4 West Hawaii Real Estate | July 6, 2016 Featured Home The Island Oasis at Keauhou Estates An island oasis in the heart of the exclusive enclave of Keauhou Estates, this comfortable and elegant residence showcases impressive Polynesian architecture designed for quintessential Hawaii living. Situated to take advantage of Kona’s balmy breezes, the 2,636-squarefoot home, dubbed The Island Oasis at Keauhou Estates, features two separate and spacious main suites, each with a high cupola ceiling, private lanai and gorgeous ocean view. At the center of the home, the living room, kitchen, pool area, covered lanai and bar provide the perfect setting for entertaining. Enjoy an evening barbecue while dining on the expansive lanai that overlooks the pool backlit by the twilight of Kona sunsets. Well cared for, this distinguished, two-bedroom, two-bath, resort-style home operates as a successful vacation rental and is available turnkey furnished. One of Kona’s most established gated communities, Keauhou Estates is conveniently located near shopping and dining destinations, beaches, bay and surfing spots, and major convenience centers of Kailua- Kona. On-site security patrol and a security guard at the gate make Keauhou Estates among the most desirable, upscale residential communities in the Keauhou/Kona area. Attention to detail unfolds at every turn. Rich tigerwood flooring takes center stage in the main living area. Native koa wood cabinets are beautiful and durable. Indeed, fine craftsmanship and natural wood finishes are on display throughout, including beams, vaulted ceilings, trim, doors and columns. Flanked by tropical foliage, the dramatic entry leads to a bambootrimmed, shaded front door that opens up to a welcoming foyer. Inside, an amazing honu mosaic embedded in the tile floor sets the stage for a dramatic entrance into the stately residence. Art niches and custom built-ins provide gallery-like display areas for paintings and sculptures. With barstool seating in the main living room, the wet bar is a central gathering place for occupants and guests. The spacious gourmet kitchen is a delight for cooks and caterers, featuring granite countertops, travertine flooring, a walk-in pantry, and a stainless-steel appliance package that includes a disposal, dishwasher, microwave, fridge and range oven. The view out the kitchen window showcases beautifully manicured gardens and tropical palms. Central air conditioning helps keep things cool during warm summer days, but you might not need it, given the excellent ventilation and mauka-makai breezes that flow through the home. A central courtyard and garden provides the potential build out for additional office space or a third bedroom.
