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.

1st time in Hawaii

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.

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!
