Access the airport and gorgeous beaches right down the hill from home.
Powered by the Sun
Built in 2015, this 1,392 sq.ft. home is sunlit and airy, with an open floor plan and vaulted ceilings that create space. Strategically placed windows maximize natural light while cleverly blocking views of the neighbors. Tile flooring throughout the main living areas feels good underfoot, and granite countertops give the bathrooms a little extra oomph. This home comes with a solar photovoltaic system that is paid in full, offering one of Hawaii’s most coveted perks — near free electricity! Go ahead, and put the hot tub you’ve always wanted on the back lanai. There’s plenty of room for it, too. The lanai itself has a lovely ocean view down to Keahole Point, offering epic sunsets nightly.
Room for Growth
The landscaping of this home offers some desirable established trees like mango, citrus, and plumeria, while still offering room for your own customized plantings. Planter beds on either side of cement walkways artfully surround the home and offer ease and accessibility for the gardener, whether you fancy edible, ornamental, or a mix of both. Beautiful bird of paradise and traditional ti are already planted.
Newly constructed, Keahole Heights subdivision offers sidewalks, street lights, and underground utilities. Tucked several blocks away from Kaiminani Drive, the main thoroughfare, and bordering the Kona Palisades neighborhood, this development is like its own little island with no through traffic, but quick access to the main road and places of interest nearby. One of our favorites is Kua Bay, a breathtaking white sand beach just 10-minute drive north. Kona International Airport is 5 mins away right down the hill. Costco, the Honokohau Harbor, and Kona Town center are a 15-minute drive south. At near 1,000 ft. elevation, you’ll love the cool evenings and mild daytime temperatures that allow most to live comfortably without air conditioning.
