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 cleansing 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.
Cowrey shells and coral have been deposited by the recent storms.
Photograph, fish, whale watch, catch the pods of spinner dolphins and sea turtles bobbing in the surf. Whales and dolfins come in close for great viewing.
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 from the reef 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.

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. An ICU nursing background with complimentary medicine interests. I have always wanted to be involved with healing through natural means. To connect western technology & medicine with the mind body connection. This teaches us that environment can be great medicine for someone with a stressful lifestyle. Mermaid's Oasis offers a respite from the daily grind and 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. Kalani health retreat less than 1 mile away teaches art, yoga, hula, cocnut and lahala weaving , 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.
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. There is a kayak and a paddleboard to rent along with the snorkel equipment, boogie boards etc. to use free of charge. 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 Puna. DISCLOSURE: This is a lava zone 2. The lava flows on this Island which many people are counting on when visiting. The flow is stopped and not progressing for many months. The alternate routes have been done in case of future needs. Insurance and mortgage companies are offering sales in the areas of the previous threat. There are 9,000 residents who all need a route to do commerce here. I know of 2 alternate routes 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!
