Private Homes house description

This beautifully restored oceanfront home has all the charm of yesteryear with the added conveniences and sustainability of today. Offered as a vacation rental for the first time in 2013, the view and location are spectacular. In 2014, The Guardian newspaper listed it as one of the Top Beach Houses in the World. Completely renovated, this updated home has hardwood floors, granite countertops, koa cabinets, stainless steel appliances, iHome docking stations, Bose outdoor speakers with connections for Android and Apple products (including iPhone 5), iTouch pre-loaded with Hawaiian music, wireless internet, full size washer/dryer, brand new cal king bedroom set, luxurious linens, hdtv plasma in great room and bedroom, gas bbq, Tiki Hut for afternoon drinks, teak lounges, etc etc. All lights are on dimmers so you can create your own environment and mood. There's even an indoor switch to light up the water at night to create your own private manta ray and eel show!

Ideally located overlooking Kahaluu Beach, you are within feet of the best snorkeling on the island and will enjoy watching excellent surf action from your expansive lanai and deck. (If you do surf or stand up paddleboard, you can paddle straight out from the property and be in the break in less than 5 minutes.) During winter months, whales can be seen daily as they swim by.

Uniquely situated on a 9000 sq ft oceanfront lot, this property is a one-of-a-kind. You will experience complete privacy with expansive views up and down the coast. While there is so much to do on the Big Island, you will have a difficult time pulling yourself away from your home and the incredible views and sounds of the ocean. You will find this special place to be relaxing, rejuvenating and inspiring.

Upon arrival you will be provided with tropical flower arrangements, kona coffee, fresh fruit, homemade banana bread, etc. For bookings exceeding 14 days, a 'freshen up' cleaning will be arranged midway through your stay at no additional charge.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: Married nearly 20 years, we share the passion for travel and exploration. We own a business in California and Australia, so Hawaii is a natural fit as a stopping off spot in between.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              We have been blessed to have traveled to many parts of the world and have not found a location as special as this one. Extensive renovation has been done to make this home both luxurious and sustainable. Expansive panoramic views and the gentle sounds of the ocean create a very unique setting unmatched by anything we have seen around the globe.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              You will not find a home as close to the water as this one! The sights and sounds of the ocean are mesmerizing. From the large lanai and deck you can watch surfers, paddle boarders and boogie boarders or jump in the water and experience some of the best snorkeling on the globe. Lighting up the water at night makes for a spectacular view.
