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).

Overbearing landlord ... not so private

  • 2 of 5

The apartment was nice, clean, and well equipt but being on the lower level of the owner's house was just not the prime situation for my wife and I. When we arrived the landlord felt it necessary to verbally walk us through all the "rules" of the rental. It seemed overbearing. The landlord's deck over looks the apartment's patio so it felt like at any point they could be watching you with out you knowing. In fact, the landlord came down to visit us on both occasions that we did sit out on the patio to enjoy the view. One morning I burnt some toast and the fire alarm went off. The landlord arrived less than a minute later. Instead of asking if things were ok her attitude implied my wife and I were doing something wrong. The landlord finished the conversation with a snarky comment about how hard it rained the previous night and she hoped we shut the windows so not to make a mess of her apartment. Overall, it felt like we were staying with a great-aunt we only see once a decade who doesn't want anything touched in their house and afraid the guests will inevitably break something.

This is not how I want to feel when I am on vacation.

Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The view was amazing. We could see so much of the island while sitting at the kitchen table. It was really quiet there, and we could smell the flowers in the air every day. We woke up to the sounds of the local birds every morning.

The unit was very well stocked. It had all the kitchenware we needed to cook and eat there. There were a lot of sauces and condiments in the fridge. It also had beach supplies, including chairs, sunscreen, after-sun, snorkeling gear, etc.

Our hosts were very friendly. Besides the good conversation, they let us sample some of the fruits of the farm.

Definitely recommend!

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!
