This AMAZING tropical estate is truly a Hawaiian Oasis! Looking for a place that has it all? Beauty and Serenity. Gormet Kitchen. Private Pool, Spa and Tennis Court. Full time caretaker. Peacefulness. Close to town, beaches and airport. Experienced owners with great review ~ the Hawaiian Oasis is a treasure waiting for you! Uniquely located near town, and easy to get north or south of Kona to explore the big island bypassing traffic, this location can't be beat. On two private landscaped acres in a quiet neighborhood, this is the ideal setting for your group, family gathering, personal/professional retreat, or celebration. This tropical estate is also offered as a B&B (except during holidays), and was noted as 'the best place to stay in Kona' according to the author of the 'Lonely Planet' Travel Guide. The lush and exotic grounds boast 50 varieties of palm trees, tropical flowers, fruit and fresh herbs to complete the meals prepared in your own gourmet kitchen. The expanses of lawn, outdoor living areas, tiki bar, pool house and outdoor kitchen offer ideal gathering space, whether you're hosting a family reunion or a private gathering! Your privacy and personal space is never compromised, however, with many intimate indoor and outdoor spaces, including private lanais for each bedroom suite. The Hawaian Oasis Estate was designed with the Hawaiian 'Ohana' (family) and indoor-outdoor lifestyle in mind ~ spacious enough for everyone to have private quiet solitude, while facilitating people being together for meals, games, conversation and fun. Decorated with elegant tropical furnishings, antiques and fine art, this light-filled contemporary Hawaiian home offers the best of island living. Massive Ohia wood poles support the two-story home, giving the covered outdoor living areas a sense of Old Hawaii. Enter the home through etched glass front doors to a soaring atrium filled with tropical plants, slate floors, and stained glass windows. Ascend to the main living area, master suite, gourmet kitchen, dining area and outdoor living area. The sunset view from the lanai will take your breath away. Ahh, the end of another day in paradise! Through the atrium downstairs you'll find the Music Room, a quiet lounging area with antique and playable Hawaiian instruments, vintage sheet music and instructional materials for those who have always wanted to learn to play the ukulele! The covered garden-level lanai is just outside, where you can curl up on the comfortable bamboo and rattan loungers with a book from the library, or snuggle up on the antique Balinese daybed with a MaiTai and someone special. The three large downstairs bedroom suites (one in the adjacent building) are uniquely furnished with fine linens, Hawaiian quilts, and down pillows. Private living space in each suite allows personal time when traveling with a group. With the serenity of the gardens just outside and tropical birdsong in the air, it's the perfect excuse for an afternoon nap. If you're feeling more active, how about some laps in the waterfall-fed pool, a rousing game of tennis, or a stroll through our quiet neighborhood? It's all here at the Hawaiian Oasis, 'Your Place in Paradise'! (Note: The suites in this home are also available individually at the 'Hawaiian Oasis B&B'- see the website for details.)

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: This is us, Peter and Darla, enjoying another day in paradise. We have owned the Hawaiian Oasis Estate and Bed and Breakfast since 2005. We first visited Kona in 2002, and the Big Island definitely hooked us,(after several trips to the other islands!) We bought our first oceanfront property on that first trip, a townhouse just south of Kona village. We have been blessed to now offer four homes in Kona, including the Hawaiian Oasis Estate which we purchased in 2005. Over the last few years we have been remodeling the Oasis suite by suite. After several years of serving our guests as Innkeepers, we now have Tom and Maye Johnson as our on-site caretakers and innkeepers. We have 3 grown children...a fine arts painter, a photographer/film maker, and a fashion designer. Our large extended family includes a growing number of pugs!
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Paniolo Country Estates: We fell in love with the property instantly upon entering the estate from the driveway (the Oasis has a way of doing that to people!) This is one of the most serene and peaceful places that we have ever closed our eyes and let the cares of the 'other' world disappear. As the morning sun rises over the Hualalai summit, the air around the Oasis is filled with birdsong, and one can't help but awaken with a smile and sense of awe. After many years of ownership, it is still as magical as the first day we found this gem.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate: The location of the Hawaiian Oasis makes it the perfect place to come home to while visiting the Big Island. It's a great launching spot no matter which way you're headed. We are 5 minutes from all Kona activities, but the serenity of the place feels like you are miles from anywhere. We love the bossy squawking of the wild parrots that have recently been hanging out in a big tree on the property, and the wild turkeys that innocently parade around like they own the place. Our neighbor grows some of the biggest mangoes we've ever seen, and occasionally one of those delectable beauties appears on the fruit platter for our B&B guests. It's pretty easy to forget that there are places to see and things to do once you get settled in here...maybe tommorrow...
