Recent Kapoho reviews

  • KC's Paradise

    "This was an outstanding location - the house was large and spacious, very well equipped and set up perfectly for two couples. Outside, there is a naturally heated pool which has a therapeutic effect. The famous champagne pool is in walking distance with the volcano only 40 minutes away. Pat, the owner, was gracious and informative - providing us with the best tasting bananas that we have ever had. We would definitely return!"

  • Nice Place to Stay in the Puna District.

    "Stayed here with my family of 5 and another family of 5 with lots of small children. The layout is a little odd with the downstairs not connected to the upper part of the house except for two outside staircases, but it wasn't an issue. The transactions were smooth. The kids loved the pool. There were plenty of snorkels and masks and towels and toys for the kids to play with. The lanai was great, as was the upstairs area where you could view the ocean. The location is excellent for exploring this part of the island. We especially loved being so close to the Volcanoes NP and the Ahalanui thermal pool. The champagne ponds were cool as well. We went into the town of Pahoa every night for dinner. This is a nice house and neighborhood but you should not be expecting extravagance."

  • A great base for exploration

    "If all you want is an anodyne resort with all the usual branding, then why bother coming to Big Island - in my mind, it's the geography, history and geology that make it special and Kapoho is an ideal location to soak it all up from. This property is a bit tired and frayed around the edges but after all, it's not exactly expensive and it offers tremendous views from the extensive wrap-around lanai where you'll want to spend most of your time. You're steps away from the warm delights of "champagne pond" and a short drive will take you to the tide pools which offer some of the best snorkelling on the island. The surrounding roads are a bit slow so getting from A to B will always take longer than you think but you'll find yourself drawn back to the delights offered by Volcanoes national park, never mind Mauna Kea and as a complete contrast, art-deco Hilo. In summary, great value, great location, great fun."

  • A Wonderful Place, and the Fish Rule!

    "When visiting the islands of Hawaii we love to go snorkeling but always find the logistics intimidating - packing all the gear, choosing a location close to good beaches, arriving before the crowds, gambling on the weather. Mika Lani is the perfect solution to all that. After arrival, the only remaining question is how many times you wish to snorkel each day. (Hint: Bring more than one swimming suit.) Other reviewers have correctly described how well-equipped, convenient, and clean this property is. The owners obviously take pride in maintaining and upgrading everything - from the new washer/dryer to the new kayaks. The kitchen has everything you need. But for us it was really all about the fish. In varying weather conditions, tide levels, and degrees of sunlight, we saw dozens of tropical fish we had not encountered before. One evening, we were surprised by a huge school of mullet repeatedly leaping clean out of the water. Fish in the tide pools are protected and they seem to know it. Game wardens patrol the area. Fortunately, the Suisan Fish Market in Hilo has a great selection of the eating variety and we grilled fresh fish practically every night on Mika Lani's Weber propane barbecue. Also, the weather at Mika Lani seems several notches better than in Hilo or Pahoa. Often we would drive through torrential rains that would be replaced by sun breaks just a couple of miles before arriving at Mika Lani. We hope to return soon, and would not hesitate to recommend this lovely spot to anyone (but may decide not to, for fear that the calendar will fill up too quickly...)"
