Captain Cook bed and breakfast description

Rainbow Plantation B&B is located on 3.5 Acres of tropical farmland, south of Kailua-Kona near Captain Cook and Kealakekua Bay. On our quiet peaceful farm you are surrounded by fruit trees, parrots and peacocks ! We offer NEWLY RENOVATED economy, standard and superior rooms from $89 to $129 per night plus tax. A nice large tropical breakfast is included, as well as free Wi-Fi. Rooms sleep 2 to 6 people. If more than 2 guests in the room, each additional is $15.

There is a large common kitchen where you can cook your own meals. A supermarket is nearby.

Located off the highway in beautiful Kealakekua, we are close to the best hiking trail, and the best snorkeling and kayaking in west Hawaii ! 5-30 minutes to beaches and swimming.
Also convenient to explore other areas on this island such as the Volcano National park (1.5 hours), Mauna Kea mountain (1.5 hours)
Waimea (1 hour), Hilo (2 hours).

I now also offer VERY CHEAP car rentals through Budget. Great prices, ask for a quote.

We also arrange tours such as Manta Ray and dolphin snorkeling. Let us book for you so you can concentrate on having fun !
