This wonderfully maintained home sits oceanfront near a spectacular Kailua-Kona beach and historical landmark. Huge bonus to owning here - this house is protected by a engineered seawall, designed specifically for deflecting waves, making Hoku'ea less susceptible to high waves than other oceanfronts in the area.
This home is conveniently located under a mile from shopping, the post office, dining, and entertainment, and just a short paddle over to Kahalu'u for a sunrise or sunset surf session, or go snorkeling just a mere short stroll from your lanai whenever you wish.

This house offers a beachfront feel without the wear and tear of the on-the-water environment. Do you enjoy stand up paddling/paddling canoes? Maybe you prefer standing and fishing off the pier for small Halalu or Oama? Some say Oama can be known as a Hawaiian French fry - (and close to world's best might I add) when it’s fried crispy and dunked in a scrumptious dipping sauce!
78-7106 Kamehameha III Rd., Keauhou (MLS# 279643)
On your stroll back to prepare your fresh catch, keep your eyes peeled, because growing nearby you can pick Akulikuli. It is a native Hawaiian ground covering plant that grows near the ocean. Many people pass by it not knowing it’s edible and very delicious too. You can eat the leaves as well as the pretty flowers; they are crunchy and salty, which pairs perfectly and decoratively with these small fresh fish fries! Ever heard of the saying: "If it grows together, it usually goes together"? Good example of one of the many things you can enjoy and share with all who visit you at this extraordinary home.
Peacefully entertain and prepare gourmet meals in the chef’s kitchen, filled with lots of natural light through windows all the way to the peak of the roof
