There's even an indoor switch to light up the water for a spectacular view! Ideally located overlooking Kahaluu Beach, you are within feet of the best snorkeling and surfing on the island. (If you do surf or stand up paddleboard, you can paddle straight out and be in the break in less than 5 minutes.) Dolphin sightings are quite common. During winter months, whales can be seen daily as they swim by. Uniquely situated on a 9000 sq ft oceanfront lot, this home is a one-of-a-kind. You will experience complete privacy with expansive views up and down the coast. (We also own the property next door where you are free to pick papayas, bananas, etc. or just sit and watch the sunset.) While there is so much to do on the Big Island, you will have a difficult time pulling yourself away from your home and the incredible views and sounds of the ocean. You will find this special place to be relaxing, rejuvenating and inspiring. Upon arrival you will be provided with tropical flower arrangements, kona coffee, fresh fruit, homemade banana bread, etc. More

About the neighbourhood
The fully equipped home and kitchen has everything you need to make your vacation complete. Morning coffee (Kona of course!) on the lanai is a great way to start your day. After a day of exploring the island, at the beach or simply enjoying the sights and sounds of Kona Moana Hale, a Tiki Hut for afternoon drinks and a large BBQ on the deck complete your day. Since you are west facing, sunsets are not to be missed. Upon retiring, the sound of the waves will lull you to sleep.
Getting around
There is a Trolley that runs up and down Alii Drive as well as visiting several shopping centers. It is an ideal way to get around town for only $2. Starting in 2017, Uber and Lyft are also available.
