Looking for the perfect retreat ? Looking for something a bit out of the ordinary, but with every comfort and convenience ? This is it ! Situated on one of the most glorious panoramic view sites in all of the the Hawaiian islands, our beautiful, custom, South Seas Island Plantation home overlooks Kona Coffee orchards, with an endless view of the blue Pacific beyond. Swim in the pool, look at the stars at night (no lights of the city here), watch the wild turkeys, and listen to the birds as you truly 'get away from it all' in the heart of the famous Kona coffee-growing region on the Big Island of Hawaii. No children under 18, please.
Serenity, Peace, and Quiet: Experience total peace and quiet as the sun sets and you sip a mai tai on the lanai, overlooking the beautiful Pacific.
Luxury and Conveniences: The large, fully equipped kitchen is truly a gourmet's delight. All countertops are granite, including the 53 in. by 89 in. island with its separate prep sink and disposal. The appliances include a Jenn-Air gas cooktop/electic oven range, an Amana side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, and a wood-paneled, top-of-the-line GE dishwasher. The 1,200 sq.ft. lanai is tiled and equipped for casual Hawaiian style entertaining.
Lushly landscaped with indigenous tropical trees and plantings, the classically elegant pool and adjoining lanai offers breathtaking views of the bays and ocean 1,000 ft. below, while expansive grassy areas provide ample room for both entertaining and relaxing. The 40 ft. by 14 ft. pool is solar heated for year round comfort.
Serenity, Peace, and Quiet: The property is gated and located on a private, paved road with almost no traffic. The result is a peaceful and quiet setting rarely encountered. In fact, the property is known as Aloha Moku Hale Malu, which means Aloha Island House of Peace in the Hawaiian language. Most of the time the loudest sounds come from the abundant songbirds.
After searching the Kona area for more than a year, we bought this 5.2-acre parcel as undeveloped land in 2000. The property is located about a half-mile from the shoreline at an elevation of 1,000 feet (no need for air conditioning at this level), and has incredible ocean and mountain views. Access is very easy on a private, paved road. The property is 11 miles from Kailua-Kona, the largest town on the Kona side of the Big Island. The Plantation Home was built in 2005.
The property is peaceful and quiet, an escape from the busy world. The Kealakekua Bay shoreline is about 15 minutes away, where swimming, kayaking, and snorkeling are exceptional in this marine-life preserve. The nearest supermarket is only two miles away, and there are several excellent restaurants nearby. South Point, the southern-most point in the U.S. (yes, it's further south than Key West!) is about an hour's drive, and is near the quaint, picturesque little village of Naalehu. Hawaiian Volcanoes National Park, home of the famous Kilauea volcano which has been erupting since 1983, is about 90 miles away.
What a great place!
This location is perfect for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of people and shops. Yet you are only a 2 minute drive to a grocer.
The house is airy and clean and the kitchen really is top notch.
Only issues we had in the Kitchen was the Microwave didn't work, but not such a big deal as I never microwave anyways.
The Bedrooms were roomy, the master has a temperpedic matress which is very comfortable to rest your bones on. The master bath with its outdoor garden shower was a real highlight and such a neat feeling. The second guestroom, was clean and roomy, but the bed itself is of a temporary nature and would probably be comfortable for a kid or 2 but not so much for an adult couple. The bathroom off this bedroom is roomy and the shower was very good as well.
Sitting on the lenai overlooking "our" plantation, the pool and the ocean was a great way to relax from a day snorkling or at the volcano national park. the pool is solar heated and was always a comfortble temperature and was a great place to cool down from the sun.
There is wireless internet throughout the house area, so you can take your laptop and situate it anywhere you like, even by the pool!
I would definitly recommend this place to anyone looking for a private, quiet location that you can escape to from the touristy things on the island. The owners provide loads of details and help and knowledge and are readily available and responsive.
Do eat a Mi's restaurant (italian), it is owned and run by nice couple and they make everything from scratch. The seafood Alfredo was awesome. There is also a good pizza joint close by, Peppi ronis?
Also, the samples of coffee from "Our" plantation are a nice touch and absolutly delicious!
This place is fabulous. I love this home!!! We visited 3 islands, and stayed at 4 places, and this home was by far our favorite. It set the bar very high! The kitchen is gorgeous and has everything you need. I don't tend to cook that often, but this gorgeous home inspired me! I would put music on the wonderful sound system, and cook up meals for my family. We would then dine on the large table on the back patio and look out over Kealakekua Bay. My daughter enjoyed setting the table with the beautiful Polynesian style plates. It was wonderful.
We all loved the entertainment center. We watched a few movies on the large screen. They truly have surround sound.
Everyone loved the outdoor shower off the master bedroom. We would follow up the shower with a Jacuzzi.
The home is very close to the Captain Cook Monument. It has the best snorkeling, and we kayaked by many dolphins. It was also an easy drive to the Volcano.
My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.
My husband was a bit unsure if he wanted to have the 'farm adventure' that I thought would be fun, but he had such a good time he didn't want to leave! The house is lovely (remember the scene in the movie "South Pacific" of the French plantation owner's place? Well, this is it!) and the quiet in the country was an incredible change from our usual life in the city. And, best of all, we were minutes away from snorkeling and kayaking, and had grocery shopping and a terrific restaurant (yes, gourmet!) only five minutes away. We're ready to go back!
Located on the pali (cliff) above beautiful and famous Kealakekua Bay, this home has the romance and beauty of the South Seas Island plantation in the movie ''South Pacific''. Snorkel, swim, kayak, or scuba in the pristine waters of Kealakekua Bay, visit the Place of Refuge, Painted Church, Captain Cook Monument--all just ten minutes away! Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is 90 miles away. Kailua-Kona is 10 miles away. Beaches are as close as ten minutes and famous Hapuna Beach is about an hour away. Everything you dream of doing in Hawaii is only a short drive away!
Golf: There are three championship golf courses within a 20-minute drive. Ten more, some of which are rated among the finest in the world, are located within an hour's drive.
