Beautiful Oceanfront Kona Home- Private Beachfront
Additional Location Information
There is plenty of space with private, beautiful and romantic views throughout the property. The “Apple Oasis” as I like to call it, just had a face-lift including the addition of a secluded lawn with two hammocks, a waterfall and a fire-pit, just feet away from the beautiful shoreline. You will also have a pool table/ping pong table on your lanai overlooking the Ocean.
You will dream of the heavenly views after you return home. It is a wonderful property without the noisy neighbors and maids or the rules that come with many rentals.
My wife and I live in the home when it is not rented, so you can be sure it will be clean, well maintained and stocked with every thing you could need.
The house location on the island is a perfect starting point for nearby activities and day trips. The house is positioned at an ideal vantage point, next to the best snorkeling beach on the island, Kahaluu Beach Park. We have a great view of the Park’s popular surf break from our lanai where you can watch the local surfers all day long.
The Keahou Shopping Center is one mile from the house, same direction at the top of hill. It has great restaurants, (Thai, Japanese, Italian, Mexican,
Hawaiian, Subway and a great Coffee shop) six movie theatres, grocery stores, an Emergency Care Center and a pharmacy. A popular, inexpensive, challenging, community 18-hole golf course with a driving range (rental clubs available) and a small boat harbor with fun, daily water excursions (Fair wind cruises (808-322-2788), snorkeling -fishing-boat rentals-kayaks etc.) is another mile away continuing down the hill towards the Sheraton Hotel.
One mile away, the other direction, north, towards Kailua-Town and the airport is Disappearing Magic White Sands Beach, great for body surfing and body watching.
Another three miles from there is downtown Kailua-Kona Harbor where you can eat and shop till you drop. This is also a great place for Hawaiian Shaved Ice and a spiritual walk on the Royal Palace grounds over-looking the Harbor.
If you want to swim with the turtles there is an “easy’ natural entry into the ocean in front of the house, that the old Hawaiian’s called “The Bowl”. The surf has carved an inlet into the rocks with a natural stepping stone exit which allows the current to lift you up and out safely. With a little practice, the neighbors will think you are a “local”. The current is sometimes strong, so it is helpful to watch others get in and out first. Like most things, it’s easy if you know how to do it. Use fins and a snorkel/mask to give you more confidence and control while in the water, but take them off before you attempt to step up and out. Either hold them in your hands or toss them up onto the rocks. I always wear water shoes to walk across the sharp and uneven lava rocks to keep from slipping. They also help in planting your feet safely on the water steps as you exit the water. Bring some A&D; ointment and band-aids just in case. It is the most beautiful, natural, mineralized water in the world. The tide is usually pretty calm with an abundance of turtles and fish. You may also see a dolphin or two if you are lucky. It will be something you and your family will never forget. Remember, always be safe than sorry and never swim alone.
The luxury hotels and beautiful white sand beaches are one hour North. A trip to explore Waipeo Valley, then dinner in Waimea or an all day adventure to the volcano is a must see, if you have time. One of my favorite adventures is located one hour south of the house where you can experience old Hawaiian spiritual grounds at the City of Refuge. Not far from there, you can kayak and swim with dolphins during their early morning feeding. If you want to be splashing on the water, looking for natural sea life and snorkeling on isolated beaches, my friend Chris at Sea Hawaii Rafting will take you on a memorable ride of your vacation.
