About Dale

Our property was passed down by my parents who always dreamed of having an ocean front home where our family could gather and special memories would be created.

Several years ago, we decided to build a new, open plan home on the property and this is the result. It's been fun decorating our home with a few pieces of furniture that have been passed down from one generation to the next.

Enjoy our home and the tranquility of Kapoho!

Dale purchased this house in 1983

Why Dale chose Kapoho

If you are looking for a quiet, oceanfront home to relax, this is it! Create your special memories by coming to our home and enjoying what the Big Island has to offer.

Awesome Home - Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 8 days and the home and location could not have been better! Just steps from the grassy backyard to the warm clear water of the bay, snorkeling was great, the home immaculate, with all the amenities anyone could need. Nearby Pahoa has several great restaurants, especially nice is Kaleo's. The resident sea turtle made our stay even that much more enchanting. We were lulled to sleep each night to the sound of the Coqui Frogs and distant surf, even made a recording to bring home as a reminder of this magical place. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind words. Snorkeling right in front of our home in the calm ocean water is wonderful. I'm so glad you were able to enjoy the beauty of Kapoho and the surrounding area. Please come back!

We absolutely loved it

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't fully give this charming place justice. It really felt like home away from home and no hotel room can offer such a heartwarming feeling. We enjoyed preparing food and cooking as the kitchen was well equipped and new. We had all our meals in the gazebo. Snorkelling was so much fun and every morning we saw lots of beautiful fish and in the afternoon in addition some other fish turned up. We even spotted a rare scrawled filefish! And I just have to mention the green sea turtles. We noticed they liked staying overnight in our private pond. Once late in the afternoon there were three of them.

The house itself and the garden are very nice. We often kept windows open at night in the master bedroom to be able to hear the ocean and the tree frogs. The location is remote which is what we wanted. We browsed the information pack provided by Dale and updated by previous house guests and got lots of great tips on where to go and what to do. It was really easy to drive to the Volcano Park and to Waipio Valley. We also visited nearby Pahoa town and had a lovely Thai dinner at Ning's.

I seriously hope we can come back here again even though it's so far away from England. And I'd like to thank again Dale and Suzanne for their kindness, they were great to deal with and communicate with. Mahalo!

Fabulous property and location!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this property. When we arrived the home was spotless and very inviting. The caretaker was very welcoming and accessible. The house is new, spacious and well laid out. All appliances, furnishings and fixtures are new. There is a large enclosed garage with full laundry. There is an open-concept kitchen, dining and living area. The owner Dale, and caretaker Suzanne have gone out of their way to make this rental one of the best I have ever stayed in... and I am an owner of 2 vacation rentals myself so I understand what it takes to make a vacation a property not only comfortable, but special. We were on the Big Island to attend a birthday celebration up in Volcano Village. Several other attendees had also rented vacation homes on the same street in this private community. We were able to also visit their rental homes and ours was by far the nicest and had the best ocean views and access.

The oceanfront location is one of the best in the entire Kapoho area. This private neighborhood is THE place to stay in the Kapoho area. Access to the ocean is easy. The snorkeling and swimming are wonderful here. We saw beautiful sunrises every morning. In addition to the great ocean bay, ponds and tide pools there is a private pond in the back yard with large sea turtles... what a wonderful surprise! The roofed gazebo-style deck overlooking the ocean is a great place to enjoy your meals. The yard is nicely manicured with pathways and beautiful plants.

I would not hesitate to recommend this property and will definitely be returning in the future. I consider it to be a great bargain. You will not be disappointed. You can stop searching for a great place to stay, you've found it.

Fantastic stay at your beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your beautiful home! We especially enjoyed having access to the calm ocean right from the backdoor. Many hours were spent snorkeling with the sea turtles and admiring Hawaii's natural beauty. The house was clean and beautifully decorated -- it had everything we needed. The house also has a great location ... We visited Volcano National Park and Green Sand Beach. We also enjoyed buying fresh produce from the Hilo farmer's market. We will be sure to return again soon on our next visit to the Big Island!

Really get away from it all!

  • 4 of 5

This is a true get-away! We enjoyed our time in this peaceful setting and really felt that we were out of the tourist zone. After a busy week on the Kona side, this was a nice change of pace.

The neighborhood is very quiet, well kept and seemed very safe. The home is new, so it was clean and well maintained (but we didn't spend much time in the house since during the day we were out seeing sights or splashing in the water). Not having a dishwasher was a bummer, but the view from the kitchen window was so nice that I almost forgot!

The best part of this property is the ocean access. It is easy to get in/out of the water for snorkeling/swimming and there is plenty of fresh ocean water coming in and out of the little bay. There are several large sea turtles that like to hang out in the fish pond, so it was definitely a treat to see them. We spent one day at the Volcano (can't miss that, but it takes a good hour to get there) and ate one dinner in Pohoa (at Kaleo's - yum) but other than that we just hung out in the water.

We were very glad that the wi-fi was working well, as cell service is almost non-existent. The listing and photos are all very accurate and Dale (owner) and Suzanne (local manager) were both very responsive and available.

The only reason I didn't give the home 5 stars is that the location is pretty remote and thus fairly far from activities/food...I don't think I realized how far removed we were going to be. However, it's very easy to spend the whole day splashing in the water and watching for turtles if you have no other agenda!

Owner's Response: Aloha Sara, Thank you for writing a review on our ocean front home. Yes, Kapoho is truly a "get away from it all" experience. We love the quiet neighborhood but most of all we love being by the ocean and seeing the marine life. What a special treat it is to see the "honu" or turtle resting in our fish pond and watching the sunrise/sunset from our gazebo. I'm sure you and your family will have many pleasant memories of your trip to Hawaii. Please come back to visit us again and thank you again for writing a review. Mahalo, Dale
