Private Homes house description

SEE THE RATE SECTION FOR OUR SHORT NOTICE RATE.

SEE THE LINK TO OUR VIRTUAL TOUR BELOW AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS LISTING !

Welcome to our beautiful executive home on the sunny Kona Coast! The views are spectacular from any of the 5 lanais! This home was the personal residence of the architect who designed and built it. The house is spacious with over 2000SF laid out with large comfortable open rooms. There are too many features to cover them all, but you will love every minute of your stay here. The setting is quiet, private, and peaceful - perfect for your romantic stay in Paradise.

The house sits on a 1/2 acre that is a tropical garden of flowering trees and shrubs. Fruit trees include papaya, grapefruit, orange, avocado, lychee, and lots of macadamia nut trees. There are skylights throughout the home that, along with the vaulted ceilings, make this house sunny and open. Enjoy your morning Kona coffee out on the dining room lanai next to our beautiful rock waterfall and koi pond. The unobstructed ocean and coastline views from the covered living room and master bedroom lanais are spectacular!

The master bedroom wing is a sanctuary. Windows all around make the space light and airy. It has its own lanai facing the ocean and is perfect for reading, listening to music, or taking a nap. You won't believe the bathroom suite. It has a large tiled walk in shower stall with glass walls and door, plus a separate jetted soaking tub, and vanity. There are 2 private toilet rooms - one with its own vanity, and the other has a skylight and laundry chute. There is also a roomy walk-in closet.

Downstairs is the second bedroom with its own sunny lanai. There is a spacious full bathroom, and a large laundry room. The family sitting room has a sleeper sofa and a love seat to visit, nap, or watch TV. Sliding glass doors open to a lanai and out to the large tropical yard.

We don't want you to miss out on any of the many great restaurants in Kona, but dining at the house will be a treat. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for making a snack or feeding a family gathering. There is a radiant cooktop, convection microwave and wallovens, side-by-side refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, and all of the countertop appliances. Dine at the beautiful teak dining room table or out on any of the lanais.

Compare the cost and qualify of a stay in even the nicest hotel rooms to the beauty, space,and tranquility of your private vacation home.

                            Also known as Makalawena Beach, this is an out in plain sight best kept secret on the Big Island. You have to earn the use of this spectacular series of 3 beaches separated by rocky areas by a 20 minute hike in. This beach park is only 10 minutes from the house only 2.5 miles north of the airport just past milepost 89 and is easy to miss the dirt road access. You will pass through a gate and at the end of the road you start your hike in. There are no facilities at all, so pack in what you need. Sound like too much work? Believe me, if you want a piece of paradise and hardly another person around, make the effort.

                          The Big Island has so much to offer. From the observatory atop Mauna Loa to the Black Sand Beach at the City of Refuge, there are so many sights to see and activities to do. The snorkeling and diving are phenomenal. Catch a record Marlin or take home some Mahi Mahi for dinner. Zip line over a tropical forest, or hike into see one of the many beautiful waterfalls on the island. You have to visit the Volcano National Park and maybe take a helicopter ride to watch the lava flow into the ocean.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About the owner: We are long time Alaskans looking forward to retiring and an end to the long cold winters. We have traveled extensively throughout the world and believe there is no better place than the Big Island of Hawaii.

                          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                          We have been visiting the islands for almost 40 years, often for many months at a time. Of them all, the Big Island offers the most space and diversity. The Kona Coast is the best place with perfect weather year round and lots to do. We look forward to our future retirement when we can be in Kona all of the time.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          There is nothing better than walking out of the house in the morning and picking a ripe papaya or grapefruit for breakfast. Then sitting out on the lanai next to the bubbling waterfall and having my coffee while watching the fish in the pond is true bliss.
