About Donna LaHue
Now retired we have settled near Big Sky, Montana. We enjoy the contrast between our home here in the Rocky Mountains and the lush, tropical setting of Wai Opae by the sea. Both homes allow us to live connected with the natural environment and play hard.
Donna LaHue purchased this house in 2010
Why Donna LaHue chose Kapoho
After many years visiting the Big Island we finally found just the right spot to build our island getaway. Wai Opae is a unique place; off the beaten path in a friendly community of year round residents and visitors. Situated on the edge of the beautiful marine preserve, we enjoy fabulous snorkeling every day!!
What makes this house unique
Wai Opae is all about restoring the spirit, body and soul. There is something about living (or vacationing) on the edge of this island, in the shadow of an active volcano, that keeps us in touch with Hawaii as the ancients knew and loved it. Located in rural Puna district Wai Opae is the a great starting point for adventures around the island!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Here is the review I wrote:
A wonderful place to relax and reconnect with nature. The accommodation was in a great shape and clean.
Tide pools were 3 minutes, walking distance, from the house. They were filled with sea-life, always calm, and safe for swimming (during any weather). Green, lush, colorful rain forest.
The town (Pahoa) offers everything a traveler might needed (food, souvenirs, entertainment, gas, etc.)
ADVICE: Please don't leave anything valuable in your vehicle (rent car) while parking anywhere by road . Unfortunately, even paradise is occupied by individuals who will 'make living' by stealing. That's the world we live in.
Thank you Mitzi for a warm welcome, and thank you Donna for making this trip easy to book and find.
We have a ton of wonderful memories!!!
