Gorgeous house with an amazing view of Kealakekua Bay.
We have stayed in the area on 3 separate occasions over the last 8 years, and in many ways this house was our favorite. The view of the water from the house is unbelievable. The master bedroom is like a private oasis with windows in all directions. The kitchen was very well appointed - it was set up better than any rental house I've ever stayed in. The living room was comfortable, and had a "wall" of doors that opened up to the bay, making it feel like you were outside. The backyard was lush and beautiful, with another large deck and patio table large enough to accommodate our party of 7. It is one of the few houses in the area that has 4 bedrooms, which was what we needed for our large group.
If there was a down side, I would say it's that the bedrooms are very unequal in terms of size, amenities, and desirability. It worked out fine for our group, but if you had a group of 4 couples, it might be difficult to figure out who stays where. The room in the basement is cute, with it's own sitting area and a little mini fridge, but it smelled damp and had no bathroom, which could be a problem for some people. It was fine for the kids.
The house said it came with kayaks for 7, but when we got there, one of the double kayaks was missing and another was being repaired, so we only had kayaks for 3. But we got one of the kayaks back during our stay after it was fixed.
Overall, the location was amazing, the house was beautiful and comfortable, and we all had a lovely time. I would certainly stay there again.
Very comfortably appointed home right on the bay.
Great home in a great location. They had everything necessary to make for an easy stay.
A secluded retreat close to Kona
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.
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
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!
