PRIVATE 1500 SQR FT SWIMMING POND

Kapoho House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Aloha and Welcome to Nanea Kai. We are very proud to share our 1,800 sqr. ft. island style home with you. As you drive past your wooden sun carved gates, you will enter into your own private sanctuary.Our family living room is made up of Hawaii's prized Koa wood. Many windows let the cool breeze through as well as EACH room has its own ceiling fan. Our large kitchen is a great gathering spot and has a granite counter island that everyone can gather around. As you walk out onto the wrap around entertainment deck, you will look into the 1,500 sqr. ft. thermal heated swimming pond. Our pond ranges from 2ft.- 10 f. at the deepest spot. This pond is fed from under ground springs from the ocean so it rises and falls with the tide.This is also a great filtering system that keeps the water very clean and clear and with a temperature that is normally in the 80's. This makes snorkeling in the pond a pleasure. We do supply some snorkeling equipment as well as a hot/cold out side shower. If you take a right outside our drive way, you will see a tunnel of trees which leads to tide pools as well as the breathtaking view of the ocean. Walk another 6 minutes and your will be at the Wai' Ope Fish Reserve. See so many colorful fish as well as the different colored corals. This is Not a place you will find packed with people. A 5 minute drive will take you to Ahalanui warm springs park . Pahoa is a 15 minute drive with quaint restaurants and to do your marketing. Hilo Town is 30 minutes away where you can visit the farmers market with all its exotic fruits for sale as well as souvenirs, surf shops, restaurants, diving rentals , ect.. Across the street is a black sand beach were you can watch the canoe teams practice or walk and look for beach glass. Then theres the Volcano National Park you want to visit. Walk through lava tubes and see the steam vents. The Volcano Golf course is right above the park as well as the Volcano Winery. If its night time lava cascading down the volcano you want to see, thats about a 20 minute drive from our home. Viewing is free and it opens to the public at 5 p.m. Bring a jacket, flashlight (theres some at the house) and water. Park rangers are there to make sure everyone is safe. My favorite thing to do is just lay by the pond , feed the fish and enjoy the sound of the ocean. Hope you'll visit us soon.

Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Nanea Kai in late July/early August for 6 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. There were 7 of us in our party including 8 & 10 year old grandchildren. The tidal pool was a big hit, both because of the Koi (the kids named each one) and because we could practice snorkeling in it. The house itself is well maintained and up to date. It was wonderful to have a washer & dryer to use. Beds were comfortable and we really appreciated the fans in every room. We traveled to the volcano, the Rainbow Falls, into Hilo, to Mona Kea Visitor’s Center, and across the island to swim and snorkel. We found restaurants & grocery stores in Pahoa although we did stop at Safeway in Hilo as we went through there.

We hope that Tropical Storm Iselle didn’t do damage to the property so that others will be able to enjoy it, also. Thanks, Kim, for a great time. We appreciated your house, all your snorkeling gear & boogie boards, and especially your flexibility on our departure time. Our 10 year old grandson summed it all up by saying, as we were leaving, “I’m going to miss this place.”

THE place to chill

  • 5 of 5
Exactly what we needed and more. The property is well kept and comfortably furnished. Ample room for living, sleeping, and just relaxing. As a foursome, we found the space comfortable enough to convenene and also escape to solitude as needed. The wrap around lanai is a real bonus. The place is also furnished for home cooked meals, grilling, and laundry. A big plus!

Kapoho itself defines chill. The tidepools down the street are serene.

I most definitely will be staying here again when in Kapoho.

Snorklers' paradise!

Snorklers' paradise!
  • 5 of 5
If you're up for an adventure, this house is for you! We stayed here for three nights to see a different side of the Big Island, and it was an experience we won't forget. The house is absolutely gorgeous, in great condition despite the little geckos and bugs that make it inside, and amenities like fast Internet, cable, extra-nice beds and strong ceiling fans to make it comfortable. Beware: the coqui frogs that croak all night long on this side of the island are LOUD (like constant crickets chirping), and you will hear them. But don't let them bother you. Our young boys got used to it; we told them it was like camping. The koi pond outside was beautiful and our boys snorkled in it and loved feeding the fish every day with the food provided. We didn't get to relax outside though because the mosquitos kind of got to me. Bring bug spray. Also Kapoho is a 20(?) or so min drive from the nearest grocery store/restaurant in Pahoa, so make sure you're stocked up on goods. Pahoa is a fabulous little town - we loved Kalei's Restaurant. The house huge enough for two or more families to share; we only used two of the bedrooms. We wanted to sleep in the upstairs loft but it was too hot. The few random kids' toys & books available were appreciated. The absolute best thing about the Kapoho house was the 10-min walk (with young kids) to the Kapoho tide pools. Crystal clear, gorgeous, easily accessible, quiet and uncrowded, pristine and safe for kids to explore. We snorkled here every day, saw tons of fish and made great memories. Thanks for this amazing experience, and being instantly available when our cable went out, Kim!

Owner's Response: Glad you got to experience our home and all the beauty around it. As you know the hurricane came in and destroyed the majority of it. So I am very happy that you will always have a memory of old Hawaii and maybe come back and see the new beauty that is to come

Birthday weekend

  • 5 of 5
My stay at Nanea Kai was fabulous! The house was spacious with many comfortable and cool areas to lounge and relax. The fish pond was gorgeous and so inviting. The water was cool, but not too cold and had healing properties that relaxed my entire body. The bathroom was spacious and the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. I would recommend this vacation rental to anyone who wants a break from the hustle and bustle of a commercial hotel and would enjoy skinny dipping in a private pond and star gazing at night. Loved it!!

May you and your family return to make many more beautiful memories.

Serene Location

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time while at this house. The beds are very comfortable and we loved the open layout of the house. The house was clean and didn't lack in anything. We appreciated having the use of snorkel equipment and also that there is a washer and a dryer. It was a great place to stay while visiting the east side of the island and we were sad to leave it.

Tropical Relaxation

  • 5 of 5
My family had an amazing vacation at Nanea Kai. This home is located on a quiet street in Vacationland. The property itself is gated, and offers a lot of privacy. The house was clean, comfortable, and well maintained. Kim was a pleasure to work with and a wonderful host. My kids enjoyed feeding the koi fish every day and swimming in the warm swimming pond. This home is close walking distance to the tide pools. This home is peaceful and a great starting point to explore this side of the island.
