Audrey, can't thank you enough for an amazing stay. We enjoyed your hospitality and aloha!
I rented this home for 10 days for myself and my children (ages 13-29). My grandson was also there. He just turned 1. And my older brother. This was his first vacation and a beautiful one for him. We loved the flexibility everyone had to either relax inside, fish, snorkel, sun bathe or walk around to nearby areas. We did have to cross to the west side of the island for entertainment. It was a 2 hour drive to go to Kona for the luau and to snorkel at Capatain Cook's cove. Our hostess was on top of things. We stayed off our electronics almost the entire time--which speaks strongly of how satisfied everyone was. I have never felt so relaxed. Thank you!! Our only disappointment was the fact that there were no sandy beaches. Lava rock everywhere. The Rainbow waterfall and tropical botanical gardens were beautiful and close by.
We stayed here with 2 other couples for a week around our friends wedding. I had never been on the big island, and thought of that side as "rainy" but we had lovely weather the whole time. The house fits 3 couples well, could have had room for children. I would not stay to have more then 8 unless people are ok sleeping on futons in the living room. The house is up on the second level above another suite (that you could no hear), and the other house in front that is rented was below and we didn't see the people really (they had their own swimming spot). The house was clean and had everything that was listed. I would stay that this is not a modern luxury house or a resort. It is a beachy older house. We loved the outdoor cooking area and table, and spend a lot of time on the deck. We had done a big shop at costco in kona before we drove over and cooked more of our meals in the house and it could have used a few more kitchen items, better knives. We set up at the bar and one of our friends made us drinks (good friend to bring on a trip!). The view of the bay, and the ocean swim spot were great. We spent tons of times swimming and snorkling right outfront. There is a huge turtle that feeds in the area that was fun to watch! the property is lined with big palm tress and you really feel at rest in the spot. Tip! the nearest town is 20 min away so pack food etc. Would rent again forsure great for groups. Other friends were at rentals within the gated community and said we got one of the best spots!
This is a prime location, with fantastic sunrise views, access to good snorkeling (the water is warm!), a quiet neighborhood, lots of space, help close at hand, well-equiped kitchen, large deck, BBQ (it's big), and a yard big enough for a large wedding. The place is somewhat dated but is well-maintained and clean. It's off the beaten track - junk food and restaurants are a good ten minutes away - but Pahoa seemed close enough. Check out the Farmer's Market for good local and international cuisine.
My family and I (8 of us - 4 adults, 1 senior and 3 children) stayed at the villa March 11-18 2012 and loved our time there. The location is fantastic for our group, as we are avid snorkelers. Right between Champagne Pond and Wai'opae preserve. Good jumping off point for visiting Volcano National Park, Mauna Kea Observatory, Hilo and driving up the coast to Waipio Valley, Akaka Falls and much more. Being on the Hilo side which is notorious for rain, we were fine here. It would rain through the night and be gone by morning. Besides, we love the green, more lush side of the islands over the drier, more desert like the leeward sides.
The Villa is situated on a lovely piece of well maintained property. Although its in a gated community with houses all around, you still feel secluded in the home and are not bothered by other guests renting the homes around you. It was kitted out well, and we didn't seem to miss anything (only small complaint would be the beds are rather hard but that is a personal preference). The resident caretaker Audrey was fantastic! She was a great source of information and even brought us a couple of fish a neighbour caught and cleaned for our lunch one day.
The villa is definitely a home away from home, and I whole-heartedly recommend this place to anyone and everyone!
This was the perfect house for our group (6 adults, 2 kids). The house is clean, spacious, and offers breathtaking views. We enjoyed all of our meals on the huge lanai, even during the beautiful storms, which were a welcome break from the heat. We've come to the big island twice, and have spent time on both sides each trip, completely different experiences and highly recommended! We saw turtles from the property almost every time we walked down to the sea wall. The on-site caretaker (Audrey) was very sweet, welcoming, and helpful. If we are lucky enough to return to this island we will definitely stay here again. Thanks so much!!
Wonderful Thanksgiving in Kapoho. We all enjoyed
the break from Maui's paradise to majestic Kapoho.
Beautiful house with ocean view, large yard for the
kids to play, and of course the simmering ponds and
turtles. Truly Hawaii's last uncelebrated secret.
