Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Aloha and Welcome to Nanea Kai. We are very proud to share our 1,800 sqr. ft. island style home with you. As you drive past your wooden sun carved gates, you will enter into your own private sanctuary.Our family living room is made up of Hawaii's prized Koa wood. Many windows let the cool breeze through as well as EACH room has its own ceiling fan. Our large kitchen is a great gathering spot and has a granite counter island that everyone can gather around. As you walk out onto the wrap around entertainment deck, you will look into the 1,500 sqr. ft. thermal heated swimming pond. Our pond ranges from 2ft.- 10 f. at the deepest spot. This pond is fed from under ground springs from the ocean so it rises and falls with the tide.This is also a great filtering system that keeps the water very clean and clear and with a temperature that is normally in the 80's. This makes snorkeling in the pond a pleasure. We do supply some snorkeling equipment as well as a hot/cold out side shower. If you take a right outside our drive way, you will see a tunnel of trees which leads to tide pools as well as the breathtaking view of the ocean. Walk another 6 minutes and your will be at the Wai' Ope Fish Reserve. See so many colorful fish as well as the different colored corals. This is Not a place you will find packed with people. A 5 minute drive will take you to Ahalanui warm springs park . Pahoa is a 15 minute drive with quaint restaurants and to do your marketing. Hilo Town is 30 minutes away where you can visit the farmers market with all its exotic fruits for sale as well as souvenirs, surf shops, restaurants, diving rentals , ect.. Across the street is a black sand beach were you can watch the canoe teams practice or walk and look for beach glass. Then theres the Volcano National Park you want to visit. Walk through lava tubes and see the steam vents. The Volcano Golf course is right above the park as well as the Volcano Winery. If its night time lava cascading down the volcano you want to see, thats about a 20 minute drive from our home. Viewing is free and it opens to the public at 5 p.m. Bring a jacket, flashlight (theres some at the house) and water. Park rangers are there to make sure everyone is safe. My favorite thing to do is just lay by the pond , feed the fish and enjoy the sound of the ocean. Hope you'll visit us soon.

Why kim rodrigues chose Pahoa

My husband and I always rented a home in Kopoho to get away. We love it so much we decided to buy one. Its like stepping back in time.

What makes this house unique

The constant sound of the ocean.

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

We stay in Kapoho every year, but have never stayed at this home. It was wonderful and we will definitely be coming back! The kids played in the pool all day long!!! Very comfortable for our family of 8.

Great house and great location

  • 4 of 5

Very nice and well maintained house. There was some confusion over our dates and the cleaning schedule due to the website and it was handled quickly and professionally. Kim was very responsive and helpful! We loved the quiet, private setting. The neighborhood is wonderful and the tide pools are phenomenal. We enjoyed swimming in the pond and watching the fish. One thing I would say for larger parties is that how comfortable the rooming arrangement is depends on the composition of your party. We had 6 adults (four of them elders and two of those singles) and 2 kids. Getting everyone into a comfortable situation was a challenge given the capabilities of our party, but I would not hesitate to come again with a different combination of ages.

Great time again!

  • 5 of 5

Nanea Kai is so nice. We had such a great time as we always do there. The weather was fantastic. The pond was warm. The house is so comfortable. Mark and Kim thanks so much for the great time. It is always the highlight of our vacation. A bit of thunder, lightning and pouring rain the last day but this is the tropics and there is a reason it is so green at Kapoho!!! We even enjoyed that!!!

Love this place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our three days in the Pahoa area. The backyard tidepool filled with fish was perfect for our three year old. The kapohoe tide pools were the best snorkling we had on our trip and the conditions were so calm we had both our children snorkling with us.

Highly recommended!

Adventure wonderland!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this property and loved every part of it. We have two little kids and had no problems keeping them entertained between swimming in the awesome backyard pond filled with fish and snorkelling in the spectacular tide pools right besides the home. The home has a great amount of square footage, an amazing kitchen, large deck and is very well equipped. We would definitely recommend this property to other young families.

Great house

  • 4 of 5

Large home with plenty of space. So many great things about this house. I would have given 6 stars, but it could use some updates. Linens were a little old and ragged and beds really soft. Loved all the doors, windows and fans which kept the house nice and cool. Lots of rain, so the owner needs to do checks to make sure there are candles and batteries in the flashlights. Thanks for the great house.
