We had a wonderful time in Hawaii! The property location was outstanding! I enjoyed the geothermal pond in front of the house with a lot different tropical fish coming up to be fed. The water was warm and it turned out this pond was a lot better then Champaign Pond in my opinion for snorkeling. The house had all that we needed, and Sophia was outstanding to work with. She responded very fast when we had issue getting through the gate. We left secure windows open at night and enjoyed the wonderful breeze that blows through the house at night. We enjoyed playing pool downstairs and the area was very quiet.
We got used to the 9 mile drive to town of Pohoa. The town of Pohoa doesn't look like much but boy did we have some fantastic meals there and the people are very friendly!
The drive to Volcano National Park took about 30 to 40 minutes but is worth the drive! The hiking is great and seeing the lights at night of Kilauea was spectacular! Make sure you bring a jacket!
I would have no problem coming back to this house or recommending it to our friends.
Great location for seeing the volcano and snorkelling. It met and exceeded our expectations based on the pictures and description. Kids will love the naturally heated ocean pool nearby. Snorkelling was excellent. House had everything we needed. Audrey took good care of us. We even caught a fish for dinner just casting out front. Audrey has fishing rods to rent. Would stay here again for sure.
This was our 2nd stay at Champagne Ponds and first at this home. Lagoon House has THE BEST location in the area -- it's situated in the "sweet spot" of the ponds with incredible views, luxurious private pond, easy access to the public ponds but enough privacy so that folks don't swim over to your pond. And the owners stock their pond with stunning fish, better than what you'll see in the public ponds. The home is comfortable but nothing fancy -- clean and with plenty of amenities for a family. We will definitely be going back!
We've stayed at Kapoho Paradise several times now and always leave regretting that we can't live there. We miss Arthurena (the 90 year old sea turtle who lived in the pond the first time we stayed), but the pond now is a great place to swim in a safe and private environment. The house is superb.
Located in the Puna District of Hawaii's Big Island, Kapoho offers everything one can imagine from a postcard perfect vacation paradise. The beaches here are stunning, and the protected biodiversity of the area makes for extraordinary scuba diving and whale watching opportunities. Kapoho Bay offers especially beautiful coastline trails where crystal tide pools showcase a dazzling population of colorful urchins and sea stars.
But what makes Kapoho unique among all the districts of the Big Island is its volcanic history. One of Kilauea's most historic eruptions took place in 1960, which resulted in a slow moving flow that gradually encased the buildings of an entire town. The Cape Kumukahi Lighthouse remained standing, one of the few structures to survive. The area now draws visitors from all over the world who come to see nature's destructive power and astonishing resilience.
Here are a few additional suggestions for your trip to Kapoho:
Play on the beach: Kapoho Bay Beach is a beautiful strip of soft golden sand and blue waves. This is a perfect place to go swimming, snorkeling, kite surfing, or just lie in the sun and relax.
Go tide pooling: Explore the Kapoho Tide pools; the rocky part of the coastline is a wonderful place to encounter sea life captured by the retreating tide.
Visit the Cape Kumukahi Lighthouse: While at the lighthouse, take the short walk to the historic Kapoho Cemetery, the area covered by lava during the eruption in 1960.
Visit Lava Tree State Park: Explore Lava Tree State Park to see the fascinating lava formations that were left behind when volcanic eruptions overcame native Ohi'a trees.
Visit the Panaewa Zoo: See the animals of the only tropical rainforest zoo in the United States. See beautiful white tigers and meet the friendly animals of the petting zoo.
Hike to Rainbow Falls: The view of these breathtaking falls reminds visitors that they are truly in Hawaii. Hike to this perfect vision of tropical paradise and swim in the cold clear pools at the top.
No matter what time of year you decide to schedule your visit to Kapoho, you'll have no trouble finding a perfect place to stay. It's always summer here and vacation rentals are always available. Rent an elegant oceanside condo or luxury villa just a few steps away from the beach. While you're here, you may also want to explore Pahoa or the nearby Puna Forest Reserve.
