Property description

'Wow' is what you will say when you walk into this ocean view home situated on a hillside in the gated community of Kapoho Beach Lots. It's bright and airy with the afternoon and evening tradewinds blowing through the space.

You will love to lounge on the large covered lanai overlooking the ocean with beautiful sunrises every morning.

Step down the lava rock steps into the warm pond. It's almost like having your own mini fern grotto. This secluded warm pond is thermally heated and keeps a temperature of between 90-92 degrees year round. It's surrounded by ferns, palms and some say, 'healing properties' of the noni plants. The pond is between 3 feet to over 7 feet depending on the tides. (Sorry no fishing in the pond).

Only 1-1/2 blocks, or about a 4 minute walk to the famous Champagne Pond where you can swim with the sea turtles.

The home offers many amenities - two separate bedrooms on each side of the living space, with their own bathrooms. Perfect for two couples! Each bedroom has a queen bed and view of the ocean. One bedroom also has it's own TV/DVD player and a desk, if you just have to work on your vacation.

The large great room has vaulted ceilings, views of the ocean, a dining table for 4 people, a comfortable sofa, two lounge chairs and a large flat screen TV with Direct TV and all the movie and sports channels. Wireless internet is provided.

The kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator/freezer, icemaker and water in the door, electric stove, coffee pot, dishwasher, rice cooker, blender, nice pots and pans, glasses, dishes and cutlery. There is also an indoor laundry area with washer and dryer.

There is a covered carport for two cars. 4 guest maximum. Sorry, no parties.

Car: Necessary

Lava flow viewing (as Pele Permits), just about 15 minute drive. Only 30 miles to Volcano National Park. Snorkel with the sea turtles in Champagne Pond, just 1-1/2 blocks. Great snorkeling at the Waiopae tidepools, one mile away. Waterfalls, beautiful coastline rides down Red Road (Hiway 137). Historic Pahoa Village on 12 miles, with many great restaurants, banks, boutiques, Long Drugs.

Note: As of 10/2014, there is a lava flow slowly advancing towards Pahoa. This could be a once in a lifetime chance to witness a change in the Hawaii landscape, if the lava advances into the town. There is a possibility that the highway 130 could be covered by the lava. The County has already built several alternate contingency routes - good gravel roads for travel to and from the Puna area, if needed. The car rental companies will allow rental cars to use these roads. We recommend 4-wheel drive.
