Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: We live in California on the central coast near Monterey. We have been visiting the islands since 1982. Being real estate developers, we enjoy redesigning interiors, and upgrading homes. Our ideas in lifestyle and design are integrated into our projects including this home you are considering. You would not be just renting a house; but an experience with privacy, and luxury enjoyment.
Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook: We have always felt that someday we would spend more time here, then in 2004 it happened. After searching for two weeks and travelling hundreds of miles on the Big Island we found the most incredible area and property. As we looked out from the great room through the forty foot folding door opening to the coast our jaw dropped, and goosebumps drifted up our backs. We were awestruck and bought the house that day. I know that when you enter this place you will feel experience the same.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House: Luxury 3800 sf. home; amenities galore; located on a one acre botanical Eden, gated property. Privacy, security. Luxury features: Chef's kitchen, home theatre with 6 reclining seats, easy to get around one level house, close to beach parks with the best island snorkeling, supreme Hawaiian climate at 1200 feet elevation (less humidity, never too hot), in the Kona Eco-Agri touring area - coffee lovers and foodies rejoice! The best tropical fruit stands, fresh island fish. Away from noisy touist places, yet close enough to be there in 20 minutes.
