Kapaau House Rental Photos and Description

4 Private houses with distinctive floor plans which sleep between 1-20 guests

Big Island Vacation Houses are a lush, tropical oasis located in beautiful North Kohala and offer an immersive Hawaiian experience removed from the tourist traps and bustle of other locales. In fact, it may have you believing you're a local.

A large variety of lush flora envelopes and divides the property, including hibiscus, birds of paradise, orchids, ferns, palms, an awesome banyan tree and fruit trees offering the freshest mangoes, papayas, bananas, and avocados that are yours for the picking. Savor oceanic, pastoral or jungle views as tropical birds sing, geckos chatter, the island breezes caress the trees, and the resonance of the tide rhythmically whispering in the distance.

This private Eden reveals four private houses spread out over 2 acres and presents a variety of accommodations, as each house offers it's own distinctive floor plan. The entire property sleeps 18-20, or if you have a smaller party you can rent just one or more of our rentals that individually sleep between 2-6. Please view our other rental listings at VRBO/215142 (The Banyan House), VRBO/152916 (The Mango House), VRBO/215410 (The Bamboo Suite) and VRBO/452049 (The Bungalow). All of the rentals come fully equipped with beach equipment including chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, snorkel, fins and masks.

The Properties:

The Banyan House is two stories of luxury, housing an impressive 9 foot solid koa-slab island in the 1st floor kitchen, large first & second story lanais (including a screened in area on the second story that can be used as a third bedroom), two queen sized bedrooms and 2 baths (including a private bali-stone outdoor shower).

The Mango House is a luxuriously designed 2,000 square foot house. The king sized master bedroom on the first floor accesses the 1,000 ft. of covered lanai deck, including a privatee outdoor bali-stone shower. The upstairs loft bedroom with another king bed as well as a trundle bed, has its own half bathroom and upper level private lanai. There is another full bathroom on the first floor as well.

The Bamboo Suite is a king sized master suite with its own kitchen, sitting area, dining table, bath, and lanai – including a private bali-stone outdoor shower. The unit also has a convertible sofa bed which sleeps two.

The Bungalow is a one bedroom house complete with a private bali-stone outdoor shower, king bed, deck, covered veranda, kitchen, living room with a queen pull out sofa and satellite tv.

The surrounding area:

You are a short drive from the historic town of Kapaau, home of the original King Kamehameha I Statue. The charming downtown area has great art galleries and several wonderful restaurant as well as Kamehameha Park which has great tennis courts, a public swimming pool, a skate park and wonderful children playground. There is even a small public golf course you can play on for a nominal fee. A short drive in the other direction leads you Keokea Beach Park, which is a great spot for a picnic. Continue on and you come to the end of the road at the stunning Pololu Valley Overlook where you can enjoy a spectacular view hike down to the valley.

A few minutes past Kapaau is the colorful town of Hawi, known as North Kohala’s biggest little town. It is home to a weekly farmer’s market that we think is one of the best on the island. Be sure to sample local varieties of popular fruits, like apple bananas, strawberry papaya and in season, super sweet white pineapple! Hawi is also the bicycle turnaround for the annual Ironman World Championship held every October and has a great selection of unique shops and tasty restaurants. The world famous Bamboo Restaurant is consistently voted one of the best restaurants on the island with a great lineup of live music featuring award winning Hawaiian musicians. There are also wonderful alternative healing practices located here, with massage therapists , acupuncture specialists, naturopaths, herbalists, and a variety of yoga styles represented.

North Kohala is perfectly located to take advantage of many fun activities including scenic coastal rides on horseback or ATVs, the Kohala Zipline, Kayaking the Kohala Ditch and hiking trails galore. Head up the mountain road to Waimea and experience one of the best scenic drives in the US, with incredible views of Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea and its observatories and a birds eye view of South Kohala with all its resorts and white sand beaches. The beaches in Kohala are the best on the island, including world famous Hapuna beach (Conde Nast rated it one of the top 10 beaches in the world), scenic Mauna Kea Beach, child friendly Spencer Beach Park and local favorite Beach 69.

Head down the coast towards South Kohala and you’ll discover many historical sites and parks along the coastline to enjoy. Lapakahi State Park is the site of an ancient fishing village and a great spot for snorkeling and whale watching. The harbor town of Kawaihae is home to a variety of tour companies offering scuba, snorkeling and whale watching tours. There’s also a nice selection of shops and galleries along with great dinning and music at the Blue Dolphin Restaurant or popular Café Pesto.

The ONLY Way to Experience Hawaii !!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family could not be more impressed with this retreat! We wanted to get away, relax and experience Hawaii like the locals. The houses sit in a rainforest like atmosphere and have the closeness and sometimes very needed private space so the whole extended family or friends enjoy the retreat.

We spend most of our time on the back porches that overlook a spectacular banyan tree and water views. The inside contains everything you need to make it home away from home including: grills, hair dryers, beach chairs, and working wifi!

If you want to explore village life you are just down the street from two famous villages in North Kohala. There is a local beach within walking distance and of course easy access to the public beaches located on Hwy 19. Hwy 230 is around the corner to take you to the breathtaking waterfalls of Waipio.

We have all ages staying together and there is something for everyone to enjoy.
We will definitely be back to this retreat and I know you will treasure your time here as well.
A big thanks to the housekeeping service and maintainence staff....impeccable.
