Delight in this very inviting, impeccably kept 3035 sq ft home that feels like a private, cozy lodge perched on the slopes of Mauna Loa, is set amid a lush tropical and private setting on 1 acre in the charming and rural neighborhood of Middle Ke'ei Road just 4 miles south of the town of Captain Cook

Your view from the home is a 360 degree green view! Not a rooftop in sight all the way down to the ocean!

This home is situated in a choice location that gives you the luxury of a peaceful, private setting, away from the busyness of life, yet only a short drive to grocery, farmers markets, restaurants, lei stands, galleries, shops, fruit stands, beaches and so much more!

You are only a short drive down quiet meandering roads to world-class snorkeling, diving, kayaking and swimming in some of the Big Island's most beautiful and pristine waters of Kealakekua Bay, Honaunau Bay, Hookena and Ke'ei Beaches.

When staying in our home we also provide all the gear you will need for the day at the beach. Beach chairs and mats, snorkel gear, coolers, water bottles, beach towels. No need to rent this stuff when it is all there for you to use.

About the Owner

We both love to scuba dive and snorkel, and Hawaii has some of the best areas to do just that. Which is why we picked this house. We want other people around the world to enjoy what we have discovered here in Hawaii and enjoy it, and our home, as much as we do.

Hawaiian Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
After renting a house run by a company on Oahu it's so nice to rent a vacation "home" on the big island. Nice artwork, decent furnishing's inside and out and all the extra's you might need like first aid items, hair dryers, tons of cookware and lots of beach towels and snorkeling equipment. The owners were wonderful to deal with throughout the rental process returning my damage deposit promptly after departure. There were eight of us including three kids that often times begged us to go back to the house to swim in the pool and quit our sightseeing! The brand new hot tub was a huge plus as well. The view of the sunset was fabulous and the gardens surrounding the property were amazing as well as the total privacy. The housekeeper couple that maintain it work very hard to keep this whole property impeccable and do a great job of it. Best rental property i have ever rented but i am afraid i set the bar too high with this one because I am now planning a trip to Florida and nothing even compares!

Spacious and private

  • 4 of 5
We recently had the pleasure of spending a week at this spacious property. Tucked away in a tropical location, this house was well equipped and was close to some great sightseeing spots on the big island. We spent a lot of time enjoying the private pool and hot tub and relaxing on the lanai. Nestled amongst beautiful trees and flowers, this property provided an opportunity to get away from it all.

Ours was a small family renunion between Australia and Texas and this was our first time yo rent a vacation home and did we pick a wonderful place to stay!! The house was modern, clean and spacious but still cozy. We enjoyed sitting out on the lanai with a glass of wine, especially at sunset. We were 5 adults and 1 toddler and there was more than enough room for all of us! After a long day out sightseeing/snorkeling/hiking, it was great to come back to the house, we felt very at home and relaxed. The view from the lanai was beautiful, lush foliage, colorful birds and the view down to the ocean was stunning. The pool area was great, with new cabana furniture to lounge on. So much space to spread out, our sons barbecued twice and we also used the snorkeling equipment provided on our trips to the beach! We didn't want for anything, everything was there. We wish we could have stayed another week!!

We travel often and honestly I have never taken the time to write a review. But this home stood out from anywhere we have stayed. When we walked in the entire family said "wow" at the same time! The home was much larger than we had pictured. It was very open in the main living area/kitchen. Each bedroom was more space than we needed. There was plenty of storage and extra supplies. Every room was spotless and beautifully decorated. There was everything and more in the kitchen that we needed. We ate all our meals on the lanai with perfect views of the sunset over the ocean. The pool and hot tub area were perfect. The grounds were secluded and very tropical. The location worked out very well for the areas we visited. We spent a lot of time looking through rental listings and I am sure we found the best! Overall, this was an amazing home that we were all sad to leave.

Great place, really big, very clean, near the best snorkeling spots

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Diana's house for five nights and it was really a great time there. The house was almost better than described, with all very bright and big rooms. We couldn't really use all the space inside. Everything was clean, and regarding spices, dishes, facilities, cleaning utensils and so on, more than everything was available. The lanai was the best. We sat there every evening, ate some fresh tuna and had some beer while watching the sun set over the ocean. The pool and the hot tub were also great - though we just used those only one time. The house is near two very good snorkeling spots where you can start your day before breakfast - looking at the colorful underwater-world of Hawai'i. You can even see some spinner dolphins. Kailua Kona as well as some really nice and quiet beaches are within 30 min drive. Also good restaurants and a really good food store (where we got the tuna).

Summary: Go there. One of the best places I have ever stayed.

Perfect in every way!

This lovely property offered everything we needed: a quiet home at the end of the day; a chance to meet some of the locals; lots of room to spread out and find some privacy; great views; a kitchen that we could really cook in; lots of excellent advice and tips from our gracious hostess Diana. The furniture and beds are comfortable and we went to sleep listening to the songbirds every night. A beautiful place, and we will be back!

From the Owner

When we were looking for homes on the Big Island, this one stood out from the others we looked at. The location was perfect, not to far away from Kona and the beaches, but still has that country feel and the privacy that we were looking for. We were getting tried of the hotel scene, too many people, too much noise and just not the privacy that we were looking for when we vacation. We wanted more of a home feel where we knew we could relax and recharge. And that is exactly what we found here. The lay out of the home and the size of the rooms just had the 'Wow' factor we were looking for. That's actually what we said as soon as we walked in was, 'WOW', so we knew it was for us. We know that you will feel the same way when you walk thru front entry door. We feel at home here, after a long day exploring all that Hawaii has to offer. We love to scuba dive and snorkel, and we are just minutes away from some of the best diving and snorkel sites. And the when you come home there is plenty of room for everyone to relax and hang out, and the pool and hot tub are just the thing to have to make the end of the day great, while watching the sun set over the ocean, which is always so spectacular to see. Truly Paradise!!

From the Owner

The location of the home is perfect! Only a short drive (7-8 minutes) to wonderful pristine waters to snorkel, swim and kayak and in the same amount of time will find grocery, fruit stands, gas, and restaurants. Personally, we have enjoyed the peaceful quality of the neighborhood and home as a sanctuary, far from the busy-ness of the world yet convenient enough to hop in the car to pick up take-out, a movie or even an afternoon latte.
