Kapoho House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Paradise awaits you at this brand new, charming home that sleeps five comfortably. The Master bedroom has a king size bed and a private bathroom, the second bedroom has a queen size bed and access to a shared bathroom, and the small den has a full size sleeper sofa if needed. All rooms have access to the wrap-around lanai that features ceiling fans, hammocks, dining furniture, lounge chairs and a tiki bar. For your grilling pleasure, there is a full sized gas grill on the lanai.

The house has an open feel, with ceiling fans throughout. It has a modern, fully equipped kitchen, featuring stainless steel appliances, a long center island that can accommodate up to six at the breakfast bar in addition to the dining area.

The living room has a 32” flat screen TV, DVD player, satellite tv, and a nice collection of DVD movies.

Forgot to bring your mask and snorkel? No worries! We have some you can use, because a short walk from the house is the best snorkeling on the Big Island - the Wai ’Opae Tide Pools. The offshore reef protects the tide pools from the sometimes-harsh southeastern shores of Hawaii. As you explore the maze of pools, you will find corals, schools of juvenile fish, moray eels, sea urchins, sea turtles, etc… It is like being in an aquarium! When you come home from the tide pools, there is an outside shower you can use to rinse off.

If you are looking for a romantic getaway, or a family looking to spend quality time together, our home offers something for everyone in paradise.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing like morning coffee on your back lanai. The yard and views are beautiful and the breezes kept us comfortable. We spent time at the tidepools and they are not to be missed. We had so much we wanted to do and see that we weren't there as much as we would have liked. Next time we will no doubt hang out more.

Thank you so much for your attention to detail and providing us with such a wonderful place to enjoy our vacation.

Beautiful home - had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was great. House was clean and well stocked with towels and linens. The open layout allowed for a great breeze to cool the house down to a very comfortable temperature. View from the lanai was fantastic. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook some great meals. The grill was clean and ready to use. Huge assortment of snorkling equipment was great. We loved the use of the Coleman cooler! We loaded it up everyday with drinks and snacks for the trunk of the car as we explored the island. Kept ice frozen all day. We really missed this nice extra when we ventured to Oahu the next week. Property was very centrally located for the areas of the island we wanted to visit and away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas, which is exactly what we were looking for. Very quiet neighborhood, outside of the frogs at night, but the floor fans could be used to drown the sound out if it became bothersome. We could be at Volcano National Park or Hilo in about 45 minutes. Our longest drive was to Waipio Valley. Very beautiful drive and well worth the time. Our kids loved the tide pools. Perfect for first time snorklers to get their feet wet (no pun intended!) Lots of colorful fish. Highly recommend this property.

Fantastic piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Liza's home. Beautifully furnished, comfortable, and very well-kept. We particularly enjoyed great and spacious the back lanai with its two hammocks and the peaceful and lovely view. We also loved listening to the coqui frogs and surf at night and the songs of the birds in the morning.

Best of all, Liza is a great owner who provided clear, helpful, and prompt communications. We received the refund for our security deposit the day we checked out. We would definitely stay here again.

Simply perfect

  • 4 of 5

This house is better than you can imagine. Everything is there. Very confy. We felt like home. Close to Kapoho tide pools, champain pond and Kalapana. If you what to relax and enjoy the place this housr is more then perfect. If you want to visit around, it's about 30 to 45 minutes to get to Hilo and to take the the roads 11 or 19.

Plenty of fans and windows in the house, so with the windows open, you get fresh air ( we were unlucky because neibourgs was doing lots of noises late at night. )

But overall we will recommande this house without a doubt

Feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was so well kept and felt like we were at home. Plenty of gear in the house for snorkeling so don't worry about bringing any also, a wide array of water shoes in case you forgot yours. The house was stocked with everything you could need. The beds are super comfortable as well. We enjoyed listening to the frogs at night and seeing all the geckos. We would stay here again in a heartbeat when we come back!
