The pictures don't do it justice, our guests say. Nicely surprised when they walk in.
This property is an ideal couple getaway for any occasion. It is secluded on an old coffee plantation above Kealakekua Bay, with a dramatic sweeping ocean view of the coastline to the south. Kealakekua Bay is renowned for its terrific marine life.
You can kayak, hike, or horseback ride to the Captain Cook Monument on beautiful Kealakekua Bay. Escape the noise and traffic of Kona, stay at The Captain's Suite located just a six minute drive from Kealakekua Bay also located in the historic and rural agricultural district of Captain Cook.
This property located above Kealakekua Bay and the Place of Refuge is a great place from which to explore the rest of the Island and then return home to your own private quiet hideaway. Snorkel Kealakekua Bay, visit the Place of Refuge State Park, take a day trip to Volcanoes National Park and the East side of the Island, visit the rain forest, beautiful Waipio Valley and a whole lot more.
The many tropical flowers, trees, and fruits on the property offer a delight to the nature lover.

We purchased this property in 1988. We built the main house and carport.
In 2000 we enclosed the garage and added two units to our 1 acre property.
We loved the large stand of bamboo, so it was a focal point in the design of the jetted tub for the Captain's Suite.
To achieve the feel of the outside we built large screened lanai's and double sliders and windows to let in light and the views of water, flora and fauna. However always with privacy in mind. Each unit has its own parking area close to the front door.

This property is in the beautiful coffee belt of Hawaii. Green and lush with beautiful
ocean views. We love the tropical plants and animal life here. Birds and gecko's alike love the papaya and bananas. Turkeys and pigs roam the macadamia orchids beside us, as well and below us. We also have a small shopping center that provides a grocery store, hardware store and post office just up to the hwy and to the North.
We don't get any hwy noise unless a siren occasionally, from police or ambulance.
We love the rural-ness of the location, yet the convenience of a grocery store and hardware store.
It's only a 15 min. drive to Keauhou Shopping Center where you'll find restaurants, grocery store, shops and movie theater.
Also only about 12 min. down to Two Step for snorkeling and kayaking.
Many coffee farms and macadamia farms to visit and a must visit is the Japanese
living coffee farm. Several very good restaurants here in the area as well as fresh fish as the local market and fish market. Sundays is the local outdoor market just down the road.
This evening marks our 12th sunset on the islands--5 on Big and 7 in Kaua'i. It is hard to imagine a more opportune location for a sunset than this, Last evening - the Winter's Solstice - the sun fell into the Pacific on a clear horizon illuminating a clouded band above, with a fiery glow that would make Pele proud. The sun this evening looks to promise another dazzling show. Tomorrow we return to Hilo and then begin our journey home to Atlantic Canada, the close of a wonderful vacation that included swimming with sea turtles and cruising the Napal'i coast. Much to remember including this fine suite and lanai. The gecko's were a treat to watch scamper about and munch on insects out by the barbecue light. We're very happy with this location, as it proved to be both a great launch point for west-side dy trips and for ond day off doing absolutely nothing in particular. Mahalo! Bill & Gail
Was exactly what I hoped it would be. Lovely, tranquil place. So comfortable and with everything we needed.
We thoroughly enjoyed the Captain's Suite. What a treat to enjoy my morning coffee overlooking the Pacific. Bed was very comfortable and plenty of room in the apartment for two. We especially enjoyed the large bathroom. If you want to get away from the bustle of the beaches and sample the flavor of old Hawaii, this is the place for you. We loved touring the nearby coffee plantations, exploring the site of old Hawaiian royalty, and snorkeling/kayaking in the nearby bay. A memorable visit!
This cottage is amazing. From the fantastic stone tile lined double shower bathroom, with the corner jetted tub that has a great view. the cottage is located on a hillside over looking the ocean shoreline and the tropical village below. Huge bamboo and tropical foliage blocks your view of any other neighboring homes. The lane coming in is lined with banana trees along with coconut palms trees and many other tropical fruits and plants that make you feel you are in the jungle. The screened lanai becomes part of your living space for relaxing, dining and enjoying the view. This is a get away from it all. A modern Hawaiian cottage located on a private piece of paradise.
I know it sounds trite to say the 'The Pictures do not do it Justice', however it is just that simple - 'The Pictures do not do it Justice'. Our stay of 4 nights was just great and the suite and the hosts could not have been better. Captain Cook is ideally situated to explore the West Side of the Island - close to everything but nicely isolated. We had just come from a couple of weeks in Maui and the as nice as Maui is, and it is great we just found ourselves unwinding and relaxing. The suite had everything we could imagine. If you stay there, you have to try the Coffee Shack for Breakfast or Lunch.
Renowned Kealakekua Bay and Place of Refuge National Park are just below this unique property. A short 12 min. drive will put you at the waters edge. Kayak over the the Captain Cook monument, have lunch and snorkel along the coast line for unbelievable views of beautiful fish, eels, turtles and frolicking dolphins if your lucky.
Visit a coffee farm, botanical garden and have dinner at the renowned Keei Cafe.
