Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook, HI, USA:
Location, Location, Location. Gorgeous property with commanding views. Close enough to Kailua-Kona for shopping, their restaurants, and the more touristy things, but far enough away to experience "Real Hawaii".

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Experiencing the true Hawai'i, rural, beautiful, peaceful and private.
