Overview

About the property

1BR Oceanview Vacation Rental Captain Cook, Hawaii USA

Imagine sitting at a table or reclining in a lawn chair, perched on the mountain side above Kealakekua Bay, looking over the southern Kona coastline with an unobstructed view at the 1200 ft elevation. 'Wow', you say, 'the view is incredible!' A veritable slice of paradise, with ocean glistening to the west and mountain slopes to the south. Your soul is at peace. Red cardinals and yellow finches are scampering for food. A canoe race or fishing tournament just might be happening in the ocean near the coastline.

We have such a place - a one-bedroom vacation rental on our working macadamia nut and coffee farm. This is where the South Kona Macadamia Nut Company processes its succulent nut products. The grounds around the rental have citrus and banana trees, but the orchard of coffee and macadamia nut trees comprise the commercial aspect of the farm.

The rental is in the lower level of the main house; a screened-in porch has a kitchenette and futon sofa. Very private.

Open another screen door and the avocado green walls of a large bedroom, complete with a queen-sized bed and tropical furnishings, greet you. The bathroom has a large shower. With a separate entrance, your privacy is assured.

Located on Napo'opo'o Road in Captain Cook on the big island of Hawaii, you are minutes away from the famous Kealakekua Bay and other Hawaiian sites of interest. Swim, snorkel, or kayak; drive around the island; visit the national parks; or, just stay put and soak up the view! Shopping centers are close by as are fine restaurants.

About Meris or Brad

We moved to Hawaii in 1978 from Fairbanks, AK. We built the house and started clearing the land and planting macadamia nut trees. We started the vacation rental in 2006.

Why Meris or Brad chose Captain Cook

This property has a beautiful view of the southern coastline of Hawaii island. It is quiet but filled with sounds of birds. The rental is away from the craziness of Kailua-Kona village and a good place to relax. It is also within excessible distances of water activities ,etc.

What makes this apartment unique

You have an opportunity to learn about macadamia nuts and coffee cultivation.

They are very generous and hearty.

We'll recommend this place to anyone.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

SK Vacation Rental offers you simple elegance, convenience and comfort--and did we mention the awesome view of Kealekekua Bay?! Experience life on a working mac nut farm (yum!) in the beautiful rural ambience of South Kona. Awaken to the dawn chorus of myriad birds, and fall asleep to the gentle pattter of Kona's famous misty rain (where all that green comes from!).

Your hosts Brad and Meris will do everything they can to make you comfortable. (And Brad can give you a lot of inside information on the history and sociology of South Kona). Co-hosts Blackie and Kai will be your best friends if you bring them the occasional biscuit.

While in South Kona be sure to: (1) visit Pu'uhonua O Honaunau (Place of Refuge) and snorkel at Two-Step (Honaunau Beach), (2) rent a Kayak from Ehu & Kai's on the bay (follow the signs) and paddle to the Capt. Cook monument where you can beach the boat and snorkel (and if you are lucky, the dolphins will come swim with YOU), and (3) have a down-home Hawaiian-style dinner at the Manago Hotel (we recommend the famous pork chops).

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Brad and Meris' place. We were amazed with the views and the privacy we had. They have all of the amenities you need to cook a pretty great meal and everything you need for the beach! We arrived late at night and literally hit the beach right in the morning as everything we needed was provided. They gave us our space and we were free to pick oranges and fruit from the trees, which made some awesome fresh juice. We would 100% stay here again.

Fabulous views with no Wifi

  • 3 of 5

This is hard to rate. I decided on 3 stars because:

Five stars for the incredible view and comfortable place. Did I mention incredible view?

One star for no working Wifi despite having emailed and asking specifically about this before booking and being assured it worked. It's possible that it did work, but we wouldn't know because the password provided did not work for either of us. The hosts sort of shrugged and said "That's the password. You're on vacation anyway."

I get the impression that they don't understand the difference between a problem w/the password and the Internet signal. As a travel blogger, I rely on Internet in evenings to plan the next day: everything from where to rent a paddle board to hikes at Volcanos Nat'l Park. Plus, it would've been great to stream Netflix during the day it rained non-stop.

My only complaint though. (Hot plate is very efficient, although there's just one burner.) If Wifi isn't a deal breaker, this is your place!

Owner's Response: I very sorry that this guest had trouble with internet connections. Our place is located in an "iffy" location so there is no way of knowing who will have trouble connecting. I went to the Verizon store downtown and his only encouragement was that Verizon was considering a tower in the area. Tomorrow an IT specialist (I'm a total "Luddite" with IT) is going to trouble shoot and fix or make recommendations. Rest assured that the problem will be remedied as I can't afford to lose guests over this issue. Many folks are gone all day and return in the evening so they have the opportunity to connect at other locations before getting back here. Not an excuse, but it has worked for them. I certainly hope that this one issue will not prevent interested people from booking here. We work very hard to provide a pleasing place with, yes, an Incredible View! Aloha, Meris Farwell

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Meris was a great host! The place was clean and bed was comfy! My husband walked around the farm with Meris and learned a few things. The driveway was a little crazy to drive on, but we had a Jeep so it was all good!
