HONU'S HIDEAWAY - A WARM, INVITING TIDE POOL JUST OUTSIDE YOUR DOOR!

Kapoho House Rental Photos and Description

A true hidden gem! Stay in this stylish house and walk down the private steps to swim or snorkel in what may be the most charming, tranquil and inviting tide pool in the area. Prime Kapoho location a short walk from Champagne Pond...

HONU'S HIDEAWAY IS ONE OF THOSE HIDDEN GEMS that you appreciate more with every step you take through the house and grounds. Completely remodeled in 2010, the owner spared no expense to make the house comfortable and stylish, always thinking of the guest experience. It's a perfect place to relax with the large living/dining/kitchen area under the high ceilings that are covered in beautiful tropical woods. The home has a contemporary feel with nice appliances, dishes, linens, and the most gorgeous granite countertops we've seen.

Enjoy this short preview.

WHEN YOU'RE NOT SNORKELING OR SWIMMING, you'll find a large flat-screen satellite TV with Dish Satellite, Blu-ray DVD player, IPod/FM stereo system and Wireless Broadband in the back bedrooms for your convenience. Honu's Hideaway has 3 bedrooms, all with classy Hawaiian decor and high-quality firm beds. The large master bedroom has a king bed and en suite bath, the second bedroom has a queen bed, and the third bedroom has twins. Use of all 3 bedrooms will increase the cleaning fee. Both full baths have wide pocket doors for those with limited mobility; one with shower/bath and one with low step in shower.

BUT WAIT! THE BEST PART IS THE POND! This may be the most charming, tranquil and inviting shared tide pool in the area; varying in depth from 2-12 ft. Just one glance and you can visualize yourself immersed in the warm 89 degree water, swimming, snorkeling or floating for hours on one of the rafts thoughtfully provided by the owner. Beautiful palm trees and tropical plants surround the pond.

IF YOU CAN TEAR YOURSELF AWAY FROM THE POND, relax on the outdoor lanai with top-of-the-line wicker furniture, or have a barbecue and dine at the outdoor teak table that seats 4 comfortably. (The BBQ is both gas - supplied - _and_ briquets - BYO). You'll find a large flat-screen TV with Dish Satellite, Blu-ray DVD player, IPod/FM stereo system and Wireless Broadband in the back bedrooms (only) for your convenience.

WHEN YOU'RE READY TO EXPLORE THE AREA, Champagne pond (for snorkeling) is only a 1 minute walk and less than a block away, so you can easily hear the sounds of the ocean from the house. Wai’opae/Kapoho Tide Pools offer great snorkeling and are only a 2 minute drive out the gate.

HONU’S HIDEAWAY ENDEAVORS TO BE A GREEN HOUSE; using green cleaners wherever possible, have installed solar hot water, use fans only not air conditioning, have a clothesline for guests use, encourage guests to conserve electricity, have green shopping bags available for guests use and offer compost and garbage recycling facilities. The house affords privacy as it has a lovely bamboo fence and is located within the lovely walking area of Beach Lots, the gated community. This is NOT a party house, the owner lives just down the street, this is a tasteful well-appointed home and we endeavor to keep it that way, for your enjoyment.

HONU'S HIDEAWAY IS WAITING FOR YOU at an affordable price! Once you stay here and experience the home, pond and grounds, you'll know why we call this place a true hidden gem. If it is booked for your dates, check out the sister property, LUANA HIDEAWAY just two doors down and created by the same decorator!

Year-round rate range is $125 - $255 per night, depending upon party size and dates of your visit. Cleaning fee ranges from $125 to $175, also depending upon party size., one-time $35 damage waiver fee.

Hawaii has called me thrice. I first discovered this secret bit of paradise in 2006, on the last leg of a trip from Australia, where I had lived for 24 years. In 2009 it all came back to me, when I decided that I needed to purchase a holiday rental for my own retreats (sanity) from too much work. I love Old Hawaii, the uniqueness of this area and the wonderful year round perfect micro-climate here.

When I sold my business in 2011 happily but unexpectedly; it seemed my plans were already laid out for me, with a home here waiting (Honu’s Hideaway) as Hawaii called me again for the third and final time when I moved here permanently. My guests had so enjoyed the house and requests to rent it continued to come in. Frankly I did not yet know how to completely relax, so when my neighbor’s house just 2 doors down came up for sale and now with all the time in the world and a knack for remodeling and some experience, I decided to purchase it and turn it (Luana Hideaway) into the great entertaining and lounging house.

Well the best laid plans of mice and men, can and do go astray; when I eventually realized that I was really cut out to be a farm girl with lots of space for gardening and for me and my dogs, as I had been living for the last 12 years. In 2012 I purchased a lush tropical 4 acre farm 10 minutes away, so now I have the best of both worlds; I have my farm lifestyle and when there are check outs or vacancies, I get to come and enjoy relaxing in the warm ponds. I am glad I can share this wonderful experience with you and the bounty of my garden.

A hui hou,

Kathy Young

Reviewer Comments:
The only downside to this place is you have to close all the doors and windows at night to lessen the noise from the coqui frogs. They are amusing the first night but by the third night a pain.

This is a fantastic property in a nice, quiet location. The tide pool is an awesome bonus to the house and we enjoyed taking a dip every morning or afternoon. It's a great feature that will make you want to stay at the property! It's about 45 minutes to Volcanoes National Park and an hour to Punalu'u Black Sand Beach. We highly recommend this place!

Reviewer Comments:
This was our 2nd of 3 places on the Islands (our only on the Big Island) and it was a blast. The tide pool on the property was warm and inviting (and someone who is afraid of water in our group even learned how to snorkel in it - a HUGE deal for her!!)

The property is close to a lot of nice snorkeling. It's a ways away from everything else, which we liked. It's a quite gated community. We did make day trips to the Botanical Gardens in Hilo (neat) and Volcanoes NP. Not to far for any of that, just enough to not be in a big city.

The house itself is gorgeous and so very well kept, inside and out. The landscaping is very well done.

A wonderful place I'd stay at again!

The house, garden and especially the warm pond exceeded our expectations!!!!! I had no idea how wonderful and relaxing the stay would be. Everything one could want is provided at Honu's Hideway . The furnishings, bedding, towels, appliances all high end. We arrived at dusk and the house was easy to find and very private behind bamboo fences. The frogs were chirping and you could hear the ocean in background. It was like stepping into paradise. My only regret is that I booked too few days. Once you get to the house relaxation seems more important than sightseeing. The house is that good.
