Property Details

Updated: Sep 13, 2014
House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Imagine yourself entering your upcountry home......a cool and peaceful santuary awaits you after a day of frolicking in the sun and surf with dolphins, whales and turtles. Take a refreshing dip in your 30ft swimming pool and crack open a cold drink from the refrigerator of your poolside cabana. Mosey over to the ocean and garden view hottub for a soak as you end your day with a Kona sunset and maybe even a green flash! Ahhh.......dreams really do come true!

Delight in this very inviting, impeccably kept 3035 sq ft home that feels like a private, cozy lodge perched on the slopes of Mauna Loa. Enjoy your view of the green, lush Honaunau Valley all the way down to the blue Pacific....as far as the eye can see. Kealakekua Bay, City of Refuge, Manini and Keei Beaches are all a short 7 minute drive from home down picturesque, meandering roads. This is a relaxed and timeless countryside, untouched by large hotels, strip malls and traffic.....a Hawaii of days of old.....this is your neighborhood to enjoy!!

The 3,035 square foot home is set amid a lush tropical and private setting on 1 acre in the charming and rural neighborhood of Middle Ke'ei Road just 4 miles south of the town of Captain Cook. The home is a short drive (7 minutes to be precise!) to Kealakekua Bay, Honaunau Bay and Pu'uhonua O'Honaunau National Historical Park.

This beautiful home offers you 5 unique bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. The Master Room is a large and spacious suite with an extra large private bathroom, Ocean Room and Bamboo Room share a full bath, the Garden Room has its own private bath as does the upstairs Loft Room. The house layout has generously sized rooms to enjoy like a great room, dining/sitting room, beautiful chef's kitchen with koa cabinets, tons of counter space and kitchen bar seating, a spacious lanai, 30 foot swimming pool and a spacious pool deck and cabana.

Perched above the Honaunau Valley at 1,000 feet above sea level, enjoy sunny days and cool nights sleeping, a beautiful ocean view and sunsets from the lanai, poolside, Master, Ocean Rooms and Kitchen. Your view from the home is a 360 degree green view! Not a roof top in sight all the way down to the ocean!

This home is situated in a choice location that gives you the luxury of a peaceful setting, away from the busy-ness of life, yet only a short drive to grocery, farmers markets, restaurants, lei stands, galleries, shops, fruit stands, beaches and so much more!

Situated 4 miles south of Captain Cook (8 minute drive) and 23 miles (40 minutes) from the Keahole Airport, you are never too far away from what you need but exactly where you will find your peace and solice from the rest of the world.

You are only a short drive down quiet meandering roads to world-class snorkeling, diving, kayaking and swimming in some of the Big Islands most beautiful and pristine waters of Kealakekua Bay, Honaunau Bay, Hookena and Ke'ei Beaches.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5
We travel often and honestly I have never taken the time to write a review. But this home stood out from anywhere we have stayed. When we walked in the entire family said "wow" at the same time! The home was much larger than we had pictured. It was very open in the main living area/kitchen. Each bedroom was more space than we needed. There was plenty of storage and extra supplies. Every room was spotless and beautifully decorated. There was everything and more in the kitchen that we needed. We ate all our meals on the lanai with perfect views of the sunset over the ocean. The pool and hot tub area were perfect. The grounds were secluded and very tropical. The location worked out very well for the areas we visited. We spent a lot of time looking through rental listings and I am sure we found the best! Overall, this was an amazing home that we were all sad to leave.

Great place, really big, very clean, near the best snorkeling spots

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Diana's house for five nights and it was really a great time there. The house was almost better than described, with all very bright and big rooms. We couldn't really use all the space inside. Everything was clean, and regarding spices, dishes, facilities, cleaning utensils and so on, more than everything was available. The lanai was the best. We sat there every evening, ate some fresh tuna and had some beer while watching the sun set over the ocean. The pool and the hot tub were also great - though we just used those only one time. The house is near two very good snorkeling spots where you can start your day before breakfast - looking at the colorful underwater-world of Hawai'i. You can even see some spinner dolphins. Kailua Kona as well as some really nice and quiet beaches are within 30 min drive. Also good restaurants and a really good food store (where we got the tuna).

Summary: Go there. One of the best places I have ever stayed.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5
This lovely property offered everything we needed: a quiet home at the end of the day; a chance to meet some of the locals; lots of room to spread out and find some privacy; great views; a kitchen that we could really cook in; lots of excellent advice and tips from our gracious hostess Diana. The furniture and beds are comfortable and we went to sleep listening to the songbirds every night. A beautiful place, and we will be back!

We had a blast!

  • 5 of 5
Our whole family loved this place - it was perfect. Kids loved the pool, the view from the back lanai was stunning. Diana was very cool and the place was set up great. We are a family of 5 but you could easily hold another family in this place. Amazing how private it felt and we really loved the location, off the beaten path and within short drives of so many things to do. Loved many restaurants along the main road... we would absolutely run back here again for more fun.

Kealakekua Bay view

  • 5 of 5
My spouse and I rented from Diana in November and enjoyed her home greatly. The house overlooks the ocean from the hillside above. She met us upon arrival and was quite gracious giving us a tour of the home which is very nicely furnished/equipped. Although just the two of us spent our visit there, the home is quite spacious. Local restaurants were excellent as were the farmers' markets. Bike riding to/from Kealakekua Bay and the Pu'uhonua O'Honaunau National Historical Park was a daily fitness test and a worthy ride.

We'll return for sure. This is a nice home.

A Wonderful Hawaiian Getaway

  • 5 of 5
What a spectacular rental! Peaceful, lush, beautiful and just removed enough without being in the middle of nowhere. The house is so spacious and airy, very comfortable and inviting. The pool area is so relaxing, and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. A well stocked kitchen made eating in a breeze, and the grill was great for grilling up fresh local fish. The owner is also great - very personable and available if needed. We would definitely return!

Amenities

From the Owner

The location of the home is perfect! Only a short drive (7-8 minutes) to wonderful pristine waters to snorkel, swim and kayak and in the same amount of time will find grocery, fruit stands, gas, and restaurants. Personally, we have enjoyed the peaceful quality of the neighborhood and home as a santuary, far from the busy-ness of the world yet convenient enough to hop in the car to pick up take-out, a movie or even an afternoon latte.
