Recent Captain Cook reviews
Alone in the jungle, but close to everything!
"We were headed to the Big Island for a conference at Waikoloa Village, but we wanted a few days away from it all. Mike and Vika's place was the perfect ticket. It was an easy drive down into the woods and close enough to the grocery store and restaurants so we didn't feel too isolated. Sitting in the outside kitchen lanai in the mornings drinking chai tea was just what I needed to start the summer! The views are amazing and you truly feel alone out there on the side of a mountain, even though you are only 10 minutes drive from Captain Cook town. There was a beautiful wild turkey, I named him "Tom", who greeted us when we arrived and came by on the last day to say goodbye. The amenities covered all our needs. The only downside was that the cell access is very limited on the property and wi-fi only at the main house, this bothered my teenage daughters, but it didn't really bother me as I wanted to get away from it all while still having the ability to use electricity and have running water. You can always go up to the town to get access when you need it. You will see some bugs and lots of beautiful green geekos, but since I live on Oahu, they didn't really bother me. It was fun to just sit in the rocking chair and watch the geekos scurry back and forth along the roof. It rained a lot when we were there, but it didn't bother us much because the property has nice tin roofs that keep you dry. It was a lovely visit."

Warm, Friendly home away from home to experience the Big Island
"The house is wonderfully charming and close to great beaches for our 'keiki' (kids) aged 2 and 4. Its our second time back in two years and we wouldn't stay anywhere else. Very affordable in contrast to other places we looked into, and perfectly located to get a real feel for the island. Away, but not too far away from the hustle and bustle of Kailua-Kona, its the perfect location if you have a rental car. We had three generations under one roof and didn't step on each other's toes. Master bedroom is beautiful and the other two upper bedrooms are pleasantly spacious. Downstairs bedroom has loads of space, and was convenient for us since it also had the washer and dryer in it...
Its got all the amenities you would expect and a little bit of cottage charm. Highly recommended!"

"This was our fifth trip to the Big Island. We had previously stayed in resorts, hotels, and private properties in populated areas so we were looking for something a little different. This home is located in a smaller hillside community. The house sits in a tropical setting among tropical flora. We found it to be clean and have everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I was however disappointed as to how far the house was from Captain Cook. It may have a Captain Cook address but it is located about 10 minutes south of Hookena Beach Park. The beach that is within the community within a 10 minute walking distance it is a very nice, black pebble, private beach. I personally don't think I could of walked back up the hill in under an hour. The road within the community is very steep and zig-zags back and forth. we opted to drive down where we found was parking for two vehicles. It would be beneficial to have a 4x4 vehicle to navigate this community. Views from the lanai are beautiful. There was no lounge her to enjoy the view but there was a patio table and chairs. There are homes on either side of you here. The one was vacant the other was occupied but very quiet. Overall it is a nice home with a beautiful view in what we found to be a quiet community."
