Located in a quiet, 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. The lagoon is privately owned, about 300' long and average 6' deep. Our Tilapia love this warm water. The bay across the road is sometimes called 'Champagne Pond'. It has many colorful fish and sometimes sea turtles.
Our cottage is surrounded by a flower garden.

About Ilse Oles, Owner E-mail preferred!
My husband and I built our house on the lagoon in 1985. We later acquired the cottage to use as a guesthouse and vacation rental. We spend part of the year at Kapoho. We also live in Issaquah, Washington State, and at our Highland CattleRranch on Lopez Island, WA. Who said that 'retirement is for resting?'
Why Ilse Oles, Owner E-mail preferred! chose Kapoho
This property has by far the finest privately owned warm lagoon. It belongs to three houses. Our own home is at one end, our rental cottage is in the center with steps into the water. The cottage at the other end is owned by a doctor and his wife who live in New York. They and their friends come from time to time.
What makes this cottage unique
Kapoho is the place where people who live in rainy Hilo have their weekend homes. The weather is great -- rain mostly at night to feed the flowers. Even a heavier rain is always warm. If you are caught in the rain walking, you are usually dry by the time you get back home. When it REALLY rains, we love to hear it drumming on the roof while we read our books or do needlework on the lanai.
