  • Incredible, beautiful, and peaceful paradise

    "Staying at this cottage was far better than expected. The hosts are extremely welcoming and accommodating, and the environment is lovely. Our two-year-old loved the goats, sheep, peacocks, and cats, and we loved everything about the place!"

  • 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."

  • 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"

  • Family Gathering

    "We spent a fabulous week at this lovely house in February, 2014. It was a perfect location and accommodations for 4 generations. There were ten of us, ages 4 to 84. Many things about the visit are memorable, but especially we found that the house offers a big group lots of spaces to be together, and also places to be alone. Large bedrooms and bathrooms distributed conveniently and each with some privacy. There were places to make puzzles together, play cards, eat shared meals, watch the Winter Olympics on big screens (several), and then outdoors to go swimming (luxurious pool!), and explore the surroundings amongst the avocado trees. The kitchen is spacious and modern so several people can work together on different things and come up with a wonderful spread. An issue arose with the water supply, but vastly more important, we found that all it took was a quick phone call, and the owner leapt into action, and things were fixed. She has a well-established support crew that knows what to do when stuff happens. This vacation house is conveniently located near some of the best ocean beaches on the Big Island, in the Captain Cook/City of Refuge area, and the owner’s detailed descriptions in the written information are very helpful. The house has enough altitude above the ocean that the view of the sky and sea is spectacular, and yet the temperatures/humidity are moderate 24/7. When you visit this place, be sure to take the time to walk down to the main road and back at least once. Round trip it is about an hour’s walk, and if you take time to smell the flowers, and to take pictures of the plants, flowers, fruits, berries and animals along the way, you won’t soon forget it."

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.
