Overview

Kapoho House Rental Photos and Description

Kapoho Warm Springs Rental with Thermal Pond 3BR/2BA

The guest house is located in a small, seaside community not far from the Cape Kumakahi lighthouse, at the easternmost point of the Big Island. This is a rural area with beautiful vegetation where a few wild chickens roost in some of the trees. The house is a very comfortable, totally private, 2-story 1500 sq. ft. home with large lanais adjoining both the kitchen and the master bedroom on the 2nd floor. This is a park-like setting with 2 tidal ponds, many palm trees and tropical plantings. There is a large tidal-controlled thermal swimming and fish pond (usually about 88 degrees Fahrenheit) with colorful reef fish in front of the house and a dock for relaxing and sunbathing.

It's a four minute walk down the street to the ocean to the best swimming entry into the world famous Wai’ Opae fish preserve tidal ponds (about ½ mile long and several hundred feet wide) which offer the safest swimming and unrivaled scenic snorkeling in east Hawaii. The large interconnected ponds are separated from the open ocean by a reef and are always calm even when the sea beyond the reef is wild.

Accommodations: Warm Springs Guest House has a King sized bed in the master bedroom on the 2nd floor, 2 singles in one downstairs bedroom, and a single in the other downstairs bedroom. There are 2 full baths: 1 on the first floor and another adjoining the master bedroom on the 2nd floor.

Amenities: There is a table with folding umbrella on the dock and a picnic table on the kitchen lanai. The kitchen is fully equipped including, granite counter tops, refrigerator-freezer, microwave oven, Jenn-Air radiant electric cooktop, coffee maker, coffee grinder, blender, a wide assortment of pots and pans, and an outdoor charcoal barbecue. There is a Wifi computer connection (see amenities) phone, satellite TV, DVD-CD player, and an AM-FM radio.

Linens including beach towels, all household supplies. A washer and dryer are also provided.

Activities: Swimming, snorkeling, skin diving, surfing, and a large public hot pond are all available nearby. Walking and bicycling around Kapoho are safe and pleasant. There are farmer's markets in Pahoa, on the road to Hilo, and in Hilo Town. Lava viewing is often possible from Kalapana (about 10 mi. from Kapoho) or in the National Park (depending on where the lava flows happen to be located at the time) and Volcanoes National Park has many hiking trails in both rain forest and desert environments. Sightseeing possibilities are nearly unlimited.

About Beverly

We have lived in on the Big Island for more than 45 years. I'm (Dallas) a retired geophysical volcanologist and for many years was on the staff of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. Beverly is a botanical artist specializing in endemic Hawaiian plants and also does tropical themed stained glass commissions.

Beverly purchased this house in 2000

Why Beverly chose Kapoho

We purchased this property for a family weekend retreat because it had the ambience one would expect from a home in the tropics on the coast ... not coldly functional but truly warm, inviting, and comfortable with wonderful ponds in a park-like environment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Overall Rating : Outstanding

Sylvia Gosline Oregon

We spent an idyllic week in this island paradise. The guest house is quaint but has everything you need. The pond out front provided many hours of entertainment for our 12 yr. old and for ourselves. A 5 min. walk brings you to the tidal pools with some of the best snorkeling I've seen. We'll definitely be back. I think Kapoho is the best kept secret in the islands.

A special thank you to Beverly, Dallas and Trevor. Beverly & Dallas your house was a lovely get away from the hussle and busle of life. You can just enjoy life around the house or go out adventuring, whatever your energy level. The minnows in the pond out front give you a great natural foot or back message. The tidal pools which we were so busy we didn't really enjoy until two days before leaving were wonderful. You thought about amenities we were not expecting you to, which was a very nice addition to an already delightful vacation spot. We would recommend this house whole heartly. You really have the option to relax or sight see, adventure, swim with the sea turtle's at Black Beach, the volcano park, waterfalls, horseback riding,luai and much more.Trevor wanted to thank you for all your help and advice prior to reaching Hawaii, you were a great help to us. You answered any questions we had, and gave us direction where we needed it. Again a sincere thank you for a wonderful 11 day vacation in your home

Private Oasis

  • 5 of 5
With an unique design and finely furnished with handcrafted and antique furniture along with interesting artwork, this large home with two lanais is a gem. The tidal pond surrounded by well maintained gardens is a great feature. It is ideally located only a block from direct access to snorkelling in the tidal pools. It is well stocked with essentials for the traveller. I highly recommend this private oasis.

Review of Kapoho Warm Springs

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property for 5 nights and had a wonderful visit. The home is clean, comfortable, and the owners have really provided everything you need - they've even left an assortment of snorkel gear, swim noodles and paddleboards and beach towels for you to borrow. We emailed the owner and he was kind enough to loan us a cooler for our day trips. The outdoor porch adjacent to the pond is wonderful for relaxing or entertaining with plenty of room for guests. Although there is a TV and DVD player, we never used them! The owner responded promptly by email to all of our questions and even let us delay our checkout by several hours. The property is beautiful, with more plants than I could have imagined and a pond full of interesting fish. The master bedroom is large, comfortable, and has a cool, comfortable terrace for reading, napping, or relaxing.

This area was perfect for us, as there were some 40 of us all staying in the same rental community and many were familiar with the area. If you plan to stay in this area you should plan to have a car. There are few local restaurants, so you can shop at the supermarket (about 20 minutes away) which will have everything you need. This a peaceful, quiet place that is perfect for anyone who wants to relax. A day trip or short drive will take you to all kinds of fun activities and wonderful places to visit. We would love to stay in this home again.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I LOVED this house! It was beautiful, serene, clean, and comfortable. There were many places to rest and relax on the property depending on the weather and time of day. We could sit by one of the ponds or on one of several decks. If you want a place to relax and refresh, this is it! I admit that I would have liked to have known in advance that the house does not have a full size oven, but we adjusted quite nicely to using the toaster oven and barbecue. The construction next door is continuing, but because there are so many relaxing venues to choose from, we were never really bothered by noise or activity. (The construction crew is really friendly, too!) We will book this house again the next time we visit Kapoho. It is just too good to pass up!

This is a great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed there for a week, and it was an excellent and quiet place. (Yes, there is a construction site next door, but in that week they were only working for one or two days, and they stop around 5 pm).
The description and the pictures give a very accurate impression of the place. The house and the garden were very clean and well maintained.
The location is good for trips to Kalapana, to the Volcano National Park, to Hilo and to Mauna Kea, which is possible as a relaxed day-trip.
We did some snorkeling in the tidal pools, which are just around the corner. Also swimming in the pool at the house is wonderful. The pool is large enough and deep enough that you can really swim in there.
We enjoyed sitting on the kitchen-lanai for breakfast and in the evening, watching the geckoes on the lanai or the fish in the pool (and the change of the tides in the pool, too!) Later in the evening we switched to the upper lanai to watch the stars and have a glass of wine.
This is a great place in a quiet neighborhood. The garden is a tropical setting with the palm trees and the pool. We had a wonderful time there, it was a perfect place for the end of our vacation, and it was really hard to fly back to frosty Germany…

Warm Springs Guest House

  • 5 of 5
Aloha Dallas and Beverly - I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed and appreciated the opportunity to reside in your lovely Warm Springs Guest House; the home and park like property exceeded our expectations in every way and were hard to leave from the moment we arrived. Your attention to detail both inside and out inspired a sense of being in a living art gallery; the ponds, plantings and their inhabitants were a constant pleasure to behold. Mahalo for making such a special place available; we will certainly keep you in mind next time we're in Kapoho!

sincerely,

Bob & Chizue
