Why the Owner Chose Kapoho: After renting many vacation homes we knew when we turned off the Red Road into Kapoho we had found a very special place.

Once inside we experienced the view of the ocean, heard the sound of the waves, felt the warmth of the light, colorful interior and knew we were home.

Aloha.....from the top of Green Mountain with a view of Kapoho and the beautiful blue Pacific!

We have always dreamed of owning a little bit of paradise. After 30 years of marriage our dream came true when we purchased our vacation home, Hale O’Nui Kea Kala , “House of Many Sea Colors” in Kapoho. We truly enjoy our time in paradise but are happy to share it with you when our busy schedule keeps us away. Mahalo...

STILL HERE. DO NOT WISH TO LEAVE!

  • 5 out of 5
We agree with the other reviews. Comfortable, well furnished, quiet and many fun adventures in the area.

A few minor notes: there is no outdoor gas grill as mentioned on the site (you need charcoal & lighter fluid) and we would have appreciated having cushions for the two outside lounge chairs.

Thank you for a wonderful time! We certainly would return again.

NOTHING BUT BEAUTIFUL, TROPICAL NATURE.

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of three teens truly enjoyed this colourful, well maintained, fully stocked home. The house and decor has that Hawaiian feel I was looking for both inside and outside. Sandra provided many beach and bath towels, extra linen etc...the kitchen was fully stocked...appreciated the use of spices. Washer and dryer. This rental has a fantastic view of the ocean. A small walk down the road to the tide pools. Bring sturdy flip flops and be careful b/c lava rocks can be sharp in some areas. Kids will enjoy snorkelling and seeing many marine life. Caution to be respectful of coral and marine life. Beautiful daily morning, noon and evening walks. The location is ideal to the volcano, black sand beaches, Hilo and further north to Umauna Falls for zip lining. I am so thankful I booked with Sandra/VRBO. Everything went as planned with payment, refund and our host was very gracious and helpful. I would definitely come back ... This is a gem of a find you will not be disappointed is you are particularly a nature lover and want a place to unwind. People on the east side live at a slower pace which I appreciated.

GREAT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 out of 5
We booked this lovely home for oursleves, son and daughter-in-law and 2 granchildren ages 3 and 5. The space accommodated us perfectly. The dining area is on a screened in porch overlooking the ocean. We wanted to have adventure rather that sit on a beach, and this is a great place to stay while exploring the interesting areas of Big Island. It is close to Volcanos National Park, 2 hot pools, and great snorkeling in front of the house in the tide pools. Our grandchildren were able to see tropical fish standing on the lava at the shore. We took several interesting hikes on lava in the area and in the Park. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. The home was clean and well equipped. The neighborhood was very quiet and private. We would be happy to stay here again if we ever are fortunate enough to come back to Big Island

PERFECT FOR PUNA AND POOLS.

  • 5 out of 5
For exploring the tide pools, this is THE place. The house was well stocked and very comfortable. There's a nice screened-in lanai and big deck.It's probably the nicest house in the neighborhood. We used the charcoal grill often. The small backyard has some beautiful landscaping. There's no a.c., but we didn't need it. All the windows and doors open up to catch the nice ocean breezes.The owner was easy to deal with. The town of Pahoa is @10minutes away if you want to see what the 1960's look like again.I really liked this place and the price makes for a great value.

WOULD STAY HERE AGAIN

  • 4 out of 5
We found the home to be very comfortable, nicely decorated and well located. It was basically everything it was described as being. The house was clean and well supplied, bed was comfortable (we only used the master bedroom), WiFi signal was good. We especially enjoyed the comfortable living room, screened porch (outdoor living and dining) and large deck.
The house is located in a quiet neighborhood just a short walk to the Wai Opae tide pools, where we did some good snorkeling. We enjoyed driving the Red Road and also the back road into Pahoa (about a 20-minute drive). Coming back in the evening we could hear the coqui frogs, which was really fun. We had dinner at Kaleo's, which had a nice atmosphere with live entertainment and good food ( we really liked the Mediterranean platter).

As others have said, you do need to buy everything you will need for your stay as there is nothing close by.

We felt this was one of the nicer rentals in the neighborhood. We would definitely rent this property again and hope to return.

AMAZING VACATION HOME - TRUELY BREATHTAKING

  • 5 out of 5
Coming to Hawaii for the first time we were unsure what to expect. Thank you for making it a magical trip. What a perfect place to stay! My family and I absolutely loved staying in "The house of many sea colours"! No one wanted to leave. We snorkeled every day in the tide pools or champagne ponds which are just up the road. Every time we drove the 'red road' we were astonished by the lush vegetation and scenery. The kids even saw a bunch of wild pigs. We zip-lined, took a helicopter tour to witness the devastation of the lava flowing into the ocean and just hung out on the beaches. The house had everything you could need while on vacation we especially loved the outdoor shower. Have fun trying to catch the geckos?
Thanks Sandra.

Kapoho is located at the furthest most eastern edge of the Big Island. It is noted for it's drier weather and cleanest air on the planet! Swimming and snorkeling is just outside the front door at the Wai ‘Opae tide pools. Take the very short drive to enjoy the once in lifetime experience either by boat or hiking to see where the Kilauea volcano is flowing into the Pacific ! Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park is located 45 minutes away. Shopping and dining can be found in Pahoa a short 8 miles and Hilo only a 30 mile drive through paradise. Hale O’Nui Kea Kala, the house of many sea colors is the perfect location to truly enjoy the Big Island of Hawai‘i.

Other Activities: Health/beauty spa, shopping, and boating.
