If I could give more stars I would! Such a beautiful, relaxing stay! Great, great time!
Well, isn't it wonderful when a vacation stay exceeds your expectations? That is what happen here at Gail and Jim's wonderful house in Kapoho. We had an absolutely divine time. The house is very beautiful inside and very tranquil in feel. Such a nicely proportioned house and comfortably furnished. The lanais are fabulous on both levels and we spent a lot of time out on them. I loved my showers in the master bedroom! Every day we snorkeled in the little sheltered bay, looked at our fish friends and saw a turtle there almost every day! Went across the bay to the Champagne Pools several times and swam in warm waters. The Kapoho Tide Pools are absolutely awesome and a 10 to 15 minute walk away from the house. We would come back just for those amazing pools. Lots of huge, gloriously beautiful parrot fish and others of many hues. We wandered the island and that was really fun but actually the best memories on our trip were just hanging in this marvelous house and paddling around in the water nearby. The kitchen is really nice to cook in, well stocked with utensils. There is a small farmers market nearby, and more in the area on different days, and we found fresh fish being sold on the side of the road on the way to Pahoa. Pahoa also has a charming restaurant, Kaleo's, that we highly recommend with really good food, a lovely man singing and playing his guitar the night we were there. Pahoa is a great little hippy town with a nice co-op with great coffee. Also there is a fabulous, funky bar, Uncle Robert's, that is not to be missed about 20 minutes down the road! Fun! At night, we had the patio screens open and the trade winds would send me to sleep as soon as my head hit the pillow! Gail was in Australia while we were there but we had some very nice email communications from her from the beginning. But we have to say this. Jim rocks! Such a great guy! Lovey guy to talk with, gave lots of great hints on things to do and was unobtrusively attentive. They live across the street which is very comforting! The thing is, this is just one of the perfect houses to relax and have a wonderful vacation whether you are with friends (as we were part of the time) or as a couple, or hanging by myself. The house remains the same and that is glorious. Can't recommend enough!
