Why Paula Uusitalo chose Kapoho

We purchased the land in 1984, built the house in two phases, 1992 and 1998. It was wonderful to be able to raise the kids there during the years before high school. Swimming in Champagne Pond and quiet community was wonderful.

What a great escape! If you love to be near the

water and love to snorkel and explore, come on and

stay at this wonderful house.

The best snorkeling on the Big Island is here with

the Champagne Pond two blocks away and a view

from the deck like nothing other in the early

morning and at night. Stars for days and days to be

a star in this great retreat. If you like remote, this is

for you. Pahoa, which is about 20 mins away has

some great restaurants and a cash only market and

a great natural foods store. This place is changing

like crazy, so get there before the natural life is all

lost. Last 'real' Hawaii is here.

The conservation area, which is a short walk or

drive, is spectacular with snorkeling pools of

splendor. Coral and sealife everywhere.

Watch the tides so you know when to see the sea

turtles in the Champagne Pond. They come and go

with the high tide.

You'll sleep like a baby here, with the winds and

rain that happen to pass in the evening and early

morning.

Too splendid for your get away. Enjoy.

Wonderful place to stay in Kapoho Beach Lots

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Paula's house! We were a group of 6, and had plenty of room. It was very easy to communicate with Paula and to arrange check-in. The house itself is super convenient to Champagne Pond, but tucked up on a slope and very private. We liked the house particularly because it was so open and quiet and simple: no overdone loud "Hawaiian" decor! The huge deck was fantastic! Our only suggestion would be blinds or shades for the sliding doors to keep the house cooler during the day, and solid doors on the bathrooms- it's a bit awkward to be more or less open to the living room while in both bathrooms. Otherwise, it was a great stay- falling asleep to the breeze and the coqui frogs at night is pure bliss! Thank you for a lovely stay Paula!

Beautiful vacation with the family!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for my 'ohana visiting from California during the New Year's holiday. The house comfortably housed her family of 2 parents and 3 children. When we stayed over one night, me and partner had a large sofa bed to sleep on. Paula was a gracious host, who even met me at my work in Hilo to deliver the keys and instructions. The home comes with its own personal warm pond, which the kids loved! We drove to nearby Kapoho Tide Pools for a day of amazing snorkeling. Ideal vacation home for a family with kids, who are looking for safe swimming and snorkeling options.

Well kept. All the amenities were provided. The only problem was that the weather didn't cooperate.
