A secluded retreat close to Kona

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful house met all of our expectations! It is located on a very quiet street with an unobstructed view and access to Captain Cook bay. Rick, the owner, provided kayaks and snorkel gear. The snorkeling near the Captain Cook monument was among the best we've ever seen! The house was comfortable for our family of 7, ages 9-74. All of us enjoyed the resident geckos and mongoose. Mosquitoes were a bit annoying but we chalked that up to part of being in our own private tropical paridise. If you want the hustle and bustle of Hawaii, it is an easy drive to Kona. Our week went much too quickly.

Snorkeling Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful view of the bay. A comfortable house with great amenities. It had just about everything we could ask for. A quiet neighborhood, we could hear the surf crashing at night. The owner was helpful with info about local activities. It was a short walk to 3 really good snorkeling spots. Short kayak trip across the bay to a great snorkeling spot, Capt. Cook. Short drive to another great snorkeling spot, Two Step. I would stay here again.

Great home in quiet, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Tucked into a quiet neighborhood on a single lane road fronting a marine preserve with great snorkeling and kayaking just outside the door. Comfortable and thoughtfully furnished, a short drive to great food and a large market, kitchen is ready for cooking. Kayaks, snorkel gear and bikes provided for use are all in great shape. Perfect if you want time away from crowds and are interested in local history. Farmer's Market up the road on Saturdays. We will definitely come back!

Third time visiting this house!

This was our third trip to this house and it was as perfect as before. It really is a beautiful place to stay on vacation. I posted a review after the first year and nothing has changed from that. It really is fabulous!

Wonderful Home to Escape To

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this house--it is a great location right across the street from the Bay. We were lucky to swim with dolphins in the bay several times. The house is convenient to most locations including the Volcanoes and the North Shore beaches. We did not venture to Hilo as it was raining there most of our trip while it was beautiful every day in Captain Cook. The house is very well equipped and we enjoyed the kayaks quite a bit. The owner was responsive to our needs and we could not have been happier. We never wanted to leave!
