About the property

Brand New 4 Beddroom 3 Bath House

Welcome to our brand new (completed in December 2014) ocean view vacation retreat in paradise. Lounge on the 3rd floor lanai and watch for whales, have dinner under palm trees, and swim in the private swimming pool with a waterfall.

The house is located in the beautiful oceanfront gated community of Kapoho Beach, home of the world famous thermal Champagne Ponds. The home is less than two-minutes walk to Kapoho Bay and the Pacific Ocean, as well as only a five-minute walk to Champagne Ponds. Sunny Kapoho Bay is at the eastern most point of the Big Island in a local rain shadow.

Swim in the swimming pool under palm trees! Watch your kids from the dining lanai while they play in the pool. Outdoor shower!

The kitchen is fully stocked with all new gadgets such as blender, microwave, food processor, coffee maker, toaster, all stainless-steel appliances, fridge with ice maker.

The main living/dining room area incorporates an oversized lanai with dining for eight. The outdoor sitting area overlooks the pool and back yard. The indoor living room features a large flat-panel tv. The open concept offers enough space for children to run around and play.

The house has a 3rd floor lanai with stunning ocean views. Watch the sunrise over the ocean while you sip your morning coffee. In the evening, watch the moon rise while you prepare cocktails in the 3rd floor wet bar.

The main floor has two bedrooms (1 king & 1 queen) and two full bathrooms, the first floor has a family room, and two bedrooms (1 queen & 2 bunks) and one full bathroom.

The house is perfect for large family get-togethers. Enjoy the leisurely pace of Kapoho Beach, visit the near-by Waipio Tidal Pools for snorkeling, swim in the Alahanui State Park hot springs, drive to the end of the red road along the Puna coast to Kalapana and Uncle Roberts (the local farmer's market and Hawaiian treasure). Have dinner in quirky Pahoa and see the latest lava flow (600' from town). The house allows for separation between old and young - the teenagers will enjoy the large flat-screen tv in the family room (internet and cable). Adults will enjoy the dining deck and the tranquil 3rd floor lanai with stunning ocean views.

About Sarang Joshi

We are professors at a large metropolitan state university on the main land. We have two lively boys who enjoy spending the summers in care-free rural Hawaii. We love spending time together away from the hustle and bustle of urban living.

Sarang Joshi purchased this house in 2014

Why Sarang Joshi chose Kapoho

We first came to Hawaii in 1999 and fell in love with the Big Island. We joked that it's the best place to buy land since it's the only place where land actually grows. After visiting the Big Island for years, we found our dream spot in Kapoho Beach, the sunniest spot on the green and lush East side of the island. We moved fast to buy land and build our vacation house.

What makes this house unique

We designed the house with inside-outside living in mind. The floor plan maximizes entertaining opportunities. The dinning lanai on the back of the house overlooks the pool while the third floor lanai offers great vistas of Kapoho Bay and the Pacific Ocean.

Such a fantastic place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

This place has quite the wow factor when you walk in the door. It was absolute heaven to sit out on the main floor lanai overlooking the pool and the third floor lanai with the view of the ocean. What a treat to have two fantastic outdoor spaces to enjoy, and that doesn't even include the pool area below, which is also great! The beds were very comfortable, the bedding and towels were clean, and the kitchen was quite well stocked. The communication with Sarang was also very good, and she was always quick to respond. We even loved hearing all the night sounds from the creatures outside, just like we were in the jungle!

The only slight downside is that it wasn't super clean. We had asked for an earlier check in though so it could very well be on us as the cleaner was hurrying and trying to accommodate our request.

Overall, we'd highly recommend staying here and wouldn't hesitate to come back!

Excellent location with lots to do in the area. Very nice to have a pool.

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice. It is really 2 apartments with no access to the different floors from inside the house which was no problem for us but it would be nice to know going in. The kitchen was short on a few items, ie: wine glasses and cutlery. Some small bar soap for each bathroom would be nice. The lanai - both of them were lovely. Not a lot of seating in the livingroom if you have a big group but nice big table outside.

The snorkeling on the property was wonderful.

Beautiful home!

  • 3 of 5

The home is very beautiful and comfortable. It's a nice easy walk to Champagne Pond. There were a few minor issues. But, do not lay out in the grass, FIRE ANTS!

Great family get away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Moon House with a family of 3 couples and a single adult. Plenty of space and walking to snorkeling and fishing spots a big plus. Quiet neighborhood. Car is a necessity. Loved several restaurants in nearby Pahua.

Pool was perfect for the children. Upper lanai was well loved by the parents. Champagne ponds up the street were amazing! View from upper balcony was gorgeous. Sounds of waves and cocki frogs were peaceful and enjoyable.
