Keauhou Estates villa description

Sunset Villa is a luxury, private ocean-view retreat in Kona's most prestigious gated community of Keauhou Estates, which wraps around a championship 36-hole golf course. Situated on the most private lot within the development, this home enjoys dramatic ocean views from Keauhou Bay to Kona Bay. The home and setting feature extensive rock wall and landscaping work; designer interior and exterior finishes; bamboo flooring; sliding glass doors/screens on all four sides of the house to catch cooling breezes; artistic lighting; outdoor living room furniture; bar stools, premium mattresses, bedding and towels; plasma high definition TV/home theater and custom made teak cabinetry (including a queen size Murphy bed in the Private sleeping porch/media room); private gardens (including an outdoor shower); Bose stereo sound system and more. All bathrooms were upgraded in 2013 with new toilets, new sinks, granite counter tops, mirrors, and lighting.


Features of this home include two very private bedroom suites, at opposite ends of the home, and a private sleeping porch/media room (with a queen size Murphy bed in a custom made teak cabinet) with a half-bath just outside its french doors. You'll enjoy panoramic ocean views throughout the home, with unsurpassed privacy and quiet. There is a large covered lanai with outdoor living room furniture, a barbecue area, outdoor wet bar with small refrigerator, media room with plasma HDTV and home theater system, laundry room with washer and dryer, den off the master bedroom suite with a desk and wireless broadband Internet access and private enclosed garden/lanai with outdoor shower just off the master bedroom suite. The guest bedroom suite features a meditation garden and small lanai.

This architecturally designed and professionally decorated home boasts luxury details including high beam wood ceilings; quality new and antique furniture; an extensive art collection; wall-to-wall carpeting in the great room and bedrooms; tile floors in the bathrooms, kitchen and laundry room, bamboo flooring in the media room/sleeping porch; fully equipped gourmet kitchen, including high performance appliances; dramatic indoor and outdoor lighting; and well-equipped multimedia options. The high quality of the home's custom built furniture, antiques and original art create an aesthetically pleasing environment rarely found in vacation rentals! The private swimming pool has been resurfaced with a dark passive solar color, with designer glass tile around its edge. A salt-filter system eliminates the need for chlorine and feels smooth and silky to the swimmer.

This home's ideal location at the 500 foot elevation and screens on all fours sides ensures cooling breezes even during Kona's hottest days. The Keauhou Estates development fronts the beautiful and challenging 36-hole golf course at the Kona Country Club. In addition to Kona village just five miles to the north, Keauhou Shopping Center is a beautiful open air center just a few minutes drive from this home. This shopping center offers great shopping, dining, entertainment, and a multiplex movie theater. A variety of local beaches are just a few minutes from the house, including the island's most famous snorkeling beach - Kahaluu Beach Park. In addition, the rest of the Big Island, with its world-class resorts, signature golf course, and dramatic coast lines, are within easy reach from our convenient location. Volcanoes National Park, a two hour drive from Kona, is a fascinating day trip destination.

                                  Sunset Villa is located just 12 miles south of the Kona International Airport, 5 miles south of Kona village, and within a mile of the beach, golf, tennis, shopping, dining, cineplex, grocery and drug stores. Sunset Villa combines the best of all worlds, a central upscale location coupled with complete privacy, spectacular ocean views and a 24/7 security-attended entrance/exit.

                                  Features of this home include two very private bedroom suites, at opposite ends of the home, and a private sleeping porch/media room (with a queen size Murphy bed in a custom made teak cabinet) with a half-bath just outside its french doors. You'll enjoy panoramic ocean views throughout the home, with unsurpassed privacy and quiet.

                                   

                                  Owner info

                                  Year Purchased: 1999

                                  About the owner: I am a former CPA and entrepreneur who sold a business 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. 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 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.
