Kapoho Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Relax in this Comfortable 2 Bedroom Vacation Spot Paradise

New Reduced Rates. Summer openings are filling rapidly. Book soon, so you can enjoy the summer breezes...at Kapoho Breeze.

Location: Kapoho, Champagne Ponds, Puna District, Big Island, Hawaii, USA (Gated Community With Warm Ocean Water Swimming!) View Map

Accommodations: This is an apartment on the ground floor, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath and an extra outdoor shower (Sleeps 4). This is a wonderful location for a vacation in our Kapoho Paradise

Fabulous new home with snorkeling, kayaking, surfing and swimming only a block away! Nice home built with quality materials, and stocked with just about anything you would want. You'll love it.

OUTDOORS:

*The lanai has a gas grill, comfortable wicker furniture, a Hot Tub and outdoor shower. There are plenty of ‘outdoor’ towels to use after your hot tub or shower, conveniently located next to the shower.

*The yard is HUGE, giving you plenty of room to spread out. Enjoy the beautiful gardens or set up some croquet or bocci. Enjoy the paradise.

INDOORS:

*Living Area: With the entrance from the lower lanai, this area hosts the television, the office area and plenty of kitchen space. There is a dining room table in the hallway and a beautiful teak sculpture of dolphins. The comfortable tropical furniture makes this a great place to hang out to watch some movies. Did we say movies? We have over 700 movie titles to choose from, all housed in a separate Wi-Fi storage disk. Complete instructions are provided for the TV, movies and sound system.

*The ‘Orchid’ Bedroom: This bedroom is located in the lower level and boasts a beautiful view of the orchid wall. The Queen sized bed (with new mattresses this spring) is very comfortable and the room has a dresser, nightstands, reading lamps, ceiling fan, a desk and comfortable chairs. Tropical gone comfortable.

*Bathroom: This bathroom is located directly across the hall from the Orchid Bedroom and has a Travertine surround Jacuzzi tub and shower and Travertine floors. Naturally, there are plenty of fresh fluffy towels, shampoo/conditioner, body soap and a hair dryer.

*The ‘Honu’ Bedroom: Is comfortably furnished with a queen sized bed (with new mattresses this spring), antique furnishings, ceiling fan and plenty of room for your luggage.

*The kitchen area has a full sized refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven and other appliances to make your stay comfortable. There is not a range top in the apartment. The lanai however, has a gas grill with a side burner for cooking in the cool of the Kapoho breezes. You really will appreciate having the cooking surface outside!

* Office: The office is set up, if you really MUST work while you are on holiday, and has free Wi-Fi, and a built in desk. If you have to do work while you are visiting, this is an comfortable place to get the job done. There's also a door leading to the lower lanai, for an extra-spacious feeling.

Also:

* Garage: This is where all the toys (2 bicycles, 4 boogie boards, 1 two person kayak, and 1 surf board) live. There is plenty of snorkel gear, but we can't guarantee we'll have your size. This is also where the electric golf cart lives. As a renter, you may use this for to drive around the beautiful, peaceful neighborhood.

Other information about what we provide:

* Shampoo, Hair Conditioner, Hand/Body soap, Dish soap, Laundry soap, Toilet Paper (If this seems silly to mention, we agree. We stayed at a distant vacation rental where they gave us 'starter' toilet paper. It was a very short roll of TP in each bathroom. We don't want you to have to experience that.) Plenty of kitchen towels, sharp knives, dishware, glassware and silverware.

* Hair Dryers

* Umbrellas--just in case

More details about our home:

* Our home is built with top-quality materials with attention to every detail. The lanai is beautiful slate. On the inside, the floors are all tile with knotty pine trim everywhere. There is plenty of room to spread out.

Looking for something with more space. See if the calendar has to offer on our other listing...

This is our home and we love it here. We are retired from the corporate world, but not from the love of life and the great adventures of the world.

Susan purchased this apartment in 2008

We came to Kapoho in 2008 because of the beauty and serenity. After years in the corporate world, we both decided that this is the best place to retire. We have a huge garden, enjoying swimming in Champagne Ponds, and all of the other beautiful swimming locations in our area.

We are both active in the Kapoho and the greater Hilo area and love to participate in the wonderful offerings this side of the island offers.

Thermally heated tidal ponds are common in this area and some are warmer than others. This is the only area of Hawaii with these, so it is truly unique. The Marine Sanctuary is a 5 minute bike ride (or a 15 minute walk). Incredibly colored/shaped corals and small schools of good-sized fish. Big schools of smaller fish. We have travelled quite a bit, and this gem is easily accessed--what a treat. Or you can bike up and down the coast, with minimal car interference, even though we don't have official bike lanes. Or you can walk along the coast, towards Cape Kumukahi, the most Eastern point of the island, and the state.

Great place

  • Stayed: Feb 2014
We toughly enjoyed our stay in this roomy, clean property. The hosts were available to help with recommendations for activities and the kayak, bikes and various other gear really gave many options for activities.

The only negative was you could hear footsteps from the floor above.

Owner's Response: Aloha Jack,
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We have always been concerned about the noise transfer to the apartment through the floor. That is why we are getting the apartment ceiling insulated, later this month.
Mahalo for taking the time to write and confirm...yes, the insulation is needed!

the golf cart is a winner

  • Submitted: Mar 10, 2014

Out of many places we stayed at on Big Island, this is definitely one of our favorite. It is absolutely THE favorite for my 8 year old daughter who was able to ride a golf cart and cannot wait to go back to do it again. Susan and John were the most welcoming hosts, and the house is very well prepared. It was my 70+ old parents' first time on the island, and they both were able to swim in Champaign Pond and are now telling their friends that it was one of the best vacation they ever had. Thank you Susan and John!

Wonderful Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 6, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
John and Sue are wonderful hosts - we regretted not getting to know them better - but next time!! This is a wonderful home in a gated community very close to the tide pools and the champagne ponds. It is the most well appointed rental - they have thought of everything (including spices and cooking items in the refrigerator) that you would need - just as if you had stocked your own home. They also provide a golf cart, snorkel gear, boogie boards, fishing equipment and more. We enjoyed it all. They have put together a great reference book and their recommendations were excellent. Beautiful home and nicely located for going into town (Pahoa) or even into Hilo. Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed yourselves during your stay. Hope to see you again someday...and find that elusive fishing hole.
Mahalo.

Don't forget - Hawaii Island has an active volcano. Drive about 20 miles, through the jungle on a coastal highway to view the lava entering the ocean. We're also just over an hour drive from Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park, the historical Kilauea caldera and home of Pele, the fire goddess. You can check out Hot/Warm Ponds, Champagne Pond, and Wai O Pae Marine Sanctuary all within walking, or short biking distance. Because of all the warm springs in the area the ocean water is a little bit warmer here, around 5 degrees F -- not a lot, but for us every degree helps.
