Aloha, and welcome to my world.
I have had the privilege of living in Hawaii for over 26 years. I lived in Maui for much of that time but always wanted to call the Big Island home. For the past six years I have made that dream come true.
Kapoho has always had my heart. The waters here nourish me deeply.
Being a steward of such a special place has given me great blessing.
The green sea turtle in the picture is named Albert. I call him Honu (which means turtle in Hawaiian).
He lives in his own warm pond on the property where I live (next door to the Bali House). He is over 30 years old and has lived here most of his life.
I feed him lettuce, sea weed, raw fish, dog food and even some turtle food. I also rub his shell and sing to him. Honu has been an amazing teacher to me. I love taking care of him and he loves me back. As you see we are good friends!

Kapoho is an amazingly unique place on our planet. We sit on an active volcano which produces warm mineral waters to heal body, mind and spirit.
The Bali House offers you elegance, refinement and peace. Designed with harmony and balance in mind. We invite you to experience the best of Kapoho.
Wow, the house is even more beautiful than the photos. Our stay was fantastic! You thought of everything! The warm pond was truly amazing. Waking up in the morning going for a sunrise dip was beyond our imagination. Thanks, we will be back next year for our renewal.
A lovely home, great location, very close to the ocean and a great view and outdoor deck area.
There is one home (with a big roof) in between the house and ocean, but still a beautiful setting with gorgeous grounds all around. The pond is magical and the house very spacious and tasteful.
The kitchen has an amazing view and nice appliances but I could have used a few more baking items (then again I like to prepare lots of food on vacation...).
Overall a great experience that we hope to repeat if the house is still available next year.
We stayed here with our 2 teen daughters for 3 nights this past December and were very impressed with the luxury of our lodging and the serenity of the location. This place has it all when it comes to the amenities including a gourmet kitchen that with the windows open give you a majestic view of the ocean. Carol was wonderful to work with from our initial contact until our final departure. She also gave us numerous tips on things to do including suggesting a beautiful scenic drive to Kalapaana. We only were disappointed with us only having 3 nights here as we didn't get to relax much on the beautiful outdoor living space, however, we did get to swim often in the geothermal pond in our very own backyard. The kids loved the snorkeling in the pond. Our next trip, we will make it a point to allocate 5-7 days minimum in this beautiful home away from it all.
This house was awesome. The website was great but it truly doesn't do its uniqueness justice! We were here with our 3 children and they loved the amenities it had to offer. We had some friends that were staying in a house a few streets over and it was very convenient. My husband and I want to come back for a romantic vacation here as well!!
This place was absolutely fabulous!! You walk in and are instantly impressed with how beautiful and how well kept the house and property is! We had a great time, hiked out to the active lava flow at sunset while in Hilo and also hiked and saw several waterfalls around the region. The house was great for families including a ping pong table downstairs (outdoors but covered). We also enjoyed watching the blue heron come every day to fish in the geothermal pond in the back yard - just super cool. There are beaches around but not super close, however, the view of the water is much closer than the pictures show. From the lanai you can hear the waves and almost throw a rock to the ocean. The ocean is certainly the entire view from the elevated lanai and really close! Would definitely recommend 1000x over staying in a hotel!!! Might not recommend for small small children, ie toddlers, because of the stairs and the pond and the house is very very nice. If you worry about your kids being a demolition derby, probably not a good idea but for kids 4-5+ would be fine if you are exploring the area...
My Mother, Auntie and I all came to experience Merrie Monarch on the Big Island. Lodging was hard to come by in town and I AM SO GLAD! This was an amazing experience and I would not have traded convienence in town for the incredible time we had on this property. I have NEVER been so relaxed as I found myself to be sitting on the lanai listening to the ocean and feeling the breezes wash over me. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and will be back. If you are seeking peaceful moments, this is the ticket. Thank you to our host for allowing us the chance to be in this special piece of paradise. Loved it! Much Aloha!
Words cannot convey the beauty and location of this home. I was stunned at the beautiful interior and wonderful property this house was located on..it is truly paradise!. The pictures in the listing do not do justice to the beauty and comfort of this home..I have travelled many times to the Big Island and i have had several VRBO properties i have stayed in...and i will look no further..i am already making plans for next year at this house..Carol was a most gracious host and was a wonderful person to meet , and the whole process was painless and smooth. The Pond is a great place to relax and take a morning or evening dip in the warm heated water...the tide pools are a 5 minute drive away for the best snorkeling around..and overall i would rate this house an 11 out of 10..Thank you Carol for the best vacation i have had in many,many years..kevin,chantee,joe,terril....see you next year!
