Overlooking historic Kealakekua Bay, Lani Iki (“Little Heaven”) is a spacious 1 + bedroom, 1 bath apartment with a view of forever. Conveniently located in South Kona (Captain Cook), Lani Iki is less than 5 minutes from a large, well-stocked supermarket as well as many other shops and restaurants; it is about 35 minutes from the Kona airport. Lani Iki rests among coffee trees and tropical flowers at a comfortable 1200-ft elevation, offering its guests a tranquil resting place graced by sweet-scented breezes and birdsong. Kealakekua Bay, just 10 minutes away, is arguably the best spot on the island for swimming, dolphin viewing & snorkeling. The village of Kailua-Kona with its great shops, galleries and restaurants is just a 25-minute scenic drive away.

You can enjoy the spectacular view from all rooms of this bright, airy apartment with its cheery Hawaiian decor. The bedroom has a queen bed, and the large living area has a queen sleeper sofa, comfortable rattan seating, flat-screen TV, iPod/cd player, and bamboo tiki bar. There is additional sleeping space for 1 or 2 persons ('tropical shabby-chic') on the enclosed porch. The kitchenette has full-size sink, refrigerator, gas stove with oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and all the dishes and cooking utensils you will need. Among the many amenities are wireless Internet, satellite TV, local phone, all bed, bath and beach linens, hot tub, gas grill, shaded dining area and off-street parking. Laundry facilities are available.

When you step out onto the large open deck, you will fully appreciate the breathtaking view of the farmlands and lava fields that slope to the ever-changing Pacific. It’s a great place for socializing, sunning or snoozing on one of the lounges. Enjoy cooking a tasty meal on the gas grill or having a soothing soak in the relaxing spa. Picture yourself with your favorite companion and a glass of wine, watching the crimson sun sink through the evening mist at the close of another perfect day in your Little Heaven.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: We are supposed to be retired, but since we moved to our little coffee farm in Captain Cook, South 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, figs, 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. We think Kealakekua Bay is one of the most beautiful and magical places on earth. When you experience the view from Lani Iki, you will understand why we named it 'Little Heaven.'

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              The Big Island is 'da best.' There is so much to do here--swimming, snorkeling, and dolphin viewing right here on Kealakekua Bay. Nearby, there are wonderful beaches for swimming, kayaking, surfing or snorkeling and many other beautiful places to explore: valleys, volcanoes, waterfalls and historical sites. Great restaurants and shopping, right here in Captain Cook, and nearby in Kealakekua, Kainaliu and Kailua-Kona. But words can't adequately describe what we have here; you really have to experience the ALOHA for yourself!
