Kealakekua Home is a Treat for Mango Lovers

Pasture with huge mango trees

It’s mango season again. Go to any farmer’s market and there is table after table of mangoes of every shape and size; huge green ones, small pointy yellow ones, some with every color of the rainbow. I love them all. I’ve even discovered a “somewhat” tidy way to eat the common mango that litters the roads where I walk my dog here in Captain Cook. You pick them up and massage them firmly until they are all soft and squishy, then tear a small hole with your teeth and suck the pulp out. Sexy fruit. Love them.

Just down the road overlooking Kealakekua Bay, a new home has just come on the market, (MLS# 237370) priced at $839,000. This sleek open and modern home sits in the middle of two plus acres of pasture land that is dotted with huge mango trees. The house was cleverly positioned so that you can walk out onto the huge lanai and pluck you own mango right from the tree. No ladder, pole, or neighbor kid needed.

Pocket doors opening up onto the lanai of this home for mango lovers

The sellers are motivated. They put it on the market just 22 days ago and have already dropped the price $60,000. The house is stylish with an open floor plan featuring giant wood pocket doors that disappear into the walls, merging the inside and outside worlds. The home has all the usual high end features: stainless steel appliances, granite counters, and travertine floors—but for me, the mangoes are the thing.

Quick, give me a call before mango season is over.

Erik, I have to agree with you about mangos, yum… but this is your neighborhood isn’t it? It really has a magical ‘Olde Hawaii Charm’. The prime coffee farm area in Kona. When I was last there I noticed it holds a special beauty & charm! Most people miss seeing it and it is a real special location for sure! Water sports at Kealakekua Bay and ocean and mountain views forever. This looks like a great home and we know it’s location is superb! I can’t wait to go with you on a standup board in Kealakekua bay soon! You are so lucky to live there! I hear there’s a great B&B there too!
