*BAY FRONT BUNGALOW - STEP INTO CALM COVE

Kapoho House Rental Photos and Description

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

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 (newer) 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.

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

Keywords: Sweet, private one bedroom bungalow right next to the water

A beautiful 4 days

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

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!

Our stay at the Bay Front Bungalow

We loved our stay at the Bay Front Bungalow and are already looking forward to the next time we can get there. The little cove was a perfect place to snorkel, swim and kayak. Loved hearing the waves in the background at night and when first getting up in the morning. We enjoyed visits from turtles in the cove, and a mongoose in the yard. The proximity to Pahoa made it easy to get to town when needed. Thanks for sharing this peaceful home with us.

Relaxation in paradise

The Bay Front Bungalow was a very nice and relaxing place to stay. My wife and I stayed at the Bay Front Bungalow for 6 nights and enjoyed every minute. The facilities were clean and well kept. We spent out time swimming, taking walks, and going into Pahoa or Hilo. We frequently saw turtles in the water just outside the house. The place was quiet and peaceful. The pictures online are representative of the house. The washer and dryer in the home was also very helpful.
