Experience the famous WaiOpae Tide Pools and Marine Life Conservation District from this VERY PRIVATE OCEANFRONT HOME in sunny Kapoho on the eastern shore of the Big Island of Hawaii! Enjoy this green practices home that only uses eco-friendly products and educates guests about the coral reef and how to protect the bountiful fish and coral species.
Take a few easy steps down from the veranda into our private thermally heated lagoon and the protected inner reef of the WaiOpae tide pools. The 180-degree panoramic coastline views from inside the house, the upper decks and the oceanfront veranda, combined with the easy ocean access, make it a perfect retreat for the active family.
Relax into the sounds and sights of the ocean, ever-changing tide pools, tropical breezes, ocean sunrises and moon rises! Enjoy incredible stargazing over the dark ocean sky. There are no coqui frogs due to being directly on the ocean!
All of the 26 photographs were taken from the property and accurately show the house, property, oceanfront location, and comfortable furnishings. NOTE: Several of the other listings that show up on vrbo when you search for oceanfront or beachfront are NOT on the oceanfront, but instead further inland in the neighborhood and therefor much cheaper.
From the over 200-ft of ocean shoreline on the property, you can float, swim or snorkel in your very own private warm, calm ocean lagoon or swim further out to explore the extensive coral pools. These pools support 11 types of coral, over 113 types of colorful tropical fish, green sea turtles and an occasional monk seal.
These warm WaiOpae tide pools are such incredible fish habitat that they are one of only 11 marine preserves in the entire State! Enjoy the safest and best snorkeling in East Hawaii from this secluded beautiful location.
