Mala A Kai “Garden by the Sea” is a quaint (non-smoking) three bedroom, two bath home situated forty minutes from Kailua Kona and a short two minute walk to Pebble Beach (polished flat lava stones), a secluded community beach with some of the best snorkeling, kayaking and diving on the island. You will be pleasantly surprised at the amazing ocean views and the tropical charm this relaxing beach house provides. “Mala A Kai” is tucked away at the end of a short street that backs up to the remote vastness of both ocean and mountain landscape. You can sit on the lanai and listen to the sounds of the seasonal Humpback whales breaching, watch the dolphins spinning or the sun setting on any given day.
In the back of the house an element of surprise awaits you as a secret garden grows with bananas, pineapple, papayas and many other native Hawaiian plants.
From the front of the home you will be greeted by a modest entrance and a single car garage to park your car and stow beach gear, towels and ice chests from your day’s adventure. The air conditioned home is furnished with chic, comfortable, tropical furniture and decor. A fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances allows easy access to the lanai for eating alfresco or barbequing at sunset. The master suite has ocean, mountain and garden views with a queen bed. The adjoining bathroom has double sinks, tub and shower. Enjoy surf, sunsets & whale watching from your lanai, kitchen, living area & master bedroom. The Captains suite (bedroom) with queen bed, and garden views inspires nautical adventures on the open sea, relaxing in a tropical paradise or walking barefoot on the beach collecting shells along the shore. The third bedroom is equipped with desk and computer, corner set twin beds. The guest bathroom has a tub, shower and sink. Commercial grade elliptical machine can be found in the garage area with a TV and ocean view for your heart smart work out.

About: We are originally from the Pacific Northwest. Troy was a commercial fisherman for 28 years and Mary is a special education teacher. 12 years ago we moved to Hawaii for the sun & sea. The endless summer foe work and play year round. We are avid gardeners who love the diversity of the islands.
Why Captain Cook: Mala a Kai was the prefect place for us to live close to town but in a rural farming community with the beach at our door step. Listening to the whales at night while wearing shorts year round what could be better.This house is centrally located to all the Big Island has to offer. Volcano to the south, coffee, macnuts, great beaches & diving, the town and resorts to the north.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We love to hang out in the garden and whale watch from the lanai or enjoy an ocean swim anytime of day. Fresh topical fruit direct from our own garden. We have a quiet peaceful paradise.
