My wife and I are local residents, we were born and raised in Kailua, Oahu. My wife is a teacher and I am a contractor. We have two kids, and two dogs. We love to travel and meet new friends!

Jack & Kealoha purchased this house in 2012

We chose this location because of the peacefulness, tranquility, and relaxation you cannot find anywhere else and to get away from the hustle and bustle. Not to mention the amazing and refreshing Tide Pools &Champagne Ponds! And approximately an 35 minute drive to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Boat & walking tours to see lava flowing into the ocaen are available.

The biggest benefit is that our home is just down the road from the Wai Opai Tide Pools and Champagne Ponds and swimming with all types of sea life. Also you will be staying in a brand new built home starting in Dec. Also just a 5 minute drive to Isaac Hale State Park for Boat & Lava Tour. (WOW!!) a must see.

GREAT HOUSE!

This was a fabulous house and suited our needs perfectly! We are planning to go there again next year. The contact people and cleaning person were all so nice and obliging. Could not have asked for anything more.

The house is AMAZING. The beds are comfortable, there were ample towels, the kitchen was totally loaded with pots and pans and ready for use, a large washer and dryer to wash all our sandy towels, complimentary snorkeling equipment, bikes, huge TV's, the works!!
The house was a little too warm during the day with no air conditioning, but the big huge ceiling fans helped. The kids found it a little warm also. We truly enjoyed the porches and the hammock, though and were out for most of the days.
We loved going to the tidal pools and just hanging out in the water.
The owner was nice and helpful and easily accessible.
Really happy all around.

IT'S PERFECT, BUT NOT FOR EVERYONE

It's Perfect, but not for everyone
  • 5 of 5
I found the owners to be easy to work with and their advice very helpful. I recommend you trade some emails with them before you get there and read the guest book when you do get there.

The house is well-appointed and spacious. The six of us never felt cramped together. It is in a neighborhood that is a mix of locals and other houses built primarily for vacation rentals. I think someone else noted that there is no dishwasher; that is true, but I came to think it made good sense for the climate. It is very humid, and warm enough during the day that you do not want to be adding the heat and humidity that a dishwasher creates. I would put more towel racks up, but that is a minor thing.

We never made it to the champagne ponds, but the snorkeling in the tidal pools was fantastic. Several of us hit the pools most of the days and we never got tired of it. Saw turtles, schools of moorish idols, zebras, several varieties of parrotfish, trumpetfish, and lots of other fish I can't remember the names of. The pools are a bit different each visit with time of day and tide. The end nearer the house has shallower pools and is appropriate for kids and those who are not strong swimmers. The farther end has larger, deeper pools appropriate for stronger swimmers. The closer to the open ocean you get, the colder the water gets, and you see different things. Generally well warmer than the beaches at Hilo. It was seldom crowded, despite the fact that it attracted both locals and vacationers. Walk there in the early morning and it may be just you. Lava rock is sharp. Try to not touch the coral with fin or glove.

There are lots of things to see and do within an hours drive or so, but there is not a lot close by. A couple of the teenagers were a little bored, or a little tired of riding in a car to go do something. Hilo is about an hour off; lots to do there. We learned that the good whale watching is on the Kona side; so, we took an overnight there. Laughed when I saw the sunburned people snorkeling in murky water, excited about seeing some dull fish. General impressions are that the Kona side is fake and more expensive, and the Puna side is more real.

It rained, I think, every day, but it never rained long enough to stop us from doing whatever we wanted.

Cooking some fresh ahi steaks on the grill, adding some fruit from the farmer's market, and eating with family in the tropical breeze is a good way to spend an evening.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your staying at our home and enjoying the beauty and adventure activities that the Big Island has to offer. Sounds like you all needed more time to see so many other things to do in a short period of time.

CANNOT WAIT TO GET BACK TO THIS BEAUTIFUL HOUSE.

  • 5 of 5
The house was exactly as advertised. Except, we were warned it would rain every day at Hilo, and it did not rain once. Good job Jack! :-)
Seriously the house was large comfortable and well furnished. I do not understand the review of one star only, the only thing I would agree with that reviewer was there is no dishwasher.
But that's why you bring your entire family. We had eight total persons and this large house afforded everybody space to relax. And there is a nice Grass lawn. Exceptional snorkeling is only three blocks away. There was a large selection of snorkel mask, but only one pair of fins. And there were two nice new mountain bikes for cruising around. A park with a large heated swimming area On the shore between the jungle and sea is only five minutes away. Jack answered every phone call and message promptly, even the dumb questions I had which were already answered in the description. There is so much to do on the Hilo side we never even got to the north or south shore. Many sites are an hours drive but we enjoyed driving around the island.
I thought perhaps the neighbors would be noisy but they were not. You do have to get used to the "jungle noises" but I suspect that is true everywhere on the island. Tree frogs and singing birds throughout the night. The house is not air-conditioned but we left all the windows and fans on and it was totally doable. The only mistake we made in planning was not to stay longer.

Again this house was exactly as pictured and as advertised and Jack was a joy to work with. Have fun.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
Our party consisted of four girls ready for the 4th of July weekend. When we arrived at the house we were eager to go inside. The house was beautiful, clean and very spacious. The hammock on the outside lanai was very comfortable, and it was big enough for two! We often found ourselves fighting over who was lucky enough to relax on it. The ones who got booted off the hammock got to relax on the living room couches. They were comfortable enough to sleep on! All of the televisions had Direct TV with a lot of channels to choose from. Having three flat screen TV's in the house was perfect because everyone could watch a different channel.
The upstairs loft was where we spent most of our time. It was very open, and it was easy for us to all be together. Since there was a California King, three girls were able to sleep on the bed while the other preferred the couch. Having two kitchens (no stove upstairs) was convenient for us to store our snacks and late night cravings. Although there is a bathroom upstairs, we found ourselves showering downstairs. The dual shower head was a luxury we don't have at home, and the jacuzzi tub was very relaxing.
We had planned a set of activities prior to arriving, however we found the "Kapoho Hale Binder" filled with many suggestions. One of our unexpected stops were the tide pools located 5 minutes away from the house. The house provided snorkels, tubbies, and fins for us to use on our adventure. The tide pool water was very clear, beautiful and we got to see an array of fish!
At the end of our trip, we were sad to leave our "Home Away From Home". We will definitely keep this house in mind when traveling back to the Big Island.

I want to say that we had an unbelievable stay at this amazing home! It was very spacious and very accommodating for us! The home is located very close to the tide pools which are absolutely AMAZING & a nice neighborhood for a bike ride, walk or run & very relaxing to stay. Everything in the home was high end & we felt like we were in a very luxurious place. We will definitely be staying here again & referring this place to everyone we know!!!
