Beautiful Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 were looking for a quiet home near the ocean on the big island that would be within driving distance of the major tourist sites (volcano, etc). Kapoho Oceanfront Home proved to be the ideal property. The home easily slept our family and was in a perfect location. The view was spectacular, and the snorkeling was perfect. The caretaker was attentive and very nice. It was a bit warm inside (in July), so a few fans would have helped, but overall, our stay was spectacular.

Bayfront Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet get away place and this fit the bill perfectly. The view out of the front room is spectacular, almost 180 degrees of Kapoho Bay. We slipped right into the bay to swim and snorkel, and loved seeing turtles off the see wall regularly. A short drive to the Kapoho tide pools opens up an underwater wonderland, well worth the short drive and walk in. Audrey's presence was nice, with input as needed for local happenings. There are several good places to eat in Pahoa, a 10 - 15 minute drive away - Kaleo was our favorite, fresh fish served in so many tasty ways. Plan ahead for grocery shopping, the nearest store is about 15 minutes away. This is definitely the quiet side of Hawaii, if you want a resort atmosphere, this is not the place to go. If you want a peaceful and beautiful touch of paradise, this is the place. The home and furnishings are older, but comfortable.

Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a relaxing and quiet place to vacation, this is the perfect place! Lots of room inside and outside, right on the ocean, and within swimming or walking distance to Champagne Pond or other geothermically heated ponds. Auntie Audrey is great - lots of good fishing and touring advice! Closest store is 15 minutes away, so plan shopping trips carefully. We will definitely be back!

Great place

  • 4 of 5

We really liked the location. No hotels, no high rises, no condos, just homes. A lot of the homes had wonderful natural ponds. Loved the Champagne Pond and the nearby tidepools that were the marine reserve. Great, safe snorkeling. Farmer's Market in Hilo was excellent, enjoyed the volcano. Really liked the countryside, not desert like Kona area. Audrey the caretaker was very helpful but never intrusive. Home was clean and well-supplied. Can't beat being right on the ocean. We didn't snorkel much out front because the ocean was too rough and visibility not good. Overall, we really liked it and would go back again.

Treat for the eyeballs........

  • 4 of 5

The location could not have been better. It has a million dollar view and being able to step out the door and into the ocean was fantastic. It is what I imagine what the top 1%'ers get to experience. The house itself was older but functional.

Be aware.. the home has no A/C and Hawaii was more humid than I can ever remember, so sleeping was difficult. The caretaker, Audrey was very welcoming.
