traveler reviews for this captain cook house rental

Amazing, private home

Review submitted: July 11, 2013   Date of arrival: June 21, 2013

We stayed at the Pineapple Express for 10 days and we LOVED every minute of our time at the house. The size of the home was perfect for the two of us, with just enough space for everything we needed/wanted to do. They have everything you need from cookware, to beach gear. We packed the beach chairs and snorkel gear with us in the car every day! The neighborhood is very quiet and private, which made our vacation very pleasurable. The beach below the home, Honomalino Bay was by far the most relaxing, private beach we've been to. It's a bit of a hike into the beach, but definitely well worth all the work. I'd recommend packing a cooler/lunch/chairs/snorkel gear with you so you can enjoy it all day like we did! The hot tub was another treat after a long day at the beach/in the sun. We cooked many of our meals at home, which was a great option for us instead of driving the hour into Kailua-Kona for dinner every night. We shopped at Costco when we arrived on the island and stopped at Safeway for everything else we needed. We ate breakfast every morning on the lanai, overlooking the ocean. The only thing I'd complain about was the mosquitos, but with some bug spray and the citronella candle on the table outside you should be fine.
We truly enjoyed every second we spent here and when we return to the Big Island, I hope we can return to the Pineapple Express! Thank you for everything, it was perfect!

Outstanding Vacation Home

Review submitted: May 4, 2014   Date of arrival: April 25, 2014

We stayed here for a week and were sad to leave. This house is immaculate and perfect for two people. The owners are very responsive to any needs or questions. They welcomed us with a fresh pineapple waiting in the kitchen, which tasted so good we ate two more while we stayed there. It's located between Kona and Volcano in a quiet serene area. A very short drive will get you to Miloli'i beach and a short walk along a trail leads you to one of our favorite uncrowded beaches on the island, Honomalino. There is a good chance of seeing spinner dolphins early in the morning at Honomalino. The grill, washer/dryer, hot tub, and beautiful ocean view sunsets make this house a perfect get away. There are plenty of local food recommendations in a folder on the coffee table, The Coffee Shack being our favorite. The house is one of those places that you're happy to come back to at the end of a long day of exploring on the island. Definitely a home away from home. I highly recommend this house.

We loved it!!!

Review submitted: March 15, 2014   Date of arrival: February 24, 2014

We loved the Pineapple Express Cottage. The facilities had everything we wanted (hot tub, gas grill, full kitchen, ceiling fans, cable TV and internet) and was far enough away from the heavy tourist areas to provide a slow paced, quiet atmosphere. Yet it was only a short drive to some nice public beaches and about 50-minutes to Volcano NP. The sunsets from the porch every evening were a real treat. You can't go wrong with this rental.
