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, Internet, nice appliances, safe and clean...warm and with a 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. The home was designed and built in 1998 with a self contained and separate first floor (the studio rental). Friends here suggested that we rent out the first floor to visitors coming to Kona on vacation in 1999. This has worked out well for everyone. Much of our business has been from repeat guests who have become friends and often 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.
