Situated in Keauhou, the southern end of Kailua-Kona, on a cul-de-sac between the historic Bays of Keauhou and Heeia, this wonderfully maintained home with a large pool is affectionately known as Hale Makana, the House of Gifts and Gratitude.
The open-plan feels light and fresh, and looks out on treetops and the ocean horizon. The main floor living area features vaulted beamed ceilings and tile floors throughout. Two spacious bedroom suites on the main level, have plenty of louvered windows for good air-flow, and a large covered lanai offers added space for dining and relaxing with palms, birds, breezes, and the sound of the surf beyond. The private ground floor guest space has 1B/1B plus a family room, with its own keyed entry, a fenced grassy side yard, and pool access. There is an enclosed 2-car garage, with large storage closet, as well as 2 off-street parking places!
The large back yard with swaying palms, beautiful rock walls and an artful shower, has a fabulous lighted, salt water POOL that was resurfaced in 2012, has an energy-saving variable speed pump, and both covered and open pool decks. The home has been under Warranty for termites since 1990, and in 2013, the roof was replaced and 22-fully owned PV Solar Panels with Net Metering added to provide very low electric bills.
As one of a limited number of houses in a General Plan “RESORT NODE,” it is eligible for a new Short Term Vacation Rental (STVR) permit at any time. Check County website for further info.
