About Dale

Our property was passed down by my parents who always dreamed of having an ocean front home where our family could gather and special memories would be created.

Several years ago, we decided to build a new, open plan home (completed in 2013) on the property and this is the result. It's been fun decorating our home with a few pieces of furniture that have been passed down from one generation to the next.

Enjoy our home and the tranquility of Kapoho!

Dale purchased this house in 1983

Why Dale chose Puna District

If you are looking for a quiet, oceanfront home to relax, this is it! Create your special memories by coming to our home and enjoying what the Big Island has to offer.

Our 10 day visit in January 2017 was our second visit to this property. The setting is of course beautiful and the house very well appointed and equipped. Snorkeling and other water devices have been added since our last visit and that was very helpful. The gazebo really adds a lot to this rental compared to others in the same neighborhood because it does rain often and the gazebo enables one to relax outdoors whatever the weather. I would recommend this house to anyone--there were only two of us occupying the house so we did not use much of the space--it would be great for families up to 6 persons as there are 3 spacious bedrooms.

A Little Slice of Heaven

We could not have been happier with our stay. Our host, Dale was accommodating, generous and responsive. The place is just as it is described. The house is clean and orderly and well equipped. Beds were comfortable and the place is nicely decorated. We snorkeled every day in the bay in front of the house and walked the neighborhood enjoying the flowers, birds and weather. In addition to the amazing snorkeling, our biggest adventure was heading down the road to Kalapana and mountain biking out on the lava fields at dawn to watch the lava pour into the sea. Experience of a lifetime! Kapoho is a quiet and more isolated community so it might not be for everyone, but if you are looking for natural beauty, this is the spot. Thank you Dale! We hope to be back many times.

Mesmerizing and wonderdul

This is such a picture perfect vacation location. Our family got so much enjoyment out of the nice, well-appointed home and the wonderful back yard. We were able to enjoy all the "local flavor" from here within easy driving distance and were amazed at the beauty and uniqueness of the area. And, the weather could not have been any nicer for our entire stay. It was not easy to come home to Kansas where we were greeted by sub zero temperatures. Thank you Dale for the help and assistance and for sharing your lovely property. We would definitely stay here again.

This was our second time staying here. My family loves it. My wife likes to relax & read out in the gazebo & go swimming. My kids (11 & 15), love it. Such a beautiful & natural setting. Warm natural sling water mixed with the clean ocean, filled with fishes & turtles. Staying in a gated area also feels safe & special. The landscaping is beautifully. Private & beautiful as you'd imagine Hawaii to be. Looking forward to Dec. 2017!

A splendid place to enjoy Hawaii

We had a great time, including biking to the lava flow. We loved being right on the water and the kids & grandkids liked the snorking right out their back door. The accommodations were perfect.
