We visited the Big Island with another family and we absolutely fell in love with this house. This amazing property is situated in a very quaint location, just a short drive from Kona and all of its attractions. Great restaurants and shopping centers are all close by and convenient to the home. The pictures of this home are just the...

What an amazing house with awesome views. The pictures are not as nice as the actual views you will see from the balconies. If you want to feel like you are in Hawaii then I recommend you stay here! We visited with our 2 kids and another couple and still had plenty of room. Thank you!!

About the neighbourhood
Pu’uhonua House is located approximately 25 minutes south of Kona airport and approximately 90 minutes north of Volcano National Park in the town of CaptainCook. Our home sits above beautiful Kealakekua Bay ( location of the famous Captain Cook monument ) and City of Refuge state park. It is approximately a 10 minute drive to either of these locations from the house. We also have several local beaches a short drive from the house as well ( Mannini, Keei, Hookena and
Two Step ). We are fortunate to have some great restaurants, a local grocery store ( with a large organic selection ) and many local shops and galleries within minutes from the house.
On a peaceful, private one acre lot at about 1400 ft. in elevation ( perfect climate - not too hot ), close to town and a great place for day t...
