Direct Beach Access, Amenities, Great View

The property description is comprehensive, so I'll just touch on the major points. The direct beach access makes all the difference. Instead of mounting an expedition, you simply step out when the mood takes you. This makes it easy to enjoy sunrise, sunset, kayaking, swimming, and climbing on the rocks without worries about bathrooms, eating, making sure you have your sunscreen, or people stealing your stuff from the beach. The supplied kayaks save a lot of money and hassle from renting.
The white sand front area is your private turf. The opening to the beach in the front wall is actually a 6-8 foot drop so you follow a short path to the left about 60 feet to safely walk down. This is actually a benefit as it creates a natural barrier that makes the yard more private. There is an external shower and bathroom for quick use when you are wet and sandy.
The beach itself serves a moderately sized upscale housing development, so it is not deserted but neither is it crowded and the people who are there are nice and well behaved.
A couple of notes: the drive down to the house and beach from the main road is REALLY steep. My rental sedan had no problem with it, but you need to be a confident driver. Take it slow, and squeamish passengers should concentrate on the dash board.
Unfortunately the porch did not get as much use as you would expect from the perfect view. The mosquitoes are numerous and vicious when the wind drops. This was less of an issue in the yard, and not an issue at all on the beach. You can still enjoy the sunset from the dining room or
living room. Possibly this could be corrected with burning insect repellent of some kind to clear the porch.
There are other things to see in the area, but the real attraction of this place is you have all of the beach activities at your finger tips without the crowds and noise in Kailua-Kona.
