Honaunau house description

Hele Mai! Come and get away to our cozy country home with an amazing 180 degree coastline sunset view. Nestled in the mountains this home has unobstructed coastline views. It is very private and on a 5-acre lot with a large yard, in Honaunau overlooking the coastline from the City of Refuge to Kealakekua Bay. The lanai with awesome views is a great place to watch the sunset, and sip your morning coffee.

Our 3-bedroom home sleeps 5-6, and is furnished with touches of the tropics. The landscaping is very tropical with many varieties of native Hawaiian and other plants including, Palms, Hibiscus, Orchids, Mango, Oranges, Avocados, Papaya and much more (you are welcome to pick the fruit in season when it ripens). Coffee and macadamia nut trees abound. Wild turkeys roam the property. The house is situated on a hill to offer you a spectacular view of Kealakekua Bay; with cool breezes throughout the day and night (it is especially cool at night). Listen to the sounds of country living in this peaceful setting that is a great place to relax. The kitchen is fully equipped so you will feel at home. A washer and dryer is situated outside for your convenience.

The City of Refuge and Honaunau Beach are located approximately 4 miles away. Local stores, restaurants and shops are nearby. There are a variety of eateries if you want to experience local cuisine: Da Poke Shack (rated #1 by Yelp) recently opened a 2nd location a stones throw from our home, and a slew of other eateries are nearby.

Outdoor pursuits are readily available with hiking trails, snorkeling (and other water sports) or simply relaxing and meditating in the outdoors. Honaunau has something for everyone.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1967

          About the owner: Honaunau is one of our favorite places on earth. Experiencing the hidden beauty of Kona is something we wanted to share with others.

          Why the Owner Chose Honaunau:
          This is a historic family property. In addition to the scenic beauty and tranquility of South Kona, visitors will get a chance to experience Kona from a 'local' point of view.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          It is like heaven on earth. Very peaceful and serene with a spectacular view of Kealakekua Bay. It is on 5 acres of agricultural land and is lush with fruit trees (oranges, mango, papaya, avocado) and lush tropical foliage. I love watching the wild turkeys strutting through the yard followed by the chickens. We get away to recharge our batteries after the hubbub of the city. I also love to take the scenic drive to Volcano through the southern most part of the island (which begins when you take a left turn out of the driveway and drive around the island). It has some of the most breathtaking views of the Big Island I have ever experienced. Side trips to Milolii, Hookena, South Point and Naalehu are must do's.
