Captain Cook house description

ENJOY this peaceful, beautiful two-story home surrounded by tropical landscape and 180 degree ocean view! This gorgeous property has been recognized and has won the prestigious award of 'TOP VACATION RENTAL in Captain Cook for 2012 AND 2013'! This unique property has 1/3 acre surrounded by tropical and lush gardens. Two minutes by car to our private beach and secluded crystal clear and warm water bay where you can snorkel, swim, kayak and more!

Panoramic ocean views span the horizon as far as your eyes will take you; this property is considered to be in the 'favored zone' due to the perfect elevation, climate and proximity to local parks, 1 hour to Volcano National Park, just 20 minutes to Kealakekua Bay, 10 min to Hookena Beach where the dolphins rest and where you can swim easily with the dolphins. Honounou National Historic Park is only 15 min. from this beautiful property. Hiking trails abound, horseback riding (20 minutes away). Hilo is two hours away--great location!
Also, the home is only two minutes from the wonderful BLACK PEBBLE BEACH, Kaohe Bay, at the bottom of the street. The average water visibility is 40 feet and more. It is calm almost every day of the year. For the beachgoers, we are stocked with snorkel gear, boogieboards, umbrella, beach chairs, beach blankets, coolers and more.

The panoramic ocean and coastline views are simply mesmerising, with the 1000 ft surrounding lanai where you can rest and enjoy dining with the gas grill barbeque! Embrace a sense of peace the minute you walk through the tropical gardens leading to this private home.The sun pours in through the stained glass windows and vaulted ceilings with high-reaching windows offering a sense of openness, light and views of the tropical gardens below and ocean abound.

Kona Leilani is a perfect retreat for groups and families. A gourmet kitchen is fully equipped for entertaining. The three large bedrooms will wow you with their openness to beauty. Beautifully furnished and filled with unique art, the two bedrooms upstairs will encompass you with quiet elegance. Three “full” bathrooms (one bathroom is downstairs in the ohana) allows for stress-free mornings.

The home boasts an additional separate OHANA (family) quarters downstairs complete with full bathroom, kitchenette, queen sofabed and its own private lanai that has its own entertaining and meditation area. All ocean view. A queen sofa bed and full aerobed are available downstairs in the ohana for additional guests.

You will love the space in the master bedroom which has a comfortable queen size bed with a walk in closet and full bathroom with walk in shower. It even leads to a private lanai, so you awake to a view of tropical flowers from your bedside. Each of the bedroom suites are enhanced with custom furnishings and decor to captivate a mood of relaxation, tranquility and comfort.

Children love this home since there is room to play and explore the gardens and the mini-lava caves right on the property. As one of our guests have said; 'This is a magical garden and perfect for group settings.' It is both elegant and spacious; perfect for weekly or monthly stays with family or friends, or a romantic get away for a couple.

Sweet island fragrances will surely awaken all your senses, as you explore the 1/3 acre of lush landscape and the plentiful plumerias, papayas, mangoes and tropical flowers right in your yard, and experience the flora and fauna of the Big Island from the privacy of your lanais. The surrounding lanai, with complete ocean views, allows for private seating and resting areas from each bedroom and from the dining and living room areas.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  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!
