Keauhou Real Estate – Privacy at a Top Ten Beachfront Buy

One of 2010’s top ten beachfront buys for Hawaii!

Asking $1,099,000, is this the lowest priced oceanfront home in the state of Hawaii?

Now’s the time to take a look at Turtle Rock at Kahalu’u. This secluded 2 bedroom home (MLS#217717), with the feel of “old Hawaii,” offers you a respite from the busy outside world. Designed as a simple cottage, the house’s center is an open-plan kitchen-living area that focuses attention on the pool and lanai. Privacy is further ensured for you and your guests because the guest bedroom is detached from the main house. Both bedrooms open onto the lanai.

Turtle Rock is a short walk from Kahalu’u Beach Park, one of the best snorkeling spots on the Big Island. The Hawaiian word kahalu’u means “the place where people go into the water.” The bay is fed by a fresh-water spring, so the water is usually clear, calm, with colorful corals, rock formations, and some 100 species of fish. A giant natural aquarium, the ocean below your lanai is packed with rainbow parrotfish, silver needlefish, brilliant yellow tangs and Moorish idols. At high tide, green sea turtles often swim into the bay to feed or rest on the beach.

In addition, Turtle Rock overlooks an excellent surf break that is a local destination for intermediate or better surfers and boogie boarders. (Yes, this is where you can find me several mornings a week!)

The best thing about Turtle Rock is the privacy afforded by its ocean orientation, combined with it’s convenient location on Ali’i Drive. You don’t hear other houses because Turtle Rock is serenaded by the gentle ocean breezes and the rolling surf. Yet you are only minutes from town—shopping, Kona nightlife, and the fine resort restaurants.

In the past, this has been a very busy vacation rental property. I have personally rented it for four years in a row for Thanksgiving week, and my family loves it there because of the beauty of the setting. With diving, fishing, surfing, canoeing, standup paddling, etc. right in front of the house, there’s something for everyone!
