The Hale Makamaka
Beautiful Kailua-Kona sunsets and sunrises can be viewed from the expansive wrap around lanai. This home offers a great base for exploring the diversity of Hawaii’s Big Island. Makamaka is 1.5 miles or 4-6 minutes from downtown Kona and Kailua Bay, 4.5 or 11 minutes from White Sands Beach (aka Magic Sands), 6.4 or 12 minutes from Kahalu’u Beach Park, one of Kona’s premier snorkeling spots and a 15-20 minute drive from Honua’ula Forest Reserve which features hiking and biking trails.
Upstairs features a master bedroom with a king bed and private bath, two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with a full bed, separate full bathroom, a beautifully updated open tiled kitchen, open dining and living area. The dining and living space has full sliding glass windows that open onto the wrap around wooden lania for overlooking historic Kailua and Oneo Bays. The living and dining area feature beautiful hardwood floors. The lanai features patio furniture with dining tables for morning and evening meals, coffee or wine time while watching the sunrise from the eastern Mauka (Inland, Mountain) side or the sunset from the western Makai (Ocean) side of the lanai
The downstairs Ohan’a has a master bedroom with a queen bed and private bath, a den with a work station and armoire, a living room along with a private entry. A sliding glass door opens to a ground floor lanai with a peek a boo view of Kailua Bay with patio dining furniture for two. This ground floor Ohan’a is optimal for family members who may have difficulty with stairs.
A full garage features a convenient garage door opener, washer, dryer and locked storage for guest beach gear, bicycle’s and other sports gear. A workbench and work area are ideal for bicycle cleaning and maintenance. An outside shower just outside the rear garage door provides a place to wash off and cool off after a long day at the beach, run, walk or bicycle ride.
What our guests are saying.
Amazing experince in an amazing home!
Wish I could give 10 stars. What can I say? I had a great experience during my short stay in this beautiful home. The best part was the morning coffee and sunrise views over the mountains on the lanai and the evening sunset views along the Kona Coast overlooking the the town of Kona. This was a daily event and one that I looked forward to during my stay. I literally planned around it. The home has many new features making this a comfortable home for a large or small family.
The upstairs has a neat wrap around lanai with another larger lanai in the rear with a large patio table with an umbrella and bbq for outside dining. The downstairs has its own little place to stay, with a master bedroom with full bath, a large, comfortable living room and easy no stair access. The town and beaches are all within minutes from the house making shopping and beach time fun. I would recommend to anyone staying here to pack very little since it has its own washer and dryer. And if you forget anything at the store the home is only a couple minutes away from the supermarkets so not to worry.
Thanks again Tony & Merci for allowing me to stay at your beautiful hale. It has plenty of aloha, Mahalo! Mike. CA
