Overview

About the property

1BR Oceanview Vacation Rental Captain Cook, Hawaii USA

Imagine sitting at a table or reclining in a lawn chair, perched on the mountain side above Kealakekua Bay, looking over the southern Kona coastline with an unobstructed view at the 1200 ft elevation. 'Wow', you say, 'the view is incredible!' A veritable slice of paradise, with ocean glistening to the west and mountain slopes to the south. Your soul is at peace. Red cardinals and yellow finches are scampering for food. A canoe race or fishing tournament just might be happening in the ocean near the coastline.

We have such a place - a one-bedroom vacation rental on our working macadamia nut and coffee farm. This is where the South Kona Macadamia Nut Company processes its succulent nut products. The grounds around the rental have citrus and banana trees, but the orchard of coffee and macadamia nut trees comprise the commercial aspect of the farm.

The rental is in the lower level of the main house; a screened-in porch has a kitchenette and futon sofa. Very private.

Open another screen door and the avocado green walls of a large bedroom, complete with a queen-sized bed and tropical furnishings, greet you. The bathroom has a large shower. With a separate entrance, your privacy is assured.

Located on Napo'opo'o Road in Captain Cook on the big island of Hawaii, you are minutes away from the famous Kealakekua Bay and other Hawaiian sites of interest. Swim, snorkel, or kayak; drive around the island; visit the national parks; or, just stay put and soak up the view! Shopping centers are close by as are fine restaurants.

About Meris or Brad

We moved to Hawaii in 1978 from Fairbanks, AK. We built the house and started clearing the land and planting macadamia nut trees. We started the vacation rental in 2006.

Why Meris or Brad chose Kona Coast

This property has a beautiful view of the southern coastline of Hawaii island. It is quiet but filled with sounds of birds. The rental is away from the craziness of Kailua-Kona village and a good place to relax. It is also within excessible distances of water activities ,etc.

What makes this apartment unique

You have an opportunity to learn about macadamia nuts and coffee cultivation.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

SK Vacation Rental offers you simple elegance, convenience and comfort--and did we mention the awesome view of Kealekekua Bay?! Experience life on a working mac nut farm (yum!) in the beautiful rural ambience of South Kona. Awaken to the dawn chorus of myriad birds, and fall asleep to the gentle pattter of Kona's famous misty rain (where all that green comes from!).

Your hosts Brad and Meris will do everything they can to make you comfortable. (And Brad can give you a lot of inside information on the history and sociology of South Kona). Co-hosts Blackie and Kai will be your best friends if you bring them the occasional biscuit.

While in South Kona be sure to: (1) visit Pu'uhonua O Honaunau (Place of Refuge) and snorkel at Two-Step (Honaunau Beach), (2) rent a Kayak from Ehu & Kai's on the bay (follow the signs) and paddle to the Capt. Cook monument where you can beach the boat and snorkel (and if you are lucky, the dolphins will come swim with YOU), and (3) have a down-home Hawaiian-style dinner at the Manago Hotel (we recommend the famous pork chops).

Amazing property! Unbelievable view.

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great place to stay in Kona. Super close to town but felt like a secluded retreat. Top of the world surounded by a macadamia farm. Well equipped kitchen and bathroom, ironing board, comfortable bed and lots of space. Owners are super nice but rarely do you see them. You feel as though you have the entire place to yourself. Will definitely try to stay here again!

Stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

Meris and Brad's place up on the hillside in Captain Cook was the exact place we had hoped for during our stay on the Kona side. They really took advantage of the stunning views but making he whole front/kitchen side of the unit a wall of screens/windows. This was particularly awesome when the bugs were out on the patio or when it was raining. The indoors had a total outdoor feel. Similar to camping but with all of the amenities desired for a comfortable stay. I could have sat and stared out at the coastline all day!

They were close to great little shops, restaurants, and cafes, which we loved. We prefer the local feel and that is exactly what this place caters to.

Not to mention, Meris was great! She cut us up some fresh white pineapple from her yard, which was probably the best pineapple I've ever had. They also have acres of macadamia nut trees and she gifted us a bag of fresh mac nuts. Awesome!!

The kitchen was well equipped as was the beach gear. Made spending the day on the beach super easy.

The bed was really comfortable. I might only suggest an extra pillow or 2 and an oscillating fan to really feels some breezes when there isn't much airflow otherwise. There was a fan in the unit but it didn't push out much air. Not really a complaint just a suggestion :)

We would DEFINITELY return!! This place was amazing! Loved every minute. I can't even imagine staying in the resort area or in Kona with all of the tourists. If you're looking for the best experience and that Hawaiian touch, this is it!!

Very nice property, accomodations, and owners.

  • 5 of 5

My 10 year old daughter and I stayed here for four nights. Fantastic view. Close to beaches and top notch snorkeling. Away from the crowds. It was a great launching point for day trips to the Volcanoes National Park (90 minute drive) and Waipio Valley (75 minute drive). Owners are very relaxed and accommodating. The place had everything we needed. Nice full-sized fridge. Functional hot plate. Dishes and all that stuff. Towels, snorkeling gear minus the fins. Supplies left over from past travelers were abundant. Kitchen and living area are located within the screen-enclosed patio overlooking the bay. Meris gave great tips on where to snorkel. Very nice spots just a few miles down the road: Two-Step, Kealakekua Bay, Captain Cook monument. It was a great stay especially for the price!

Third stay at SK

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay here and, as usual, we really enjoyed. The view is wonderful, the apartment is well stocked and very pleasant. The kitchen is tiny but completely adequate for preparing simple meals. We appreciate the calm, peaceful location. Meris and Brad are helpful and friendly. We'll be back!
