About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 1.75 Bathrooms, Other (See Description), Sleeps 6

This is a beautiful, very private home copied from a Frank Lloyd Wright design and modified to provide convenience and openness. A terra cotta cinderblock garden wall, matching the house walls, provides privacy on the mountain side, forming a large courtyard and bringing out the beauty of our bougainvillea and other tropical flowers and gardens. The other side of the house and gardens are fenced for pets, including large or small dogs. Relax on our covered lanai with a drink and your loved ones and watch the Kona sunsets over the ocean.

Enjoy the fishing boat activities on the sea below. Look up the coast at the beautiful Kealakekua Bay. Watch the saffron finches and tropical Java sparrows at the bird feeders and listen to the sounds of the Hawaiian doves. Enjoy our 3 bedrooms, carpeted, with 2 king size beds and one double bed, each equipped with dressers and closets. Each bedroom has sliding glass doors that open onto pool deck.


Additional Details: The large living room has sliding glass doors on both sides to allow the breezes through. The house retains a perfect temperature all day, no fans or air conditioning needed, but on an exceptionally hot day there are ceiling fans in every room. During the cooler evenings we sometimes close the sliding doors on the mountain side. From the bedrooms or the living room you can listen to the garden fountain and watch the birds take baths. There are 55 Macademia nut trees on the 3 acres which is a small, older lava flow. We also have mango trees and citrus. A nut cracker is provided on one of the lanai tables.

More Information: The large table seats six and we eat dinner out there in the sunsets. Our pool is long enough for lap swimming, but wide enough for kids to play in. It is heated with a solar heating system. You can walk out of the house and jump right into the pool. Bathing suits are optional because there is a privacy wall from the neighbors who are far enough away that they couldn't see what you have on anyway.

When you finish your swim, relax in our large, blue hot tub which seats seven, with two jet settings and a little waterfall. You can experiment with the different color lights in the evenings. There is a red cement lanai all the way around the house, providing lots of room for your Scuba and snorkeling gear or pool toys.

Dave and Sally are newly retired teachers. We have taught in the Bay Area in California in a two room school, on Hornby Island in British Columbia, Canada, and here in Kona for the last 14 years. We also ran a group home for troubled teens in Victoria for six years. Dave runs a special program at Kealakehe High School in Kailua-Kona for teen age kids who have trouble with the larger campus, and Sally taught at the Elementary level at a private preparatory school in Kona, both in the classroom and PE and Music. We will be dividing our time between our home in Canada and our home here in Hawaii. We hope you enjoy our place.

Car: Necessary

We are south of Honaunau, off the main highway, with a 180 degree view of the ocean and up the coastline to Kealakekua Bay and Kailua Kona. It is very quiet and private, in the country near cattle ranches and Honaunau Bay, which is the best dive and snorkel site in Hawaii, and also near the National Historical Park. We are 15 minutes from Captain Cook, where there is a shopping center, and 35 minutes from Keauhou and Kailua Kona. Our place is an oasis on a small lava flow, but landscaped so you don't see lava from the lanais. We are one and a half hours to Volcanoes National Park. There are plenty of nearby activities: snorkeling, swimming, Hookena Beach Park, scuba, kayaking, hang gliding, antiquing, coffee farms, madademia nut farms. We have 55 macademia nut trees, 4 mango trees, citrus trees. Eat your fill. Watch the birds at the feeder and the boats on the ocean. Enjoy a drink on the lanai and watch the Kona sunsets.

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, parasailing, miniature golf, boating, wildlife viewing, basketball court
