Captain Cook house description

Welcome to Peace of Heaven
Come experience rural Hawaii, just 45 minutes south of Kailua-Kona. Get away from the traffic and lights to gaze at the stars. Enjoy the peace and quiet; watch the dolphins and whales off the lanai. It is only steps to the very private Pebble Beach.

Kayak, scuba dive and snorkel on one of Hawaii's best kept secrets or you can take a great 15 minute hike to two black sand beaches where you can swim with the turtles. A King's trail will take you to an ancient cinder cone crater rim.

Bring the kids, have cookouts and stay in my awesome new home with amazing Hawaiian and Pacific Rim decor. The house has five bedrooms, each with a lanai, four bathrooms, a Jacuzzi, an outdoor shower, a den, a gourmet kitchen and a playground with a fort for the children.

We are close to many of Hawaii's treasures. It is just 20 minutes to the City of Refuge and the Captain Cook Monument. The green sand beach at south Point is 30 minutes away and it is a 90 minute drive to Volcano Park.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: This is my dream home. I may be possibly interested in a co owner. My place has some of the best snorkeling and kayaking on the island. Many guests say it was their favorite vacation ever.

                  Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook:
                  The location is rural, you can see the stars at night. Away from it all, just a Peace of Heaven.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The bay is a place of birthing for the whales during whale season. If you hear strange noises at night, it is their mating sounds.
