In the heart of one of my most desirable cities in the Pacific sits a most prominent oceanfront address known as Kona Bay Estates. A gated community displaying an exceptional line up of the most impressive waterfront mansions. Hawaii's Big Island offers very few direct oceanfront neighborhoods like this one. This community has been revered by many as the premier oceanfront gated community in all of Kona. Homes here sitting on the water's edge are encompassed by forever ocean views and sunsets that are simply just unforgettable. Lucky Bennett a well known Hawaii architect has put his touches and knowledge to work here as well. If you have been seeking a property with miles and miles of dramatic coastline lives, then this quite simply is the one. Lots are approx. 14,000 to 20,000 square feet or even more. This seaside Hawaiian community is now demanding single family luxury estate home prices in the $5 million range. With only 1 mile away from Kona Pier you can be rest assured that a simple island lifestyle is just minutes away.
Keiki ponds beach is a short 5 minute way as well. With the official starting point for the world famous Ironman Championships close by, these homes can also make the perfect investment property for vacation rentals. Some already have their Short Term Vacation Rental Licenses in place. This in short form is referred to as an STVR in Hawaii's real estate terms. Many other fantastic factors play a great role in downtown Kona such as all the historical landmarks, parks, and surfing beaches. Kailua-Kona is still a little quaint and vintage tropical island town. However, everything that one needs is very close by, including Home Depot, Lowe's, Target, and many many incredible restaurants. Some properties are so special at Kona Bay Estates that they can never be duplicated. This is due to the setbacks and building requirements in place. Some refer to this as a grandfather clause. Along the seawall to the north is the Old Airport State Park that offers cherishing walks along the beach.
There is almost no traffic at all on this private road at Kona Bay Estates. It kind of feels like you have the entire place to yourself. High quality swimming pools come with several of the homes and listings in Kona Bay Estates. You can expect expansive views of the pacific ocean, dolphins, seasonal whales from Alaska, fishing boats, and mega cruise ships venturing towards shore. If this was not enough, then add to it views of Hualalai mountain and all of Kailua Bay too. Sunsets in this community are every single day of the year 365 days year round. These special and private estate homes are tucked away with lush landscaping and mature Hawaiiana plants complimenting each home. HOA dues are approximately $1,000 per month but obviously subject to change. Imagine putting your swimsuit on and walking straight to the ocean just steps away and full speed ahead. Such a great location, Kona Bay Estates is a tiny gated community right next to a white sandy beach on the Kona Coast of the Big Island. A diamond in the rough.
