Recent Captain Cook reviews

  • Awesome place!!

    "We just returned from staying at Harry's place in Captain Cook. We love it! The location was great - close to things we wanted to do, great beaches but removed enough to allow us to fully relax. Loved having a blender to make smoothies with fresh fruit in AM, the snorkeling gear, beach chairs, towel - all came in handy. Harry made the place feel so warm and welcoming with flowers and fresh fruit. Highly recommend this place to anyone and will plan on returning if we make it to the Big Island again"

  • Ein Traumhaus - just awesome

    "Leider geht ein Traumurlaub in einem tollen Haus auch einmal zu Ende. Unsere fünfköpfige Familie hat sich im Haus ubd auf Big Island sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt. Daran konnte auch Hurricane Iselle nichts ändern, der dann doch Gott sei Dank hier kaum zu spüren war. Positiv: 1. Der Platz, 4 Schlafzimmer, 3 Bäder, ein großes Wohnzimmer, die offene Küche, es gab genügend Raum, damit sich jeder auch mal zurück ziehen konnte. 2. Die Ausstattung, es war alles da, was man brauchte, angefangen von der Kücheneinrichtung, dem großen Gasgrill, fluffige Badetücher für Dusche und Strand, mehrere komplette Schnorchelausrüstungen, tollen Strandstühlen, einer großen Kühlbox, Wasch- und Putzmittel, Bücher, Infomaterial zur Insel, DVDs, CDs... 3. Sauberkeit, alles war pikobello (auch wenn noch ein Kritikpunkt kommt) 4. Die Lage, atemberaubend die Aussicht von der Lanai aufs Meer, atemberaubend auch die "Hauptstraße" von Kona Paradise mit gefühlten 100% Steigung. Der nächste Strand in Hoonakau war 20 Minuten entfernt und ist noch relativ ursprünglich. Zum Volcano National Park sind es, aufgrund des Tempolimits rund anderthalb Stunden, zum Flughafen Kona eine Stunde, nach Kona selbst 45 Minuten (Big Island ist halt groß). Tipp: Echtes Shaved Ice und leckeres Fleisch für den Grill gibt es im Kealia Ranch Shop, auf dem Weg vom bzw. zum Strand. Nicht ganz so positiv: neben den possierlichen Geckos hatten wir leider auch noch andere, nicht ganz so schöne Mitbewohner. Nach dem Angebot an Sprays und Fallen gegen Kakerlaken in den Supermärkten zu urteilen, ist das aber kein Problem, was nur dieses Haus betrifft. Die große Lanai konnten wir wegen der Mücken leider auch nicht genießen. And now a short summary of my review in english: + the space, enough room for the 5 of us + all the things you need are there, kitchen stuff, barbecue, snorkel gear, towels and beach chairs and and and, everything in excellent condition. + everything clean + the awesome sorrounding in Kona Paradise, a unique beach quite near, we love the Shaved Ice at the Kealiio Ranch - a little problem with cockroaches and mosquitos, but that seemed to be a problem for the whole island"

  • Excellent for Divers and Snorkelers!

    "My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights as part of a 3-1/2 week xmas vacation. Cottage is clean and comfortable with all the kitchen basics. There is a charcoal BBQ outside which we didn’t get a chance to use. Also have a convenient outside area for rinsing and hanging dive equipment. Appreciated the seclusion and quiet - very good choice if you aren’t into the touristy scene. Hosts Garry and Susan are lovely! Enjoyed 3 dives at Honaunau Bay with Garry who was kind enough to lend me some gear as well as the advertised weights and air. Garry is a cautious and conservative diver so, as an infrequent diver, I felt very safe with him as guide. Saw tons of fish, a few turtles, heard the whales calling and was introduced to the local reef shark. This place is a terrific deal especially for scuba divers - would love to stay again. The hosts made it cosy and welcoming. Chatting with them and diving with Gary was a spectacular added bonus to the stay."

  • If we could, would rent again this beautiful house

    "Rented this home for a family reunion vacation that included 12 family members plus a 3 month old. The layout was perfect giving the parents & baby a master bedroom on one side of the house while the other members used the guest house bedroom, the other master bedroom & another bedroom which slept 4. Because of the layout, the baby only woke the parents during the night. We could have added at least 2 more guests before someone would have had to sleep on air mattresses which the owner would/could provide. We had plenty of space to move around the common areas (kitchen/livingroom/entertainment area/lanai) which was our main reason for renting this house. Heard no complaints from anyone regarding the availability of hot water for showers with this big group. Loved the scenic views from the lanai at dinner time and also in the morning. Loved the breeze that came through the doors leading out to the Lanai. Plenty of bath towels and etc, & plenty of beach towels for everyone to use during our stay. The high quality kitchen supplies (smaller appliances/plates/dishes/silverware and etc) were plentiful so that we would have only had to run the dishwasher twice a day but the dishwasher had to be used in shifts to handled the amount of dishes used by the group. We had a little issue with the food disposal (our fault) & the safe (not our fault). Both times the property manager responded quickly & fixed the issue. He was very cordial & helpful giving tips of good places to eat, little known scenic by-passes & excursions. The helpful "tip packet" given by the home owner was also very valuable. Homeowner was prompt & easy to deal with. Location was excellent. We felt the location was great for getting to all the areas on the Kona side of the island and it also allowed us to drive a doable 1 1/2 hours to the Volcano National Park on the Hilo side. The parking area by the garages was roomy enough to hold 3 rental vehicles (2 midsize and an extended van) plus a motorcycle. I most warn people, the first time going up and down the driveway was a little scary. It's a great place for walking for exercise!! If I have to say something negative - the dogs next door barked a little - never during the night & never for extended periods of time. Just interrupted the peace & quiet now & then. We learned after the 2nd occurrence that after showing in the guest house, make sure to keep the bathroom door closed or the steam will set of the smoke detector."
