BIG, BEAUTIFUL AND COMFORTABLE - WALK TO THE TIDEPOOLS

Kapoho House Rental Photos and Description

Just recently built with all the amenities - this beautiful home in walking distance to the tidepools is a place you will love.

The Kapoho tidepoools, otherwise known as the Wai Opea Marine Wild Life Preserve, is home to the most incredible snorkeling reserve found anywhere in Hawaii. Just a 4 minute walk from the front door you'll discover this vast ocean region with many individual tidepools. These tidepools are safe, due to the outreaching volcanic shelf that keeps the pounding surf at bay. Some as deep as 40 feet and some as shallow as a couple of feet, but, all are teeming with tropical fish of all species, and the most beautiful coral formations you'll find anywhere in Hawaii.

Since Kapoho and our tiny oceanside village is right on the south east point, it receives the easterly tropical trade winds. It is incredible to sit and relax on the lanai, even on the hottest of days, and experience the cool trades.

The home, sits 500 feet from the ocean. The views from the wrap-around decks are wonderful. Coconut trees are everywhere. Natural fauna is in abundance in the whole community, and of course, from the rear wrap around walkway there is a nice ocean view.

The floors are all tiled, inside and out. The Lanai wraps around the upstairs and is covered by the extra large eves. You can walk all the way around to all the bedrooms that have slider glass doors/screens that open out to the decks, so anytime night or day you can just pull up a chair and relax and view the tropical rain forests. Even when it's pouring rain, because of the overhead roof, you'll never get a drop of rain on you.

There is a full open kitchen with all cookware, and appliances.

There are ceiling fans in every room, and on the lanai. The back star viewing lanai has a BBQ. There is a custom handicap friendly stair case that leads 14 feet up to house plus a two car enclosed garage with door opener. Very important because it keeps your rental car safe from falling coconuts.

The master bedroom with a private bathroom and large jacuzzi bathtub is a great retreat. With lots of fine art and a nice library, free phone calling to the mainland, wonderful neighbors next door and included Internet access, you will be very comfortable. Beyond the back yard is forest, no neighbor, and new neighbor building on the North side of the house. Lots and lots of privacy.

Reviewer Comments:
The house is beautiful and clean with great neighbors who are locals. The nearest town where you could buy food was not too far away. I would caution against saying "ocean views" or "only 500 yards from the ocean" because there is no ocean view and it is 500 yards to the lava rock you must pick your way across to get near the water. You cannot swim there at all. The tidepools were great, but again, you have to hazard the lava rock to enjoy them. Overall this was a fantastic place to stay and I am recommending it to every person I know and I would stay again no problem.

Reviewer Comments:
We have rented other homes--Kahonua Hale is not up to island standards. We're very chill, don't want fancy, but clean would have been nice. We phoned the management company as we drove there in order to find out how to let ourselves in. It was dark and we were new to the area. They told us that when we drive into the driveway the headlights will shine on the lock box. However, that wasn't true. We finally found the lock box behind the garage. When we entered, the house smelled of gas. We discovered that a burner on the stove was left on a bit - no flame but on enough to let gas leak. The table by the front door, on the lanai, had a dirty ash tray, with butts & ashes and something else too -- maybe sea weed. The (only) sponge on the sink was dirty & smelly; a liner to put under a dish drying rack on the counter was stained and filthy ... The refrigerator had 2 notes, attached by magnets, in handwriting we could barely read, with stuff like "please cover the TV when you leave" and "take out the garbage" but gave no info as to where to put it. No welcome, here's an introduction to Kapaho, no info at all. Kapoho is cool. The house is near tidepools, and we went there to be near marine life and nature. We wandered around and found them; a map or directions would have been a hospitable bit of info to have at the house. When we rented the house, six months or so ago, the management company had just been retained. But that should have been enough time to figure out where the lock box is, where to dump the trash, and how to clean the place.

Reviewer Comments:
We loved our stay at the house, even though it rained (torrential) amounts while we were there we found lots to do and see all over the island. The house was larger than we needed but was beautiful and well kept.

We had never stayed in a rainforest before and didn't know what to expect.The nightly rain, birds and toads lulled us to sleep and woke us up.

The last day we were there it cleared up early for some spectacular star gazing off the back lanai as we tried to get to the observatory bt the road was closed due to rain. I guess we just will have to come back...

Since the 1st vacation rental didn't have phone, wifi, and Verizon's not working with cells, we moved to this property for 3 days...OMG, horrible bug problem, land on your face and TV you can't even watch since they are landing everywhere...dishwasher broke on us, hammering next door early in the morning, horrible experience, the only great thing was the lanai and the painted pictures from their mother on the walls with the bugs all over them, they are beetle bugs and there are literally 100's of them, screens were closed, it was disgusting...this place has stairs and high bath tub so NOT for elderly...will never stay there again! DVD player couldn't work it in living room and TV doesn't get channels in bedroom...not impressed

Comfortable Home in Interesting Area

  • 5 of 5
My family of 5 stayed at this beautiful home in Kapoho and enjoyed so much the relaxing atmosphere. Snorkeled the tide pools, hiked in Volcano National Park and soaked in the nearby hot pond. We were only there a few days and could have easily enjoyed more. Loved listening to the rain pound on the roof and moon peeking through the clouds. The owner and manager were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone. Mahalo!
