Description

Keaukaha, where sweet rains nourish tropical foliage, where historic fish ponds and miles of accessible oceanfront dominate the landscape and where the sounds of ukuleles and spontaneous hula are as common as the flowers that reflect the vibrant rainbows.

Privately set, the home is best enjoyed from one of two screened lanai areas where breezes and birds are lovely bonuses to your tropical stay. Central to the home is a two-story soaring pitched ceiling with arched doorways and curved banisters forming a grand staircase framing this gracious space that was lovingly trimmed with with thirty foot boards of salt-water treated T&G redwood, Also on this level, a large kitchen is handy to an over-sized dining hall. Two generously sized bedrooms and a bath are tucked under the stair case on the far end of the great room. Six additional bedrooms on the upper level offer flexible accommodations for single travelers or for families requiring multi generational lodging. With an additional kitchen, bedroom and bath, the lower level is currently used as the owners quarters. Situated on almost 3/4 acre, the grounds include a koi pond and numerous tropical plantings. So, if you are looking for a unique opportunity to own a piece of history or expand the hospitality use, this home is certainly a beautiful once in a lifetime opportunity. B& B license conveys.
