Imagine yourself entering your upcountry home situated on 1 acre of manicured property. A cool and private and peaceful sanctuary awaits you after a day of frolicking in the sun and surf with dolphins, whales and turtles.

This beautiful and extremely large home offers you 5 unique bedrooms, and 4.5 bathrooms. The Master Room is a large and spacious suite with an extra large private bathroom, Ocean Room and Bamboo Room share a full bath, the Garden Room has its own private bath as does the upstairs Loft Room.

Our home is perfectly setup for your next family reunion, or group of up to 10 guests due to it's large size and everything it has to offer. Everyone in your group can have their own space.

Take a refreshing dip in your 30ft swimming pool and crack open a cold drink from the refrigerator of your poolside cabana. Mosey over to the hot tub for a soak as you end your day with a Kona sunset and watch the stars come out at night. Ahhh.......dreams really do come true!

Delight in this very inviting, impeccably kept 3035 sq ft home that feels like a private, cozy lodge perched on the slopes of Mauna Loa, is set amid a lush tropical and private setting on 1 acre in the charming and rural neighborhood of Middle Ke'ei Road just 4 miles south of the town of Captain Cook

This is a relaxed and timeless countryside, untouched by large hotels, strip malls and traffic.....a Hawaii of days of old.....this is your neighborhood to enjoy!!

The house layout has generously sized rooms to enjoy like a great room, dining/sitting room, beautiful chef's kitchen with koa cabinets, tons of counter space and kitchen bar seating, a spacious lanai, 30 foot swimming pool and a spacious pool deck and cabana. There is also a BBQ area where you can cook up your favorite foods outside, while enjoying the pool and hot tub.

Perched above the Honaunau Valley at 1,000 feet above sea level, enjoy sunny days and cool nights sleeping, a beautiful ocean view and sunsets from the lanai, poolside, Master, Ocean Rooms and Kitchen. Your view from the home is a 360 degree green view! Not a rooftop in sight all the way down to the ocean!

You are only a short drive down quiet meandering roads to world-class snorkeling, diving, kayaking and swimming in some of the Big Island's most beautiful and pristine waters of Kealakekua Bay, Honaunau Bay, Hookena and Ke'ei Beaches.

When staying in our home we also provide all the gear you will need for the day at the beach. Beach chairs and mats, snorkel gear, coolers, water bottles, beach towels. No need to rent this stuff when it is all there for you to use.

About Tim and Abbie Clark - Owners

We both love to scuba dive and snorkel, and Hawaii has some of the best areas to do just that. Which is why we picked this house. We want other people around the world to enjoy what we have discovered here in Hawaii and enjoy it, and our home, as much as we do.

Tim and Abbie Clark - Owners purchased this house in 2001

Why Tim and Abbie Clark - Owners chose Kealakekua Bay

When we were looking for homes on the Big Island, this one stood out from the others we looked at. The location was perfect, not to far away from Kona and the beaches, but still has that country feel and the privacy that we were looking for.

We were getting tired of the hotel scene, too many people, too much noise and just not the privacy that we were looking for when we vacation. We wanted more of a home feel where we knew we could relax and recharge. And that is exactly what we found here. We know that you will feel the same way the minute you walk in.

The layout of the home and the size of the rooms just had the 'Wow' factor we were looking for. That's actually what we said as soon as we walked in was, 'WOW', so we knew it was for us. We know that you will feel the same way when you walk thru front entry door.

We feel at home here, after a long day exploring all that Hawaii has to offer. We love to scuba dive and snorkel, and we are just minutes away from some of the best diving and snorkel sites. And the when you come home there is plenty of room for everyone to relax and hang out, and the pool and hot tub are just the thing to have to make the end of the day great, while watching the sun set over the ocean, which is always so spectacular to see. Truly Paradise!!

What makes this house unique

The location of the home is perfect! Only a short drive (7-8 minutes) to wonderful pristine waters to snorkel, swim and kayak and in the same amount of time will find grocery, fruit stands, gas, and restaurants. Personally, we have enjoyed the peaceful quality of the neighborhood and home as a sanctuary, far from the busy-ness of the world yet convenient enough to hop in the car to pick up take-out, a movie or even an afternoon latte.

Well appointed, spacious, and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Ideal home base for our 3-generation family trip. The owners were not merely responsive, but actively ensuring that all was well and we were enjoying ourselves. The interior, pool area, and gardens exceeded expectations and we found ourselves unusually content to laze around around the house because of it. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would not hesitate to recommend it to others seeking a quiet place to call home while in Hawaii.

Capt. Cook Home away from home for 10 days!

  • 5 of 5

With adult children living in different states we get together for a week + of family time once a year. This time there was 9 of us that stayed in this house---it was very comfortable and 'homey'. The pictures are accurate, the owners are great to work with, the rooms are much larger than we expected. We truly did feel like this was our home while we were there--we had a puzzle laying out on the table for everyone to work on, while some were in the pool others in the hot tub or the covered outside room. In the mornings the early risers could get up and go for a walk without waking up the 'late' ones. The house is in a jungle like setting so there are many evening noices from the critters outside--the neighbors rooster wakes up around 5:00 am! :-) In a nutshell.....it was simply wonderful and I would highly recommend renting this house for your next family vacation.

Private, spacious comfort

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for a family reunion or for accommodating many persons. Four of the five bedrooms are private and the loft though not sound proof is still away from the other rooms. The on line pictures are accurate but in reality we were astonished at how spacious the home really is. The grounds also are spacious and well cared for as is the pool and hot tub. The kitchen had everything anyone could use and we made use of the outside grill as well. We were three couples and it was perfect for us. It is south of the airport by about 40 minutes and the highway can be congested at times. Good snorkeling is just a few minutes away. We highly recommend this home.

Hawaiian Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

After renting a house run by a company on Oahu it's so nice to rent a vacation "home" on the big island. Nice artwork, decent furnishing's inside and out and all the extra's you might need like first aid items, hair dryers, tons of cookware and lots of beach towels and snorkeling equipment. The owners were wonderful to deal with throughout the rental process returning my damage deposit promptly after departure. There were eight of us including three kids that often times begged us to go back to the house to swim in the pool and quit our sightseeing! The brand new hot tub was a huge plus as well. The view of the sunset was fabulous and the gardens surrounding the property were amazing as well as the total privacy. The housekeeper couple that maintain it work very hard to keep this whole property impeccable and do a great job of it. Best rental property i have ever rented but i am afraid i set the bar too high with this one because I am now planning a trip to Florida and nothing even compares!

Spacious and private

  • 4 of 5

We recently had the pleasure of spending a week at this spacious property. Tucked away in a tropical location, this house was well equipped and was close to some great sightseeing spots on the big island. We spent a lot of time enjoying the private pool and hot tub and relaxing on the lanai. Nestled amongst beautiful trees and flowers, this property provided an opportunity to get away from it all.

Absolutely Lovely!!!

  • 5 of 5

Ours was a small family renunion between Australia and Texas and this was our first time yo rent a vacation home and did we pick a wonderful place to stay!! The house was modern, clean and spacious but still cozy. We enjoyed sitting out on the lanai with a glass of wine, especially at sunset. We were 5 adults and 1 toddler and there was more than enough room for all of us! After a long day out sightseeing/snorkeling/hiking, it was great to come back to the house, we felt very at home and relaxed. The view from the lanai was beautiful, lush foliage, colorful birds and the view down to the ocean was stunning. The pool area was great, with new cabana furniture to lounge on. So much space to spread out, our sons barbecued twice and we also used the snorkeling equipment provided on our trips to the beach! We didn't want for anything, everything was there. We wish we could have stayed another week!!
