“Breathtaking Oceanviews from Makalani Cottage!”
"Breathtaking Oceanviews from Makalani Cottage!” Makalani Cottage in Captain Cook is a truly authentic Hawaii experience with breathtaking views of the ocean! Harry was such a wonderful host and was very thorough with the booking process, he definitely made everything very easy, fast & pleasant. Once we arrived in Kailua Kona, we hopped into our car rental and headed from Kona airport to Makalani Cottage with very detail directions provided to us by Harry. We pulled up into the driveway and down a hill into Harry's beautifully kept property. We right away noticed all the flora and fauna throughout and immediately had that WOW moment when we saw the two beach chairs overlooking the big, beautiful ocean! The cottage is very tastefully decorated, with beautiful furniture and all the amenities you need to make your stay the best you could ever ask for. Harry greeted us with a beautiful welcoming note and an Island bouquet which was such a nice gesture to walk into. The kitchen is fully equipped, and it had everything we needed to make tasty meals. It was so much fun exprimenting with The Big Islands amazing organic fruits and veggies locally grown by farmers on the Island. We created some culinary favorites, surrounded by nature and geckos all around. The cottage was my dream come true it almost felt like I was in a treehouse! We thoroughly felt renewed and refreshed with a good nights rest on the big beautiful bed that was insect proof! Please note don't forget your bug spray there are mosquitos in Hawaii and you will need some. My boyfriend and I also loved the outdoor shower overlooking the coffee trees growing on property, it was a pleasure taking a hot bath in nature. Last but not least Harry ace'd it with the meditation room which has a swing overlooking the ocean and an extra little bed! The whole experience was a truly unique experience that steers you away from the tourist areas where you can truly get a feel of the real Hawaii. Harry suggested we go to the Punalu'u bakery which had amazing Malasadas, he also gave us endless suggestions on beaches and sites that were truly amazing. The cottage is well appointed and the drive to the Volcanos National Park & Hilo was very pleasant since you really don't feel the time because your intaking picturesque views. Thank you Harry for such a wonderful experience and for being an amazing host! We will be back soon to enjoy your piece of heaven again! It was such a pleasure to meet somebody from AII :) !!!!

My husband and I stayed at this enchanting cottage for 10 days. I have to say I can not remember a time that we enjoyed ourselves more. Harry was awsome and very informative. The cottage had everything we needed and more. Harry had thought of everything from an Ice chest to snorkeling gear and more which was at our disposal. There were books about the island and maps and even suggestions on restaurants and grocery stores. I honestly can not think of one thing he has forgotten. The location is centrally located which made it easy for us to take a day trip and still be able to make it home before dark. We would definately stay here again and hope to very soon. Thank you Harry and we hope to see you again soon. Samih and Anita from Oklahoma
I cannot say enough about how happy I was when I arrived here. This place captures the beauty and serenity of the island with it's landscaping and views. The main cottage is complete in everything you could need. A wonderfully stocked kitchen down to spices for cooking. Fresh flowers, a fruit basket, and a handwritten welcome note greet you when you arrive. The bed in the main cottage is not only beautiful, but comfortable. The detached bedroom down the path is as well. And it has it's own porch and view. The bath is wonderful. Coming from the cold winter in pa and being able to be 'outside' as you shower was so very refreshing. All the attention to detail in the architecture and decorating gives this rental so much charisma. If you are looking for a resort, this is not it. If you are looking for a charming, authentic, comfortable place to experience the island...this is. Harry is unobtrusive, but is there if you need anything. This is a great place for a small family or two couples. I don't think it would be suitable for small children though. I know I will stay here again when I return to the Big Island.
