Kealakekua Bay house description

Imagine yourself entering your upcountry home situated on 1 acre of manicured property. A cool and private and peaceful sanctuary awaits you after a day of frolicking in the sun and surf with dolphins, whales and turtles.

This beautiful home offers you 5 unique bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. The Master Room is a large and spacious suite with an extra large private bathroom, Ocean Room and Bamboo Room share a full bath, the Garden Room has its own private bath as does the upstairs Loft Room. Perfectly set up for your next family reunion

Take a refreshing dip in your 30ft swimming pool and crack open a cold drink from the refrigerator of your poolside cabana. Mosey over to the hot tub for a soak as you end your day with a Kona sunset and watch the stars come out at night. Ahhh.......dreams really do come true!

Delight in this very inviting, impeccably kept 3035 sq ft home that feels like a private, cozy lodge perched on the slopes of Mauna Loa, is set amid a lush tropical and private setting on 1 acre in the charming and rural neighborhood of Middle Ke'ei Road just 4 miles south of the town of Captain Cook

This is a relaxed and timeless countryside, untouched by large hotels, strip malls and traffic.....a Hawaii of days of old.....this is your neighborhood to enjoy!!

The house layout has generously sized rooms to enjoy like a great room, dining/sitting room, beautiful chef's kitchen with koa cabinets, tons of counter space and kitchen bar seating, a spacious lanai, 30 foot swimming pool and a spacious pool deck and cabana. There is also a BBQ area where you can cook up your favorite foods outside, while enjoying the pool and hot tub.

Perched above the Honaunau Valley at 1,000 feet above sea level, enjoy sunny days and cool nights sleeping, a beautiful ocean view and sunsets from the lanai, poolside, Master, Ocean Rooms and Kitchen. Your view from the home is a 360 degree green view! Not a rooftop in sight all the way down to the ocean!

This home is situated in a choice location that gives you the luxury of a peaceful, private setting, away from the busyness of life, yet only a short drive to grocery, farmers markets, restaurants, lei stands, galleries, shops, fruit stands, beaches and so much more!

You are only a short drive down quiet meandering roads to world-class snorkeling, diving, kayaking and swimming in some of the Big Island's most beautiful and pristine waters of Kealakekua Bay, Honaunau Bay, Hookena and Ke'ei Beaches.

When staying in our home we also provide all the gear you will need for the day at the beach. Beach chairs and mats, snorkel gear, coolers, water bottles, beach towels. No need to rent this stuff when it is all there for you to use.

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About: We both love to scuba dive and snorkel, and Hawaii has some of the best areas to do just that. Which is why we picked this house. We want other people around the world to enjoy what we have discovered here in Hawaii and enjoy it, and our home, as much as we do.

                      Why Kealakekua Bay:
                      When we were looking for homes on the Big Island, this one stood out from the others we looked at. The location was perfect, not to far away from Kona and the beaches, but still has that country feel and the privacy that we were looking for. We were getting tried of the hotel scene, too many people, too much noise and just not the privacy that we were looking for when we vacation. We wanted more of a home feel where we knew we could relax and recharge. And that is exactly what we found here. The lay out of the home and the size of the rooms just had the 'Wow' factor we were looking for. That's actually what we said as soon as we walked in was, 'WOW', so we knew it was for us. We know that you will feel the same way when you walk thru front entry door. We feel at home here, after a long day exploring all that Hawaii has to offer. We love to scuba dive and snorkel, and we are just minutes away from some of the best diving and snorkel sites. And the when you come home there is plenty of room for everyone to relax and hang out, and the pool and hot tub are just the thing to have to make the end of the day great, while watching the sun set over the ocean, which is always so spectacular to see. Truly Paradise!!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The location of the home is perfect! Only a short drive (7-8 minutes) to wonderful pristine waters to snorkel, swim and kayak and in the same amount of time will find grocery, fruit stands, gas, and restaurants. Personally, we have enjoyed the peaceful quality of the neighborhood and home as a sanctuary, far from the busy-ness of the world yet convenient enough to hop in the car to pick up take-out, a movie or even an afternoon latte.
