About the owner: My husband and I love the ocean. We are both artists and have taken our home and turned it into an artistic getaway! We enjoy being in Hawaii and the Big Island, as it stills has the feeling of 'olde Hawaii,' and country. You will love the location and the smell of plumerias outside the bedroom windows. The blue warm ocean is perfect for swimming with much of the time sunny. We really love providing a wonderful vacation experience for our guests.
Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook: We bought this home as our retreat from the big city. We wanted a space where we could create and Ron, as a professional artist, could paint. So now Ron has created so many beautiful paintings that decorate this beautiful home. It makes it even more special for us.
The Unique Benefits at this House: You will enjoy the quiet and the privacy of the tropical gardens. The ocean and coastline view is 180 degree and you can see all the way down the coast on clear days!
