Overview

Kapoho House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Paradise awaits you at this brand new, charming home that sleeps five comfortably. The Master bedroom has a king size bed and a private bathroom, the second bedroom has a queen size bed and access to a shared bathroom, and the small den has a full size sleeper sofa if needed. All rooms have access to the wrap-around lanai that features ceiling fans, hammocks, dining furniture, lounge chairs and a tiki bar. For your grilling pleasure, there is a full sized gas grill on the lanai and if you feel adventurous, you can do a kalua pig “traditional style” using the imu pit.

The house has an open feel, with ceiling fans throughout. It has a modern, fully equipped kitchen, featuring stainless steel appliances, a long center island that can accommodate up to six at the breakfast bar in addition to the dining area.

The living room has a 32” flat screen TV, DVD player, satellite tv, and a nice collection of DVD movies.

Forgot to bring your mask and snorkel? No worries! We have some you can use, because a short walk from the house is the best snorkeling on the Big Island - the Wai ’Opae Tide Pools. The offshore reef protects the tide pools from the sometimes-harsh southeastern shores of Hawaii. As you explore the maze of pools, you will find corals, schools of juvenile fish, moray eels, sea urchins, sea turtles, etc… It is like being in an aquarium! When you come home from the tide pools, there is an outside shower you can use to rinse off.

If you are looking for a romantic getaway, or a family looking to spend quality time together, our home offers something for everyone in paradise.

NIce and open with great views

  • 5 of 5

The location was amazing for the daily relaxing activities. We snorkeled quite a bit, bummer about the die off in nov. THe shallows used to be so much better. But the deep pools are still good. Love that area! The short drive to Hilo to the farmers market was nice as well. The house has an awesome layout with the wide open kitchen and lanai. Poke was our main staple and we avoided restaurants since the house features a gorgeous kitchen. We also love how friendly the locals of this side of the island are.

Thanks!

A truly Beautiful Home, Spotless, Well Described

  • 5 of 5

The owners are very responsive to any questions you may have. When you stay here you realize much thought has gone into making this truly a home away from home. The ocean can be seen from the lanai and while there lay on the hammocks and let the stress roll away as you listen to the ocean. While there you can go to beaches, go on beautiful postcard drives, walk to the tidal pools and you are about 30 minutes to a zoo and much more. I would recommend this rental to anyone. Thank you for a lovely place to stay, I hope to come back again.

We loved every minute in your beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our stay by the tide pools! Snorkeling in the pools was amazing! We also enjoyed the Ahalanui pool and the Champagne pools! Great snorkeling! The house was better than we expected and we were SO happy we stayed there! We loved eating at Kaleo's! We all gave it glowing reviews! Thanks for leaving the guest book with recommendations and ideas! That was a great added touch! I highly recommend this property and would love to come back! Thanks Liza!

A Hidden Gem on the East Side

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Walea Hale really made our vacation and was a place we will never forget. The guide books do not do justice to how beautiful the area is and what a great spot for snorkeling the Wai 'Opae Tide Pools are. The tide pools are protected from waves yet very deep in some places, making it a great spot for the less experienced snorkelers and children to explore and see a lot of marine life. The home, just a few blocks from the tide pools, was beautiful, clean and spacious and had all the amenities one could wish for. The owner was very friendly and helpful, providing numerous recommendations for restaurants and attractions to see nearby. We were able to visit several of places on the list during our (too) short stay there and found everything recommended to be worthwhile. The reservation and check-in process was organized and very easy. We cannot wait to go back and spend more time at this lovely property and highly recommend it!

It's Such a Great Place, Leaving Will Be Hard!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place and even greater value! My wife and I stayed here for 5 days and wished it was more. Close enough to the tidal pools (walking) and to the Champagne Pond (easy bike) that we visited both nearly every day. The split floor plan can accomodate two couples or a couple with children. Hopefully we can one day return b/c we would stay here again in a second!
