Would You Like to Buy a Second Home in Hawaii?
If you would like to buy a second home in Hawaii, this remodeled home is extremely affordable and situated in a wonderful Kona location with an 180-degree panoramic ocean view. The flowers you see on this lanai grew from one small Allamanda plant — that rich volcanic soil produces garden miracles. This is only one corner of the lanai, it stretches across the entire backside of the house and then some. Further, that view is from south of the Kona Royal Resort to the whitecaps breaking on Kailua Pier and beyond toward Honokohau Harbor.
It is a truly unique situation. This is a free-standing house that falls under condominium class. It is the highly popular Model 3, which IMHO is the best floor plan in this community.
It’s conveniently located about one mile from town and the beaches in The Pines II community. One intersection away from Kona Safeway, Wal-Mart and Poi Dog Deli. The Pines II is a grouping of 90-some homes governed by an HOA. Now, before you think, oh, ick, an HOA is nothing but trouble, let me assure you that is not the case in this community. The HOA maintains the exteriors, so you will never paint again. Further, the roof is also covered under the HOA, along with water, trash, front landscaping, fences, gates and insurance for the exterior.
I’m gonna miss the HOA actually as we just bought another house without garbage pickup. Most people take stuff to the dump. It’s nice to have your trash picked up and your water included. Plus, with solar hot water, we really do not pay anything to wash dishes, use hot or warm water for laundry and I can take all the hot baths I want without affecting our utility rates. Our electric runs about $100 a month. Did I mention how quiet the neighbors are?
We began our Hawaii remodel in Kona last summer, finishing this year. Gutted the kitchen and baths. Replaced cabinets, fixtures, appliances, plumbing, flooring, and I personally put a lot of forethought and consideration into the design, anguishing over the smallest details. From the Kohler medicine cabinets, featuring extra tall shelving and interior mirrors, to the stainless kitchen sink, which is extra deep, 60 / 40 split with a low rise inside and farmhouse style, you won’t find this style duplicated anywhere. Truly custom. No expense sparred.
Everything is at your disposal, whether you buy this as a second home in Hawaii or move in to make this your own personal residence. You’ve got 2 bedrooms and a den, which could be a third bedroom. A small enclosed lanai is off the den, which I use for our cats, and there is a cat door so they can’t escape outside. Not to be confused with the full-length Futura stone covered lanai on the back of the house. Two full baths, both of which were gutted, along with the kitchen. New chair height Toto one flush toilets. Bamboo glass in the shower. A sliding shower head is utilized in the bath so you don’t have to stand to wash your hair.
Comes with a two-car attached garage with pull-down access to plenty of overhead storage. Washer and dryer are located in the garage. Open house on Saturday, September 14th, from 1:00 to 4:00 P.M.
