Its very private and the bedrooms are separated, one on the north side, and the other on the south side. Each one has its own air condition.

We have lots of beach toys for toddlers to adults.
The two bedrooms are separated by the kitchen making it very private. Both have their own separate remodeled full bathrooms. The dining and living room have no dividing wall so it has an open feeling.There are ceiling fans throughout the entire house, and two AC's in each bedroom.
Most of your time will be spent on our huge lanai. Its so pleasant you'll want to eat and sleep there mostly all of the day, and night. Portions for the majority is covered, and area open for enjoying the sun rays in private.
The birds are always around, hanging out in our grassy yard. We have banana trees, palms trees, hawaiian noni, pikaki flowers, hibiscus, limes, heliconia, bird of paradise and more.
The property is approx. 10,000 sq. ft. and it sits at the very top of the lot, so it has a direct OCEAN breeze.
The blue ocean view is awesome, palm trees, makes you have that island paradise feeling. The morning sunrise with some Kona Coffee makes it a special way to wake up. In the evening, having a mai tai and watching the sunset is most memorable. Its all about relaxing and hanging loose., Hawaiian Style.
If you're into sports or just exercise, its so convenient just to get some running or walking shoes and head out right in front. Across the street one house away is a public right away to the ocean. You can often see the turtles hanging out on the lava rocks. Also, Dolphins and sometimes Whales can be seen just playing here.
Only 8 homes away is walking distance to Kahalu'u beach. Its everyones favorite beach to snorkle. The reef is protected in this half mile wide bay. It became a park in in 1953. Every colorful fish is there as well as Turtles. Reef teach, a non profit group, often sets up at the park pavilion to encourage responsible snorkeling, to protect our living coral. There are two lifeguard towers, numerous pavilions, restrooms, and open BBQ. If you want to try surfing, there is a surf school right across the beach. If you already know how to surf, no problem, we own a surf shop in Kailua Kona in town, and we have surfboards. We've been in business since 1978, so, we also can recommend whatever you desire from massages, hair salons, chiropractors, minister for weddings, catering, and so on.

We have a library of books of Hawaii and health. So, if you want to feel like you're relaxed in a comfortable home you'll love this one!
The location is in Keauhou Kona 4 miles south of Kailua Kona. The historical is rich dating back to the 1800's of Kamehameha I. One quarter mile south are notable Heiau's-and fish ponds. At the beach is a dollhouse St. Peters Church, which sits atop the sacred site of the pagan Kuemanu Heiau. This is where the ancients prayed for waves for surfing.
Just south of Kahalu'u Beach is the Kona Lagoon, 4,000 foot semicircle of boulders known as the Menehune Breakwater. Created by fishpond builders that predated the Polynesian voyagers, this man-made feature has been greatly altered by the pounding of waves.
Within a mile is the Keauhou Shopping Center, which has an open farmers market every Saturday morning. Here you can get local Kona coffee, homemade jams, fresh produce and flowers. It has a bank, gas station, grocery market, pharmacy, post office, lots of restaurants, theater,and 'Sam Choy's'. Occasionally, there is live musical entertainment, usually free, or two cans of food donated to the food bank.
