Recent Captain Cook reviews

  • Outstanding Piece of Paradise

    "What a wonderful place. As other reviews have noted, the pictures are exactly what you get with this gem. My wife and I loved every minute of our week here, with everything described in the overview coming true for us. As frequent visitors to the state of Hawaii, it was a privilege to stay in a Hale that exceeded all of our expectations. Although the home lacks air conditioning, the breezes flowing between efficient screened windows and lanai doors were more than enough to compensate. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!"

  • Two weeks in local paradise

    "We spent two full weeks with our small family in the lower flat... Felt very private, yet welcoming. From Susan advising us on local events to the Gardner offering our kids local coconuts and bananas. The kids loved the pool and hottub, and we all enjoyed snorkeling and tid pool searching at the local beaches."

  • This house is PERFECT! Exceeded expectations on every front!

    "The Kona Dolphin House is PERFECT! One of our brothers got married in the Captain Cook area and we rented this house for those of us not staying at the house where the wedding would be - so three families with kids plus my dad and step mom all stayed here and had a blast! Breathtaking views, very spacious, well appointed, comfortable - we had everything we needed and some! The pictures on the website do NOT do the place justice. It is SPECTACULAR. Also, the owner is super organized, professional and responsive (an absolute PLEASURE to deal with) and the local manager is easily reachable and very helpful. One of the best vacations ever!"

  • QUIET OASIS

    "We very much enjoyed our stay in this vacation home on the west side of the Big Island! It was nothing fancy, just quaint with a beautiful view of the ocean! It was exactly what we needed after a death in our family forced us to reschedule this vacation. (The owner was very gracious in accommodating our revised plans and did not charge us for the changes.) The property was clean and seemed well-maintained. We especially liked the two separate bedrooms so us parents had a separate room from the kids. And the kids each had their own bed. We were surprised by the catchment water system that they have but were supplied with bottled water for our drinking needs by the owner. Thank you. The hillside community is peaceful and safe. As others mentioned, this house has a steep driveway, so we parked at the end of it and walked down the steps alongside the driveway and then up the steps alongside the house to the front door. The home is far from grocery stores and restaurants but we had planned for that. We absolutely loved the Fruit Stand for most of our grocery needs. The home made a great base for our exploring the island from Kona to the Southern Point to Volcanoes National Park. One note, the pictures made it seem that the kayak for use was a 3 person one, but it is not. It only holds 1 person safely. We did use it a few times. The pebble beach that is at the bottom of the hill in this community is quite nice and a great place to swim, snorkel and kayak. We also made use of the beach chairs and mats and snorkeling gear! One day when we stayed more local, we were thrilled to see a gray seal swim up to a small snorkeling beach in Captain Cook! We would recommend this home to anyone wanting to explore the island, enjoy some peace and quiet and doesn't mind driving for food and supplies."
