Property description

The House of the Dancing Turtles is just awaiting your arrival to show off her splendor and beauty in the always sunny and warm Kapoho Beach Lots area of the east side of the Big Island. This gated community is highly sought after by vacation renters because of it's beautiful location, close proximity to the sights and sounds of the beautiful Pacific Ocean and for the incredibly private crystal clear, geothermally heated lagoon for your relaxing pleasure. You owe it to yourself to stay in this beautiful home! The large lagoon which is right at your doorstep and is fed underground by the Pacific, is heated to a warm 91 degrees year round. This hale is on one of the most private lots in this area, therefore swimming in the lagoon will leave you with the feeling of being in some far away land.

The hale is decorated in a fun Hawaiiana theme and offers privacy with it's separate ohana that allows for couples to have their own private living and sleeping space. The front house offers 2 full bedrooms, 2 baths and a full size kitchen. The ohana which is generous in size, has a 2 full size bedrooms, bath, and a small kitchen for your use. You'll have the main house for up to 4 people and the Ohana for up to 4 more, but either way, you'll have the entire property to yourself. No other guests will in the Ohana, even if you don't need it. It's your exclusive Paradise! Both living areas offer covered lanai's that look out onto the incredible lagoon.

Just a few minutes walk from the hale are several ocean accesses including the incredible crystal clear Champagne Pond which is where you will find honu (sea turtles) making their home. Just a 5 minute drive down the historic Old Red Road is the Ahalanui Warm Spring Park which is another geothermally heated swimming pond at the edge of the Pacific Ocean. Another 10 minute drive down the Red Road is the historic Kehena Black Sand Beach and don't miss old Pahoa town, just a short 10 mile drive from the hale where you will find the original boardwalks that date back to the late 1800's when this sleepy little town was king in the sugar plantation days. There is great dining in this little town with Italian, Thai, Chinese and Tex-Mex. Hilo town with all of it's historical points of interest, color and famous for it's friendly people is only about 35 minutes away and the ever changing Volcanoes National Park is about a 50 minute drive from Honu Hula House.
