Captain Cook chateau / country house description

This magnificent, 3800 square foot home, literally will take your breath away. The view is a sensory overload experience, you can hardly take all in at once. For couples or Groups to 16, this house can serve everyone. Named ‘Kona Dolphin House’ it is close to the beaches where you can swim near Spinner Dolphins.

It is truly a one of a kind Big Island view overlooking majestic Kealakekua Bay, the City of Refuge and 40 coastline miles. The high open beamed vaulted living area shares the kitchen, dining, living room and home theater all in one completely open area and connects though a 40’ wide opening to the Lanai. This great room is the setting for sharing good times.

Just a twenty minute drive from Kailua-Kona and Keauhou in the village of Capitan Cook, this is the place to come to beat the crowds and congestion of Kailua-Kona. Here at one-thousand-two-hundred feet elevation you will enjoy the perfect climate in Hawaii. Suitable for the very young and older guests the single story perfectly flat level main house has two master suites both with stunning views and feature California king beds. There is a large spa on one of the master suite lanai's. The third bedroom has two California kings.

There is an optionally priced 1 bedroom 1 bath Attached Guest House (called ‘Ohana’) which sleeps 6. The Ohana is the best thing that ever happened to a vacation with children (young or older)! Their own 'Surf's Up' sanctuary, includes its very own kitchen, living area with TV/Cable/Internet and full bath.

This home built in 2002 is furnished with solid Tropical Mahogany and Teak furniture from Thailand and was completed with professional interior design throughout. Fully appointed with every luxury you can imagine. It would be hard to improve upon!

You can actually watch Whales and Dolphins from the large covered Lanai. Kealakekua Bay is world renowned for its spinner dolphin population, as they jump into the air they spin! Watch fishing boats and other boats from a bird's eye view.

                      Owner info

                      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.
