7 days in Paradise!
As first time visitors to the Hawaiian Islands, Big Island was the second stop on our journey. After reviewing all the suitable VRBO listings for a couple, we kept coming back to this site in the Captain Cook area and were extremely happy that we did. Maka Nui Cottage and the 5 acre property offered us a great deal, open space on the mountain slope with a beautiful view of the Kealakekua Bay (snorkelled here), a panoramic view of the west coast shoreline and ideal location to tour the entire island. There were many fruit, coffee and Mac trees which not only were supplied in our Welcome Gift Basket but the coffee and Mac nuts are available for purchase. We waited until our return home to enjoy the Mac nuts we bought from Candi and are very sorry we did. They were fantastic, we should have bought more....!
Candi and Michael were excellent hosts providing us many hours of seclusion but available when asked to provide info on a snorkel tour (FairWind AM tour was excellent), dining for lunch & dinner (Sam Choy's was a great suggestion..thank you), visiting the Punalu'u Bake Shop in Na'alehu on our way to Volcano Park and travelling from Hilo to Kona across the island. The new highway thru the mountains and above the clouds saved us lots of time.
Our week on the island wasn't long enough but Thanks to Candi and Michael, we will certainly return for a longer stay. Keep up the good work, you both are excellent ambassadors for this VRBO listing and the island. Future visitors of this heavenly property will not be disappointed.
