Kapoho house description

Caressed by ocean breezes. Lulled by gentle waves. Ever-changing skies with spectacular clouds, glorious sunrises, multitudes of stars. Away from the bustle of town in a small beachfront residential community. Surrounded by peace and tranquility. Original art, sculpture pieces, oriental carpets. Luxury touches at a very affordable price. Secure WiFi broadband internet connection throughout the house.

The best snorkeling in East Hawaii is just a few steps away at the Wai 'Opae Marine Sanctuary. Reefs break the waves beyond the tide pools so even small children can float in the calm waters and see the multitude of colorful tropic fish.

It is the perfect spot for a few days or a long term stay.

The house is up on stilts with all living areas on the second floor, accessible by stairs. You can relax outdoors on the lanai gathering area or sit in the living room and enjoy the fresh salt air through the two french doors that open the living room to the lanai. The private garden below has fragrant Plumeria, bananas and pineapple.

Both bedrooms also face the ocean. The master bedroom with a queen bed opens on to the enclosed end of the lanai and features an outdoor shower accessible from the lanai or from the bedroom. It also has a private bath with a classic claw-foot tub and laundry facilities (full size washer and dryer), and a walk in closet. The loveseat in the master bedroom unfolds to a double foam bed. The second bedroom has a double bed and is across from the hall bath with stall shower.

The kitchen features a gas stove and includes all needed for preparing family meals, simple to elaborate.
The dining table can be expanded to seat 6.
Every room has a fan, cross ventilation and guide lights for comfort and safety.

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Prop mgr/owner is a retired college teacher and counselor who also spent some years as a chef after retiring from school. Wife is a CPA practicing locally in Pahoa. We love our Kapoho home and take pride in presenting one of the best rentals in the area for an affordable price.

                      Why the Owner Chose Kapoho:
                      We love to snorkel and watch the fishes, and Wai 'Opae is one of the best sites on the Island, certainly the best in E. Hawaii.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The sound of the breakers and the sea breezes are primo for relaxing and soothing the spirit. The outdoor shower is another amenity that provides an entrancing evening experience. It's always hard to leave every time we go to Kahi Ko 'Ola Uhane.
