What we loved

  • 5 of 5

This is a world class ohana. Such privacy. Its the garden level of a large home. Fully updated and decorated nicely but you come to Hawaii for the outdoor space and this HAS IT. Large covered lanai except for the hottub but we didn't use. Already warm enough outside ;-) The stove/oven is outside but I got used to it and understand why - keep the bugs out. We kept saying it would be perfect for a honeymoon. It was the cleanest place we ever stayed at in Kona...impressive.

What we really loved: the bed, the privacy, the views, access to snorkeling

The onlything we didn't like at first was the steep driveway but its paved. We got used to it.

Had a Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this nicely updated newer home, the place is even nicer than the pictures. My wife and I love the Big Island, this is our sixth stay. We plan to return here because we like it the best. Perfect views, privacy and phenomenal king bed. Extra bonus: we saw no bugs in the house and the A/C was wonderful when needed.

Terribly rude hosts

  • 1 of 5

Driveway scary steep older driver and dangerous drop off with no railings from small, very hot concrete lanai which anyone could fall off onto rocks below. Nowhere to sit comfortably inside as sofa almost touches bed. Impossible to cook for 10 days with refrigerator outside and tiny kitchen inside with no counter space. Old furnishings and Not very clean. Owners were very rude and unhelpful when we could not stay because of driveway and car bottoming out. They suggested my 85 yr husband walk up and down to main road. We had to find and pay for another place and owners offered no help at all. A big financial loss for senior citizens visiting grandchildren at xmas.

Owner's Response: The last thing my wife is is rude.. Far from it. Susan has already visted the house for a showing - makes no sense. Susan arrived and said, My grandkids cannot play out here, I said, they could but they are not on the reservation so this cannot be a day care for them. Then she said her son's subcompact cant do the driveway, and we said it could (she drove it) but that we don't recommend subcompacts anywhere in Hawaii. Then she said she can't use her cell phone but proceeded to call Luana Inn which is 350 per night. We gave her 2 nights refund on a 7 night Christmas reservation which is very generous for an inexcusable cancellation. Her husband is a dear guy. I really liked him. They have multiple vrbos in Aspen, Colorado.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice little studio. The bed is gigantic, and the hot tub is nice to relax in at night after a day of adventuring or what have you. The view is pretty great too.

The owners were very responsive and flexible. Due to an issue with the condo we were going to stay in, I had to scramble to find a replacement last minute and they were very helpful getting it booked and answering my questions. The deposit was returned promptly as well. Would definitely recommend booking this rental.

Awesome view and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a place last minute to stay for a few days. Keith and Rebecca were very quick to respond and provide details on how to get there and check in. The unit was spotless, spacious (for a couple) and air conditioned, and the lanai and view are as amazing as the listing describes. Not only that but our dog was allowed to stay here too! It was easy to get to Puuhonua o Hōnaunau and the ocean so we made lots of short trips. It would've been great if the indoor portion of the kitchen (sink and cabinets) were in the outdoor lanai along with the fridge and stove but other than that it was perfect. Oh and did I mention the view? :-) We will definitely be back to stay here if its available. Thanks Keith and Rebecca.

Tranquil place

  • 4 of 5

A wonderful place to stay in Captain Cook with expansive views of the ocean. Rebecca was a great host and made us feel welcome. She even brought us fresh bananas from her garden during our stay. The room is located under the main home but has high ceilings so feels very spacious and has direct access to a large outdoor patio. Included was a laptop which was handy. The place was neat and clean, and felt very peaceful and serene. A wonderful little getaway!d
