Recently renovated three bedroom, two bath home plus separate one bedroom guest suite!

Our home is located 10 minutes from Kona international airport (KOA), at approximately 1250 ft. altitude, where the trade winds keep it cool and comfortable. Our main house has a spacious living room and front and back lanais for enjoying the sunset, relaxing, and dining al fresco. Ceiling fans in every room provide a cool and comfortable atmosphere year-round. Newly remodeled kitchen has a gas stove, side-by-side refrigerator with filtered water and ice in the door, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and grinder, blender, juicer, and rice cooker.

Newly remodeled bathrooms: hall bathroom with hand-crafted wood vanity with granite counter top and walk-in shower with iridescent tile; master bath with jetted tub, handcrafted wood vanity with matching blue tile counter top - gorgeous!

Our guest bedrooms welcome you with 100% cotton sateen sheets, duvet or comforter, and fluffy pillows. The master bedroom has a king bed, the second bedroom has a queen bed, and the third bedroom has two twin beds with 100% cotton sheets.

Enjoy your coffee on the back lanai surrounded by tropical birdsong and lush foliage. Smell the Tahitian gardenias and plumeria blooming just inches away. You may see a stalk of bananas ripening on our banana trees, or yellow lilikoi (tart, sweet passion fruit) ready to fall and be enjoyed.

Our guest suite is on the same level as our main home, has a separate entrance, and en suite bath with tub/shower. Perfect for the bride and groom while their family and guests enjoy our main home, or for the 'night owls' in your party. Sliding glass doors open onto the back lanai, where you may enjoy your morning coffee in peace, overlooking our beautiful tropical foliage.

Ceiling fans in the living room, on the back west lanai, and in all bedrooms provide comfortable tropical living year-round. 100% cotton sateen sheets and fluffy towels provided for your comfort. Hand-crafted wood and tile/granite bathroom vanities and personal wooden niche storage units - gorgeous!

                            We love this beach for an evening picnic or potluck to watch the sunset. We've seen green flashes! Bathrooms with toilets and a cold-water shower toward the north end of the park. Picnic tables and a few trees along the length of the park; mostly rocky shore with some small pools to explore, not recommended for swimming

                            Mahai'ula Park View on map

                            Rough, unimproved road across lava fields leads down to a gem of a beach park with bathrooms and picnic tables. Four-wheel drive recommended; we have seen other rental cars carefully navigating the potholes and other rough spots. Pocket of sandy beach in the lava rock shoreline, snorkeling in the bay, and surfing at the point.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: Susan and Tim met and married in Hawaii in 2008. Although they both grew up in California, and both love the ocean, Susan spent 13 years living and working in Switzerland, and speaks fluent German, while Tim has lived and worked in Hawaii for over 40 years. Tim introduced Susan to surfing, and Susan introduced Tim to scuba diving. Hawaii has a mixture of big swells and flat times, so they switch between surfing and diving - they both love being in the ocean!

                          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Kona Ocean View Properties:
                          Susan originally bought this home because it has great sunset views almost year-round, cool breezes from the trade winds, and lots of fruit for her to enjoy from the mature fruit trees. When Susan and Tim met and married, they decided to renovate and turn it into a vacation rental. Susan made the major design decisions: enlarge the kitchen, add the large west back lanai, and add the guest suite; Tim did the rest, including the concrete slab, framing, tile work, bathroom cabinetry, and roof. Tim's passions are surfing and wood working; he made the koa bar and shelf in the living/dining great room, all the bathroom vanities and the personal storage niche in the master bathroom, the upper private storage units in the kitchen and guest suite, the clerestory window between the kitchen and guest bath and all the redwood window sills and wood trim in the house!!! Susan and Tim both love the ocean, and enjoy sunset views and cool trade wind breezes almost every evening. They also enjoy having only short drives to their favorite surfing and scuba diving spots.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          We love to go out in the early morning and pick papayas or pick up ripe lilikoi for our morning smoothies. Sometimes the wild turkeys are walking down the road, and it's great to experience the year unfold as the turkey chicks grow up. Once Susan heard something on the roof, and came out on the front lanai to take a look. As she looked up, a turkey looked over the edge of the roof, startling them both! This home is located in a lovely and quiet residential neighborhood.
