Beautiful place to be

  • 5 of 5
Marci and Chuck very friendly welcomed us at their ohana. In our apartment we found a big bowl full of fresh fruits from their own garden. They also know everything about the island and gave us many useful tips for snorkeling, hiking, great restaurants, and places to visit.

We had a phantastic 16-days holidays at this cozy and very nicely decorated place. It is, as you can see on the pictures, very comfortable, spacious, and has everything you need.
Marci and Chuck even provided for our snorkeling gears!
If we can come back to the Big Island we will love to come back to this place!

Cute, clean, and conveniently situated

  • 5 of 5
What can we say about Marci and Chuck and the accommodation they so generously shared with us?
We gave ourselves a week to explore the south half of the island and Marci and Chuck’s location was perfect for us. Cute, clean, and conveniently situated on a quiet cul de sac on the ground floor of a private house, it is ideal for a couple who wants to explore the area. There were a few places we considered but Chuck’s fast and friendly replies to our queries decided it for us. The location gave us excellent access to Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park. Besides the knowledge provided by exploring the park and its contents it led to a wonderful hike along the coastline cliffs, encountering a herd of wild goats and observing crashing waves that definitely gave us a thrill. We returned to the same area a few times and snorkeled a short distance away at Two Step which was recommended in our guide book and by Marci. A definite highlight was renting a kayak from a friendly group of native Hawaiians and paddling to the Captain Cook monument to snorkel in the clear waters before kayaking back. We took a few trips to explore around the southern coast between Captain Cook and Hilo and really enjoyed the crashing waves at South Point, the most southern point in the United States. Further along route 11 was Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park with the currently active Kilauea. The trip to the volcano traverses vast miles of black volcanic rock and experiencing the changing landscape as nature begins to take root and rebuild itself was awe inspiring. As our trip was in early September just after the hurricane that pounded the southeast side of the island, our excursion provided a firsthand view of the devastation that wind, rain and water can inflict upon the majestic nature on land that took decades to grow. Huge trees were toppled like bowling pins! Snorkeling in the tide pools in Puna was unanimously agreed to be a highlight. There was so much to take in and enjoy it is impossible to commit it all to a short paragraph. Marci and Chuck are welcoming and genuinely warm individuals. They are super friendly and helpful and not only love having guests but are real animal lovers as well. Be aware that your Hawaiian experience at their place will include many sounds of nature and the customary morning greeting by the territorial roosters. Surrender yourself to the experience and ENJOY. We would definitely return!

cozy tropical studio

  • 5 of 5
Marci and Chuck made us feel very welcome and have done an amazing job creating a cozy vacation home. The studio offered great amenities, especially for people who plan on staying for more than just a couple of nights and who plan on using the kitchen. This is especially great since there are limited dining options in the immediate vicinity - at least for dinner. Lots of lunch / brunch places and cafes just up the road. It is a short (15 to 20 minute) drive to the center of Kailua Kona. It is very close to some great island sites, including two-step beach for snorkeling and historical Hawaiin sites. I would recommend this place to any person or couple looking to stay on Big Island.

Kona Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in this beautifully appointed studio suite! The location was great--minutes away from the best snorkeling and the town of Kona while up high enough to enjoy the views and cool breezes. The suite had everything from a French press for our morning Kona coffee to a bookshelf full of interesting reading for relaxing down time. Having a washer and dryer was great! The owners, Marci and Chuck, were helpful and friendly. We would definitely recommend this rental property!

Great memories in Captain Cook!

  • 4 of 5
Thank you Marci and Chuck for the wonderful memories created in Hawaii! I used the kitchen twice a day for breakfast and dinner. My favorite thing about their home is to wake up in the morning to the chickens, especially the hen and chickies, peeping by as they went by window and off for the day. Chickens may be gone at this point, new dog. The bed was very comfortable, and was nice after a long day of adventure. Best part is the washer and dryer, don't have to leave to do wash. Snorkel gear, chairs, bikes, etc, are available for use. Marci & Chuck have a gift of showing all that Hawaii has to offer.

Perfect blend of hospitality and proximity to Kona and to the dolphins!

  • 5 of 5
We certainly didn't imagine that when we rented a vacation rental we would also meet such great people who treated us like family. Marci and Chuck treated us warmly from the moment we arrived, made us feel welcomed, and seemed like our personal local tour guides. The Ohana that we rented from them was inviting (with a big bowl of seasonal fruit on the table for us) and was recently updated with amenities fit for the Big Island traveler. We had plenty of space for the two of us in the studio-style apartment, were able to cook our own full meals with perfectly stocked kitchen, relax on patio furniture on the grass, and do some laundry in between. Any time that we had questions or needed advice on travels, we could always ask our hosts, but they also left us plenty of space and privacy for relaxing alone in our rental. Would we go back again? Without a question! In fact, we are trying to convince all of our friends to go to the Big Island just to stay with these fine hosts! Thanks again for hosting us, Chuck and Marci!
