The “Lalamilo Beach Bungalow” has been a labor of love for the owners, who have taken a personal interest in the restoration and preservation of this historic,1930’s beach front home. Originally accessible only by boat (there were no roads to the beach) the owners vacationed there with just their family and friends. Now a vacation rental, the three bedroom house is available to beach lovers from around the world. Nestled against a gradually sloping hillside and overlooking Waialea Bay, one of the Big Island’s few white sandy beaches, the house epitomizes Old Hawaii with its simple, open architecture that invites ocean breezes and frames spectacular sunsets. Original hardwood floors and Ohia (a native Hawaiian wood) counter tops add to the charm as do the authentic Hawaiian furnishings and artwork throughout.
The close proximity of the house to the water make this an ideal spot to snorkel, swim, sunbathe, surf, dive and whale watch. From the kitchen, dining and living areas, you can watch children playing in the water and building sand castles on the beach. Designed for three couples or a family, the house sleeps up to 6 adults, plus 2 children on the large punees in the living room. Two of the bedrooms can made up into either king or twin beds while the third offers a double bed. All three bedrooms open out onto a lanai and have ocean views.
Amenities include; WiFi, Cable HDTV/DVD, phone, iPod/iPhone docking station stereo, a fully equipped kitchen, gas BBQ as well as beach towels chairs toys. There is also new bath house with a double head shower located just off the back porch, as well as the original “Hale Li’i” which is a 1/2 bath located behind the house, up a short foot path. Downstairs,there is another a wash room with a shower, double sinks and a washer/dryer. Best of all, is a lovely, incredibly well located private patio right on the beach! The Pai Pai (as it’s always been called) is an ideal spot to spend time day or night.
