About the Property

Paikapahu House is an updated 2br/1ba vacation rental located in Captain Cook.

The Space
For parties requiring two bedrooms, rent the entire Paikapahu House for $150/night. With a queen bed in each bedroom plus two sleeper sofas in the living room, the house can accommodate up to eight guests. Some times of year I can rent it as a private one bedroom for $99/night. Please contact me for a rate quote. VRBO's rate quotes can be confusing.
One of the first things you will notice about this house is the view. Sweeping sunset vistas of Kealakekua Bay make the kitchen and dining room a perfect place to end a great day of exploring this beautiful region of Hawaii. Whether you’ve been hiking along the Captain Cook Monument Trail, kayaking and snorkeling at Kealakekua Bay, or touring Kona Coffee and mac nut farms, Paikapahu House is a perfect home base for all your adventures. For regional reference, this unit is approximately 25 minutes south of the town of Kailua-Kona, and about 35-40 minutes south of the Kona Airport.
With a recent remodel, Paikapahu House will offer you the comfort of a clean, modern, tropical retreat. The unit is a completely private and secure apartment of my house. Guests have their own entrance, full kitchen, living room, Wi-Fi, washer and dryer, and same-level parking.
I am happy to help you with any needs, requests or questions you may have during your stay.
Guest Access
Guests will have their own private unit with access to a full kitchen, washer and dryer, and property grounds.
Interaction with Guests
I like to meet and greet guests. But if I have to work, or be off Island, I will leave detailed instructions and a local contact.
The Neighborhood
Sunset views from the neighborhood are spectacular. It is a great location to access both Kealakekua Bay and South Kona's restaurants and shops.
Getting around
I strongly recommend a rental car for your stay in the South Kona region. Public transit is not convenient in this area.

House Rules
Guests are expected to respect the house and property. Simply clean up your things at the end of your stay, and I will take care of the rest. I look forward to hosting you!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I have been living in Hawaii with my family since 2001. My kids are now away at boarding school in Waimea during the week. The Paikapahu house is my new home. I set up the rental unit to help pay for college for my two daughters. I have been a farmer for the past 10 years and a massage therapist for the past 5 years. I have a beautiful massage and bodywork studio on the Paikapahu House Property. I work on many travelers as well as my regular clients. I have hosted travelers for several years at my previous residence, Kealaola Farm. I enjoy hosting, gardening and refereeing soccer for fun and fitness.
