Plantation Style Home in Kalapana


12-7848 Ainaua Place
Pahoa, Hawaii  96778


Enjoy East Hawaii at it best from this plantation-style home located in the coastal community of Kalapana. This home nestled into a tropical property, is a successful vacation rental and just a short walk away from the Pacific Ocean.

The home was built in true Hawaiian style to take advantage of the trade winds East Hawaii is famous for. Built on pier and post, you walk up the steps onto the large 486 square foot front lanai which has room enough for chairs, tables, BBQ and more. During those quiet, relaxing evenings out on the lanai you can hear the wonderful sounds of the ocean.

As you enter the home through the double glass doors you come to the living area with its large windows which catch the morning light and great ocean breezes. The open kitchen has granite counter tops with bar seating for 4, wood cabinets and a window with view of the back yard. Next to the kitchen there is plenty of room for a breakfast table inside or go just outside the back-sliding glass doors to the 288 square foot covered back lanai and enjoy your meal there. Down the short hall in the nicely appointed full bathroom and the two bedrooms which each have glass doors out to the lanais.

As a bonus, set above and separate from the main home is a 156 square foot studio. With its separate entrance this makes a great guest or art room. From here you have a 360-degree view that includes the Pacific Ocean as well as the rest of Kalapana.

Other features of this home include easy maintenance ceramic floors, laminate floors in bedrooms, high ceilings throughout, wood trimmed windows and doors, wooden base boards, extra windows for light and breezes and more!

Within walking distance is Kalapana Shores where you will find the newly formed black sand beach along with a colorful bi-weekly farmers market. There is sunny weather most of the year and great trade winds flow through this area almost daily. This small ocean side community has a lot to offer and real estate prices are still very affordable.

Directions - Take Hwy 130 almost to the very end and just past the sign that says, "End of Road 1 mile" make the left turn towards Hwy 137 (Kalapana-Kapoho Beach Road). Just a short distance after this turn and just around the bend you will see to your left a road sign that says Ahia Road. Make that left and then the right (towards the ocean) and then the first left onto graded AINAUA PL (look for road sign). House will be on your left. Sign on property.
