Recent Captain Cook reviews
"We have had a very relaxing time here. Lots of whale watching and hiking. A bit far to do errands and eat out but nice to be away from the busyness of Kona. House was great, no,problems at all."

"Extremely comfortable for our somewhat large family group of 8 with our university kids and their friends. Oceanfront with tons of interesting snorkelling with reef fish and spinner dolphins. Although not near a sandy beach , there are several good entry points through the ancient lava flow. Our house had 4 kayaks available which made it so convenient to get out throughout the K-bay (Capt.Cook) and snorkel many different spots.
Great kitchen made for some great meals. The little geckos all around were delightful ! There is an artisan bakery just 5 min. south on the hwy called 'Oven and Butter' , where we bought warm fresh baguettes for breakfast every morning. Also a terrific Farmers Market on Saturdays right up there across the highway from the bakery. You will need a car. We can surely recommend this house warmly and hope to be back !"

"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!"
