Captain Cook Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

This rustic wooden mountain cabin (''Much more than a cabin!'' - Julia) is situated next to a forest, in a secluded spot away from the main house, on a 3.5 acre farm. At an elevation of 2,000 feet, it avoids the summer heat at sea level (''Cool and peaceful..'' - Teri), yet is close to Kealakekua Bay (5 miles), kayaking, horse-riding, the Captain Cook Monument, Place of Refuge, and wonderful snorkeling. Ten minutes south is a small shopping center, with supermarket, Chinese restaurant, sandwich shop, etc. Three miles north is Kainaliu Town, with theater/cinema, pharmacy,Blue Ginger Gallery, clothing stores and other quaint places. Two of the finest restaurants in West Hawaii (Mi's Italian Bistro, and Keei Cafe) are less than 15 minutes away. Other coffee shops and restaurants are close by. From the cabin, a short walk across the property and along private paths through coffee fields leads you down a road that takes you through natural Hawaiian flora.

The 760 square feet cabin consists of a living-room, sleeping loft, bathroom, and well-equipped Hawaiian-style lanai kitchen with screens that look into the forest (''The forest is full of birdsong'' - Claudia & Chan). A redwood deck is situated under the kukui and macadamia nut trees, and has a charcoal barbecue (''An evening barbeque and wine on the deck - perfect'' - Barbara & John).

The farm has our three beloved and gentle dogs, two cats, sheep, chickens,and two guinea fowl. These are kept in an area at the upper south end of the farm, and the cabin is at the lower north end, some distance from the animals. From the cabin and its deck many of the sounds of the forest can be heard.

Guests will find fresh farm eggs, homemade bread, a fruit basket, Kona coffee, and other goodies to get them started.

100% agree with all the previous reviews. The bread, fruit and other fridge staples were a great touch. Friendly hosts and great for any couple or couple with baby (like us). Recommend this place for anyone wanting a private place to stay on the Kona coast.

What a treat this was! We were met by our gracious hosts, Jeffrey and Heide who showed us around, and treated us to fresh homemade bread, jam, fresh fruit and eggs, and a kitchen well-stocked with goodies. We found snorkel gear and boogie boards that we used. Our hosts provided us with great advice on things to see and do in the area. The fruit and macadamia nuts growing on the property were a real treat. Don't be deterred by the long steep road up to the place, this is a treasure! Mahalo Jeffrey and Heide, we can't wait to visit again!

Live just like a local

We've been to the Big Island a number of times and stayed in hotels, condos, and cottages, but always wanted to try staying in one of the houses we would see tucked away in the jungle off the main roads. This is exactly that, and it is perfect. It's about a mile up a dirt road in the jungle, so it is away from the fray, yet it is only a 15 minute drive to the conveniences of town. Everyone we met in the area was very friendly, including our hosts, of course. We stayed at a luxurious condo on the beach during the second half of our vacation, but to tell the truth, we missed the Koa Cabin the entire time we were there. We will definitely return for an entire week the next time we visit HI.

There's no comparison from staying in a home verses a hotel. And this place made it even more homey by having a large platter of fruit right from the property! Then there was the home made bread and eggs from their chickens! WOW!! The cabin is fully stocked with lots of towels and about everything you need, including shampoo and conditioner.
I think our favorite place was the gazebo. We had breakfast there every morning and dinner there every night except for the occasional dinner out. One day the neighbors horse was even looking over the fence. It was a nice surprise since I missed my horses and dogs. Heide and Jeffery were very nice and helpful. They gave us lots of information and gave us all the privacy we wanted.
It's only a short distance to some awesome snorkeling and restaurants. I would highly recommend The Koa Cabin for a great Hawaiian vacation!!

Owner's Response: Hi Diane and Sid - What a lovely review. Honestly, there is nothing that makes us happier than knowing that our guests felt comfortable, and that we added to their Hawaiian holiday. Much appreciation for all those comments.

This place was exceptional from the start to finish. What a wonderful unique experience and we hope to return again. Jeffrey and Heidi are better than perfect hosts. They make you feel like family. You almost don’t need to take anything; so much is provided for you. The starter bread, fresh fruit and coffee was the most amazing way to start the stay here. The bed was the best I have ever slept in and what a wonderful treat to go to sleep with the insects singing and then the rooster and other birds in the morning. We loved it. There really aren't the right words to describe Koa cabin, but we would highly recommend it. Thanks again to Jeffrey and Heidi for such a wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: Once again, we are very glad our guests liked the cabin so much. Thank you for commenting on the bed. We know it's comfortable, but since it is not a typical bed we were glad to see that you liked it so much. Thanks for staying!
