Recent Captain Cook reviews

  • Great for families!

    "We were a group of 3 adults and 4 children under the age of 3 (!). Susan was so kind and accommodating. Because we were set to fly from Oahu the day the second of two hurricanes (!) was in the area she offered to let us check-in a day early at no charge. We ended up not needing to change our plans, but I thought it was a very generous offer. She also left out age appropriate movies and toys and a portable crib, big hit with the kiddos and parents. The house is very well equipped - it has everything you could need in the kitchen, lots of cleaning supplies (a must with young children), a ton of towels, beach supplies etc. Pictures and description are very accurate. It was very warm when we were there in early September, two of our nights it cooled off nicely but one was pretty uncomfortable. The house does come with a ton of fans. There is a little beach within easy walking distance and you could kayak to the Cook memorial, we saw dolphins one morning. Since we have such little kids we drove to nearby Two-Step for swimming, perfect tide pools for kiddos. In short, great place for families!"

  • Beautiful house/setting, easily accommodated group of 8

    "The pictures of this place do not do it justice. When you drive down the long, very steep and windy road to get here you wonder what you are getting yourself into and then you open the door to this beautifully decorated house (reminded me of what I would imagine an expat house in India looks like) with views of the ocean from the dining room, kitchen, and one of the bedrooms, lanais everywhere, a hot tub, a hammock...it is amazing. We were a family of 8 - 2 little kids (5,9), 3 grandparents, and 3 adults. The house easily accommodated us sleeping wise and never felt crowded. It was clean and well stocked. My kids loved being a hop away from the pebble beach and played in the waves almost every day. We walked to the black sand beach once but my kids liked the pebble beach the best. The crater rim hike leaving from the pebble beach is nice (fyi, 7:45 is too late to start - hot and no shade!). The house is nicely situated for sightseeing in S. Kona - we went to the kula kai caverns, volcano national park, and the place of refuge. If you aren't a vegetarian, be sure to get some local grass fed beef and shaved ice from the Kealia ranch store. Check out the smoothies and baked goods (and great guacamole) at the S. Kona fruit stand. The only word of caution/thing I wish we did more of was plan our food a little better. This house is a little off the beaten path - an hour from Costco (and the airport), 30 min in either direction for groceries, and 15-20 min from restaurants. So if you can get most of your groceries for your stay on you way in definitely do that and then supplement here and there (there is a nice farmers market on Sun in Capt. Cook). We planned day by day and that wasn't really ideal for us. You could easily come to this house for a week and never go anywhere else - you have an amazing house, easy access to 2 beaches, hiking - or you can use it as a nice base and travel around the island. We didn't have a chance to meet Deanna in person but she was extremely responsive over email."

  • Look no further !

    "WE STAYED HERE FOR 7 nights! It was the perfect location for our needs. We were visiting our daughter and granddaughter who live in the area. They would come everyday and spend time with us at this 'gem' of a house! I agree with the other reviews about the pictures on the website. It is even more impressive in person! Thanks again to Candi for her quick response and all her hard work in making our stay so enjoyable . We would definitely stay her again👏👏🎈"

  • Just what we needed

    "The privacy and rural location of the property was just what we needed. The house is roomy and the ourdoor space relaxing. We enjoyed both the pool and hot tub. The rental process was smooth and hassel-free. Thank you Sally!"
