Property description

Perhaps you have seen this unique contemporary house on HGTV's Off Beat American or the Travel Channel or on Fabulous Vacation Homes. Now is your chance to enjoy something different! This award winning all-concrete house is perched right on Kehena Point overlooking the beautiful Pacific ocean. Wake up to a breathtaking sunrise. Watch whales in season (November-April), and walk to a black sand beach (clothing optional) where the locals swim with the dolphins. Just a few minutes drive to the current lava flow viewing sight.

You will marvel at the architecture of this home. The unusual round windows provide stunning views from every part of the house. You enter at the middle floor with a living room/dining area plus covered lanai and loft area, and fully equipped kitchen with stainless LG 25 c.f. refrigerator/freezer,

Satellite TV provided on each floor. Flat screen on each floor. Stereo system with plug in for ipod or ipad. New - now with wireless internet! Going up the spiral staircase, you enter the master bedroom and bath with tiled shower and viewing deck. The upper lanai is perfect for star-gazing at night or whale watching and sunning during the day. Going down to the first floor is the second bedroom and bath, close to the laundry room and garden with outdoor shower and lawn with lounge chairs for sunning and enjoying the ocean views. Both bedrooms have queen beds with decorator linens.

Accentuating the interior are koa, mango wood and teak appointments and furniture, plus high-end appliances such as LG, Gaggenau and Bosch.

The main floor and master bedroom floor have lanais with stunning views of the ocean and cliffs below.

This area of Puna is lush with forest canopies, papaya fields and filled with old-fashioned Hawaiian charm. Just 15 minutes to quaint, colorful Pahoa town with its many great restaurants, boutiques and stores. About 40 miles to Volcano National Park and 45 miles to Hilo.

Kehena Point is the perfect getaway and a place you will remember for years to come! As one of our guests remarked, 'Leave your heels at home, immerse yourself into the laid back, poncho wearing hippie friendly, whale watching, swim with dolphin, organic loving community.'

Car: Necessary

Only a few minutes drive to lava flow viewing (as Pele permits). Clothing optional black sand beach within walking distance. About 10 miles to hot ponds.

Note: As of 10/2014, there is a lava flow slowly advancing towards Pahoa. This could be a once in a lifetime chance to witness a change in the Hawaii landscape, if the lava advances into the town. There is a possibility that the highway 130 could be covered by the lava. The County has already built several alternate contingency routes - good gravel roads for travel to and from the Puna area, if needed. The car rental companies will allow rental cars to use these roads.
