LIVE IN PARADISE WHEN YOU VISIT THE BIG ISLAND...KA LANI KAI!

Kapoho House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Ka Lani Kai means 'the Heavenly Sea' and it truly is a place that you will remember as sacred, peaceful, and unique. This beautiful island home is nestled among exotic palms and flowering plants and has its own pond (not used for swimming).

The house is one block from the Waiopae Tidepools Marine Conservation District, where you can enjoy some of the most spectacular snorkeling found on the Big Island. Green turtles love this area because of its warm temperatures. From the house, you can hear the waves and smell the clear breeze blowing across the Pacific (cleanest air in the US).

The home is light and airy and has a huge open deck with a built-in BBQ, where you can enjoy a tranquil evening as the sun sets, or sit and gaze at the multitude of stars at night, or enjoy a cup of Kona’s finest in the early morning sunshine.

The home was recently furnished with all new, quality rattan and teak furniture. There are two spacious bedrooms and one bathroom; one bedroom has a Queen bed and the other has two twin beds. There is also a very comfortable Double-sized futon in the Living room. Each room has silent ceiling fans and new windows and screens to enjoy the night breezes and sounds of the ocean. The kitchen is fully equipped with coffee maker, oven/stove, microwave, blender, and cooking utensils. A washer and dryer are provided for your use, as is the satellite TV, VCR/DVD player, telephone (local service only), and linens (including beach towels). We don’t allow smoking inside and we will consider small pets.

The home is located in the private residential community called Vacationland in Kapoho, 30 miles south of Hilo. Kapoho is the sunniest spot with the least amount of rain on the east side of the Big Island. The beautiful Ahalanui Hot Pond is only two miles away, and Volcanoes National Park is approximately 40 minutes away.

When You Book With Us, You'll Receive Our Personal Guide to East Hawaii - 22 SPECIAL THINGS TO SEE AND DO. Best Of All, 16 Of Them Are FREE! You'll also receive a full fold-out map of the Big Island and the 101 Things to Do Magazine.

We look forward to sharing this little bit of heaven with you soon.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Great place, thanks! Our boys, 3 and 11 loved the fish. Like all the attention to style in painting and woodwork. Kapoho Waiopae tidepools and adjoining cove are great, you'll see many beautiful fish. I swam with a huge turtle and an octopus! Hiking out to see the hot lava is spectacular.

MAHALO NUI!

  • 5 of 5
Mahalo Nui for making this sweet place in paradise available to us. We truly appreciated all the "extras" provided - and we gently broke in the new blender to make some sorbet with fruits from the farmers markets. We loved eating out on the lanai & watching the stars @ night - saw the biggest shooting star evah! Our first nightly visit to the "Hot Pond" down the road was too cold, but last night was PERFECT...just like we remembered from a few years back. Snorkeling the tidepools is still the high point of our stay/ Watching the tides makes a HUGE difference - fought the current of an incoming tide one afternoon ... and the tide won! ha! We DREAM about the fish from Pahoa Fish Market. Sometimes we get the Ono fish-n-chips and bring leftover back to make into fish salad sandwiches. Grilled BEAUTIFUL ahi steaks! Spent a day on the volcano and stuck around to see it glow... beautiful. Also hiked out on the lava from Kalapana and out to the viewing site... you can see the lava "dots" flowing down the volcano & as it gets darker, see the bursts of glow when the lava meets the sea. The viewing site is a 10min paved walk. Lots of great things to see and do on Mark and Ron's list...but just being HERE still makes everything else icing on the cake. Ooooh - great lunch at Cafe Pesto in Hilo. Don't miss Basically Books in Hilo Town, AHHHMAZING selection of Hawaiian books and maps. Again, Mahalo from our hearts. May all who stay here, "live" here. God bless, The Gilmores.

Loved it so much, we bought down the street!

  • 5 of 5
This is an AMAZING house at a rate that would make you crazy to pass it up -- so we didn't!!! Boy, were we surprised at how it exceeded our expectations. Everything you read above is accurate...and then some. The owners have it pretty well stocked for those who "eat in" while on vacation, which is a big plus. Most of all, the place is so clean - and there are lots of beautiful geckos to help keep the bug population down. Best of all, it's a short walk down the street to the BEST entry for the Wai Opae tidepools. We snorkeled almost every day -- this area is a natural wonder and the neighbors who live here year round do a great job of protecting it for future generations. The deck at Ka Lani Kai is huge and there are great lounge chairs if sunning is your priority. We ate every meal out on the deck. One night, we saw the biggest shooting star, EVER!! This is a great area for stargazing as most people don't have lots of lights on. You get the serenity of your own natural pond, that rises with the tide and it's full of fish that expect you to feed them with the food provided. If you need internet connection -- you're all hooked up! We don't watch TV on vacation, but we can say that the Hawaiian music channel is a great asset. We just slept in the master bed, but it was comfortable - great linens, gentle breezes and ceiling fans to keep the air moving -- PARADISE! This is our second time in "Vacationland," and once again, thanks to the owners and the property managers, it was like coming HOME. Mahalo Nui Loa for sharing your wonderland for a fantastic week! We tell everyone (including the guys bidding on our move) about Ka Lani Kai and the great people who share it with others.

Caveat emptor

  • 2 of 5
Although the overall description given on-line was accurate, the quality, detail, and cleanliness of the place left a lot to be desired. Lumpy foam pillows that need replacing, twin beds were squeaky, dirty cupboards (things had spilled from the counter and obviously had not been cleaned up), hundreds of ants in the shower head ( that was a unpleasant surprise!), storage in bathroom had hair left on shelves, had to wash wine glasses before using because they were so dirty.... I was expecting better....

Owner's Response: Aloha from the managers at Ka Lani Kai and Mahalo nui for taking the time to write your review. We take your comments very serious. I wish you had contacted me upon your arrival and I could have dispatched housekeeping immediately to rectify this situation. We certainly understand your complaints and concerns and would have been more than happy to do whatever we needed to make this right for you. Upon your check out, you called to indicate the problems. However, I would have appreciated a call from you at check in instead of check out. We apologize profusely that you were disappointed. If you find yourself on the Big Island again, we would love for you to contact us and we will make sure you are more than taken care of.

Aloha,

Mark and Ron with Hawaiian Paradise Vacation Rentals

Hands Down Best Snorkeling on Island

  • 5 of 5
Loved this place! The layout is very warm & homey and the amenities were great. Nice towels and linens made me feel at home. The kitchen is large enough for groups to gather round and talk story while preparing the meal of the hour. The deck is big and expansive as it wraps around from side to side....all the while you can enjoy the tilapia cruising the fish pond. Don't worry about the coqui frogs... after a bit of "Wow" factor & the amazement of the decibel level at which they sing....they will actually serenade you to sleep. Ceiling fans in each of the rooms helped keep the house cool when the humidity was at it's worse. I live only 40 some miles away from this place but will certainly be returning again. Now....the snorkeling....this place has the most "ALIVE" coral on the Big Island. You will see the most colorful arrangement of sea life in your short time under water. This is a must stay place and do not miss out on the snorkeling......way better than Kona side.....sorry Kona-Side peeps.

Letting Go

  • 5 of 5
We are just back a week now, the transition is interesting .... we did very much enjoy our stay at Ka Lani Kai. Loved the small pond at the house, the neighbor's dog Kai and the very sweet couple who clean and look after the house. They were very friendly, and helpful. The area was all that we hoped for and more ... the tide pools are wonderful, the black sand beach, hot pools, Issac Hale swimming, Kalani Retreat Center's activities, Pahoa's uniqueness, the end of the road lava walk .... all inspired a deep sense of relaxation, enjoyment and a letting go of constraints.
