Kapoho guest house description

Welcome to Mika 'Alua. This fabulous 2-story, ocean front home features spectacular ocean views. Located in sunny Kapoho, it features some of the best snorkeling in the Islands. It is beautifully and comfortably furnished with tile and bamboo floors, and 3 of the 4 bedrooms have ocean views. It has an ocean front jacuzzi and a private pond. You will not believe the amenities. Enjoy a beverage on your private lanai with tropical breezes overlooking the blue Pacific Ocean. It has all you need to make this the ultimate vacation home.

The kitchen abounds with spices, sauces, dry goods, great cookware, and lots of room. Just bring your favorite fresh food. An ultra quality stainless steel barbecue is available for cooking that fish you just caught. An exquisite master bedroom with lanai overlooks ocean. You will say Wow!!

Snorkeling, fishing, star gazing, sight seeing, black sand beach, and warm ponds. The Puna area in Kapoho is one of the most spectacular sites on the island for that old Hawaii feeling. Lots to do, lots to see. Only one hour away from Volcano Village and Kilauea Volcano.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: When Noi and I first visited the Big Island together, he exclaimed, 'I didn't know a place like this existed in the US!' Noi was originally from Thailand. The green lushness, blue water, the abundant exotic tropical fruits and flowers had him convinced this is where we needed to be. I concur.

                  Why the Owner Chose Kapoho:
                  Mika 'Alua is located in a very special marine conservancy. It has some of the best snorekling in the Hawaiian Islands. Mika 'Alua is a charming house, at ocean level, and it exudes tropical charm.
