Additional GUEST BOOK reviews under Owner Info.

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.

The tropical style of the 'Captains Suite' is pleasing to our guests. It is situated privately just north of the main house, and it also has a 180-degree sweeping ocean view.

The Captain's Suite has private parking close to its own double-door entry, which opens to raja slate floors throughout.

Other special features include granite counter tops, a full bath with double sinks, a double walk-in shower, and two person jetted tub, which is privately situated to enjoy swaying bamboo, nature and coastline view.

Additional amenities include cooking facilities, a dishwasher, a refrigerator, filtered water, a King-size bed, an kitchen island, a lounge area, free laundry facilities (separate from the main house, soap & softener incl.), ironing board & iron, bath robes, (Bring your own slippers), paper towels, TP, baggies, wax paper, foil, coffee filters, salt & pepper & sugar.

Beach towels, mats, beach chairs and coolers provided. These accommodations are equipped with everything you'll need for a comfortable stay, including abundant storage, a coffee grinder, cable TV, a DVD, and a CD player. Entry is at ground level with no steps. However, the rental is not otherwise handicapped equipped.

This is a smoke-free environment for your enjoyment. Sorry, no pets.

About Nancy

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.

Nancy purchased this apartment in 1988

Why Nancy chose Captain Cook

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.

We moved to the Big Island in 1987 and built our home in Captain Cook in1988.

We added our two vacation rentals on our 1 1/4 property in 2000.

Greg is a realtor with Clark Realty Corp. and I ( Nancy ), manage our two vacation rentals. We have one dog. His name is Peaberry and is 7.

Along with a Siamese cat named Mr. Mow, who is 15.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

The property is amazing...perfect in almost every way

  • 5 of 5

We loved it..its basically your own small hideaway on a beautiful property with spectacular views.. why would anyone want to pay 2x as much at a hotel and have to be around the chaos of tourists and everything else? There are so many sites to see on this island and almost none of them are at the local hotels _You will find all your beach gear including snorkeling,boogie boards,chairs, umbrellas, coolers and towels waiting for u..just load up and head out and explore the island.. our next trip to Kona we will definitely come back and stay here! Andy and Caroline

We loved our stay! It was peaceful, quiet, very relaxing. The

property itself, both inside and out, was very attractive and

comfortable. We found the view from the huge deck to be

absolutely amazing. Gorgeous scenery! Hope we can return sometime and enjoy the experience again. It was wonderful!!

Worth the trip from Maine!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Captain's Suite! The view of the ocean is amazing and the entire suite is both beautiful and comfortable at the same time (and very clean). I enjoyed driving in to the incredible gardens and sitting on the lanai, drinking Kona coffee , gazing at the Kealakekua Bay and listening to the birds .......it is something I will never forget. A special thank you to our very kind hosts who helped us when our rental car battery died.........and please give Peaberry an extra pat from us. Thank you!

Amazing view and peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Greg & Nancy's vacation home for 6 nights and loved every minute of it. The home is beautifully kept, very clean and has everything you need to cook, relax and be comfortable. The view is wonderful and loved the sounds of the birds, frogs and just being in nature. We will definitely be back! Thank you!

Spectacular View and Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

The view was better than you could get at a five star hotel. The home was absolutely gorgeous, meticulously clean, and basically took our breath away as we walked in and saw the view, the beautiful design of the home, as well as the immediate surroundings. Close to great spots in south Kona area. Would definitely recommend. Frogs a bit noisy at night but you get used to them.

Map

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.
