At the heart of Kapoho Bay, some of the most utterly idyllic land and seascapes to be found on the Big Island of Hawaii are encompassed within one unique, nearly-17 acre oceanfront parcel. The property includes private, naturally-heated saltwater ponds and large lagoons filled with sea life. Surrounded by historic volcanic rock walls and swaying coconut palms, it is the quintessential picture of Old Hawaii. Enter through 6 high volcanic rock pillars of the security gate to be greeted by a postcard vision of blue water, big skies, and exotic greenery. With total seclusion and the calm waters of a marine sanctuary to explore, the sprawling grounds of this authentic island retreat feel like a personal resort. Both the main home and guesthouse have pod-style post and pier construction, capturing spectacular views over the propertys lagoons out to the open sea and morning sunrise. Comprised of over 3,415 sqft of living space and approx. 2,079 sqft of lanais, the structures are solidly built and highly functional for their direct oceanfront location, offering a total of 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms 2 of which are open air yet completely private as well as 2 half baths. There are 2 full kitchens with granite counters and local hardwood finishes, a bonus kitchenette in one of the guesthouse rooms, plus an outdoor kitchenette in a covered picnic area. Enjoy a weight room, sauna, basketball court, easy kayak launch sites, and snorkeling in your backyard. Store aquatic gear in your bay front pavilion. Equipped with solar photovoltaic systems, the homes are also connected to public utilities and county water, 2 sophisticated septic systems, and reverse osmosis water filters. Near the eastern tip of Hawaii Island with miles of tidepools, rare warm springs, abundant sea turtles, and world-renowned diving, the real estate is ideal for even the most discerning buyers portfolio. If desired, zoning may allow the next owner to create several additional parcels and bay-front homes.
