Captain Cook house description
For all of you who are “on-the-fence” about where to stay in Hawaii, we would like to share some important things to consider.
When it comes to airfare, renting a car, food, gas and misc. expenses, everyone who ventures out to Hawaii will pretty much pay the same price. The real difference is the lodging. A lot of people overlook this important decision and often find themselves having a sub par vacation based on where they ended up staying. 'We get it! ' You thought that you would save a few bucks, however, the few bucks that you saved on paper did
nothing to ultimately enhance your trip.
That's where Simple Pleasures makes a difference.
For the value, we offer a clean, comfortable and elegant accommodation that will absolutely enhance your stay in Hawaii.
We invite you to view our photos and video to see the difference.
We are offering the Penthouse level of our 5,000 sq. ft recently finished Beach home starting at $175.00. You get the top floor, 2 bedroom, 2 full bathroom, huge penthouse suite that sleeps 5. All of our amenities are clean, custom and brand new! The rest of the house is officially closed, which means no other people will stay in this Huge Home or on the property while you are there. Lastly, this Hawaiian Palace is only a 5 min. walk to the beach! What more can we say? it is a fantastic deal. Please compare our photos and videos with others on the site. Our aim is to get it right, and make sure our guests are happy.
If this makes sense to you please read on and get more details. Aloha! Simple Pleasures.
Our official Property Description
From the start, the concept behind this truly majestic build was very clear, tastefully work with the land, capture its essence, and “Keep it Simple.”
The Hawaiian Islands are simply one of the world’s most desirable locations, truly a tropical paradise beyond compare. A perfect fit for a once in a lifetime opportunity to build a once in a lifetime dream. With that said, we warmly offer our personal contribution to the islands by launching our most beautiful creation to date, “Simple Pleasures”.
Situated approximately 45 minutes south of Kailua- Kona, Simple Pleasures is close enough to partake in all of Kona’s nightlife yet far enough away to marinate in a real feeling of authentic Hawaiian lifestyle. Once you set foot on the property, it will be obvious that your new Hawaiian home was the right choice. This freshly finished 2012 custom home is easily on par with the highest of high-end resorts, but at nearly half the cost.
Our “ Plumeria Lined Paradise”, a five minute walk to the beach, not only offers some of the most magnificent ocean views, but our guests will appreciate the natural breezes from the Hawaiian trade winds lufting through our 16ft ceilings. Luxurious stone floors were thoughtfully placed in all common areas to ensure our guests keep cool. The full size custom bathrooms, made of both stone and marble, enjoy upgraded touches such as custom cabinets, vessel sinks and bidets to enhance your experience. For the utmost comfort, each bedroom has been outfitted with luxury hotel grade queen size pillow-top mattresses, finished off with mahogany sleigh bed frames. Additionally, the bedrooms include mahogany hardwood floors, your own private bath, wireless internet, and safe deposit boxes. Our tastefully executed kitchen, designed to be a “social kitchen”, places the cook in a position that faces the entire living room, lanai and all guests while preparing meals whether dining indoors or using the formal dining table outdoors on the lanai. Last but not least, the crown jewel of Simple Pleasures is our 1,000-sq.ft ocean facing lanai. You can easily see 40 miles of spectacular coastline views in each direction! It really equates to being the ultimate outdoor living room on the property. This is where all the sunsets, whale watching and outdoor socializing happens. Whether it is a glass of wine, reading a book, or stretching out on the 8ft. daybed, this spot is all Hawaii. From our vantage point, the mixture of fresh floral air mixed with the tranquil ocean breeze cannot be put into words. This is truly a space to be experienced. With this much space, we also created an outdoor “dining room”. This was brilliant! With million dollar views, this is the perfect spot for our guest to gather and have breakfast before a day of site seeing, lunch after snorkeling at the beach or a beautiful backdrop for a romantic dinner at sunset. It doesn’t get any better.
Simple Pleasures to us means, “seamless harmony”. Understanding that your Hawaii vacation means everything to you and trips like this don’t happen everyday, our focus was to anticipate your needs and exceed your expectations.
We thank you for considering us and wish you nothing but Aloha, and remember,
“Keep it Simple”!

It is Paradise!
It is Paradise!
A beautiful home that immediately instills peace & tranquility. I spent almost every night toasting the sunset from the sleeping porch. Absolutely stunning. The owners have put a lot of thought into every detail. The kitchen was well equipped. I appreciated the coffee grinder, since I purchased locally grown coffee. What a way to start your day! I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a quiet get away. PS, if you want to go out, there are some sweet little restaurants fairly close by.

Very Simply Put - The House is Stunning
Very Simply Put - The House is Stunning
From the moment we walked into the foyer of this house we knew we were going to experience something truly magical. The 180* Kona coast views were spectacular and unobstructed. Something you can not find for this price if renting a condo in Kona. We spent every waking moment of our week long vacation on the lanai. We even slept there-taking in the sounds of the ocean, the baby goats mewing, and watching the Gecko's play hide and seek. When we did leave to get groceries or explore the island we couldn't wait to return to that vista. It called to us. We will now be spending every vacation we have at this house. Like I said-Truly Stunning. Top Notch! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Manager response: Thank you so much for your heart felt review. Your comments fuel us to continue doing a great job. Doing our best to prepare the property for those who wish to experience it is one thing, but the kind words and true feelings of happiness at the end of ones stay is the best reward ever! This started out as a dream, and the dream has far exceeded our expectations! So glad to provide a truly great place for guests to call "Home" while residing in Hawaii.

Our stay at Kona Paradise exceeded our expectations. Pictures don't do it justice, it is just beautiful. The views from every window are stunning. Pebble Beach was different than we expected. The snorkelling was fantastic because of the lava rocks with no sand which made the clarity incredible. Nice to not have yourself covered with sand and to take a beach chair from the house. Very remote, not crowded at all because a busy day had six people there. This was a very relaxing holiday for us because at this location you are really "getting away from it all". We shopped at Choicemart in Captain Cook for groceries. When it clouded over in the early afternoon we would usually drive north to another sunny beach and have a sunset picnic. We would definitely recommend this property if you want privacy and don't mind driving around. Mahalo for sharing your beautiful property with us.:)

We fell in love with this house as soon as we walked in! Absolutely beautiful!!! We could not believe the views from almost every window!! The sunsets are the most beautiful thing we've ever seen and waking up with you looking straight into the ocean as soon as you walk into the kitchen was amazing!!! We definitely felt at home there as it is fully stocked with everything you might need. We cooked on the grill and in the kitchen and we had all the cooking utensils we needed all we provided was the food! There is a local grocery store called ChoiceMart that sells fresh fish right out of the ocean! There is a beach right down the road from the house called Pebble Beach which is absolutely beautiful and somewhat private and the diving there was fantastic!!! For scuba divers: almost everywhere there is a beach u can shore dive so need to waste a lot of money on boat dives. The Manta Ray dive was the only boat dive we did and worth the money but other than that we just did shore dives and saw some of the most amazing fish and reefs, Eagle Rays, Hawksbill Turtles, angel fish, yellow tang and so on!!! South Point is a must see with its Green Sand Beach but be prepared to walk along way to the beach unless you rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle! Black Sand Beach is a definite must see as the Turtles are everywhere there!!!! Just a note though, the Turtles here in Hawaii are sacred so please don't touch them!! Magic Sands Beach is another really nice beach with really big waves!! Kei'ie is a fabulous dive spot!! We saw a gorgeous Eagle Ray and some very beautiful reefs!!! I could go on forever talking about this house and this island but I'm running out of room. Hawaii is Heaven on earth and this beautiful home made it that much better! My heart is heavy because we have to leave but we hope to return again and I hope this home is available! Mahalo! Mark, Amy, & Judy K. The Lonestar State

Our stay at Simple Pleasures was absolutely awesome! The home is not finished but is a beautiful home with a lot of thought put into it. The kitchen is fully stocked. The home is luxuriously appointed. It has very nice sumptuous towels and linens. The veiw from the master bath shower is awesome. Imagine taking a shower with the window open and seeing the ocean and listening to the birds and ocean. There are feral goats that roam the hillside. They are soooo cute. The beach is a very rugged beach but very beautiful. You do need water togs to walk in the surf. It is called "Pebble Beach" because it is all lava rock and the rock gets smaller as you get closer to the water. It is beautiful. The housekeeper lives nearby and is super helpful if you have any questions or need anything. I would stay here again in a second it is truly paradise! Mahalo!

Simple pleasures is an amazing vacation home with beautiful decor to set up a nice holiday mood. The clean ocean view was awesome and added to the peaceful relaxing stay. The owners have thought about the visitor requirements very well and have made sure nothing is missed. The kitchen is up to date with plenty of utensils to ensure you can cook and enjoy a hearty meal when you don't feel like getting out of this wonderful house especially when you have the beautiful ocean right in front of you. The house has plenty of light with its open concept. No curtains in the house but you still get all the privacy as the house is at a higher elevation and the last one on the street. The pebble beach is walking distance and usually not at all crowded. Lot of excellent spots about 30 min drive if you want to enjoy the island.. Snorkel sets and beach gear was also provided to enjoy the beaches. Overall a wonderful experience and we would highly consider staying here when visiting the big island. Mahalo!

This is a new, comfortable, and beautiful house in a fabulous location. This is a high quality house built against a cliff with an amazing ocean view. It is beautifully decorated with solid wood furniture, kitchen with very nice green marble counters, high quality utensils, beautiful and comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms. It was perfectly cleaned. The high ceiling with wood work gives a spacious feeling. All this together with the amazing sunset is worth every single minute there. It was great pleasure to spend sometime in this very special place. I am glad that the owners are willing to share this place.

Manager response: Thank you so much for your beautiful review. It is our dream to share the place with guests who really appreciate the attention to detail and overall feeling that Simple Pleasures offers. Your review lets others know that the place is Real, Beautiful and Special! Thank you again for your kind and honest review. Aloha, Mik'a and Lisa, The Happy Owners.
My family had a wonderful, relaxing time here. It was the perfect size for two couples. The home had everything you could possibly need during your stay. Beach bag, chairs, boogie boards, flashlights and a stocked kitchen. The water cooler was very nice to fill up with water for those hikes. The view was amazing, to be out on the lanai at any time of day was the highlight. Ate breakfast every morning outside, watching the few boats that were out, then at night it was very peaceful to just relax from a day out on the daybed. Very convienient location to Volcano park and other southern sites. Thank you for opening your home.

Super Nice Home with an awesome view!
Super Nice Home with an awesome view!
My family stayed several nights in the home and I must say the house is brand new. The appliances and items in the house were top notch and high quality items. There were a few things that were unfinished, I suppose they are currently still working to finish the house (the bottom level). The view was amazing and the area is pretty nice, really close to a lot of Kona Coffee plantations and other fruit places, Captain Cook's Monument is also an easy drive away. You must go snorkeling there, it is the best snorkeling spot in the Hawaiian Islands and I believe it. Very nice property and nice owners, overall good stay.
