About Tim and Abbie Clark - Owners

We both love to scuba dive and snorkel, and Hawaii has some of the best areas to do just that. Which is why we picked this house. We want other people around the world to enjoy what we have discovered here in Hawaii and enjoy it, and our home, as much as we do.

Tim and Abbie Clark - Owners purchased this house in 2001

Why Tim and Abbie Clark - Owners chose Captain Cook

When we were looking for homes on the Big Island, this one stood out from the others we looked at. The location was perfect, not to far away from Kona and the beaches, but still has that country feel and the privacy that we were looking for.

We were getting tired of the hotel scene, too many people, too much noise and just not the privacy that we were looking for when we vacation. We wanted more of a home feel where we knew we could relax and recharge. And that is exactly what we found here. We know that you will feel the same way the minute you walk in.

The layout of the home and the size of the rooms just had the 'Wow' factor we were looking for. That's actually what we said as soon as we walked in was, 'WOW', so we knew it was for us. We know that you will feel the same way when you walk thru front entry door.

We feel at home here, after a long day exploring all that Hawaii has to offer. We love to scuba dive and snorkel, and we are just minutes away from some of the best diving and snorkel sites. And the when you come home there is plenty of room for everyone to relax and hang out, and the pool and hot tub are just the thing to have to make the end of the day great, while watching the sun set over the ocean, which is always so spectacular to see. Truly Paradise!!

What makes this house unique

The location of the home is perfect! Only a short drive (7-8 minutes) to wonderful pristine waters to snorkel, swim and kayak and in the same amount of time will find grocery, fruit stands, gas, and restaurants. Personally, we have enjoyed the peaceful quality of the neighborhood and home as a sanctuary, far from the busy-ness of the world yet convenient enough to hop in the car to pick up take-out, a movie or even an afternoon latte.

With spectacular views and weather to match this was the ideal lodging. The house was warm and inviting and was filled with everything we could need. There was a small grocery store nearby so we could easily get food. The pool and cabana were the topping on the cake. Every morning and night the sunrise and sunsets put on a spectacular show. We hated to leave. We would highly recommend this beautiful place to stay.

We had a wonderful stay. I have rented a dozen plus houses on the islands and hands down this is the best we have ever had. From the ease of renting from Tim to the cleanliness, well stocked kitchen, comfort, and beauty of the property we couldn't be happier.

We were a group of 9 ranging in age from 18 to 72 and the house fit our group perfectly. The house is very spacious with plenty of room to spread out. You never feel like you are on top each other especially in the kitchen which was large enough for us all. The property is very secluded and the grounds are gorgeous. We enjoyed the many different native plants and wildlife and you feel like you are in your own little paradise.

The pool area with the hot tub and cabana are so relaxing and a great place to relax with a wonderful view of the ocean. The cabana provides welcome shade and in the event of a passing rainstorm a great place to watch it pass by.

We spent many hours on the lanai. The lanai is the perfect spot to sit and enjoy the quiet of the morning with your breakfast and coffee with beautiful views of the ocean. In the evening the lanai also had the best sunset views.

We enjoyed the location of the house. Being up a little higher it was very quiet and peaceful. We were close enough to access things to do, but far enough away from the big hotels that we felt like locals. We were a short drive from the best gelato, fish tacos, coffee plantations, smoothies and small farms. We were able to take day trips to the South Point and Papakolea Beach (green sand beach), Volcanoes National Park, and the North end (Hawi and Pololū Valley). Within minutes from the house is the Puʻuhonua o Hōnaunau National Historical Park and Two Step Beach for snorkeling. (Tim and Abbie also had all the gear needed which was great!)

It isn't often that all things work out so well, but you can tell how much Tim and Abbie love their home they share with others. We can't wait to go back.

Great Views

  • 5 of 5

Our group included five adults and we all had plenty of room to stretch out with our own bedroom and most of us had our own bath. It was very quiet (except the coqui frogs and chickens!) and to watch the sunset on the lanai was awesome. We could sit there every night forever and watch the sunset. There was a very nice fruit basket waiting for us that we had no problem eating and everything was delicious. The accommodations were fantastic and the kitchen was stocked and ready to go with everything needed to prepare a meal, plus the pantry had extras just in case you needed them. The pool area was our favorite with the hot tub and the great little cabana. It had a fridge which made it great to not have to go back to the house for a beverage. Tim was a pleasure to work with and was very quick at getting back to us with any questions or issues we had. Tim and Abby have thought of everything you might need to make your stay wonderful. If we ever get back to Kona we would definitely stay here. Truly an awesome home.

just fantastic

  • 5 of 5

What a great place. It is so quite and peaceful. The pool and hot tub was so relaxing after a day of family outings. We all had our own bedrooms and bathrooms. I just cannot say enough about the house and all the accommodations. It was just fantastic. I would highly recommend this place. If we were to come back to the big island, this is the place I would stay. We all had a great time. Thank You Tim and Abby.
