About the property

Aloha and welcome to Beth’s Hawaiian Hideaway in Captain Cook/Honaunau in South Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Our beautiful 'Plumeria Queen Suite” with shared pool is a great place for couples or anyone who would like to have a wonderful Kona, Big Island vacation rental that’s much more affordable and offers more amenities than most condos or B and B’s offer. JUST ADDED 3 stand up paddle boards and 3 kayaks free of charge.

Cook your own meals in your efficiency kitchen, BBQ on your private deck or dine out...it’s your choice. We are close to grocery stores, shopping, restaurants and many activities and a great jumping-off place for other activities around the island. This adorable and spacious (400 sq ft) studio with queen bed is open, bright and airy. The entire ocean facing wall of the Hideaway is filled with screened windows and peaceful views of the lawn, landscaping, fruit trees and the sea. Enjoy the lovely living room area with bamboo couch and chairs, satellite TV, and both indoor and outdoor dining areas. Sit under the Plumeria tree on your own private deck to enjoy watching the sun set . Sleep like a baby in the comfy Queen size bed. The suite has a private 3/4 bath with shower, complimentary robes included. You will have a separate private entrance in a beautiful residential area. We have wireless access to the internet for those who just can't leave it behind also ipod capable music players.

About David Stuit

Beth sitting on Seawall in Kona

David Stuit purchased this studio in 2007

Why David Stuit chose Captain Cook

My wife Beth grew up in Malibu, California and has always wanted to return to the ocean so when we visited friends here in the Spring of 2007 we both fell in love with the South Kona area and after much web looking we found this place. The rest is history

What makes this studio unique

We are very well located for those who love to snorkel and kayak and for these day trips to Volcano Park, South Point or Hilo. We are within 2 hours of any where else on the Island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful suprise we have stumbled upon. How lucky we are to have had such warm and genuine hosts. The tips you have given us have been invaluable, much prefered to any guide book. Thanks to the tree outside our door we are now certifiable star fruit addicts. Far too short, our stay with you has been a little slice of heaven for budget travelers such as our selves. We will forever remember your hideaway as the gateway to some of the world's best snorkeling..... who could forget the dolphins?!! We hope to see you again. Take Care.

Great stay with perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife had a great stay! The location is perfect with easy access to the coast and beautiful snorkeling. Dave has all the equipment you need and will help you load kayaks on your car. Views and fresh fruit on the property! Would stay again.

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I really liked this place. The property is peaceful and quiet and the owners provide everything you need to thoroughly enjoy the area. Plus, they are so thoughtful and welcoming. It was cold one night and they brought us blankets before we even thought to ask! It's close to the place of refuge, 2 step and kelakekua bay. It's part of the owners home, but it is completely self- sufficient and we were given plenty of privacy. I would definitely return and am so grateful for the time we spent there.

Neat place, nice people

  • 4 of 5

David and Beth's place was a great start to our first visit to Hawaii. The location was beautiful, the artistic touches impressive and all the toys to use were a bonus! They pointed us to some really special local spots, were patient with our daughter and helped us jumpstart our rental car. The only thing we think could be improved is the queen bed mattress needs replaced.

Thanks for letting us stay with you!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This is the PERFECT place to stay when visiting the Big Island. It is peaceful, cleverly appointed, and very clean. Beth and Dave are amazing hosts, very respectful of our space. We arrived in the dark and Beth even met us at the driveway with a flashlight to ensure we had no difficulty finding the drive. If you have not been to HI, it gets dark at night (the stars are amazing!) They also provided helpful details on where to get groceries, snorkel, and kayak. Speaking of gear...its all there and in good condition. They even have soft racks so you will have no problem putting the kayak on your rental AND they have the required permit to kayak into Captain's Cove.

We are grateful to have stayed here. Thank you Beth and Dave!
