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.
