Additional GUEST BOOK reviews under Owner Info.

The pictures don't do it justice, our guests say. Nicely surprised when they walk in.

This property is an ideal couple getaway for any occasion. It is secluded on an old coffee plantation above Kealakekua Bay, with a dramatic sweeping ocean view of the coastline to the south. Kealakekua Bay is renowned for its terrific marine life.

You can kayak, hike, or horseback ride to the Captain Cook Monument on beautiful Kealakekua Bay. Escape the noise and traffic of Kona, stay at The Captain's Suite located just a six minute drive from Kealakekua Bay also located in the historic and rural agricultural district of Captain Cook.

This property located above Kealakekua Bay and the Place of Refuge is a great place from which to explore the rest of the Island and then return home to your own private quiet hideaway. Snorkel Kealakekua Bay, visit the Place of Refuge State Park, take a day trip to Volcanoes National Park and the East side of the Island, visit the rain forest, beautiful Waipio Valley and a whole lot more.

The many tropical flowers, trees, and fruits on the property offer a delight to the nature lover.

The tropical art deco style of the 'Captains Suite' is pleasing to our guests. It is situated privately just north of the main house, and it also has a 180-degree sweeping ocean view.

The Captain's Suite has private parking close to its own double-door entry, which opens to raja slate floors throughout.

Other special features include granite counter tops, a full bath with double sinks, a double walk-in shower, and two person jetted tub, which is privately situated to enjoy swaying bamboo, nature and coastline view.

Additional amenities include cooking facilities, a dishwasher, a refrigerator, filtered water, a King-size bed, an kitchen island, a lounge area, free laundry facilities (separate from the main house, soap & softener incl.), ironing board & iron, bath robes, (Bring your own slippers), paper towels, TP, baggies, wax paper, foil, coffee filters, salt & pepper & sugar.

Beach towels, mats, beach chairs and coolers provided. These accommodations are equipped with everything you'll need for a comfortable stay, including abundant storage, a coffee grinder, cable TV, a DVD, and a CD player. Entry is at ground level with no steps. However, the rental is not otherwise handicapped equipped.

This is a smoke-free environment for your enjoyment. Sorry, no pets.

About Nancy

We purchased this property in 1988. We built the main house and carport.

In 2000 we enclosed the garage and added two units to our 1 acre property.

We loved the large stand of bamboo, so it was a focal point in the design of the jetted tub for the Captain's Suite.

To achieve the feel of the outside we built large screened lanai's and double sliders and windows to let in light and the views of water, flora and fauna. However always with privacy in mind. Each unit has its own parking area close to the front door.

Nancy purchased this apartment in 1988

Why Nancy chose Kona Coast

This property is in the beautiful coffee belt of Hawaii. Green and lush with beautiful

ocean views. We love the tropical plants and animal life here. Birds and gecko's alike love the papaya and bananas. Turkeys and pigs roam the macadamia orchids beside us, as well and below us. We also have a small shopping center that provides a grocery store, hardware store and post office just up to the hwy and to the North.

We don't get any hwy noise unless a siren occasionally, from police or ambulance.

We love the rural-ness of the location, yet the convenience of a grocery store and hardware store.

What makes this apartment unique

It's only a 15 min. drive to Keauhou Shopping Center where you'll find restaurants, grocery store, shops and movie theater.

Also only about 12 min. down to Two Step for snorkeling and kayaking.

Many coffee farms and macadamia farms to visit and a must visit is the Japanese

living coffee farm. Several very good restaurants here in the area as well as fresh fish as the local market and fish market. Sundays is the local outdoor market just down the road.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This evening marks our 12th sunset on the islands--5 on Big and 7 in Kaua'i. It is hard to imagine a more opportune location for a sunset than this, Last evening - the Winter's Solstice - the sun fell into the Pacific on a clear horizon illuminating a clouded band above, with a fiery glow that would make Pele proud. The sun this evening looks to promise another dazzling show. Tomorrow we return to Hilo and then begin our journey home to Atlantic Canada, the close of a wonderful vacation that included swimming with sea turtles and cruising the Napal'i coast. Much to remember including this fine suite and lanai. The gecko's were a treat to watch scamper about and munch on insects out by the barbecue light. We're very happy with this location, as it proved to be both a great launch point for west-side dy trips and for ond day off doing absolutely nothing in particular. Mahalo! Bill & Gail

The property is amazing...perfect in almost every way

  • 5 of 5

We loved it..its basically your own small hideaway on a beautiful property with spectacular views.. why would anyone want to pay 2x as much at a hotel and have to be around the chaos of tourists and everything else? There are so many sites to see on this island and almost none of them are at the local hotels _You will find all your beach gear including snorkeling,boogie boards,chairs, umbrellas, coolers and towels waiting for u..just load up and head out and explore the island.. our next trip to Kona we will definitely come back and stay here! Andy and Caroline

A breathtaking view!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great stay in a perfect location for solitude and access to all attractions when venturing out. The tropical birds are a wonderful bonus . Bring your binoculars. The extras like beach and snorkel gear are a wonderful plus. Kitchen facilities are limited but adequate. All together this is a true paradise.

Beautiful, Relaxing, and Private

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad that we found the House of Refuge. We stayed for two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our time. Nancy and Greg are wonderful hosts. The views of the Kona coast and the coffee farms are amazing. The house is well stocked and close to snorkeling at Two Step, the Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Park, and the Arch City trail for hiking. We would definitely return.

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful views and a quiet and peaceful location. Since it is about 1000 feet above the coast it is cooler. Also, being south of Kona, it is about an hour closer drive to Volcanoes National Park. We enjoyed exploring beaches around Captain Cook and it was an easy drive to the more popular ones in Kona and S. Kohala. The accommodations were perfect for a couple; a modern look with all that we needed. The lanai is beautiful with a great view and complete privacy. Nancy and Greg are very knowledgeable of the area. We particularly liked that beach gear (chairs, coolers, boogy boards, snorkels and flippers) was provided. The market at the top of the hill was completely adequate and the kitchen facilities, plus the bbq grill, meant we could cook at home as much as we wanted.
