The space
My Kona Paradise is large, bright and elegantly appointed. A modern Hawaiian home, it's 2800 sq.ft may be easily shared by two families or 3 or 4 couples. Yet it retains a sense of seclusion and privacy. In an upscale neighborhood on the slope of Mauna Loa, the wide lanai overlooks the yard, the sparkling pool, palms and landscaped tropical greenery. It is directly above downtown quaint, active Kailua Village, which is situated along a wide bay on the Kona Coast.

From Kona airport (KOA) make an easy drive nine miles south on Hwy 11 into Kailua Village, then eight blocks up the mountainside. The circular driveway has a covered portico. The entry leads to the inviting ambiance of the upper living space and lanai level, appointed with both modern art and traditional Hawaiian decor.

The glass back and side walls slide to open the living room to the tropical views of the lanai. There are large leather couches, a smart television, lounge chairs, and large stone coffee table. The dining area opens to the veranda view. Wood and glass cabinetry, dually accessible from dining area and kitchen, contains enough fine dinner ware to accommodate the largest group. The kitchen is fully equipped. It has a new gas stove and refrigerator, a food prep island, plus appliances and convenient gadgetry to suit need and culinary whim.

"PROVED MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN PHOTOS CAN DETAIL" Fred M. -Washington state

"THE BEDS WERE FANTASTIC" -Scott and Ann T. -New York

The master bedroom is spacious and quiet. It has a king bed, walk-in closet and private bath with a glass block shower. The bedroom has a high ceiling with a fan, air conditioning, smart TV, window seat and warm wood window treatments. Its furniture, lamps and art pieces blend traditional and modern Hawaiiana.

The second bedroom, has a king bed, closet, ceiling fan, air conditioning and Hawaiiana furnishings to continue the thematic decor. There is an adjoining bath (not in-suite), again with a glass block shower.

Upstairs from the dining area is a carpeted cupola space with 360 degree views. Equipped as an office with high speed wireless internet, desk and chair plus lounge chair, lamps and small table, the room is a quiet workspace... easily adapted to a crow's nest hideout to sleep a few young pirates.

The covered lanai wraps around three sides of the house, accessible from each. This elevated veranda has a large gas BBQ, two porch swings, table and chairs.

"...POOL IS DiVINE, DECK IS GLORIOUS" -Mark and Elizabeth O. -Tennessee

Downstairs the third bedroom has a king bed, smart TV, closet, ceiling fan and AC. A sliding glass door opens to the covered porch, the yard and gateway to the pool. Adjacent to the bedroom is a third bath and shower. A hallway accesses a linen closet and laundry room with washer, dryer and utility sink. There is work space and cabinets with cleaning supplies and small tools. The laundry room with a door to the yard, serves as a convenient changing room for pool use. There is a storage room for beach supplies.

"THE DOWNSTAIRS WAS LARGE ENOUGH FOR OUR KIDS TO HAVE THEIR OWN SPACE" Monica R. -Oregon

Also on the lower level, the fourth bedroom is actually a bonus room and the largest room in the house. It is carpeted, looks out to the back yard. It has two double beds, two dressers, AC, multiple ceiling fans and a dehumidifier. The room includes a recreation area with two love seats, a large lounge chair, a 48in. flat screen TV, wet bar, a game table with four chairs and a floor to ceiling book shelf stocked with books and table games. There is enough floor space for additional bedding if needed. (There is a full-size deluxe, self-inflating 9" thick air mattress w/bedding; takes 3 min. to set up.) An interior doorway connects back to the third bedroom. Another sliding door provides separate entry to the side driveway.

The bright floral yard is enclosed by rock and wrought iron fence. It has gated steps to the spacious lower terrace salt water pool area. This verdant oasis is surrounded by palms and flowering trees to create a secluded tropical play area. The pool is large, 18ft.x50ft. There is an outdoor shower, a bin of pool toys, ample pool furniture and a table with shade umbrella.

"WE MET A FAMILY GATHERING WHO RENTED MULTIPLE ROOMS AT A HOTEL. IT COST MUCH MORE THAN WE PAID AT MY KONA PARADISE." F.M. -WA.

My Kona Paradise is comfortable, fun and convenient. It quickly feels like a second home. We want it the house to welcome you with the spirit of Aloha. We are long-term owners. We provide local contacts who provide our pool, landscape, cleaning and handyman services. Furnishings are updated continually. The photos were taken by us (NOT altered by photoshop) and are updated to show the quality condition of the home. When you stay with us, We are pleased to offer FREE personal "CONCIERGE SERVICE" to share our knowledge and love of the Big Island. Knowing the make-up of your group and your activity interests, I will have definite suggestions to fit your itinerary. If there is something I don't know directly, I will know where we can find out! So...car rentals, restaurants, luaus, water sports, charters, golf, zip-lining, historical sites, volcano information, helicopter flights, Mauna Kea observatories, shopping, farmers' markets, unusual artisan shops, books to read, day trips, nearby secluded sandy beaches...ANYTHING, just ask. We have no commercial connection with anyone beyond sharing good experiences with you.

Location

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, United States

The home is located in a beautiful residential community. The backyard and pool area is very large and is secluded from the neighbors due to the carefully manicured landscaping.

There is a beautiful walking trail/road above our home which is used by walkers and bicyclists.
(left out of the driveway, right on Nani Kailua. The next right or left will put you on the road. Going left is a dead end, going right will take you through some ranch land and then high end homes and lots. It is about a mile.)

My husband John and I first fell in love with the Big Island over 30 years ago when we were hired to teach summer school for a few years at Hawaii Preparatory Academy. This time allowed us to get to know the island and the people and helped us form lasting relationships. We just could not stay away. It is a magical place and we have spent many summers here with our family. After years of house trading with families we eventually were able to buy a vacation home. One of our favorite things is to share what we know about the Big Island with others. We are happy to answer questions and make recommendations. The home is spacious and we hope welcoming to families as well as multiple couples traveling together. We have had three other couples share our home with us and there is plenty of space. It allows for those wonderful evenings enjoying each others company and there is privacy when you want it.
