Captain Cook House Rental Photos and Description
South Kona retreat near ocean, 2bd/2ba sleeps 4 + Studio
Kona Dreams is a private retreat in Captain Cook, 35 miles south of Kona Airport. An easy drive on highways 19 & 11 along the dramatic coastline takes you past Kailua-Kona, to history rich Keauhou, Kealakekua, Captain Cook, and Honaunau, through the Big Island’s fertile agricultural region, where coffee grows alongside macadamia, cacao, vanilla beans, avocado, and an endless feast of tree ripened fruit.
A clearly marked turn takes you from an elevation of 1,100 ft through the quiet Kona Paradise community, right down to sea level and the ocean.
Park your car and walk for less than 60 seconds to the ocean. Look for turtles or even a monk seal resting on the beautiful black lava pebble beach.
This home was designed to capture every breeze. The interior is decorated with artwork the owners collected during their travels around the Pacific Rim. A spacious living area is equipped with a new flat screen TV, media player, guidebooks, and leisure reading. Comfortable furniture invites you to relax under the cathedral ceiling supported by solid ohia logs.
The airy master bedroom features a king size bed made of local ohia wood and has a separate walk-in closet, master bath, and a private lanai. The guest bedroom has a full bath and a lanai of its own. The kitchen is equipped with everything to make enjoyable meals from scratch, with complimentary Kona coffee to start your morning. While you enjoy sitting on the shaded lanai, watch the tropical sunset or look for breaching whales.
You may do laundry onsite, beach towels are provided. Wifi, high-speed broadband, and free telephone calls to the mainland US, Canada, and Guam keep you wired and connected.
The house sits on a lovingly landscaped lot with flowering orchids, plumeria trees, coconut palms. Feel free to pick luscious mangoes and limes in season.
The bay beyond the beach is well known for scenic snorkeling and excellent scuba diving. In the garage you will find a beach locker full of snorkel gear, water toys, beach furniture, umbrella and cooler to enjoy during your visit. Or take the kayak out for a paddle and look for dolphins swimming in the bay.
Detailed information about these and many other activities are available to guests, just ask.
A separate living area with a full bath that sleeps up to 3 more guests is occasionally available. Rates do vary depending on season and number of guests.
The excellent Kona Community Hospital is 18 miles north on Highway 11.
