Mama J's Tropical House


Stan and I had a property in Kapoho listed with VRBO for four and a half years. Mama J's Pond House was taken by Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of fire on June 5th, 2018 during the Kilauea eruption. During our time of being hosts, we learned a lot about hospitality and what guests desired in that five-star rental. We are happy to announce the second phase of Mama J's called The Tropical House opening Nov 20th, 2018. We call it the Tropical House alluding to the lush greenery & flowers that surround this very private home & its' yards. There are mature lychee, mountain apple & avocado trees you may pick from if fortunate enough to be there during the season. ~~Mama J's 3rd bedroom is used as a library hosting an extensive collection of Hawaiiana books, a writing desk with garden view, a comfy chair with reading lamp and a sliding glass door leading to large covered deck with garden views. Our paved cul de sac is completely hidden from view by the lush tropical foliage.~~Master bedroom features a king bed with teak bedside tables & a vanity with mirror. There is a full en suite bathroom that has shower w/ a seat. This bathroom has been completely renovated. There is a small lanai off the master with a teak rocking chair that has comfy cushion.~~The second bedroom features queen bed, solid wood nightstands and a sliding glass door leading to the large lanai at front of house.~~Each bedroom has a full size closet with plenty of hangers and a shelf at top. There is a luggage rack in each room that will fit in the closet if you want it out of the way. Ceiling fans in each room. As with most homes in Hawaii, there is no AC but the many screened doors & windows along with ceiling fans & several mobile fans will keep you cool on all but the very hottest of days.~~In the greatroom, enjoy one of 2 couches, one reclines and the other unfolds to a full size bed. There are sheets for this bed & two extra pillows in hall linen closet. Pass-thru window in the kitchen keeps the cook connected with those in the living area and can view the TV from there. A dining nook with table and 4 chairs round out our greatroom. ~~Outside the back door is a two-car covered car-port. One car may park here as the rest of the space is set up with tables & chairs for al fresco dining. There is also a charcoal grill out here & a propane grill can be supplied by request. There may be some charcoal &/or propane left from the last guests. If not, these items are sold nearby. BBQ tools provided.~ On the spacious lawns, you may play our bocce ball (lawn bowling) & cornhole (beanbag toss). For rainy days, we have Giant Jenga and board games to play on the lanai. Or lounge in hammock or rocker with one of the many books from our in-house Hawaiiana library. A neighborhood convenience store is a 5 minute walk. ~~ Our water is from a well maintained in our community so you may drink directly from tap if you like.~~ Altho' our home is spacious, we have a limit of 5 guests. We also have a 3 week maximum stay. This is so our home can be checked on frequently & kept in tip-top shape. Pele showed no mercy & claimed just about all of our furniture along w/ the home so almost everything is new. We did save our artwork & extensive collection of Hawaiiana books along w/ a gorgeous teak bookcase. The artwork & decorations are by various local artists and add to the tropical feel. An entire wall in the library will is dedicated to memories of Mama J's Pond House displaying photos & newspaper articles about loss of the magical Kapoho area.~~ When booking, please be honest about number of people who will be staying . We do charge a nominal $10 per person per night for more than 2 people. Aloha. Please let us know if you have any questions. Jahnys n' Stan Registration Number: NUC#20-1836+++STVR#19-365354
