About the Property
Tropical Gardens, Pool, & Hot Tub, Make This The Perfect Island Getaway!
Outside, a covered lana'i and outdoor shower (great after a trip to nearby beaches), are bordered by a bamboo grove and banana trees. A pool and hot tub are all steps away – as are mangoes, bananas, avocados and papayas.
Inside is furnished with rattan furniture, a dreamy queen-sized bed, and plenty of space for relaxing. The kitchen is compact and complete – featuring a dishwasher, microwave, 4-burner gas cook top, convection/toaster oven (but no 'full-size' oven), and 20x20x36 refrigerator with upper, separate 16x16x20 freezer. Custom-built bamboo cabinetry ties everything together in unmistakable island style.
We loved designing, building and living in our little cottage. It gives us great pleasure to share this love with like-minded guests who are seeking something more authentic than your typical 'condo experience'.
Please be aware that Hawai'i is probably more 'rural' than you are used to. There are places on the Island that have no cell phone reception (although it is quite good at our cottage), and Internet connectivity is only 'adequate' (and sometimes awkward). We subscribe to a cable Internet service, and reset the cable router frequently. There is WiFi at the property, but you will most likely need to restart your device/equipment.
And because this information is deeply buried in the VRBO 'extras', but is one of the most frequently asked questions:
The pool is shared with one other vacation rental studio. This 14 by 14 pool is unfenced, and there is no lifeguard present. Pool is about 10 feet deep. It is professionally serviced once a week.
The hot tub next to the pool is rarely used by anyone other than our Island Getaway guests. This is because the other Tropical Hideaway vacation rental guests have their own, private, hot tub. Although it is not prohibited that they use the hot tub by the pool, it is uncommon for this to happen.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Paying with a credit card on VRBO protects your payment for up to $10,000 against listing fraud. We recommend completing your booking on VRBO.Verify your payment method

This unique cottage is located on the south Kona coast, just minutes from the best snorkeling in the Hawai'ian islands.
You will also be in the famed Kona coffee region, where some of the best coffee in world is grown. You can sample this coffee, or take an informative tour, at nearby roasters.
Not to be missed is the Volcano's National Park, 1 1/2 hours drive from this location. Watch the earth being formed before your eyes when you visit the Kilauea crater.
One of the State of Hawai'i's two National Historic Parks is the 'City of Refuge', located 5 minutes, or 1.6 miles from the cottage. This historic and restored ruins will give you a sense of the island's fascinating history, and is adjacent to enticing 'Two Step' snorkeling. There is also a nice white sand beach about 15 minutes south of our cottage!
An amazing Fruit Stand is just a bit further south and has fruits that you will have never even heard of!
Painted Church is a well-known attraction. It is a 10 minute walk from the cottage, and is a simple wooden structure whose hand-painted interior decor was meant to replicate the glory of the cathedrals. Catholic services are held and are posted. You will be welcome.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: We are freshly retired and love the idea of having this wonderful island getaway to share with people. Rennie was a software developer, and Hope was a property manager. We love to travel, especially when warm water is involved! Although we have traveled many places, this is our favorite place to enjoy rest and relaxation.
Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook, HI, USA:
The first time we arrived here, we thought this was the perfect place to spend our island vacation. Being so close to great snorkeling, beaches and close enough to Kona for a night out, we loved this getaway cottage so much that we returned a year later to purchase it.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Being in a beautiful tropical garden, with the pool, hot tub and gorgeous view of the ocean and mountain volcano, this place is sublime.
