Captain Cook Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1BR Oceanview Vacation Rental Captain Cook, Hawaii USA

Imagine sitting at a table or reclining in a lawn chair, perched on the mountain side above Kealakekua Bay, looking over the southern Kona coastline with an unobstructed view at the 1200 ft elevation. 'Wow', you say, 'the view is incredible!' A veritable slice of paradise, with ocean glistening to the west and mountain slopes to the south. Your soul is at peace. Red cardinals and yellow finches are scampering for food. A canoe race or fishing tournament just might be happening in the ocean near the coastline.

We have such a place - a one-bedroom vacation rental on our working macadamia nut and coffee farm. This is where the South Kona Macadamia Nut Company processes its succulent nut products. The grounds around the rental have citrus and banana trees, but the orchard of coffee and macadamia nut trees comprise the commercial aspect of the farm.

The rental is in the lower level of the main house; a screened-in porch has a kitchenette and futon sofa. Very private.

Open another screen door and the avocado green walls of a large bedroom, complete with a queen-sized bed and tropical furnishings, greet you. The bathroom has a large shower. With a separate entrance, your privacy is assured.

Located on Napo'opo'o Road in Captain Cook on the big island of Hawaii, you are minutes away from the famous Kealakekua Bay and other Hawaiian sites of interest. Swim, snorkel, or kayak; drive around the island; visit the national parks; or, just stay put and soak up the view! Shopping centers are close by as are fine restaurants.

What a beautiful place!

It's a paradise!

We've loved everything: fruit trees, flowers, landscape, calm, music and overall our hosts.

They are very generous and hearty.

We'll recommend this place to anyone.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5
SK Vacation Rental offers you simple elegance, convenience and comfort--and did we mention the awesome view of Kealekekua Bay?! Experience life on a working mac nut farm (yum!) in the beautiful rural ambience of South Kona. Awaken to the dawn chorus of myriad birds, and fall asleep to the gentle pattter of Kona's famous misty rain (where all that green comes from!).
Your hosts Brad and Meris will do everything they can to make you comfortable. (And Brad can give you a lot of inside information on the history and sociology of South Kona). Co-hosts Blackie and Kai will be your best friends if you bring them the occasional biscuit.
While in South Kona be sure to: (1) visit Pu'uhonua O Honaunau (Place of Refuge) and snorkel at Two-Step (Honaunau Beach), (2) rent a Kayak from Ehu & Kai's on the bay (follow the signs) and paddle to the Capt. Cook monument where you can beach the boat and snorkel (and if you are lucky, the dolphins will come swim with YOU), and (3) have a down-home Hawaiian-style dinner at the Manago Hotel (we recommend the famous pork chops).

A Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here during our first trip to the Big Island this past February. After much deliberation about choosing a hotel vs. renting a cottage, we found this listing and are so happy we did! The view from the lanai is simply breathtaking. Waking up each morning and sipping Kona coffee while looking down upon Kealakekua Bay remains a favorite memory of Hawaii. Brad and Meris are kind and hospitable hosts, who are very knowledgeable about the island and left us fresh produce from their farm every day. We were so sad that we couldn't stay longer. This place is truly a little piece of Heaven!

Fabulous Place to Stay on the Kona Coast!

  • 5 of 5
All the places we stayed on the Big Island were wonderful, but this one was by far and away the best. First of all, there is the view, which is incredibly expansive and visible from the very comfortable lanai. Although the place is small, the lanai and outdoor living area help it to 'live big'.
The kitchen area (on the lanai) is small and a stove is not permitted, but the owners have made up for that by providing every possible kind of electrical appliance plus the grill outside. You can't cook Thanksgiving dinner for 12, but you should be able to pull off the kind of cooking most of us do on vacation quite nicely. The owners are around and helpful, but not intrusive. (And they grow really yummy macadamia nuts!) The bed is great, bathroom spacious, beach towels and mats provided. If we are on the Kona Coast again, this definitely will be where we stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your wonderful review! We strive to provide a comfortable place from which to soak in the view and cruise the island. You came during the the rainy season but it didn't deter you from getting around. Come back and help us mow the lawn!

Comfortable spot with a beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at SK. It is so peaceful and quiet with a stunning view. We arrived a day late because of a dental emergency so I was not feeling very well and this was the perfect spot to recuperate. The main living space is a screened in area where we spent most of our time. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and we either prepared for picnics or ate all of our meals there, which not only saved us a ton of money but having a meal with this view was just perfect.

Meris and Brad are such interesting people and were so kind and helpful - they were genuine in their interest in us as guests. We loved learning about the macadamia farm and my husband even spent some time helping out with sorting, which he was delighted to do - a rather unusual experience.

If you do any sewing then be sure and visit what certainly is one of the best fabric stores on the planet, H. Kimura in Kealakekua. Very reasonable prices.

If you want peace and quiet in a rural setting this is a rental we would highly recommend.

great place, not too far from all the beaches

  • 3 of 5
this place is great for a short to medium stay; you get everything you need as far as 1 bedroom apartment. There were a few things which I would like to point out: first there was no stove (as it was advertise) to cook our meals; just an electric plate, and several small kitchen alliances no capable of cooking a full meal. We like to prepare our own breakfast and dinner. To boil a tea kettle it took at least 15 min. let alone cooking rice or pasta !!!!. An electrical rage cost less then $ 400.00 !!! Second: There was no wifi connection despite all the efforts and attempts made by Meris and Brad to install a faster internet device. Probably there is too much distance between the source and the apartment below. Third: Our AT&T iPhone cellular connection was sporadic at best and there is no land line in the unit to use in case of an emergency or to make local calls. Considering the fact that this rental unit is almost always full at $ 100.00 x day it would not be too expensive to install an electrical range and provide a real wifi connection. Meris and Brad provided a full range of very helpful advises on sites , place to shop ect.. Beside these inconveniences this place is a perfect in every other aspect.

Owner's Response: I appreciate your honesty in evaluating your stay at SK Vacation Rental. I am trying desperately to remedy the WIFI situation, tho the past 3 guests have had success in accessing the internet. Sometimes it's the difference in manufacturers which inhibit good reception. Not being tech knowledgeable to remedy the situation myself, I have to rely on those who are.
As for the stove, it is against Code to put a full stove in that space, so that's why there are smaller appliances for cooking. I will replace the hotplate, but the other appliances seemed to have worked fine for others. I didn't realize it was an issue with you as you left very early in the day and came back after dark and never mention it to me directly.
All the guests have had their own phones but our hardline one upstairs is always available should it be necessary to use. It has not been an issue with previous guests.
I'd like to stress to those who read this review response that your comments and concerns are always welcome while you are here so I can explain what I can't fix (stove) and try to correct what I can. Your enjoyment of our space is top priority.
Aloha, Meris Farwell
