This was our third time staying at the Kapoho Estate Oceanfront Home.
Everything was perfect. The house was neat and tidy. The bed is extremely comfortable. The kitchen is a nice size and well laid out, so cooking meals was a breeze.
At night, the Coqui's sing you to sleep. During the day, you have the AMAZING tide pools to explore with thousands of fish. Then you can hop over the sea wall and go snorkelling in the ocean or over to Champagne pond.
Sophia is excellent to deal with. Always cheerful and willing to help.

Rented this cottage not knowing what to expect. Was a bit taken aback by all the gates and codes, but after that, our stay was perfect. The home is well stocked so make sure you check to see what others have left behind. We could have saved a bit on bug repellant and sunscreen. Lots of water toys (snorkels, floatation devices, etc)to play with too. We saw tons of fish and even sea turtles.
Thank you for sharing your guys Hawaii experience at our Kapoho Estate Oceanfront home! I am glad to hear you enjoyed. Yes, this is a rural beach community & guests do tend to leave some supplies behind now & then. :-)
Mahalo Nui Loa for leaving your feedback! And I look forward to hearing from you for your returning visit to Hawaii!
With Warm Aloha,

We have stayed at 3 other properties at this location and all were great, this one did not disappoint us.
This home was a little older than the others but clean and well-kept.
Thank you for writing your honest response and glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Yes, this home is a home of history to the area (a Lyman's Family house).
Thank you again for the Estate Home Sketch you made! I am working on getting it on the website now. :)
Happy Holidays & Warm Aloha,

The location is probably one of the best in Hawaii...oceanside with a perfect ocean view, private thermal pool with hundreds(maybe thousands) of tropical fish, adjacent to Champagne pond, which is one of Hawaii's best thermal ponds, and in a gated community. Sofia was awesome and always responded promptly. Check In was simple and the instructions were perfect.
This was our fourth time to the Big Island (third time staying in the Puna District) and this was our favourite place to stay. Snorkeling in the ponds and Champagne pond was amazing and relaxing. The location was close enough to Pahoa to be convient, but far enough for a sense of seclusion. The internet worked perfect. There was so much to do, we never turned on the TV.
We hope to be back in the near future!!!
