Lovely house with spectacular ocean and sunset views. Rhonda is very helpful and welcoming. We stayed in the deluxe room with private lanai which was excellent. We would love to have stayed longer. Thanks!

Rhonda's home is amazing, clean, quiet and beautiful down to the very last detail. Rhonda made us feel right at home, gave us loads of tips for snorkeling and she makes an amazing banana bread! Rhonda even upgraded us to the deluxe room! Located right next to the famous Two-Step snorkeling beach overlooking the entire bay.

Rhonda's place was an amazing find - a beautiful house with a room that had everything we needed. Rhonda met us and showed us around, spent a long time giving us tips on where to go on the Big Island and gave us a wonderful choice of breakfasts to start the day with. Also loved her cat Norman! Anybody visiting captain cook should absolutely stay at Rhonda's place if they get the chance!

We were pleased to stay at her house. The rules seemed strict, but they are just normal behaviors any visitors should have. We loved our stay. The view, the rooms, the house is amazing. Rhonda was a perfect host, very kind and we definitely recommand anyone who wants a peaceful place to go there.

Response from Rhonda:
Aloha Luko, I am ecstatic that you stated in your review of your experience at my home in such terms: "The rules seemed strict, but they are just normal behaviors any visitors should have." That is a HUGE challenge for us hosts each and everyday to receive such an honor of acknowledgement and behavior from our guests. Mucho alohas, the pleasure was all mine, and I wish you many wonderful memories of future travels to be enjoyed.

We started a bit awkward (we didn't announce what time we would arrive, were there on check-in time but Rhonda asked us in the previous messages to keep her posted about our arrival time so she could prepare the room and the house) so she was a bit cranky on arrival and asked us to come back 30min later, but afterwards we both apologized and could laugh with it. Overall, we had a great stay, unfortunately for one night... Rhonda is a great host, she likes to talk and give advise/recommendations. She provides everything, bed & beach towels, snorkel gear, breakfast,... The accommodation is just great, with an awesome view, swimming pool, and nice/clean room & bathroom. Respect the house rules, be communicative and this is a great experience. Recommend it to everybody! PS. The banana bread is delicious and we loved Norman, the superfluffy cat.

Rhonda User ProfileRhonda is a superhost.

I have thoroughly enjoyed living on the island of Hawaii since 2002 and selected this destination after extensive traveling which included home exchanges in many countries.

To live everyday in total excitement and contentment with what the day has to offer became my mission.

Water quality and accessibility for swimming was at the top of my priority list.

I thank the Universe each and every day for allowing all of my life dreams, and more than I ever imagined to become a reality.

My passions are swimming, coffee farming, growing tropical fruits, vegetables, and flowers; as well as creating jams, jellies and liqueurs with the fruits of my little farm.

Operating a Guest House on my property became a dream that I am proud to see becoming a part of this reality. I find it a total honor to live on this piece of paradise and feel totally compelled to share. What a fantastic playground!! I believe my success is based upon my guests enjoyment during their holiday. It is my desire to assist each of my guests in experiencing Hawaii in all its glory.

I welcome you to come share my most favored place in the whole wide world.

Today is the Best Day of the Rest of My Life. I welcome you to come make it yours.

I want to thank each and every one of my guests who have written such outstanding reviews on my behalf. Thank you all for your support, encouragement, validation, and your part in my dream coming to fruition with such wonderful memories and experiences. It has been my total honor and pleasure to have shared such good times and experiences with each and every one of you. I am in great anticipation of others to share the same and even better.
