vacation rental description

Located in Beautiful, Sunny Kapoho, this newly renovated Hawaiian
home is sure to provide you with everything you need to enjoy a
relaxing vacation in luxurious Hawaii. Begin your vacation by
swimming in your own private natural lava pool. Heated by the warm
lava rock and cooled by the ocean water, this pond will sooth and
help you relax any day or night. Only a few steps from snorkeling
in the marine conservation tidepools, this Hawaiian home will
delight you in ways you never expected.
The home features two tastefully decorated bedrooms with queen-size
beds; sofa-bed in the living room; a full bathroom with tub plus an
outdoor shower; eat in kitchen and bar area; wrap-around porch with
Adirondack chairs; lanai with chaise lounges, comfortable chairs,

Sunny Kapoho is a 40 minute drive south of Hilo, near Pahoa at the
southeastern tip of the Big Island. This area is lush with wild
orchids and tropical vegetation that overflows with natural beauty
and authentic Hawaiian charm. Nearby activities include Ahalanui
Park, a geothermally heated pool surrounded by palms. A mixture of
ocean and spring water that averages 90 degrees makes for a soothing
and restoring swim in a therapeutic pool. Just a short walk to
beautiful Kapoho Bay and the Ocean offer great snorkeling, and
viewing of whales, sea turtles and tropical fish.

traveler reviews for this hilo house rental


Review submitted: January 28, 2014   Date of arrival: January 17, 2014

What a great place, we will be returning. All the reviews are pretty accurate, here is my few additions.

The Maintenance Man was great. He got us some fresh coconuts from the trees and showed my little guy how to open them and eat them, really fun

We bought a boogie board with a window in it so our 3 year old could use it to snorkel, the pond made it really nice to practice before heading to the ocean. It's still there, so I hope it will be of use to another family with kids.

Lots of food there (condiments and other non-parishables) Recommend you check in to see what is in the fridge or cupboards before heading to the store. The grocery store is a pretty short drive in Pahoa, and has everything you will need

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers

This is a great property for the right people, but it's very important to be sure that you are those people. If your ideal vacation home involves arctic air conditioning, plush carpets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors and crown moldings in a fancy resort, this house is not for you. However, if you’re looking for a comfortable, unpretentious, plantation-style house that’s perfectly situated and equipped for the active enjoyment of this beautiful part of rural Hawaii, you’ll be happy.

The house fronts on a quiet lane, on a large lot bordered by an undeveloped lava pond on one side, and thick jungle on the other, ensuring privacy and a quiet night, aside from the frogs. Fortunately, their song is pleasantly birdlike, rather than a bullfrog mega-croak or harsh ribbit concerto.

The house is surrounded by a wrap-around covered lanai, furnished to provide comfortable, sheltered outdoor relaxing spaces. The separate screened lanai and the pondside lounging areas are also well-designed for sunning or relaxing. During our stay, we found that there were very few insects even in the unscreened areas, possibly due to the very active patrols of lively geckos.

The outdoor shower and faucet arrangement is very convenient for rinsing people and gear after a dip in the warm pond or a snorkel in the Tidepools. There are lots of towels and a wide variety of toys and gear to enhance your enjoyment of the pond and ocean, and bikes to allow you to pedal around the quiet lanes. The best entry into the Tidepools is only 150 yards away, and it’s a great area to learn to snorkel, or for the advanced snorkeler to enjoy the abundant fish and beautiful coral.

The house is fan-cooled, meaning that it can get warm in the early afternoon, but opening the many screened windows and turning up the fans keeps the heat manageable, and a swim or snorkel is always a cooling option. Kitchen and bathroom facilities are adequate, and the outdoor gas BBQ is very efficient. The washer and drier are a great convenience, as is the computer system and wifi. There’s a good selection of books and DVD’s, and multichannel cable TV.

Welcome upgrades to the property might include a larger flatscreen TV, and a swim ladder to allow less agile guests to more easily access the warm pond. But as it is, for two compatible couples or an active small family, this ideally-located property will help you enjoy the delights of Kapoho in a house that quickly makes you feel at home.

a great place to regroup and relax

Review submitted: November 4, 2013   Date of arrival: October 19, 2013

we stayed at the pond house for a week and I agree with the other reviews -- the location is beautiful and relaxing I so enjoyed all the different sounds as the late afternoon approached, We did have a couple of concerns -- the microwave could use replacing, the dishwasher needs repairing as when we were there it would not drain at all and the dryer should have a note letting others know that it doesn't turn off by itself in some cycles (ie towels) We loved the outdoor shower, as it was so nice to rinse the salt water off after swam. We really enjoyed the geckos and the ability to just kick back and relax. It was nice to have reference books there it made our daily adventuring so much more fun. I would definitely recommend the pond house as a great getaway for anyone. Aloha !!!
