Private Homes, Kona Paradise house description

Our home is a perfect get-away and will guarantee a relaxing visit on the Big Island of Hawaii. We are in the Kona Paradise subdivision, at the bottom of Kaohe Road, just a short walk to Pebble Beach. We have fantastic views of the ocean and coastline from the entire house, including the lanai. Morning coffee on the lani, watching Hualalai and the ocean view, spatular!

Enjoy the cool ocean breezes while eating a fresh plate of papaya and mango and sipping a hot cup of 100% Kona coffee on the quiet lanai. The beautiful hillside will beckon a morning hike.

Our 2-story home is clean and spacious with an open floor plan. It has three bedrooms, three baths, living room, dining room, office, lanai, laundry and kitchen on the main floor and the garage and parking below. The house has been professionally furnished and will remind you of staying at a Four Seasons Resort. The office has wireless high speed internet and privacy.

The spacious master bedroom has its own sliding door onto the lanai, a California king size bed, walk-in closet, ensuite bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers.

The second bedroom has a California king and the third has an Eastern King, both have their own bathrooms with hair dryer, one with an outdoor shower, one with a tub and each with a television.

The bedrooms, living room, dining rooms and bathrooms all are equipped with ceiling fans. The entire house is cooled by delightful ocean breezes rather than air conditioning. There are two sliding doors onto the lanai. The comfortable lanai (16x14) is easily accessed off of the living room and the master suite.

The kitchen has brand new stainless steel appliances and is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, silverware, table linens, cooking utensils, blender, coffee maker, french press, coffee grinder, toaster, griddle, rice cooker, waffle maker and baking pans.
You will find fantastic views and an enjoyable patio dining table and 6 chairs to enjoy quiet mornings or sunset dinners.

We offer our guest the use of wireless high speed internet, our two-person kayak, paddles, life jackets, snorkel gear, beach chairs and umbrellas.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I grew up in Northern California and moved to Hawaii in 1994 when my husband became the Resort Manager at the Four Seasons Hualalai. My husband was born and raised on the Big Island and therefore, the Big Island became our 'home'. We raised our daughter, now 23, in the close knit community of Captain Cook which will always be home to her. When my husband unexpectedly passed away while on a business trip to China in 2011, I decide to move back to Sacramento to be closer to my family and aging parents. I am also following my passion for collegiate athletics and am the Director of Community Relations at Sacramento State, my alma mater. Hale 'Ikena will always be my home away from home and the place that I plan to retire to when the time comes. In the meantime, I would like to share it with you. Aloha! This is Melinda, I am the property manager. I live just above Kona Paradise on a 5 acre property. My husband and I were organic lettuce farmers for the 'Big Island Hotels' for 23 years. Now we are farm consultants and manage a few proplerties in Kona Paradise. We are happy to help Cheryl with her home and you to enjoy your stay here in South Kona. This is a beautiful place and I am happy to share it with you.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Kona Paradise:
My husband and I were one of the first property owners in Kona Paradise having purchased the land in 1981 and finally breaking ground in 2003. Our dream home was completed in 2005 with many of the design elements inspired by the Four Seasons Hualalai - the outdoor showers, slate tile and decor in particular. The comfort of the home and the peacefulness of Kona Paradise is something we particularly enjoyed.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our favorite features of the house include the view of both mountain and ocan as well as the outdoor showers. The aquarium-like snorkeling in the bay is breathtaking and the sound of the whales at night are simply magical.
