  • Your Own Piece of Paradise

    "Some places are just so special and magical that my tendency is not to share the place with others for fear it will not be available again when my husband and I want to visit! The drive to the bungalow was incredible, in and of itself. Beauty, nature, wild, raw, open, sweet smelling, awe inspiring are just a few words that explain just the excursion to this special destination. When we arrived we regarded the house number on a solid tropical wooden gate (it seemed majestic to us), stopped the car , looked at each other and said ‘this CAN’T be the place !?” I told my husband to use the clicker and the solid wood gate slowly opened up, welcoming us to our home for the next week. We drove well onto the property and next to the house then the gate slowly closed behind us. Wow! Having stepped out of the car we looked upon expansive lush lawns, gardens and blooming plumerias. The bungalow looked just like the pictures! So far we were impressed and equally so at sight of the sparkling cove in front of us, beckoning us to just jump in, right then and there! Instead, we went inside and found a spacious great room with lots of windows, beautiful hard wood furnishings and tropical décor. We just couldn’t help but keep pinching ourselves as we opened up all the doors and windows to let the fresh sea air and tradewinds fill the rooms. We noticed the bathroom, tastefully done with a murano glass bowl sink and roomy tiled shower full of natural light. The bungalow had everything we needed (we stocked up at Safeway in Hilo before coming to our destination) to make this our temporary home. My husband and I slept like babies on the generous king bed and we were well rested each morning. The first night the Coqui frogs were many and prevalent but they apparently cleared out once they understood we were there. Subsequent nights we looked forward to the sound of only a few Coquis lulling us to sleep, along with the lapping waves against the cove. Comfy living room, comfy counter stools and large counters…loved being able to just sit inside or out and gaze upon the surf in the bay beyond the cove. We sipped coffee and cocktails at the lanai table every morning and evening. Nice to be able to sit outside under the covered lanai while it rained and also provided ample shade during hot days. There were lots of tropical fish in the cove, which could be seen by just sitting on the wall. We took dips each night with a bright full moon showing the way. Wonderful!"

  • Great place to relax

    "This was our 2nd stay at the Pond House and we will be back. We love everything about this place - the warm pool in the backyard, the outdoor shower, the comfy layout and furnishings, the covered lanai. It is a just a short walk to the Kapoho Tidepools. Loved the quiet, the sounds of birds, the privacy. The fans worked well, we were very comfortable. The water toys and beach shoes were great to have. Absolutely love this house!"

  • A wonderful, tranquil, waterfront, Tidepool, swimming, snorkeling, relaxing paradise!!!!!!

    "Myself & my wife have been renting the Oceanfront Cottage for yrs. Usually 2 to 3 months at a time. It has such a remarkable location situated on the Tidepool. The view over not only the Tidepool, but also seeing and hearing the surf, just adds to one's vacation/getaway. I tell my friends that just below the outside deck, I can swim with turtles and enjoy being in my own aquarium. To be able to see so many fish, corals, and other assorted sea life at arms length is something that you will remember FOREVER!!! The cottage itself is cute and provides you with everything one needs to enjoy the area. Only about 35 miles from Hilo, a little over 2 hours from Kona and the volcano is about an hour away. Just 1 mile down scenic 'red road' there is a park with an acre warm pond heated naturally and kept at a perfect temperature by the surf. There is bus service, but a car is really best to enjoy the entire Puna area. We highly recommend a stay at the cottage if one decides on the Big Island as their destination. Even though we live here now, we continue to rent the Oceanfront Cottage as 'OUR' very special getaway! Very enjoyable memories continue to happen here! Seeing the constellation of 'The Southern Cross' from the deck to watching rainbows out over the water, to the fabulous sunrises and sunsets...., all...., only from this very small cluster of homes. There is no other place like this, in the entire USA. The cottage is perfect, and experience Aloha first hand from the management team, Mark, Ron & Jeana. You will NOT be disappointed...... Mahalo,"

Kapoho Travel Tips

Escape to Paradise With Kapoho Vacation Rentals

Kapoho vacation rentals take you away from the stress of life and place you in the heart of an area surrounded by natural beauty. Less than hour from Hilo Airport on the Big Island of Hawaii, Kapoho has many stunning features to wow your senses. From flowing lava to whale watching, you can find something amazing to see. When you rent a vacation house in Kapoho, you'll have the privacy and the space you need to relax.

Kapoho Vacation Houses Offer Family Fun

From multiple bedrooms to furnished living space, Kapoho vacation houses have the home amenities your family uses every day. Fully equipped kitchen areas give you the chance to gather around for a family meal. If you plan to visit Queen Liluokalani Gardens, pack a picnic to enjoy at one of the pagodas. The 30-acre Japanese garden features walkways, ponds, bridges, and oriental plants. If your family members prefer swimming, head to the tide pools. Protected by coral reefs, these thermal pools offer calm water perfect for children.

The Power of Nature Resides Near Puna District Beach Rentals

There are many things to enjoy during your stay at Puna District beach rentals. Nearby Rainbow State Falls offers an 80-foot waterfall. Its early morning mist often creates a rainbow that spans across the lagoon. Just a little distance from the waterfall, you'll find the Boiling Pots, a series of cascading pools. Watch flowing lava make its way to the ocean, see dolphins play with their young, or soak up some rays while laying on a lava shelf. Surrounded by lush vegetation, you can enjoy the scent of exotic flowers and the tastes of fresh tropical fruits. Crystal clear water lets you see schools of fish, moray eels, sea turtles, and multi-colored coral reefs.
