Overlooking historic Kealakekua Bay, Lani Iki (“Little Heaven”) is a spacious 1 plus-bedroom, 1 bath apartment with a view of forever. You can enjoy the spectacular view from all rooms of this bright, airy apartment with its cheery Hawaiian decor. The bedroom has a queen bed, and the large living area has a queen sleeper sofa, comfortable rattan seating, HDTV, stereo, and a tiki bar for setting up your favorite tropical beverage. Enclosed porch is set up to sleep 1 or 2 persons on futons. The kitchenette has a full-size sink and counter, gas stove with oven, large refrigerator, microwave, large electric griddle, coffee maker, coffee grinder, blender, toaster and all the dishes and cooking utensils you will need. Among the many amenities are wireless Internet; satelliteTV, stereo with iPod dock; all bed, bath and beach linens; and off-street parking. On the spacious lanai you can relax on the lounges, enjoy a meal at the dining table, or soak in the hot tub. Laundry facilities are available as well. Ask about beach chairs, boogie boards & snorkel gear.
When you step out onto the large open deck, you will fully appreciate the breathtaking view of the farmlands and lava fields that slope to the ever-changing Pacific. It’s a great place for socializing, sunning, or snoozing on one of the lounges. Enjoy cooking a tasty meal on the gas grill or having a soothing soak in the relaxing spa. Picture yourself with your favorite companion and a glass of wine, watching the crimson sun sink through the evening mist at the close of another perfect day in your Little Heaven.
You can find all the provisions you need--including fresh local produce and fish and gourmet and health food products at our local market, Choice Mart, in the Kealalekua Ranch Shopping Center just 2 minutes away. Also nearby in Captain Cook are several nice restaurants, including Mi's (fine dining) and the Manago Hotel (local flavor at its best).
We are supposed to be retired, but since we moved to our little coffee farm in Captain Cook, South Kona, we are busier than ever. Come visit and see and sample the fruits of our labor--fresh brewed 100% Kona coffee from Keala Lani Farms or fresh-picked fruit--papayas, mangoes, starfruit, figs, pineapples, oranges, limes and much more--depending on the season, of course.
Milt's parents and grandparents were born and raised on the Big Island. We were fortunate to be able to return in 2007 to this beautiful piece of paradise. We think Kealakekua Bay is one of the most beautiful and magical places on earth. When you experience the view from Lani Iki, you will understand why we named it 'Little Heaven.'
The Big Island is 'da best.' There is so much to do here--swimming, snorkeling, and dolphin viewing right here on Kealakekua Bay. Nearby, there are wonderful beaches for swimming, kayaking, surfing or snorkeling and many other beautiful places to explore: valleys, volcanoes, waterfalls and historical sites. Great restaurants and shopping, right here in Captain Cook, and nearby in Kealakekua, Kainaliu and Kailua-Kona. But words can't adequately describe what we have here; you really have to experience the ALOHA for yourself!
