Kehena house description

Welcome to your beautiful, private island retreat! Walk through the sun-dappled yard as the steady ocean breezes embrace you. Be delighted as you enter this custom, open-planned vacation home, thoughtfully designed with high ceilings, ample windows and light-filled spaces. Allow the magic of the Big Island to enter your soul, as you feel yourself begin to relax and rejuvenate. The living room floor and entry has a surround of Chinese green slate, carpet in the center. The ceiling soars above while a view of the ocean is seen beyond the French doors as you enter the rear covered deck. Furnished in a relaxed/Zen style with a large sofa, a large quantity of pillows, a banana-leaf woven lounge chair, and a simple Asian cabinet which conceals the entertainment center (Panasonic 32' flat screen TV, Sony DVD player and Surround sound system). Furnishings are carefully chosen for comfort and quality.


Additional House Details: The kitchen has ceramic tile flooring, natural wood custom cabinetry with easy sliding drawers, a large pantry and refrigerator, wall oven, gas range top, granite bar with alabaster lighting, and custom wood-framed windows that slide easily letting in the nearly constant NE trade winds (the kitchen sits in the NE corner of the house). The dining room adjoins the kitchen, just beyond the bar counter. It boasts a Danish retro-modern teak and cherry wood dining table with six original matching chairs, new bamboo flooring, and it opens onto a great covered deck which has privacy and ocean views, plus an additional outdoor dining table and four chairs. The deck also has a sweet little love seat and a teak Adirondack chair.

The bedroom is private from the rest of the house and has incredible ocean views as well as sunrise and sunset vistas. The floor is slate tile and opens onto a sunny deck from the sliding glass door. One can occasionally see the red/orange glow from the lava flows in the west. Orange, tangerine, tangelo, and meyer lemon trees produce abundantly just outside. White pineapple patches guide the way to the new meditation pavilion while ohia, monkeypod, fig, loquat, dragon fruit, soursop, starfruit, plus many tropical flowers, grace the yard in their turn.

This house just feels right!

To Do Options & Recommendations: 10 minute drive to view lava river flowing into ocean with steam plume, swim with dolphins at Kehena Black Sand Beach, watch whales from the cliffs November-March, swim with or view turtles (honu) in Kapoho (15 minutes drive), star-gazing, warm ponds, tide pool exploration, steam vents, volcanic crater lake (Green Lake also called Hale Mahina), farmers' markets (SPACE market at Belly Acres on Saturday mornings; Maku'u Market on Sunday near Pahoa). Events and classes such as yoga, dance, and healing arts at Kalani Resort and also at SPACE.

Check in time is 4pm. Check out time is 11 am. You may request late or early check in/out and I can see if it's possible. Aloha.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1990

                      About the owner: I'm fortunate to have been a longtime resident of the wild and spectacular Puna Coast since 1981. I've witnessed the powerful and creative force of Pele firsthand, and I'm thrilled to share this unique experience with new visitors. I am a home builder and designer and I consider this one to be my finest. I love to cook, and designed the kitchen to be functional and beautiful. I love plants and enjoy gardening and landscaping, which is reflected in the park-like grounds. I hope you find my home to be as comfortable and yet inspiring as I have over the years. It is my joy to offer this home to you.

                      Why the Owner Chose Kehena:
                      I built my former home here shortly after purchasing the lot in 1989. There's no other spot like it! It sits on a slight hill at the edge of state land, which is unspoiled 1955 a'a lava covered in grey-green lichen and dotted with young ohia trees, beyond which the blue pacific ocean beckons.... Kalapana is in the sun-drenched 'blue belt' of Puna, where it is more likely to be bright blue sky and gentle flowing breezes. The area is wild and free, where many report they can sense the creative volcanic energy.
