Cars often stop in the road to admire the unique, flush cedar and lava tile exterior of this designer home. When they see the inside, most have just one word, “Wow.”
Less than 300 yards from the playground that is Keauhou Bay, this fully wheel chair accessible, 2400 SF contemporary, tropical home with 20' vaulted ceilings has a giant living-dining space, gorgeous kitchen, three bedrooms, three baths, three lanais, media and music corners, a private, solar-heated pool with wheel chair lift, and carefully selected artwork from throughout the islands. Choose from fire, water or earth themed, bed/bath suites. At night, light up the lanai and pool for a magical private experience.
Situated on the 11th fairway of a prime golf course, with high speed WiFi, four flat screen TVs and a solar heated pool, it can be tempting to just stay around this amazing house and watch the golfers through the safety-glass-paned fence that surrounds the pool and lanai, or space out with the view of the volcano, Hualalai. Don't give in to that temptation! There's too much to see and do without ever needing to get in a car!
• Walk 50 yards to see the sun set over the wild cove that is He’eia Bay.
• Walk or wheel the block to Keauhou Bay, to swim, snorkel, kayak, stand up paddle, play beach volleyball, fish (and barbecue your fish), or catch the Fairwinds, Kona’s most popular snorkel/party boat.
• Take a twenty minute walk in one direction to the island’s most popular snorkeling destination (Ka’alu’u), (and when the surf is up, some intermediate surfing).
• Go 20 minutes the other direction to the “end of the world” trail, where burial grounds, scrub brush, lava and crashing waves eclipse any thought of civilization.
• Or stay in civilization and walk 15 minutes up the hill to restaurants, shopping, movies and urgent care if you need it.
• Enjoy our bikes, boogies boards, snorkels, coolers, beach chairs, and even a beach-worthy wheelchair when you’re out and about.
• Or just give those golf clubs a work out.
Then come back to the perfect place to relax, recharge, and start it all again.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We fell in love with Keauhou 12 years ago, when we realized Kanaloa might be a beautiful place for Lew to spend his last years with muscular dystrophy, especially since we could roll a wheelchair right into the bay. A couple of years ago, he got a reprieve on the 'term limit,' and we decided to become a permanent part of the Keauhou Bay neighborhood. We designed a home that would be as helpful to people with disabilities as a nursing home, but would suggest nothing of that, instead combining the high style of a luxury home, with the convenience and comfort of everyday living. We will retire here some day. But for now, we both work at Ripple Effects providing kids and the adults who work with them with technology-enabled tools to privately address behavior issues and the reasons behind them. Meanwhile, we come several times a year. When we're not here, we invite you to share our dream home. Please treat it with great care. Thanks, Lew, Alice and Delphy, Lew's service dog.
Why the Owner Chose Keauhou, Kahaluu-Keauhou, HI, USA:
We wanted a single level house accessible to wheelchair users and also accessible to Keauhou Bay, which we have come to believe is the most extraordinary area on the entire island. When this house came on the market, it met those two criteria. Unfortunately, it was a wreck. We had to completely rebuild it, from the inside out. That gave us the chance to show that complete accessibility and fine design could go hand-in-hand, and both of them could pair with good environmental practices, like designing around natural air flow to cool the house. Through input with a strong group of workers and Hai On, our consulting architect, we were able to come up with a design that exceeded our expectations. It wasn't until we moved in that we also realized most mornings we have a great view of the 8000' Mountain, Hualalai. We are not golfers, but love the green space accorded from this ocean course. The neighbors are great. The house is great. And the great ocean is, well, just great.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
For people who appreciate fine design, but not the price tag usually associated with it, we offer: Elegant simplicity in a designer home that people can actually live in without breaking something. Complete wheelchair accessibility in every room. Three separate suites, so people can choose to be together or separate. Golf course location, mountain view, so close to the Bay that the impulse to swim is easy to give in to, and a kitchen to cook in, or to watch the cook in. All for a moderate price.
