    Upscale | Ocean Front | Gated Community | Private Pool | AC Lucky 42

    Waterfront vacation home with private pool and kitchen
    Welcome to Akela Ka Hale Kai, also known as the Lucky 42 at Kona Bay Estates. This upscale, oceanfront home has been completely renovated and includes many custom features designed for your comfort and enjoyment, including all new furniture, beds, appliances, tubs, tile showers, plumbing and lighting fixtures. Swaying palm trees, the smell of exotic flowers and the calming sound of crashing waves greet you upon arrival. Situated in the private gated community of Kona Bay Estates, this authentic Hawaiian-style home was originally designed by the most famous and acclaimed Hawaiian architect, Lucky Bennett, to capture the beauty of Hawaiian sunsets and cool ocean breezes. Slide open the three large pivot door systems where the full front of the house open to face the ocean and blur the line between interior and exterior living. One step out onto the expansive pool lanai and you will never want to leave this magical place!This spacious home has 4 bedrooms with King beds, a bonus area with bunk beds and 3 1/2 baths. Chefs will enjoy the new executive kitchen with Sapelle wood cabinets, Miele appliances and a large island prepping area. The dining room boasts a custom-built Sapelle and Wenge wood table with seating for 8 with extra space on the adjacent island bar for 4. The lower spa bathroom has a walk-in shower complete with body sprays and a comfortable, exotic Hawaiian-style soaking tub. Upstairs there are two luxurious en-suite baths including a large stone soaking tub surrounded by lava stones. Relax in style while enjoying the ocean views from your private oasis. The home has 4 brand new TV's, Wifi through-out, a second fridge/freezer and a large capacity washer/dryer; plus plenty of storage for your toys in the garage. For the added comfort of our guests, the home is now equipped with a central air-conditioning system to enable you to cool down when you are ready to shut the doors and relax before bed. Relax outside and enjoy incredible ocean views and brilliant sunsets from the expansive lanai that is surrounded by lush landscaping and large palm trees. Breaching whales (seasonal), playful dolphins and gentle sea turtles can be viewed from the house. There is also a built-in BBQ station, outdoor shower and a refreshing 50X18 long pool for the enjoyment of the whole family. One of the largest pools in Kona Bay Estates. This prestigious home is conveniently located within walking distance of the Kailua Pier and the quaint village of Kona where you can find countless restaurants and shopping experiences. Kona Brewery is one of our personal favorites and is located nearby, just up the road from the entrance gate. A short walk on the sea wall you will discover an un-crowded, beautiful white sand beach with a shallow swimming lagoon. The Old Airport Park is located within an easy walk where you will find tennis courts, a recognized shore diving location, snorkeling and a beautiful jogging path that meanders thru a botanical garden. We hope you enjoy your stay. This is a 5 night minimum stay required, 10 night min during Ironman & the Holiday Season. This is a non-smoking, no pets property. Hawaii Tax ID: 141-290-8032-01.

    Paradise in every way!
    The property was fantastic! We loved every part of it! The setting is incredible! Even better than the photos. We saw whales right from our lanai four days of our stay. Sunsets are amazing! Fully stocked with everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Can’t wait to come back!

    Family vacation
    All of our family of six enjoyed our time here. The house was perfect. It really felt like our home away from home.

    5/5 Excellent

    beautiful property
    home was spacious and well appointed. beds were comfortable. could have used a coffee table in the seating area for the entire gang to sit around and play games at night (also, lights in main sitting area did not work at all). vistas were incredible. kitchen was fairly well stocked and as such we were able to make many meals 'at home' which was wonderful. all appliances worked well. the washing machine smelled incredibly musty/moldy and could have used a good cleaning. Not enough hangers in the closets for a full house of people but we bought and left them for the next guest.

    5/5 Excellent

    Great Home in the water
    Perfect from start to finish!
