K.C.'S Paradise - Ocean Views and Warm Pond

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,150 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

'Wow' is what you will say when you walk into this ocean view home situated on a hillside in the gated community of Kapoho Beach Lots. It's bright and airy with the afternoon and evening tradewinds blowing through the space.

You will love to lounge on the large covered lanai overlooking the ocean with beautiful sunrises every morning.

Step down the lava rock steps into the warm pond. It's almost like having your own mini fern grotto. This secluded warm pond is thermally heated and keeps a temperature of between 90-92 degrees year round. It's surrounded by ferns, palms and some say, 'healing properties' of the noni plants. The pond is between 3 feet to over 7 feet depending on the tides. (Sorry no fishing in the pond).

Only 1-1/2 blocks, or about a 4 minute walk to the famous Champagne Pond where you can swim with the sea turtles.

The home offers many amenities - two separate bedrooms on each side of the living space, with their own bathrooms. Perfect for two couples! Each bedroom has a queen bed and view of the ocean. One bedroom also has it's own TV/DVD player and a desk, if you just have to work on your vacation.

The large great room has vaulted ceilings, views of the ocean, a dining table for 4 people, a comfortable sofa, two lounge chairs and a large flat screen TV with Direct TV and all the movie and sports channels. Wireless internet is provided.

The kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator/freezer, icemaker and water in the door, electric stove, coffee pot, dishwasher, rice cooker, blender, nice pots and pans, glasses, dishes and cutlery. There is also an indoor laundry area with washer and dryer.

There is a covered carport for two cars. 4 guest maximum. Sorry, no parties.

average rating of 4.8 based on 37 reviews
Eugene, OR

Back again ... we were here for a month last year. :-)

  • 5 of 5

We are back again for a lovely stay at K C's.

The kitchen has lots of stainless pot, pans, and frying pans, which is great, (because previous rentals have had scratched Teflon cookware.) Pat and K C even make sure I have muffin pans.

I enjoy the pond every day, and Champagne Pond occasionally. It is also a very walk-able neighborhood.

Bed is very comfortable.

We have eaten every meal outdoors in the 35 days we have stayed here. We love the lanai.

Roomy, rural house

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week in late March here. House has 2 bedrooms and baths and is on an elevated 2 story platform. House has extra snorkeling gear and fins if needed. House has great airflow to keep house naturally cool. Pantry has some nonperishable items and full cookware options as well as bbq. Easy to get to from Hilo. About 30 mins to ocean lava flow. Small thermally heated pool has some fish in it and Champagne Pond is a few minutes walk away for snorkeling in. 45 min drive to Hilo and 10 min drive to nearest town with services. Be aware that if you plan on a lot of activities on the Kona side, it's a good 2.5 hr drive from the house to get there. Highly recommended vacation rental.

KC's Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was an outstanding location - the house was large and spacious, very well equipped and set up perfectly for two couples. Outside, there is a naturally heated pool which has a therapeutic effect. The famous champagne pool is in walking distance with the volcano only 40 minutes away.

Pat, the owner, was gracious and informative - providing us with the best tasting bananas that we have ever had. We would definitely return!

Just a perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and me stayed in this wonderful house over Christmas and New Year's Day. The house was just perfect, I just can confirm all the positive reviews from earlier visitors to this property.

Thank you, Pat and KC for sharing your wonderful property with us and thank you also to the manager, Jamie for all her support.

We hope to be back soon!

Great house with nice views

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed house and very comfortable for our group of four adults. Well stocked with all of the conveniences and everything you need for activities close by. Plenty of room, beds were very comfortable and the property is very clean. Beautiful location and a short walk to the amazing Champagne Ponds where we were able to swim in the lovely warm water with tropical fish. The pond in the front yard is a novel extra and it was great to relax in there after a day out. Friendly and very helpful owner/manager(s). We would recommend this property to anyone and could easily come back ourselves.

We were thrilled with the house!

Welcoming and clean the house had a lovley open feel. The house was well stocked, had plenty of room, and the beds were comfortable.

A large covered lanai (verandah) provided the perfect place to eat as we watched the night fall across the lovley view.

An easy walk to Champagne pond.

The secluded private tidal pool was the highlight for us.

We were sad to leave this wonderful holiday home.

Thoroughly recommended.
