Private Homes house description

Kona Blue Hale is the perfect place to start your vacation in Paradise. Just drop off your bags and walk minutes away to Magic Sands Beach, one of the best all around beaches on Alii Drive. The property has been completely updated from top to bottom with all the amenities and convenience to evoke the spirit of Aloha. Kona Blue Hale is in a perfect location to enjoy all the activities the Big Island offers.
This property was just turned into a Vacation Rental in Aug. 2012. Unit is just over 1000 sq. feet with all floors in Travertine for a cool easy to maintain lifestyle. The kitchen cabinets, counters and refrigerator are brand new and the place was just painted and furnished from top to bottom.
There are 2 bedrooms including 1 King bed and the other bedroom with 1 Queen bed. Both bedrooms have nice Hawaiian style themes including dressers and nightstands. Both bedrooms have full size closets with plenty of room for everything you can bring with you on your vacation. The bathroom is full size with shower and bathtub and plenty of storage for towels. The kitchen has plenty of room to create a magical meal or just hanging out with Family or Friends.

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About: We purchased this home in late 2011 as we fell in Love with The Big Island of Hawaii. After visiting all the Islands several times we decided it was finally time to add the home of our dreams on the Big Island. We just love Hawaii and look forward to spending as much time as possible in Kona. We hope you love it as much as we do!

                  Why Private Homes:
                  This property is a Gem. We looked at over 100 homes via online and in person. Our objective was to find a property that had amazing Ocean Views and looked like a BEACH HOUSE. This is hard to find. Most homes look pretty basic and don't have the Beachy Feel. I hope you know what I mean by this. Out of every property we looked at this was the only one that we made an offer on. Once we finally got it and made the changes to the property we realized that we found something special. Anytime we mention this house and start to describe it to the local people they stop me after about one sentence and say that they know this property and how lucky we are to have it:) Now we are able to share this with our potential guests which is a great feeling.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  There are not too many places in the World where you can sit out in front and watch bikers, runners have 2 Beaches less than 6 blocks in either direction. These Beaches are also amazing....Magic Sands is one of the best boogie boarding beach with it's beautiful waves and local flare and Kahaluu is know for it's reef and snorkel. In addition, the neighbors are amazing and offer some great Hospitality if you get to know them. There is never a dull moment at the Kona Blue Hale property!
