TROPICAL OASIS AT THE MANGO HOUSE WITH WRAPAROUND LANAI

Kapaau House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedroom with King Beds, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Big Island Vacation Houses presents: The Mango House. This lush, tropical oasis is located in beautiful North Kohala and offers an immersive Hawaiian experience removed from the tourist traps and bustle of other locales. In fact, it may have you believing you're a local.

A large variety of lush flora envelopes and divides the property, including hibiscus, birds of paradise, orchids, ferns, palms, an awesome banyan tree and fruit trees offering the freshest mangoes, papayas, bananas, and avocados that are yours for the picking. Savor oceanic, pastoral or jungle views as tropical birds sing, geckos chatter, the island breezes caress the trees, and the resonance of the tide rhythmically whispering in the distance.

The Mango House is a luxuriously designed 2,000 square foot house. The king sized master bedroom on the first floor accesses the 1,000 ft. of covered lanai decks. The upstairs loft bedroom with another king bed as well as a trundle bed, has its own half bathroom and upper level private lanai with spectacular ocean views. There is a fantastic fully equipped kitchen with state of the art appliances and an amazing 6ft Koa slab island. The master bath has a vessel sink and bali stone shower with soaking tub. There is also a separate private outdoor Bali Stone shower that is great after a day at the beach.

You are a short drive from the historic town of Kapaau, home of the original King Kamehameha I Statue. The charming downtown area has great art galleries and several wonderful restaurant as well as Kamehameha Park which has great tennis courts, a public swimming pool, a skate park and wonderful children playground. There is even a small public golf course you can play on for a nominal fee. A short drive in the other direction leads you Keokea Beach Park, which is a great spot for a picnic. Continue on and you come to the end of the road at the stunning Pololu Valley Overlook where you can enjoy a spectacular view hike down to the valley.

A few minutes past Kapaau is the colorful town of Hawi, known as North Kohala’s biggest little town. It is home to a weekly farmer’s market that we think is one of the best on the island. Be sure to sample local varieties of popular fruits, like apple bananas, strawberry papaya and in season, super sweet white pineapple! Hawi is also the bicycle turnaround for the annual Ironman World Championship held every October and has a great selection of unique shops and tasty restaurants. The world famous Bamboo Restaurant is consistently voted one of the best restaurants on the island with a great lineup of live music featuring award winning Hawaiian musicians. There are also wonderful alternative healing practices located here, with massage therapists , acupuncture specialists, naturopaths, herbalists, and a variety of yoga styles represented.

North Kohala is perfectly located to take advantage of many fun activities including scenic coastal rides on horseback or ATVs, the Kohala Zipline, Kayaking the Kohala Ditch and hiking trails galore. Head up the mountain road to Waimea and experience one of the best scenic drives in the US, with incredible views of Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea and its observatories and a birds eye view of South Kohala with all its resorts and white sand beaches. The beaches in Kohala are the best on the island, including world famous Hapuna beach (Conde Nast rated it one of the top 10 beaches in the world), scenic Mauna Kea Beach, child friendly Spencer Beach Park and local favorite Beach 69.

Head down the coast towards South Kohala and you’ll discover many historical sites and parks along the coastline to enjoy. Lapakahi State Park is the site of an ancient fishing village and a great spot for snorkeling and whale watching. The harbor town of Kawaihae is home to a variety of tour companies offering scuba, snorkeling and whale watching tours. There’s also a nice selection of shops and galleries along with great dinning and music at the Blue Dolphin Restaurant or popular Café Pesto.

This private Eden reveals three other private houses spread out over 2 acres and presents a variety of accommodations, as each house offers it's own distinctive floor plan.

The Gecko House (they were everywhere...loved it!)

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay and thought the house and property were very nice. The house could use a little maintenance, but none of the issues were major. The house next door was being renovated, so there was a little construction noise during the day, but it was not very loud. If you are going to buy groceries near by go to Takata, I do not recommend Arakaki. The shops/restaurants in Hawi and Kapa'au were nice, we really enjoyed Kohala Coffee Mill. If you are going souvenir shopping I recommend Pacific Nature at the Queen's Shops in Waikoloa, they had a good selection and the prices were much better than shops closer to the house. Our favorite two beaches were Mauna Kea (they allow public beach access next to the resort) and Hapuna Beach State Park (there's a $5.00 entrance fee.) I hope this info helps any future renters.

Amazing! Best Vacation Ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5
The moment we turned into the driveway we knew we had chosen the perfect spot for a relaxing Big Island vacation. We were immediately surrounded by lush vegetation and tropical flowers. The owners brother, Mike, was there to greet us when we arrived.

We walked the property with him, gathering Mangos, avacados and coconuts and picking a big bouquet of flowers to put on the table. What a treat.

The house is beautiful, very well kept and had everything we needed. I woke every morning to the sound of palm trees in the breeze and curled up in the comfy wicker porch chair to have my coffee and read my book. In the evening we had pina coladas (made with fresh pineapple from the local farmers market) on the 2nd floor Lanai where we could watch the ocean.

There are two small towns nearby, North Kohola and Hawi that have great restaurants, coffee shops and interesting shopping.

There was a grocery store not far from the house. We found that we really enjoyed cooking in the well appointed kitchen and using the barbeque most nights. So relaxing!

We explored the island everyday. There are beautiful beaches near by and we found lots of places to snorkel. After our adventures we felt like we were coming home each evening!

WiFi and Direct TV were an added bonus!

Thank you Mango House for sharing the "real" Hawaii with us. What an amazing 38th Anniversary vacation!!

A side of Hawaii you might not expect.

  • 3 of 5
This house is located on the north of the Big Island in a tropical rainforest. The area is rural and for that reason considerably more interesting than the other more populated touristic areas. The downside of this is you must drive everywhere and there are no good beaches very close. The closest town is Kapaau about 5 miles away. The house is well designed and built. The outdoor shower is absolutely devine! The beds are comfortable. The kitchen and other appliances are modern and worked well. Nevertheless, we had the felling that things were a little run down. The screens on the doors were flopping around. The porch furniture was scruffy. This is probably due to the fact that it is quite wet here and it was difficult to dry things out.

The ocean views are very minimal although one does here the surf at night.

We were two couples, and there were not enough plates or utensils so that one had to wash up after each meal. There were only 3 chairs at the dining room table. It is an overstatement to say there are 2 bedrooms when the second one is an open loft. The second bathroom is tiny and does not include a shower or bath. Given the immense please of the outdoor shower, this is a minor annoyance. The sound proofing is nonexistent as far as we could tell.

This place has lots of unrealized potential. As it is, it is more a camp than a house. All in all, we enjoyed the place and especially the area, but would not likely come back here. An important reason for that is the amount of driving one does from here. Also, we visited in the winter, and experienced some stormy weather, so we might have a different view in the summer and fall.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the feedback on our property as, while we have local management and family, alas, we are currently located
on the mainland. For that reason we provide both a local contact phone number of our capable manager as well as the owners phone number to all guests. Breakage is inevitable and we are understanding with guests on this note (I have four children after all!).
The screen has been repaired and the missing dining room chair is back from the wood shop in Kona, both casualties of prior guests. These things happen. We imagined one of the additional teak chairs on the deck as a substitute in the meantime as well as the adjacent koa slab island with three stools. Plates and glasses have been located, and we apologize if there was a management oversight there.
The pictures of the house do not overstate it's beauty: koa slab, ipe flooring, monkey pod custom stair case, mango trim, indoor and outdoor bali stone shower. The house has a cathedral ceiling, so it is true that there is no soundproofing for the loft, but we will have to agree to disagree on the "camp" reference as the photos of the house clearly illustrate it's warmth and beauty. We provide ample beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkeling gear for the convenience of our guests. As far as the location, it is a 25 minute whale-watch of a drive along the North Kohala coast (no Kona vog or traffic!!) to the nicest beaches on the island: Hapuna, 69, Maumae, Mauna Kea; 2 miles from the spectacular Pololu Valley and the best hikes and horseback riding on the island (the historic Bond Estate, Opolu airport, Mahukona, Kapaa, Lapakahi State Park). That said, I do apologize for any shortcomings.

Amazing, Private Oasis

  • 5 of 5
We went to Mango House for our honeymoon and it was so quiet and private. The property was beautiful with fruit trees and the sounds of birds and a nearby stream filling the air. We would recommend this rental to anyone looking to relax and get a taste of the local culture. The small towns nearby had good food, friendly locals and good shopping. There is a valley very close that is very worth the mile hike downhill. The beaches are a short drive away and the views en route are breathtaking. We can't wait to go back!

absolute paradise

  • 5 of 5
The Mango House was a little piece of paradise. When you first pull up, off a little dirt road you come to a sign that says Aloha with your name under it. Then you walk up a set of majestic stairs to a beautiful wrap around porch/lanai. When we entered the home we were taken back by the beautiful wood work throughout. The kitchen was stunning with amazing views of the backyard and all the coconut trees. The outdoor shower was one of our favorite spaces. Loved coming home after a day at Kua Bay and taking a shower outside with our little friends the geckos. The kids ( 2 and 5 ) loved it too! The breezes at night were perfect for a comfortable sleep with the distant sounds of the waves crashing on the beach. The farmer's market at Hawi (about 5 miles down the road) was one of our favorites. Everything was very accessible. Grocery store, beaches, restaurants, etc. The town of Hawi and Kapaau both have wonderful downtowns with fun stores and great food. We highly recommend staying at this little piece of paradise.

Beautiful and Extremely Private House on Tropical Grounds

  • 5 of 5
I am so happy that we decided to stay on this side of the Big Island. It is so lush and green. The Mango House is just like it looks in the pictures, only better! It is extremely private. If you are looking for quiet this is the place. We ate dinner in practically every night thanks to a big open kitchen with everything you need, as well as a charcoal grill where we grilled local fresh fish and island grass fed beef. The outdoor shower is fantastic, so nice that we never even used the one inside. There were just two of us staying at the house, although it can sleep more. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place!
