Kapoho estate description

(Call the owner at 323-627-7521 for more information)

THIS WORLD FAMOUS PROPERTY has appeared on many television shows, featured in international travel publications, and leased by world-renown celebrities. Here is a retreat with a beauty and atmosphere unmatched anywhere on the island; an irreplaceable sanctuary to soothe the soul and experience Old Hawaii living at its best.

HIDDEN ALONG THE SUNNY SHORES OF KAPOHO, Shangri-La's four enchanting Bali cottages rest on your own private, crystal-clear, naturally heated bathing lagoon. Beneath lush coconut and tropical palms, the healing waters average 90 degrees year-round and are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, or therapeutic bathing. There are also thousands of tropical fish to entertain you.

JUST OUTSIDE THE VOLCANIC ROCK WALLS SURROUNDING THE ESTATE, you can snorkel with sea turtles in one of the Pacific's richest and most protected wildlife preserves. Or, take a 15-minute drive to historic old Pahoa and sample some of the island's most eclectic boutique shops and restaurants.

The Shangri-La Compound is a collection of unique structures:

ROUND HOUSE: A 700-square-foot Bali-style structure for yoga, meditation, exercise, massage, meetings, entertaining, or just relaxing in front of the TV. There is also a full-size bed.

THE PAVILION: A full-amenities kitchen, 2 bedrooms with king beds, and 2 baths. The larger bath is outdoor tropical-style with a sunken Jacuzzi tub, sauna and shower.

THE ISLAND BEDROOM: Open to the tropical breezes, this unique Bali Hut features a Full bed on its own separate island beneath the stars.

THE GUEST HOUSE: A lovely private cottage perched just above the lagoon at the edge of the property. Features a Queen bed, kitchenette, dining area, outdoor bath and large deck.

GUESTS RAVE ABOUT SHANGRI-LA! Jeff from Michigan wrote this in the guestbook and loved Shangri-La so much he's available for prospective renters to contact:

'Our stay at Shangri-La was a vacation of a life time!! The no hassel environment was just perfect. I don't think I can stay at a hotel ever again. We loved taking the early morning swims in our private naturally heated lagoon. The privacy of the estate is a wonderful freeing feeling. You get the sensation that you are in your own exclusive piece of heaven. The proximity of the tidal pools was so close that we could go every day. Their beauty is spectacular, words can't describe the experience. I thnk only a painters brush could do it justice. Ever since we returned home I can only think, when can I go back for another trip to the Big Island and stay at Shangri-La. Loved it, loved it, loved it!!!'
