  • Your own private jungle with all the comforts of home!

    "First of all, I can't truly express how deeply we loved this property. You do have neighbors but because of the lush plant life on the property, you hardly notice. You are exactly 1 block away from the ocean and can hear it all day and night! There is an outdoor shower that makes you never want to take an indoor shower again. You have all the amenities of home including washer and dryer which means you can pack less. There is cable but shame on you if you watch t.v. while you are on vacation. This place allows you to completely unplug. You are a 5 minute drive from a volcano steam vent warmed ocean cove that is a dream. You are a 20 minute drive from the end of hwy 137 where there is a market and entertainment every Wednesday and Friday night starting at 5pm. The locals here are so welcoming! At the same place is the shortest walk to the lava flow into the ocean, approximately 4 miles one way. You are also within walking distance from the tide pools. Shopping is either in Pahoa, 8 miles, or Hilo, 30-45 minute drive depending on traffic. When we first arrived on the island, we started out on the Kona side and the drive to the house was disappointing and I thought "wow, I could have stayed at home for this." Then we got to the Hilo side and it made up for it immediately. We are talking lush green everywhere! What adds to the beauty is the tree frogs at night with their mating calls at night. It was like music to fall asleep to and when you are out on the porch at night, it makes for a dark wonderful jungle scene. There are also geckos inside and out of the house that leave you alone but add to the wonder of this place. After a humid hot day, your nights are cooled off by the nightly rains. I did have a blonde moment and had to email Gerard but I got a response within an hour which was awesome. Don't forget that if there is ripe fruit on the property you can pick it and the is also a machete available in the laundry room for your use. Lastly the beds are so comfortable especially after a long day hiking and swimming! I really can't recommend this property enough. We will be coming back!"

  • Local Person's Review

    "We were in need of a relaxing weekend away from Hilo town. Looking for a quiet, secluded location to just "chill out"... We found that location here. It was a nice little staycation. After reading over the other reviews, looked like most were from people not from the islands. Possibly not used to conditions in the area... We did not encounter rodents or critters during our stay. Not an ant in sight. The Management Company handled the pest control very well [as per previous reviews]. Though keep in mind, as in nature rodents and critters tend to roam on their own time. You are in Hawaii, not a major concrete city. Weather was finicky on the first day... It was overcast and a little rainy at about 1500 when we arrived. But it got better as the days went by. It's also to be expected in October. Nicely updated washer & dryer and in a better location. (Noticed the photo of the apartment style w&d in the restroom area.) The management company was easy and wonderful to work with. Scheduled, picked up keys and did everything specifically with Ronelle. Thank you! All in all, will definitely choose this location as a vacation rental, if we're looking to stay in Kapoho again : )"

  • Good Times at Kapoho Ocean View Home

    "We were glad to find a house to accommodate our large family. The process of renting was pretty easy. Sophia was attentive and ready to react if we had any issues (which we didn't). We cooked at home most of our stay, and did a few loads of laundry - everything we needed as far as amenities and supplies was available in the house. The Champagne pond and Kapoho tide pooling were the best! We had two little ones, so the safety and convenience were very welcome. The location was such that you had to drive about 30 mins minimum to get to additional attractions, including grocery stores, but we weren't usually in any big hurry to get anywhere. Overall, we had a very enjoyable and successful stay. Thanks, Sophia!"
