Overview

Kapoho House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Snorkel and Swim and Enjoy Paradise at Hale Ho'okomo!

Hale Ho’okomo which means in Hawaiian “to come on in” is just exactly what you are going to want to do when you arrive in this cute as can be Kapoho cottage. Located in the highly desirable, ever-sunny Kapoho, Hale Ho'okomo is set in a lush tropical and private setting. Pick papayas, bananas, and other tropical fruits right outside your door. Yes, this is Paradise! Enter through the double glass doors into the large living area and into your warm and welcoming vacation home. Live like the locals in this colorful, fun and funky Hawaiian style cottage that is just steps from some of the most spectacular snorkeling found on the Big Island. Green sea turtles (honu) love this area because of its warm temperatures and so will you! From the house, you can hear the waves and smell the clear breeze blowing across the Pacific (cleanest air in the US).

Just a five minute drive down the famous Red Road is the Ahalanui Warm Spring Park which is a geothermally heated swimming pond at the edge of the Pacific Ocean. Since Kapoho is located at the furthest most eastern edge of the Big Island, it enjoys drier weather and those comfortable ocean trade winds. Just a ten minute drive is the quaint and historical village of Pahoa with its original boardwalks, shopping, and fantastic dining! There’s Italian, Thai and even Tex-Mex!

Hale Ho’okomo can sleep up to 5. There are two spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom has a Queen bed and a twin and the 2nd bedroom has a queen. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need to fix up a traditional island meal. For your convenience and easy clean up, there is a dishwasher. Other amenities to make your stay more comfortable are a washer/dryer, Flat screen Satellite TV, DVD player, telephone (local service only), and of course all linens and kitchenware included.

Wow... what a treat!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was the real deal for a tropical vacation! Everything we needed for our stay was there. Including tide pools, just a few steps away (what else can you ask for?)! If you are looking for island excitement, this is not what you want. If you are looking to spend some time away from the busy hustle and bustle of your everyday busy lives, then this is where you want to be! You are in jungle, so bugs and gecko's are just part of being there... but, the gecko's eat the bugs, so there you go! I recommend this place for anyone wanting so spend some time on the Hilo side of the island. you can be anywhere in less than an hour, including Hilo and the Volcano! Loved it!

wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

It was a great stay at your wonderful house- we felt really at home.

We wished we could stay one more week- mainly on that wonderful veranda.

It was the most beatiful and comfortable accomodation we had in the 4 weeks, we stayed in Hawaii!

Maholo!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Florian! I find it hard to get off the lanai myself! I hope that you did get off a few times and walk over to the tidepools for some world class snorkeling. If not, then you must come back and visit again! Aloha, Gerard

Tidepools in Puna

  • 5 of 5

My family and I arrived to this clean bungalow with fresh flowers on the lanai. The keys were in the lockbox and the best advice was to always put them right back in the lockbox in case we were to get locked out. The first thing that happened was a friend closed the door without realizing it was locked but it didn't matter because the keys were right in the box. Most days we walked to the tide pools and snorkeled. So beautiful and the fish were amazing. The drive along the Red Road to Kaimu Black Beach is super cool. We visited quite a few farmer's markets and hit the super market and fish market almost daily to stock up on food. It was great to be able to eat in everyday. The drive to Kona on Saddle Road took 2 hours and was definitely worth the trip. The location of this house was great because we definitely felt like we were on the side of the island that was more tropical, quiet and unique. My most favorite spot was the front lanai. We sat there every morning and then as much as possible.

Owner's Response: Aloha Rita, We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you followed our advise on the lock box! We hope to see you and your family back again at our little corner of paradise some day. Aloha nui loa, Gerard and Carolyn

Best vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation home I've rented! Great amenities, super clean, amazing new landscaping, only steps to the tide pools and ocean. There were papayas and bananas to pick, wonderful kitchen, and lots of space. My favorite was sitting on the front lanai and listening to the ocean. Grab this rental if it's available! You won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Aloha Virginia, We are so happy that you enjoyed staying with us. Sitting on the Lanai listening to surf and watching the plants grow is my favorite pastime at Hale Ho'Okomo also (besides planting). I hope to see you again next time you are staying makai. Jerry and Carolyn

The green lava house

  • 5 of 5

This was like a little oasis, a wonderful place for a few days at the Kapoho tidal pools. My family really enjoyed our stay; our son chased and caught the geckos, we watched the mongoose rummage around the front garden, relished the outdoor shower after spending hours snorkelling. The house was clean and tidy (we loved the Bali / Indonesian theme), had everything we needed, the garden was beautiful and the front lanai was perfect for breakfast or afternoon tea.

If we ever return, we are headed straight back to Hale Ho'Okomo and we would recommend it to anyone interested in this part of Hawaii.

Amazing Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for ten days and all I can say is WOW! The cottage was perfect in every way. The pictures are accurate and the location was just as described. When we arrived soft Hawaiian music was playing and a fresh vase of Island flowers along with a snack were waiting for us. You are very close to a lot of awesome activities and we were not bothered by insects either. The tide pools are just steps away where you can do some amazing snorkeling or jump in your ride and in just a few minutes be at other amazing spots. This is a perfect distance from Hilo and would recommend staying here instead of right in town. Everything you need is pretty close by including a small grocery store. Sleeping was awesome because you leave the windows cranked open and the trade winds come in and just knock you right out. The owner has done a great job with this place and highly recommend. Management of the cottage is very professional and just a phone call away. No need to hesitate on this one! Thanks to everyone for making our getaway PERFECT!!
