Overview

About the property

" Lani mai Honua Hale" translates to Heaven on Earth. That is what we hope you will find when you unlock the front door of our beautiful "old Hawaiian" home and walk in. This is a good time to take a few seconds and stop, set your bags down, take a deep breath and let your soul catch up a little. Think of this as more than just a vacation.....

This house was originally built in the early seventies at a time when neighbors were few and far between in this part of the island. We purchased it in 2014 after it had sat vacant for many years. For the next three years we completely renovated it from top to bottom updating every surface while honoring its original Hogan style design. Along the way we salvaged and repurposed everything we could and incorporated those things into its current incarnation.

Everything is designed to make your time here as comfortable as possible. We have gone out of our way to provide all the simple comforts to make your stay as easy and relaxing as it can be. When you get here, take off your shoes, grab an ice cold drink from the fridge and walk out to the Lanai. The tidal pond from the picture is right there. Go down and sit on the steps and put your feet in the water. Your vacation just started. Enjoy!

Mahalo,

Bill & Linda

Notes:
There is NO air conditioning in our home as is the case for the vast majority of homes on the moist east side of the island. The houses on this side have to "breath" so we have installed solar powered vent fans in the attic space and ceiling fans in every room to move the air. We also keep all the louvered windows open at all times to allow the cool trade winds to blow through. There are 3 ceiling fans in the Lanai as well for the warm afternoons. This combinations keeps the house comfortable. In the winter months you might even need to pull up the blankets at night.

A perfect fit in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Words can hardly describe the care and detail that has gone into this lovely house! The owners have thought of everything guests may need or want. We felt at home immediately, appreciating both the indoor and outdoor spaces, nooks to read in, the al fresco shower and, of course, the pond. Many memories were made morning, afternoon, and at dusk outside counting butterflies and playing catch in the water. Thank you so much for helping us close out 2017 with such a special family trip. This has to be the best home near the tide pools!

Owner's Response: The biggest complement anyone could give us is that they felt at home when they first step through the front door. We are so pleased to have a family like yours enjoy their holidays in our little corner of paradise. I hope the Kapoho spirit stays with you and yours for years to come. Mahalo Bill & Linda

Truly Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Kapoho at this amazing home. The location could not be better....steps to the tide pools while being surrounded by a lush private yard and your own private geothermal pool that is the best swimming pool. The amount of outdoor living space made for lovely breakfasts listening to the birds and watching the butterflies and lazy relaxing evenings listening to the frogs. The house itself was gorgeous and so comfortable.

Tranquility and Beauty

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing home, that has been designed with an eye for detail and beauty. It has an amazingly well equipped kitchen. Truthfully there is nothing that hasn’t been considered or thought of. There is a huge tv monitor for DVDs and Netflix(no network channels, sorry football Fans). The colour scheme is perfect. It rained 6 out of 7 days and we still want to come and stay here again. So peaceful!

Obviously built with genuine care, this property is more than you could ask for!!

  • 5 of 5

This is undoubtedly the nicest property in the neighborhood. Custom to the hilt. Descriptions don't do it justice. We did run short on hot water one morning with 4 adults showering, which is literally the only negative take away from the entire experience. Short walk to the beautiful tide pools. My family did not want to leave. Even though there are neighboring properties, this place is so well landscaped that it felt like we were on our own island. Truly a little heaven on earth! Thanks Bill and Linda for the blood sweat and tears that clearly went into this reno, and thanks for the Mermaid ponds tip as well!

A beautiful home with gorgeous landscaping and warm pond!

  • 5 of 5

A most comfortable home with both indoor and outdoor living spaces that were immaculate. We spent most of our time there enjoying the lani and warm pond. The water in the pond was so clean and clear! The beds were very comfortable. We felt so at home and didn’t want to leave. A short walk to the tidal pools and the gorgeous sunrise. We will definitely stay there again!

Owner's Response: Linda and I are so glad that you and your family had such a nice time staying at our home. I'm especially happy that you got up to see the amazing sunrise from the inlet. That is a place of true peace for me. Mahalo
