SWIM WITH DOLPHINS ON THE KONA COAST

Captain Cook House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-8)

Hale Honu (Turtle House) is our place of refuge, and it can be yours as well. Situated on the Big Island of Hawaii just twenty miles south of Kailua-Kona, Hale Honu is surrounded by a lush tropical garden, and provides a breathtaking panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean, in a quiet and comfortable setting that is conducive to uplifting the light-of-heart and soothing the frazzled spirit.

From this location you are minutes from the lovely Ho'okena Beach State Park for sunbathing and swimming with dolphins, or the famous Place of Refuge National Historic Park, a preservation of ancient Hawaiian culture.

Also at the Honaunau Inlet you will snorkel with an endless variety of tropical fish and sea turtles. A ninety-minute drive south will bring you to Volcano National Park. Thirty minutes north are the shops and fine restaurants of Kailua.

Along the main highway north you will pass shops offering the island's best buys for Kona Coffee and Macadamia Nuts. A fruit stand offering organically grown fruits and vegetable is less than one mile north. The Kealia village store with necessities and movie rentals is a short walk to the south.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hale Honu is located in a quiet tropical garden setting 800 feet above sea level with a wonderful spectacular unobstructed panoramic view of the Pacific. It is just minutes from Hookena Beach State Park (where dolphin often play) to the South and Place of Refuge National Historic Park (also a great snorkeling spot) to the North. Our guests are thrilled by the location and the overall quality of their stay. Here is a sample of comments left in our guest book.I awoke again to the wonderful sound of birdsong. We loved eating on the beautiful lanai, and what an awesome view! So very peaceful. It was a delight to have an avocado fall at my feet – great fresh guacamole. ThanksMike and CherDenver, COThis is a wonderful house. We would not have had such an amazing time without it. Everything exceeded our expectations.John and Gayle and Juan and AnaLivermore, CA and Madrid SpainThank you for providing such a lovely home. It has been a perfect haven from which to launch our adventure. We had great parties on the lanai. So many fish and turtles in Honaunau, and saw dolphins every day. Can’t wait for next time.Mark and LaurieSan Francisco, CAThanks for the use of your big house. Access to the washer/dryer is great with the seven of us. Well equipped kitchen too! We loved all of the beaches, and enjoyed the free hula demo in Kona village.Tori and FamilyLouisville, COThanks to your books about Hawaii, I read about the places we planned to visit before going there. We really enjoyed the mangoes and papayas and flowers around the house. Thanks for the nice digs. Jim and Susan Monrovia, CAWe enjoyed your spacious home. I loved all of the flowers and green trees.Nancy and DeloresGlendale, CAIt has been wonderful here. The view, breeze, and sunsets can’t be beat. I’ll try to remember the beautiful ocean when I’m back in New Mexico.CarolAlbuquerque, NMWe had a lovely month in your wonderful home. Living in the country as we do, we especially liked the rural nature of your part of the island.Dick and JoanElizabeth, ILThanks for a great week in your home. We’d recommend kayaking across the bay to Captain Cook monument, even for inexperienced kayakers. Snorkeling is unbelievable near the monument. Our kids enjoyed the occasional visit out by the back fence by wild cows and pigs! Great place!Sue, Ron, Lauren and JessieAnchorage, AKIt was a very relaxing vacation that we hate to see come

1st time in Hawaii

  • 4 of 5
We spent a week at Hale Hona - grandparents, mom and dad and 2 girls 6 and 9. We had plenty of room to spread out - beds are comfortable - futon and hide-a-bed are best for children. Owners are great! We would consider this rental again - We loved the Captain Cook area.

Excellent space and privacy

  • 5 of 5
I was looking for a large home with good privacy, and this place fit the bill. The rooms are all spacious, and the covered deck is huge. The house is very well equipped, including 2 flat screen t.v.s, a well-stocked kitchen, ample towels, lots of books, etc. It felt like a real home. We plan to return.

I will echo another reviewer who said the pictures do not do this house justice. The living area was much larger than we expected. We comfortably slept 7 adults and never felt cramped. The master bedroom is also very nice! The picture also does not do it justice. Our teenage boys thoroughly enjoyed the lanai -- playing cards for hours and laughing their heads off. The beach gear (snorkels, reef shoes, mats) were an extra bonus! Thanks!

We were absolutely at home Hale Honu. Arriving after dark and pulling in off the highway, we located the key and entered Hale Honu. Light switches located, we were amazed at our luck in finding this place on the net. It was great with a beautiful view, spacious interior, and a most welcoming vibe. My husband and son collected avocados from the garden and we spent hours chatting on the lanai. Even the geckos were pleasant! It was such a welcome surprise to have travelled so far to find ourselves in such a lovely place. Thank you very much to Bob and Nancy for being able to accommodate us on the Big Island leg of our trip. I would highly recommend Hale Honu, it is truly a home. It has everything a family would need. I hope ours to follow us to Hale Honu enjoy it as much as we did. Fond memories, indeed!
