About the Unit
Welcome to Honu O Kai (Turtle of the Sea). Enjoy stellar ocean views, miles and miles of Pacific waters from this spacious home located right above Kailua-Kona Village at about a 700 feet elevation, which offers comfortable trade wind breezes. The prevailing trade winds from the west over the ocean and the mountain breezes from the east make this home so comfortable that there is no need for air conditioning.
This single family, four bedroom two level home offers wide open spaces and has a nice 8' deep private pool with bench seating, an outdoor shower, spacious lanais, full size washer/dryer, a large kitchen, and an additional kitchenette on the lower level, fully equipped for entertaining. The home backs up to a large vacant property which translates to peace and quiet.
Just two miles away from the ocean, the home is conveniently located close to many amenities which include a plethora of dining options, a movie theater and shopping centers, all within a 5-10 minute drive. Numerous resort amenities are available just to the South. The Keauhou Bay area offers great ocean access, scuba diving, and sailing, catamaran, fishing charters, sea kayaking and outrigger canoeing.
A few miles down the shoreline you will find Kahalu’u Beach State Park, famous for its encounters with the graceful green Hawaiian Sea Turtles.
If you are seeking local markets and historical context, downtown Kailua-Kona is approximately a 10 minute drive for easy access to shopping, businesses, waterfront restaurants and hotels. Watch the people and the cruise ships come and go from the Kailua Pier. Visit the famous Farmer's Market. Enjoy a shave ice or a cup of Kona coffee, have a light snack or a gourmet meal, buy an inexpensive souvenir or a piece of fine art, book an activity, go for a swim or hang out on the many beautiful beaches.
Up the coast is a busy marina with Hawaii's best scuba diving, big-game fishing, kayaking, dolphin and whale watching and other ocean activities. Honu O Kai is conveniently located, a great home base to explore the many wonders of the Big Island including Volcano National Park, Mauna Kea Observatory, coffee and macadamia nut farms, artist communities, and more!
