  • 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."

  • What a delight!

    "We are very happy with our choice of this property. The owners are great and the house is wonderful. We are big snorkel/dive fans and the proximity to two Steps/ Place of Refuge was ideal. The house and kitchen are fully equipped with the newest amenities including cable and internet for those requiring an electronic leash. The view is great and the neighborhood very quiet even thought it it just off the Mahamloa Highway. It is a few miles from 'civilization' in Captain Cook so a little planning for food and gas are smart. The angle of the drive is a little harrowing the first few times. But come and enjoy, enjoy!"

  • Beautiful retreat with unique hospitality

    "We spend part of our vacation on Big Island at Davia and Augusts place. Arriving, we found ourselves surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden. This garden must be explored as it is so rich and a real composition! There is something to discover at every corner e.g. nice sculptures, a seating area. The room and the outdoor kitchen are comfortable, cozy and spotless clean. Very impressive is the view from the private lanai: the ocean in front of you. It is the perfect location to watch the sunset or just relax and enjoy the surrounding. The hospitality we experienced was really exceptional and we felt warmly welcome. August made great suggestions on where to go. We found everything needed for a great day at the beach: beach chairs and towels as well as snorkeling gear. There are several beaches close by where snorkeling is possible. Highly recommended! We would love to come back some day."

  • Our stay at captain cook

    "The property is everything we could want , great views , well equipped and comfortable. The location South of the airport is away from the crowds but close enough to get to both sides of the island as long as you don't mind a bit of driving Michele the owner was very helpful and emailed us a couple of times to make sure we were ok We were two couples so only really used the upper part of the accommodation but downstairs looked ideal if you had another couple or children with you"
