Captain Cook House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our clean and spacious, 1800-square-foot, three bedroom, two-bath home, is located in beautiful and tropical Kona Paradise/Captain Cook on the Big Island of Hawaii, just away from the tourist areas. The master loft is furnished with a queen bed, and en suite bathroom, and has the versatility of being able to be completely screened off with privacy drapes, or leave them open and awaken to the beautiful Pacific ocean through the floor to ceiling windows in the great room below. The other two bedrooms are located on the main floor, and both have queen beds. Feel like you are on top of the world with an amazing 180 degree coastline sunset view. Just a short 2 minute drive down the street is your own private pebble beach which on a busy day you might see a handful of other people. Most days you have the beach to yourself, where you can swim, snorkel, kayak, or scuba dive, or in the winter months, watch the whales.

We met at the ocean almost 40 years ago, and our lifelong dream has been to return again to where it all began. Though this is not the Indian Ocean, one look at our new home was all it took - we were home again! The views are spectacular, and the memories enchanting!

When we saw the photos of this house, we were pretty excited about our stay... And when we arrived, our high expectations were more than met! This house is gorgeous, comfortable, welcoming, and so very well-appointed. You will be pleasantly spoiled! We were three couples traveling together, and we all fit easily into this spacious house. Its location, as noted by other guests, really is ideal. We pretty much pinched ourselves every day because it was such a dream. To top it off, the owners are remarkably nice, warm yet professional - and they've included numerous thoughtful items throughout the house that just further enhance your stay. The house, and the owners, set the bar pleasantly high! Thanks for everything.

A Quiet, Peaceful Base for Exploring the Big Island

My wife and I spent a week here with our three kids and had a lovely time. The home is spotless, nicely furnished, and located in a quiet neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of Kona and the artificiality of the tourist-intensive condo spots further north. We enjoyed the views by day, the sound of the rain by night, and the absolute stillness, save for the birds, each morning. The location is perfect: day trips to the classically beautiful beaches and sites up north (Hapuna, Mauna Kea, Kiholo, Kahalu'u, Honaunau) and to the south and east (South Point, Green Sand Beach, Punalu'u Black Sand Beach, HI Volcanoes Natl Park, Kapoho Tide Pools in Puna). The kitchen has everything one might need to cook up a good meal, and the house itself is full of light-filled, airy spaces where one can curl up with a book or play a game of chess or strum a ukulele and still feel a part of the vast blue ocean and sky that fronts the property.

This whole experience was an incredible journey. We saw and did so much we may need a vacation after our vacation. We met some wonderful locals who will always be friends. Can't wait to come back, next time I won't wait so long. Thank you for the use of your home, it is beautiful and very relaxing.
Greetings - by name is Frankie. I was very delighted to have stayed in your home. It is beautiful and inviting. I was quite inspired as well, was able to write a few poems while I was here.
Mahalo.

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your BEAUTIFUL house!!! We had a wonderful time and were really amazed by the attention to detail when putting this place together. We CONGRATULATE you, you've done an amazing job! We will definitely recommend it to out friends. Everything we needed was here and then some.

We had a great time for our first trip to Hawaii. Nice house, beautiful views, great weather ..... now back to hot and humid Miami. We won't forget the "black" beaches and the volcanoes.

Even Nicer Than The Pictures

  • Submitted: Oct 7, 2011

We found the house to be even nicer than the pictures. Sitting on the lanai, high above the ocean was a great treat.
We did a lot of the things already mentioned and had a great time! I will mention a few highlights that might help future guests.
At Volcano National Park, we really enjoyed the 4 mile Kilauea Iki Trail. We went CCW and thought that was easiest on the climb up.
The kayaking and snorkeling at Kealekakua were definitely worth it. We rented everything from a "wildcat" crew right at the end of the road. The equipment was not all top notch, but everything worked well.
We went to Kiholo Bay (county, state?) beach a few miles north of the airport. A short drive down a gravel road. Truly a local's place. Saw a lot of turtles and very Darth Vadersque crabs.
We spent a rainy day at Holualoa Village (more or less east of Kailua). Some good galleries and shops. Had a great time with a ukulele maker. Had a wonderful lunch at the Holualoa Garden cafe.
Overall, we were very glad that we chose your home away from the commercial area. The flowers, the view, etc were great. We really enjoyed waking up to the birds singing. The kitchen and the sound system were also very well appointed and made it very easy to cook and enjoy our time at the house. You have done a wonderful job setting things up.

Great Place!

Great place! We really enjoyed our stay, and here are a few of our activities.
* National Volcanic Park
* Botanical Gardens
* Night snorkeling with Manta Rays
* Massages at "Hawaiian Island Retreat in Kapaau
* Lots of eating - Mi's Italian Bistro in Captain Cook was incredible, Big Jake's BBQ was also a favorite
Mostly we really liked lounging on the lanai, relaxing, having a drink or two, or three etc. It was definitely a much needed relaxing getaway.
