Sunset Villa is a luxury, private ocean-view retreat in Kona's most prestigious gated community of Keauhou Estates. Situated on the most private lot within the development, this home enjoys dramatic ocean views from Keauhou Bay to Kona Bay. The home and setting feature extensive rock wall and landscaping work; designer interior and exterior finishes; bamboo flooring; sliding glass doors/screens on all four sides of the house to catch cooling breezes; artistic lighting; outdoor living room furniture; bar stools, premium mattresses, bedding and towels; plasma high definition TV/home theater and custom made teak cabinetry (including a queen size Murphy bed in the Private sleeping porch/media room); private gardens (including an outdoor shower); Bose stereo sound system and more. A major remodel was completed in June 2014, which includes: new granite counter tops, mirrors, sinks, and lighting in all bathrooms; new shower, tub, tile, and exterior door to outdoor shower in master bathroom; new hardwood flooring throughout; new Persian luxury rugs; new granite counter top, cabinet doors, sink/faucet, refrigerator, and micro-wave in the kitchen; new outdoor landscape lighting; and more.
Features of this home include two very private bedroom suites, at opposite ends of the home, and a private sleeping porch/media room (with a queen size Murphy bed in a custom made teak cabinet) with a half-bath just outside its french doors. You'll enjoy panoramic ocean views throughout the home, with unsurpassed privacy and quiet. There is a large covered lanai with outdoor living room furniture, a barbecue area, outdoor wet bar with small refrigerator, media room with plasma HDTV and home theater system, laundry room with washer and dryer, den off the master bedroom suite with a desk and wireless broadband Internet access, and private enclosed garden/lanai with outdoor shower just off the master bathroom. The guest bedroom suite features a meditation garden, small lanai, and ocean views.
This architecturally designed and professionally decorated home boasts luxury details including high beam wood ceilings; quality new and antique furniture; an extensive art collection; hardwood floors with luxury area rugs throughout; tile floors in the bathrooms and laundry room; fully equipped gourmet kitchen, including high performance appliances; dramatic indoor and outdoor lighting; and well-equipped multimedia options. The high quality of the home's custom built furniture, antiques and original art create an aesthetically pleasing environment rarely found in vacation rentals! The private swimming pool has been resurfaced with a dark passive solar color, with designer glass tile around its edge. A salt-filter system eliminates the need for chlorine and feels smooth and silky to the swimmer.
This home's ideal location at the 500 foot elevation and screens on all fours sides ensures cooling breezes even during Kona's hottest days. In addition to Kona village just five miles to the north, Keauhou Shopping Center is a beautiful open air center just a few minutes drive from this home. This shopping center offers great shopping, dining, entertainment, and a multiplex movie theater. A variety of local beaches are just a few minutes from the house, including the island's most famous snorkeling beach - Kahaluu Beach Park. In addition, the rest of the Big Island, with its world-class resorts, signature golf courses, and dramatic coast lines, are within easy reach from our convenient location. Volcanoes National Park, a two hour drive from Kona, is a fascinating day trip destination.

About Bob Arcand
I am a former CPA and business owner who sold my company to PNC Bank and retired in 1998. Sunset Villa was purchased to provide my own sanctuary and residence. I have lived in the home full time in the past and have decorated, furnished, and equipped the home to create a perfect retreat for myself, family, friends, and guests.
Bob Arcand purchased this villa in 1999
Why Bob Arcand chose Kailua Kona
This property simply offers unsurpassed quality of design/decoration/furnishing and is equipped to provide all needs. Because this was my full time home for a number of years, the home is designed and furnished beyond virtually any vacation rental on the market. Couple this with the safety of a gated, 24/7 guarded community and unique privacy and tranquility for the perfect relaxing vacation. The house is situated on a small hill at the end of a cul-de-sac, so most neighbors are about 20' below the level of the house. The only house on the same level as Sunset Villa is behind my 8' rock wall.
What makes this villa unique
Very unique and private setting. Furnished and equipped beyond virtually any vacation rental in the market.
The second I walked into this house and experienced the view and privacy, I made the decision to purchase.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had an amazing visit at your house! The website doesn't do it justice. The pool was amazing, as was the indoor and outdoor showers. We came for our yearly vacation from SF and it was the perfect getaway. See you again soon.
