It works out better for everyone if the studio is left tidy and the deposit is returned. This helps us to keep the rates down.

For monthly bookings electricity is included up to the average kwts based on the prior three months.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1984

              About the owner: Former world travelers found the perfect spot to share with other travelers who expect the basic comforts offered by our accommodations.

              Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook:
              This land was purchased over 30 years ago with the dream of one day building a home. This house was designed and built in 1998 with a self contained and separate first floor (the studio rental). Friends here suggested that we rent out the first floor to visitors coming to Kona on vacation in 1999. This has worked out well for everyone. Much of our business has been from repeat guests who have become friends and fellow property owners.

              The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
              Fresh fruits available on the property. Avocados, papayas, mangos, lemons, mountain apple...Peaceful. Pick your own fruits in season. Please note that May through August are the months we get the most rain. Hence the lower rates.
