About Benjamin Dunn
I am a Realtor licensed in both California and Hawaii with over 35 years experience in real estate sales. My family helps maintain this property with great pride and attention to detail in part because it is sometimes a second home for us. My current sports related interests include beach volleyball, bike riding, and swimming. An interest in the history of Hawaii and Asia has led me to keep a modest library of books on these topics at the house. I am both a Vietnam Veteran and a graduate of the University of California Santa Cruz.
Benjamin Dunn purchased this house in 2001
Why Benjamin Dunn chose Kailua Kona
After visiting the Big Island since 1988 my family and I decided to use a rental property we owned in Santa Cruz, Ca. in an IRC 1031 exchange. Our friends in Hawaii helped us evaluate locations and this home with it's proximity to Keauhou Bay, Magic Sands Beach Park, and Kahalu'u State Beach has proved to be a perfect location for us and guests. Our central location allows trips to Keauhou Bay, Volcano National Park, Hapuna State Park, and Paniolo country.
What makes this house unique
Music and dance presentations at the Keauhou Shopping Center are free and of high quality. Also the shopping center has a multi-plex theater and good restaurants. We can easily walk to Magic Sands Beach and Kahalu'u Beach State Parks. Our two car garage allows for storage of a modest amount of sports gear and we are only 3 miles from the Kona Country Club golf course. Our residential neighborhood has allowed us to get to know Hawaii residents and to become friends.
