Property description

Nestled within a stand of lush tropical plants, this unique cottage offers a delightful indoor/outdoor living experience – 3 of 4 walls are screened, opening the studio to the sensual tropical air that is such a wonderful part of Hawai'ian living.

Outside, a covered lana'i and outdoor shower (great after a trip to nearby beaches), are bordered by a bamboo grove and banana trees. A pool and hot tub are all steps away, as are mangoes, avocados and papayas.

Inside is furnished with rattan furniture, a dreamy queen-sized bed, and plenty of space for relaxing. The kitchen is compact and complete – featuring a dishwasher, microwave, 4-burner gas cook top, and convection/toaster oven (but no 'full-size' oven). Custom-built bamboo cabinetry ties everything together in unmistakable island style.

We loved designing, building and living in our little cottage. It gives us great pleasure to share this love with like-minded guests who are seeking something more authentic than your typical 'condo experience'.

For those concerned with last years Dengue Fever event, the Hawaii Health Department reported the last case in March 2016, and reports that they are confident that Dengue Fever is no longer an active concern for the Big Island of Hawaii.

Car: Necessary

This unique cottage is located on the south Kona coast, just minutes from the best snorkeling in the Hawai'ian islands.

You will also be in the famed Kona coffee region, where some of the best coffee in world is grown. You can sample this coffee, or take an informative tour, at nearby roasters.

Not to be missed is the Volcano's National Park, 1 1/2 hours drive from this location. Watch the earth being formed before your eyes when you visit the Kilauea crater.

One of the State of Hawai'i's two National Historic Parks is the 'City of Refuge', located 5 minutes, or 1.6 miles from the cottage. This historic and restored ruins will give you a sense of the island's fascinating history, and is adjacent to enticing 'Two Step' snorkeling. There is also a nice white sand beach about 15 minutes south of our cottage!

There is a small coffee shop/cafe one mile up the road in Honaunau that serves fresh local Kona coffee, homemade goodies, and breakfast and lunch.

The amazing Fruit Stand is just a bit further south and has fruits that you will have never even heard of!

Painted Church is a well-known attraction. It is a 10 minute walk from the cottage, and is a simple wooden structure whose hand-painted interior decor was meant to replicate the glory of the cathedrals. Catholic services are held and are posted. You will be welcome.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are freshly retired and love the idea of having this wonderful island getaway to share with people. Rennie was a software developer, and Hope was a property manager. We love to travel, especially when warm water is involved! Although we have traveled many places, this is our favorite place to enjoy rest and relaxation.

Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook, HI, USA:
The first time we arrived here, we thought this was the perfect place to spend our island vacation. Being so close to great snorkeling, beaches and close enough to Kona for a night out, we loved this getaway cottage so much that we returned a year later to purchase it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Being in a beautiful tropical garden, with the pool, hot tub and gorgeous view of the ocean and mountain volcano, this place is sublime.
