About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Our home is on the ocean, protected by a lava wall and tide pools with an incredible 270-degree view looking north to Kailua-Kona and south to Kahalu'u Park on Keauhou Bay. Views of the ocean and gorgeous sunsets can be seen from every room in the house. The porch is a family-favorite for breakfast, lunch, reading, napping, and sunset dining. Excursion boats, deep sea fishing and snorkel boats and spinner dolphins pass directly in front of our home. During the winter months, migrating and breaching humpback whales are seen from the porch.
The upstairs has an open, full kitchen with granite counter tops and bamboo flooring which opens to a dining room and living room. Cooks in the kitchen can view the ocean and mountains while cooking. Upstairs has a master bedroom with queen bed and bath. Two bedrooms - one with king bed and the other with two double beds - are downstairs. The downstairs bedrooms share a large tiled bathroom with a huge shower with double heads. Both bedrooms open out through sliders into the garden and ocean. All three bedrooms have ocean views while lying in bed.
The most-popular picnic and snorkel beach of Kahalu'u Park is 1/2 mile south. Body surfing and surfer activities are found at White or Magic Sands Beach, 1/2 mile north. Off the front lava rocks, one can drop into the water to scuba, snorkel or kayak. Masks and snorkels, towels, boogie boards, fishing equipment, beach chairs, hammocks, portable BBQ, coolers are provided.
We have cable TV upstairs and down, as well as internet.
Our home is on a double lot on the ocean so you'll have a bit more privacy and, if you have kids, they have a grass yard to play around on.
Please contact owner by phone or email before placing on line bookings.

Year Purchased: 1962
About the owner: My father visited the Big Island first in 1928. He started looking for his dream home int 1959 and settled on the humble abode in 1962. I started coming to Hawaii in 1962 and through the years have both worked and vacationed in Hawaii. Management of the home has now evolved to my wife Misako and me. We enjoy the correspondence with guest many of whom have become friends over the years. We invite you to contact us should you wish to learn more about the house.
Why the Owner Chose Kailua-Kona, HI, USA:
This property is ocean front and huge! There is a rock beach space between the house and the water. Ancient Hawaiians made this the point there fishing base which is evident from the many mortars huewen into the rocks. The point provides a safe entry and exit from the water. The view from the porch is 180 degrees of 100% nature. The site is old Hawaii. The house is classic old construction.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The view, sounds and feeling is very relaxing.
