Description

Secluded Kona Home

When guests walk in we see wow on their faces. They look up at the redwood beams and stroll through the Great Room with a gourmet kitchen. Enjoy all our toys: boogie boards, snorkel gear, coolers, beach chairs, folding tables, and a new stand up paddle board.

The house is elegant, but not too fancy, it's comfortable.The view is to die for! Situated at the end of a long private drive, you have complete privacy. You can't see any neighbors or the street, but you can see miles and miles of sumptuous blue ocean.

There are many different spaces for relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet. A large group can spread out and not see much of each other or gather in the great room for a banquet or a polka!

Natural Air Conditioning: We are at a perfect 1600 ft (500m) elevation, with expansive ocean and coastline views. Folks who live 300 ft below us are in the lava desert where they need air conditioning many nights; homes 300 ft above us are in the cloud forest where you don't get direct sunlight some days. Here, the cool nights are a wonderful contrast to the warm sunny days. The temperature is just chilly enough most nights to want a light blanket, but warms into the 70’s by about 9am. Mosquitoes are never a problem. Eat dinner on the front lanai with a commanding view of the ocean and the sunset 365 days a year.

The Grounds: Our house is situated well off the street at the end of a long driveway in a very private 1.5 acre lot filled with banana, papaya, macadamia nut, coffee and avocado trees. You are welcome to share in the bounty when the fruit (or the vegetables in our organic garden) are in season. Unlike many farm-like settings in Hawaii, we keep no roosters on the property. There is a gas grill on the back lanai for your use. Also in the back of the house, surrounded by a trellis and lush greenery for privacy, is our out-door shower with hot water! This is a wonderful first stop when you return home from the beach.

Central Location: We are just 8 minutes to Kona town with its restaurants and nightlife, and 5 minutes from Costco, directly above some of the best coastline on the island: Honokohau Harbor and National Park, and the Pine Trees surf break. The airport is 12 minutes the other direction, and beyond it is gorgeous Kua Bay, recently voted one of the Top 10 beaches in the USA. Sporting the best boogie boarding, body surfing, and frolicking on the Island, Kua is just 15 minutes away.

Don't spend your vacation stuck in traffic! Getting back our house from the beach is 20 minutes faster than getting back to Kona town because our location gives us traffic-free access to Kua and all the kick’n Kohala beaches (Kua, Kukio, Beach 69, Hapuna and Mauna Kea) as well as Waimea, which is just 35 minutes from home. The Waipio Valley overlook is 75 minutes. Hilo is just over an hour via the recently completed Saddle Road Hwy. Captain Cook and points south (Green Sand Beach, Southpoint, and Volcano) can be accessed, avoiding the Kona traffic, via the quaint artist town of Holualoa, and the picturesque Mamalahola Highway.

Past guests say, ''the perfect house for a family reunion' 'the cool at night was just right' 'close to everything.' The house is elegant, but not too fancy...it's comfortable.The view is to die for! Situated at the end of a long private drive, you have complete privacy. You can't see any neighbors or the street, but you can see miles and miles of sumptuous blue ocean.

There are many different spaces for relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet. A large group can spread out and not see much of each other or gather in the great room for a banquet or a polka!

Bedrooms:
Master Suite: king
BR Suite #2: queen, twin bunk beds, twin in the loft
BR Suite #3: king, queen in the loft
Studio (main space): Cal king, twin
Studio (alcove): queen
Extra Beds: In addition to those listed above, we have a full size crib, a pac'n play, and 5 queen Aerobeds. (These are very comfortable, bed height with headboard, and can be set up in any room).

Bedroom Descriptions:
The Master Suite is nearly 500 sq ft and boasts panoramic ocean views, stained glass windows, cathedral ceilings, and a jetted tub surrounded by screened windows, creating the feeling of taking a bath in the forest canopy.

Bedroom Suites #2 and #3 are each the size of an ordinary master bedroom with en suite full bath with tub, 18 ft ceilings and a loft. The mauka (mountain side) suite (#2) has French doors opening onto the garden and is outfitted with twin bunk beds, a queen bed, and a twin in the loft. It is a mirror image of the makai (ocean side) suite except the latter has a king (and a queen in the loft) and its own private balcony with ocean views.

Downstairs is a 1000 sq foot studio apartment outfitted with a queen bed and a full size crib in the alcove and a California king and a twin in the main space.

Even the studio has ocean views from its picture window and two large lanais. With its own kitchen, entrance and a door directly into the main house, the studio is a perfect space for the in-laws or a second family that is part of your group.

Food Preparation: The primary kitchen is well stocked, has space for 4-5 people to work together, and is integrated into the Great Room. It has three sinks, over 8 square meters of granite counter space, cutting boards, dishwasher and other stainless steel appliances, a Vitamix blender, and everything else a foodie needs to grill, bake, or wok delicious meals. (There is also a kitchen with a full size fridge in the studio.) In the back of the house is a lanai with a gas grill. This lanai is also our favorite place to breakfast since it catches the morning rays.

Jurassic Park: On a hot afternoon, a great way to cool down is to drive two miles straight up our street (Kaloko Drive) into the Cloud Forest. There you will find some of the best hiking trails on the island, including one which was used for scenes in the movie Jurassic Park. The House Manual includes detailed instructions on how to find our favorite hikes, most of which you will not find in any guidebook!

Equipment: Beach and bath towels, all linens, hair dryer, shampoo/conditioner, boogie boards, a new standup paddle board, beach chairs, and coolers are available for use free of charge. Surfers, paddle surfers, bikers (road or mountain) inquire with us about where to surf or bike. We can also arrange a surfing lesson for beginners or experts (with a top professional), or just point you to where the waves are breaking.

Adventure: There is no place on earth like the Big Island of Hawaii, and we chose this house because it is the perfect base for exploring it. You are welcome to borrow from our library of guide books, and we are happy to share our recommendations for the best beaches and hikes, the best places to snorkel with dolphins in the wild, where to eat and shop in Kona, and other little known secrets. From here you can day trip to other parts of the Island...to the wild coast near Hawi, the rugged jungle and spectacular waterfalls of the Hamakua coast and Waipio Valley, and, of course, the unparalleled Volcanoes National Park.

Reviews

Great fun in Andrei's Kona Home

Our group had a wonderful stay in this secluded Kona home. We cooked in and ate out while taking Andrei's thoughtful advice about all things Kona. The house is spacious and well equipped. When we cooked in we ate out on the deck overlooking the Hawaii landscape. When we traveled out for fun around the island we were always looking forward to getting back to Andei's. You will have a great time when you travel to this "Secluded Kona Home!"”
