If you’ve been attending some of the events during the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival, you know how lush the mountains are and how the cooler climate is a welcoming change. You may be thinking, “I’d really love to live up here, but where would I find a home with luxury amenities?” Enter Makalei Estates, a private community on the slopes of Hualalai in upcountry Kona.
At an elevation of 1,000 to 1,800 feet, Makalei Estates is just close enough to the coast to catch the ocean breeze. All homes sit on three-acre parcels with spectacular views of the Pacific. With only a fifteen minute drive to Kailua-Kona, Makalei Estates is the perfect community for those looking to live in a rural environment while being close to boutique shopping, 18-hole golf courses, and fine dining.
At the moment we have an extraordinary estate at 72-4068 Alahee Pl. This 3 bedroom/ 3.5 bath home redefines luxury with its amazing architectural design and attention to detail. When you step into the great room you’ll first notice the magnificent panoramic ocean views and the 20-foot high ceilings. To your right you’ll see a gourmet kitchen with stunning granite countertops and top-of-the-line appliances.
The master suite feels like you’re at your own resort with its commanding ocean view, magnificent quartz tiled bathroom, and large outdoor shower. The two guest suites each have high ceilings, their own custom bathroom, and individual outdoor showers.
Stroll outside to the covered lanai and you’ll notice a 75-foot salt-water pool with spa. The large BBQ and stunning view makes your outdoor space a great place to entertain guests.
Did I mention the putting green? Practice your short game on your very own chipping/ putting green.
This lovely estate is the perfect home for someone looking for the seclusion and privacy of a rural lifestyle without giving up the amenities usually only found at a resort.
