County water! Weekly curbside rubbish pick-up.
Cable TV. Wireless Internet.
$200 REFUNDABLE cleaning/damage deposit required for weekly bookings.
$400 REFUNDABLE cleaning/damage deposit required for reservations of a month.

It works out better for everyone if the studio is left tidy and the deposit is returned. If the deposit is not used for extra cleaning and/or damage, a refund of the deposit will be mailed back to guest(s) within 14 days of departure. 98% of deposits have been returned-promptly.

$200 deposit holds your dates. Balance is due thirty days before arrival. $100 cancellation fee if reservation is cancelled 30 days prior to arrival for weekly reservations, $200 cancellation fee for reservations of a month.
The deposit encourages guests to spend some of their vacation time to tidy up before departure.

Due to the ever changing, yet HIGH cost of electricity in Hawaii, (three times the price as on the Mainland) use of the dryer is not included unless other arrangements have been made. Adequate clothes lines and racks are provided.
For monthly bookings electricity is included up to the average kwts based on the prior three months.

Sorry, no refunds within 30 days of arrival.

Longer term rates may be available with a one month security deposit, acceptable credit report, rental application and references. For reservations of more than a month, the deposit will be reconsidered based on the length of time reserved.

No pets. NO smoking on property.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1983

About the owner: Former world travelers found the perfect spot to share with other travelers who expect the comforts offered by our accommodations. Electricity, city water, cable, security, Internet, safe and clean...warm and with a view too!

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 often 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 that we get the most rain. Hence the lower rates.
