We loved staying in John's beautiful home! John and Krista were great to work with. The home is perfectly located in the town of Captain Cook, away from the more touristy areas of Kona and Kohala, although we enjoyed visiting those areas for a meal or a stroll. On our second day, we kayaked on the bay and swam with spinner dolphins for close to two hours; they jumped and spun around just 10 feet from us. That night we snorkeled with the manta rays with a great tour operator, Blue Sea Cruises. We were in the water for 30 minutes with eight enormous mantas and they were within inches of us. Almost too close for me! On Tuesday evening we went to a luau at the Mauna Kea resort, which was very well done as far as luaus go. Wednesday we snorkeled and kayaked again. We enjoyed dinner at Sam Choy's that night. Thursday my husband and sons played golf at Makalei Golf Club while I enjoyed a massage at the Fairmont Orchid. Friday we spent the entire day at the Kilauea Volcano park which was fabulous. And then after leaving this lovely home on Saturday, we enjoyed a delicious lunch by the water at the Four Seasons resort. We also enjoyed swimming with turtles and reef sharks nearby at Two Step on Friday and Saturday mornings. All in all we had a fantastic time, and John's home was the perfect place to relax and enjoy ourselves after activity-filled days.
