CHARMING COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Style, space, comfort and beauty; that is how I would describe this cottage. The front and back yards are serene and entice you to sit and relax. Beds are comfortable , everything is clean and we'll cared for with attention to detail. We spent early mornings and evenings on the lanai listening to birds and the ocean. You are a short walk away from beautiful sunsets and in the opposite direction, a place to swim. Do your grocery shopping before you arrive since you are not close to any stores. It was heaven

QUIET RETREAT BY THE BAY

  • 4 of 5
We had a lovely stay at Hale Keo Keo. Everything was accurately described on the web site. The TV is actually better than in the pictures. It was a charming, older home with a quaint cottage feel. It was very clean and well maintained. It has a great yard with an awesome papaya tree. We spent a lot of time on the lanai playing board games and having leisurely meals. Although the owner is many time zones away, we had no problem communicating. We met both the local caretaker and cleaner and knew that we could contact them if we needed anything further. The road down the hill is long, but it is certainly not scary as described in other reports. The local beaches are not the best for suntanning as there is lots of coral and lava. However, the snorkeling was divine. This was a lovely quiet location, away from the crowds. We had a great time here and would definitely stay at this property again.

COMFORTABLE, SPACIOUS, WELL-EQUIPPED FAMILY COTTAGE IN A HEAVENLY LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My family just returned from two weeks at Hale Keo Keo. The house itself was comparable to a cottage we stay at each summer on Lake Huron; very homey and roomy for 2 adults and a teen. We appreciated the snorkeling equipment available (though we did buy some as well) and a well-stocked bathroom and kitchen, especially the blender for smoothies. We also enjoyed the exotic birdsong and putting a freshly fallen and fragrant plumeria bloom in our hair each day. For the first couple days we enjoyed sitting on the lanai but after that there was a lot of rain in the evenings and a lot of bugs. We were getting bit pretty badly so went inside at night unless we were out and about. We didn't have much contact with the management but what contact we did have we found to be smooth, friendly, and helpful. For a few nights the bug thing bothered us INside the house and we made some efforts to seal up a few spots in screens and in the wood frames. I didn't mention this to management until a couple days before we left and she was super apologetic and said it was likely time for them to spray again. It did not detract from our overall enjoyment but for a couple hours. Kealakekua Bay is spectacularly beautiful; it's a 30 second walk in one direction to the wharf where there is some snorkeling and all the guided kayak trips across the bay begin. We chatted with the tour operators to determine which one to go with. It's important to kayak with one of these licensed tour operators in order to land at Captain Cook Monument. There's quite an effort going into retaining and recovering the fragile ecology of the bay. Part of this effort involves limiting the number of visitors using the area, particularly the water. In spite of this, we still observed some unlicensed and perhaps dangerous activity going on. We can recommend Aloha Kayak Co. as friendly, knowledgeable and competent guides.
At the other end of the short road is the state park which houses important cultural relics that can be read about elsewhere. There are some paths to walk and the surf is quite dramatic but the beach disappeared some time ago. Still it is a beautiful place to watch the sunset.
Within walking distance past the wharf is Manini Beach and the Place of Refuge is a short drive for those interested in culture and history, as well as another snorkel spot, Two Step.
The Choicemart in Captain Cook was our preferred grocer.
A negative: The road to and from the highway is long and windy. Scary at night.

OLD HAWAIIAN STYLE

  • 4 of 5
We spent a week here in Sept 2011. We were pleasantly surprised to find the home better than portrayed in the pictures. Very charming older home. Great location to walk out to see if the dolphins are in the bay. Kitchen has everything. Large yard. We spent most of our time on the deck in front but also enjoyed the lounge chairs in back to warm up in after a swim. The only negative I can think of is the living room is a little dark and by the end of our stay there was termite poopy in the hallway floor. Both of these issues are minor and should not keep you from renting here-- but just want to keep this real. This area of the Big Island is very special. We swam with dolphins and spotted a manta ray! We even took part in the reopening ceremony of Manini beach. (During our stay there were tons of jellyfish in the bay that caused my daughter to have welts.) Despite the jellyfish; we will return.

WONDERFUL PLACE!!

  • 5 of 5
Hale keo keo is a beautiful, peaceful house, near Captain Cook. As soon as I saw the big tree in the yard, I knew I had come home! They take great care with everything in the house--it is extremely clean, and pleasant. You can walk to two different places where you can put your body in the warm waves. The location is excellent. The yard is private and green. We were with our two adult children, and had a marvelous time, thanks to the great feng shui of Hale keo keo.

A WONDERFUL 10 DAYS ON KAELAKEKUA BAY

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from 10 days at Hale Keo Keo on beautiful Kaelakekua Bay. What a wonderful, wonderful, home to spend time with my wife and 4 adults (kids and 2 spouses). House was an absolute delight with beautiful grounds and within feet of the bay. Kids spent nine days swimming/kayaking with spinner dolphins, sealife/coral, and listenting/watching hump back whales - they didn't miss a day. The cocktails and dinner at sunset on the lanai were wonderful. It was truly an exceptional and enjoyable vacation for all of us.

Booking was extremely easy and the house was where it was supposed to be with all of the amenities that we could have wanted. We also availed ourselves of the local contact twice when we had questions about checking out - we didn't want to leave too early on check-out day.The people involved with managing Hale Keo Keo are easy and confortable to deal with, and they are honest. I also know that the house is an exceptional value when looking at other rates charged for other home rentals on the Bay. The house right across the street was almost three times as expensive as Hale Keo Keo.

The biggest/highest recommendation I can give Hale Keo Keo is that we have already reserved it for ten days in March 2013 for another family retreat. Living in Oregon we have to get out of the rain for a few days in winter. Aloha, Steve

Fantastic snorkeling and swimming all around Kealakekua Bay. Manini Beach (easiest point of entry and highly recommended) and Napoopoo 'beach' (not much sand) are close by. The Kealakekua Bay Wharf is closed to commercial activity (as of 1/1/13). No kayaks are allowed. You can hike or take a tour bout (Fairwind, BodyGlove) to the Captain Cook Monument, or there's great snorkeling around most of the bay.
