Property description

Oceanfront cottage on very private 1 acre. Tidal pools to explore and cool down, while the waves crash into the reef you experience the freshness and invigorating effervescence of the fresh clean ocean bath.
Wander from your cottage through the grassy lawns, down the rock wall staircase, follow the black sand paths to the beach sand that has been deposited around the reef.

Photograph, fish, whale watch, catch the glimmer of spinner dolphins and sea turtles bobbing in the surf.
Watch the colorful sunrise over the ocean, the glow of the volcano in the distant night sky as you count your lucky stars and watch the bright moon rise.
The spacious studio has a comfy memory foam overlay on a queen bed with luxurious 550 thread count sheets to crawl into after a day of exploring the tidal pools in front of the property. Photo ops abound! Fish or just relax with a book. Use this peaceful beautiful place with the sound of the waves to inspire you. Be creative and write, paint or whatever your heart desires.
Make this vacation your health retreat! We have access to many therapists and practitioners in the area.
1.5 miles NE you will find a hidden black sand beach with tide pools and beautiful palm tree lined coastal view. Swim and sun.
Just 5 miles away to the East are the hot ponds. You may pack your lunch or buy from a vendor as you enjoy swimming and surfing at Pohoiki Bay. Watch the fishing boats launch and return with their catch. Travel on East to Kapoho to enjoy world class snorkeling. Just 7 miles west is Kalapana. Location of the 1980 lava flow that ran over most of the village,the developement ,& the black sand beach.
Walk out to the newly forming beach!
Uncle Roberts is a local family of survivors who did not lose their property to the flow. They have an open air market on Wednesdays, Fridays with food vendors and hula, music all kinds of excitement!
They organize lava tours. The lava viewing site is close by and there is a convenience store and Pahoa Village Cafe Kalapana a great outdoor cafe as well! These are just a few things to do on Hwy 137 .
Did we mention the hilly scenic road is also a favorite for bikes and runners?
Kalani Resort and Spa is less than 1 mile away from the cottage and offers yoga, massage, healing touch, hula lessons, drawing, lahala weaving and we keep a schedule in the cottage to look at. They are serving food items in their cafe or you can enjoy their buffet meals.
There are many attractions to the Big Island. The Volcanoes National Park where the crater is glowing and attracting many visitors in the evenings.

Take your 4 wheel drive up to the observatories on Mauna Kea or go to the visitors center which is not so challenging a rental car can get there.
Rainbow Falls, The Botanical Gardens, The Imiloa Astronomy Center, Tsunami museum and The Palace Theater, the Panaewa Zoo, the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut plant are a few things to do in or near Hilo Town 30 minutes away.
On the way home check out the award wining Pahoa Town, 11 miles from the Cottage via Opihikao Road. Pahoa has the quaint old Hawaiian style buildings on the main street. Restaurants such as Kaleo's, Ning's, Luquin's are there to serve you.
The community center boasts of an Olympic size swimming pool complete with exercise programs and a community center with yoga or hula classes.

This property is equipped with a strong cell phone booster, Broadband internet, free USA and Canadian long distance Majic Jack voice over phone and Direct TV with the sports and movie channels provided. We believe you will be hard pressed to find time to watch TV with this view.
Disclosure: Inclement weather could interrupt internet/phone and Television service availability.

This property is Eco-friendly and is on solar power. That is adequate to run a bi-pap or sleep apnea machine at night. Bathroom is fully modern plumbed, detached. You will love the outdoor shower attached to the cottage with an ocean view. Enjoy on demand hot and cold running water while you experience a million dollar view. We recently put in a new hot water heater for the cottage and I am hearing rave reviews from our current guests!!
The cottage is appointed with many wonderful books and reading materials. There is an assortment of Hawaiian history , folklore, crafts and customs along with stories. Plants and flowers can be identified.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I fell in love with this amazing property. The minute I walked onto this place I was in awe of it and totally blessed to have it. Betsy has a nursing background with complimentary medicine interests. Betsy has always wanted to be involved with healing through natural means. The mind body connection teaches us that environment can be the best medicine for someone with a stressful lifestyle. We offer a respite from the daily grind. We have seen the effect this has on guests that arrive stressed, nervous, agitated and leave rested, with serenity, tranquility,peacefulness. We are in touch with the reputable healing centers and therapists on this island. There are massage therapists close by and will make house calls. She is happy to share the healthful recipes from a local healer/colonic therapists used for their clients during a cleanse. Kalani health retreat less than 1 mile away teaches art,yoga,hula, weaving lahala,ecstatic dance,12 step programs,massage therapy with lomi lomi, hot rocks and has great food too!

Why the Owner Chose Kapoho:
Whats not to love? Ocean front, no visible neighbors or road, seclusion, privacy, the ultimate destination for serenity, peace, tranquility. Eye candy views, the tidal pools, expansive lawns and the jungle canopy of flora that keeps the road far away from the guest. There is a peaceful uplifting feeling for those that come here. Many people comment on the 'good feeling' spiritual experience they get here. Let the surf lull you to sleep every night! Watch the pink orange sun rise over the ocean each morning. Rumor has it that Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones stayed here. This is unverified of course.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Oceanfront, unobstructed views, no street or houses between the cottage and the beach, tidal pools to play, examine and soak in. Abundant sea life such as whales, dolphins, sea turtles and reef creatures to marvel at. Very private on all 4 sides, so unique! Not visible from the street. Play croquet or volleyball or just dig your toes in the lawn. Camping is available for the extra guests. There are tents available for rent. There is a 3/4 bath detached. A delightful bamboo and river rock outdoor shower with hot and cold running water. The kitchen is Jimmy Buffet style (complete with the parrot picture) outdoor and open with a propane stove and refrigerator, stainless steel sink,large cupboard to stow away your goods. All with a million dollar view!! Our guests have a commercial stainless steel propane grill at their disposal with a side burner to grill, roast, make rice and cook a complete meal. Enjoy your gourmet meal or snack on the open lanai/kitchen/dining room with the best view in town! DISCLOSURE: This is a lava zone 2!! The lava flows on this Island which many people are counting on when visiting. The road hwy 130 may be affected with the lava moving slowly in that direction 100yds/day. There are 9,000 residents who all need a route to do commerce here. I know of 2 roads being opened up. One will reconnect hwy 130 to Volcano and the other to Hilo will be a shorter distance then the current route. This is the Big Island experience as it happens!
