The space

Makalani (Heavenly View) Cottage is a delightfully romantic cottage surrounded by a tropical garden in South Kona's coffee-belt with a breathtaking panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. For the adventurous traveler seeking authentic Hawaiian beauty and serenity, you can spend your whole vacation here gazing out over the endless ocean and its incredible sunsets. In the winter, you can spot whales breaching from your outdoor lanai or listen to them singing at night. Awaken to the music of colorful birdsong from papaya, mango and banana trees.

With a perfect year-round climate, perched at 1200 ft. above the sea on the side of Mauna Loa Volcano, Makalani Oceanview Cottage is authentic Hawai'i unspoiled by crowds and resorts. A great location that gives you many options for experiencing The Big Island's natural diversity. From your cottage you are just 4-minutes from the closest beach and 15-minutes to Ho'okena Beach State Park for sunbathing and swimming with dolphins. A 20-minute drive brings you to the famous Pu'uhonua o'Honaunau (Place of Refuge) National Historic Park and Kealakekua Bay where you can kayak to Captain Cook's monument and snorkel with an endless variety of tropical fish and sea turtles. And best of all, you're only 65-minutes from Madame Pele's live action at Volcanos National Park.

Your cottage is tastefully appointed with Indonesian teak furniture providing a romantic comfort reminiscent of Colonial British tropics. Your large open-room (studio) cottage sleeps two luxuriously with a romantic king-size canopy-bed with a memory-foam mattress fit for royalty. There is also a convertible couch-futon which can comfortably sleep two additional guests. You'll have a fully-equipped kitchen as well as dining area for four. A large outdoor lanai with barbeque gives you garden seating with a stunning ocean view. Your detached private bathroom with semi- outdoor shower will provide a refreshing Hawaiian experience with nature.

There is also a detached guestroom/meditation room available which is set in a grove of mango trees overlooking the ocean, called the 'Mango Grove Lookout'. It has a sofa-futon which can comfortably sleep one or two people. Serene and magical, this special extra-room provides daytime privacy as well as an intimate camp-like Hawaiian sleeping experience.

Managed with aloha spirit, Makalani Oceanview Cottage is the perfect vacation/retreat cottage where you'll find yourself surrounded by the natural beauty of Hawaii.
We hope your stay here will be the first of many happy vacations to South Kona and this beautiful island of Hawaii.

Delightful, unique and tropical hide-a-way south of Captain Cook with a black pebble beach within a 5 minute drive. We said goodbye to everyday with a Hawaiian sunset and slept to the sound of Coqui frogs, were greeted in the morning to lively geckos in their natural habitat. Our host was available but not intrusive and we would recommend this place to anyone who wants a true Hawaiian experience. Mahalo nui Harry!!!

The tropical gardens surrounding the cottage gave it so much privacy, the beautiful sunsets over the ocean while sitting out on the porch of the mango hut were spectacular, the comfortable living space with everything you could ever need-and then there is Harry..a friendly, fabulous host! We totally loved this place and hope to return!

This is a really romantic place with a beautiful exotic garden. It was our first accommodation on Hawaii and it was just perfect for the two of us! Although situated near the highway there was no noise bothering us, just wildlife and nature sounds. We took advantage of the location and discovered the coast from Kona to Pahala. Harry is very welcoming and warmhearted host who gave us a lot of helpful information about the area. We would definitely go again.

Harry's place is amazing!! The pictures of the ocean view and the cottage do this place no justice. The cottage is well kept and very clean Harry was very sweet and he's a great host. He provided us with all of the essentials and the binder was helpful during our stay. If you're seeking peace and quiet with a scenic drive, into Kona, then this the place to stay. My boyfriend and I will definitely return to this place,

Fun place to stay. Very small, but equipped with all the cooking supplies and bathroom supplies you'd need. It was clean, with a great view of the ocean. The biggest problem was the mosquitos. My family and I all walked away with at least 15 bites. Overall, a fun and adventure-filled time in this tropical escape!

Response from Harry:
In W. Hawai'i (where it is usually dry) , mosquitoes like rainy and wet conditions so they come-out after periods of rain. Sorry these guests were here during a few very rainy days. This is common all over the state of Hawai'i.

This property is stunning. The description is very accurate, it is rustic and you get to really appreciate nature with this cottage. Harry is a great host, his cottage provided everything we needed for it to feel like a home away from home. The cottage is beautiful, clean and well equipped. We absolutely loved our stay, the pictures don't do the view justice. The fruit trees and birds you hear really enhance the stay. If you're looking for a quiet getaway to a beautuful cottage to an unbelievable view, this place will not disappoint.

I love to travel, especially adventuring in different cultures and learning the ways and "beauty" of the people who live there. I love Hawaii and sharing it with friends and guests, especially those who appreciate the spirit and mana of the island.

Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook:
To be in authentic and natural Hawaii,close to the ocean and untouched by tourists, hotels and resorts.
I love the ocean and the secluded beaches nearby with the wonderful trails leading to them. It feels like 'Old Hawaiiana'. The sounds of the birds, wildlife and whales singing at night in the winter makes you feel like you're in the great outdoors. The tropical garden offers lots of wonderful wildlife to encounter.
