Extended Family New Year’s
Absolutely loved our time as a family in this beautiful home! Mornings on the lanai watching the dolphins and whales. Afternoons snorkeling, evenings watching the sunset and nights under the Milky Way.
Wow!!! Absolutely Incredible
Here for the Kona Ironman World Championships with my family of 10 people. Incredible place. Swam with dolphins
Just perfect !!! Captain cook is the place to be and this place is the most amazing house in the area.
Very open spaces. Large and spacious. Incredible views !!!!
Just perfect. Thanks you
Our family had a wonderful time Kayaking. It was a highlight of the trip.
A great rental for our group of 8 adults and 2 children
This home was perfect for our group of 4 couples and 2 children. The bedrooms were separated enough for everyone to have some privacy, and the kitchen, dining and living room were large enough for the group. There was ample room on the outdoor deck as well as the deck by the ocean. The two bedrooms at the north end of the house were separated by a court yard from the home. One room had a single queen bed, and the second had three beds. They did have to share a bathroom, but both had ocean views. The very large bedroom above the garage had 5 beds, a large bathroom with a walk in shower and a washer and dryer. This room has ocean views and access from inside and from the deck and was a perfect setting for the family with children.
The fourth bedroom was on the south side off the garage and had a queen bed, a sofa bed and a small kitchen area. This room had the outside bathroom and the outdoor shower, and while the room was very private, and had the only air conditioning, it did not have an ocean view. The outdoor shower was not private and was a little uncomfortable taking showers during the day.
There is a second laundry facility and two extra refrigerators in the garage. You can get one vehicle in the garage, and there is parking for one or two vehicles outside, but you may have to move vehicles if you have three. We had two vehicles and could easily get either vehicle out. Everything you need is in the house from hair dryers and beach towels, to all the kitchen items you will need.
The location on Kealakekua Bay and having the ocean kayaks was great. We saw the dolphins daily, the manta rays and sea turtles were common, and a hump back whale visited during our stay in early December. There are literally hundreds of different reef fish if you enjoy snorkeling and off shore fishing.
If you have an issue with bugs and critters, this may not be the place for you. It is impossible to keep bugs out of a home in this climate and location; and while they do have bait out, you could experience the occasional live or dead rat. You will have gecko's in the house, and the mongoose will methodically check all the doors and windows to see if they can find a way in. We enjoyed the mongoose and the gecko's, and the bugs and the dead rat were not a problem for us. If you are from northern climates, and like to sleep in a cool room; the lack of air conditioning may be a problem for you.
We loved our stay and we are coming back!
Six days with the family and the dolphins
I loved this trip--our 'home' was at the end of the line; private and mostly quiet. There was plenty of space for all of us; kitchen, bathrooms and laundry all worked fine. Lots of towels helped! Loved sleeping to the sounds of the ocean.
Negatives? maybe could use a few more fans for the house--the bedrooms got pretty warm...also the hot tub was in a great location but the heat was set too high and we couldn't really use it comfortably.
