Recent Captain Cook reviews

  • Exactly as advertised!

    "From the beginning, the owner kindly responded to emails/phone calls very promptly. He also provided us with a great list of suggested places to visit. This home is comfortable, in a great location and has everything one can need. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of items to easily prepare meals. I was worried about having mostly screened in windows thinking it may get too hot or too cold. We lucked out with the weather and enjoyed a cool ocean breeze, plus falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean was amazing. The home was clean, had plenty of linens, beach toys and outing items, i.e. cooler, picnic basket, blue ice, etc. There is a small, slightly rocky beach within a 2 minute walk, great for taking an easy dip. We enjoyed 'two steps' a few miles away, a trip to the Big Island Honey Bee Farm only minutes away, drove to the volcano, went to the seahorse farm and enjoyed relaxing in the outdoor living room this home has. The home has a great layout, plenty of room to relax and enjoy. There is great outdoor space that is comfortable...just watch out for the mosquitos, but like everything else the owner has prepared for this with bug spray and candles to repel them. I would definitely return for another visit. Thank you!"

  • South Kona Gem

    "Loved our stay at Stacey's and looking forward to returning. It's a perfect location for exploring Kailua-Kona and areas to the south (e.g., Cook's Bay, Two--Step/Place of Refuge, Black Sand Beach, Volcano National Park and the village). Beautiful property full of various kinds of fruit trees, and with views beyond to the ocean. All the toys you could possibly want: beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, noodles, snorkel gear). Nicely equipped kitchen along with an outdoor gas grill. Plenty of ceiling and floor fans to keep the interior temp comfortable, and it's already a tad cooler than Kona-town to begin with as it's at a a couple hundred feet or so above sea level. Don't forget the outdoor shower, which is a lovely green oasis. Really enjoyed getting to know Stacey while there too. Mahalo, Jean"

  • Wonderful!

    "We loved staying at Pau Hana Coffee Plantation in november 2026, it is a very unique experience. The room is very clean and comfortable with everything you would need. Lots of towels and all the beach gear which is very nice to have. The deck is huge and really enjoyed having our patio doors open all night, it was very safe and comfortable. The coffee is the best ever and you will definitely want to take some home. Carol gave us a tour of the plantation and answered all our question, very informative. We would definitely stay her again, hope to soon. Barb"

  • Loved spring break at the cove

    "We felt like we knew what to expect from the pictures and the other reviews, but I have to say the experience, the house and the view were even better than we expected. The view from the infinity pool was amazing and we loved the hot tub. We were there to witness spectacular sunsets on 5 of 7 nights. We slept to the sound of waves crashing on the rocks every night. The frontage down to the ocean is a little steep and rocky, but it was no problem for me and my family (2 teenage boys - 14 and 16). The seas were calm enough a few days for us to hop in and snorkel in the cove. There was a sea turtle and a variety of colorful tangs, wrasses and huge parrot fish hanging out there. I'd guess its 15-20 feet deep as soon as you jump in. A couple of rock structures made a ledge for a decent way out of the water. You have to use common sense though, there were a couple days the seas were way too rough. Safety first! The location of the house was a nice compromise for us since we wanted to visit the green sand beach and the volcano & lava tube on the south and south east part of the island as well as hit some of the attractions in Kona. I believe the nearest store was about 25 minutes south, while Walmart and other shopping was about a 50 minutes north. Plan your shopping and stock the fridge and cupboards. The house has everything you need to cook or barbecue on the Weber, there was even a strainer to make spaghetti or Mac n Cheese. We packed light, all carry-on, due to the full laundry available there. The house really had everything we needed. Fantastic place. Highly recommended!"
