Kealakekua Bay house description

Imagine yourself entering your upcountry home......a cool and peaceful santuary awaits you after a day of frolicking in the sun and surf with dolphins, whales and turtles. 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 ocean and garden view hottub for a soak as you end your day with a Kona sunset and maybe even a green flash! 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. Enjoy your view of the green, lush Honaunau Valley all the way down to the blue Pacific....as far as the eye can see. Kealakekua Bay, City of Refuge, Manini and Keei Beaches are all a short 7 minute drive from home down picturesque, meandering roads. 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 3,035 square foot home 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. The home is a short drive (7 minutes to be precise!) to Kealakekua Bay, Honaunau Bay and Pu'uhonua O'Honaunau National Historical Park.

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. 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.

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 roof top 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 setting, away from the busy-ness of life, yet only a short drive to grocery, farmers markets, restaurants, lei stands, galleries, shops, fruit stands, beaches and so much more!

Situated 4 miles south of Captain Cook (8 minute drive) and 23 miles (40 minutes) from the Keahole Airport, you are never too far away from what you need but exactly where you will find your peace and solice from the rest of the world.

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

                            Rocky shoreline but ok for entering if tide is right, sandy botton and deep. Great snorkeling to the left and keep your eyes open for Spinner dolphins and whales in the deep. So pretty next to the pali. Restrooms/showers

                            Drive slowly on this very bumpy and potholed road. Go to almost the end where you'll notice a small parking area, park and walk in the rest of the way. Tread lightly....this is a neighborhood

                            Honaunau Bay View on map

                            Wonderful spot for snorkeling, rocky shoreline but nice big slabs of pahoehoe lava. Use the "two steps" to enter and exit the water. This is for safety reasons, to do your part in keeping the human footprint down and keep the corals healthy. This is a fantastic place to see the Spinner dolphins and whales not to mention the colorful array of fish species and corals.

                          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 santuary, 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.
