About the Property

Just a couple of blocks from the famous Waiopae Tidepools, this comfortable 2-bedroom home is the perfect private base for your Big Island adventures.

Kahua Kapoho in sunny Kapoho Vacationland is a clean, classy, private and very well equipped vacation rental home at a great rate. You'll love swimming, floating and soaking in the private tidal pond. Plus you're just a 5 minute walk from the famous Wai Opae tidepools, a protected marine reserve where you'll experience some of the best snorkeling in the entire state.

Kahua Kapoho sits on a yard landscaped for tropical privacy. The back yard is dominated by an extra-large private geothermal tidal pond. Photos just don't do the pond justice. The tall, dense trees that surround the property keep it shady, cool and private, but they cast the pond in shadow. Crystal clear and geothermally heated to a luxurious 90 degrees, the pond is filtered constantly by the tide. you'll get a kick out of watching the water raise and lower each day. It's an easy way to tell when the tide is up - handy because that's the best time to grab your snorkel and walk over to the tidepools, where acres of volcanically formed tidepools are home to a mind blowing array of fish and coral.

When you arrive at Kahua Kapoho, you'll immediately feel the Aloha. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, all you'll be able to hear most of the time is the constant of the ocean. You'll head up a flight of stairs and enter onto the large, fully screened lanai. The elevated home catches the trade breezes, and you'll spend a lot of time out on the lanai. There's a sitting area for relaxing and talking story; a dining table for enjoying your meals; even a bed so you can nap or sleep close to nature if the mood strikes. Ceiling fans encourage extra air flow and rope lights add to the ambiance.

When you step inside, you'll notice how well kept and bright the house is. Pale laminate bamboo flooring and walls in shades of white and cream add an airy lightness. The owners have decorated the house very thoughtfully in a whimsical, tropical style. The effect is clean and classy, with just a touch of kitsch.

The living room provides ample seating. The large TV has satellite reception and a DVD player. There are books with Hawaiian and nature themes, a small selection of music CDs and DVD programs. High speed internet including Wifi and a selection of games and puzzles round out the entertainment options.

If you choose vacation rentals because you cook while on vacation, you are going to love this kitchen! There's a flat top electric range, extra-large fridge, dishwasher, microwave and coffee maker. But it doesn't stop there! You'll also find coffee grinder, toaster, bagel toaster, toaster oven, slow cooker, rice cooker, blender, hand mixer and even more. The counters go on for days. There's a deep ceramic double sink and every prep and serving utensil you can imagine. And then there's the quality cookware - much nicer than what one usually finds in a rental property.

There are two spacious and nicely furnished bedrooms - one with a king bed and the other with a queen. Both bedrooms offer a full Ensuite bathroom with tile floors and shower over tub. Each has a large closet that includes a set of drawers and hangar rack. Each bedroom also has a sliding glass door that leads out to the small front lanai.

Kahua Kapoho provides a full size washer and dryer for your convenience. There are 4 bikes for exploring the area. The outdoor shower is perfect for rinsing off after a dip in the pond or when you return from snorkeling at the tidepools.

Kapoho is a quiet community on the eastern tip of the island. It's often referred to as "Sunny Kapoho" as it sees only about a third of the rain that falls in Hilo. You'll have a blast exploring along the Red Road - one of the most beautiful drives you'll ever take. Heading south from Kapoho you'll find Ahalanui Park, aka Millionaires Pond, a park with a lagoon at the ocean's edge that is almost Jacuzzi temperature. 5 minutes past there is Isaac Hale Park at Pohoiki Bay the local hot spot for surfing and boogie boarding, and is home to the boat ramp that the lava viewing boats use. Kehena Black Sand Beach is a 15 minute drive. The Kalapana lava viewing area (Pele willing) is 25 minutes away at the end of the Red Road.

Eclectic Pahoa Town is 9 miles from Kapoho, with yummy restaurants, fun shopping , and necessities like convenience and grocery stores, banks, gas, etc. Historic Hilo is 45 minutes from Kapoho, and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is about an hour.
