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 Puna District

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.

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.

The Moon House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at The Moon House. Our two boys enjoyed the beautiful and well maintained private swimming pool, with its lava stone terrace. The location is perfect for visiting the must-see lava flow at sunset. The nearby village Pahoa has plenty of restaurants, from Thai to pizza to burgers to local specialities. We "had to do" a number of excursions and were staying only a few days in the house, but we enjoyed its two terraces a lot in the evening. However, the house is also the perfect place not to go anywhere and just relax! The key pickup was on the way to the house on an indicated location very easy to find. There is place for parking more than one car. Ten people are comfortably accommodated. The ground floor (6 beds) is separated from the second (4 beds) and third floor (panorama deck) and can be reached by stairs via both sides of the house. Quite convenient for two families!

Perfect gathering space

  • 5 of 5

Our stay involved a couple of homes and this one was the most wonderful to gather for dinner with the amazing balcony setting and cool breezes. The pool was wonderful and the hammock under the stairs was a perfect touch. If you are looking for a wonderful place to stay this is definitely at the top of the list....Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us
