Captain Cook house description

Our home is your peaceful place of refuge and the answer to a relaxing visit on the Big Island of Hawaii. You will have exclusive use of a 3 bedroom, 2 full bath, 2 car garage house with laundry facilities in the Kona Paradise Subdivision, 25 miles south of Kona. The home is located at the bottom of Kaohe Road, 150 yards from Pebble Beach. It is an easy, non-exerting walk (both directions) to your own private, community beach.

You can hear the whales calling and the waves cascading onto the pebble shore. We have splendid views of the ocean and the mountains.

Our expansive wrap-around lanai is the perfect place to enjoy the cool ocean breeze, sip a delicious cup of 100% Kona or Kau coffee, check your email or eat a delicious papaya after awaking to the birds chirping and the beautiful hillside beckoning a morning hike. This is paradise!

Our 2-story home is clean and spacious with an open floor plan. It is three bedrooms, two baths with the living room, dining room, lanai, and kitchen on the upper floor and the garage and laundry below. The spacious master bedroom has its own sliding door onto the lanai, a plush pillowtop king size bed, walk-in closet, ensuite bathroom, and full wall of windows facing the southern view and lanai. The house has been professionally furnished from the Stanley Costal Living Resort Collection, Pottery Barn & Pottery Barn Kids. The sunlit guest bedroom features a pillowtop queen bed and shares a full bathroom with the third bedroom, containing two twin beds. All bedrooms, the living room and lanai have ceiling fans. The house is not air-conditioned; however, all windows are screened, there are two sliding doors onto the lanai, and plenty of ocean and mountain breezes. The expansive covered lanai (15' x 30') is easily accessed off of the living room and the master suite. You will find fantastic views and an enjoyable patio dining table and chairs to enjoy quiet mornings or sunset dinners.

The kitchen has brand new stainless steel appliances and is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, silverware, table linens, cooking utensils, blender, coffee maker, coffee grinder, toaster, hot water kettle, rice cooker, waffle maker and baking pans.

We are located 25 miles south of Kona and 32 miles south of the airport, off of Highway 11. It is a beautiful, lush and scenic drive past quaint towns and coffee farms. Pebble Beach is a tiny walk from our door. It is a private community, small black pebble beach that offers hiking trail access, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding and diving access. We are also close to Ho'okeena Beach, Pu-uhonua o Honaunau (aka Place of Refuge) and fantastic Two Steps (Snorkeling), The Painted Church, and Kealakekua Bay (Capt Cook Monument). Volcano National Park is 70 miles to the south with great hiking and views.

You will love it here. Come enjoy the paradise!

                  Owner info

                  Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook:
                  We have always enjoyed Hawaii and fell in love with the Big Island. We especially enjoy the Kona Paradise neighborhood because it is safe, quiet and friendly and one of very few residential areas that has easy access to the beach and coastline. It is located in a beautiful, lush (but not rainy) area of the island near many coffee farms. Our home has excellent proximity to the ocean. You can hear the whales at night and in the morning the birds chirp and your eyes are met with beautiful mountain and ocean views. It is so peaceful.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love the quiet tropical location of Kona Paradise. It is close enough to a number of great attractions but away from the tourista of downtown Kona. We know you will love the tranquility of our beautiful home and the incredible ocean sounds and views.
