Captain Cook estate description

Awaken the senses and the soul in Hawaii at The Blue Roof. This private estate style property is the quintessential quiet get way. It's a true zen retreat, blessed by a 180 degree view of the Pacific, stretched away from the combustion of mainland life. If you're looking for that transformative Hawaiian escape, perhaps a well deserved chance to recharge, consider The Blue Roof.

Property has three structures- Main House, Ohana, Utility Barn, with tropical landscaping around.

Outdoors- anticipate an unmatched view, green flash sunsets, starry starry nights, Mauna Loa breezes, multiple private lanais, patio, pool, hot tub, lava rock shower, gas bar-b-que, various wildlife (bring binoculars), tropical garden, rock wall trimmed yard, coffee farm upslope.
Indoors- expect spacious living quarters, vaulted ceilings, breezy french doors, sliding doors, screens all around. All upper level flooring hand carved koa wood. No carpet. Water solar heated. No need for raspy climate control system as the 800 ft property elevation and open air style doors/widows allow clean ocean and mountain circulation around the clock, especially at night which can get refreshingly chilly during winter months when Mauna Loa is snow capped. Perfection.

Main House Ground Level- Clay tile floors through out. Large master suite has canopy bed and large full bath. The entire master has three different openings-house, pool and lava cave shower.
Kitchen- custom granite counters, high end Subzero and Wolf brands, separate wine fridge, pantry and variety of cooking/baking tools.
Living Room- bright great room style, 30 foot ceilings, hand stacked lava rock fireplace-mantel, 10 chair woodcraft dining table, L sofa, wifi, large screen flat TV with basic dish.
Main House Upstairs- three separate bedrooms, each sleeps two comfortably. A full bath has louvered door separating the his and her sinks from toilet and shower tub. Upstairs balcony leads outdoors to wicker furnished lanai (sleep out there if you like).
Ohana- separate two story building is new addition to property. Upstairs includes large vaulted bed room with one king and two twins, two overhang balconies looking upslope, walk in closet. There's a large bathroom with tiled stand up glass door shower and basin sink. Hall leads to sliding doors that open to outdoor private lanai overlooking ocean.
Ohana Ground Level- large concrete floor multipurpose room- large teak wood doors both barn and sliding kind open up the space. Space commonly used for exercise and stretching as yoga mats and light exercise equipment provided.

                  Car: Necessary

                  The Big Island is an outdoor adventure destination. There are many thrilling things to do here you cannot do anywhere else on the planet. And indeed there's more than enough operators advertising tours. A good option is using an activity agent to assist in finding and scheduling outdoor adventures. It's the least time consuming way to select activities as opposed to calling up a bunch of companies one by one, search availability, et cetera. I recommend contacting My Tour Hawaii, a local and very knowledgeable company run by an inter-island pilot/captain who started the service to better answer the numerous questions posed to him by his passengers concerning where to go-what to do. Air Tours, volcano tours, reef snorkeling, dolphin swims, and charter boats top the list. The message here is whether this is the first or last time you visit the Big Island at some point get out and activate. Mahalos.
