One Bedroom with King Sleep Number Suites On An Acre Of Tropical Landscape

South Kona Hideaway is near some of the best snorkeling Hawaii has to offer. We are situated between Honaunau (Place of Refuge) and Kealakekua Bay at an elevation of 800 ft. Your beautifully decorated suite has a living room with a queen sofa bed, large flat screen television with cable, HBO, and Showtime. Your living room opens onto a large lanai, where you can relax. Your spacious kitchen has a sink, microwave, toaster, full-sized refrigerator/freezer, and dining table. There is a small camp oven/stove and barbecue outside of this unit which is shared with the other guests. The bedroom has a king sized Sleep Number bed for your comfort, and private bath with shower.

We are easy to find, located approximately 45 minutes South of the airport, 30 minutes South of Kailua-Kona (town), and 20 minutes South of Keauhou. The volcano is approximately a two hour scenic drive. Your suite has dedicated parking, and a private entrance.

We only have two suites, and we live on site. Don't know what to see? We can give you some recommendations.

About Tina Snapp and Keri Jones

After many trips to Hawaii, we finally bought a home and relocated here in 2012 from Colorado. Tina is a retired nurse and Keri is a veterinarian. We have travelled the world in search of the best snorkeling, and this rivals the best. We are willing and happy to help with recommendations, but will otherwise be out of your way.

Tina Snapp and Keri Jones purchased this house in 2012

Why Tina Snapp and Keri Jones chose Captain Cook

South Kona Hideaway is one of the most relaxing places we've ever stayed. The property is beautiful, the sunsets incredible, and you're only 10 minutes from beautiful live coral and brightly colored fish. Your own lanai and a cocktail... What more could you want?

What makes this house unique

Your continental breakfast will be delivered to your unit the night before and ready when you are. You can get up early or sleep in. You will not have to worry about somewhere to park, or being able to find your way back at night on a one lane jungle road. We are only half a mile off the main highway, on a 'full sized' paved road. Snorkel equipment, beach chairs, and boogie boards are available to borrow during your stay.

Superb - Residence and hosts! The hospitality, comfort and peacefulness was outstanding.

  • 5 of 5

Our experience is one we will never forget. We were greeted upon arrival and it just went up from there. Tina and Keri will make you feel so at home - like you really do belong there. We enjoyed their company so much and although they are a busy couple of ladies you never feel rushed when asking questions about their place, the island or whatever is on your mind. The breakfasts were always always a surprise with exotic fruit and a homemade treat. The property was bursting with flowers and various fruit trees and wandering around it all is encouraged. Tina and Keri know the island well and have a very detailed map of the area near by and they will point you to other sites to see on the island. South Kona Hideaway is a gem. It's not just an accommodation; it is an experience.

Best B&B Ever.

  • 5 of 5

Keri and Tina made us feel welcome from the first minute. We arrived early and looked bedraggled enough they let us in to shower and coffee.

Lovely ladies and neat accom,

The breakfast muffins and fruit lived up to their reputation.

The views brilliant , and comfortable furnishings.

i would say the only bad thing about the whole experience is the road they live on , we took the short way in .bad move follow the main road around and down. that road is scary windy esp if your driving on the wrong side of the road for you.

Close to neat places to eat .

The place is so well stocked with everything you could possibly want , from snorkles to beach chairs to rain coats ..

thanks so much ladies we had a wonderful time.....

Great Location and Fruit

  • 5 of 5

This is an ideal location for those interested in being close to the best snorkeling on the big island, yet also nestled away in the trees. The owners provided us with plentiful breakfasts every day. I never realized how good papayas, lychees, longhis, apple-bananas could be. The fruit is picked fresh on site.

Great stay - thank you.

Friendly, beautiful, serene

  • 5 of 5

Owners welcome is incredible. The home and view are very nice and comfy. We didn’t use the outdoor hot cooking facilities, but had everything we needed for our brief stay. Surprise of homemade muffins, fruit and coffee breakfast was delightful! We were close to amazing snorkeling, and easy access to Kona if/when we wanted. We spent three nights in the Lanai accommodation. - perfect for two. We would definitely book again.
