Uniquely modern 3-bedroom home within the privacy and security of a quiet, gated neighborhood. You're just a few minutes' walk from powder-white Magic Sands beach and a few miles' drive to snorkeling at Kahaluu Beach Park, or boating and paddling activities at beautiful Keauhou Bay. Hop on a bicycle (it's included!) and grab fresh fruits and veggies, or a cup of our local Kona coffee, from any of the three nearby farmers' markets.
In October, you'll have a front-row view of the Ironman triathlete contestants as they journey down Ali'i Drive.
Return home to enjoy breathtaking sunsets and cruise ship views from the 2nd floor wraparound lanai. Cool off with a dip in the indoor-outdoor, extra-deep swimming pool amid lush landscaping, including King coconut palm trees and fragrant plumeria and gardenia. Read a good book or revel in the luxury of a catnap nestled in the backyard hammock. Interiors feature vaulted ceilings with 8ft doors throughout, gourmet kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and cherry wood cabinetry.
Take your pick from a variety of board games, children’s toys, Wii system, cable TV, DVDs and books for a quiet evening in.
At dinnertime, grill outdoors or reap the benefits of being right in the heart of Kailua-Kona village, where fresh seafood restaurants abound.

Our home is on an 0.3 acre lot in Kailua-Kona village in a quiet, private gated neighborhood that intersects with Ali'i Drive, which is a 6-mile coastline road dotted with two bays and many swimming, snorkeling & surf beaches. You can walk (1/3rd of a mile) to a few of these, and of course there is beach parking available too. We are about 3 miles from resort hotels, shopping and many restaurants of every category at either end of Ali'i Drive. Sailing, surfing, paddling, snorkeling, parasailing, deep sea fishing, glass bottom boat, hiking and biking, and luaus and hula lessons, many Kona coffee farm/tasting tours, all nearby. Our family loves the morning snorkel-sail on the Fairwinds, which docks in Keauhou Bay. For an awesome lunch with a panoramic view of the Kona coast, try Sam Choys Kai Lani. A casual dinner (kid friendly) with local brews at Kona Brewing Co. can't be beat - everything on the menu is YUMMY. If it's your first trip to Hawaii, a luau is a must (a little cheesy, yes, but fun) - the show at King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel is great family fun. Bigger beaches like Hapuna state park, the Place of Refuge historic park/hike, Captain Cook's monument in Kealakekua Bay, zip lining, helicopter tours, ATV tours and horseback riding are all less than an hour's drive. And, because our little village has a sizable population, we have the convenience of Target, Safeway, Costco, and other big chain stores too :)
