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).

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!

A lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Brad and Meris' place. (We're a middle-aged couple, spent 3 nights here while traveling around the big island.)

We loved the screened-in kitchen/dining area, with its sweeping views down the Hawaiian coastline. Since they're fairly high up, not only were the views spectacular, but it was pleasantly not-too-hot the whole time we were there. Quiet, tranquil, relaxing.

Brad and Meris are friendly people. They're super helpful with advice about interesting things to see in the area that you'd probably never hear about if you weren't local. And if you stay without asking Brad to show you how the macadamia nut-cracking machines work, you're really missing out!

Quiet, peaceful, clean, and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place for our peaceful getaway and you can't ask for better hosts. The view of the bay is amazing and it's really a treat to be lulled to sleep at night by nature's sounds. In the morning we're gently woken up by the chirping of the birds and the refreshing ocean breeze. This place is highly recommended!

Very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this lovely little place with awesome views over the ocean. The outdoor area was lovely for relaxing and the screened lanai made for a very tropical feel. Inside the bed was very comfortable and every amenity had been thought of from snorkelling gear and beach towels to guide books and sunscreen. Meris and Brad were very friendly and accommodating of our late arrival. It is ideally located for spending time at Kealakekua Bay - an absolute must for snorkelling (albeit a little crowded) and Pu'uhonau o Honaunau National Historic Monument (Place of Refuge). The visiting geckos were fantastic!!! We would stay again :)
