A COZY PRIVATE HOME WITH BEAUTIFUL COASTLINE VIEWS

Captain Cook House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 2-4)

Watch the sun dip toward the sea painting the skies with orange, pink, red, violet, lavender, and blue, while you are relaxing in an Indonesian sling-back chair on the lanai. Soothing breezes fan the trees sending up scents of plumeria. Soon the evening stars appear and the surf is heard above the hush that follows the setting of the sun. Night has fallen and the coastline is now dotted with lights.

Tomorrow perhaps you will go to the beach a couple of streets below and play in the tidal pools. Or hike along the coast and investigate a cinder cone. Watch whales and dolphins swim by. Or maybe you will go sightseeing or snorkeling and be with the turtles and multi-colored fish. Perhaps you will just stay and read. Or study the original artwork by local and international artists displayed within the house.

For dinner, you might decide to go to one of the restaurants in a nearby town or venture to Kailua for more choices and a little nightlife; although it would be lovely to stay and eat in. The kitchen is well equipped to handle simple to gourmet preparations. Enjoy the dining set made from three hundred year-old roots from a jungle in Thailand. Afterward, sink into one of the sofas and feel the inviting softness of the hand-knotted rug from Tibet under your bare feet. Select a movie to watch from the DVD collection in the teak armoire. Or listen to music played on a high quality stereo/CD player.

Then slip into the cool, comfortable bed and let the sound of the surf and the night wind be your lullaby.

If you can imagine yourself in this peaceful setting, then Hale Mele Kohola is for you.

While we were in college we would take day trips either to Shenandoah in Virginia or to Sugarloaf Mountains in Maryland. At other times we would go to Ocean City. We would talk about how wonderful it would be to live in a place where both features existed side by side. When we came to Hawaii we saw that this dream could come true. Our children agreed as they also love the mountains and the sea. Buying an island home to where we could come for rejuvenation has been one of the best decisions of our life.

Nanette and Gary purchased this house in 2003

While in the military, we lived on Oahu for three very short years, then our tour was up and had to go to the next station. Before we left, we did have a chance to visit the Big Island. We had heard that it got cold in Volcano and that the mountains would be snow capped in winter. We were intrigued so we went for a weekend and sure enough, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa had snow on their peaks! In the morning there was frost on the windows. There are sixteen micro-climates in the world and fourteen are on the Big Island; is that not astounding? You can go from alpine to semi-arid in a matter of a few hours! We fell in love with the Big Island and secretly wished that someday we would return. We liked its slower pace of life. We go on holiday to get away from it all and we can do that here. When we look at the sweeping views of the coastline and the beautiful sunsets and the way the moon shimmers in the water; the schools of dolphins and pods of whales that swim by - all from the vantage point of our lanai, we know that we made the correct decision to buy a vacation rental here.

Hale Mele Kohola offers you all the comforts of your own home, and more!

A charming home with a fabulous view!

I stayed here at the end of Jan. 2014. The house is beautiful, with comfortable furniture, and an incredible view of the ocean. There is one caution, be prepared for a lot of steps leading up to the entry doors. The owner is a delightful woman who will send you loads of helpful information, and the local caretaker is equally delightful. You'll find the caretaker's Kona coffee waiting for you, a platter of local fruit, and fruit trees from which you can pick more. I will definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Your comment about the stairs made me smile and brought to mind the first time we climbed up those very same steps and wondered how many more there might be. At the top we were rewarded with a view that took our breath away! We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that you will return. We look forward to that day. Mahalo nui loa for choosing our island home for your holiday.

Perfect Vacation Home for Family of Four

Just returned refreshed and renewed after a week at this beautiful home. Whether you want to simply stay put and enjoy the stunning views from the lanai or use it as an excellent base to explore the Southern part of Hawaii, especially the Volcanoes National Park, it checks all the boxes: stunning 180 sea views, clean and comfortable, well equipped (esp the kitchen), artistically inspiring and great layout. The owner, Nanette, is a sweetheart and was a font of knowledge about the local amenities. She helped make us feel like locals, even though it was our first time to the island. I recommend this home wholeheartedly, with the small caveat that the access road to the house is very steep and not for the faint of heart.
Owner's Response: Nothing makes us feel better than to know that our guests enjoyed being in our island home and felt at ease exploring the Big Island. Mahalo nui loa for making Hale Mele Kohola a part of your Hawai'ian holiday memories. We look forward to your return!

Nanette's home was perfect. It's easy to get to and very close to the best snorkeling on the island - Two Step. We appreciated the chairs, umbrellas, and snorkeling fins. The classic films entertained us every night. The home is very well equipped. I'd recommend the house to anyone wanting a private home in the Captain Cook area.

Thank you, Nanette, for allowing us to stay in your beautiful vacation home. Everything was wonderful. It was sparkling clean, artistically decorated, thoughtfully supplied, and easy to find and access. We loved the ocean view and breezes and location so close to Two Step - an amazing snorkeling spot from shore.
Owner's Response: You are most welcome! We are happy that you took with you wonderful and pleasant memories of Hawai'i and our island home. We look forward to your return!

Dear Nanette,
it was our first time in Hawaii. We started in Waikiki and visited Big Island next, where we had two different accommodations.Hawaii was very impressive; the nature, the beaches, the people, the weather, the wonderful/magical sunsets, exciting volcanos-active and excint.
But the first thing that comes into my mind when I think about Hawaii is that cottage-it just impressed me incredibly! And even though we hardly stayed longer than to sleep there, we discovered so many wonderful things everyday: the marvelous bed linen, the lovely towels, kitchen appliances to fall in love with, washing machine and dryer to go, fabulous beach towels....We thought we were at home since everything was of so high-quality, stylishly and lovingly chosen and furnished.
Thank you so much for the most beautiful time in Capt. Cook - The smell of the shower gel will always make me remember it!

Owner's Response: It is always a joy to us when we read that our guests appreciate the efforts that we put into making our vacation home as comfortable and welcoming as we know how, and such joy multiplies when they take with them wonderful, indelible memories of Hale Mele Kohola. How lovely to know that our island home has added to the pleasure of your experience on the Big Island of Hawai'i. Mahalo nui loa, Alexandra and Uwe, for choosing to stay at Hale Mele Kohola all the way from Berlin, Germany!
