The enclosed terraced orchid garden on the lanai adds more beauty to the delightful setting. The yard is lush with tropical flowers and fruit trees, including lemons, limes, lychee, papaya, banana, coffee, mango, avocado, pomegranate, tangelo, breadfruit, jackfruit, pomelo, and tangerine.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: I was born and raised in Maryland, right outside Washington DC, and studied environmental science at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR. I came to Hawaii to work on an organic farm for the summer and couldn't bear to leave, and have been here for eight years now. My husband, Allan, grew up here and has a deep connection to the island. He is carpenter, landscaper, fisherman, and general jack-of-all-trades. We live in the caretaker house (with a separate yard and driveway) on the property with our two daughters.

Why Kealakekua, HI, USA:
This is a unique historic property with many updates in a prime location central to all of Kona. It is walking distance to Historic Kainaliu and a short drive to Kealakekua Bay, City of Refuge, Manini Beach, as well as the restaurants and shops of Keauhou and Kailua.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
15 minutes to the beach, walking distance to shops. Charming original vintage touches and many modern updates throughout the house! Centrally located close to restaurants, beaches, snorkeling, Kealakekua Bay, Captain Cook, City of Refuge, Kahalu'u beach, Manini Beach.
