About Mikie

My great grandparents traveled from Portugal to the Hawaiin Islands and settled in Maui in the late 1800s. I was born in Maui and reared in Oahu. I went to Farrington High School and graduated when I was 17. I was married the same yr. and also had my first child. By the time I was 21, I had 4 children. I moved to San Diego in 1960, remarried and had my 5th child. I went into Real Estate sales in San Diego and sold RE for 20 yrs. By that time I had several rentals and retired from RE and lived off the income of my rentals. It was hard work

but it paid off in time.

Why Mikie chose Captain Cook

My husband Gary loved fishing and when we went to Kona for a vacation, he fell in love with it.

We wanted to build our home here, so we looked for a lot. We both wanted to

be by the ocean, however, it was slim pickings finding a lot on the ocean or by the ocean. We heard about Kona Paradise from a Realtor who showed us our lot. We were so excited because not only was it ocean front but it also was a swimming beach. It is very rare in Kona to have a beach that you can walk into and swim or snorkel without having to cross over sharp lava rocks.

What makes this house unique

It is so wonderful to just sit and listen to the waves washing thru the pebbles on the beach. In the winter time when the surf high, it is such a beautiful sight to see the large waves crashing down on the beach. I love watching the whales as they go by to settle in the coves south of us and birth their calfs before going back up north. I also love to see the dophins that come and visit our cove. My huband and I would anchor our boat in the cove and then go fishing. Just a few miles out we would catch a lot of fish that we'd share with our wonderful friends and nieghbors. Kona Paradise is truly paradise.

Best ever

  • 5 of 5
This home has it all. We did not use the golf clubs because no one wacted to leave. My father in law refused to go anywhere because "I'm already here." My wife is a realtor and she and her partner were shocked at how great the house is.
Check in was not smooth. We arrived at dusk and the 4 on the lockbox was stuck so it would not open . Flashlight was not next to lockbox The only phone number our email gave was the housekeeper. She came over and before she arrived the lockbox opened on the 15th try. Only glitch. Was sad to leave and would stay there again in a heartbeat

Owner's Response: Thank you for your helpful feedback. We are so sorry the lock box failed for your party and the flashlight was missing! We have since replace the lock box and missing flashlight. We will make sure the manager's number is more available to future guests.

Nice ocean front location with large lanai! Listen to the waves!

  • 4 of 5
We had an enjoyable stay. Great views from inside and outside of the ocean & pebble beach. Best part about this home is the large lanai -it is as big as the living/kitchen area. There is plenty of seating and eating options on the lanai. There is a ceiling fan as well as a type of shade covering (which unfortunately was not movable - it is good for blocking afternoon sun, but in the morning, it would be nice to have it roll up. You can see through it, but would be nicer without it). We spent a lot of time just sitting on the lanai, watching and listening to the ocean. At night the sound of the waves gently lulled us to sleep. The owner was great to deal with, very responsive. The house is well stocked, from dishes, bath towels, beach towels, pots, pans, condiments, etc. There was Kona coffee for us when we arrived. Nice! There is a nice large outside gas grill that made grilling fresh fish purchased at the Choice Mart a great option for dinner. There is copious information in the house in 2 binders. Inside the kitchen has a butcher block island, which is great for preparing meals. The kitchen is large and well appointed. The living/dining area had a large flat screened tv and a nice selection of Island music DVDs. I did note that it seemed the cable did not come in HD? Not sure, I may have been working the remote incorrectly. We didn't spend much time watching TV anyway! The location is South of Captain Cook in a large development called Kona Paradise. The house is all the way down at the bottom of the hill (thus the oceanside location). While the road is steep at times, I had no problem driving up or down, just put the car into low gear as directed by the owner. In terms of the location, you are quite a bit out from the closest town. It was about a 30 minute drive to most restaurants in Capt. Cook, the larger grocery store, etc. There is a fruit stand that is close by, as well as a soft sand beach (Hookeena I believe) that is nice and well worth a visit. The beach in front is a pebble beach for the most part and the water was too rough for swimming when we were there. It is visited frequently by the people in the neighborhood, but they didn't bother us at all. Only comment is that the furniture is a bit "tired" and could stand updating (stains on sofa, carpets on deck). Kitchen would benefit from handles on cupboards.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5
Dear VBRO readers,
Thank you for all of your reviews...always helps me to find great places! This was no exception...a beautiful house, lovely lanai, and crashing waves...could it get better?

Although the waves were too rough to swim in, we so enjoyed watching the majesty of their crashing. The local beach, five miles away was wonderful for swimming, snorkeling, and boogie boarding. We hiked into Captain Cook (my 60 year old husband and I)...and the hike back was really not too bad. Snorkeling beyond beautiful.

As we are Catholic, we went to the Painted Church for Christmas. What a lovely, warm congregation. Yarn leis and cookies after. Really one of the most moving services we have ever attended.

We met a little cat who we called "Puff". If you see him, he/she is beyond friendly. Please pet him for us.

We also saw mountain goats...be sure to go all the way on the Kings Path South to the sea arches.

Simply wonderful, you will love it.

WOW - WHAT AN AWESOME PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I met our son, daughter-in-law and grandson for a vacation and it was beyond our expectations. The house is beautiful, well maintained and everything you'll need for a wonderful stay. At the house, most of our time was spent on the lanai because of the views. Sunsets to enjoy, meals cooked on the grill, snorkling, swimming, walking, listening to music and falling asleep to the sound of ocean's waves. Great location, cool family history to this home and you can believe the pictures because it is what it is - AWESOME!

We stayed at Paradise Ocean Hale recently and I can say that the house was very clean, comfortable and relaxing. The best part, as most have said, is the lanai. We didn't even use the living room or dining room in the house because all our spare time was spent on the lanai every morning and night and any other times that we were at the house.
The beds are very comfortable and the house is very well appointed with almost everything you need except for your food. Paper, plastics, bottled water, spices and condiments in the fridge are all waiting for your use.

My husband and I have been many places snorkeling and here on the pebble beach was one of the best places we've snorkeled. The colorful fish and coral were all a sight to see everyday. The pebbles keep the water clean and clear unlike most sandy beaches and you see fish right upon entering the water. There is a small black sand beach about a 5 minute walk to the north. We even saw some dolphins off the point one day.

Absolutely wonderful base location for touring the island we went north to Kona and south to South point. The drive is nothing....just takes some time to creep down it and once you're at the end of the road you're at Paradise Ocean Hale, truly an escape.

Private, quiet, clean and well equipped...and right on the ocean

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I stayed here for just over a week and loved it. The house is huge, immaculately clean, well-equipped, and comfortable (good beds, lots of comfy furniture, etc). And best of all, it's quiet and private, and looks out over Pebble Beach and the big blue pacific.

This home is in the south end of South Kona - so it is well away from the crazy busy tourist/resort areas. It's a 15 min drive to Ho'okena Beach, which has black sand, decent snorkelling, and often dolphins hanging about. Also about 25 min to Honaunau Bay and City of Refuge, where the snorkelling is amazing. Swimming and snorkelling also very nice at pebble beach, though the surge can be strong so watch the rocks and bring water shoes. Also because it's well out of Kona, it's not that long a drive to South Point and Volcano Park, both worth a visit.

The highlight of this place is the lanai/deck, which is massive, covered (ie, shady), and has tons of comfortable furniture. We watched the sunset out there every night. The house is also bright and breezy thanks to lots of windows and screened patio doors.

When renting a vacation spot sight unseen, it can be hard to know if a place will be as nice as advertised. This home is a great bet.

Some other reviewers have noted the steep drive - it is very steep but we had zero problems in our rental car. Also, someone was unhappy because the beach below the house isn't private property. It is the community beach for the subdivision, and so there are people coming and going (the house is just next to and above the small parking area people use). There are way fewer people coming to this beach than any other we visited, and we had no problems with noise. The house is above the beach, and there is a rock wall separating it, so the lanai is still really private and you don't see or hear people on the beach for the most part.

If you visit Honaunau Bay/City of Refuge - be sure to bring lunch or dinner to eat in the picnic area, which is the most picturesque spot we've been so far (sand, black lava, coconut palms swaying...) - ask park staff how to find it - the access road is kind of hidden and few people use it as a result.
