About Lorin Fluent

My wife, Terry, and I have been to the Hawaiian Islands many times. But, after visiting the Big Island we knew it was the place we would like to retire. We have four grown children and 4 grandchildren. We built this house as our retirement home, not just a vacation rental. But, before we retire and move to the Big Island we would like to share our Kona Paradise beach home with others.

Lorin Fluent purchased this house in 2006

Why Lorin Fluent chose Captain Cook

We fell in love with the Kona Coast and built in rural Kona Paradise because of the relaxing feeling we got while vacationing there. The people are very friendly and it became our home away from home. We believe that Pebble Beach, just steps away is our own private beach. Most of the time, we are the only people on the beach!

What makes this house unique

We relax on our lanai and count the whales as they breach (in the months of December to March). We very often see young whales following their mothers. It’s hard for us to decide what direction to travel when spending the day exploring because it’s beautiful going north and spectacular heading south. You can see beautiful beaches, snorkel, and kayak. Take a trip to Volcanoes National Park, and visit the many waterfalls along the way. You will never be bored. And if you enjoy amazing coffee, you are in the right place! You can smell the Kona coffee roasting during a leisure drive into town.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha Lorin and Terry,

We got in after dark last night and woke up this

morning in your beautiful oasis. The pictures truly

did not do this property justice--your love and care

for it is evident in every detail. Thank you so much

for creating this gorgeous place and for making it available to others.



We know we will love it here!

Perfect Paradise Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Were do I start, this property is just breathtaking. Views and landscape are just outstanding. I must say photos did not do justice to the beautiful home and setting. Quiet and friendly neighborhood and the lanai is simply marvelous!!

No need to worry all necessary equipment is there, from the beach material to advanced cooking stuff. Everything was perfectly clean and operational.
Must say the private outdoor shower was just perfect. Wish we could have stayed longer, will definitely be back to stay here again.

Thank you Lorin & Terry for your beautiful home. Really did a great job on this house its the perfect home away from home!

Great South Kona Location!

  • 4 of 5
This was our first trip to Kona and we were very glad we stayed in this home. The location was great for us. The drive down & up the property made for fun entertainment every time, the views were awesome & the landscape breathtaking. Cute & quiet neighborhood and private beach about 5-10 walk from house or minute drive down. The owners have thought of everything you would need during your stay, from beach towels, umbrellas, and coolers down to a water jug to bring along for fresh water rinsing while you are out! We hung out to watch the sunset everyday and was able to leave the doors open to the lanai all night since it was fully screened (brilliant!). They really did a great job on this house and it is a great get away from it all.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
We arrived late in the evening. The description does warn of the steep hill which is one mile long off the main highway. Don't worry, your car will make it up! When we walked into the home, which had the lights on for us, it literally was a dream come true. You do have to walk up about ten stairs to get to the main level of the home.The kitchen/living room are simply beautiful. The lanai is simply outstanding. The view is incredible, and plenty of chairs, etc for lounging. The home had all the small items we had forgot at the store coming in. Four 3 gallon containers of drinking water were there for us. The beach is about a five or ten minute walk or short drive, and in June it was absolutely divine. Not to mention the ample supply of masks, snorkels fins and towels, and the outdoor shower. the We cannot think of anything more the home could have. We have recommended this home to others, and we cannot wait to come back.

Thank you Lorin & Terry for the use of your beautiful home.

A really nice place!

  • 5 of 5
A great place! We like it quiet and this home in South Kona is just that. Clean, well maintained, a nice layout for our family of five.

One comment -- it is in SOUTH Kona, so it is about a 40 minute drive to downtown Kona. Not an issue for us. But for those who like the nightlife and wanna be closer, just note it is a 40 minute drive south.

We used this home as a launching point for all of our activities on the big island: hiking, boating, beaching, everything.

We had a great time!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! I am glad you enjoyed your stay.
Helpful hint: Recently opened Mamalahoa Bypass Road which connects to Alii Dr. cuts about 10 minutes off the commute to Kailua Kona. There is no traffic and the drive is beautiful and peaceful, hugging the shoreline.

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with my husband, 2-year-old daughter, mother and step-father. We all LOVED this property. In fact, after our 6 night stay, we moved over to the Hilo side for 3 nights, and we were all so sad/instantly nostalgic for this home. It's charming, absolutely clean, and makes you feel at home. The views were incredible and the screened in lanai was the best part. Not only was it airy and offered gorgeous views, but my daughter was 100% safe hanging out there, and everywhere else in the house. It's clear the owners understand the needs of families with members of all ages. Additionally, the kitchen was stocked, and we took full advantage of the snorkel equipment and boogie boards downstairs. Pebble beach at the end of the road was our favorite sunset location -- such a unique spot. We watched two whales very close to shore one night. We also enjoyed tons of other beaches, and simply fell in love with the Kona side of Hawaii. I know we'll be back! The beds and sheets could have been more comfortable, and the downstairs room was without a bathroom and really would just work for older/teenage kids or a single person, but it's hard to complain when everything else was perfect. I was initially concerned about the remoteness of the home, but ended up finding the location convenient to all spots on the island -- truthfully we could have stayed there the whole time (and wished we had) and done day trips to the Hilo side. Thank you for an awesome vacation with many, many memories. We all have little doubt that we'll return.
