What a great escape! If you love to be near the

water and love to snorkel and explore, come on and

stay at this wonderful house.

The best snorkeling on the Big Island is here with

the Champagne Pond two blocks away and a view

from the deck like nothing other in the early

morning and at night. Stars for days and days to be

a star in this great retreat. If you like remote, this is

for you. Pahoa, which is about 20 mins away has

some great restaurants and a cash only market and

a great natural foods store. This place is changing

like crazy, so get there before the natural life is all

lost. Last 'real' Hawaii is here.

The conservation area, which is a short walk or

drive, is spectacular with snorkeling pools of

splendor. Coral and sealife everywhere.

Watch the tides so you know when to see the sea

turtles in the Champagne Pond. They come and go

with the high tide.

You'll sleep like a baby here, with the winds and

rain that happen to pass in the evening and early

morning.

Too splendid for your get away. Enjoy.

Well situated for adventures

  • 4 of 5

Clean, comfortable house. Nice water feature in yard--a warm secluded pond to sit in and watch the stars. Near to a lot of great activities by car or even walking distance for some.

Nice wrap around deck with some ocean view & shade options. Friendly, helpful owners.

The Garden of Eden - Seriously!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home and location!

We came to The Cedar House not knowing exactly what to expect and we fell in love with the place.

The house is situated with a wonderful breeze and beautiful views! We loved sitting on the lanai, watching the birds by day and stars by night. We found the house to be very clean and well-maintained, which made for a great stay.

The famous Champagne pond is just a short, easy walk down the road and is always just the right temperature with clear water to enjoy. Also, the snorkeling at the neighboring Wai'opae Ponds is some of the best snorkeling on the island, with easy enjoyment for any levels of expereince (beginner to advanced).

During our stay, we went on an exciting guided hike to see active lava flow - it was awesome! We've never seen anything else like it! Also, Pahoa is a small town about 20 min. away with some great Thai food and other restaurants.

We would absolutely recommend this place to anyone that is considering a visit -- and we have every intention of returning!!!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is in the perfect spot to enjoy the wonderful Champaign Pond, located a short 5 minute walk away. This location allows you to easily enjoy all that the Kapoho area has to offer, geothermal heated ponds, tidepools for snorkeling and the ocean right down the street. The house has beautiful grounds, lushly landscaped and has an incredible view from the deck. It even has its own natural hot pond to splash around in. Paula, the owner is one of the most accommodating people I've ever met. She tries to make sure that everything goes smoothly. We really enjoyed our stay.

Kapoho area is nice!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Cedar home in May 2012.

We had a very good time in Kapoho!

I have visited to Honolulu many times, but it is my first time to stay in Big Island.

This area is very different from Oahu.

The natural scenery is unique and wonderful!!

The champagne pond is nearby.

It is very unique spot!(^^)

You can hear sound of champagne bubble.

All Tide pool is warm and very clear, so we enjoyed snorkel and swim.

We are from Japan, and I can’t speak English well.

But Paula is very kind and provide intelligible informations for me.

I appreciate her support.

Unfortunately, I missed the turtles.

We will be back to Kapoho in the future!!
