    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    Imagine a home where the waves and breezes speak of their long journey across the Pacific. Where "Tale Bearing Winds" of old Hawai'i come ashore clean and cool, then wander through this beautifully restored "old style" home. The "Whispering Seas" can be heard inside the house on most days. The verdant tropical plants outside the home create a private and lush haven for you and your guests to enjoy. The home is 1,120 square feet and has the feel of old Hawai'i. Two additional covered "outdoor living" areas of 200 sf and 300 sf plus a perimeter fence create a sense of privacy, while allowing views of verdant tropical plantings. Every attempt was made to use "real" materials, such as wood, ceramic, non-toxic metal, and glass in... more

    Additional Location Information
    Kapoho Beach Lots is a community of homes built around one of the few swimming areas in the rugged East Hawai'i coastline. A geologic wonder, this area became a geothermally heated swimming area in 1960, when the Kapoho lava flow turned what was cold spring water into geothermally heated spring water. There is a generous flow of heated (80+ degrees) water out of the shoreline rocks. The fresh water floats upon the denser sea water if the ocean is calm. This wonderful warm layer makes swimming here a joy, especially at low tide, regardless of the season.

    The Kapoho ahupua'a (land division) is known in the ancient lore of Hawai'i. There are legendary accounts of the Spaniards coming ashore here long before Captain Cook was even born! Several "wahi pana" or celebrated places here are appropriate to visit. Renters will get a packet of my ideas to help enrich their experience.
    The community of Kapoho Beach Lots is a residential gated community, and feels a lot...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2014

If you are looking for a quiet getaway on the Big Island, this house fits the bill. The owner of the house was very friendly and provided great service. You could tell that she wanted us to experience the best vacation possible. The house contains all of the necessities, requiring renters to only get their food for their stay. Every... more
