Relaxing and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

If you are seeking a quiet and affordable place to stay in Hawaii for a family away from the resorts then this is the place. Very clean and well equipped home. Great location if you want to explore the island. We loved the views and the amazing sunsets. We were often the only people on the pebble beach just a brief (but steep) walk to the pebble beach. We were able to visit several other beaches, the volcano park and Hilo. At the house, we spent most of our time in the lanai, relaxing and enjoying the views.

The only things to consider are, there is no A/C, so it did get very warm at times and stuffy especially if the house was locked up. There are many fans which helped a great deal. I somehow overlooked that the third bedroom is not attached to the main living area, so my kids weren't interested in sleeping separated from the rest of the family. The location isn't convenient to shopping, so just ensure when you are out to get everything on your list.

Overall, great home, the owners are very responsive and we had no issues finding the home (using a GPS) and getting in, even after arriving very late in the evening.

Great views!

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfectly set up for anyone to have a great vacation. The beach, which is walking distance from the house, is small and very private. The snorkeling was great and wish we had more time to explore the coastline. It is also a very quiet area. Highly recommend this place if you want to kick back and enjoy the Big Island without the crowds.

Lovely Stay in Captain Cook

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous View within a peaceful neighborhood! Well stocked kitchen, and plenty of fans throughout. Thoughtful amenities like snorkel sets, beach chairs and beach towels provided. The yard is full of beautiful vegetation and the pebble beach at the bottom of the road was a fun place to explore within walking distance. This vacation rental was a comfortable home base for our families Hawaiian Adventure.

Beautiful view, very clean, everything we hoped it would be.

  • 5 of 5

The home is lovely, updated, and comfortable. We especially loved the screened in lanai! The home is situated on quite a steep driveway and street area, just keep that in mind.

Very comfortable home away from home!

An AWESOME place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 12 days and loved the experience. We highly recommend this house. You WILL get used to the driveway and road. It was beautiful and the view is worth the extra drive when you need to go to Kailua. The local restaurants are very good and reasonably priced. We highly recommend a local beach called Ho'okena. It has everything, snorkeling, dolphins, turtles, tide pools, and swimming. Thank you for sharing your home!
