Kapoho house description

The Kapoho tidepoools, otherwise known as the Wai Opea Marine Wild Life Preserve, is home to the most incredible snorkeling reserve found anywhere in Hawaii. Just a 4 minute walk from the front door you'll discover this vast ocean region with many individual tidepools. These tidepools are safe, due to the outreaching volcanic shelf that keeps the pounding surf at bay. Some as deep as 40 feet and some as shallow as a couple of feet, but, all are teeming with tropical fish of all species, and the most beautiful coral formations you'll find anywhere in Hawaii.

Since Kapoho and our tiny oceanside village is right on the south east point, it receives the easterly tropical trade winds. It is incredible to sit and relax on the lanai, even on the hottest of days, and experience the cool trades.

The home, sits 500 feet from the ocean. The views from the wrap-around decks are wonderful. Coconut trees are everywhere. Natural fauna is in abundance in the whole community, and of course, from the rear wrap around walkway there is a nice ocean view.

The floors are all tiled, inside and out. The Lanai wraps around the upstairs and is covered by the extra large eves. You can walk all the way around to all the bedrooms that have slider glass doors/screens that open out to the decks, so anytime night or day you can just pull up a chair and relax and view the tropical rain forests. Even when it's pouring rain, because of the overhead roof, you'll never get a drop of rain on you.

There is a full open kitchen with all cookware, and appliances.

There are ceiling fans in every room, and on the lanai. The back star viewing lanai has a BBQ. There is a custom handicap friendly stair case that leads 14 feet up to house plus a two car enclosed garage with door opener. Very important because it keeps your rental car safe from falling coconuts.

The master bedroom with a private bathroom and large jacuzzi bathtub is a great retreat. With lots of fine art and a nice library, free phone calling to the mainland, wonderful neighbors next door and included Internet access, you will be very comfortable. Beyond the back yard is forest, no neighbor, and new neighbor building on the North side of the house. Lots and lots of privacy.
