Captain Cook house description

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/office is equipped with desk and computer and can be used as a bedroom with an inflatable queen size mattress. The guest bathroom has a tub, shower and sink. Commercial grade exercise equipment, elliptical and stationary bike can be found in the garage area with a TV and ocean view for your heart smart work out.
Kona Paradise is a small rural subdivision, conveniently located in the heart of Kona Coffee land and Macadamia Nut country. It is close to a variety of great beaches and tourist attractions which include the Pu’uhonua o Honaunau, City of Refuge, National Historical Park, and Two Step for world renowned snorkeling. Captain Cook Monument for kayak and snorkel adventures is also close by. The historic Ali’i Trail edges the coastline and can be hiked in both directions from Pebble Beach just 2 minutes from “Mala A Kai”. Ho’okena Beach is a sand beach park approximately 10 minutes north which is good for keki play and boogie boarding. Miloli, a historic fishing village is 15 minutes south in the other direction. Kailua Kona town is close enough for night life, shopping, and even surfing. There is a grocery store just 20 minutes north that will provide for all your grocery needs. Small restaurants and fruit stands are to be found along the highway and provide fresh, locally grown produce and coffee. On Sundays the farmers and artisans in the area sponsor a farmers market which is located next to the local area grocery store. The volcanoes National Park with an active volcano is “a must see” and is 1 1/2 hours south. This is truly Kona Paradise!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: We have been living in Hawaii for approximately 9 years. We are originally from the Pacific Northwest. Troy was a commercial fisherman for many years and I am a special education teacher. We fell in love with Hawaii on one of our vacations and decided to move to Hawaii and start a new life.

              Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook:
              Amazing views, secluded beach minutes from the house with great snorkeling and swimming.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We enjoy whale watching, swimming, snorkeling and gardening while we are at the Beach house. We have end of the street privacy and we love the quite and solitude when the whales aren't making noise.
