Plantation Style Home in Kalapana
Enjoy East Hawaii at its best from this plantation-style home located in the coastal community of Kalapana. Nestled into a tropical property, this home is a successful, permitted Short Term Vacation Rental – just a short walk to the ocean!
The home was built in true Hawaiian style to take advantage of the trade winds East Hawaii is famous for. Built on pier & post, you walk up the steps onto the large 486 sqft front lanai which has room enough for chairs, tables, BBQ and more. During those quiet, relaxing evenings out on the lanai, you can hear the wonderful sounds of the ocean.
As you enter the home through the double glass doors you come to the living area with its large windows which catch the morning light & great ocean breezes. The open kitchen has granite countertops with bar seating for 4, wood cabinets and a window with a view of the back yard. Next to the kitchen, there is plenty of room for a breakfast table inside or go just outside the back glass doors to the 288 sqft covered back lanai and enjoy your meal there. Down the short hall are the nicely appointed full bathroom and the two bedrooms which each have glass doors out to the lanais.
As a bonus, set above and separate from the main home is a 156 sqft studio. With its separate entrance, this makes a great guest or art room. From here you have a 360-degree view that includes the Pacific Ocean as well as the rest of Kalapana.
Other features of this home include air conditioning, private water system (no catchment here), great mobile phone reception, high ceilings throughout, hot tub, outdoor shower, extra windows for light and breezes and more!
Within walking distance is Kalapana Shores where you will find the newly formed black sand beach along with a colorful bi-weekly farmers market. There is sunny weather most of the year and great trade winds flow through this area almost daily. This small oceanside community has a lot to offer and real estate prices are still very affordable.
