Overview

Kapoho Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

One of the original beach houses In Kapoho Beach Lots, Jo Mitchel's is right on the water. You can't beat this location for easy access to the warm, calm inlet waters. You can relax in the lounge chairs or sit on the bench on the concrete landing, then just walk down the stairs right into the thermally heated fresh and salt water and swim and snorkel with the colorful fish and giant sea turtles that come right up in front of the property each day. Just a few blocks walk to the Champagne Pond where you can soak in the 80 - 90 degree water, too! The beach house is comfortable and relaxing - not fancy! But it has what you need to enjoy an old-fashioned Hawaiian tropical vacation. It's fully furnished with 2 bedrooms each with a comfortable queen bed plus 1 single bed in living room. Sleeps up to 5 people. Note: You walk through one bedroom to get to the the stairway to the master bedroom. It's well stocked with linens, towels, kitchen utensils, plus snorkel gear and boogie boards for water fun! You can fall asleep to the tropical breeze blowing through the windows of the master bedroom, and waves breaking a few feet away. Get away from the hustle and bustle and relax here! There's an indoor bathroom with a shower, or just a few steps away from the main house is a separate private bathroom with large shower. There's a covered old fashioned barbeque area with a picnic table on the lawn and tables under the covered lanai. There's Satellite TV provided. No internet to distract you here from your lovely vacation! (Note: AT&T cell works here). There's a laundry room with washer and dryer.

We had a great time and enjoyed the water being so close. Watching the turtles and beautiful colored fish was a bonus.

This was our family's third stay at Jo's, and we are planning our next visit already. We go to Jo's to be with family, swim, and relax. We never want to leave, and our stays keep getting longer.

Great location. Property tends toward rustic. Great place to relax. We had what we needed.

I was in the water several times a day and there is lots of fish and a few turtles always around. Visibility varied. If you like snorkeling do not miss the Waiopoe tidepools that are a short drive away. They are fabulous. We shared this house with another couple. House layout is very odd. One bedroom with 1/2 bath is upstairs and very light and airy. 2nd bedroom is small with 1 little window. To get to the upstairs bedroom you have to either walk through the downstairs bedroom, or go outside and in another door. We spent all our time on the lanai or in the water. The separate outside shower/bath was really handy. There is no dishwasher or kayak as we were led to infer from the info, but we didn't mind. Closest restaurants are about 20 minutes away in Pahoa. We used the stove and outdoor BBQ most nights. Fresh produce is available in the area and there are a couple of markets in Pahoa. The property was so pleasant we preferred preparing our own meals and evenings on the lanai near the water to dining indoors and/or at a restaurant. We did a couple of night snorkels, too. You'll need a light. There are a lot of geckos inside and out, which we didn't mind. House was not spotlessly clean (kitchen & baths OK, but lot of dead bugs around the window screens) and is dated and somewhat rundown. I do not recommend this place for children mainly because the swimming & snorkeling are at your doorstep and lava rocks in the pond are very sharp. To earn 5 stars they need wifi/cell coverage & more comfortable patio chairs. There was only 1 lounge.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. We do not have anywhere in the advertising that there is a kayak or dishwasher (but there are many water toys provided). We do put in the rental agreement that if you kayak (bring your own or rent one), that you must wear life jackets. Mahalo! - The Management

We enjoyed staying at this property and the little house that reminded me of a summer cabin. The location is what makes this place so attractive. We enjoyed seeing the honu(sea turtles) daily and loved snorkelling from the backyard! The house is located in a nice quiet neighbourhood and we enjoyed getting out walking on the network of roads. It was hard to leave. We would definitely stay again and recommend to friends.

I don't know where one could find a more pristine ocean setting, with easy access to the water, gorgeous views, with such a perfect island feel, than this. This was a nostalgic trip down memory lane, as I had stayed at Kapoho Beach Community as a child, many years ago, and wanted to share it with my daughter and grandchildren. Jo's beach house is a comfortable, sweet, typical island cottage. I'll be back!

Located in a rural setting with lots of beautiful scenery on the easterly coast of the Pacific Ocean and Kapoho Bay. Only about 30 miles to the Volcano National Park and about 15 minutes to the lava flow viewing site (as Pele permits). A few blocks to Champagne Pond and a few miles to the public hot ponds. Just a mile to the Waiopae tidepools for great snorkeling. Close to Lava Tree Park.

Note: As of 10/2014, there is a lava flow slowly advancing towards Pahoa. This could be a once in a lifetime chance to witness a change in the Hawaii landscape, if the lava advances into the town. There is a possibility that the highway 130 could be covered by the lava. The County has already built several alternate contingency routes - good gravel roads for travel to and from the Puna area, if needed. The car rental companies will allow rental cars to use these roads.
