About the Property
Landmark Oceanfront Villa With Pool & Spa Overlooking Kehena Beach!!
Perched high on the edge of a lush coconut studded absolute oceanfront sea cliff at the dead end of this quaint coastal beach community's most exclusive cul de sac stands this romantic gated landmark villa that was thoughtfully designed to be enjoyed by a couple who desire a level of privacy, comfort, safety and luxury that is more akin to a high end resort but is value priced and capable of accommodating a group of up to 8 adults if desired.
The the property has exclusive views of the magnificent Kehena Cove including the Kehena Black Sand Beach all the way to the tip of the cove where the villa is situated and assures a high level of privacy and exclusivity that is not shared by neighboring vacation rentals. There are no immediate homes on either side along the coast of the villa which is surrounded by 6 foot solid lava rock walls and accessed by a coded artistic gate that was custom designed by famed Honolulu based French sculptor Frederic Zimmer. The entire oceanfront block is adorned by a series of artistic gates and custom matching light fixtures that automatically illuminate the gorgeously landscaped lava rock walls nightly. The only other oceanfront home on the block is the smaller sister residence which is equally private and luxurious.
and spans nearly 200 feet along a 50 foot high sea cliff that is typically teeming with sea birds. The lucky guests of the villa will not only enjoy the direct views of Kehena Beach and Bay, but also the extraordinary sunrises and moonrises and will experience near constant cooling trade winds due to the primarily northeasterly orientation of the oceanfront villa.
The oceanfront deck, or 'lanai' has been updated and redesigned, nearly doubling its size in 2014 per our former guest's recommendations and is certain to be the most popular living area of the villa. It features a large and new refreshing jetted Endless pool in which one may enjoy the stunning views while relaxing or swimming in the solar heated water. At night time it can be illuminated to enjoy a nighttime swim or just sit and watch the stars! The pool can be accessed from either the open uncovered lanai or the covered pool 'cabana' sides which has a translucent roof and comfortable outdoor furniture facing the pool and beach view. The tiled lanai is furnished with teak furniture including a custom bar, adjustable cushioned chaise loungers, and bar height dining table and chairs. One has the option of dining 'al fresco' or under the covered portion of the lanai which has a translucent roof to provide the added illumination of the stars and moon at night. The oceanfront railing is clear glass. The Endless pool directly abuts the deck on 2 sides so you can just step right in. There is an outdoor lava rock shower with hot water adjacent to the pool deck.
The courtyard to the villa greets you with a pond and lava rock waterfall feature and a stunning variety of guppies and goldfish. An adjacent screened 'lobby' area is well furnished to accommodate your party and is the ideal site to gather in the evening by the soothing sounds of the waterfall and the chorus of coqui frogs that it invites. The grounds are professionally landscaped and maintained. The garden foliage is striking and includes many varieties of bromeliads, orchids and heliconias.
The gym is a recent addition and has a wall of sliding glass doors that overlook the courtyard gardens. It has a wall mounted TV/DVD player with access to over 250 DishTV channels as well as a blender, fridge, and sink for your convenience. Per our former guests recommendations, the gym has been updated to include a hybrid elliptical trainer/recumbent bicycle so that a lower impact cardiovascular workout can be accomplished. Dumb bells and a Gold's Platinum professional gym that is equipped even for bench pressing or squats without the need for a spotter is provided.
The oceanfront yard is terraced with a lava rock walkway above that has a unique imported covered teak swing for two. Below there is a grassy lawn dotted with mature coconut trees and a cozy hammock for two! You will also encounter a new 9 person oceanfront spa. Don't forget to bring your I-Pod so you can plug it into the spa outlet and enjoy your favorite tunes.
If you can not resist the urge to visit Kehena Beach, it is a mere 5 minute walk from this, the closest oceanfront residence. This gorgeous strip of sand is not to be visited by the faint of heart. Although nudity is generally deemed unlawful in Hawaii, the beach has been routinely frequented by naturists since its formation back in 1955 after a small lava flow. Sturdy shoes or Tiva's are recommended to walk down the rocky trail to the beach. It is steep in some places and not deemed suitable for young toddlers, the elderly, or anyone who might have significant physical limitations. It is, however, well worth the effort. The black sand, unlike most of Hawaii's 'black' sand beaches, is granular and pure black. The beach itself is reputed to be among Hawaii's most scenic beaches.
Kehena Bay is perhaps best known for the Spinner Dolphins that frequent the beach year round and occasionally can be seen swimming among local swimmers. It is not unusual to see Spinner Dolphins performing acrobatics with the naked eye directly in front of the house. Whales can occasionally be viewed during the season from about November to April. At times , one can hear the majestic sounds of the mother Humpback Whales communicating with their calfs, particularly throughout the evening and night. Sea turtles can be spotted year round. The reef below is teeming with marine life and on calmer days one can look down and see a wide variety of reef fish.
First time visitors to Kehena Beach are discouraged from entering the ocean until they have talked with our property manager, particularly the young, elderly, and those with physical limitations should avoid. As with anything Mother Nature provides she should be respected for it's power and unpredictability! Swimming with the dolphins should not be attempted unless you are a good swimmer and feel safe being a couple of hundred yards out in the ocean! Undoubtedly, there are frequently opportunities to watch a considerable number of people swimming with the dolphins, but to do so as a malahini (newcomer) is not without risk to the life and safety of the swimmer. The beautiful but rocky shoreline can prove to be unforgiving.
There is a drum circle that regularly occurs Sundays on the beach. You can view it on U-tube. It tends to be reminiscent of the sixties. The atmosphere is laid back and includes a very eclectic crowd. There are no facilities at Kehena Beach , but you are guests of the nearest oceanfront estate to the beach, so you are only minutes away by foot from all the comforts you may desire .
You may wish to access a lunar calendar and make a reservation around the time of the full moon. The experience of watching the moonlight shimmering on Kehena Bay cannot be aptly described with words. On certain months, you may be afforded the opportunity to watch the moon rise over the ocean horizon.
We look forward to Hosting you!
