Kapoho house description
The Orchid Elua is a beautiful, brand new property, completed in 2008! The house overlooks its own tidal pond and the gardens surrounding the property make you feel like you are in a tropical oasis. The house is close to the ocean, a 2 minute walk to the 'secret' entrance for snorkeling in the tide pool and marine conservation area.
The Orchid Elua displays elegance and beauty throughout. All materials are top of the line, granite counter tops, wood and travertine floors. The owner designed and imported all the furniture and is an artist whose paintings are displayed throughout the house. Unique touches from the owner's travels, such as curtains brought in from Trieste, Italy, and objects from Morocco make the experience special. The house has french doors that open onto the back enclosed lanai, perfect for dining, and bathing in the breezy airflow through the house. The second story has spectacular views; each bedroom has its own private bathroom and lanai.
"Sunny" Kapoho is known for having the best weather on the east side of the island; least amount of rainfall, but still displaying tropical vegetation and rain forests nearby. We boast having the best air quality in the world in this little area of the island. One mile down the 'Red Road' is Ahalanui Warm Pond; an ocean-fed 90 degree pool. Further down the road is Poho'iki, the best surfing and boogie boarding in the area and newly renovated park area. Keep heading down the Red Road, arguably the most beautiful road in all the islands. As a painter, we are often seen along the roadside capturing the spectacular beauty of the ocean and tropical vegetation. At the end of the road is Kalapana, where Pele has a nightly viewing of the lava flow.
If you want a tropical, relaxing retreat while exploring Hawaii, the Orchid Property is your answer!

Very relaxing and private
Very relaxing and private
We are a Kamaaiana couple from Oahu who stayed here with my brother and an old friend and had a very enjoyable time. The house is located minutes walk from the water but is quiet and private as it is not oceanfront nor on the main road. The many bedrooms with seperate bathrooms and balconies gave everyone plenty of room. I was worried about the noise from the Coqui frogs but they were not loud at all. A very enjoyable stay and would love to return some day for another visit.

Great vacation house and quiet location!
Great vacation house and quiet location!
The Orchid Elua Lagoon House was a great rental for our family. All 4 bedrooms have very comfortable beds and their own private full bathroom, which was a huge plus for us. We didn't realize it when we rented it, but we found ourselves doubting the house we rented on the other side of the Island for the duration of our vacation just because we would not all have our own bathroom. When at the house we spent most of our time on the lanai. It was great to dine out there and listen to the creatures chirp throughout the day and night. The tide pools are awesome! We spent most of our time there. Our kids are 8 & 10 and love to swim. This was a great place to snorkel and see all kinds of fish in nice calm water. We went exploring in Hilo and asked around about a nice beach for the kids....one guy actually said the best place to snorkel was in tide pools located near a residential area.....he was talking about the Orchid Elua Lagoon House area. There's not much of a beach, if you are looking for sand. Lots of lava rock, but if you can make it in the water, you will love it! My mom and dad even snorkeled for the first time ever. We stayed at this house with 2 sets of grandparents and our family of 4.....everyone absolutely loved the Orchid Elua Lagoon House. Nice quiet, laid-back neighborhood. Short walk to tide pools. If you are considering a house in this area, you won't be disappointed! Owner was very helpful and pleasant to work with. Highly recommend!

This place is fabulous. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle and just relax with friends or family this is it. Beautifully designed with excellent functionality for a large group. 4 bedrooms each with a bathroom! Granite counter tops. Screened in porch for big dinners. Great balconies on each room to relax and look out on the tidal pool and natural vegetation. Very quiet and relaxing. Close to great snorkling and swimming holes. Amazing sunrises and morning walks. This is the place to get your Qi back. Well worth it even for just 2 people. Can't wait to come back.

About the owner: I live in Kapoho and am a designer and painter. I have a gallery with some artists in Hilo and find this area of Hawaii to be inspirational on many levels. I am also a yoga teacher and I believe anyone visiting Hawaii will find many opportunities for healing and relaxation. The visual interest and diversification on the island is a fascinating and unique experience.
Why the Owner Chose Kapoho:
Since I live in Kapoho of the Big Island, I wanted to invest in the area and provide a beautiful retreat for people to visit, relax, and enjoy this part of Hawaii.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Relaxation while on vacation is something everyone needs and desires. Waking up and looking out the window to beautiful gardens and water is the perfect way to begin exploring the surroundings. Having the ocean and tidepools which provide wonderful snorkeling right outside the door is the first of many unique qualities in this part of the island. We are also on the 'Road Road' which winds along the coast, ending in Kalapana, hosting the only viewing area of the active lava flow.
