Kapoho Oceanfront Beach Cottage
Kapoho Vacation Lots I stayed here for three wonderful nights. These two houses are located in a private gated community right on the ocean! There are three small salt water ponds in the yard – and one of them is naturally heated from geothermal activity. It was wonderful!! The houses have their own private pier to get in the ocean. There are no restaurants or anything nearby, but you have a full kitchen. This is a very quiet secluded area – perfect for together-time.
