Kealakekua Bay house description

Leisurely rest in this romantic, privately gated custom home. With open beam ceilings throughout, feel at home with two large, comfortable bedrooms, each with a private bathroom, the evening provides silky Hawaiian 'mauka' breezes. The next day awaken to sounds of songbirds and beautiful views of the pali. Rent a kayak at Kahauloa Bay, a 1 minute walk down the road and you are on the ocean~!
My newly decorated 1150 square foot home is charming and bright! With a short walk down to Manini Beach, the south side of Kealakekua Bay. The gourmet chefs kitchen with coconut wood bar, large pantry and dishwasher, overlooks lush tropical flower gardens. Everything you could possible need to enjoy with a new delightfully artistic dining area.
The living area has all new furniture, with a new trundle bed (which sleeps two more persons, this home sleeps 6 total) or more, please inquire for larger groups.
For your convenience WIFI is available throughout this home.

Enjoy the salty breezes as you barbecue on this large 450 square feet Hawaiian style covered lanai. Listen to the ocean as you relax and unwind after a day of adventure. Relish the beautiful tropical gardens, fruit trees and lotus ponds, which surround this lovely vacation home. Sweet aromas will remind you to stop and smell the essence of the island's aloha spirit.

Kealakekua bay is located on the Kona Coast, 12 miles South of Kailua-Kona. An historical location, well known for the death of Captain James Cook, the European who made first contact with Native Hawaiians in 1778. Kealakekua Bay (which means 'Pathway to the Gods') is also one of Hawaii's most spectacular coral reefs. This is a Marine Life Conservation District where fish are plentiful and swarm over the well developed reef formations that slope steeply from the shore into the nearby deep water. Spinner dolphins and green sea turtles are commonly seen resting in the bay.

Come and enjoy a swim or a snorkel in some of the world's most pristine water! Bring your underwater camera too,

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1990

                  About the owner: I am an artist. I own and operate the Blue Ginger Gallery located in Kainaliu, Kona. I came to live on the Big Island 28 years ago. I have lived at this Manini Beach location for 23 years. I love the ocean. I enjoy snorkeling and paddle boarding in the Bay when ever possible!~

                  Why the Owner Chose Kealakekua Bay:
                  This old Hawaiian village is very special. There is lots of history yet to be told here! The relaxed lifestyle and neighborly feeling never changes. Mostly, I love the pristine ocean here, it is like nowhere else on earth, combined with tropical smells and the quiet in this quaint neighborhood of Napo`opo`o.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I really enjoy jumping into the clean magical water at Manini Beach. There is cold, underground, mountain water which enters the ocean at Manini Beach. This creates brackish water which is supposed to be healing. I always appreciate swimming with the beautiful reef fish and the sea turtles, the visibility is beyond compare. Also, the beach access road is wonderful for biking or jogging. Walk to Manini Point for a sunset and watch whales breach in the winter months. Dolphins play all year round. Swimming with the Spinner dolphins is a breathtaking experience for anyone to enjoy, young and old alike!
