Guestbook comments from the owner

We booked this beautiful, spacious five-bedroom house anticipating that family and friends would join us. As it turned out, my husband and I were the only two that could make the trip. However, it still worked for us because the nightly base rate for a house this size in Hawaii is reasonable. In the end the extra room paid off because we had several friends who live in Hawaii visit for the day and two of them spent the night. We only had to pay a small extra fee for them to stay.

This house is situated in a quiet neighborhood. From our third-story master bedroom we could look over palm trees and a lava field to see the ocean. We snorkeled in the delightfully warm Champagne Pond everyday and ended our day with a champagne toast to the joy of it all.

Although it was very nice just to stroll around the peaceful neighborhood, we could also hike the roads cut into the lava fields out to the shore. The Kapoho Tidepools and Wai'opae Ponds are a one and a half mile drive or walk away with a variety of fish and coral to see.

Pahoa, a quaint little town with a personality, is only a 15-20 minute drive away through mini-environments of lava, grasses, papaya groves and a vine-draped forest. There are several good restaurants from which to choose.

We were hesitant to stay on the "wet" Hilo side of the big island so booked our second week on the Kona side. It worked out well for us. We enjoyed the contrast of flora and fauna, weather patterns, local flavor and pace of life.

Our contact person, Sophia, was always friendly, helpful and informative. So easy to work with. I would recommend her to anyone looking for accommodations in this area. Thanks, Sophia!

Beautiful Home!

  • 4 of 5

The Kapoho Bay View House is beautiful. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for all of our group. Very clean house and grounds. Beds were a little stiff. There were fans in each room which was so nice! The house is clean and mostly well stocked. The kitchen was great other than it had absolutely no baking items (measuring spoons, cups or dishes). The front porch was delightful with a beautiful view. Gated community was great with easy access to pond. Beaches are very rocky so a little hard to navigate. I am from Hawaii so I knew what to expect. This location is definitely a drive from be prepared to drive to anything. Be mindful to grab what you need when out and about. Sophia checked in constantly. Sad we didn't get to meet her. Great overall stay.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Clean house. Nice and big for our family of 7. Helpful information & tidbits posted around the house. The house manager was helpful via phone. It was nice to experience this side of the island after being in Kailua-Kona for several days. Definitely a different feel - we were so glad we decided to venture to the other side of the island.

Amazing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This home has 5 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms, which was perfect for our group. Although not on the ocean it still has a beautiful view of the ocean.

Down side: If you are planning to visit Hilo it is a 45 minute drive. However, there are many attractions around the area. Example: Hot springs, volcano, Pahoa, end of the road, and painted church.

Up side: Great area to be away from the hustle and busy part of Kona and other vacationers.

Conclusion: We will definitely stay there again. Bonus: You are in a private gated community.
