This private, secluded and charming Old Hawaii style Ohana (family dwelling) is 5 minutes from beautiful Kealakekua Bay, Manini Beach, and Keei Beach. The bay is famous for its incredible snorkeling, standup paddling, kayaking and opportunities to swim with the local pod of spinner dolphins.
The cottage has a queen-size bed, a well appointed kitchen, gas barbeque, covered lanai and sweeping views of the south Kona coastline. The full bathroom offers a shower overlooking Kealakekua Bay and the Captain Cook monument. Along with charming Old Hawaii ambiance, enjoy the modest conveniences of hard line internet, and flat screen TV with DVD player. The cottage is surrounded by a lush tropical garden including palm, mango, papaya, avocado, banana, and citrus trees along with many exotic flowering Hawaiian plants.
This property is well located, close to the beach and within minutes to shopping and restaurants, including a grocery store that carries many local and organic options, plus a weekly farmers market. Within walking distance is the Paleaku Peace Garden where guests can take yoga classes or spend a quiet meditative afternoon. Nearby also is the historic Painted Church and City of Refuge at Honaunau.
There are many hiking opportunities and local beaches waiting to be explored in this rural Kona neighborhood. Tandem ocean kayak is available on site as well, with lots of local knowledge as to the little known hot spots of this South Kona community.
We look forward to welcoming you to this Kona Coast power spot where you will experience the true Aloha spirit of Hawaii.

Just wonderful! A time on the big island I will cherish forever, peaceful, zen and like a magic little bird house with all the amenities thought out! Glamping at its best Thank you Peter
We got a chance to come to the Captain Cook area and were fortunate enough to stay at the amazing Kealakekua Bay Cottage, with the million dollar views from each window, can't be beat anywhere!! Peter was a perfect host and he has put a lot of love and attention into the surroundings and magical lodging experience. You will not be disappointed.
The Captain Cook area on the Big Island is the perfect place to stay. We have explored the whole island and fell in love with this location.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This was our second stay with Peter and Barbara and it never disappoints. It exudes Hawaiian charm. We love the lanai, shaded with lovely views. Peter, as always, was attentive and gracious throughout. He's a master gardener and those with an interest in horticulture and tropical plants will truly appreciate the setting (which just keeps getting better). Peter even made sure that I had access to a Big Screen TV for the NFC championship game. Having grown up in Seattle, and as a long-time Seahawks fan, this was a game I didn't want to miss. So thank you Peter! We will definitely book this ohana again next time we get back to Big Island.
This is a amazing lanai with all you need for you stay.The fiew was unbelievable also from the bathroom!! We highly recommend this place!! Peter is a very friendly and helpful host.Thanks again!!
We had an amazing 4-night stay in Peter's cottage. The views were stunning and private. The pace was very laid-back and non-touristy -we snorkeled at the many near-by beaches, visited coffee and nut farms, grilled fish and local vegs on the deck and settled-in to watch movies from Peter's impressive DVD library. Peter was a warm and communicative host. We can't wait to return someday.
We came to Big Island to get off the tourist track and the cottage in Captain Cook was perfect. A good ten miles from the edges of the resort town, it is off a very steep but paved road halfway down to the bay with little beaches visited by locals and a few tourists. Peter was a great host--friendly and a great source of information, who let us borrow snorkelling gear (it was my first time) and rent the kayak for a very reasonable price. The cottage was charming--no windows just screens (even in the pouring rain, no water got in. It was also warn, clean and comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen and big lanai with a BBQ. It has as stunning view of the bay and the undeveloped trust lands below. We loved that a little gecko popped in every evening to catch little bugs in a window frame! This is our first choice the next opportunity we get to come back to Big Island!
We had an amazing stay! The place is fantastic and offers great views from every room and angle providing that real Hawaii feel. The place comes with everything you need and is very clean and well decorated. Above all Peter was a great and friendly host who gave us great suggestions on places to see and some local flavor locations
Loved it. Very well run. Had everything we needed.
This was the perfect place for our December honeymoon! The cottage is even more beautiful and charming than the pictures. All the windows and doors are just screen, which makes for a wonderful outdoor feel, while still being pleasantly clean, bug-free, and private. We loved eating breakfasts and dinners on the lanai to beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Peter and Barbara were wonderful hosts - so friendly and helpful. We rented their kayak and also used their boogie boards and flippers. We spent much of our time snorkeling down in Kealakekua Bay which is an absolutely magical place. Peter and Barbara's property is in a prime location, the cottage is charming, and the hosts wonderful warm people. We couldn't have been happier with our choice.
