  • Friendly Host and Great Location for Area Snorkeling

    "Todd's friendly and easy-going nature is contagious! A tour of his coffee farm and conversation with this Pennsylvanian-native-turned-Hawaiian is a must! As guests in his rental apartment you will enjoy samples of the coffee, nuts, and fruits harvested from his farm. And, any visitor to this area must go snorkeling at Two-Step and visit Pu'uhonua o Honaunau, the Place of Refuge. The apartment offers basic, not luxurious furnishings and decorations, but guests will find everything is clean and the kitchen has all you need to prepare meals. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the lanai during our stay. We also helped ourselves to the beach chairs for our outing to Two-Step and I supplemented my mask and snorkel with fins Todd has available for guests to borrow. The property is a working farm which means you will see a variety of tools, sheds, and projects associated with the farm from your view on the lanai. If you are looking for perfect manicured gardens, this working farm may not be the place for you. This farm and our conversation with Todd gave us the opportunity to learn how one family transitioned to the Big Island from the mainland. This apartment is also within driving distance to a fabulous local restaurant called The Strawberry Patch. We enjoyed celebrating my mother's 70th birthday and mother's day with an excellent dinner at this local eatery which Todd recommended. Thank you for helping to make our trip to the Big Island memorable."

  • Great Vacation in Wonderful Home!

    "The house was everything that was advertised! Beautiful views, well stocked and relatively close to local recreational sites. We spent a week here and on a couple of day traveled to the other side of the island. It is about a two hour trip, but there is plenty to see/do within a twenty minute drive. There was beach equipment available for our use, which was very convenient. Also, for anyone with teenagers, the wifi/cable were great quality. I would definitely stay here again if I were to return to the Big Island!"

  • Best Deal on VRBO

    "The pictures of the house do not do it justice. It is beautifully decorated, roomy, and immaculate inside and out. The location is the best part. My family and friends were amazed every day by the activities just minutes away. Place of refuge had clear clean water for snorkeling, tons of fish, turtles, eels and beautiful coral arches you could swim through($3 for parking) Kayaking by Captian Cooks monument where we got to swim with 30+ dolphins, even babies($60 for a 2 person kayak). The boys favorite activity was cliff jumping, 30 foot cliffs, crazy fun.(free). Restaurants around town were wonderful and affordable, but the house had such a great kitchen we enjoyed most of our meals there. The weather is cooler than the resort area by at least 10 degrees, making it just perfect. I can't thank Candi enough for her hospitality. She takes the time to point out the highlights of the area so you can plan your stay. We had 5 teenagers, and they said it was the best vacation they have ever had! That is the most amazing thing of all!"

Captain Cook Travel Tips

Explore Hawaii From Captain Cook Vacation Rentals

Located near where the famous captain discovered the Big Island in 1779, Captain Cook vacation rentals welcome you to the beauty of Hawaii. From towering lava cliffs to black-sand beaches, the area offers a unique natural landscape. Along Kealakekua Bay, you can follow a rugged footpath to a monument set up in honor of Captain Cook. The trail leading up the cliff passes many caves on its way to the summit.

Mountains and Volcanoes Surround Captain Cook Resort Rentals

Staying at Captain Cook resort rentals allows you the opportunity to explore Hawaii. Tour a coffee farm, enjoy local Macadamia nuts, or head to a farmer's market to buy the supplies you need to stock your fully equipped kitchen. From Captain Cook, you are approximately 90 minutes from Volcano National Park, home to one of the largest lava flows. If you prefer to stay by the ocean, pack a picnic lunch and head to Ho'okena Beach State Park. There you can swim with dolphins and sea turtles. From the lanai of your vacation rental in Captain Cook, enjoy views of Mt. Mauna Loa.

Discover Hawaii's Culture During Your Stay at Kona Coast Condos

Kona Coast is an area long revered by the royalty of Hawaii. You can find many attractions dedicated to preserving this cultural history. Near Kona Coast condos, you can find stone temples, petroglyphs, and the Place of Refuge National Historic Park. Learn about the early years of Hawaii and tour the grounds of sacred sites. After a day of feeling like Indiana Jones, return to your vacation rental in Captain Cook and prop your feet up in the furnished living room. Grab a glass of wine and enjoy the spectacular Hawaiian sunset from the privacy of your rental's deck, balcony, or yard.
