Private Homes house description

Wow! VERY reasonably priced and in a GREAT location! THE CALENDAR IS UP TO DATE CHECK FOR AVAILABILITY THERE!

Bright and welcoming. Mountain Breezes and Ocean Views! This place is designed for people who want to hear the birds sing and feel the soft trade winds breathe on their sun-kissed skin. For those who want to smell the sweetness of the plumeria's and delight in the exotic palms almost an arms reach from your lanai.

From serene sunsets to exciting live volcanic eruptions, the Big Island has it all and Kona Seaviews is ideally situated for all of your fun Kona adventures. Just 300 feet in elevation up from the best snorkel beach in Kona (Kahaluu) where sea turtles are often seen sunning themselves on the shore and 20 minutes to the most pristine golf course you can imagine, where the wild Peacocks and Nene birds are free to roam.

Kona Seaviews is the best part of a newer Hawaiian home (built in 2003) situated in one of Kona's most authentic Hawaiian neighborhoods. Your ohana has it's own entrance and the only thing you share is the laundry room, with Dianne and I and only when we are able to leave the mainland and enjoy our piece of paradise.

Pick from the lime tree or a plumeria, and enjoy the GREAT weather; beautiful flowers; singing birds and all the peaceful views of the Pacific from the lanai.

This is a home you will want to return to year after year. Come and enjoy the lush, rich, peacefullness of Kona Seaviews. You will be glad you did.

Our vacation ohana offers three bedrooms, two baths, a fully equipped kitchen with dining area, an indoor living room with TV, wireless internet service, and laundry facilities. Relax and enjoy the peaceful ocean views while you have your breakfast or coffee on the huge lanai in the morning or with a glass of wine in the evening absorbing the beautiful Kona sunsets. Ceiling fans in each room allow for open windows and for you to awaken to the sound of singing birds.

Bring your swim suit and flip flops and your good to go. We have installed an outdoor shower to help you wash off the sand from your trips to the beach.

                      Our newer home, built in 2003, is located at a pleasant elevation yet close to Kailua Kona Bay. A 3.2 mile drive will take you to bay side restaurants and shops. Some of the best snorkel, sand, and surf beaches are just down the mountain to Alii Drive. The Kona coast offers beautiful views, coral snorkeling, dolphins, and whales. Explore coffee and macadamia nut farms. Our affordable prices give you the option to pay for a hotel or bed and breakfast when you make the trip east to see the volcano, hot ponds, and beauty of the Hamakua coast. You will want to explore the Island but it is called the Big Island for a good reason. Base out of our home and spend a night when it's low tide on the other side of the Island. The tide pools of Kapoho and the Hot Ponds are better at low tide. Tina manages things for us on the Island and will make sure everything is ready for you.

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: We are Clyde and Dianne Sebastian, originally from Minnesota but met while we were both teaching school in Australia. We have four adult children and three granddaughters. We have been Texans since 1984. We discovered the Big Island when we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in 1999. We fell in love with Hawaii and eventually purchased our home in 2007. At this time we still spend most of our time on the mainland and thus our fully furnished home is available to you for vacation rental. Dianne has a rewarding career working with students who have dyslexia and Clyde has recently returned to coaching high school wrestling. This keeps us on the mainland for now.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      We purchased this home because the lanai across the front of the home gave us a true Hawaiian feeling. Being built in 2003 it is clean and fresh. You enter our home on the second level and as you enter you will already see the ocean through the patio doors out to the lanai. The ceramic tile floors eliminate any worn out carpet. The master has a king bed with a private full bath. The second bedroom also has a king bed which makes for private sleeping for two couples. The third bedroom has a single bed and a desk which provides a place for your laptop. The queen sofa is a hide-abed if needed. You will find you spend most of your time out on the lanai where we have three tables and nine chairs. Our pricing allows you to save money for a longer stay or to do the Manta night dive. You will be pleased with the climate, fresh air, and comfort of our home.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Affordability with a great location. Our pricing for a single couple is a great value and our location is perfect for exploring all the Big Island has to offer. We have additional beds for more guests for families and small groups and our pricing for the additional guests is reasonable. Our home gives you a good perspective of what it would be like to actually live in Hawaii. We have a diverse neighborhood from snow birds to local Hawaiians. You may hear the hula classes down the street and drive by our neighbors who have two pet pigs. Watch for children when schools out and keep them safe. This is a neighbor hood where you hear kids play just like it use to be on the mainland. There is one neighbor who has an occasional outburst but if you’re out enjoying the Island you will likely never hear him. It becomes quite here after sunset as you will experience when you come and visit the authentic Hawaii experience here on Sea View Circle. Try it, and you will not be disappointed!
