It was WONDERFUL! This was the first vacation ever that we came home rested. Once we got our groceries and settled in, we didn't leave again until we needed more groceries! The ocean, tide pools, sunrises, swimming with the turtles and whale watching were magical. After two weeks, we were still not ready to leave! Thanks for sharing your fabulous home with us!

"Paradise Found"

We spent 7 nights in this beautiful rental enjoying the home and the amazing grounds. We've stayed in Kapoho before but this was by far the best rental we've found and we look forward to returning to the property or possible one of the adjacent homes.

The great: Oceanfront with ladders directly into Kapoho Bay. Enjoy swimming in the ocean and snorkeling with the sea turtles that visited each day right around lunch time. Your own private volcanically heated tidal pond with crystal clear water, easy entry/exit points, and lots of tropical fish. Finally you're less than 50 yards from a semi-private entrance to the famous champagne Pond for swimming, snorkeling, and whatnot. See pics for more of any idea of the grounds.

As to the home, we only rented the top half since there were just the two of us. The queen bed was very comfortable. The cross ventilation of the home really helped it cool down in the evening. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could want and there was a large gas grill outside (but we never used it). Views are spectacular from every room and every patio area.

Wildlife: tons of turtles and fish to enjoy. The birds sing all night, so super light sleepers might have issues (we loved it though). crabs on the sea walls. Lots of bugs...big ones. It just goes with the location. Surprisingly mosquitos weren't a problem.

We will definitely stay here again. That said, the property was pricy by Kapoho standards and there are a few things that would make the property five stars. These include higher quality sheets/bedding; a hand held shower head (sand gets stuck places), a comfortable sofa in the living room for snuggling.

Finally the property management was a pleasure to deal with. Very helpful. Without a doubt this house is all about location and access to the water. In addition, you're only 5 minutes from the Waiopae Tide pools, 15 minutes for Pahoa, 25 minutes from Hilo, and 40 minutes for Volcano!

If you are only visiting Kapoho for a few days...try to go during the week. The tide pools and champagne pond get busy on the weekends when local families enjoy them, but you'll have them almost all to yourself Monday-Thursday.

"Pictures don't do it justice! Peace and Tranquility with the mos"

The location is probably one of the best in Hawaii...oceanside with a perfect ocean view, private thermal pool with hundreds(maybe thousands) of tropical fish, adjacent to Champagne pond, which is one of Hawaii's best thermal ponds, and in a gated community. Sofia was awesome and always responded promptly. Check In was simple and the instructions were perfect.
This was our fourth time to the Big Island (third time staying in the Puna District) and this was our favourite place to stay. Snorkeling in the ponds and Champagne pond was amazing and relaxing. The location was close enough to Pahoa to be convient, but far enough for a sense of seclusion. The internet worked perfect. There was so much to do, we never turned on the TV.
We hope to be back in the near future!!!

"Plenty of R&R; for our week away..."

We have stayed at 3 other properties at this location and all were great, this one did not disappoint us.
This home was a little older than the others but clean and well-kept.

Our first visit in 2009 made us realize that we had to return. We remembered Sophia and she welcomed us our first night making sure we found our way.
Our daughter invited her dear personal assistant to join us.
We were all having fun time. Belle's memory of the beautiful lagoons kept her focused. We all turn into mermaids by the end of our trip!
Our Tropical experience is peaceful! Truly relaxing. We love the town of Pahoa.
