The Pualani Tropical Kapoho Beach home features open-beamed ceilings and panoramic tropical and ocean views. You can see the passing lights of cruise ships at night from the lanai. There's a full kitchen, generous living and dining area opening onto the lanai, a queen-bed bedroom and bath. For extra guests, the second bedroom downstairs has two double beds. And for your evenings, there's a Satellite flat screenTV/DVD, an assortment of videos and CDs, and for those who would rather curl up with a book, there are lots to choose from. Outside in a gazebo near the house is a full-featured spa for your relaxation and enjoyment! The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, blender, coffee maker, range, fridge and all cooking and dining needs. This home is thoughtfully and tastefully appointed to make it feel like your very own home-in-Paradise. Ride bicycles to the nearby tidepools and lagoons for wonderful snorkeling and swimming. Hot tub, outdoor shower, and hi-speed internet!
Location: Located in a quiet, oceanfront, gated community with easy accessibility to Kapoho Bay and the ocean itself, there are several calm lagoons for swimming and snorkeling. Some of the lagoons are even heated by geothermal fresh-water springs! A guide map at the house will direct you to all the best spots. Champagne Pond is a 10-15 minute walk from the home or 5 minutes by bicycle, and this home is perfectly located to walk to the Wai'opae Marine Sanctuary for even more swimming and snorkeling experiences. Volcano National Park is about a 45 minute drive.
This tropical hideaway is a perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of other tourist locations. The trade winds keep the home comfortable year round, and the sound of the ocean across the street with the waves rolling across the reef is very pleasing to the senses! You feel like you are in your own tropical tree house with panoramic ocean and tropical views. I have many happy guests, and some who love to return year after year!

Area: Kapoho is a beautiful, peaceful and quiet place that is perfect for those who want no part of 'tourist Hawaii.' It is a small, friendly community that's also the sunniest spot on the Windward side of the Big Island. The nights bring a little rain, and the days are generally sunny and bright.
If you have already experienced 'tourist Hawaii' and are ready for something different, you will appreciate this. If you would like a taste of what it would be like to live among the folks who spend their lives here, work here, play here and raise their families here, you might find this interesting. If you're into hiking, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, exploring, or just being, you'll love it.
