Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 5 - 7 nights


About the property

1BR 1BA Cottage with a fantastic view

This private cottage is perfect for honeymooners, or anyone looking to escape the typical hotel scene. A complete home with lanai, kitchen, living and dining areas, full bath, and basic amenities will be your very own escape to paradise while still enjoying the accommodations necessary for any vacation. Not to mention your own private hot tub on the open lanai, a romantic scene for enjoying the pace and quiet and stargazing at night.

10/2015 We made several updates to the guesthouse including: sliding glass windows over kitchen sink, new bathroom tile, toilet, window screen, and paint in the bathroom, fixed a small roof leak, added a screen door on the front entrance, and put in a new electric cooktop. Our next project will be to repaint the living room!

Please note that Hawaii is slightly different from the mainland USA in that the state/people has their own sets of traditions, values, norms, and ways of life. Many things we take for granted in the mainland are not quite the same here in Hawaii. Sometimes variables like utilities, smells, noise, neighbors, cars, animal life, repair-times, etc just cannot be managed in the same manner as in other parts of the world. While we do our very best to insure a delightful and 100% positive vacation, please understand that some of reasons we love living and vacationing in Kona can occasionally be a bit inconvenient. Thank you for understanding. We look forward to hosting you!

Great little cottage in an out of the way spot. Great views.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was great and had all necessary amenities. The hot tub was very relaxing and had great views of the ocean. The location was a great spot for anyone vacationing on the west side of the island.

Wonderfully private, affordable property!

  • 5 of 5

We truly were very fortunate to find this wonderful place and it's awesome owners. Property was exactly as described, with spectacular views and perfect amenities. We loved to come back to "our cottage" after a day of property hunting, and luxuriate in the Jacuzzi.

If it wasn't for finding this vacation rental on VRBO and meeting these wonderful people, we may not have found our own "perfect piece of paradise".

We definitely hope to stay there again within the next several months as we plant our roots on the Big Island.

Fantastic View Ohia House

  • 5 of 5

House located on 11 acres on the side of a hill overlooking the ocean in Captain Cook, Hi. The view is outstanding. Very secluded and quiet. Pick fruit (trangeries, oranges, lemons, bananas) throughout the property. Watch geckos stick to the top of the lani. Wild turkeys roost in trees. This house is well supplied with all you would need to be comfortable during your stay. The bed is very comfortable. This is a great spot for couples but not child friendly due to the railing in once section of the lani. We would definitely stay here again on our next vacation!

Second visit to Ohia Hale as good as first

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location for spectacular views with hot tub and wonderful privacy in a traditional Hawaii cottage. And getting there is half the fun. Amenities are basic but quite adequate. My wife and I spent a week here in early January 2017 and loved every minute, many of which were spent in the hot tub day and night. Weather can be cool (mid 60s) in the am until sun comes above trees but warms quickly to upper 70s and low 80s by mid morning. Be prepared to hear distant farms animals from farm in valley below (rooster, cows) which is fairly common in many areas of Capt Cook and Hononau. Nearby super market and small restaurants within 2 miles of Ohia Hale makes for easy shopping and average food quality dining. We did eat at Loko Wraps twice so that gets on the list. Ohia Hale is best for couples without kids looking for privacy.

Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

As a second time around, we were not surprised, we knew what to expect. In brief you rent this house for the incredible views from the lanai, quiet setting away from the hustle but close to the best snorkelling. It is not luxurious and you should not expect above what is promised. Pictures represent well what you get. The house is clean as much as it can be in a tropical setting. Communication with the owner is swift and straightforward.

I would recommend the property for the above reasons.

Few recommendations- it will be nice to have some updates to cutlery, utensils, shower curtain and mattress.
