One of the premier vacation homes in one of the Big Island's premier vacation spots, Champagne Cove at Kapoho Beach features 4 bedrooms plus 2 dens on 2 floors, accommodating from 2 to 10 very lucky guests. The home is known for its huge private in-ground swimming pool, adjacent barbecue area, and garden surroundings, all for your exclusive use as a Champagne Cove guest. Famous Champagne Pond, a crystal-clear Pacific Ocean lagoon sheltered from the surf that provides incredible snorkeling and swimming, is only a 3-minute walk away.
See for yourself.
Groups of 6 or less rent the top main floor of Champagne Cove with the main living, dining and kitchen areas, a completely enclosed wraparound lanai with a panoramic ocean and pool view, 2 bedrooms with king & double bed, and 1.5 baths. Groups of 6 or less may obtain access to the ground-floor Ohana for an additional fee. Groups of 7 or more have use of the ground-floor portion of Champagne Cove called the Ohana, with another living and dining area, kitchen, 2 more bedrooms with king & double beds, and another 1.5 baths.
Champagne Cove is completely and comfortably furnished to supply all of your home-away-from-home needs. Cook in one of the beautiful kitchens while you gaze at the Pacific Ocean through the 30-plus palm trees. Outdoor dining with shade umbrellas for poolside lounging makes for an unforgettable stay. The outdoor charcoal barbecue faces the pool and is adjacent to the outdoor shower that is a must for everyone to try at least once. In the pool you can view the waterfall and the 12-foot mural of "Hilo Town" at the same time. Look for its artist "Arenzo" who is also the gardener and ask him about his work and his life; it is worth the wait.
You can see whales off-shore (in season) and sea turtles visit year 'round. Don't miss the 3-mile drive to the popular geothermally heated pond called Ahalanui (the "Hot Pond"). At night you can view the cruise ships passing in the night or enjoy one of the televisions. You are "connected" while at Champagne Cove through both hard-wired and wireless DSL connections. Champagne Cove has a local massage therapist "on call" and an on-site massage table for your use.
Nothing compares with the old Hawaii feeling in downtown Hilo and great kindness reflected by the neighbors and the natives of this lush area. Being only a few miles from Kalapana and being able to see the lava enter the ocean is another wonderful attraction. Champagne Cove is located less than a mile from the old town of Kapoho and the lighthouse on the point is a reminder of times gone by. The nearby picturesque town of Pahoa has an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants, some with live music and all filled with aloha.
Champagne Cove gets sunrises like you never imagined, and even though the sun sets on the other side of the island, the sky over Kapoho comes alive with spectacular colors! This is truly an awesome place. Kapoho is the warmest, sunniest spot on the windward side of the island. It often gets sun when it is raining in Hilo. Here you will experience beauty and tranquility with a rare taste of lovely "old Hawaii." W40946410-01

About: Carol and Greg have worked together in a family business for 25 years and have two properties in the vacation rental pool: Champagne Cove in Kapoho and Pacific Grove Cottage in Pacific Grove, California, next to Monterey.
Why Kapoho: We choose Kapoho because we were told it is located in a 'banana belt' on the Hilo side, which means we have sun often when it is raining in Hilo. We bought Champagne Cove because of the 180-degree oceanfront views and the huge swimming pool with the lava rock fountain that frames the Pacific Ocean.
Of course, the hot ponds with the large turtles and the ability to have a house where you can watch the cruise ships pass in the night through the palm trees was a huge draw.
Nothing compares with the old Hawaii feeling in downtown Hilo and great kindness reflected by the neighbors and the natives of this lush area. Being only a few miles from Kalapana and being able to see the lava enter the ocean is another wonderful attraction to the area. Our house is located less than a mile from the old town of Kapoho and the lighthouse on the point reminds us of times gone by.
We look forward to retiring to our dream home in a few years but for now paradise can be rented!
The Unique Benefits at this House: This beautiful 2-story home looks out at the ocean with 180-degree sweeping views of the Pacific. The ocean is complemented with a view that includes the 9-foot deep pool with two shallow areas for children. The outdoor barbecue faces the pool and is adjacent to the outdoor shower that is a must for everyone to try at least once.
In the pool you can view the waterfall and the 12-foot mural of “Hilo Town” at the same time. If your stay includes a Thursday look for our artist “Arenzo” who is also our gardener and ask him about his work and his life; it is worth the wait.
Cook in our beautiful kitchens while you gaze at the Pacific Ocean through our 30-plus palm trees. At night you can view the cruise ships passing in the night or enjoy some television in one of four locations in the house. You are “connected” while at Champagne Cove through both hard-wired and wireless DSL connections.
We have a local massage therapist “on call” and we have our own table for your use. Swim in Champagne Pond and enjoy ocean fishing or swimming just steps from our door.
Don’t miss the 2-mile drive to the public hot ponds and after dipping continue on your way to Kalapana for 5-o’clock walk to the lava flow. Remember to bring good shoes, a flashlight, some water and a camera. Bring a wee bit of cash and talk to the artists in their tents that line the parking lot on the way to the lava flow.
In the evening go to Pahoa town and stop at Kaleo’s for dinner. Many nights there is live music but every night there is great food and a wonderful bar and the warm air is filled with aloha.
Champagne Cove is your home base while you explore these and other wonders in Hawaii. You are in the real Hawaii now and we welcome you with Aloha to our home.
