Surrounding area - Captain Cook is a small town just 15 minutes south of Kailua-Kona. There is a grocery store and restaurants near by. A few minutes down the mountain is Kealekakua Bay (Captain Cook's monument) and some of the best snorkeling and kayaking in the world; Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park better known as the City of Refuge; and Volcano National Park is just 90 miles south.
Climate - Due to our higher elevation, Pu'u Mahana is a perfect temperature of 75-80 during the day and 65-75 at night. In the morning as the sun rises, a breeze comes down from the mountain and in the evening a refreshing breeze blows up from the sea. Every room has ceiling fan to keep the air circulating and comfortable all throughout the year! No A/C necessary but bring a light jacket for cooler evenings.
Capacity - The house will comfortably sleep 10 adults (2 king size beds, 2 queen size beds, and 2 twins).
Beach access - Pu'u Mahana is located on the mauka (mountain) side of the highway and is just 15 minutes from City of Refuge and Kealakekua Bay (amazing snorkeling). In Kona visit Magic Sands and Kahalu'u, a short 20 minute drive from our property. The most pristine golden sand beaches on the island are located north of the airport and take just 45 minutes; Hapuna State Park, Kua Bay and Kekaha.
Come and enjoy our home away from home. This is Pu'u Mahana, our place of refuge and peace. We extend Aloha to you and your ohana!

About Jeni Herberger
We spent 2 years living in this beautiful home nestled in the slopes of Mauna Loa with our 3 kids. Business and education brought us back to the mainland recently but we have every intention of moving back to paradise some day soon. Enjoy our home in our absence! Aloha!
Jeni Herberger purchased this house in 2006
Why Jeni Herberger chose Captain Cook
Kona has long been a favorite place of ours and when the opportunity presented itself for us to relocate, this was our first choice. We fell in love with the home, the land and the peace and beauty the property offers.
What makes this house unique
Our friends, guests and ohana tell us they don't want to leave the property once they arrive. Everything you could imagine is right there; a resort-style pool, acres of fruit trees, an open house with incredible decor! Simply ono!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Yes, we would like to visit again. Pu'u Mahana is a beautiful place. It has just the right mix of comfort and quietude we were seeking. It is also more of the real Hawaii. The two weeks of doing little passed quickly and many of our planned sightseeing and other activities did not get done. So, there is still much to do next time.
