Kapoho house description

The White Orchid is a beautiful house especially designed and built in 2007. The gardens surrounding the property are magical. White Orchid is located on the largest tidal pond in the area and emits a tranquil setting that feels like you are in your own oasis!

The ocean is right around the corner - a 2 minute walk to the Wai Opae marine coservation district, home to fish, coral and many varieties of sea life such as turtles. However, it is also a protected area for snorkeling safely. Wave breaks are further out and the snorkeling is amazing in a pond like setting.

The White Orchid is elegant and tastefully decorated throughout. It has a wonderful opening feeling, but is also very private. The furniture was desinged and imported especially for this house, as well as art work displayed by the owner who is an artist and whose paintings are displayed throughout the house. There are two private outdoor showers connected to each bedroom - totally delightful with tropical surroundings.

'Sunny' Kapoho is one of the micro-climatic areas on the east side of Hawaii and is known for having the best weather on the east side of Hawaii. We have the best air quality in the world and amazing tropical vegetation nearby, instead of the desert on the Kona side. Many wonderful activities are nearby, including Lava Tree State park, Po'hoiki which has great surfing and body boarding and picnicing. Down the red road (137) is Ahalanui warm pond, the black sand beach in Kehena and Kalapana at the end of the road which has lava viewing.

This house and area is a treasure you'll love to explore!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: I'm a designer and painter living right in the same area of Kapoho. The weather is wonderful as well as the vegetation and the ocean. I swim in the tidepools several times a week; I find this a very special area. I have two vacation rentals which I created the way I would want to vacation. They display beauty, elegance and tranquility in a tropical setting. I hope my guests truly enjoy the house and the surroundings!

              Why the Owner Chose Kapoho:
              I enjoy living here and thought other people would also enjoy this amazing area.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The house has a feeling of being in an oasis, with the tidal pond and beautiful gardens. The house itself is warm, elegant and relaxing. It has all the amenities desired.
