Property description

The cozy 1 bedroom apartment (ohana), situated below a family home in a garden setting with two separate entrances. The kitchen, located in a corner of the living room has a full refrigerator, range/oven, and microwave. A table and chairs are on the lanai and there is a fold out dining table for inside dining. The screened doors and windows offer gentle breezes and allow the bird songs to wake you each morning. Kealakekua Bay is a 2 minute walk away and Manini Beach is a five minute walk and a wonderful place to spend an hour or a day in the beautiful small park with a sandy cove and friendly people, or to snorkel among the many tropical fish that abound in this underwater preserve. Sunsets at Manini Point are spectacular, and the benches provide a nice place to sit and enjoy the view. Spinner dolphins leap from the bay most mornings and Humpback Whales are commonly seen in the bay or out breaching out at sea during February through April. They give birth to their calves is the bay and you can hear the slap of their tails and their vocalizations during the night. This area is a quiet village called Napoopoo and there are no stoplights, stores, or crowds. All shopping and dining are located up the hill 4 miles in Kealakekua, Capt. Cook, or the other local villages of Kealakekua or Kainaliu town.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1979

About: This home has been in the family since 1979. The Ohana was built for our Uncle has been used by family and friends ever since. I have lived in the Ohana part time for the last 10 years. I live in rural Northern California on our beef ranch and am a retired Hospice Nurse. I spend my time between the Ohana and my mainland home. I enjoy spending 3-4 months a year in the Ohana alone or with friends. I would like others to share this experience.

Why Kealakekua Bay:
The Ohana is decorated with comfortable personal touches that make it feel like a home. This ohana is so very close to Kealakekua Bay that we spend most days while there snorkeling or swimming. The water is warm as are the local people which make special days and a unique true Hawaiian experience. You will love the old time feel of the Bay and quiet days away from the city. Exploring the small towns at the top of the hill give you a look at old Hawaii.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This Ohana is in a perfect location. The comfortable personal touches inside this little home make it easy to relax. The proximity of the Bay make this Ohana special. There is also a cot that is available for a child or extra visitor. The view from the living room window offers a peek-a-boo look at the distant ocean.
