastic craft beer at the Lighthouse. We will definitely be back.

                            My family along with my brother-in-law's family stayed in the three houses, and they were amazing. We had a total of 13 of us, and six of us stayed in the Mango house and absolutely loved it. The weather was perfect, and the view was incredible. The beach is just a short drive, or hike away. There are many hiking trails that we went on and the view only got better after each one. We will definitely be coming back for another trip.

                            Descriptions are inadequate to portray this sense of this place - it's gorgeous and private- the house is better than the photos, place was clean (without being sterile like some rentals - there was salt and shoyu and vinegar in the cupboard - which was nice). The Apa'apa'a winds are mystical there, and the banyon tree is an ent of a special sort. I dream about this place. I've stayed in the Banyon House and the Mango Cottage and hope to return to either.. I love the pace and people of Kohala. Housekeeper was great. Our hula halau wove our adornments on the porch and the space and grace of the property supported us all. Mahalo nui loa!

                            Relatives arrived at their rental and were so appreciative of the rentals that were provided for their stay. Both home close yet apart by lush tropical plants provided a wonderful separation making the units very private. Beautiful island hardwood floors and staircases among other features created the ambience that an islander could truly appreciate. Thankyou for providing our families with the best possible weekend.

                            Beautifully finished and appointed interior - I scored major points with my traveling companion. Beautiful woods, air and sun. Good communications and perfect directions, no surprises (which is a totally great thing with vacation rentals) Just outside of Kapa'a a car is necessary, you would be driving if you were touring East Kohala anyway. A great base. The drive to Waimea from Hawi is magical.
