Centrally located in Kona, we are 15 minutes from Kealakekua Bay to the south for kayaking and snorkeling, and 10 minutes to the north to the shops and restaurants and beaches in Keauhou. Close to everything yet the setting is rural. Wild turkeys wander by...you are surrounded by farms. Walk to historic Kainaliu and enjoy boutiques, restaurants and galleries. Visit Oshima's general store, catch a show at the historic Aloha Theater, and grab dinner at Annie's, voted best burger in all of Hawaii in 2014! The lanai is a wonderful place to relax, overlooking the beautifully landscaped yard and an ocean sunset view. The enclosed terraced orchid garden on the lanai adds more beauty to the delightful setting. The yard is lush with tropical flowers and fruit trees, including lemons, limes, lychee, papaya, banana, fig, coffee, mango, avocado, pomegranate,tangelo, bread fruit, jack fruit, pomelo, cherimoya, pineapple and lilikoi(passion fruit).
