Property description

The guest house is located in a small, seaside community not far from the Cape Kumakahi lighthouse, at the easternmost point of the Big Island. This is a rural area with beautiful flora . The house is a very comfortable, totally private, 2-story 1500 sq. ft. home with large lanais adjoining both the kitchen and the master bedroom on the 2nd floor. This is a park-like setting with 2 tidal ponds, many palm trees and tropical plantings. Your private tidal-controlled swimming pond (usually about 88 degrees Fahrenheit) with colorful reef fish is in front of the house and has a dock for relaxing and sunbathing. There are only 3 private ponds at rentals in vacationland which are deep enough for swimming. The kitchen lanai which overhangs our front pond is a favorite place for covered outdoor dining. Most quests take all their meals on the pond lanai.

It's a 3 minute walk to the best swimming entry into the famous Wai’ Opae fish preserve tidal ponds (about ½ mile long and several hundred feet wide) which offer the safest swimming and unrivaled scenic snorkeling in east Hawaii. The large interconnected ponds are separated from the open ocean by a reef and are always calm even when the sea beyond the reef is wild.

Accommodations: Warm Springs Guest House has a King sized bed in the master bedroom on the 2nd floor, 2 singles in one downstairs bedroom, and a single in the other downstairs bedroom. There are 2 full baths: 1 on the first floor and another adjoining the master bedroom on the 2nd floor.

Amenities: There is a table with folding umbrella on the dock and a picnic table on the kitchen lanai. The kitchen is fully equipped including, granite counter tops, refrigerator-freezer, large microwave oven (no stove oven), Jenn-Air radiant electric cooktop, coffee maker, coffee grinder, blender, a wide assortment of pots and pans, and an outdoor charcoal barbecue. There is a Wifi computer connection (see amenities) phone, satellite TV, DVD-CD player, and an AM-FM radio.

Linens including beach towels, all household supplies. A washer and dryer are also provided.
Activities: Swimming, snorkeling, skin diving, surfing, and a large public hot pond are all available nearby. Walking and bicycling around Kapoho are safe and pleasant. There are farmer's markets in Pahoa, on the road to Hilo, and in Hilo Town. Lava viewing is often possible from Kalapana (about 10 mi. from Kapoho) or in the National Park (depending on where the lava flows happen to be located at the time) and Volcanoes National Park has many hiking trails in both rain forest and desert environments. Sightseeing possibilities are nearly unlimited.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Beverly is a botanical artist specializing in endemic Hawaiian plant watercolors and tropical themed stained glass commission. My husband (Dallas) is a retired geophysical volcanologist and for many years was on the staff of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.We have lived in on the Big Island for more than 45 years.

Why the Owner Chose Kapoho, Puna District, HI, USA:
We purchased this property for a family weekend retreat because it had the ambience one would expect from a home in the tropics on the coast ... not coldly functional but truly warm, inviting, and comfortable with wonderful ponds in a park-like environment.
