Captain Cook house description

Aloha!

The DOLPHIN DREAM HOUSE is an Awesome 2 bedroom Vacation Home for rent on four acres of lush tropical land with enchanting panoramic ocean views, only five minutes from one of the best snorkeling locations in Hawaii and an enchanting Bay where the wild dolphins love to come to play, to mate and to rest.

This magical vacation home is tastefully decorated with dolphin decor and is located on Middle Keei Road in Captain Cook, about 30 minutes South of Kona. The property is a secluded, retreat oasis, surrounded by mangos, coconut palms & tropical flowering trees and is very close to Two-Step Beach.

The DOLPIN DREAM HOUSE is an awesome place to enjoy time with family and friends and enjoy the fantastic ocean spots, where dolphins and turtles have their homes.

The home has a huge wrap around Lanai with spectacular ocean views, and a variety of nice tropical rattan furniture. There are two bedrooms one with King canopy bed and 1 with Queen bed as well as two fold out Queen beds and extra sofas to accommodate a group of six to ten.

The house has high speed Wi-Fi internet, 3D Color TV, dishwasher, washer and dryer.

Wake up to beautiful sounds of nature, and views of the
sunlight lighting up the ocean, go out for a swim with the dolphins and have dinner on the enchanting lanai where you will see breathtaking sunsets over the ocean almost every day! At night, from the living room and the expansive deck you can see the reflections of the moonlight shimmering on the ocean.

The kitchen is very modern and features granite counter tops, gas range top and full size brand new electric wall oven. The DOLPHIN DREAM HOUSE also comes equipped with a vintage jukebox containing hits from the 60's.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: We have always been enchanted with life under the sea and were drawn to this magical area to swim with the dolphins, communicate with them, and live in harmony with nature. We work as documentary filmmakers making films that have a positive message to humanity and encourage the conservation of the dolphins & the whales, and the oceans and rivers of our planet.

                  Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook:
                  We had always dreamed of owning a property with acreage in this area. We were drawn to this area due to our love of the dolphins. To us this is the most beautiful area in the world to live where we can experience wild dolphins each month of our lives and enjoy the peace and tranquility of living immersed in nature. This property especially called out to us as it is a natural 'Shangri-La' rich with the magical views of the ocean, fantastic orange sunsets that are out of this world, coconut palms producing coconuts that you can drink the milk from while enjoying the sunsets, star-fruit trees, mangos, avocados, mac nut trees, and much much more!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The large wrap around lanai (wooden deck) providing enchanting panoramic views of the ocean is one of our favorite features of the DOLPHIN DREAM HOUSE. We had glass panels and beautiful wood railings installed on the deck and it is our favorite place to enjoy breakfasts, lunches and dinners, margaritas, fine wine and romantic evenings. We also love it that you can wake up and see Plumeria flower blossoms in the trees from the bedrooms and hear the sweet sounds of birds singing, and can walk out on the grounds and pick avocados or starfruit which are so juicy and so delicious. Being only a five minute drive from the beaches where we go swimming with wild dolphins is Awesome!~
