Kealakekua Bay house description

E komo mai! Welcome to Keala Lani--our 'Heavenly Pathway.'

Just 35 minutes from the Kona airport, our beautiful Hawaiian home nestles among tropical flowers and coffee trees at a temperate 1200-foot elevation and offers you what has been called the best view in South Kona.

The deep blue waters of Kealakekua Bay and more than 180 degrees of skyline are yours to behold from almost every room, as well as from the three lanais (decks or porches) of our spacious, airy, and delightful home. Every evening the setting sun stages a glorious pageant as it bids goodnight to the islands.

Situated in prestigious McCoy Plantation subdivision, this 2+ bedroom, 2 bath home (which may also be available as a 3 bedroom/3 bath--please inquire) offers comfort, tranquility, and a true Hawaiian ambiance. And did we mention the stunning view? Our spacious home is ideally located, far enough from the town’s bustle to provide a peaceful haven, yet close to all your basic convenience--just 3 minutes to a large, well-stocked super-market and deli, as well as several excellent restaurants, post office, gas station, and numerous interesting shops and galleries.

In 10 minutes you can be in or on historic Kealakekua Bay, swimming or snorkeling in its magical crystalline waters. If the Hawaiian gods are smiling on you (and they may very well be), they will send our resident pod of spinner dolphins to leap, play and, yes, spin, around you. During winter and early spring, humpback whales also enjoying hanging out in these luxuriant waters.

A 20-minute drive to the north brings you to Kailua town (known as Kailua-Kona) with its premier surfing and snorkeling beaches, myriad fine restaurants, local markets, arts and crafts galleries, and wonderful stores both small and large to fulfill your soul and body. On your way to Kailua you will find more enticing places to shop and dine.

House Details: Street level home all on one level offers: bright and cheery kitchen with spacious area for culinary creation featuring cooktop and oven, refrigerator with ice and chilled-water dispensers, new Bosch dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, blender, coffee maker and coffee grinder for your fresh Kona brew. There is a breakfast bar where you can sit and sip and enjoy the view, or you can go out to the lanai and relax at the outside dining table. The convenient laundry room provides a large-capacity washer and dryer.



The great room features a comfortable sofa, recliner and armchairs, HDTV with DVR (55' LED/LCD, flat screen) DVD player, and surround-sound stereo with CD player and iPod dock. The beautiful teak dining set seats up to eight.

The roomy master suite offers you a comfy king bed, private lanai, walk-in closet, immense bathroom with double sink, spacious shower and a sunken Jacuzzi tub with a view that you can only see to believe! There is a bonus alcove off the master bedroom that is a perfect sleeping space for one adult or one or two children. It has a 'flip' sofa that converts to a double bed. Additionally, we have a crib available as well as two single futons.

The second bedroom has a queen bed and garden view. The bathroom (with tub/shower) is a few steps down the hall.

There is also a huge open lanai with lounge chairs, hot tub and gas grill. (This lanai may occasionally be shared with one other renter, so be sure to inquire if this is a concern.)

LOWER LEVEL may be available for groups of more than 4: PLEASE INQUIRE. It may be down but it is still up above the bay and has the same amazing view as the top floor. The bottom level of Keala Lani consists of a large family room with tiki bar and kitchenette, a bedroom with queen bed and killer ocean view, and a spacious bathroom with shower. There is a queen sleeper sofa in the family room and extra sleeping space on an enclosed porch. The lower level may also be rented as a separate unit ('Lani Iki'--see VRBO listing #171154).

We provide the amenities listed below as well as many other touches to make you feel at home: baby crib and highchair, toys, games, beach towels and chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear and picnic coolers.

Feel free to stroll through our one-acre farm and pick any fruit that is in season, such as avocados, papayas, bananas, mangos, figs and all types of citrus. Be sure to ask for a sample of our home-grown 100% Kona coffee!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: We are supposed to be retired, but since we moved to our little coffee farm in Kona, we are busier than ever. Come visit and see and sample the fruits of our labor--fresh brewed 100% Kona coffee from Keala Lani Farms or fresh-picked fruit--papayas, mangoes, starfruit, pineapples, oranges, limes and much more--depending on the season, of course.

              Why the Owner Chose Kealakekua Bay:
              Milt's parents and grandparents were born and raised on the Big Island. We were fortunate to be able to return in 2007 to this beautiful piece of paradise. When you experience the view from Keala Lani, you will understand why we named this home 'The Path to Heaven.'

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The Big Island is 'da best.' There is so much to do here--swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and dolphin viewing right here on Kealakekua Bay. Nearby, there are wonderful beaches for swimming, surfing or snorkeling and many other beautiful places to explore: valleys, volcanoes, waterfalls and historical sites. Great restaurants and shopping, too! You really have to experience the ALOHA for yourself.
