  • Faultless

    "We stayed here for fourteen nights over the 2014/2015 new year period, and it was hard to go home. Kai Malolo is very well appointed that it's hard to understand how such a property can be available in this price range. The house can sleep six in three double bedrooms (I'm not completely sure what size the beds are, don't quote me on this), and has two bathrooms - one with two sinks - Europeans would be use to a bathroom with one sink, but I think in the US two vanity units counts as a full bathroom. Both also contain a shower, in addition there is a home office with printer and wired internet connection and a walk-in closet in another of the rooms. Laundry is kept in a separate room with a writing bureau; and the rest of the house is an open-plan format sharing the lounge and dining area with a kitchen separated through an island. A lanai runs along the rear length of the property allowing for viewing of the whales in the bay area but does not offer direct access to the garden/walk to the coastline. Additionally the garage for the property contains bikes, snorkelling gear and fishing equipment covering most of the activities you may like to do. The pool house has a variety of floats and inflatables for younger or less confident swimmers. The pool area is also completely fenced off so safe if you have little ones wandering around. Our stay was very relaxing. From the first day we were stunned at how quiet the area is - there is literally no noise. The little-used access road is so far from the house that traffic can barely be heard and the neighbours, those closeby, are very respectful with regards to noise (the exception being their dog Rags who does like to make sure the area is well guarded, but I was thankful to know we were at no risk of anything sneaking up on us! He is a very friendly and loveable great beast though). As for facilities inside, almost everything was catered for - there is a great entertainment system, plentiful towels and sheets, a fully stocked kitchen. We even had a running challenge to work out what we *didn't* have and the only thing we found we needed was a pizza wheel ;) The house was spotless, none of the usual insect problems you can have in Hawaii. We really struggled to come up with any downsides to this place: the pool was chilly, the access road is bumpy - neither of which are the owner's fault. Will definitely stay again! Note: property has stairs to the door and is not really suited to disabled access."

  • Snorkeller's Dream! Great spot to explore this less-developed side of the island!

    "We absolutely loved waking up to such great views! You can enjoy the tidepools from just about everywhere in the house, but of course the best part is swimming in them! The house is nicely finished, decorated, and supplied with everything you could need from kitchen stuff to beach towels to coolers and more. The layout is a little quirky with the exterior stair, but hey this is a vacation home in Hawaii; lots of things in Hawaii are outdoors because they CAN BE! We enjoyed being a little bit off the beaten path in such a beautiful area of the island, but having great access to Volcano, Pahoa, and Hilo."

  • Great house and wonderful location

    "The house was in a great location just steps away from the tide pools and also a big lagoon with terrific snorkeling. The house itself was very comfortable and nice with a huge deck. We did not use the grill but made good use of the full size washer/dryer."

  • Home away from home

    "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!"
