My husband and I were making a last minute trip to the Big Island for the first time. We wanted to spend a little over a week in the Captain Cook area. This is a more laid-back part of the island, with coffee farms, several local businesses and delicious local produce.

The self-contained unit is very homey and comfortable, with a king-size bed, full shower bath, huge living room and nice large kitchen. While Rhonda mentioned that this is not a B&B, we were greeted personally, given the grand tour of the apartment, and provided with mango nectar, fresh mini-loaves of banana and zucchini bread in the fridge. And plenty of fresh ground Kona coffee in the pantry!

She also shared with us with a book of local sites and points of interest, while cautioning us as to some recent volcano accidents. Rhonda provides a varied selection of snorkel /fin equipment to use during your stay.

The pool is lovely--unheated at the moment, but soon to be heated and renovated...

Management response:

Thank you Shelley and Marc, I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay!

We have mixed reviews for this downstairs unit. Most likely because we got off to a bad start with abrupt email conversations with Rhonda prior to our arrival. It left us feeling uncomfortable around her and felt that she was not very welcoming, Our apprehensions were reinforced when we arrived and she spent most of the time complaining about her upcoming and current renters, with nothing positive to say about them.

Nonetheless, the house is in a very nice location if you want to enjoy the southern beaches Ho'kena, Honaunau - Two Steps, and KBay. It is very close to the main Highway 11, Less than one minute from the main road so you DO hear all the road noise..

The downstairs unit was very large and easily accommodated the two of us. Kitchen was very well-equipped with everything that you need to cook meals. It was also nice to have a plentiful supply of bathroom towels and beach towels along with a washer and dryer to use (for use only with a minimum...

Management response:

I agree this was a difficult couple to host. From the onset they were attempting to book through two different platforms with separate names and different dates. They were already visiting on island prior to their reservation and kept insisting that they be allowed to arrive earlier than the stated check-in time. I repeatedly replied I had a check-out that...
