About Jeni Herberger
We spent 2 years living in this beautiful home nestled in the slopes of Mauna Loa with our 3 kids. Business and education brought us back to the mainland recently but we have every intention of moving back to paradise some day soon. Enjoy our home in our absence! Aloha!
Jeni Herberger purchased this House in 2006
Why Jeni Herberger chose Captain Cook
Kona has long been a favorite place of ours and when the opportunity presented itself for us to relocate, this was our first choice. We fell in love with the home, the land and the peace and beauty the property offers.
What makes this House unique
Our friends, guests and ohana tell us they don't want to leave the property once they arrive. Everything you could imagine is right there; a resort-style pool, acres of fruit trees, an open house with incredible decor! Simply ono!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
We had a wonderful visit to the Big Island and Jeni’s home was a delight. Everything was well maintained and the house and grounds are beautiful. The little town of Captain Cook was a quick trip for supplies, and the proximity to terrific snorkeling was a daily joy.
We loved picking avocados, starfruit and lemons and cooking in the well stocked kitchen. The sunsets are amazing from the house!
Jeni was a responsive and gracious host. Our family of nine appreciated the opportunity to share her wonderful home.
A beautiful home, with much neglect.
We stayed at this beautiful home 5 years ago, and had a great experience. Since that time, it appears that the owners have given up on guest satisfaction and home maintenance. The yard appears un-mowed for a month, and there is an absolute mountain of garbage and recyclables behind the garage, stinking and drawing flies, feral cats, and who knows what else. The biggest problem was the refrigerator, which apparently has not been working properly for a while, since all the home instructions warn guests to close the fridge tightly. We were diligent about that, yet it still only got to 50 degrees F at most times. Our daughter had stomach issues for the last two days there and two days at our next house, very likely from eating food that was spoiled. One of the requirements was that guests had to wash and dry bath towels before leaving, a very difficult task when you are showering and packing to get out by 10:00 AM. The cookware and glassware (plastic) is very poor, not what you would expect at these prices. I hope the owners take more interest in this home, it's a great place with so much to offer. Sad to see it in this state of neglect.
What a shame to receive a review such as this with no notification from the guest! We take so much pride in the beautiful property and only upon this review discovered the grounds had not been tended. Upon contacting our landscaper we discovered he had left the island suddenly due to a family emergency. A simple phone call would have allowed us to immediately deal with the situation. Undoubtedly piles of garbage are a problem and if we had been notified it would have been dealt with immediately. We've no garbage service and must be diligent in removing on our own. We do rely on our guests to tell us what is happening at the home during their stay. As far as the refrigerator, it is a top of the line sub-zero but when 12 guests stay at the house, are consistently in and out, not closing it completely, it will over heat. Again, a simple phone call would have been appreciated. To our future guests, please note the only complaints are based on non-communication and poor cookware. We will absolutely do our part to ensure our guests are comfortable and can enjoy all the property and home have to offer. Mahalo!
Beautiful property with excellent ammenities!
had a very enjoyable 2 week stay with extended family, including 3 toddlers. Jeni was always available to assist with issues, questions - not that many arose. The property is located welcomingly in the hills to provide just enough buffer to be away from the hustle-bustle, but close enough to a grocery store and other essentials to make the stay very enjoyable. The house was also stocked with every imaginable amenity, including a pack-n-play for our youngest, Would definitely stay again. Mahalo!!!
Perfect for multiple family get away.
The house was great and loved the open sliding doors. Anything you may need is there. It is secluded and nightly climate is cool and soothing. The house is spread out and beautiful to sit by the pool to visit with family or watch children swim. Would recommend all the way. Very close grocery stores.
exactly what was needed...
This is simply an amazing property tucked into a great corner of the Big Island. It gives the right amount of privacy while maintaining easy access to the area (which has some of the friendliest people).
This home provided all the amenities we had been told to expect There were coolers and beach equipment, a great pool. tiki lights, and plenty of room. The kitchen was fully equipped and plenty of parking space. The grounds are very nice with avocadoes, papaya and palms. The location is within fifteen minutes of three beaches and easy to get to Highway 11 which circles the island. The driveway to the house is narrow but paved and the directions to access the property are excellent. The home easily accommodates a large family, couples and singles. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the owner is very easy to work with.
Volcano National Park is just 85 miles from the property. Captain Cook's monument, Kealakekua Bay and City of Refuge are all nearby and a must see for visitors!
