Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Our busy lives working in the Silicon Valley Event Production and Surgical fields left little time to enjoy our vacations, so as we started to approach retirement age we wanted to find a home we could enjoy and share for years to come. So when the opportunity finally presented itself, we jumped on it. We call our little piece of heaven 'Blue Hawaii'. And when you see it you'll know why.
Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook: When a friend says, ”Hey do you want to come stay at my house in Kona, you look like you’re ready for a vacation?”. Do you just get on a plane and hope it’s an O.K. kind of house somewhere near a beach?
It is an Island after all-at some point you’ll get to a beach. Right?
The first time we visited Kona Paradise it went something like that. A friend offered up his Kona Vacation Rental to us for Thanksgiving 2013. We arrived at the airport, got our rental car and stopped as suggested at Costco on the way down. After stocking up on a weeks worth of supplies like coffee, steaks, wine and beer, we headed south. When we saw the Kona Paradise sign, made the right hand turn onto Kaohe Road and started down that winding, breath taking hill, we knew we were in for something beyond special-it was spectacular.
After unloading the car, we found ourselves mesmerized by the most amazing 180° coastal views of the Kona coast. This wasn't just a vacation rental on an island in the pacific - this was a stunningly beautiful oasis that we had all to ourselves for a whole week.
We could hear the ocean raking over the black pebbles on the beach below us. We watched for whales breaching, and dolphins cruising the coastline looking for fun and frolic. We slept among the stars out on the lanai the entire time, and swore that if an opportunity arose we would make this area our home some day. In 2014 we purchased Blue Hawaii. Our dream come true. It brought peace and serenity to our hearts and minds. Took us from our hustle and bustle go-go-go lifestyle on the mainland and brought us back to what was important. Us. Happy and laid back. Loving life. We hope your stay at Blue Hawaii can bring something back into your life that you perhaps have forgotten. Maybe a little rest, relaxation and dare we say...Magic!
The Unique Benefits at this House: The moment you step onto the tropical blue walkway, all your cares melt away. You know right away this is THE place. Blue Hawaii truly lets you relax, rejuvenate and rediscover. We hope once you've been here you will want to come back again and again. Come feel the difference of Blue Hawaii.
