Private Homes, Kahakai Estates house description

This Kona house and yard gives room to roam. The house is 2072 sq. ft with 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths. There is a king bed in the master suite across the house from the other 2 bedrooms, a queen in one bedroom and 2 twins that can function as a king in the third. It's ideal for either a family or 2 or 3 couples to rent together. When this neighborhood was built in 2002 this was the model home so has some up-grades. It does have A/C but it would be rare that it will be needed. Throw the windows open and use ceiling fans which are in every room. The house has beautiful dark hardwood floors in the living/dining rooms, tile in the kitchen/sitting rooms/baths and carpet in the 3 bedrooms. The yard is a half acre with a waterfall spilling into a blue-tiled swimming pool. There are lush, tropical plants in abundance, even pineapple plants and banana trees. At the top of the yard is a gazebo with ocean views which looks over the rooftops to the ocean; perfect for entertaining! There is a high top table, 6 bar chairs and wrap-around benches to seat a group. Kids will love this yard and the geckos that live here. There is also a large grassy park within the neighborhood just for residents.

The house is in a gated community called Kahakai Estates. There is a walking path to get to Alii Drive which runs along the coast and one can be there in 10 minutes walking from the house. Driving into the village of Old Kailua-Kona is just a zip down the hill where you will find all kinds of eating establishments and shopping. Also right along Alii Drive are easily accessible beaches with great snorkeling. The Iron Man Race takes off from this town as well. Of course, there is much to do elsewhere on the island but these are the highlights of what is close by.

                          About: We are a retired couple from the Central Coast of California who want to spend time in both locations. When we are not on the island we would like to share our home with someone looking for a quality get-away in paradise.

                          Why Private Homes, Kahakai Estates:
                          When we walked in the front door, we loved the house and layout......then we saw the back yard and waterfall into the pool. It felt like being in a private resort and we were smitten!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The pool, waterfall and yard. Who else has a hillside filled with jungle plants and a gazebo for entertaining at the top? And did I mention the waterfall? The melodious sound is music to our ears.
