Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Retired, I used to live in the house. I book only two persons maximum per unit.

Why the Owner Chose Kapoho, Puna District, HI, USA:
This is a clean, quiet, budget rental at price much lower than adjacent or nearby vacation rentals. Very few rentals in the area have as good a view or location. A great deal considering view and location. The house is a side by side duplex. Two guests will sleep in the pictured unit; if there are three or four guests, both units are rented to you and joined by a common door on the lanai. The units are entirely private, with separate staircases and entrances on on opposite sides of carport. Well insulated, no loud music or parties allowed. If you want to book both units, they can be joined by opening the locked door between the lanais (decks). Other unit is shown in VRBO listing 786384.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Snorkeling and swimming across the street in the Waiopae Tidepools, a marine sanctuary. Awesome ocean and tidepools view from the house.
