Property description

Located across the street from the Waiopae Tidepools Marine Life Conservation area. Great, wide view from the lanai of the tidepools and ocean. Quiet, clean, budget vacation rental, much less expensive than neighboring rentals which have no view. All you need in the way of furnishing, cookware, dinnerware for a comfortable stay. This is a mostly undeveloped coastal area, tropical forest and lava-line coast. Black sand beach and town of Pahoa are ten miles away. The house has two units in a side by side duplex. One is often not rented. The units are mirror images of each other with similar views and furnishings. Both are pictured in the gallery. When you book, inquire as to details of the unit which is available to you. Often both will be available. Both may also be rented together, if available.
If you are interested in a two or three week rental, I will offer a discount from the standard one week rate.

Kapoho Tidepools across the street

Car: Necessary

The eastern tip of the Big Island is unique in Hawaii. Nearby active volcanic eruption has created coastal lava landscapes, lined with tropical forest. Undeveloped beautiful area with miles of hiking along the coast and drives through tropical forest.

The rental is located across street from Kapoho Tidepools Waiopae Marine Sanctuary. Great ocean views and sunrises, from the lanai or cross the street and sit by the tidepools.

The house has been rented via websites other than VRBO. References gladly given if you want to check with previous renters.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Retired, I live 15 minutes away from rental. I am very considerate and ask the same of guests. I book only two persons maximum. I have previously offered only long term rental. Now available only for vacation rentals.

Why the Owner Chose Kapoho:
This is a clean, quiet, budget rental at price much lower than adjacent or nearby vacation rentals. Very few rentals in the area have as good a view or location. A great deal considering view and location. The house is a side by side duplex. Often only one side is rented as a vacation rental. The units are entirely private, with separate staircases and entrances on on opposite sides of carport. Well insulated, no loud music or parties allowed. If you want to book both units, they can be joined by opening the locked door between the lanais (decks). Both units can be booked together in VRBO listing 749734

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Snorkeling and swimming across the street in the Waiopae Tidepools, a marine sanctuary.
