A home away from home
"We spent four glorious weeks in Jill's darling, cute, well appointed cottage that had everything we wanted. One exception was the minimal Satellite TV options. We would have preferred a full cable set up/programming. Not a huge deal. The bedrooms were lovely. There were small AC units in there to cool them before sleeping. The yard was full of a huge variety of wonderful Hawaiian fruit. It was so much fun picking our fruit from the trees as needed. There is a lovely outdoor shower that was a pleasure for both washing off sand and cooling down. Jill and James were fun and accommodating. We are swimmers and spent most days in one of the two glorious bays nearby. We swam with the Spinner dolphin many times. Each time felt like a blessing. Truly amazing! In short we loved every minute and are hard at work figuring out how to return in 2015. You will not be disappointed, but you will be spoiled. Stay at your own risk! :)"

"Clean, comfortable studio apartment in more rural setting, away from the big resorts. Enjoyed watching all of the birds and beautiful sunsets over the ocean from the lanai. Appreciated all of the reference/travel books and pamphlets on the bookshelf."

"We split our trip between the Mauna Lani Hotel and Bungalows (2 nights) and this property. The bungalows were nice, but staying in this well appointed, well kept, super clean home in Captain Cook is a way different and way better way to experience the island.
The place is immaculately maintained with super nice features. Cooking dinner on the awesome commercial range and then having family dinner on the lanai watching the sunset made our trip truly memorable. The house is comfortable (we stayed in the ohana) and with two adults and two teenagers the place gave us room to spread out - something that is hard to do sometimes in a hotel.
Dan is a super fast and effective communicator and getting checked in and settled is much less painful than what you have to deal with at a hotel.
The house is very near (definitely walkable) Kealakekua Bay so it is no big deal to run down early and swim/snorkel with spinner dolphins and really enjoy the place. A short drive away is the excellent snorkeling spot "two step" that is worth going to for sure. We rented surfboards about five minutes away in South Kona (Kona Boys - they do kayaks, snorkel gear too) so it was a super convenient way to get geared up for almost any activity without paying huge bucks.
We had an a memorable trip and hope we can return to stay here again soon!"

"it is our second stay in this condo and just like the first time, it was amazing. We felt very welcome by Dawn and Robert and their dogs are so nice!
The condo in itself is very nice, well kept and very comfortable whether you have a family or you are a couple.
The view is fantastic and it is so quiet.
The position of the condo on the island is very good as you have easy access to all the touristy things to do and also some very nice snorkelling spot that you don't get as easily to the North of Kona.
We are looking forward to coming back!"
