Recent Kapaau reviews

  • Charming place with all the amenities of home!

    "My sister, daughter, and I spent a wonderful week in this charming home! The place was exactly as the posting and owner explained (well, even better) and definitely exceeded my expectations. The owners are SUPER responsive and I felt like I could ask anything I needed. The home was clean, organized, and had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves. The Kapaau and Hawi area were so welcoming and full of friendly people. I felt like I got to see what it'd really be like to live in Hawaii rather than just visiting. The owners gave me plenty of great recommendations (Bamboo Restaurant being one - it was great!) and we stumbled upon plenty of other great finds (Sushi Rock was delicious!). This area of the Big Island is very different - much more jungle/rainy than beachy. It was great for exploring and hiking and seeing a different side of Hawaii. Plus, there are beautiful beaches if you take the scenic drive down the coast. Honestly, I couldn't recommend this place enough. It's everything you look for when renting a vacation home, especially with such friendly, helpful, and accommodating owners!"

  • Bamboo Suite at the Akoni Pule Guesthouse

    "My wife & I stayed in the Bamboo Suite at the Akoni Pule Guesthouse to celebrate our 50th anniversary, for two beautiful and relaxing weeks and found it truly was a special piece of paradise. The weather in early October was beautiful with one day of rain in two weeks. Mornings were spent with coffee on the Lanai listening as the distant surf sang its song to the birds. If you want privacy, beauty and a taste of Hawaii this is it. It is far enough north that it private but closes enough to visit the rest of the islands shopping centers, parks and historic sites. The suite had many beautiful native wood furniture pieces, a kitchen large enough for the two of us to prepare meals, which we seldom did, (the food on the island is GREAT and close) and enough sporting equipment for a family. There was a large screen TV, DVD player & DVD’s in the breezeway. There is an all-natural delicious smoothie stand & taco restaurant a short walk away. There is a beach within a 10 minute drive and the outstanding Pollok Valley – Lookout, with its black sand beach 15 minutes away, so bring your camera. Spencer beach Park was our favorite. The towns Kapaau and Hawi were beautiful, quiet and had an assortment of restaurants and native arts & crafts. Be sure to stop at the Nanbu Courtyard in Kapa’au for Carols souvenirs (best prices). The suite is kept in great shape thanks to the owner’s brother who meticulously oversees and maintains it. We will definitely be back. Mahalo to the owner & his family for a great stay"

  • Delightful Retreat

    "We had a lovely time at the Banyan House. The house is delightfully tucked away down a secluded driveway, and we couldn't have been happier with the setting and privacy. The house is clean and comfortable, with a magnificent kitchen, a killer outdoor shower, a stocked closet of beach toys, and endless Lanais. At first we were disappointed with the distance of the ocean view, but we came to enjoy the contrasts of land, water, trees, and sky we could see from the upstairs Lanai. We found the sunny backyard perfect for morning yoga, and spent the evenings eating and talking around the enormous kitchen table. Each morning at the Banyan house brings an absolute cacophony of bird song at dawn. We enjoyed it, but it might be disturbing for some people. The house was ideally located for exploring the wonders of North Kohala. We loved walking the cliffs at Koekea beach park, and the quick access to Pololu Valley and both Kapaau and Hawi town. The drive to the Kohala resort areas and beaches, and up to Waimea wasn't bad. But it was a bit far for trips to Kona, or Hilo/Volcano. We enjoyed being surrounded by the beauty and tropical lushness of North Kohala, but if your vacation plans include the rest of the island, be prepared to spend some time in the car."

  • The Gecko House (they were everywhere...loved it!)

    "We enjoyed our stay and thought the house and property were very nice. The house could use a little maintenance, but none of the issues were major. The house next door was being renovated, so there was a little construction noise during the day, but it was not very loud. If you are going to buy groceries near by go to Takata, I do not recommend Arakaki. The shops/restaurants in Hawi and Kapa'au were nice, we really enjoyed Kohala Coffee Mill. If you are going souvenir shopping I recommend Pacific Nature at the Queen's Shops in Waikoloa, they had a good selection and the prices were much better than shops closer to the house. Our favorite two beaches were Mauna Kea (they allow public beach access next to the resort) and Hapuna Beach State Park (there's a $5.00 entrance fee.) I hope this info helps any future renters."

Kapaau Travel Tips

Kapaau Condos Along the Kohala Coast

Hawaii has been the number one vacation spot for decades. It's peaceful, sandy goodness is what most people dream of escaping to. Crystal blue waters and sunshine all day long -- what more could one ask for? How about a place to sleep while you're there, a kitchen to cook your meals in or a spacious room to chat with friends after a long day of fun?

With Kapaau condos sleeping anywhere from two to 17 people, you can bring the whole family. Even if it's just you, you can avoid all the busy bustle of the hotels during tourist season and just sit back to enjoy your vacation. There are lots of Kapaau condos to pick from too, so planning where you want to explore during your stay is easy. You won't have to drive far.

Great Fishing Opportunities

Kohala Coast vacation rentals can put you where the action is. There are many great fishing opportunities along the Kohala Coast, and you can get in on the chance to create your own "one that got away" tale. Boats like Reel Pleasure can take you out for the best fishing around while you relax on their shaded, air conditioned Viking yacht. They also provide the latest high-tech fishing equipment to ensure you never walk away empty handed.

Types of Vacation Rentals

Kapaau house rentals come in many shapes and sizes and in a variety of styles. Stay in a classic cozy seaside cabin or in a spacious historic plantation home. Either way, you get your money's worth and you get to relax in style. Almost every one of the Kapaau house rentals offers an ocean view and is close to soft sandy beaches. Not only are the houses beautiful and peaceful, they're also in your price range so you will never have to choose style over affordability.
