    Hawaii> Captain Cook
    • 3 bedroom
    • 2 bathroom
    • Sleeps 12

    "Pathway of the Gods" is the meaning of the name given by ancient Hawaiians to Kealakekua Bay. Five hundred feet from the bay, nestled among the palm trees and fragrant plumeria blossoms is Hale Hanai, the site of your next vacation. Let us "Big Isle" you!

    This two-story vacation rental home will give you a taste of old Hawaii, away from the crowds, with a large private yard abounding in fragrant flowers, bananas, and coconuts. Designed with a family in mind, Hale Hanai would love to be your home-away-from-home. 'Hanai' is a word Hawaiians use to designate adopted family. When you stay with us, you are our adopted family.

    Upstairs, Mom and Dad can relax and enjoy their own private living room with views of the bay. The Alii (royalty) room is furnished with a California King bamboo canopy bed, a seating area, and a lanai from which to view some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. There is a fully-equipped kitchen and a dining room with a table that seats eight, as well as a china hutch with dishes for that special meal.

    Downstairs the kids have their own living area, with another television and games and toys. Equipped with a small dining table, they have their own space to enjoy a snack. The Dolphin Room has a queen-size bed and is perfect to accommodate Grandma and Grandpa or a married child and spouse. The built-in daybed is wonderful for a younger child, and it also makes a great place to sit and enjoy a book while the ocean breezes rustle the curtains and wash your cares away. There is even a portable crib ready for a napping baby, if needed. The Volcano Room sports a double bed and the decor has been heavily influenced by Madame Pele, the goddess of fire. The Captain Cook Quarters has a twin-size daybed. Two queen-size sleeper sofas (one upstairs, one down) round out the sleeping arrangements.

    Across the bay is the historic Captain Cook monument that marks the place where the famous explorer met his untimely end. Spinner Dolphins visit the bay daily, and there is unparalleled snorkeling in this marine sanctuary. After a day of sightseeing or kayaking in the bay, the outdoor shower will wash away the sand. The barbeque awaits, as you dine outdoors on the picnic table as the sun sets on another perfect day in paradise.

    Please note that we have a two-week minimum policy for bookings during the Christmas holidays, from December 15 to January 1.

    We rented the whole house for 2 weeks at Christmas for a family Christmas - 8 adults and 2 children. It was great! Susan added so many nice touches - decorated for Christmas, all the towels and linens we could possibly want, cleaning supplies, toys and dvds for the kids, snorkeling gear, etc. It was our home away from home. We loved walking to the bay each morning to swim with the dolphins. Place of Refuge was only 5 miles away - a great place to visit with a beach right there where we snorkeled with big sea turtles and tide pools for the kids to play in. We were within 15 minutes of some great restaurants - Patz Pies, Coffee Shack, Rebel Kitchen, Sun Dried - to name a few. Also, we were within 40 minutes or less of other beaches, the marina to charter fishing trips and more. If you want fancy with air conditioning and pools - this is not for you. But if you want a nice comfy home from which you can plan your daily adventures and come back to relax at, then this home is a great value! I will be recommending Hale Hanai to my friends and family.

    Our group of 4 rented the downstairs unit for 1week. We enjoyed the proximity to the Bay for kayaking and snorkeling. Local area hill running was great. Mrs. Curtis was very helpful in getting us set up with the kitchenware requested. The place was clean with plenty of beach and bathing towels. Would stay here again.

    In a life of roaming the world, my wife and I have stayed in a hundred guest houses. This is one of the best. Big and comfortable, yet open to the Hawaiian breezes, it is just steps from a little village around an historic bay. We kayaked across the bay with visits from dolphins, whales and a manta ray. There was lots of room for family and friends too. You are going to love this place.

    Far enough from traffic and bustle to allow relaxation, but close enough to experience all that Hawaii has to offer. Short walk takes you and your coffee to the ocean to watch dolphins.

    We loved this rental for our family of four, though we could have doubled our numbers and been comfortable. We like being away from the hustle and bustle of condos and all that, so this was perfect for us. You are a quick walk to a gorgeous bay. Minutes drive to the best snorkeling on the island. An hour-ish drive to other fantastic beaches up and down the coast. The top floor feels like you are in the tree-tops.
