Makana Kai Hale - 3BR Home Ocean View King


Kona Private Home Rental Description

Tax ID: #TA-038-146-2528-01  

Located right on the water, Makana Kai, gift of the sea, has been family-owned for more than 40 years and retains the feeling of visiting a beloved and well-furnished home. The house has been renovated with a new kitchen, appliances, beds, fans, furnishings, and a rebuilt Ipe lanai. The beauty of this house is its spectacular location at the edge where the pacific ocean meets the Kona coast. Guests love the views from the deck: sunrises, ocean tides, dolphin spinning, whales in winter, golden sunsets, the moon over the water and stargazing at night.

The house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and is best suited for two couples or a family with 2-3 children. Two bedrooms are separated with Japanese-style shoji screen doors to provide privacy with the option to open up into one larger room. The house stays cool through the open louvered windows and daily ocean breeze. Some amenities in addition to a full kitchen include a barbecue and washer/dryer. There is beach gear for your use: cooler, boogie boards, beach chairs, mats and umbrella.

A short walk north from the house is Magic Sands - a white sand beach - and Mile 4 Marker Cove. Less than a mile south is Kahaluu known for its calm waters, snorkeling inside the breakwater and surfing/stand-up-paddle-boarding at the point. The nearby Keauhou Shopping Center has a market, bakery and coffee shop, restaurants, a book store, shops and a movie theater and also hosts a Farmer's Market on Saturdays.

In the town of Kailua (4 miles north) are restaurants, shops, and historic sites including the Hulihee Palace of Queen Kapiolani and Kamakahonu Bay, a home for King Kamehameha in his later years.

Most activities along the Kona Coast are within a few miles of the house: swimming, snorkeling, golf, hiking, biking, deep sea fishing and diving and exploring the art galleries of Holualoa. You can also enjoy drives around the island to the beaches and hotels of the
northern Kohala coast, see the spectacular Waipio Valley, explore beautiful waterfalls and rainforests, visit the old Hawaii of Hilo and journey to the Volcano National Park to see the active volcano Kilauea.

Whether you seek adventure sports or quiet time to relax and renew or something in between, vacationing at Makana Kai will be a blessing to you and your family.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
