Pacific Edge Kona, a gracious oceanfront island style beach home! From the lanai of this waterfront vintage Hawaiian home see breaching humpback whales (when in season) and spinner dolphins frolic by day, spectacular sunsets at twilight and watch the universe unfold into a star drenched velvet sky by night. And if you’re still awake, catch shooting stars or an orange marmalade moon sinking into the sea. Sip your favorite beverage and relax from the daily grind of snorkeling, fishing and sunning on the beautiful Gold Coast of Kona, Hawaii. Your sweet romantic island cottage comforts you as island trades rustle the palms and gentle surf lulls you to sleep.
French doors open onto the deck above the water’s edge. With the home's vintage tropical island motif in cool shades of greens, kick off your shoes and pad around the smooth parquet floor as you prepare breakfast and enjoy the dining nook awash with gentle light.
Open beam ceilings, a furo (Japanese soaking tub), 2 bathrooms, appliances, washer and dryer, ample parking and a king size bed and queen sofa sleeper complete the package. If there are more than four in your party, there is a studio with private entrance. Please note there is no internal staircase between the upstairs level and the lower suite. The suite comes equipped with its own kitchenette plus bath available to accommodate two with a double bed, small refrigerator, small flat screen TV and oceanfront views! Remember there is no 'air conditioning' but the French doors allow you to make the ocean, part of the living room, providing the ultimate Big Island outdoor living experience, with cool tropical breezes coming in from the ocean. The home has a two car garage.
Near town yet far enough away to give the true flavor of Hawaii. Conveniently located close to downtown Kailua Kona. Explore downtown historic Kailua Kona. The town of Kailua Kona "hides" some very important Hawaii Island historic spots. Both the Hulihee Palace and the Mokuaikaua Church are located on Alii Drive. King Kamehameha I spent his last years living near the current site of the King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel until his passing in 1819. The Ahuena Heiau, located on the grounds of the hotel, is a reconstructed temple rebuilt by Kamehameha himself and is on the register of National Historic Landmarks.
Watch the people and the cruise ships come and go from the Kailua Kona Pier, with access to Hawaii’s best scuba diving, big-game fishing, kayaking, dolphin and whale watching. Visit the famous Farmer's Market. Enjoy a shave ice or a cup of Kona coffee, have a light snack or a gourmet meal, buy an inexpensive souvenir or a piece of fine art, book an activity, go for a swim or hang out at the beach. The pier is the starting and finishing point of the Ironman World Championship (October) and a great place to watch the sunset. Everything you need and want is readily available in the heart of the quaint Kailua Kona town.
