Recent Kapoho reviews
"Mon, Mar 2, just returned from 2 wk. stay upstairs in Cedar House at Wai'Opae tide pools. Fantastic variety of fish, great numbers present. Best snorkeling with previous experience over 60 years in south FL from Biscayne to Dry Tortugas, Baja, Costa Rica, Eleuthera, -- just wow. Only Galapagos was better in variety & #s, but we covered a lot more territory there. Wear shoes to get in off the rocks, then put on your short fins. So many places to explore. Quarters are really nice, good layout, 2 bed/2 bath with room for extras if needed. Kitchen is really workable. All appliances work (some VRBOs have problems). Wonderful lanai all around upper floor, quiet n'borhood. Very safe. Convenient to Hawaii Volcanoes NP, Pahoa, Hilo. No AC, but with several sliders (which we left open to locked screens at night) and fans it is comfortable. Winds at beginning of our stay knocked out a lot of power lines. We put everything in the freezer for 36 hours; had no losses. Housekeeper checked on us. Cell service in house spotty, but WIFI is good. A supply of shoes and snorkel gear has been left by prior visitors. Great reference guides as well. We liked sharing the house with geckos. Four adults visited in February 2015. Two of us will return as soon as we can.
Hope this helps. Sue"

"We stayed four nights at this very cozy home in Kapoho and had a wonderful time. The owner, Patty, was very kind and helpful, yet not overbearing in any way. The house is pretty easy to get to, approximately 45 minutes from Hilo in a gated community. It's a very cozy, spacious home with comfortable beds and a full kitchen. It was quiet at night, and very relaxing. There's a nice snorkeling spot less than a 5 minute walk down the street. Highly recommended!"

"We immediately fell in love with the arrival in the house. It has a lot of charm and is very tastefully decorated. The kitchen is huge. The covered porch is a dream, just like the view. On listening to the birdsong morning, just wonderful. The whole booking process was very friendly and very well documented.
Will be back soon!
We hope we can come again. Much obliged."

An authentic Hawaiian home that is true to its environment
"We came as two moms for a girls trip with our combined four daughters aged 7 to 16. It was the first of three locations we stayed on our Hawaiian adventure, and an excellent low-key place to acclimate, explore and relax. The kitchen is well-stocked, and the house is 15-20 minutes to town, so we made simple meals but also enjoyed area pizza and poke. The kids didn't tire of walking to the wai'opae tide pools to cool off and enjoy snorkeling a high and low tides, or just chasing crabs. We loved listening to the rain on the roof, showering on the lanai, and chasing after the little geckos. It was very convenient for our volcano adventure day. With two bedrooms, two baths and a couch, we had lots of room."
