Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: I am a former CPA and business owner who sold my company to PNC Bank and retired in 1998. Sunset Villa was purchased to provide my own sanctuary and residence. I have lived in the home full time in the past and have decorated, furnished, and equipped the home to create a perfect retreat for myself, family, friends, and guests.
Why the Owner Chose Keauhou Estates: This property simply offers unsurpassed quality of design/decoration/furnishing and is equipped to provide all needs. Because this was my full time home for a number of years, the home is designed and furnished beyond virtually any vacation rental on the market. Couple this with the safety of a gated, 24/7 guarded community and unique privacy and tranquility for the perfect relaxing vacation. The house is situated on a small hill at the end of a cul-de-sac, so most neighbors are about 20' below the level of the house. The only house on the same level as Sunset Villa is behind my 8' rock wall.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Very unique and private setting. Furnished and equipped beyond virtually any vacation rental in the market.
The second I walked into this house and experienced the view and privacy, I made the decision to purchase.
