Kapoho house description

This is your opportunity to stay in one of the premier homes in Kapoho, right on the ocean!! I am taking reservations for 2011 and 2012 and will have Seasonal Specials throughout the year. Please tell me the dates you are interested in and I will promptly get back to you with rates for the times you may want!

THIS HOUSE BECAME A TV STAR IN OCTOBER 2007! IT WAS FILMED AND FEATURED ON THE HOME AND GARDENS TELEVISION SHOW.....(HGTV)....'HOUSE HUNTERS.' TAPING OF THE SHOW OCCURRED IN OCTOBER, 2007, WITH THE PROGRAM BEING RERUN WITH THE TITLE 'LOOKING TO GET OUT OF THE COLD!'....SO IF YOU DECIDE TO STAY HERE, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE WHERE YOU STAYED ON THE TELEVISION SHOW! THE SHOW OFTEN RUNS IN RERUNS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR! In the meantime I say....Aloha, and thank you for your interest in our wonderful Big Island vacation rental. I know you will enjoy the Panoramic oceanview from all rooms of this first class oceanfront vacation house, which will take your breath away... As well as the spectacular views as the moon and sun rises.

SOME RECENT GUESTS SAID IT BEST.....'Aloha Beth' - just wanted to let you know we definitely did not regret our decision to stay at Oceanfront! It was definitely our favorite of the 4 places we stayed on the Big Island this trip. The view, the waves, the peacefulness, the proximity to such beautiful places - wow! We even liked the fact that it rained briefly a few of the mornings so we could sleep in and relax a bit! The house was so comfortable with all the details thought of! And now you have 2 boogie boards in your storage shed for guests to use since we won't need them in Colorado!....Mahalo'

'What a jewel of the world your place is! We spent 9 nights and each day was better than the last. Amazing sunrises, a moon rise that lit up the ocean, and the best snorkeling right from your front yard! Our kids had a blast in the tide pools and even saw an octopus! We hated to leave and we will definitely be back! Mahalo for letting us stay at your house.

MARTINI POND, which is a tidal pool in your front yard, has geothermally, volcanic heated water flowing into it and it mixes with the ocean water for a soothing blend that you will feel wash over you as you swim in this unique ocean pond!

I try to pay attention to your every need, with beautiful Polynesian decor, bamboo ceiling, granite kitchen counters, and shoji doors. A honeymoon delight or a place to rejuvenate oneself. An ideal place for snorkeling in the many lava tidal pools as Vacationland is now a Marine Fish Reserve. Spend time in Martini Pond for your daily dip, shower off, and then go for a ride on bicycles available at the house into a neighborhood that is like a botanical garden filled with flowers, tress, and foliage. A recent guest told us it is like being in the movie Jurrasic Park! During whale season, November through April, you can hear their tails flap from your deck.

Located on the east side of the Big Island known as sunny Kapoho, you are minutes to thermal hot ponds, Kahena Black Sand Beach, awe-inspriring scenery as you drive through the Hawaiian countryside, and so much more. Take a day trip to Volcano National Park or spend the day in Hilo. Be sure to enjoy the local cuisine in Pahoa, just 8 miles away. This oceanfront vacation house is in an ideal location to experience the pristine undeveloped east side of the Big Island in luxury. MAHALO! I HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU!

                    When we walked up the stairs and entered the house with the ponds and ocean spread out before us, we both said "Wow"! There is good and bad to that. We found it difficult to leave the lanai and we made friends with the geckos. The view is exceptional and that word just doesn't cover it. We never tired of watching the ocean moods each hour. Get up to see at least one sunrise. The house itself is comfortable, functional in every way, and feels like the best of Hawaii. Definitely a romantic getaway for any age. We highly recommend this lovely place and really hope to come back again and stay longer. Be aware that this home is about 45 minutes from Hilo and 45 minutes from the Volcano National Park. Nearby Pahoa is a fun town to explore. You need good balance and hard soled water shoes to get out to the ponds in front -- worth it. I felt we were truly in the most beautiful part of hawaii here. Even sprinkles made no difference. Thank you Beth! PS: This place was recommended to us by friends that stayed there in 2013 and loved it! We brought them wine as thanks.

                    Owner response: You have made my day! I am so glad you enjoyed your Hawaiian vacation and that Oceanfront was you choice of accommodation!

                    We had a great time getting up in the morning early with the sunrise. going out to the Marine reserve and snorkleing. We saw lots of fish, turtles and coral. We would spend the rest of the day exploring the area including Volcano park. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks for a great vacation.

                    Property as advertised. a lot of stairs to go up and down with luggage and every time you want to go out somewhere. Comfortable and well furnished. The view from lanai deck was great, right over the ocean and tide ponds. Only complaint was that there was not a propane or electric grill/bbq , which we had expected.

                    The property had an excellent view with a nice porch. Overall the place and cooking and dinnerware, being older, were average.

                    First off, we loved staying in this home. The accommodations are excellent and the location is outstanding. Unfortunately we lost water service during our stay which was just bad luck but once we contacted Beth she jumped right on it and called Superhandyman Steve. He was at the house in a matter of a couple of hours (on a Sunday no less) and dug right in (literally) to solve the problem. Not only did he solve the problem but he gave us tips on things to do during our visit. Once the water problem was solved the rest of our stay was wonderful. We loved snorkeling in the tide pools and I wish we could have stayed longer. I would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting to stay on the Big Island. Thanks Beth for the opportunity to stay in your home.

It's always scary if a problem arises for a guest, but I am so grateful for the amazing staff of people who look after my home to insure my guests experience the Aloha spirit at its finest ; ). Thank you again, hope to have you back again!

                    This house has the most amazing view of the ocean that can be enjoyed from the deck, living room and master bedroom. The home is beautifully decorated with an artist touch all through out. The location is very serene...a great place to relax and snorkel right in front of the house.

                    The listing was accurate and for once the actual home and views were better than the website. The home and property were very clean and well maintained, the owner had left lots of notes in the home with instructions for how to use and operate everything. The view took our breath away and when you slide open the patio doors the entire home including the master bedroom open up to the outside sights and sounds of the ocean. We really enjoyed the nearby tide pools, really amazing tropical fish including a large moray eel, just down the street and enjoyed riding the bikes which were provided around the very quiet neighbourhood. If you are physically up to a long fast hike we would highly recommend taking the Kalapana Cultural Tour where local guides take you out across the lava fields to see the lava flows into the ocean - amazing. Note: Wednesday evening is market night at the meeting point with lots of great food along with all the hippies living in the area. The drive across the centre of the island to Kona was one of the best drives we have experienced. The road is new and an easy drive between the two volcanoes, the landscape changes constantly and is really awesome, a stop at Waimea is a must a truly lovely town and the temperature is perfect.

                    Recommended for: Romantic getaway, adventure seekers, tourists without a car, families with teenagers.

                    We were very happy with this cottage in Kapoho. This was the first time we had stayed in a vacation rental and were very impressed. We loved waking up every morning and seeing the sun rise over the ocean right from our bed! The view is fantastic, and its such a quiet neighborhood that all you can hear are the waves and birds! The house is surrounded by trees, so you can't see the neighbors, but they are not far enough that you feel isolated. The house is small but very comfortable with a good sized kitchen and bathroom. Kitchen has good appliances including a dishwasher, and has plenty of dishes and pots and pans to use. Even some spices and cooking oil. Bathroom has a very nice washer and dryer, and laundry detergent and fabric softener were supplied. In all, a very nice experience. We did not want to leave. Mahalo Beth for sharing it with us

                    Thoroughly enjoyed our 10 day stay at Oceanfront Vacation House. Very private in a great location and nice neighborhood. Lots of things to do in the area: day trips to volcano park, waterfalls, rain forest hikes, snorkeling, farmers market,and day trip to Kona. Great kitchen. Sunrises over the ocean every morning were fantastic - never tire of that view! Especially liked having the bicycles available for our use and outdoor shower.

                    This was a fantastic place, by far one of our favorites so far on the big island. The house was beautiful and very comfortable. The deck was perfect for sitting and watching the sun come up everyday. We would recommend this home to any of our family and friends.

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: Who could resist the warm tropical breezes, the amazing snorkeling in the world famous tide pools, and above all, the view from the lanai, the sunrise, even the cocque frogs! I'm an Insurance Agent and Financial Planner. I work in a high stress job. Coming to stay at the house is a respit from all the crazy things going on in the world, at work, and life in general.

                  Why the Owner Chose Kapoho:
                  There are some places in this world that are magical, and Kapoho is one of those places. It is one of a kind, with special qualities that make it an ideal place to visit, live and play. There truly are, no other places like it!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The view from the lanai has been described by dozens of visitors to Oceanfront as the 'million dollar view'. You have to see it to believe it. The ocean shows different qualities every day. In fact, it changes by the minute. From its majestic purples, royal blues, to its golden hues it puts on a different show each day. With tide pools to snorkel in, first class accommodations, and the ocean right out your door, I truly can't think of a better place to stay while you take advantage of all the wonderful things to do on the Big Island.
