About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, wrap around porch
There is a lovely, relaxing tidal pond in the front yard to cool you on those warm Hawaiian days! The 3/4 acre grounds include towering coconut palms, bananas, African Tulip Trees, mangoes, Cook Pines, and plumeria.
This roomy home (upper unit) boasts a spacious wrap-around covered lanai from which to enjoy the garden views and new Weber grill. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a dining area and large living room with vaulted ceilings. The master bedroom has a King-sized bed with tiled bathroom. The other 2 bedrooms have queen size beds. A second bath is off the hall. The bathrooms were remodeled in 2012 and are fully tiled. With ample sized common areas and all the amenities for gourmet cooking, the home is suited either for entertaining or for a quiet romantic getaway. Watch the large screen HD satellite TV, or DVDs or Netflix movies. Fall asleep to the sound of the ocean waves or relax on the lanai after a day of snorkeling, swimming with turtles or dolphins, or hiking or lava viewing.
The home is a 3 minute walk from the Kapoho Tidepools: a beautiful, protected coral reef which has the best snorkeling, skin diving, and swimming in the area. The reef protects swimmers from big waves and creates safe swimming even for young children and holds beautiful schools of tropical fish and colorful coral. A snorkeler's paradise!
Sunny Kapoho retains the ambience of 'Old Hawaii'. Situated on the eastern coast of the Big Island, away from major tourist development, Kapoho still holds the serenity and unmarred beauty of an island paradise.
There are numerous day-trip adventures to the Hot Ponds, Kileaua Volcano, Hilo town, Akaka Falls, botanical gardens, farmer's markets and delightful restaurants. Or you can just kick back and escape to the paradise and tranquility that is Hawaii.
For a family reunion or large group, you can rent the downstairs as well for a total of six bedrooms and four bathrooms. As us about discounted rates for the whole house. And KIDS 17 and under STAY FREE!

Why the Owner Chose Kapoho, Puna District, HI, USA:
In December 2002, my family stayed in this house for vacation. The land is magical and the sound of the waves, the incredible tide pools, the volcano, and hanging out all night on the lanai listening to music and playing games made it the most relaxing vacation we have ever known. The kids couldn't get enough of jumping in the pond, bringing coconuts to us from the yard to crack open and swimming in the tide pools. When I learned the house was for sale, I got a couple of friends together and we jumped in.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Convenient access to wonderful snorkeling at the tide pools is top of the list. The Hot Pond, lava viewing, & swimming at Richardson's Ocean Beach in Hilo are both fun and relaxing. I love the Farmers Markets for fresh fruit, We return once or twice a year and always use the time to upgrade the amenities to make the experience more relaxing and luxurious for our guests. The linens are completely changed out every year. All the beds are new, lighting and ceiling fans are new as are ALL the appliances. We hope you stay with us and we'll share the secrets of magical East Hawaii. We are adding more fruit trees this year and plan to tile both bathrooms and refinish the lanai.
