Recent Captain Cook reviews

  • Room for everyone!

    "What a wonderful place to spend time with our adult children and their significant others. The home is beautiful with a great, well equipped kitchen and nice swimming pool. The view of the ocean included whale sightings, the location is quiet but close to activities and Kona, and at night the scent of jasmine and angel trumpet was incredible!"

  • Million Dollar Views, Amazing Property

    "We rented Kai Ea based for the view but the photos of this property do not do it justice. It is an impeccably decorated, spotless, comfortable home with amazing drop dead gorgeous views. No small detail was overlooked, even the landscaping was perfect. We enjoyed using the well equipped kitchen and the outdoor shower. We loved sitting on the lanai to watch sunrise/sunsets. We loved the mountain goats that graze below the property, so cute. We even had a hurricane pass near the Big Island and we were rained in for a day but it was no problem as it was a pleasure to relax and enjoy the home. The owner was easy to work with and very helpful. I have rented many vacation properties over the years and this house is by far the BEST rental I have ever done. We have crazy stressful jobs and Kai Ea was the perfect place to escape, unwind and let go. Already looking forward to renting it again."

  • Beautiful house and convenient location

    "The house is beautiful, spacious, and has everything you need; the large garden is a wonder for kids to explore. We were only 6, but 10 people can be very comfortable here. The kitchen had everything we needed, including a blender for making tasty smoothies. We benefited from the snorkel gear, towels, boogie board, coolers, and even clothed for cooler weather (which you'll need if you go to Mauna Kea). We stayed 7 days and were sad to leave. Marci and Chuck were very helpful to us when we needed them, plus they had fruit and coffee for us on arrival. I liked the closeness to Honaunau for picnic and sunset and 2 step for snorkeling. The house is very close to a wonderful fruit stand (at mile 103-104 on hwy 11), and if you want to explore Kohala and the south part of the island, all from one location, this will be a great place to stay."

  • Great spot, Fantastic Host!

    "My wife and I stayed here for four days as part of our honeymoon to the Big Island. LOCATION: Near Captain Cook and important amenities very close by like grocery store, gas, kayak rentals, breakfast, other nice food spots, coffee farms, beach, amazing snorkeling. Conveniences nearby but you feel like you are away from the heavily touristed Kailua-Kona, which is a 20-25 minute drive away. SETTING: Five acre property with a few buildings on it, within a secure gated entrance. The huge and gorgeous main house is a separate building from this rental property, which is a smaller, not super fancy but in a very quaint, comfortable and peaceful setting. This rental is private from the other buildings on the property. Stunning view from the lanai. Waking up to birds, roosters and sipping coffee on lanai while watching sunrise. Weather was always comfortable and we spent both mornings and evenings in shorts and t-shirt typically. Mango, papaya, citrus, bananas, MAC nut tree behind house (an abundance of nuts you can crack and eat), avocado, pineapple...all available for picking. AMENITIES: the usual stuff plus snorkeling gear, propane mini BBQ with a nice grill, washer/dryer, chairs, beach umbrella, fully stocked kitchen appliances. However, no high quality coffee making supplies, so if you're a coffee connoisseur you may want to bring your own stuff (for instance: only a blade grinder and Mr Coffee drip is available). We like burr grinder and French press... MANAGER: Candi is a darling of a person and shares the Aloha generously. Available and affable but not overbearing. Lives nearby. Went the extra mile for us on a couple occasions. Also has 100% Kona coffee for sale which was grown on the estate. I would recommend this rental to a friend."
