Overview

Puna District House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6); Kapoho Beach Lots; Gated Community; Warm Ponds

Snorkel and Swim and Enjoy Paradise at Kapoho Ponds Upstairs!

Kapoho Ponds “Upstairs” is located in the highly desirable, ever-sunny gated Kapoho Beach Lots subdivison. This vacation home has its own swimmable warm pond that 90 degrees YEAR ROUND! And if you want to snorkel with honu (sea turtle), the best place is only steps away – Champagne Pond. Champagne Pond is a protected cove that is open to the Big Blue Pacific, and you’ll be just steps from some of the most spectacular snorkeling found on the Big Island. Green sea turtles (honu) love this area because of its warm temperatures and so will you! From the house, you can hear the waves and smell the clear breeze blowing across the Pacific (cleanest air in the US). Yes, this is Paradise!

Just a five minute drive down the famous Red Road is the Ahalanui Warm Spring Park which is a geothermally heated swimming pond at the edge of the Pacific Ocean. Since Kapoho is located at the furthest most eastern edge of the Big Island, it enjoys drier weather and those comfortable ocean trade winds. Just a ten minute drive is the quaint and historical village of Pahoa with its original boardwalks, shopping, and fantastic dining! There’s Italian, Thai and even Tex-Mex!

Kapoho Ponds Upstairs can sleep up to 6. There are three spacious bedrooms and one and 1/2 bathrooms. The master bedroom has a Queen bed, the 2nd bedroom has a queen and the third bedroom has two twins. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need to fix up a traditional island meal. Other amenities to make your stay more comfortable are a washer/dryer, Flat screen Satellite TV, DVD player, telephone, and of course all linens and kitchenware included.

And, if you have a larger group and want everyone to stay in the same location, the downstairs unit of this house is Kapoho Ponds Downstairs. It will sleep a total of FOUR and is VRBO #405786.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

First time to the big island. Kapoho ponds was unlike anything I had experienced. Walked a few feet and swam in a 90 degree pond, crystal clear with fish and things to look at. Every morning and evening we were in the pond. Kids loved it as much if not more than the adults. Great snorkeling at champagne pond just a few houses away. Spectacular snorkeling at the Kapoho tide pools just a 5 minute drive. And then there's red road. Drive all the way down to the end of red road on Wednesdays for a great time. Small-ish house in gated community. We had three adults and two kids and there was plenty of room. The bed in the master needs a memory foam mattress, too bouncy for me, both my wife and I had a difficult time getting comfortable. But not so much that it ruined our experience. Just wake up and hit the warm pond to feel refreshed. There is no dishwasher, but that was no problem. They need to either replace the knives or get a better knife sharpener, and wood or plastic cutting board. Other than that, a fantastic place in a fantastic spot and I would come back again. GREAT Value.

Perfect Spot off the Beaten Path!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in the upstairs part of the house and had plenty of room. Nice big living room and kitchen area with a very modern feel. I thought it was decorated very well with plenty of taste and suited our needs perfectly. More than enough cooking utensils with pots and pans and appliances to make anything you want. The house was very clean and well kept along with the neighborhood and general area. Has a large wrap around porch to sit out and enjoy the beautiful weather. The ocean was just a short walk across the street and can be seen from the porch. There is a nice little pond literally on the side of the house that wraps through a few of the neighboring houses that we swam in (has concrete steps right next to the house to get in). We split our trip up into 3 nights at this place and 3 nights in a condo/resort on the Kona/Waikoloa side. At the end of the stay we all wished we had just stayed here the whole time. It was very convenient to see the all Volcanoes and the waterfalls, rain forests, warm springs down the road, and botanical gardens. I think the Kona side is more "trendy" right now for tourists, but this side of the island is the true Hawaii for me. Thanks Jeana.

Lovely home, lovely spot

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The home is very nicely remodeled and in a beautiful neighborhood with it's own pond. We liked feeding the fish! Also a short walk to Champagne Pond allowed for some great snorkeling. The snorkeling in the tidal pools down the road a few minutes (by car) was really amazing. I really would like to rate 4.5 stars as the good far outweighed the small details we found a problem. One, while the furnishings are lovely, they are not really very comfortable for relaxing in. The room is so large that a big comfy sectional would be a great modification. The other issue was tiny pots and pans. However, the ladies who were taking care of the downstairs property notified Jeanna and they delivered a new set the next day. But it was close to the end of the week so we did not even open the box. And it would be nice if one of the bedrooms had a king sized bed. However, Customer service was excellent, great restaurants were available in Pahoa and we got to see some friends who moved there four years ago. And, this is important, it is by far the cleanest vacation rental property I have ever stayed in so kudos for that. I absolutely recommend staying here if you are considering a visit to the east side of the big island and don't care for hotels or resorts... like us! Oh and great value for the price for sure!

Made Memories that will Last Forever

  • 5 of 5

From a Guest who visited right after we had a tropical storm that knocked out power to this area for weeks:

We had a wonderful time, no complaints of any kind and my family members were all so appreciative of everything that was done to keep us safe and happy--I can never thank you enough.

I wanted our visit to be perfect--we all agreed we would not have changed one thing--we had weird meals-- making coffee on the grill was quite an experience, and made you really appreciate your first cup in the morning--but that only added to the fun.

We sat outdoors in the evenings and watched the stars, ever mindful that we were seeing some of them for the first time, as our atmosphere is not so clear--we laughed and joked and made memories that will have to last us forever, because we will never be able to do that again. This was a truly once-in-a-lifetime (mine) event and I pray that I never forget one moment.

It was a joy and privilege to meet you, very thoughtful of you to check on us.

Aloha, in every sense of that beautiful word,

The M Family

Champagne Ponds

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this unit for four nights. We really enjoyed the area! The private pond was great. Our children enjoyed swimming in it. We also enjoyed snorkeling at Champagne Pond and the "Vacationland" area. This was some of the best snorkeling we have enjoyed in Hawaii, and we have snorkeled many places. Lava Tree State Park was also great as well as the very lush vegetation along the highways. The house was nice although the main bed was a bit too soft for our comfort. We thought it was a great value for the money. The location was relaxing and unique.
