Makai Hideaway quiet and peaceful. Unwind and relax from city life. House is an an hour south of Kona and one hour ten minutes south of the Kona airport. It is one hour ten minutes to volcano from the house. shope before you come as nearest grocery store is 35 minutes away.Three bedroom, three baths, and game room. There actually is a bed in the gameroom so we verge on being a 4 bedroom. A large Lanai runs the length of the house for dolphin and whale watching. Have dinner on a beautiful 600 foot Lanai and watch the incredible sunsets enjoy the warm climate with cool coastal breezes. One and half blocks to water access for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, scuba diving and fishing. It's great to walk around the neighborhood. there is a king bed in the master and three queen beds in the house and one queen sleeper sofa plus a futon. Also, there is an ocean view from the kitchen and you can sit on the couch and see the ocean. Gameroom downstairs has ping pong, darts, air hockey, and small pool table. Sunsets are phenomenal and different every night. There is a barbecue on top deck. First floor master is the largest bedroom in the house and you can hear the waves great from there at night. There's a king bed in the master! There is a washer and dryer in the gameroom and extra small fridge by the tiki bar. the nearest grocery store is 30 minutes away so many travelers stop at Costco as it is by the Kona airport on the way down. There is a supermarket at mile marker 77 and gas station, too.House is a good hour ten south of airport at mile marker 89. The views of the Pacific ocean are sensational and I never get tried of seeing as I descend from 1200 feet to sea level. Please conserve on water and electricity as Hawaii has the nations top rates. There's a nice ocean breeze often at the house but there isn't AC at the house nor do most homeowners in Hawaii have it. We saw a turtle the size of a volkswagon off one of the cliffs in the area and the snorkeling at the swimming hole is great! The swimming hole is a two minute walk away- go to Kai street and turn right. This is where you put in the kayaks or take them into town. There is internet and Netflix so the TV is great! My favorite thing is reading a book on the chaise lounge on the deck or going down to the swimming hole to swim and snorkel. Downstairs in the closet is everything you would ever need- coolers, beach mats, beach toys, snorkeling masks and equipment, life jackets,boogie boards, chairs, fishing tackle box, fishing poles are in garage have Daniel get them for you if you wish to use,
The Milolii area is famous for deep sea fishing, and you can watch the fishing boats or go out yourself. The beautiful secluded Honomolino Beach is close by-short walk along the coast from Milolii State Park-watch the spinner dolphins, snorkel with the fish in the coral, and maybe see a sea turtle or a rare Hawaiian monk seal.
From Kona airport go south on Highway 11 towards Kailua and continue on towards the 89 mile marker, turn right on Milolii Road. Go about three miles, turn right on to Ewalu Avenue drive down the road to Waenea Avenue turn left. Drive to third intersection which is Elima Avenue, turn right and go a half block to a tan house left hand side which is 88-1555.
From Hilo airport go on Highway 11 north for about two hours till you come to the sign that reads Milolii. Turn left by the sign drive three miles down the road to Ewalu Avenue, turn right drive down to the stop sign to Waenea Avenue turn left. Drive to the third intersection and turn right on Elima Avenue. Go a half block to a tan house left hand side of the road which is 88-1555. Daniel will have the house open for you and take you on a tour!

Year Purchased: 2007
About: Aloha. I am Cheryl Fortman the main owner of the property and we bought this house in 2012 after looking at 200 plus homes and condos. I am a first grade teacher in Fallbrook, California, San Diego county. That's been my job for 30 plus years and I still enjoy it! I love the quietness and remoteness of the house as I deal with the San Diego rat race all the time at home. My husband loves the lower bedroom fyi and my twelve year son loves the gameroom. We might retire one day to this house as I like it better than our house in California. It's much nicer than our house in California! I love hiking around the area and walking to the swimming hole which is two minutes away to snorkel. You take a right on kai and then three or 4 houses down on the left is a little bridge which you cross and you go down lava stairs and rope into the water or jump in. It's kind of Robinson Caruso style which kids love! At the top of the hill I often buy fish from this nice guy whose name starts with a 'D' he has sashimi grade ahi tuna, ono, and sometimes sailfish! I love to travel to the big island- its my home away from home and I am always willing to share house if its only me there and I will give a discounted rate because of that. I had lovely world travelers with me this summer that I really enjoyed and some really nice people from Texas that have rented the house 2 or three times now. I love to go to all the markets on the island- if you are interested in that please ask me about them and I would be happy to tell you about them. House is full of Art I have bought on the big island and from home goods store in San Diego. This vacation rental was a dream for two years that finally came true. The house is all I talk about when I am in California- that's how special this house is. Thank you for renting it! I really appreciate that!
Why Captain Cook, HI, USA:
The neighbours are great and have a live and let live philosophy which I appreciate! I love the look of the black lava rock against the blue ocean. The reason I bought the house was the humongous deck, the sunsets, the panoramic Pacific ocean view as you come down the hill and the ocean view from the deck. The sunsets are phenomenal and I almost have a 190 degree ocean view from the house. The kings trail is close to the house and you can hike on it. I like driving 5 minutes into the little fishing village and hiking into honomolino. Kayaking in papa Bay are great! I still havent come at Christmas time and winter when the whales are there as house is always rented out then but I hope to in the future. I hear you can kayak around the whales but I haven't ever done it. Often there are pods of dolphins in the bay and I love the little mailbox library up on Umi street but you gotta put a book in to take one! I love reading books on the deck and drinking a Mai Tai there at sunset. Also, there is a washer and dryer downstairs a lot of people appreciate.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
the deck, the sunsets, the king bed in the master, the walks, the oceanview, the nautical charm of the house, the fish wall in the family room and the family/living room, the gameroom which my son and kids from all over the world have enjoyed
