Property description

Private 3000 square foot home, 3 bedroom and 3 baths with pool, makai of the highway, and behind the gates at Mauna Kea. Resort privileges and amenities (golf and tennis extra). Fantastic views of ocean, surf and coastline. See all 4 of the Kona volcanos and Haleakala across the channel. Sleeps up to eight in 3 bedrooms: master bedroom with king bed and private garden bath with spa tub; second bedroom with 2 queen beds, 3rd bedroom with convertible queen bed. High chair available.

The home was designed by William Bain in 1978. Bain was a cofounder or NBBJ architects, now the world's second largest architectural firm. NBBJ has designed many iconic buildings, including the Gates Foundation headquarters, Pauley Pavilion, and Staples Center, The home was extensively renovated in 2011, including new stainless steel appliances, but retains many original and irreplaceable features, including koa wood cabinets in the kitchen, koa wood sideboard in the dining room, koa wood bar in the living room, koa wood dresser in the master bedroom, and cedar ceilings in the 20 foot height living/dining room(s).

The home is one story and handicapped accessible. There is a single 3 inch step from the driveway to the house, no steps to the patio, and only a few steps to the pool. The master shower is open with only a very small lip.

Two minute drive or short walk to the Mauna Kea hotel and all resort amenities. Your stay includes pool, beach and gym privileges and member parking at both the Mauna Kea beach hotel and the Hapuna Beach Hotel (golf and tennis extra). Get up early for a walk on the beach or workout in the Mauna Kea gym overlooking the ocean. Return home for a quiet breakfast on the lanai overlooking the coast. Spend the day golfing or lounging on the beach and then retire to your private home for a fantastic sunset, drinks from the living room bar, dinner on the patio, and a swim in your private pool. After dinner, retire to the master suite for a quiet evening, enjoy the spacious living/dining area with friends or family, send the kids to the third bedroom to play a video game (or play yourself), or venture out to the resort or nearby attractions. Its another day in paradise.
