Lopaka Punana - "Robert's Nest"
Lopaka Punana features 1,246 square feet, two bedrooms, and a large loft. Each bedroom has a king bed and in the loft is a queen. The master bedroom has an in-suite bathroom with shower and the other downstairs bathroom has a tub/shower. The loft has a half bath. Both the dining room table and lanai table seat six. Ceiling fans are in every room, including the kitchen and two in the loft.
The spacious 234 square foot lanai overlooks the 17th tee and the 10th green of the Kona Country Club Ocean Course. The ocean view is 180 degrees and includes Keauhou Bay. The lanai faces west for an always spectacular sunset. You can see the green flash!
Private and extremely quiet but well located. Easy walk to Keauhou Bay, Keauhou Shopping Center with a supermarket, shops and dining including island favorite, Sam Choy’s. Kahaluu Beach Park, Hawaii Island’s best snorkeling bay, is only a short half mile walk. You can walk to Keauhou Bay for ocean kayaking, paddle boarding and snorkeling trips. When you go to the beach, six beach towels and a cooler are yours for the using.
Located on Ali’i Drive it offers a leisurely coastal drive directly into Kailua-Kona village. In a hurry, Kamehameha III Road jumps right into state highway 11 for a trip to Costco, Walmart or access around the island.
Amenities include your own private propane gas BBQ on the lanai. There are only 116 units in the complex but there are three pools and two tennis courts with one also setup for pickle-ball. Each bedroom has a clock/radio. This unit has its own washer and dryer. The telephone has free local and long distance to the US mainland, Canada and the other Hawaiian Islands. A DVD player, Wi-Fi and Netflix are provided.
The newly remodeled kitchen has granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. There are 12 place settings and all the usual kitchen equipment, pots, pans and serving dishes you have at home.
Lopaka Punana translates to Robert’s Nest. Robert (Bob) is one of the owners. This is a take-off on the TV series Magnum PI where Thomas Magnum, played by Tom Selleck, resides as a guest on the Hawaiian estate of lurid novelist Robin Masters. That estate was called Robin’s Nest. Magnum leads an easy lifestyle. Comes and goes as he pleases, works only when he wants, has a refrigerator full of beer and has unlimited use of a red Ferrari 308 GTS. We hope your lifestyle while here be like Magnum’s. Sorry we are still working on getting the Ferrari.
