Kapoho house description

This artistic and comfortable Kapoho Beach Lots home is being offered by the owners as a vacation rental for the first time. From the moment you drive into the property, you will be transported to a to another, more peaceful, time and place.

You will be welcomed by our unimpeded view of the ocean from the two wide lanais. Take some time to wander in our tropical garden featuring plumeria, bougainvillea, bamboo, pineapple plants, mango and coconut palms.

This is a perfect home in paradise to enjoy a private and romantic honeymoon, or to renew yourself in a place of beauty, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Our home is located in the serene gated community of Kapoho Beach Lots, located on the far eastern tip of the Big Island of Hawaii.

The living room is light and airy featuring a hundred year old sculpture of Kanon, ceiling fan, and an expansive view of ocean and tropical greenery. The adjoining well-appointed, fully equipped kitchen has views of both the ocean and bay. We know you will be pleased with our extensive array of art. Besides the stone temple statuary of Kanon, you’ll find a framed Hiroshige woodblock print, oil paintings from Costa Rica and Jamaica, photographic prints by John Upton and native Hawaiian tapas.

Fall asleep to the stereophonic sound of the waves wrapping around Alapai Point in the master bedroom. The bedroom features a high quality, firm Cal King sized bed with Egyptian cotton sheets, a view of Kapoho Bay, and a quiet ceiling fan.

While no one wants to work while on holiday, you will find the office a perfect place to catch up on email, research our island or maybe even start that book you’ve been meaning to get going. It is equipped with an antique, oriental desk with a beautiful view of the ocean, wifi, DSL, printer and office supplies. There is a single bed in this room so it could accommodate an additional guest.

Guests in our home can swim in a private snorkeling cove right across the street in Kapoho Bay. Delight in finding the turtles and reef fish in abundance.

Because the owners have found this serene and beautiful place so nourishing to their own creativity, we offer special low pricing for guests who wish to stay for longer than three weeks in order to pursue their own creative project. Enjoy your sabbatical here; write that book proposal.

We can introduce you to Hawaiian guides who can take you to little known sacred sites or traditional fishing spots. We also have customized suggestions for photographing, hiking and swimming in our area. There are plenty of opportunities for good dining in, and around, Pahoa. We can also recommend licensed massage therapists who can come to the home and nearby places to continue, or start, your yoga or reformer Pilates practice.

You will find maps and guides for identifying native birds and fish, tourist information, snorkeling gear, noodles for floating in Champagne Pond, the Warm Pond, the nearby tide pools, or our own proprietary snorkeling cove. A fresh flower arrangement and fruit bowl will be waiting for you at Kapoho Serenity House.

Be sure to check out the Kalani retreat, Champagne Pond, the Waiopae Tidepools Marine Life Santuary (great for snorkeling), the Alahanui Park Hot Spring. Drive to the end of the road in Kalapana and see where the lava last flowed over the highway.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: Tristine Rainer, Ph.D. is a pioneer and expert in journal writing and narrative autobiography. John Upton is a professional photographer and retired teacher.

              Why the Owner Chose Kapoho:
              As we have moved from our teaching careers, we have both found Kapoho Serenity House to be a perfect place to work on our passions. It's peaceful surroundings are nurturing for writing and there is a never a shortage of photographic opportunities for John.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We love to sit on the lanai anytime of the day, watching and listening to the ocean, only a few steps away from our second story home. Our home is blessed with ocean breezes and tastefully decorated with wonderful works of art. The garden is full of tropical flowers and fruit, making a stroll through the grounds a botanical experience.
