Lava Rock Villa is the pride of Kapoho as it sits majestically on top of a prominent, elevated rock wall that overlooks the ocean. This unique home in the private, gated community of Kapoho Beach Lots offers guests quality, style, comfort, and ocean views, always with the attention to detail of a luxury property. Four bedrooms and five baths on three stories with a mix of stylized retro, contemporary, posh and eclectic Hawaiiana motif.

From the moment you walk through the front door onto the Travertine and marble floors until you have covered all 3400 square feet of living area and expansive covered lanais that overlook the blue Pacific Ocean, you will find pure quality in design and detail.

Walk to the famous Champagne Pond and swim with the sea turtles (don’t get too close -- they’re endangered). This area is known as sunny Kapoho and is a hidden gem, not just of the Big Island but of all Hawaii.

Simply NO comparison -- truly a dream come true!

Why Chris chose Kapoho

This property is elegantly designed and required a Herculean effort to build. Unlike any other house in America, constructed with a 8 meter tall curved Lava Rock wall, 1 meter thick, hand shaped and fitted with red and black lava. You enter by driving up an inclined ramp to you castle by the sea.Truly one of a kind. Must be seen to be appreciated

                                                                      Everything about the house is quite exceptional, from the Lei greeting, the decor, pool with window, and location near champagne ponds. We really liked the furnishing and the way each part of the house was decorated. Thanks to Melissa for explaining how everything in the house worked, and providing a lot of local knowledge. The owner goes all out to make the stay a special occasion. We arrived to fresh flowers all over the house, and a platter of fresh local fruit. There was also a gift for my granddaughter who was very excited about it. Nobody wanted leave! Don't miss snorkeling in the champagne ponds, which is a only 100 yards or so away. It is like swimming in a tropical fish aquarium.

                                                                      Beautiful home


                                                                      The home is beautiful and the owners are really sweet. You cannot beat the views. They are breathtaking! The refrigerator is stocked with breakfast and we were greeted with leis. Unfortunately, I can't rate this home as excellent for a few reasons. Several things that were advertised did not work- the hot tub, the ice maker and door water feature, the Internet on the office computer, the dry rotted pool furniture, some doors without screens or with screens coming off the track. The microwave worked on and off, and the dryer wasn't efficient. Yet the cost of the house is set as a premium luxury. We had a lot of family come with us. We had a total of three rental houses in the gated community. My daughter in law is from that district in Hawaii with family nearby. So when we got together, we had a large crowd. The property manager called the owner and told him that we had unauthorized people spending the night. The owner was very respectful when he called and believed me when I told him that we each had our own rental home. However, the property manager never asked me about it prior to calling the owner and at times she made us feel she was watching our every move. We were not having wild parties and everything was family oriented. We constantly cleaned the house and kept it neat. The house we had rented in Kona prior to coming to Kapoho was not as luxurious. But it was large, clean, half the cost, had air conditioning in each bedroom and no one ever hassled us or caused us stress. When we left both homes, we cleaned, washed bath and kitchen linens and stripped the sheets off the beds. I am obsessive compulsive about leaving any hotel or house where I stay extremely clean before I check out. I do want to conclude by repeating that the house and views were amazing and when everything is fixed will be 5 star quality. The owners recently purchased the home, so I am sure they will do a good job. The property manager needs to rethink her communication style and treat each guest as trusted & honored guests until they behave otherwise. It was difficult to relax.

                                                                      Luxury Surrounded by Beauty


                                                                      From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome and at home. Lava Rock Villa became our private paradise for one week. The fridge was graciously stocked with everything we needed for our first morning -- coffee, eggs, bread, juice, as well as an overflowing fruit basket complete with a personalized, hand-etched message of "ohana."

                                                                      My fiancé and I spent our first week as an engaged couple at Lava Rock Villa. Upon hearing of our engagement, our hosts graciously rushed us a beautifully and thoughtfully made gift package to congratulate us and celebrate our union.

                                                                      The pool and hot tub were well maintained and became our main focus for the duration of our stay. "Sunny Kapoho's" unique weather was invigorating. Each day delivered its share of rain, but although intense, it was short-lived and was quickly replaced by beautiful sunshine. Don't let your iPhone's simplified weather forecast fool you! Even if it shows the area as rainy, the rain is probably only there for a short time.

                                                                      Nearby markets and the helicopter tours departing from Hilo helped us fulfil our tourist duties, but truth be told, we were happiest back at the villa, lounging and enjoying the view.

                                                                      A visit to the Kapoho tide pools capped off our spectacular trip. It is something everyone should experience at least once in their life. We will definitely be returning and look forward to another -- hopefully longer -- stay in the Lava Rock Villa.

                                                                      Fantastic and relaxing

                                                                      Kristi W.

                                                                      This off the beaten path house is the perfect place to unwind and get away from it all. It is isolated and quiet and completely relaxing. There were 5 of us and we never once felt crowded. It has all the amenities you could want to stay in touch while also getting away. You will have a bit of a drive to other activities but it's worth. The extra time at then end of the day when you were away from it all. We will be back.
