About Joni Wiggins & Jim Vastola

Our busy lives working in the Silicon Valley Event Production and Surgical fields left little time to enjoy our vacations, so as we started to approach retirement age we wanted to find a home we could enjoy and share for years to come. So when the opportunity finally presented itself, we jumped on it. We call our little piece of heaven 'Blue Hawaii'. And when you see it you'll know why.

Joni Wiggins & Jim Vastola purchased this house in 2014

Why Joni Wiggins & Jim Vastola chose Captain Cook

When a friend says, ”Hey do you want to come stay at my house in Kona, you look like you’re ready for a vacation?”. Do you just get on a plane and hope it’s an O.K. kind of house somewhere near a beach?

It is an Island after all-at some point you’ll get to a beach. Right?

The first time we visited Kona Paradise it went something like that. A friend offered up his Kona Vacation Rental to us for Thanksgiving 2013. We arrived at the airport, got our rental car and stopped as suggested at Costco on the way down. After stocking up on a weeks worth of supplies like coffee, steaks, wine and beer, we headed south. When we saw the Kona Paradise sign, made the right hand turn onto Kaohe Road and started down that winding, breath taking hill, we knew we were in for something beyond special-it was spectacular.

After unloading the car, we found ourselves mesmerized by the most amazing 180° coastal views of the Kona coast. This wasn't just a vacation rental on an island in the pacific - this was a stunningly beautiful oasis that we had all to ourselves for a whole week.

We could hear the ocean raking over the black pebbles on the beach below us. We watched for whales breaching, and dolphins cruising the coastline looking for fun and frolic. We slept among the stars out on the lanai the entire time, and swore that if an opportunity arose we would make this area our home some day. In 2014 we purchased Blue Hawaii. Our dream come true. It brought peace and serenity to our hearts and minds. Took us from our hustle and bustle go-go-go lifestyle on the mainland and brought us back to what was important. Us. Happy and laid back. Loving life. We hope your stay at Blue Hawaii can bring something back into your life that you perhaps have forgotten. Maybe a little rest, relaxation and dare we say...Magic!

Enjoy!

The Owners

Relaxing home... away from home!

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation stay at Captain Cook was far more relaxing than we could have ever imagined. Very quiet. You have ALL the amenities of home, and then some. The views are spectacular, with beautiful,surreal sunsets straight out over the lanai. Everything is modern, very clean and up-to-date and even has wifi in case you're feeling detached (easy to do) from the world. Although we didn't find ourselves using it that often.
Sightseeing and snorkeling was very fun. Make sure you go Coffee Tasting while you're there!

Once in a lifetime you stay in a place so incredible

  • 5 of 5
Once in a lifetime you stay in a place so incredible you can't possibly communicate nor articulate just how special it is. For just a split second the world stops spinning, each breath you take, transports you future and further away from the stress of home and completely relaxes you. That’s the feeling I felt the moment I walked in. This is definitely a 10/10! We enjoyed watching the whales swim by while sitting on the Lanai, This home has incredible ocean views, is clean, and a must stay if available during your trip. We can’t wait to come back every year.

The house felt like home instantly. There is nothing more that you could ask for. It was clean, very equipped with anything and everything you could want or need. The view was beautiful, it was a relaxing and quiet location. The owners were more than accommodating. Definitely would go back

home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Staying here was like being home except with a fantastic view and perfect weather. Everything I needed was already there. Coffee pot hot eater kettle, everything needed to cookserve and eat was ready to be used. They really thought about it and furnished this wonderful house as if someone was going to live here. The beach at the bottom of the hill is a gem. We snorkeled, kayaked and just hung out. Being in coffee country was fantastic with tasting and samples everywhere. This is the real paradise with the locals. Great food and views with town just a short trip away.

Labor Day Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time at Blue Hawaii!!! The beach at the bottom of the hill has the BEST snorkeling of my life and I'm a scuba diver, so I have seen quite a bit of good snorkeling. We even saw a small, white tip reef shark. The beautiful drive to town gave us time to chat about all of our experiences we had and were looking forward to. Check out Kona Boys to rent a kayak or buy a token to take home to remember your visit. With ChoiceMart grocery close by, we never went without the essentials. The home is impeccable and new and that sunset...I must have taken 500 photos every night! The cool breeze was plenty to keep you cool - no need for air conditioning. Close enough to everything but far removed at the same time. We felt like we were in jungle right outside town. The bird watching is very cool - grab the bird book off the shelf and ID the colorful, feathered friends flying by. Keep watch for the goats and wild boars. You can hear them frequently but they are fun to try to find in the brush. Beautiful oasis! Don't give it a second thought. Rent Blue Hawaii and have a relaxing vacation with your family and friends!!!

Amazing Retreat-Fantastic Views and wow what fun!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Blue Hawaii with two other couples and had the most amazing time. The house is beautifully decorated and immaculate. It has everything one could ever need. Large fully supplied kitchen, lots of fridge space and the flotiki rug in the living room had us making rug-angels in it because it is so soft. Even with six people in the house we still had plenty of room to get ready, park, sit and hang out. We must have taken a thousand sunset photos. We watched goats, mongoose, wild boars and played with neighbor's pets. Everyone we encountered was friendly, we were even offered to borrow some sea kayaks from another home owner when we were at the pebble beach one day snorkeling. Saw tiger sharks and eels. What a beautiful place! We were able to experience the peace and tranquility that getting out of the city offers yet still be within an hour if we wanted to go into "town". Coffee tasting was a great pass time. And we were able to do some deep sea fishing in Kona (One of our group caught a Marlin). We'll be back as soon as possible. Just booked December dates. Thank you so much for sharing your aloha with us!
