This is a rare opportunity to own your own Hilo beach house, overlooking Lalakea Pond, a beautiful large pristine brackish pond, which is fed by artesian springs and is easily accessible for swimming. Located on the ocean side of Kalanianaole St., this 2 bedroom, 2 bath home is just steps away from this spectacular wonder.
Because of the proximity to the ocean, the home is elevated. Upstairs is the permitted living area. A wrap-around lanai with a hot tub provides wonderful covered areas for lounging in tropical breezes and enjoying the view of Lalakea pond. The large overhang of the lanai makes this space usable regardless of weather. Step in through sliding glass doors and you’ll enter a comfortable living and dining areas that is open to the kitchen. Throughout the house you’ll find vaulted open-beam ceilings — perfect for tropical ventilation. There are two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a laundry area in the living space upstairs. The bedrooms feature sliding doors to the spacious lanai and great views. The original roof has been replaced.
A rock wall and automatic gate enclose the property. The garden contains lawns and a variety of tropical fruit trees, including lemons, papaya, and mango. A large flowering Puakenikeni tree grows along the side border.
This home has had only one owner. A new owner could bring in their own touches to update this home and make it shine. The location and the view are incredible and hard to find. This home is located between James Kealoha Beach Park (4 mile beach), and Richardson’s Beach Park. Both parks have great swimming, surfing, snorkeling and turtle watching. The Hilo Yacht Club is less than a mile away.
Take advantage of this rare opportunity to own a home in the sunny Keaukaha district of Hilo. Come see why people who know Hilo consider this area to be one of the best.
