About the Property

2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 4

Enjoy the Tradewinds flowing through this Island Style house. Just a few steps from WaiOpae's famous snorkeling ponds, this home offers lovely furnishings and comfort in this unique coast-side setting.

The house is designed to accommodate couples or a small family with spacious lanais extending the living areas. The bedrooms include a comfortable king and queen beds plus a queen size 'pun-ea' (daybed) on the lanai for outdoor naps or sleeping. In addition to the 2 full baths there is a refreshing outdoor shower.

The kitchen is fully stocked for simple meals or elaborate gourmet dining. Also provided is satellite TV (with a selection of DVD movies) and wireless internet for your convenience.

This pristine setting on Hawaii's East side is close to Volcanoes Nationa Park, the quaint and historic towns of Hilo and Pahoa, the geothermal Ahalanui warm pond, as well as many colorful sites along the beautiful "Red Road". Located a few miles from Pahoa's restaurants and shops or another 1/2 hour to Hilo's bayfront parks, golf courses, museums and farmers market.


Enjoy swimming, snorkeling, endless walks or explore miles of coastline on foot, bicycle or car. Experience unspoiled Old Hawaii along the Red Road. Or visit nearby Volcano National Park and (if Pele shows off) see lava flowing into sea viewed by air (helicopter), land (hike in) or by lava boat. This is a 'Bucket List' experience!

Sunny Kapoho is located along the coast, 8 miles east of the quaint town of Pahoa. This stylish new vacation home is steps away from the water at Wai Opae Marine Preserve offering visitors fabulous snorkeling. This is the perfect location to stage daytrips around East Hawaii including the Volcano Visitor and Art Center. Or explore ancient Hawaiian sites along the 'Red Road' south to Kalapana. On the way, relax at Ahalanui Park's warm pond, natural thermally heated pool overlooking the rugged coastline. Or stretch your body and mind at Kalani Honua Cultural Center and Retreat. Finally, a Must-Experience: the ongoing creation of our island; lava flowing into sea may be viewed by air, by land or by sea.

Other Activities: lava viewing

Golf: Four courses within an hour of Wai Opae.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are pleased to share our vacation home with visitors to WaiOpae. We make this our home for a few months each year to enjoy the unspoiled LAST BEST PLACE in Hawaii. Now retired we enjoy the contrast between our home near Big Sky, Montana and the lush, tropical setting of Wai Opae by the sea. Both homes allow us to live connected with the natural environment and play hard.

Why the Owner Chose Kapoho, Puna District, HI, USA:
After many years visiting the Big Island we finally found just the right spot to build our island getaway. Wai Opae is a unique place; off the beaten path in a friendly community of year round residents and visitors. Situated on the edge of the beautiful marine preserve, we enjoy fabulous snorkeling every day!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Wai Opae is all about restoring the spirit, body and soul. There is something about living (or vacationing) on the edge of this island, in the shadow of an active volcano, that keeps us in touch with Hawaii as the ancients knew and loved it. Located in rural Puna district Wai Opae is the a great starting point for adventures around the island!
