KAI EA 'BREATH OF THE SEA' Welcome to a place where the vastness of sea and sky seemingly meet in endless horizon. It is ideal for couples and honeymooners wanting total privacy. Get away from it all at KAI EA. Kai meaning sea joined with Ea (a ah) meaning breath. This awesome home is upstaged only by it's extraordinary ocean views.....and the 'breath' of the sea below. Situated on five gated acres for total privacy. A tasteful Asian theme defines this contemporary cliffside home on five private and gated acres. The upscale home celebrates, and was designed to capture, the breathtaking views of the wide open Pacific Ocean, miles of coastline and white water all the way to Maui, magnificent sunsets and moon rises filling the sky and reflected on the glistening sea, backdrop of clouds hanging on the mountain with stars and distant houses lit up at night. The ruins of an ancient Hawaiian village is seen on the coastal plain below. The home has multiple levels, with a handful of steps, to capture the view in every direction. There are many sunny or shady lanais to decompress and meditate and take in this vista. There are no other rentals or occupants on the property for your complete privacy. A recent local magazine (At Home) featured this amazing home and praised: 'A view so high, so spectacular, so sweeping, making it an apt lair for native owls and hawks'. The panoramic view, yet closeness to the sea and nature's displays, make KAI EA the perfect place to forget the hassles of everyday life. The incredeible vistas have a calming and grounding effect. Situated for the perfect climate at 800' with warm sunny breezy days and comfortable nights. The home is perched above unique Pebble Beach (black polished pebbles) and in winter it is a birthing and mating cove for migrating whales. It is common for the call of whales and flapping flukes to break the silence and treat the eye. Crashing waves up and down the coast reverberate when the surf is high. Be sure and bring your binoculars! The newer fully appointed home is large, open and spacious. It is accentuated with high ceilings, superior craftmanship and furnished with many Asian antiques and artwork. Lending to the ambiance are oversized Italian tile and Brazilian cherry wood floors, roomy well equipped gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. There are many ceiling fans, huge soaking tub and a private tiled and enclosed outdoor shower for after the beach. A totally separate bedroom available also (please ask about extra guests) with choice of plush top queen bed or slightly more firm Serta Spinal Logic queen bed. Master has it's own private sitting area and walls of glass. With all this, you are in the peaceful country yet close to a variety of great beaches for excellent snorkeling and kayaking and just the right distance from nightlife in Kailua-Kona. A variety of restaurants and shopping dot the way. An excellent grocery store and small mall is about 20 minutes away with smaller convenience stores closer.
