Quiet and Clean, Off the beaten Path
"This little house is great. Our family of 4 (kids 6 and 8) stayed for 3 nights. It's clean and comfortable. The proximity to the tide pools (which are gorgeous) can't be beat. It doesn't have air conditioning, but fans help, and we were not too hot. It's about 20 minutes away from any shopping or restaurants. The fish in the pond were fun to watch. The frogs were loud, but part of staying in this forested area. We did see a few geckos in the house, which may be why we didn't see any bugs in the house."

"We are a family of 3 and this cottage was the perfect amount of space for us. It was so much fun to swim in the beautiful ocean outside your back door. The geothermal "pools" are just spectacular! Bring your own snorkel gear. We were in the water everyday checking out all the beautiful fish. Many people pay good money to get a snorkeling trip like the one in your own backyard. We saw tons of beautiful fish everyday and even swam beside 2 Sea Turtles! It was truly spectacular! House was well stocked with towels and everything that was needed. The master bedroom is very small and the bed not too comfy. But the second room of 2 bunks (4 beds) was great. If you are a family of 4 or 5 this is still plenty of space. It's a cute funky beach cottage and we LOVED every second. If you are not big on lizards and geckos you may be a little squeamish! However, we LOVED seeing all the geckos outside and in the house. There was one in particular that must live behind the cupboards in the kitchen. Numerous times we gently removed it from the house and every time it wound up back inside. My 7 year old daughter just adored catching and releasing geckos. It was hours of entertainment. Lots of crabs down in the "pool" too. She loved seeing them and we did catch one baby one while there to check out and release. The crabs are really quick. They don't like humans and move out of sight when you get near. So again nothing to worry about if your not a big animal lover like we are.
The only negative was that along side of this property is the public access route. So there is a constant stream of people walking alongside your property to access the pools as well. We stayed Monday through Thursday which I'd consider the slow part of the week and there was still a steady flow of people each day. So it wasn't really as private as I would've liked but guess that's the price you pay to be somewhere as gorgeous as this. Others want to see it too :) We'll be back! Mahalo!"

"Our experience at the Kapoho cottage was spectacular. We went with our 2 boys (7 and 3) to celebrate our 7 year olds birthday.
Not only was the cottage cute and comfortable including everything we needed, but the property was beautiful, and the owners were very friendly and welcoming. The warm water made up for the chilly and lightly windy weather on our first day, and we stayed in the pond all day until dark. It was nice to have access to the private pond as it was clean and safe for our children. We brought bread with us and fed the fish everyday. I suggest tabis or water shoes especially for children as the algae can make the steps at the main entrance of the pond very slippery.
Our boys would complain every time we had them come out of the water to eat or to call it a day when it was getting dark. They kept saying how they wished they could live there and how it felt like home. We were so sad to leave and we cannot wait to go back for another visit!"

"Well appointed house and very comfortable for our group of four adults. Well stocked with all of the conveniences and everything you need for activities close by. Plenty of room, beds were very comfortable and the property is very clean. Beautiful location and a short walk to the amazing Champagne Ponds where we were able to swim in the lovely warm water with tropical fish. The pond in the front yard is a novel extra and it was great to relax in there after a day out. Friendly and very helpful owner/manager(s). We would recommend this property to anyone and could easily come back ourselves."
