Kapoho house description

Fabulous OCEANFRONT HOME with snorkeling, kayaking, surfing and swimming directly in front of the house! Nice home built with quality materials, and stocked with just about anything you would want. You'll love it.

OUTDOORS: Starting at the top of our home
* Roof Top Deck, with Hot Tub: Talk about a view! There is a 270 degree ocean view--no kidding. There is also a chaise lounge, and 2 chairs with ottomans, a table and some chairs. The moon and sun both rise out of the ocean and this is a fantastic place to see that. With a clear night, the stars, and the Milky Way, are awe-inspiring. There's not too many places in the world where you can see stars so close to the horizon.
* Lanai off the Great Room: This is your outdoor dining room. There is a large table and 6 comfortable, high-end, lanai chairs. There are also two chairs with ottomans for relaxing, reading, sipping a cocktail or a smoothie.
* Downstairs Lanai: When the weather is really hot, there is a ground level lanai that is just perfect. There's a picnic table too.

INDOORS:
* Great Room: This large room is used for many purposes. Comfortable Living Room, cozy Dining Room, extra Bedroom (double bed), TV, large Kitchen and a Bar. The vintage rattan furniture is just right for Hawaii.
* Kitchen: The kitchen has top of the line hardware including appliances, faucets, sharp knives, stainless pots and pans. There is also a cappuccino machine, French press, lots of tea strainers, blender, fresh fruit/vegetable juicer, toaster, mixing bowls, kitchen towels, flatware, serving pieces, cutting boards, even a pressure cooker. And the bar area, with sink, works well as a serving buffet or a hang-out for the non-chef(s) to keep the chef(s) company. The whole area is very functional, and part of the great room, so nobody misses any of the fun happenings.
* Master Bedroom: Large room with a comfortable (not too hard, not too soft) Queen-sized bed, built-in dresser and closet, ceiling fan, a koa rocking chair for reading or relaxing, reading lamps and romantic indirect lighting. Did we mention the HUGE ocean view? This room is quite gorgeous, if we do say so ourselves.
* Master Bath: Tropical gone fabulous. Shower with two shower-heads, bench, and an ocean view! There’s also an unbelievable piece of granite that makes the walls of the shower look like you are inside a really refreshing volcano. Of course there are towels, shampoo, conditioner, hand/body soap and a hair dryer.
* Second Bedroom: Comfortable Pillow-Top Queen-sized bed, closet with built in shelf for your luggage, reading lamp, 2 nice chairs, ceiling fan, and a big ocean view.
* Second Bathroom: This bathroom is across the hall from the second bedroom, so it functions as the powder room as well. It has a tub/shower, with marble walls, a cool copper sink, and toilet all in a good-sized bathroom. Fluffy towels, shampoo, conditioner, hand/body soap, and a hair dryer make it all work well.
* Office: Free Wi-Fi, two professional, comfortable, office chairs and a large (3' x 5') partner desk. If you have to do work while you are visiting, this is an inspiring spot--ocean views from all locations. There's also a door leading to the back deck, for an extra-spacious feeling.

Also:
* Garage: This is where all the toys (4 bicycles, 2 boogie boards, 3 kayaks, and 2 surf boards) live. There are some stray swim fins, but we can't guarantee we'll have your size.
* Elevator: For lots of groceries or for someone who doesn't handle stairs well. Someone in a wheelchair could stay, however, if you truly need an accessible, ADA, home, please call for all the details.

Other information about what we provide:
* Shampoo, Hair Conditioner, Hand/Body soap, Dish soap, Dishwasher soap, Laundry soap, Toilet Paper (If this seems silly to mention, we agree. We stayed at a distant vacation rental where they gave us 'starter' toilet paper. It was a very short roll of TP in each bathroom. We don't want you to have to experience that.)
* Hair Dryers
* Umbrellas--just in case

More details about our home:
* Our home is built with top-quality materials and attention to every detail. It has stone decking, solid brass ship’s lighting fixtures, and plenty of ventilation-providing windows. The front door is big and beautiful -- 4 feet wide locally-milled eucalyptus with a stained-glass window panel depicting the fish found in the bay. On the inside there is the same brass ship’s lighting, local hardwoods for the cabinets and floors (jacaranda, silky oak), granite, copper, and a beachy white-washed ceiling with indirect and direct lighting. It is friendly, comfortable, and ultimately luxurious.

We regret that this home is not really suitable for children between the ages of 1 year and 12 years. Also, we have a one week minimum stay. Exceptions are made if less than one week is available between existing reservations. We hope you understand.

We're also about an hour's drive from Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park, the historical caldera and home of Pele, the fire goddess. You can check out Hot/Warm Ponds, Champagne Pond, and Wai O Pae Marine Sanctuary all within walking, or short biking distance. Surfing in your front yard is pretty fun too. Because of all the warm springs in the area the ocean water is a little bit warmer here, around 5 degrees F -- not a lot, but for us every degree helps....moreless

                        Wow what a great place you have Barb. It was all that was mentioned and more. From the beautiful wood flooring to the designer master bath with walk in shower we thoroughly enjoyed it. The many amenities were very much appreciate also. The garage with the elevator was nice and convenient. We rode the bikes all around the neighborhood as well as to the tidal pools near by. One of the neighbors showed us the trail to the pools. Baskets on the bikes were perfect for all the snorkeling gear and a lunch as well. The snorkeling was great everywhere but probably best right in front of the house. The access was easy and we saw turtles several different times. The kayaks were my favorite though. The double was fine but I really enjoyed the single with the adjustable foot posts and the full seat. The regulation life vest was also appreciated. This area has it all. No hotels or resorts near so no tourist scene. We wanted to get away from it all and this worked! The upper deck with the tub was great for star gazing. We saw whales two different times and I saw one breach, that was really something! We will be back someday I hope. Thanks Barb and Jack for a beautiful place to stay!

                        Dear Barbara & Jack - I wanted to send you a personal thankyou on behalf of my husband, Stuart, & myself for the unforgettable week we spent in your spectacular home with our two very good friends. Not only was your home comfortable & beautiful, & oh - how beautiful - it was also a gift in our lives that we both truly needed & will forever treasure. The sound of the ocean; the views & tranquility - everything about it will have such a special place in our hearts. We'll have been married 28 years this May, never had a honeymoon & hadn't had a holiday away together in 26 years & the week in your home broke the spell. So as I said, it truly was a gift. We experienced, saw & sensed things we'd never even imagined & we talk about them every day & look at the amazing photos & videos to remind us that it infact wasn't just a beautiful dream & we relive every delicious moment, whether it was watching the sea turtles in the bay right infront of the house every morning while we ate breakfast, & one day actually swimming with one; or the 5 minute bike ride to snorkel in one of the thermal tidal pools, brimming with incredible sea life (mind-blowingly brilliant); or taking a helicopter ride from Hilo Airport & seeing live bubbling lava followed by the drive up to the summit of Mauna Kea which at almost 14,000ft literally took our breath away! It's not often you get to be above the clouds & not be in an aircraft. And can I just mention the beautiful scent of the frangipani flowers that sweetly scented the air....something else so special. We would love to come back - but stay for two weeks instead of just one! From our hearts, thankyou. Fiona & Stuart. Vermont.

                        We shared this wonderful setting with another couple for the ultimate get-away. If you tire of the water views, bike rides, snorkeling, and yoga classes nearby, you can always go to the top floor deck and watch the constellations come out at night. It's the perfect setting for star gazing and if too cold, just jump into the jacuzzi!

                        7/16/13 – 7/23/13 As noted dozens of times previously your hale is perfection! We highly recommend 1. Uncle Robert’s on Wed. Night. 2. Volcano Nat’l Park – an ALL DAY INTO NIGHT event to see the glow @ the caldera. Dom’t miss Lava Tube & “Fern Forest” 3. Wai `O Pae Marine Sanctuary – when looking at ocean on your far right is a coral heaven more beautiful than any I’ve seen. Please donate to road upkeep. Not many were & we want it to be open for next visit! 4. Mile marker 56 toward Kona is a true black sand beach – Punalu`u . Honu by the dozen munching limu 2 feet offshore and the lily pond – Amazing. Pack picnic lunch to avoid volcano store $2 (bad) sandwich – ha ha 5. Sit back on your own deck and Breathe. Amazing air. My skin feels so great. Jack – my husband loves your woodworking skills! Mahalo and Aloha. Big Island Love.

                        Thank you for opening your home to us. It is exquisite. So much detail! We were amazed how close to the water we were. Every night the waves lulled us to sleep. I’ve never rested better. Puna has so much to offer and the people are so friendly. What great neighbors you have. This is the best vacation we have ever had... absolutely unforgettable! We spent a week in Kona and while it was beautiful we fell in love with Puna. We are convinced your home was what made the trip pure magic! My son is ready to move here. He says he will miss his friends, but as friendly as everyone is here, he’s not worried about making new ones. We’ll see you soon if everything works out the way he wants. Smile. Thank you!

                        This home is just fabulous!!!!!!!!!! If you want to be right next to the ocean,this is the place for you. The views of the bay are outstanding. The home is very elegant yet comfortable. A lot of planning and organization went into building this home because everything from the floor plan, construction and decor just seems to be where its supposed to be....There is just so much room to relax and just enjoy your vacation time.....The rooftop deck offers a perspective that you'll never get from anywhere else, that's a guarantee !!!!! The neighbors on this private road are quite pleasant and we were lucky to be able to engage in very pleasant conversation with during our stay. They provided a warm and welcome aloha as well as a sense of security for us. We are annual visitors to the gated community since 2006. This is the best home that we have been privileged to vacation at. We strongly recommend it for anyone who wants oceanfront paradise, great views, a beautiful and comfortable home in a private setting. thanks it was our pleasure!

                        Beautiful property and very nice location. The house is beautiful and private, waterfront. There is access to the bay for swimming and snorkelling right in the back yard. It is rocky there but since it is a bay the waves are pretty mild. The subdivision is gated and well maintained. We enjoyed sleeping to the sound of the waves (in a very comfy bed) and gazing at the stars while in a hot tub on the roof. There is a large covered deck outside the living room that was always very cool and breezy (very nice on a hot day) and if one feels like lying in the sun there is a roof with patio furniture and a hot tub. It is also a wonderful place for doing yoga and meditating. Wonderful. The kitchen had everything we needed for cozy dinners on nights we did not feel like going out. The house is about 45 minutes drive to the National Volcanos Park, very close to Pahoa (pharmacy, groceries, a few restaurants) and about 30 minutes to Hilo (rush hour traffic could be slow). Thermally heated Champagne Pond is right in the subdivision. One of our favourite evening outings besides looking at a Kilauea glowing Crater after sunset was going to a Wednesday evening local gathering at Uncle Robert's bar in a town of Kalapana about 20 min drive from the house on an beautiful scenic road along the coast. A fun place with a local flavor. Another place we would recommend to visit is by Onomea Bay (north of Hilo)-Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens. It is worth the drive (another scenic road leading there) and is absolutely breathtaking. We definitely would recommend this property for couples and families with older children (there are two queen beds including master), for adventure seekers as well as for those just wanting a quiet getaway.

                        We love Kapoho area and keep coming back to this less developed part of the Big Island with its thermally heated pools, incredible snorkeling at Waiopae pools, hikes through the lava flows and a Volcano itself. Barbara’s and Jacks home was an awesome place to stay this time. It is very comfortable, welcoming, and beautiful. It felt very luxurious! They put a lot of work and love to this home and it feels like a very happy home. I liked the fact that the house is new and everything is in a perfect shape. The owners put a lot of thought into how to run everything smoothly and were very responsive to our questions and requests. I loved the Hawaiian style artwork and accessories. It felt relaxing and inspiring at the same time. It was wonderful to wake up with the sun and do yoga on the roof top. The views are incredible! We appreciated that owners had a collection of bicycles and kayaks to use. It was great to bike to our favorite Champaign pond. We were hoping to explore the bay with the kayaks but the ocean was a bit rough this time. We’ll be back!

                        This home was so much more than I expected and one of the most comfortable that I have stayed. I couldn't stop looking at all the details, and trying to decide on my favorite. With the the magnificent ocean views, the wood floors, the lava-look granite countertops, the Hawaiiana décor, the sea breezes, the ceiling fans, I knew that I was in Hawaii! I loved the meals on the lanai overlooking the ocean, soaking in the hot tub, star gazing on the upper deck, sleeping to the lulling sounds of the Pacific, meeting the friendly neighbors, and shopping at local farmers’ markets for produce and little gifts to take home. Mahalo Jack and Barbara for the tropical R&R!

                        My wife and I stumbled upon this rental while looking for our anniversary getaway. We couldn't have picked a more cozy, luxurious, exotic place! The home was built recently so it is immaculate! Beautiful hardwood floors and cabinets. The cooking facilities were more than we would ever need, so anyone who loves to cook would have all the essentials. It is a bit hard to find since our GPS didnt work, but upon confirming our reservation were given spot on directions to the house. The best part of our stay was enjoying the hot tub on the top deck in the evenings while watching sunset. I would highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone and everyone! Oh, and there's an elevator! If anyone needs wheelchair accessibility, i highly doubt many places can offer that!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Here we are, enjoying life, in the sun.

                      Why the Owner Chose Kapoho:
                      After living in East Hawaii for 30 years, we built this house. Our dream. We camped here on weekends for a few years and completed the house in 2009. We checked out the views, the wind, and most importantly how we would want to LIVE here. Most agree, we did a really good job. Perhaps you will too.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Thermally heated tidal ponds are common in this area and some are warmer than others. This is the only area of Hawaii with these, so it is truly unique. The Marine Sanctuary is a 5 minute bike ride (or a 15 minute walk). Incredibly colored/shaped corals and small schools of good-sized fish. Big schools of smaller fish. We have travelled quite a bit, and this gem is easily accessed--what a treat. Or you can bike up and down the coast, with minimal car interference, even though we don't have official bike lanes. Or you can walk along the coast, towards Cape Kumukahi, the most Eastern point of the island, and the state.
