COTTAGE ON A WARM LAGOON IN A GATED COMMUNITY

Kapoho Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Located in a quiet, ocean-front, gated community with easy accessibility to Kapoho Bay and the ocean. For your swimming and snorkeling pleasure, this two-bedroom cottage is situated on a crystal-clear, geo-thermally heated tidal lagoon. The water is a mix of heated, fresh spring water and sea water, and the temp is usually a wonderfully comfortable 90 degrees.

There's a private-line phone, satellite TV and a VCR, a computer hookup,a charcoal barbecue, and a spacious lanai.

The Lagoon Cottage is a small house (about 750 sq. ft.), but has two bedrooms, one bath,a nice kitchen and a small-but-comfortable living room. The Main Attraction at this vacation home is the indescribably beautiful and always inviting, crystal-clear lagoon! Just a few steps across the road will take you to the famous CHAMPAGNE POND.

This is a strictly non-smoking vacation home!

A guide-map at the house will direct you to all the nearby places of interest.

DELIGHTFUL STAY OFF THE BEATEN PATH

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed here over Christmas, and could not think of a better place. Loved the cool air and chorus of frogs at night, and the cottage itself was nice and had plenty of room for my wife and I and our two sons. The lagoon is great fun- we had a lot scheduled, so only spent one day around the house, and spent much of it in the lagoon.
If you stay here, be sure to fly into Hilo- we flew into Kona, and had activities scheduled in that area the next day, so spent more time driving than we would have liked, but we did get to see much of the island. Apparently, there is a good reason they call this the Big Island!
Thank you, Ilse, for opening your home to us, and the Christmas card was a nice touch and very much appreciated!

AIRLINE FOLKS WITH LOTS OF TRAVEL UNDER OUR BELTS

  • 5 of 5
One of our favorite destinations! We loved our time at Kapoho Lagoon Cottage. The heated pool was so much fun to swim and snorkel in and if that wasn't enough, Champagne pond was literally across the street, less than one minute to be in the water snorkeling with the turtles and beautiful tropical fish. We ate all of our meals outside on the lanai and never ceased to be amazed at the number and brightness of the stars at night. We had short tropical "showers" a few times each day but never enough to deter our activities. This is a great location for exploring the northeast, east, southeast, and southern areas of the Big Island with lots of diversity from beautiful hidden valleys with waterfalls to volcanoes and tide pools loaded with wildlife. If you are looking for city nightlife this place is not for you. Why pay $150+/per night for a hotel when you can have this wonderful "home" for less with all these fun activities? We would recommend this property to anyone who loves the great outdoors.

We were also provided information on shopping, dining, and local activities that was very helpful in planning our day to day activities.

If we return to this area we will stay here again and will highly recommend this property to anyone we come in contact with. The owners were very accommodating, helpful, and gracious.

AWESOME LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
Where else in the world can you have your own snorkel ready geothermal brackish water tide pool at your front door, and stay on land that's probably younger than you are? The location alone is worth the cost.

Other than the Coqui frogs (music to the ears of some), quiet and peaceful. The cleanest air and clearest sky you''ll see anywhere in HI at sea level. Champagne Pond is literally across the street. An added bonus to this part of The Big is plenty of 4WD opportunity.

As for the rental, amenities are as advertised (photos on VRBO, description, etc), and everything worked (except TV Sat coverage was intermittent). Location is great for exploring Puna and Kau, and about 30 minutes from Volcano NP. About 40 minutes to Hilo.

If you are the type of person who wants to be kama'aina, runs from resorts, cruises, hotels, or any type of organized "tourist" activity, and visits the HI every chance you get, this would be a good choice if you want to stay in the Puna District.

It rained every day I was there (well, it is the wet side of the island after all), and except for not being able to find locals willing to take me along on a Boar hunt, it was perfect!
