Golden sunsets into the azure Pacific back light the tropical garden at Hale Mahi Iu Lani Estate in lower Holualoa. The sunlit interior airy spaces of the main home open to a lanai that runs along the makai length of this gracious home built in a style reminiscent of the beloved territorial design of Hawaii homes of another era. The lanai meets the pool and spa with views of Kona spread out below. Vaulted ceilings, windows galore, vertical Tahitian paddle ceiling fans, fine finishes, custom touches make this a must see home. Interior rock wall water feature is a natural conversation piece. Great kitchen fits all the cooks, walk-in pantry, island/breakfast bar opens to a view filled dining room surrounded by tropical foliage and flowers. All opening to the pool and lanai with its outdoor kitchen and al fresco dining. The master suite is truly a suite with walk in closets, a sitting room and an absolutely stunning bath secluded down a private hallway from the Junior suite that sits on the other side of the great room.
Coming home is always a grand entry for you and your guests; driving through the artfully wrought iron gates at the driveway entry along a cobble stone like drive flanked by lava rock walls to the Porte Cochere. Lots of parking for guests in the car court outside the three car garage plus boat parking (or workshop space if you prefer land crafts to boats). Above the garage is the two bedroom, one bath Ohana that includes its own kitchen, living room and deck. This lushly landscaped acre set within a sedate gated community of only six homes virtually guarantees privacy.
Mahi Iu Lani is one of the few gated communities of Holualoa or mauka Kona that allows owners to offer their homes as vacation rentals although these are rare since many of the neighbors are full time residents. Mahi Iu Lani is perfectly situated with easy access to the amenities of Kailua-Kona, Keauhou and the art filled Holualoa Village.
