Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Steve and Elizabeth built Manini Point House in 2005 because "We love the Big Island and wanted to build a home where couples and families can relax and enjoy precious moments together and know that they are in paradise. Our extended family often visits us in Hawaii and they look forward to their stay at Manini Point House. We live on Konacopia Farm about 10 minutes away, and are happy to take our Manini Point House guests on a tour of this special Organic Farm.

Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook, HI, USA:
Manini Point House is just 200' from lovely Manini Beach at Kealakekua Bay. K Bay and the surrounding area is a Hawaiian treasure. Manini Point House is located in a little village community and the neighborhood gives you an opportunity to visit with friendly local people as well as folks visiting from around the world. Learn about the Hawaiian culture while visiting historical sites including Puuhonua O Honaunau, Hawaii's national park, just 4 miles away. If you are looking for an alternative to a generic resort for your holiday, Manini Point House offers the opportunity for an authentic Hawaiian experience in a beautiful part of the Big Island. In K Bay, you will be snorkeling and swimming with reef fish, dolphins, and seasonal whales. Take a kayak tour across K Bay to Captain Cook monument to swim with dolphins. Manini Beach is a relaxing, very special place to spend quality time alone, or with family and friends. Manini Point House at K Bay is a place you will enjoy and remember, and know that you made the right choice.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This open, beautiful home has a large gourmet kitchen and lanai so families can cook, eat and relax together. Everyone will want to sit down to a meal on the lanai.
