Overview

Kapoho House Rental Photos and Description

Princess Cottage in Kapoho Beach Lots is a great value for the location! Swim in or lounge by the Princess Pond on the property or walk a couple of blocks to famed Champagne Pond. Two bedrooms, one bath. Sleeps 4!

Princess Cottage, so named for the owner's grandaughter, is a comfortable two bedroom, one bath cottage in Kapoho Beach Lots neighborhood. The best features of the property are the large ocean tidal pond with a lounging patio and the lanai where you can hang out after a good swim with your favorite book and/or cocktail!.

Located a couple of blocks from Champagne Pond you can also take advantage of one of East Hawaii's best swimming spots. Protected by a reef, Champagne Pond is a calm body of water where Honu (green sea turtles) and tropical fish play. Snorkel in the thermally warmed waters or simply float on the surface enjoying the tropical surroundings.

Everything you need for a relaxing, economy vacation in Hawaii is provided in Princess Cottage. The cottage has a full kitchen with range, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and kitchenware. The full bathroom has a shower over the tub and linens are provided including beach towels! The main bedroom has a double bed and dresser. The second bedroom, Princess Emma's room, has a Queen size bed and a private entrance that comes off the outside lanai. The living room is comfortable with tropical furnishings and a small TV and DVD player. There is also a CD player for your Hawaiian music choices.

If cooking isn't your bag there are many great restaurants in Pahoa Village about a ten minute drive away. Hilo is another 30 minutes from Pahoa where you will find large grocery stores, movie theater and the Hilo International Airport. In the Kapoho area of Princess Cottage there are lots of fun and sun activities including boats that take you to see flowing lava, thermally heated Ahalanui Hot Ponds, Waiopae Marine Conservation Tide Pools with the BEST snorkeling in East Hawaii.

Reviewer Comments:

The house is basic and charming, suited to the locale, unlike big, newer, out-of-place looking houses. Separate bedroom off the deck makes for very comfortable arrangement if you have 2 couples. Too bad about the coqui frogs; take earplugs if you're a light sleeper (for the whole area).

Two weeks in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful, once in a lifetime experience. After talking with friends who had stayed here in the past, we decided to spend two weeks at the cottage in March 2104. The area and people truly became our home away from home. We found so much to do and see that we could've easily enjoyed another two weeks! The Princess Cottage is one of the best values in the entire area and provides the perfect relaxing environment for your stay. The owners are nearby and provide a wealth of information and suggestions for everything from what to do to where to eat and shop. The cottage itself is clean, comfortable and secure, easily handling the four adults we had during our stay. The location is away from all of the typically touristy things Hawaii has to offer, but close enough that a day excursion can take you almost anywhere on the island. The local towns and farmers markets provide a view of what it is really like to live on the Big Island. We typically ate one meal a day away from the cottage and found that local restaurant prices were reasonable, and the food was excellent at every place we tried. During the evenings we returned to the cottage and relaxed with drinks on the large comfortable lanai, enjoying the cool breezes. It was the perfect place to talk through the day's adventures and plan for the next. I highly recommend staying at the Princess Cottage for your next vacation on the Big Island.

Reviewer Comments:

The star responses do not reflect mine. This is fraudulent.

The house was clean; very little privacy. Not worth the price. I was accused of keeping a key and told I would be charged $200 for it, by email. I got an apology for your mistake. If I did not check my email, you would have ripped me off.

NEVER again will I rent from your co. Again! You are totally inadequate. We are coming back in Oct.......the whole family. You have a lot of nerve. You will never be recommended by my family, & we are locals. Disgrace to Puna.

Owner's Response: We believe the general tone of this mindset provides a wonderful indication of the overall attitude and mindset of the former guest - combative. We think that says it all.
