Hawaii vintage at its prime, this desirably located Alii Drive home embodies the Hawaiian plantation era of construction; Polynesian design with tastefully added Asian influences. The entry to this mini retreat boasts a beautiful lava rock wall with an artistic handwrought sunburst gate.
The entry to this mini retreat
Upon entering the main house, which has gorgeously maintained open beam ceilings, you will be instantly impressed to see that this home is completely updated – with classic Brazilian cherry hardwood floors elongating the space and flowing throughout, blending well with fresh carpeting, skylights for allowing lots of natural lighting, and with walls of newer louvered glass to promote great airflow; new plumbing and electrical is a bonus.
Updated open concept chef’s kitchen
This also includes an updated open concept chef’s kitchen with new granite countertops, perfect for entertaining and enjoying your Hawaii lifestyle. This home has lovely open beam ceilings throughout. Covered and uncovered lanais let in lots of breeze, and in the winter months, the sounds of the surf in the night air will lull you to sleep.
Step outside to enjoy your ideally positioned pool with quartzite patio and decks, surrounded by tropical landscaping. All of which lies between the main house and guest house, allowing separation and privacy.

The guest house/ohana is complete with vintage cottage flair and wonderful open beam ceilings as well, making this a great home for a caretaker or guests.
Upper 1 car garage and attached workshop
The upper 1 car garage and attached workshop are also constructed with the same Asian/Polynesian flare, thus allowing you to escape and find your creative side while remaining steps from home. Another 2 car garage is located at the entry gate.
Conveniently located a short distance from Kahalu’u Beach, known for some of Kona’s best snorkeling and surfing, makes this an ideal vacation home or even permanent residence. It’s also a quick 5 minute drive to shopping, golf course, dining, and resorts.
