About the Property
Relax, Rejuvenate, Rediscover. Stunning Unobstructed Ocean Views and Breezes.
Our property is located 34.5 miles south of the Kailua-Kona airport (KOA) , this beautifully maintained Hawaiian’ a style single family home, away from home, boasts 180° of unobstructed pacific ocean views, modern amenities, and a large covered, open and breezy lanai. The home is one story-NO stairs. Easy access. And fantastic one of a kind VIEWS!!
The home is in a beautiful cliffside community, close to the water, close to town and close to Volcano National Park (Kilauea). This is where you come for peace and quiet. To stare at the stars, listen to the waves crash and hear tropical birds and wild animals every day. If you want to hang in Kona - you're only a 45 minute drive a way.
The property is set on ancient lava flows, overlooking the vast pacific ocean, the King's Trail, an ancient volcanic cinder cone, a private pebble beach (1/2 mile away by car-4 minutes to the water), and some of the best snorkeling/diving on the Kona coast (NO Sand). The water is so perfect for diving and snorkeling, that the infamous Aggressor dive boat anchors off our community's coastline daily.
We call our hale (house) Blue Hawaii. It is our way of taking you back to a simpler time. We have made every effort to immerse you in Hawaiian history while keeping amenities modern, comfortable, and functional to create a memorable stay.
Entering this contemporary, single level, 3 bedroom, 2 full bath, private home in Kona Paradise the views instantly mesmerize you. You find yourself drawn to the sky, the water, and the lulling sounds of the ocean lapping the pebble beach below. Falling asleep to these sounds every night may make you want to stay here forever, it did us.
Blue Hawaii comfortably sleeps 2-6 adults, with one Cal-king bed in the master which has an oversized closet with additional storage in end tables and credenza, a safe, and a television with remote. The master bath en-suite is the mirror of the guest bath with hammered copper sink, medicine cabinet, ceiling fan, tile shower with arched shower rod.
The guest bedrooms have queens beds with side tables and lamps. All bedrooms have new pillow top mattresses, Tommy Bahama luxury linens, remote controlled ceiling fans with lights, closets with a large supply of wooden hangers, blankets, luggage racks, hanging organizers and rattan baskets for storage.
The guest bath has a linen closet with extra towels, linens, blankets and a fixed amount of daily supplies: paper towels, toilet paper, kleenex, a hair dryer, 5 gallon water jugs, led ceiling light and clothing steamer. The home is completely hypoallergenic.
The living room has a dark leather sofa, with a custom-built oversized teak upholstered chair, a custom-built teak and leather sling chair with matching ottoman, teak coffee table, two teak end tables with lamps and entryway credenza. The floors are tile throughout and there are area rugs in the living room, guest rooms, and both baths.
This newly remodeled home features open beam ceilings in the great room which includes a new spacious kitchen with dark hardwood cabinets with soft close drawers, granite counter tops, under counter LED dimmable lighting, a breakfast bar with two woven wood sitting stools and a 42" round glass top bamboo dining table with four matching bamboo dining chairs with custom cushions.

Looking through the great room two oversized sliding Low-E glass doors offer access to the large covered lanai, creating an indoor/outdoor living space. All indoor living spaces have ceiling fans and Low-E insulated windows with screens and window coverings.
The lanai is nothing but ocean views and tropical breezes. An electric BBQ, cushioned swivel conversation set with brass relief side table and glass top dining table for 4-6 make this the place to be every day of your stay. The Balinese daybed offers an area to relax, read, listen to music or just gaze at the view. The sunsets from here are amazing. Extra chairs and ottomans make it comfy and give lots of seating options inside and out.
Technology includes 55 inch LCD TV (in living room with Bose sound system, cable TV, and blu ray DVD player), 32 inch LCD smart TV (in master suite with cable TV), speedy internet access, and land line phone with free local & long distance.
There are a plethora of flyers and discount coupons for local island attractions, tours, shopping, awaiting your perusal.

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Our busy lives working in Event Production and Escrow Signings left little time to enjoy our vacations, so as we started to approach retirement age we wanted to find a home we could enjoy and share for years to come. So when the opportunity finally presented itself, we jumped on it. We call our little piece of heaven 'Blue Hawaii'. And when you see it you'll know why.
Why the Owner Chose Opihihale, Captain Cook, HI, USA:
A friend offered up his Kona Vacation Rental to us for Thanksgiving 2013. We arrived at the airport, got our rental car and stopped as suggested at Costco on the way down. After stocking up on a week's worth of supplies like coffee, steaks, wine, and beer, we headed south. When we saw the Kona Paradise sign, made the right hand turn onto Kaohe Road and started down that winding, breathtaking hill, we knew we were in for something beyond special-it was spectacular. After unloading the car, we found ourselves mesmerized by the most amazing 180° coastal views of the Kona coast. This wasn't just a vacation rental on an island in the pacific - this was a stunningly beautiful oasis that we had all to ourselves for a whole week. We could hear the ocean raking over the black pebbles on the beach below us. We watched for whales breaching, and dolphins cruising the coastline looking for fun and frolic. We slept among the stars out on the lanai the entire time and swore that if an opportunity arose we would make this area our home some day. In 2014, we purchased Blue Hawaii. Our dream come true. It brought peace and serenity to our hearts and minds. Took us from our hustle and bustle go-go-go lifestyle on the mainland and brought us back to what was important. Us. Happy and laid back. Loving life. We hope your stay at Blue Hawaii can bring something back into your life that you perhaps have forgotten. Maybe a little relaxation, rejuvenation, and rediscovery.
