10% - SURROUNDED BY THE PACIFIC, SIT ON THE TIDE POOLS, SNORKEL RIGHT DOWNSTAIRS

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Kapoho - Kapoho Makai-Ocean front Home

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 2 - 4

Kapoho Makai has pristine natural views like no other rentals with over one mile of tidepool views on three sides, and from the dining room, living room and 1 of the bedrooms. A very private location with no neighbors and no houses and no lights in the view when in the house and on the Lanai (there's 1 neighbor but we never saw them more than once in a year)! Experience water on four sides when tides are 3.0 and above. Enjoy sun and moon rises and the refreshing ocean breeze with little or no flying pests. You can leave doors and windows open and not need the ceiling fans. This is the freshest air in the world and a most pleasant location to enjoy the sea and tidepools.

You can literally snorkel from the house in the famous Kapoho tidepool that are at your door step. We are located on the edge of the Tidepool Preserve so fishing is allowed to the east and daily locals try with nets and spears with occasional success. The preserve offers entertaining vistas both below and above the water.

Location Information: A five minute drive will take you to Ahalnui Beach Park with its amazing 90+ degree geothermally-heated tide-pool. This is a gorgeous place for the whole family. You are only 15 minutes to unique Pahoa town, which is a step back in time. You will find many very good restaurants to choose from and a ''Real Hawaiian'' atmosphere! You will love this place. We will provide a 'Welcome Letter' once you book so you could have very detailed info of the area as of what to do to have the most fun.

Additional Details for the Rental: Lanai: Great for dining, cocktail and wine happy hours, reading, or just hanging out there to enjoy the Pacific ocean view, sea breeze, or maybe whale watching if you are lucky. Broadband Internet: You may either go wireless, or using the cable modem. Remember to bring your own lap top if you have to work some during your stay; otherwise a smart phone is perfect since most major cellular carriers have connections there. Kid Friendly: The tide pools downstairs are kids' snorkeling paradise! they are not just for 'big kids'! One of the best snorkeling areas among all the Hawaiian islands since it's been the marine conservation area since 1960s.

The Unique Benefits at this House: The Pacific Ocean is right in front of the house, between you and the Pacific, there're the tide pools where you and your children can swim and snorkel in your backyard any time during the day, talk with the fish, swim with the turtle, it's heaven. We found this area is the best of Hawaii, unlike most everywhere else with sandy beach and resort one after another, this is the real and original Hawaii.

Guestbook comments from the owner
stay here at the big island and all I can say is mahalo!

We enjoyed swimming in the tide pools, gazing at the starts and reading and watching the ocean.

It felt like our own private island.

Thank you for sharing your home with us, we will never forget this place.

Aloha.

We love the real Hawaiiana, that's why we purchased our home here and turned it into a lovely and wonderful vacation rental home, so more people could enjoy the nice and unique setting of the house. With our own 30 year home furnishing business experiences, the house is very nicely furnished and decorated, yet comfortable for any age group of folks to have a great vacation and enjoy the Hawaiiana and aloha. And we are glad we could be able to share our home with folks from everywhere of the world.

We found this area is the best of Hawaii, unlike most everywhere else with sandy beach and resort one after another, this is the real and original Hawaii.

We loved our stay at this home! The view of the ocean and tide pools was great! We saw so many fish and even eels in the tide pools and this was a highlight of our stay. The home is beautiful and a wonderful place to stay.

THE VIEW IS INCREDIBLE!

  • 5 out of 5
From the moment we arrived at the house my husband and I were in awe of the views. We booked this house for our honeymoon because we wanted something off the beaten path and away from the crowds. Not only did the big island deliver but so did this house. We woke up every morning in hopes of getting a sunrise picture but the clouds weren't on our side.
He did get some amazing photos of the tides coming and going. We would suggest to anyone renting this property that your rental car be a Jeep Wrangler or SUV. We rented a Camaro. . . . . because it was our honeymoon and first time in Hawaii. We did come across two days where we parked the car around the corner and walked to the house. It wasn't a big deal but it was a little inconvenient. Overall we loved this house! We have hopes of returning to Hawaii next year but we may venture to another island. If we do make it back to the big island we will definitely be booking this house!!
Mahalo!

HAD A GORGEOUS TIME!

  • 5 out of 5
It was not possible to go out to swim from home but being very close to the ponds,we walked to enjoy snorkeking morning,day and evening every day.
The house was clean and comfortable but we found it a little bit tight for FOUR.
Perfect place to stay to enjoy vacation!

STUNNING LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
We had visited the area the previous year and knew we had to stay there next time. The location on the tidepools was a huge draw and we enjoyed swimming everyday. The Wednesday party at kalapana is a do not miss event. The house was well appointed and clean and very private. Highly recommended!

A very special ocean vista in a very well appointed cottage. The location is amazing. We were able to stay several different places on the island. Waipio Rim, Puako, Hilo included. This was our favorite. Of course the full moon and favorable 2.2 tide shifts had much to do with it. Has everything one could want for 4 days of true relaxation.However....awaiting return of damage deposit.

Owner's Response: Hi there, really appreciate you think our house is your most favorite among the few houses you stayed on our island. Glad you experienced the high tide and full moon, it's spectacular, isn't it!
I didn't charge you the security deposit, it's only held onto the credit.
Aloha

THE PROPERTY WAS EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED.

  • 5 out of 5
The house was right on the tide pools and even though there was a house right next door there was no one there. When we couldn't get the TV to work the local manager was over almost immediately. We saw at least 30 different fish in the big tide pool near the house. The best snorkeling we have ever had. Would definitely recommend this house to others and hope to stay here again in the future.
