                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: Marci and I(Chuck) moved here from Seattle and are crazy about living here, no thought of what clothes to wear, always shorts and flipflops! 80+ degree ocean water, It just doesn't get any better!

                  Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook:
                  We love being close to the water for swimming, snorkeling, and sunning. Also we are down in 'Old Hawaii' and far from the hustle and bustle of more upscale or congested areas.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  There is nothing like picking your own fruit for breakfast, with a 365 day growing season! We Live in the Area, so if you need anything just call us!
