Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

One of the original beach houses In Kapoho Beach Lots, Jo Mitchel's is right on the water. You can't beat this location for easy access to the warm, calm inlet waters. You can relax in the lounge chairs or sit on the bench on the concrete landing, then just walk down the stairs right into the thermally heated fresh and salt water and swim and snorkel with the colorful fish and giant sea turtles that come right up in front of the property each day. Just a few blocks walk to the Champagne Pond where you can soak in the 80 - 90 degree water, too! The beach house is comfortable and relaxing - not fancy! But it has what you need to enjoy an old-fashioned Hawaiian tropical vacation. It's fully furnished with 2 bedrooms each with a comfortable queen bed plus 1 single bed in living room. Sleeps up to 5 people. Note: You walk through one bedroom to get to the the stairway to the master bedroom. It's well stocked with linens, towels, kitchen utensils, plus snorkel gear and boogie boards for water fun! You can fall asleep to the tropical breeze blowing through the windows of the master bedroom, and waves breaking a few feet away. Get away from the hustle and bustle and relax here! There's an indoor bathroom with a shower, or just a few steps away from the main house is a separate private bathroom with large shower. There's a covered old fashioned barbeque area with a picnic table on the lawn and tables under the covered lanai. There's Satellite TV provided. No internet to distract you here from your lovely vacation! (Note: AT&T cell works here). There's a laundry room with washer and dryer.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Wind pulsing through the cabin as swimsuits twist on the clothesline. Waking up as if in clouds. Floating alongside Honu. Trying and tossing our first line. Snorkeling 3x a day - surrounded by unique colorful fish and hearing the distant clink of lava rocks shifting in the surge. Meeting Pele's work and seeing the local offerings to the Power. This place is so quiet and magical. "

The Home is a little funky but the location is absolutely fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

This is private, fairly close to everything and you can walk down the back steps right into the ocean for great snorkeling. For us it was a fabulous experience

Loved our stay at Jo Mitchel's

  • 5 of 5

This house is all about location. We have stayed in Kapoho Bay before and this house has one of the best accesses to the calmest part of the bay. The house itself is small and a little odd in its layout. The kitchen is small and could be more functional, but we did most of our cooking on the BBQ outside. It’s just a little kettle drum BBQ but the pit was really nice and sheltered so you could BBQ when it was raining. The best part about the house is it sits really close to the water and its landing and steps made it quick and easy to get in the water. Going for a 20 minute snorkel was so easy we went every day. The outside bathroom made it easy to shower after getting out of the water. I would stay here again.

cozy and authentic

  • 5 of 5

we had a wonderful time at this cozy place. we woke up every morning to a lovely swim right outside our back door! and, we went for another swim each evening with resident turtles before we grilled fish or steak on the BBQ. we will be back many times to this tranquil sanctuary.

Swim with the Honu

  • 5 of 5

This place is a snapshot of the past. It still the same as it was 15 years ago since we started coming. A trip to Hawaii isn't complete without some time here. But, I don't think it's for everyone. The place is kept clean but there are always some giant roaches to kill with the provided fly swatters. If you can get past the bugs, gekkos and the heat (it can get pretty toasty in there), it's amazing. The place is stocked with just about everything you'll need for preparing food. They used to have shampoo and soap in the bathrooms but they have stopped doing this. :( They have the best lagoon for swimming in the entire area! My family loves it so much. We'll be back for sure.

Aloha!

Located in a rural setting with lots of beautiful scenery on the easterly coast of the Pacific Ocean and Kapoho Bay. Only about 30 miles to the Volcano National Park and about 15 minutes to the lava flow viewing site (as Pele permits). A few blocks to Champagne Pond and a few miles to the public hot ponds. Just a mile to the Waiopae tidepools for great snorkeling. Close to Lava Tree Park.
