Such a wonderful experience that we can live in the house with beautiful view. It is quite with good view. And the people are really warm hearted and shared us a lot of suggestion. Highly recommended.

Well once again this house did not disappoint! This is our 2nd time staying here and we are already beginning to start planning our 3rd trip. Beautiful doesn't even begin to describe this place. The views of the ocean are amazing. The sunsets and sunrises are the most beautiful I've ever seen. The house is kept very clean and has...

Cheryl's home south of Captain Cook is beautifully decorated and well supplied with everything you could need for an enjoyable stay on the Big Island. She certainly has thought of everything. We settled in to 'home' right away and a couple of ladies in our group chose to stay there and just relax it was so comfortable. It was great...

About the neighborhood
88-1555 Elima Avenue, Milolii (Captain Cook), South Kona, Big Island of Hawaii

From Kona airport go south on Highway 11 towards Kailua and continue on towards the 89 mile marker, turn right on Milolii Road. Go about three miles, turn right on to Ewalu Avenue drive down the road to Waenea Avenue turn left. Drive to third intersection which is Elima Avenue, turn right and go a half block to a tan house left hand side which is 88-1555.It takes 11 minutes to descend from 1500 feet to sea level- road is curvy but has a panoramic ocean view- one of my favorite on the whole Big island.

From Hilo airport go on Highway 11 north for about two hours till you come to the sign that reads Milolii. Turn left by the sign drive three miles down the road to Ewalu Avenue, turn right drive down to the stop...
Getting around
Aloha discount car rental is a good rental company to use. You can call them or deal with them on line. For 4 wheel drive you can rent a car from Harpers fro a day but it is pricey like 160 to 180 a day.

How to get there
Airport: Kona: 21.1 mi
It takes a good hour and ten minutes south of the airport to get there depending on traffic. There are a few markets - produce along the way where you can stop and get papayas... In Kona there is Walmart, Safeway, and on the way down there is Choicemart. By the airport is Costco. You could do Honaunau or the Tiki village on the way down or snorkel at two step which is by the Tiki village. You pass the coffee shack on the right but it closes at 3.
Activities nearby
Fishing Nearby, Nearest Beach: 5.0 mi.
