*BAY FRONT BUNGALOW - STEP INTO CALM COVE ON THE BAY

Kapoho House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

SUMMER SPECIAL! $20.00 OFF PER NIGHT! CURRENTLY IN THE PROCESS OF BEING REMODELED, This sweet one bedroom bungalow sits right on the shoreline where you can walk into the calm cove and snorkel, swim or kayak. Sea turtles frequently come into this cove and don't mind a curious snorkeler or two (sea turtles are a protected species here). This is a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the ocean, palm trees and trade winds in the afternoon.

Over the last 23 years, many vacationers have enjoyed this quaint water front cottage. The covered lanai has plenty of seating for lounging or dining and staring at the turquoise waters of Kapoho Bay. A gas and a charcoal barbeque grill are provided. You enter the property through a large bamboo gate onto a level grassy lawn surrounded by lava rock walls and coconut palms.

The open living room, dining area and kitchen have ocean views and there's a full kitchen with breakfast bar. The bedroom has a king bed with a newer comfort foam mattress and there's a futon sofa that folds out in the living room. Can sleep up to 4 guests total. (2 adults plus 2 kids, or 3 adults)

Satellite TV and internet provided. A full library of books are available as well as DVD movies. Ceiling fans cool the air in each room. An indoor laundry room has a washer and dryer. And now, two kayaks are provided - life vests must be worn.

The oceanfront bungalow is situated in the gated community of Kapoho Beach Lots, close to Champagne Pond, the tidepools, Pohoiki Bay and the lava flow viewing site. About 50 minutes drives to Volcano National Park. 35 miles to Hilo and 12 miles to Pahoa Village.

Note: there is intermittent construction going on at the property next door.

Keywords: Sweet, private, one bedroom bungalow right next to the water, Hawaii, Big Island, cove, bay

Island living with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I arrived to lovely fresh anthuriums in the kitchen and soft music playing through the tv. Immediately went outside to see the bay view and to hear the sounds of the ocean.
The property has kayak and snorkel stuff to use and we went out each day to explore the bay. When we were there the water was a bit murky but we still managed to see a couple of turtles right there in the protected cove. The red kayak is least likely to tip you over so give it to the beginner or unbalanced person of your group.

We enjoyed hanging out on the lanai and in the living room so we could see and hear the ocean. We also enjoyed hearing the ocean as we fell asleep each night. The bed was a memory foam for us, not sure if that's getting replaced in the remodel they've mentioned here.

Bonus - there's a washer and dryer so we were able to wash our clothes before we left!

We will be coming back to this property on our next trip to the Big Island, we loved it for it's relaxing and peaceful atmosphere as well as a home base for trips to Kona, Punalu'u beach, Waimea, Akaka Falls, and Rainbow Falls. Definitely a home away from home for us. Thank you to Jamie also for all of your help!

Some tips:
-Use bug spray any time you're going outside or within a few minutes you'll have a generous amount of bites.
-Check under the sink in the bathroom, there are some shampoo/conditioners left by previous travelers if you run out of the hotel sized hair care before the stay is over.
-The kitchen does have some sugar, salt, pepper, oil, and soy sauce for your use (or it did for us).
-Get some manapua from 7-Eleven when you're on the way through the town of Pahoa to get the keys (manapua are steamed buns/bao that come stuffed with char-sui, teriyaki chicken, or other delicious flavors). All 7-elevens have a variety of steamed items.
-Try the different eateries in Pahoa, haven't had a bad meal yet at any of them.
-Shop at the KTA in Hilo on your way to the house, they have a larger variety of foods and a larger bakery than the Malama Mart in Pahoa (macadamia nut cream pie and apple bananas). Although Malama isn't bad.
-Hilo farmer's market is amazing almost any day of the week (Saturday is it's biggest day) but there's also one North of Pahoa on Sundays that is very large.
-Leung's Chop Suey House on rt 11 South of Hilo has great cake noodles (and everything else). They are closed Tuesdays.
-Ken's has excellent pancakes of course but also try the loko moko there.

We only stayed in this house for three days, but loved what it had to offer. Having the ocean right at your front door was beautiful and the water is perfect for swimming.

We would return for sure!

Lovely bay

  • 3 of 5
This is a great location although quite a drive from a large grocery store and other shopping. The property itself is wonderful and the house clean but it is very old and it shows. The carpet in the bedroom is very very old and the mattress far too soft. Sore backs in the morning. the bay is protected but there wasn't any snorkelling. The greatest fun thing to do from this location was to go to the tidal poos and to volcano national park although that made for a long day re: the drive and the amount of time needed to explore the region. We thought that the cost was high for the age of the bungalow. If you go enjoy but be prepared for old. Blessing you. Futon in the living room would be for difficult sleeping. Sleeps 2

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for visiting us at the Bayfront Bungalow. For future visitors, there are several small grocery stores, banks, restaurants and shopping with a Longs Drug store in Pahoa, just 12 miles away. The King bed has just been replaced with a pillow top mattress. The owners are making upgrades. - The Management

A beautiful 4 days

  • 4 of 5
The location is exquisite. There were some minor hassles with the rental company but they were dealt with expediently. The kayaks, lawn area, and other outside amenities were fabulous. It was a wonderful area to take walks and ride bikes. The house was well stocked, a bit older, and comfortable. My only real complaint is the master bedroom mattress. It left me hurting for days...I am 62...so these things do matter.

lovely bayfront retreat

  • 5 of 5
This is our second time at the Bayfront Bungalow and we were again happy to have chosen it as a vacation retreat. The lovely, well- maintained bungalow is well stocked with essentials. Visitors just need to bring groceries for a very pleasant stay. There are kayaks, life vests, reef shoes, etc. also provided!

We also enjoy the short excursions suggested in their visitor "welcome folder." The Puna District is our favorite part of the Big Island. A visit to the National Volcanoes Park is not far away. The shoreline drive is beautiful.

We certainly will visit again!
