Captain Cook house description

Paradise Ocean Hale is a stunning oceanfront home located in quiet, rural South Kona, just a 40 minute drive from Kailua-Kona. Enjoy the luxury of sitting on your own spacious lanai, listening to the sound of the surf gently washing over our beautiful pebble beach while watching whales and dolphins swim by. Snorkel, swim and kayak from our private community beach just steps from your door. Kaohe Bay has some of the best snorkeling and diving on the island. Hike the historic Kings Trail to other remote beaches and an ancient cinder cone.

This gracious open plan home features 3 large tastefully decorated tropical style bedrooms, including a master suite, 2 baths, comfortable large living area with a 60 inch surround sound TV system, beautiful Koa bar and a large well appointed kitchen. Enjoy barbecuing and dining out on the lanai or relaxing with a tropical drink and watching a glorious sunset.

Although you may never want to leave this special place, we are only a 20 minute drive to Pu' uhonua o Honaunau National Park and 20 minutes to the Captain Cook Monument in Kealakekua Bay.
Reserve your dates today for the vacation of a lifetime!

Note: Our calender is up to date. If there a partial line through a date, that day is not available.
We respond to inquiries as soon as we receive them, however please keep in mind that Hawaii time is 2-6 hours earlier than mainland time.
Note: The road down to the house is steep. 4-wheel drive is not needed, however, we urge our guests to put their cars in low gear, turn on the A/C going down and drive slowly.
Thank you.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: My great grandparents traveled from Portugal to the Hawaiin Islands and settled in Maui in the late 1800s. I was born in Maui and reared in Oahu. I went to Farrington High School and graduated when I was 17. I was married the same yr. and also had my first child. By the time I was 21, I had 4 children. I moved to San Diego in 1960, remarried and had my 5th child. I went into Real Estate sales in San Diego and sold RE for 20 yrs. By that time I had several rentals and retired from RE and lived off the income of my rentals. It was hard work but it paid off in time.

                  Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook:
                  My husband Gary loved fishing and when we went to Kona for a vacation, he fell in love with it. We wanted to build our home here, so we looked for a lot. We both wanted to be by the ocean, however, it was slim pickings finding a lot on the ocean or by the ocean. We heard about Kona Paradise from a Realtor who showed us our lot. We were so excited because not only was it ocean front but it also was a swimming beach. It is very rare in Kona to have a beach that you can walk into and swim or snorkel without having to cross over sharp lava rocks.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  It is so wonderful to just sit and listen to the waves washing thru the pebbles on the beach. In the winter time when the surf high, it is such a beautiful sight to see the large waves crashing down on the beach. I love watching the whales as they go by to settle in the coves south of us and birth their calfs before going back up north. I also love to see the dophins that come and visit our cove. My huband and I would anchor our boat in the cove and then go fishing. Just a few miles out we would catch a lot of fish that we'd share with our wonderful friends and nieghbors. Kona Paradise is truly paradise.
