Captain Cook Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Located in South Kona, 23 miles south from Kona airport.

Very private setting with beautiful view of Kealakekua Bay, Honaunau Beach Park and coastline view.

Cottage is surrounded with tropical trees, palms, blooming flowers and coffee trees.

We built this cottage few years ago with lots of recycling materials, carefully sorted and crafted . We used old red wood water tank boards for trims, recycled windows and doors.

We chose oriental decor, using light colors on walls , dark woods and Japanese collectibles (kimonos, dishes, bowls and plates, tea cups e.t.c.)

Cottage has 1 bedroom with 2 windows, sealing fan and a closet.

Bathroom has a porcelain tile soaking tub and shower .

Full kitchen , large fridge/freezer. All cooking ware and utencils.

Hidebed sofa in the living room, TV/Direct TV/DVD player.

Private parking lot with motion light for late arrival.

Favorite of all our guests is a Tiki Bar with hammock and 'magic rope lights' in the evening.

You can relax there drinking morning coffee from our farm or evening cocktail after hot day at the beach!

Best snorkel , kayaking, swimming beaches right down below.

It would take 15 minutes the most and you are in the water!

We have snorkel sets, boogie boards, umbrella, towels, beach chairs and cooler for your convenience.

Local shops offering large variety of fresh produce, fish and everything you need for your meals.

Seasonal fruits such as papayas, bananas, pineapples, avocados and mangos can be picked on the farm.

If you choose to eat out, there are many different restaurants in close proximetries . Italian, Hawaiian, Pizzeria, organic bakery and lots of other tasty food places.

Farmers Market on Fridays and Sundays 2 miles from us. Many local vendors bring their produce, fruits, greens, macadamia nuts and crafts.

We, the owners are here to help and make your vacation pleasant and smooth.

You can always call and we answer your questions.

Aloha, Vika and Mike

Would stay again in a heartbeat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were very pleased with our week-long stay in the cottage. Mike and Vika were outstanding and went out of their way to make sure that we had all that we needed and that we were comfortable. They gave us tips on what to see and what to do in the area. They provided us with fresh fruit and eggs - what a treat! The cottage is secluded so you have privacy yet it is close to restaurants and a shopping area. The cottage is a good jumping off place to explore the island. The cottage was furnished with everything we needed and more. We could not be happier with our stay and have already recommended it to our friends and children. We will stay there if and when we return to the Big Island.

Hawaiian Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Vika and Mike are most gracious hosts, and the Honeymoon cottage is a cozy, comfortable and well equipped get-away for two. We enjoyed the seclusion and peacefulness of the cottage surrounded by lush vegetation and the sounds of birds. We stayed for 9 nights and enjoyed every moment. Fantastic snorkeling just minutes away. Close to Kona, yet far enough away to get away from the crowds. This is a great location to have as home base to explore the rest of the island. Everything supplied in the full kitchen, yet we ate out a little more than expected. Mike and Vika, we enjoyed the evening we had with Poke, wine and beer. We also enjoyed the tour of your farm, the fresh eggs and fruit. Highly recommended!! We hope to return some day. Mahalo ! Wendy and Wade

Beautiful setting and welcoming hosts

  • 5 of 5

Viktoriya's Kealakekua Bay vacation home is a great spot for exploring Hawaii's coffee country and western coast. Vika and Mike met us when we arrived and made sure we had everything we needed. They recommended some nearby attractions and invited us to stop by their home (just down the hill) if we had any requests or questions. The vacation home has views of the bay, a nice outdoor eating area, and friendly geckos. The landscaping is beautiful and Vika provided delicious fresh fruit and eggs. I'm glad we chose this spot to end our Hawaii vacation.

Serene and unique

  • 5 of 5

One of the highlights of our trip to Hawaii was staying in this unique and quiet cottage at Mike and Vika's farm.

We only wished we could have stayed longer than 3 days to experience more of the many amazing things the Big Island offers.

Mike gave us a tour of their immediate property (a personal botanical garden, as well as a working coffee and cocoa farm) which included notes on the history of this region, and his own personal experiences carving out this life on the side of a volcano.

Outstanding ocean views and tropical vegetation

  • 4 of 5

The cottage sits in a secluded plantation on the side of a mountain. Mike and Vika were wonderful hosts, explaining the plants, harvesting and processing, sharing the produce, and answering any questions we had. All of the gardens and landscaping were created by them.

The cottage is one of a kind using repurposed materials, an ecological feature we appreciate. We named the geckoes and cheered them on as they endeavored to eliminate the bugs that found their way into the house.

There are many beautiful, interesting birds to entertain you with their varied calls and antics, from the break of day 'til dark.

Your own private botanical garden and bird sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

Lovely location off of Napo'opo'o Road, but easy access to Keakalekua Bay, Place of Refuge, 2-step snorkelling, the Painted Church, a great cafe (Kona Coffee Shop & Bakery), etc. 5 minutes to small supermarket (Choice Mart).

The Honeymoon Cottage suited us perfectly, and Mike and Vika provided all of the little details to make living there easy, like kitchen spices, cooking oil, vinegar, etc. They are wonderful hosts, and you can have as much visiting - or not - as you want.

Short 25 minute drive into Kailua-Kona or 40 minutes to the airport. Perfect for easy access, but definitely far enough to feel like you're in a whole different world. Highly recommended.
