This land was purchased over 29 years ago with the dream of one day building a home. The house was designed and built in 1998 with a self contained and separate first floor (the studio rental). Friends here suggested that we rent out the first floor to visitors coming to Kona on vacation. This has worked out well for everyone. Much of our business has been from repeat guests who have become friends and fellow property owners.

Fresh fruits available on the property. Avocados, papayas, mangos, lemons, mountain apple...Peaceful. Pick your own fruits in season.

Please note that May through August are the most humid and hottest months of the year. Hence the lower rates.

Comfort in Captn. Cook

  • 4 of 5
Great location to "become a local" for a week or two. You can visit all points south without fighting Kona traffic. Manini Beach will become your favorite sunset watching location and great snorkeling entry access. The unit is very clean and private. good internet connection and all appliances work well, full size fridge etc. Not a party location but perfect for couple wanting privacy and a home away from home.

Perfect paradise vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to the Big Island and did not know what part of the Island to stay on. After many months of searching for the perfect location we chose this rental after
comparing it to all the other rentals. The price was right and we wanted to be away from the tourist areas. We were not disappointed at all. This place was fantastic. It is everything that was mentioned only more we were not disappointed at all.

The studio apartment was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well supplied with lots of supplies for cooking but If you don't feel like cooking there are some good restaurants close by within 10 min. drive.

The owner was great to work with and was willing to give information about the area. We received lots of info about the area and things to do before we even arrived so that we would have an idea of what to do. Our cleaning deposit was returned to us with in 4 days of returning home.

We enjoyed coming back to this apartment after a full day of exploring this wonderful island. It is a bright and cheerful place and if I hadn't wanted to see the island I would have been content just sitting on the lanai enjoy the view of the ocean and the sunsets while eating the papaya that is grown on the property.

We hope to be able to return to the Big Island and would definitely stay here.

MY RESTING PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Another great relaxing stay in paradise. Our second stay at the studio, this time for 2 1/2 months it is that good. New paint inside and out, new frig, very clean all the time. The view from the porch is wide open toward the ocean. The studio is up a private drive away from road noise and very private, perfect for a couple who want to be alone without the tourist around all the time. A 20 min. drive takes you into town if desired. Great snorkeling 5min drive with warm water, most always calm, 83-84 degs bring water gear or rent nearby. This is a big studio, you are not cramped for room, lots of light through the many windows, and it stays cool all the time, no you will not need air conditioning. There is a nice local market nearby that has everything needed for your stay. We can not wait to return.

Best Stay on the Island!!

  • 5 of 5
This was my sixth visit to Hawaii (2nd time to the Big Island), and this property is undoubtedly my favorite. I have always been fortunate in finding fantastic listings with very gracious hosts throughout the islands, and while I have also expressed in previous reviews how much I felt at home there, this Captain Cook studio ranks over them all!
The studio is clean, comfortable, and spacious. The yard is huge with various fruit trees to pick from. We ate avocados for breakfast every morning while enjoying the endless ocean view from the lanai. The studio is just a short drive from the grocery store and other major retailers, but tucked away on a mountain to feel like you have the island to yourself. It is a great base to start your adventure everyday, and a great home to end your journey each night. As I have been to these islands a few times now, I am no longer looking to have just the tourist experience. For me, this trip was the most memorable and authentic in so many ways, and therefore the most cherished. My stay here tremendously delighted this experience. I am most grateful to the wonderful owner for sharing this home with me. This is the place I wish to return to for years to come.

Complimentary Breakfast Daily

  • 5 of 5
Among the delightful amentities not mentioned is the bountiful supply of papaya fruit that, along with provided Kona coffee, made up my daily breakfast. If you are not a fan of papaya, you might still enjoy sitting on the lanai trying to ID the different colorful birds that the ripe fruit attract. Better yet you could be there in mango or avocado season!
This spacious studio is a refuge from the squawking commercialism of Alii Drive, the main tourist drag. But don't worry, wireless internet speed is superfast and there is lots of hot water. Staying in a hotel, you won't get beach chairs, mats & cooler at your disposal or a washing machine for when you run out of clean clothes.
Take a look around and you will find plenty nearby to check out that you might otherwise have otherwise missed -Kona Coffee Living History, 1890 H.N. Greenwell Store & a chance to help make Portugese bread on Thursdays. Also nearby is The Coffee Shack - let me know which is better-the lilikoi cheesecake or the Kona lime pie.
Banda is a friendly helpful host & if you clean up good like me, all your deposit is promptly returned.

Wonderful Haven!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Middle Ke’ei and look forward to a repeat visit. The cozy studio was easy to find, given the great directions, and perfect for us. The unit was very clean, comfortable, in good repair, bright, and deliciously quiet. We loved sitting on the lanai at different times of the day just to relish the beautiful view of Kealakekua Bay by daylight or the stars at night. The location was convenient for our day trips to Hilo, Volcano National Park, and South Point. We were minutes away from Pu’uhonua o Honaunau (Place of Refuge), Paleaku Gardens, “Two Step”, and a memorable walking path called “The 1871 Trail”. Hint: do the trail in the morning or evening. We often saw whales while walking so stop often and watch the bay!

Middle Ke’ei was our home away from home. The owner provided all the necessary linens, cookware, dishes, and utensils so you can just move in. A grill was available as well as a microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, toaster, and blender. Beach chairs, mats, and Styrofoam cooler were also ready for a day at the beach.

We found the offered books, especially those about the Big Island, especially helpful. Day planning was done on the lanai with a book or two from the shelf and a cup of Kona coffee. The owner was always prompt and helpful with tips, directions, and suggestions whenever we had questions. This is the place to stay if you want to have a true Hawaiian experience and, for a while, feel like you had a chance to ‘move’ to the Big Island. Aloha!
