A two and a half hour drive across the Big Island on the Saddle Road brought us to Captain Cook, a small town about 12 miles south of Kailuia-Kona.

TravelPod Member ReviewsA Beautiful Edge of the World B&B Captain Cook
We spent three nights there and everything was just wonderful. The house, the hosts, their hospitality and lovely coffee from their farm. The house has a fabulous view.
