GORGEOUS WHITE ORCHID TIDEPOOL RETREAT CLOSE TO OCEAN

Kapoho House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

The White Orchid is a beautiful house especially designed and built in 2007. The gardens surrounding the property are magical. White Orchid is located on the largest tidal pond in the area and emits a tranquil setting that feels like you are in your own oasis!

The ocean is right around the corner - a 2 minute walk to the Wai Opae marine coservation district, home to fish, coral and many varieties of sea life such as turtles. However, it is also a protected area for snorkeling safely. Wave breaks are further out and the snorkeling is amazing in a pond like setting.

The White Orchid is elegant and tastefully decorated throughout. It has a wonderful opening feeling, but is also very private. The furniture was desinged and imported especially for this house, as well as art work displayed by the owner who is an artist and whose paintings are displayed throughout the house. There are two private outdoor showers connected to each bedroom - totally delightful with tropical surroundings.

'Sunny' Kapoho is one of the micro-climatic areas on the east side of Hawaii and is known for having the best weather on the east side of Hawaii. We have the best air quality in the world and amazing tropical vegetation nearby, instead of the desert on the Kona side. Many wonderful activities are nearby, including Lava Tree State park, Po'hoiki which has great surfing and body boarding and picnicing. Down the red road (137) is Ahalanui warm pond, the black sand beach in Kehena and Kalapana at the end of the road which has lava viewing.

This house and area is a treasure you'll love to explore!

I'm a designer and painter living right in the same area of Kapoho. The weather is wonderful as well as the vegetation and the ocean. I swim in the tidepools several times a week; I find this a very special area.

I have two vacation rentals which I created the way I would want to vacation. They display beauty, elegance and tranquility in a tropical setting.

I hope my guests truly enjoy the house and the surroundings!

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

I enjoy living here and thought other people would also enjoy this amazing area.

The house has a feeling of being in an oasis, with the tidal pond and beautiful gardens. The house itself is warm, elegant and relaxing. It has all the amenities desired.

Idyll retreat close to tidepools

  • 5 of 5
We had a gorgeous stay in this very well designed and furnished modern home. Very spacious rooms, convinient outdoor showers, beautiful garden to look upon while having dinner on lanai. Will be happy to come back. We had to leave early because of Iselle. I hope there is not much damage to the house from the storm.

Rare treat

  • 5 of 5
Tricky finding the place after dark and not having stopped to pick up some food, this was the only draw back. The kitchen could have been cleaner for my taste...found some ants. Easily remedied on with the vacation. We grew to love this place and were not ready to leave. Outdoor showers were amazing and the place just felt like home which exactly what were looking for. Loved the quiet surrounds and peaceful sounds at night, loved our trips to many beautiful tropical gardens and so many beautiful and breathe taking views. Not to miss all the great fresh markets of food and flowers. Thankyou so much we loved it.

Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful house, beautiful view, well stocked with everything you could need on vacation in Hawaii. Aside from a slight booking mix-up, our stay was perfect and we would recommend this home to anyone looking for a relaxing, peaceful retreat. We fell in love with the outdoor showers and even caught some fish in the pond off the porch! 5 stars for a gorgeous home in a perfect location.

Two Weeks of Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5
Property as described! Owner is very helpful & easy to get along with making the renting experience pleasant. Only negative would be property could use a couple more lounge chairs outside on the deck for tanning but past that everything was in order. Outdoor showers were awesome, proximity to tide pools could not be better & the drive to town was never an issue for supplies. Would recommend the property for anyone looking to relax & enjoy the Hilo side of the Big Island.

PERFECT FOR MY 10TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

  • 5 of 5
My Husband and I and 8 friends, all well travelled, decided to go to Hawaii to celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary. We had never been to Hawaii before, and chose the Big Island because of the diversity of the landscape as well as the volcano culture. Friends had recommended that we stay in this part of the island because of the micro climate and they were right! We had one of the best weeks of all our travels and that is in large part do to the White Orchid and it's neighbor, Orchid Elua. Four of us stayed in the White Orchid and 6 in the Orchid Elua. The description given by VRBO was 100% accurate on both houses and the set up was perfect for our group because we were so close to one another....just a back yard away. One large tide pool between the two houses had been divided so that each house had it's own. The kitchens were well equipped and we spent a number of evenings doing group feasts where everyone cooked. And even though we were a large group, we also had all the privacy we needed and each bedroom had its own bathroom.
A word about the tide pools...there has been some derogatory misinformation put out about tide pools. But the owner (who's paintings grace both rental houses) has been swimming in them for 11 years and loves doing it. In the Ocean tide pools only minutes away, the coral is amazing when you get out past the channel. The University of Hawaii has done studies of the tide pools and has concluded that the occasional material on the surface is just runoff from the papaya fields and nothing sinister.
All in all I can strongly recommend the lovely White Orchid and the Orchid Elua rental homes.

Awesome Home

  • 5 of 5
Awesome home. The photos do not do this property justice, it's absolutely gorgeous. The kitchen is adequately stocked with cookware and utencels. Loved the outdoor showers and the jetted tub. Nice patio area with a grill, table, chairs overlooking the pond. It's just a short walk to the tide pools - 2 minute max. The snorkeling is great. I love this area. From this side of the island we explored the tidepools, Mackenzie Park, Issac Hale Beach Park, Ahalanui Warm Springs, Lava Tree State Park,the Volcano, Boiling Pots, Pe'epe'e Falls, Wai'ale Falls, Banyan Drive in Hilo,and so much more. Beautiful scenic drives down dirt roads. Don't miss Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens. Anyway, the home is clean and relaxing. The owner is super easy to deal with. I would recommend this home without hesitation to even the most discriminating traveler. I hope to return soon.
