Hale Wela is at the perfect altitude of 600 ft, warm with a gentle ocean breeze. We are minutes to Kailua-Kona & also close to the best white sand beaches on the island. The master bedroom, living room, & kitchen open onto the large tiled lanai & adjoining pool area. There is a king sized bed in the master bedroom, and a bunk bed in the guest bedroom which has a full sized bed on the bottom & twin size on top. There are 2 full baths.
My husband 'Bear' & I live in Felton, CA which is located in the redwoods outside of Santa Cruz. I am from the Bay Area and he is from New Orleans.
We lived in Kona for 6 years & my husband lived there many years before that. Our older son Josh remained on the island after we moved to Felton. He since married & has 3 children. Obviously a huge chunk of our hearts remain in Kona & we plan to move back to retire & enjoy our wonderful Hawaiian Ohana as soon as we can.
As soon as we saw Hale Wela we knew it was our dream house. The gorgeous tiled lanai, Spanish style house & beautiful pool drew us in. I could just see our grandchildren playing in the pool. Many rooms opened onto the lanai, giving it a classic Hawaiian indoor-outdoor feel. As our grandson predicted, 'this is the day we saw the whale, & you will get this house'. He's wise beyond his years.
