Tucked away from crowds, close to beaches, cool spot
We stayed here the second part of our trip after spending a few nights in Volcano and around the Hilo side. If you want to be away touristy areas, this is the place to be. It is a short drive to beaches, snorkeling, kayaking, Kona. There is a small grocery store nearby and restaurant options also a short drive away.
Check out two step for great snorkeling and rent a kayak (lots of dolphins and turtles in the nearby bays). Beach and snorkel gear here if you don't bring your own. This spot was well stocked if you plan on cooking. The grounds are beautiful and this spot was clean, comfortable and cozy. Loved the screened in lanai to help keep out the bugs. If you haven't been to Hawaii before, don't be alarmed of the geckos inside... they will help catch the bugs. Use the fans and keep the windows open for a nice breeze. We were entertained by the duck who came to hang out with us each day :).
Overall great spot, tucked away in the hillside. So close, but just far enough away, just like the title suggests. Would recommend this spot and will be back again.
WOW, beautiful review! Makes me want to watch your travel show.
Take care, visit anytime.
Dreamy Hawaiian Cottage
Simple cottage with large lanai. Beautiful grounds, with mango trees, orchids and a profusion of flowers, plus a view of the bay. Quiet but not far from beaches, market and local restaurants. If you are there on a Sunday, go to the Captain Cook farmers market. Not fancy, but peaceful and beautiful.
Out of the way
My wife and I loved our stay! Out of the way of the busy resort areas, quiet and peaceful. Thanks Charles for your hospitality!
Beautiful beyond imagining
Great little house
Beautiful setting and views. Very quiet. A quick drive to two-step. The only negative is that there is no dryer so if you don't have time to dry your swim gear on the clothesline (or it rains) you may have to pack wet stuff.
Hope you had a relax full visit. I think i would look at it as, the rain is a blessing, and the clothes will dry. Take care Aloha
Lovely cottage at Kaelakekua Bay
Perfect for a romantic getaway! Close to Kealakekua Bay and two steps . For the best snorkling experience ( dolphins , amazing fishes and turtels)
