Our stunning Hawaiian Paradise home is located just a few blocks from the waterfront village of Kona, Hawaii in a private gated community of luxury homes. With a nearly constant year around temperature in the 80s, and a cool ocean breeze, this custom Hawaiian home is as tropical as you can get. Overlooking the crashing waves on the lava and sandy beach coast, the home features a designer infinity pool with two waterfalls, a sandy bottom wading pool, huge lanais, and two courtyard ponds with their own waterfalls in a 'Jurassic' garden setting. There is even a private 'island' dining patio next to the waterfall overlooking the dramatic Kona surf. The house comes fully furnished with a designer dream kitchen, open air oceanfront dining room, kitchen bar, living room, entertainment room, an unbelievable Master Suite with panoramic ocean views, a pampered oceanview study, two Tropical Guest Suites, each with their own separate entrance and opening onto the lush courtyard and waterfalls, and a separate Ohana Cottage Suite with its own kitchen, kitchen bar, sitting area and lanai. The master suite comes with its own private whale watching tower! The house sleeps eight, two in each suite plus futons for young children up to 10 years old.
'HALE KONA A'EKAI' is a unique oceanfront private custom home meaning 'the home by the wash of the sea'. It was intricately designed to capture the essence of waterfront Hawaiian living. Thatched ceilings, open walls, louvered teak windows, ten foot teak doors, endless lanais, and tropical landscaping, all help to capture the spirit of the islands. The house is exquisitely detailed with imported teak, bamboo, marble, granite, and quartzite throughout. The home has been featured in several magazines. The grounds are equally impressive with rare tropical flowers and palms, four waterfalls and a stunningly impressive bathing pool with an infinity edge. A stairway bridge takes you across to the island pedestal where you can lavish in a dinner surrounded by water with simultaneous views of the sunset, waterfalls and the crash of the waves! Enchanting, magical and romantic--there is so much more to describe---but you must see it for yourself! Unsurpassed luxury. Come stay with us and experience the mystique and beauty of the Big Island!
