Captain Cook house description

Watch the sun dip toward the sea painting the skies with orange, pink, red, violet, lavender, and blue, while you are relaxing in an Indonesian sling-back chair on the lanai. Soothing breezes fan the trees sending up scents of plumeria. Soon the evening stars appear and the surf is heard above the hush that follows the setting of the sun. Night has fallen and the coastline is now dotted with lights.

Tomorrow perhaps you will go to the beach a couple of streets below and play in the tidal pools. Or hike along the coast and investigate a cinder cone. Watch whales and dolphins swim by. Or maybe you will go sightseeing or snorkeling and be with the turtles and multi-colored fish. Perhaps you will just stay and read. Or study the original artwork by local and international artists displayed within the house.

For dinner, you might decide to go to one of the restaurants in a nearby town or venture to Kailua for more choices and a little nightlife; although it would be lovely to stay and eat in. The kitchen is well equipped to handle simple to gourmet preparations. Enjoy the dining set made from three hundred year-old roots from a jungle in Thailand. Afterward, sink into one of the sofas and feel the inviting softness of the hand-knotted rug from Tibet under your bare feet. Select a movie to watch from the DVD collection in the teak armoire. Or listen to music played on a high quality stereo/CD player.

Then slip into the cool, comfortable bed and let the sound of the surf and the night wind be your lullaby.

If you can imagine yourself in this peaceful setting, then Hale Mele Kohola is for you.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: While we were in college we would take day trips either to Shenandoah in Virginia or to Sugarloaf Mountains in Maryland. At other times we would go to Ocean City. We would talk about how wonderful it would be to live in a place where both features existed side by side. When we came to Hawaii we saw that this dream could come true. Our children agreed as they also love the mountains and the sea. Buying an island home to where we could come for rejuvenation has been one of the best decisions of our life.

              Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook:
              While in the military, we lived on Oahu for three very short years, then our tour was up and had to go to the next station. Before we left, we did have a chance to visit the Big Island. We had heard that it got cold in Volcano and that the mountains would be snow capped in winter. We were intrigued so we went for a weekend and sure enough, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa had snow on their peaks! In the morning there was frost on the windows. There are sixteen micro-climates in the world and fourteen are on the Big Island; is that not astounding? You can go from alpine to semi-arid in a matter of a few hours! We fell in love with the Big Island and secretly wished that someday we would return. We liked its slower pace of life. We go on holiday to get away from it all and we can do that here. When we look at the sweeping views of the coastline and the beautiful sunsets and the way the moon shimmers in the water; the schools of dolphins and pods of whales that swim by - all from the vantage point of our lanai, we know that we made the correct decision to buy a vacation rental here.
