Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I have lived in Kapoho for 35 years, own a landscape and orchid farm, raised a family here and feel grateful to share the beauty of this areas, in a more natural and peaceful atmosphere of simple living.

Why the Owner Chose Kapoho, Puna District, HI, USA:
I watched the 'Pond House' being built in the 80's because I lived across the street. I always liked it because it had a large tidal pond in the front yard and a 300 acre undisturbed property behind it. The house itself was built in a way to have light and air and the beauty of nature be part of every room in the house. I have enjoyed furnishing and decorating the 'Pond House' so it feels like an intimate, easy going, get away.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
My cottage has the feeling of 'old Hawai`i. Sitting or laying down in the screened lanai, you are surrounded by nature, looking out onto a tidal pond, hearing the open ocean waves and watching palm trees catching the wind....very peaceful. Plus, it is very easy to go from the house, down a trail to the open ocean tidepool area, for snorkeling, catching a sunrise or just exploring!
