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.
Response from the manager Aloha Guest! Thank you so much for wonderful review and glad you shared your Big Island trip at my family's Kapoho Home :). Yes, please return again we give repeat guest discounts. Mahalo Nui Loa! ~ Sophia ~
“it really is paradise”
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.
Response from the manager Aloha! You are some of Best Guests and really appreciate your returns. Thank you for your stay and wonderful feedback. We look forward to having you at our homes next year hopefully :). Thank you and Mahalo Nui Loa! Sophia
We loved this house and it became our home for 12 days. The pond was superb, well stocked and the view was amazing. Sophia was so attentive and makes an excellent property manager. For a large family, or a group of friends, this house fits the bill.
Response from the manager Aloha Kate! We are so happy you and your family enjoyed the home and our aquatic pond. We enjoyed having you in our home and hope to see or hear from you soon on your returning visit to the Big Island. Thank you again and take care! Mahalo Nui Loa! Aloha! Sophia
“An amazing place for young snorkelers!”
We based this rental on the reviews. Glad we did. The ponds are warm and have a wide variety of sea life. Our kids hadn't snorkeled before (7 & 8 y.o.) They learned in an amazing place! We started out in the pond right in front of the house. Once they got comfortable in their gear we moved out to Champagne Pond and then tried a bit in the bay. It was a great way to transition them. As experienced snorkelers, my husband and I enjoyed it also. There wasn't the coral or sea urchins we have seen on Maui but we saw just as many types of fish and more eels than on Maui. The visitors area expected to feed the fish every other day. The kids loved to watch all of the fish and the eels going after the food. The home was well stocked and Sophia, the manager, was very helpful and nice. It is a nice and clean home. The beds were comfortable, there were washers and dryers in the house. The lanais were wonderful. We ate most of our meals on the covered East side and enjoyed the night air out there every night. We did not experience any mosquitoes. We brought our snorkel gear but there were extra snorkel sets, swim noodles, and rafts available. Don't expect anything fancy. Expect clean and nice. I would definitely stay there again. This is a great home base if you want to visit Volcanoes National Park, HWY 137 Kalapana-Kapoho Road, Hilo, and waterfalls near Hilo. It is very close to Lava Tree State Park, however that fell off our agenda due to our schedule.
“Better than the photos! Truly exceptional”
Although we were dodging hurricanes Guerillmo and Hilda (August 2015), our stay at Kapoho Paradise beach house was truly great! The snorkeling in the backyard pond was the best we had experienced since the water was so warm and calm. With three little kids (10-12 yrs old) just learning to snorkel, it was perfect! Full kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms with a game room below (not that we used it though). Grocery shopping is a bit inconvenient - about 30 minutes to Pahoa. But that's part of the beauty of Kapoho - secluded! And it really is gorgeous. Sunrises off the back patio are unreal. Sophia was great and called to check in on us several times. We'll be back for sure.
“The Wow factor is pretty high”
We enjoyed the ocean views and the spectacular sunrises. My wife loved swimming in the heated lagoon which was like swimming in an aquarium. With Sophia as a gracious hostess, all our needs were looked after. The house was well furnished and equipped with everything we required. When extremely high winds briefly knocked out our power supply, Sophia was there almost immediately to set up a generator.
Response from the manager Aloha! It was a pleasure having you in our home and I appreciate meeting you two. :) Thank you for sharing your guys Hawaii experience at our Kapoho Paradise Oceanfront home! I am glad to hear you enjoyed. Mahalo Nui Loa for leaving your feedback! And I look forward to hearing from you for your returning visit to Hawaii (I also can set you up in Kona if you like also)! With Warm Aloha, Sophia Sophia A.

“Fabulous private stocked pond”
This is a wonderful place to stay in the Pahoa area of the Big Island if you love snorkeling,as we do. The house has an open floor plan, a wonderful view of the ocean and it's own volcano warmed ocean water pond stocked with tropical fish you are allowed to swim with and feed.. The upper level house has 2 bedrooms and a full bath, all clean and in good shape. The kitchen is well stocked, though a bit dated in decor. The lower level is not connected to the upper except with outdoor steps. It is a small room with bunk beds and a built in desk, cement floor and is on level with the pond. It was fine for my 22 yo son who liked having his own space but I would be careful of having young children out there. There is also a basic, but clean bathroom on the same level, also with a cement floor. Very convenient when outside swimming or snorkeling. We had a wonderful time.
“Paradise Oceanfront stands up to it's name!”
It was very hard to leave the lanai of the Paradise Oceanfront home. The view is spectacular! The sound of the ocean all day long is so nice. Swimming in the private pond was heaven for me. The house was comfortable and beachy. They had everything we needed. Great to BBQ and eat out on the lanai. Very safe neighborhood where we felt comfortable walking everyday.

“Good waterfront value.”
Excellent large group/family house...warm, flat water pond safe and fun for ages 3 to 66...open bay with wave and surf a one minute walk for those who want a more active swim.

“Best of all Worlds: Relaxation and adventure!”
Aloha! This home and area is a wonderful slice of paradise! Thank you, Sophia, for being such a wonderful hostess! We will be sure to pass our experience onto friends and family and we hope to return to see you again! We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the house, the ponds, the view, and the surrounding island! The house location really is the best of both worlds: calms ponds for swimming (we have a 20 month old and she had a ball!) while hearing and viewing the rolling ocean from the upper lanai! The sweet serenade from the coqui frogs at night as the temperature was just perfect! The sunrise is amazing every morning..be sure to be up to see it and then take your first morning swim with the early rays! Some wonders found in the right near the house (Lava Tree Park, Yoga Oasis, Hot Dog man, Papaya Fields, Mackenzie Park, drive along Rt137) as well as some jewels in the close by village of Pahoa (Paolo's Italian Restaurant, Luquin's Mexican Restaurant, the small grocery market). Beyond the Puna District we enjoyed exploring the rest of the island too: Black Sands Beach, Mauna Kea Beach on the east side, just the drive around the hole island perimeter, Volcano's Ntl Park, various waterfalls around Hilo, Hilo Farmer's Market & Downtown, the Zoo. Two of us even flew to Oahu for a day trip to Pearl Harbor..easily doable in a day trip there and back. However, we always enjoyed coming back to Kapoho Paradise to just relax and swim, and swim, and swim...did I mention swim! Thanks again for such a wonderful experience! Mahola!
