Recently Updated Home in Discovery Harbour

Aerial view of 94-1502 Hekau Street.

94-1502 Hekau Street is situated beside the second hole of the Discovery Harbour golf course. Built in 2004, this 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom house has had only one owner.

Enjoy the quiet of country living in this recently updated home in Discovery Harbour, one of the hidden gems of the Big Island. Located at the southern end of the island, near South Point, Discovery Harbour is about midway between Kailua-Kona and Hilo.

Fronting the property, lovely rock walls create a tiered effect to add interest and depth. The yard, which is nearly a third of an acre, has many interesting plants, including bananas and oranges.

Comfort and Spaciousness Abound

The house boasts a large front lanai and an even larger back lanai. While the main structure measures an impressive 1,698 square feet, the combined covered lanais add another 846 square feet of usable space. Both the interior and the exterior of the home have been recently painted.

The kitchen, featuring new counters and attractive cabinets.

The kitchen gleams with new granite counters, a new sink and fixtures, and a new range hood. The cabinets are well made with dovetailed drawers.

Entering the home, you will be impressed with the nine-foot ceilings and the rich look of the recently installed engineered hardwood bamboo flooring in the main living areas. To your right is the great room, with large windows which bring lots of natural light into the room.

Beside the kitchen is a dining area large enough to accommodate just about any size table you might have.

Your Own Private Retreat

The master bathroom, with the walk-in closet and the master bedroom beyond.

The master bathroom, which boasts attractive ceramic tile flooring, is accessed through the master closet.

The split floor plan of the home positions the master suite away from the rest of the living spaces. This provides a welcome oasis where you can unwind. The master bedroom has engineered bamboo flooring, as does the large walk-in master closet. You can step out onto the rear lanai directly from the master suite through its own sliding door—no need to leave your sanctuary if you want to enjoy your morning coffee on the lanai.

Functional as Well as Beautiful

The mudroom, including a closet for the washer and dryer.

Beside the master suite and the main living area is the mudroom. But this is not just some small mudroom where you can leave your shoes and slippers. This mudroom is large enough to double as an office, a laundry room, or just a place for extra storage. It even includes a closet with hookups for the washer and dryer. And it is all tiled for easy cleanup. Through the mudroom you will find the oversized two-car garage.

At the other end of the house is the guest suite, with two bedrooms and a guest bathroom. Both of these bedrooms have new carpeting and sliding doors providing direct access onto one of the two lanais.

The guest bathroom has a newly installed vanity.

Never a Dull Day

You can take advantage of many outdoor activities nearby. Foremost among these is the Discovery Harbour golf course, which meanders through the neighborhood. The course is owned privately, and memberships are available. Many residents have their own golf carts so that they can get to the links that much faster. Other nearby attractions are South Point and Green Sand Beach, Punalu’u Black Sand Beach, and just a little further, Volcanoes National Park.
