We stayed for one night at the Kapoho Village Inn but wished that we could have stayed a week. It was the perfect place for our family, which included our four young kids (ages 3-7) and my aging parents. It is clean and simply but beautifully and very tastefully decorated. The lay-out of all the rooms opening up onto an outdoor breezeway, with the kitchen centrally located and several shared bathrooms comfortably spread around worked well. The privacy was fabulous with kids, because we didn't have to worry about their being too loud! (Our party of 8 rented the whole inn.) There is a magical hillside in back that the kids loved playing on - like their own little jungle. And the sites to explore and things to do in the area abound - we only just scratched the surface. If we could return to anywhere on the Big Island, I would go back to Pahoa and stay in this lovely Inn. Chris made the reservation, arrival, and departure process smooth, easy, and very laid-back. We highly recommend it and hope to return again someday!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Step back in time, when railroads and sugarcane dominated the Big Island of Hawaii. This former railroad station now caters to visitors in search of adventure. Sunshine, cooling trade winds and mountain glimpses all compliment its choice hilltop location. Our small hotel is nestled beside Green Mountain with its crater lake, where you're only a short 5 minute drive to incredible snorkeling in the Kapoho tide pools, soaking in the Ahalanui hot ponds, or catching a wave at Pohoiki. ... more less
