It works out better if the studio is left tidy and the deposit is returned. Full Refund gladly and promptly returned by mail, and well within 14 days of departure. Usually within 3 days. 98% of deposits have been returned.
The deposit encourages guests to spend some of their vacation time to tidy up before departure.

Adequate clothes lines and drying racks are provided on lanai.
Complimentary laundry service of sheets and towels when brought out to the shared washing machine.
For monthly bookings electricity is included up to the average kwts based on the prior three months to encourage energy conservation.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1983

About the owner: Former world travelers found the perfect spot to share with other travelers who expect the comforts offered by our accommodations. Electricity, city water, cable, security (fenced and gated) Internet, nice new appliances, clean...warm and with an ocean view too!

Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook, HI, USA:
This land was purchased over 30 years ago with the dream of one day building a home as we worked all over the world. The home was designed and built in 1998 with a self contained and separate first floor (the studio rental). A friend (Magic Sands lifeguard!) suggested that we rent out the first floor to visitors coming to Kona on vacation. This has worked out well for everyone. Much of our business has been from repeat guests who have become friends and oftentimes fellow property owners.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Fresh fruits available on the property. Avocados, papayas, mangos, lemons, mountain apple...Peaceful. Pick your own fruits in season. Please note that May through August are the months when we get the most rain. Hence the lower rates.
