PARADISE RETREAT FOR TWO WITH PRIVATE POND AND WATERFALL

Kapoho House Rental Photos and Description

Studio with queenbed and full bath sleeps 2

This unique paradise retreat for 2 is located in Vacationland on the Hilo side of the Big Island. Located only a few minutes’ walk to the Wai Opae tide pools, this romantic property features a private pond with its own 10 foot high waterfall. The average lot in Vacationland is a little over 8000sq ft. but this property is on 3 lots and backs up to 300 acres of undeveloped land offering a peaceful, quiet and private surroundings. Set in a secluded tropical garden setting you may pick apple bananas, mangoes, papaya and coconuts when in season.

This pristine and charming house has been decorated with vintage Hawaiian pieces that have been collected over many years. The house has a complete kitchen that was remodeled in 2011. There is a full bathroom upstairs and an outdoor shower downstairs. The studio opens on to a private lanai that was newly redecorated earlier this year. There is satellite TV and a phone for on island calls. This is a 2 story house but the downstairs is used for storage and is not connected with the upstairs.

This area has many beautiful warm ponds. Depending on the tides the water level will vary in all of these ponds including the pond on the property. There is a very large warm public pond at Ahalanui Park approximately 1 mile down the Red Road (HWY 137) that you can swim in at all tide levels.

GREAT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
This house is unique! Loved the floor plan, huge deck, SOOO comfortable bed, outdoor shower, private tidepool, etc.. Well decorated and nicely landscaped property with all the amenities of home. The tidepool just around the corner was the best one we visited during our 2 week stay on the island. Close to Pahoa Town where we enjoyed Ning's Thai food and Kaleo's Bar and Grill - amazing! Highly recommend this place! This is a private oasis on the island with banana, papaya and coconut trees and pineapple plants in the yard. The perfect place to spend part of our trip during our 10-year anniversary trip! ~Dave and Stacy (Arizona)

SIMPLY AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures don't do it justice! It is way better! The inside of the house is neat and tidy, with new decorations and nice furniture. The bed is super comfy! We enjoyed our meals out on the deck even when it was raining. It was just a 5 minute leisurely walk to the tidepools. The tide pools were so fun with lots of cool fish. We wish we stayed longer here. Not too far from Hilo- 45 mins or so. A nice launching spot and a bit of paradise indeed! We would LOVE to come back. I've already been recommending this place to my friends if they ever go to the big island!

BLISS...

  • 5 of 5
The hubby and I stayed here last May, 2013, and had an amazing time! We've stayed at other pond homes with our kids but this was a trip for just the two of us and the house and grounds couldn't have been more perfect! The house is so charming and nicely decorated, the pond is totally private, surrounded by greenery and has a high rock wall blocking it from the road and Mitzi, the property manger, was a gem! For a couple looking for a blissful home base for exploring the east side of the island, this is the perfect spot!

We can't say enough good things about this lovely place. Our month stay here was perfect. The house sits on such beautiful gounds and the private waterfall pond is a dream. Such beautiful landscaping! The house is so well appointed with eveything you could think of or need provided for you. The decoration is lovely and the bed was super comfortable! We loved sitting out on the deck eating our meals, looking out over our private paradise. Mitzy was wonderful - there when we needed to ask a question and so helpful. With only a short block to the best snorkeling in Hawaii, this place beats any place we ever stayed. We hightly recommended it!

WATERFALL COTTAGE IS A FANTASTIC GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I travel to Hawaii every year. We have stayed many places throughout the islands from high end resorts to charming beach condos. I can say, in all honesty, that The Waterfall Cottage is one of our favorites.

Nestled in a secluded subdivision in Kapoho, the cottage is within easy walking distance to the Waiopae Tide Pools. You must get up at least one morning and witness the sunrise over the pools. You are about halfway between Hilo and Volcano National Park, putting all the natural beauty of the Big Island's windward coast in easy reach. There is a grocery store and restaurants in Pahoa which is a scenic 15-minute drive from the cottage.

The cottage itself is tastefully decorated in Hawaiian retro and features a comfortable front deck - great for relaxing, reading, or enjoying a meal. The yard is very tropical and you really get the Hawaiian vibe. There is a nice TV and wifi internet to meet your need to stay in touch with civilization. At night, you are serenaded by Coqui frogs and the distant sound of the surf crashing the shore.

We did turn the waterfall on one night. Because high tide came after dark in January, we didn't get to enjoy it like you might in the summer.

We absolutely enjoyed our week and were sad to see it end. Gail (the owner) was a pleasure to work with and Mitzi (the neighbor and the property manager) was kind and helpful. We know where we are staying on our next visit to that part of the Big Island

A BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL PIECE OF PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage and its setting were far more than we expected. While we did the usual tourist things in the area and made a two-day trip around the island, we preferred to spend our time "at home" in the cottage. The snorkeling just two blocks from the house was fantastic and, of course, so convenient. This was our first trip to any of the Hawaiian Islands and I don't think we would stay anywhere else in the future.
