Hale Honu (Turtle House) is our Big Island ocean view rental and is our place of refuge. We would like to share this top Hawaiian vacation area with you. Situated on the Big Island of Hawaii just twenty miles south of Kailua-Kona, Hale Honu is surrounded by a lush tropical garden, and provides a breathtaking panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean, in a quiet and comfortable setting that is conducive to uplifting the light-of-heart and soothing the frazzled spirit.
From this location you are minutes from the lovely Ho'okena Beach State Park for a beach vacation of sunbathing and swimming with dolphins, or visiting the famous Place of Refuge National Historic Park, a preservation of ancient Hawaiian culture.
Also at the Honaunau Inlet you will snorkel with an endless variety of tropical fish and sea turtles. A ninety-minute drive south will bring you to Volcano National Park. Thirty minutes north are the shops and fine restaurants of Kailua.
Along the main highway north you will pass shops offering the island's best buys for Kona Coffee and Macadamia Nuts. A fruit stand offering organically grown fruits and vegetable is less than one mile north. The Kealia village store with necessities and movie rentals is a short walk to the south.

Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook: Hawaii is wonderful place to visit and a top vacation destination. The Big Island is, we think, the best of all the islands. The volcano is spectacular, we have two mountains soaring to almost 14,000 feet, it offers world class sport fishing, beautiful beaches, a rich history, the best snorkeling and most of all for our location, a grand place to just go relax and get away from the hubbub of life.
