Property description

This is a beautiful, very private home copied from a Frank Lloyd Wright design and modified to provide convenience and openness. A terra cotta cinderblock garden wall, matching the house walls, provides privacy on the mountain side, forming a large courtyard and bringing out the beauty of our bougainvillea and other tropical flowers and gardens. The other side of the house and gardens are fenced for pets, including large or small dogs. Relax on our covered lanai with a drink and your loved ones and watch the Kona sunsets over the ocean. Next to the covered lanai is a large deck with a large, rectangular pool and separate hot tub.

We live in an eclectic neighborhood, mostly smaller houses neatly landscaped, one unsightly house, and one millionaire house . From our house you can't see any neighbors because of the privacy walls and landscaping, but if you walk out on the pool deck you can see the millionaire's house.

Our pool is 17' by 34' and just under 5 feet deep with handicapped steps at one end leading to the hot tub and bedrooms. It's solar heated, but on cloudy days can be cool. Pool temperatures range from 74 on a cold day to 86 on a really hot, sunny day, especially in August and September. I swim every morning even in winter when it goes down to 72.

Enjoy the fishing boat activities on the sea below. Look up the coast at the beautiful Kealakekua Bay. Watch the saffron finches and tropical Java sparrows at the bird feeders and listen to the sounds of the Hawaiian doves. Enjoy our 3 bedrooms, carpeted, with 2 king size beds and one double bed, each equipped with dressers and closets. Each bedroom has sliding glass doors that open onto pool deck. The master bedroom has 2 closets and a regular door to hallway, while the other two bedrooms have sliding Japanese soji doors. Wood finishing and kitchen counters and cabinets are beautiful, old growth fir from Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Our large main bathroom has a shower big enough to share or to contain a wheelchair, aqua tile floor, and long counter. The large living room has sliding glass doors on both sides to allow the breezes through. The house retains a perfect temperature all day, no fans or air conditioning needed, but on an exceptionally hot day there are ceiling fans in every room. During the cooler evenings we sometimes close the sliding doors on the mountain side. From the bedrooms or the living room you can listen to the garden fountain and watch the birds take baths. There are 55 Macademia nut trees on the 3 acres which is a small, older lava flow. We also have mango trees and citrus. A nut cracker is provided on one of the lanai tables. The large table seats six and we eat dinner out there while watching the sunsets. Our pool is long enough for lap swimming, but wide enough for kids to play in. It is heated with a solar heating system. You can walk out of the house and jump right into the pool. Bathing suits are optional because there is a privacy wall from the neighbors who are far enough away that they couldn't see what you have on anyway.

When you finish your swim, relax in our large, blue hot tub which seats seven, with two jet settings and a little waterfall. You can experiment with the different color lights in the evenings. There is a red cement lanai all the way around the house, providing lots of room for your Scuba and snorkeling gear or pool toys.

Dave and Sally are newly retired teachers. We have taught in the Bay Area in California in a two room school, on Hornby Island in British Columbia, Canada, and here in Kona for the last 14 years. We also ran a group home for troubled teens in Victoria for six years. Dave runs a special program at Kealakehe High School in Kailua-Kona for teen age kids who have trouble with the larger campus, and Sally taught at the Elementary level at a private preparatory school in Kona, both in the classroom and PE and Music. We will be dividing our time between our home in Canada and our home here in Hawaii. We hope you enjoy our place.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: We love to travel, snorkel, and dive. We like having our own boat, but now only have a smaller one in Canada. Our son lives in Victoria, Canada, and was the BC light heavyweight amateur boxing champion and competed on Team Canada in England. He was also the Golden Gloves champion for Western Canada. He has just retired from boxing and is in his 4th year of university as a Fitness Trainer and Athletic Therapist. Our daughter lives in San Francisco and works for Adobe Software company. Dave and I have 35 years of teaching experience and have also run a group home and taken in therapeutic foster children. We are looking forward to what retirement will bring, but will still be working part time. Currently I have become a Therapeutic Horse Riding Instructor and volunteer working with handicapped children and adults on horses. THH KONA.

Why the Owner Chose Kealia:
This is our home for most of the year. It is out in the country and quiet. Also not far from Kailua Kona and near the best snorkeling and Scuba beach. We vacationed here for almost 10 years and then moved over full time 15 years ago. Now that we are retired we plan to be at our place in Canada for 5 months or more. In 1987 , after spending a year on a teacher exchange in Australia, in the tropics, we decided we wanted to move full time to Hawaii, to the Kona Coast, and a nice realtor helped us find this place.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We really enjoy the pool and hot tub, and the nearby beaches. We love the house and copied plans from a friend who had a Frank Lloyd Wright house in Honolulu. Our driveway goes past another house which is right on the road, It's about 250 feet long and paved. We have solar lights to light your way at night. The driveway has a circle at the bottom to make it easy to turn around.
