Aloha from Kehena Beach Villa!
Perched high on the edge of a lush tropical sea cliff at the dead end of this quaint coastal beach community's most exclusive cul de sac stands this expansive 4 bedroom 4 bath gated modern absolute oceanfront masterpiece whose custom design boasts direct views of exotic Kehena Black sand Beach from every major room in the house.
The estate incorporates a bedroom Main House and 2 detached bedroom 'cottage' suites that each feature their own well equipped kitchenette with sink, microwave, coffee maker, mini fridge as well as a beautifully furnished living area with TV/DVD and dining area with a bar height bistro set for two. Each unit has its own private phone line. Each of the 2 very private 'cottage' suites are located on opposite poles of the estate and can be accessed through a series of doors with secure coded entries. The option to rent one or both of these units for an additional fee is available.
The 'Loft' cottage suite is actually two levels with a Tempurpedic California King bamboo bed and the full bathroom on the upper level. A comfortable sofa that can function as a daybed is located on the lower living level of the Loft. It abuts the heated oceanfront pool which is built into the large oceanfront deck which is encircled with glass railing throughout in order to capitalize on one of the most spectacular vistas you will ever encounter. The pool has a Swimfit pool which allows one to adjust the optional current so that one may swim in place at one's preferred pace. Direct access to the pool is shared with the main central portion of the residence.
The 'Studio' cottage suite has its own private lanai (open air balcony) for lounging and also has a full private bathroom. The lanai has glass railing that affords dramatic views of Kehena Beach through a mature coconut forest. It has a Queen sized elevated 'Captain's Bed.' For further convenience, the sofa can easily expand into a futon to provide 2 separate sleeping areas. One must first enter the large gym through coded French doors in order to proceed to access the next coded door in order to access the final coded door to the Studio.
The main portion of the residence is centrally located . There are 2 oceanfront bedrooms upstairs, each with a Queen sized poster bed with elaborate marble furniture accents. Each of the 2 bedrooms has a flat screen TV/DVD player, stunning designer furniture and generous closet space. The upstairs bathroom has a double headed shower and European style bidet. The powder room is located downstairs. There is an outdoor shower with natural black lava rock walls adjacent to the pool which can be directly accessed from the sunken living room.
The entry level of the main portion of the residence has a dining room with Polynesian theme and seating area for 4, but one can seat up to an additional 4 people in the dining/kitchen area if desired. The kitchen is fully equipped including refrigerator, stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, disposal, double sinks, dishes and utensils. The living room has a large mounted TV with DVD player, a large plush leather theater style sofa with ottomans and also 2 chaise lounges.
Kehena Beach Estate has amenities that simply can not be encountered elsewhere in this vicinity of the island. The total experience is more akin to a resort than it is to a typical vacation rental.
Upon your arrival, you will notice that the oceanfront block is secured with 6 foot lava rock walls adorned with a series of elaborate artistic copper gates and matching light fixtures. All were custom designed by famed Honolulu based French sculptor Frederic Zimmer. The entry pillars of the estate will remain illuminated throughout the entire night for your safety and security. The estate is a fortress surrounded by 6 foot lava rock walls. For your added peace of mind, the property is secured with 'panic buttons' monitored 24 hours a day by Alert Alarm of Hawaii.
The courtyard greets you with an illuminated pond with nocturnal waterfall feature and a stunning variety of guppies and goldfish. An adjacent screened 'Lobby' area is well furnished to accommodate your group and is the ideal site to gather in the evening by the soothing sounds of the waterfall and the chorus of Coqui frogs that it invites. The grounds are professionally landscaped and meticulously maintained. The garden foliage is striking and includes many varieties of bromeliads and orchids.
The gym is a recent addition and has a wall of sliding glass doors that overlook the courtyard gardens. It has a wall mounted TV/DVD player, blender, fridge, sink for your convenience. Dumbbells and a professional workout station that is equipped even for bench pressing or squats without the need for a spotter is provided.
You can swim in place at your own pace in the heated oceanfront pool which has a manual cover. It is solar heated with backup gas heat for your comfort.The oceanfront lanai has recently installed glass railing throughout so you can enjoy the panoramic views of Kehena Beach and Bay. There is ample space for a sizable group to sunbathe (or to dine) poolside on the furnished deck. Or, if you prefer, you may enjoy lounging on the grassy oceanfront lawn at the ocean's cliff front edge.
The oceanfront yard is terraced with a lava rock walkway above that has a unique imported covered teak swing for two. You can also access the basement level office which houses a printer and access to Wifi. Below there is a grassy lawn that is dotted with mature coconut trees and a cozy hammock. You will also encounter a new 9 person oceanfront spa. Don't forget to bring your I-Pod so you can plug it into the spa outlet and enjoy your favorite tunes.
If you can not resist the urge to visit Kehena Beach, it is a mere 5 minute walk from this, the closest oceanfront residence. This gorgeous strip of sand is not to be visited by the faint of heart. Although nudity is generally deemed unlawful in Hawaii, this beach has been routinely frequented by naturists since its formation back in the 1955 lava flow. Sturdy shoes are recommended to walk down the rocky trail to the beach. It is steep in some places and not deemed suitable for young children, the elderly, or anyone who might have significant physical limitations. It is, however, well worth the effort. The black sand, unlike the sand of most of Hawaii's 'black' sand beaches is granular and pure black. The beach itself is reputed to be among Hawaii's most scenic beaches.
The privileged guests of Kehena Beach Estate will enjoy unobstructed direct views of Kehena Beach and Bay and extraordinary sunrises and will capture the cooling trade winds due to the primarily northeasterly orientation of the oceanfront aspect of the home. The cliff front is typically teeming with sea birds.
Kehena Bay is perhaps best known for the spinner dolphins that frequent the beach and can often be seen swimming among well-seasoned local swimmers who brave the often powerful currents and rip tides. It is not unusual to see the Spinner Dolphins performing acrobatics with the naked eye directly in front of the house. Whales can occasionally be viewed during the season from about November to April. At times, one can hear the eerie sounds of the Humpback Whales, particularly throughout the evening and night. Humpback Whale season in Hawaii generally runs from the latter part of November into late April or early May. Sea Turtles often can be spotted year round.
It is hoped by the developer of Kehena Beach Estate that you have been provided with a helpful and accurate portrayal of what precisely you might encounter if you elect to visit here at this splendid and one of a kind estate. We look forward to assisting you in enjoying a most memorable, relaxing, yet adventurous visit to one of the world's most intriguing and scenic land and seascapes and are confident of your return patronage and referral to your friends, family , acquaintances and colleagues.

Kehena Beach Estate
Perfect for Family Reunions, Corporate Retreat, Special Events and Weddings!
It is really a great place to stay at. The kind of place I only see in magazine about where the famous stay!!! The location is fantastic, the decoration is great, everything is available. The beds are very comfy, and although I normally need to be in total darkness to sleep, no problem at all. I just wish I could return soon, having a drink on the terrace... Enjoy
