Kealakekua Bay house description



Located at peaceful Kealakekua Bay, a small, quiet, low-key shoreline community. Walk the length of a football field to the beach. It is an ideal retreat for one or two couples. Only steps to enter the crystal clear water at the palm shaded beach, across from the Captain Cook Monument, for the best snorkeling in the islands. Pristine Kealakekua Bay is a protected marine preserve and underwater park providing numerous water activities and spinner dolphin sightings (and whales in winter). Hale Lana is removed from noise and traffic and is fully fenced and gated for added privacy. The home is a new superbly crafted tropical luxurious pole and beam design showcasing natural woods, Italian floor tile, granite counter tops, stainless appliances, new tropical furnishings and a ten jet spa tub. There are large indoor and outdoor walk-in tile showers. Entrance lock box with key and security code for easy check-in and out.
Free Secured Wireless internet access . Free local and unlimited long distance calls to US mainland and Canada.
Ocean water temperatures range consistently from 75 (in Feb) to 82 (in late summer).

At present, kayaking in the bay is by permit and through a number of tour companies or your own permit online at: jacqueline.m.velasco@hawaii.gov.
