“Meticulously Kept Property, Warm Hospitality”

This is a beautiful location and home to spend some time on the Big Island. Unfortunately, our stay was only for one night, but we will certainly book here for our next visit. Rhonda, the owner, is a really sweet woman who works SO hard to keep her home immaculate for her guests. She pays attention to every single detail. She even spent a good 45 min or so with us when we arrived, helping us get acquainted with the best spots for snorkeling in the area and showing us around her property. Moreover, this place is a great value. You get breakfast included (and free rein of the kitchen), beach towels and snorkel gear (which can be pricey to rent) and there's a gorgeous pool overlooking the garden if you just feel like lounging by the pool. The wrap-around balcony has lovely views of the ocean and surrounding hillside - my husband and I really liked our room, which had direct access to the balcony, so we could sit out and enjoy the sunset and a beer (mini-fridges are in the rooms too!). Another thing to note, Rhonda makes a KILLER banana bread and other tasty baked goods, which she puts out for her guests to have with their breakfast. She probably won't be thrilled that I'm sharing this, but she had an extra loaf of her banana bread that she handed us to take on the road as we were leaving - just out of the blue! We were so touched by that. Of course, that's not something she can do for all the guests that come through, but I just wanted to highlight this as an example of the warm hospitality and level of service that you'll experience at this B&B/vacation rental.

We stayed in several b & b s this trip & this was hands down the best. The room & house were amazingly comfortable & Rhonda is a welcoming host who thought of every detail. Location was close to great beaches & snorkeling. Highly recommend!!!!!!

Views of the ocean are spectacular . Hostess was so friendly and knowledgable of the local beaches and sites to see. Other guests were a delight. Our room was inviting, as well as the other accommodations. Plan to stay again in the future

“Captain cook retreat”

Had a good few days staying with Rhonda in her beautiful B&B. Our luggage took a few days to arrive and she was very accommodating to make sure we had everything we needed in the meantime. The breakfast selection was great (especially the coconut pie) and was lovely to eat it on the terrace with the sea view and the geckos.

Would recommend the walk to the Captain Cook monument to those with good foot wear and happy for an early start to miss the midday sun (7am for us!).

Loved having a balcony with our room! The bed was extremely comfortable. I miss the homemade banana bread & all the fresh fruit and avocados from your garden! Thanks for all the tips on the places we wanted to go. We loved that we could stay so close to family (they live downstairs) We had an amazing vacation & would definitely stay there again!
