Awesome! We are visiting from California and Kapoho vacation is one of our favorite place definitely on our list.
Thank you for keeping your place clean and tidy. My Children and family here from the Big Island enjoyed their swimming & snorkeling and oh yah! Thank you for having Wifi, children now a days need it...
Much Mahalo & Aloha until we meet again,
The geothermal pools were really fun to explore and we had a great time here. However, I would recommend you look for a different house. The house is not very welcoming and pretty run down. There are lots of signs up about what not to do and what to fear (burglaries in the area and moray eels in the ponds). By all means, visit these ponds for an afternoon (they are very cool) but find somewhere either deeper in the rain forest if that is what you are after, or with a better view and access to the ocean if that is what you're after. Aloha
Kapoho Paradise is a lovely place! The house is comfortable & relaxing & well stocked. We had fantastic weather with cool ocean breezes
early morning rains & sunny days. The ponds are magical. They are like swimming in a large aquarium & the water is so clear during low tide.
It was nice to be so close to champagne pond too.
The temperature of the water is soothing & refreshing. It was nice having the gate to keep the kids out of the ponds too. They would have been happy
to stay in the water for 12 hours straight. Thank you for sharing this beautiful gem with us.
Stayed here with my wife and 4 children. They didn't want to leave and we would come back again. They loved the pond in the back yard and the Champagne pond and had a blast snorkeling. The pond in the backyard was better than the Champagne pond in our opinion. The kitchen had what we needed and there were some snorkeling toys available for use. We never used the downstairs rooms or pool table.
Generally a quiet location although we did hear the neighbors occasionally but it still felt secluded and private. Very different feeling than Honolulu which is exactly what we were looking for. You can hear the waves and birds constantly so it was never perfectly quiet (I thought it was nice to hear).
The drive to the nearest grocery store is a bit of a hike, but it wasn't really out of our way since we passed in front of it whenever we went to Volcano National Park, the Punaluu black sand beach, and waterfalls. The Big Island had just about everything we wanted to do - I'd recommend this location unless you want the party / beach scene of Waikiki. Loved the house and location. Sonia was a gracious hostess / manager.
Cannot beat this location to be secure, close to the ocean, to have private access to the snorkelling ponds, and to be located in an area at the south east tip of the Big Island that gives you access to north and west destinations. Clean and modestly appointed. Snorkel and swimming gear provided. Close to town with several restaurants. Would return at any time. Thank you for the hospitality and attention.
This house is so amazing... Our family (2 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 children) had a wonderful time. I can't say enough about Sophia, who took care of us from the first reservation request, until we arrived and she knew we were all set in the house. All of us enjoyed swimming in the beautiful ponds and we ventured out to the ocean.
The only concern (it was a minor concern) was the fact that there was no AC and we were there on hottest few days of the year. There were plenty of fans and the ocean breeze was wonderful. Thank you so much Sophia... If we are lucky enough to return to the area, we would surely come back to this house!!
You could not ask for a better location. We had an adventure filled 3 days on the Big Island. The Kapoho & the waiopae tide pools were by far our favorite part. The Kapoho Paradise Oceanfront Home sits on your own personal pond with great snorkeling and just minutes away from champaign pond, kapoho and waiopae tide pools. We woke up every morning around 6am and started our day snorkeling by 7am. We would discover all sorts of amazing creatures and fun all before 9am! The house was spacious, clean and extremely functional. Although we did not spend a lot of time at the house the tide pools and the comforts of the home were key. Sophia kept in close contact with us before and while we were at the house and made sure we had an easy entry and exit at the house. We booked the house last minute and Sophia was on top of every detailed which made the entire process easy and organized. Thanks for the great adventure!!
