"The Jewel" received its unique name from its first vacation renter because of all the beautiful mosaic work on the walls and floors. The walls have colonies of different Hawaiian fish swimming by, a breaching whale, and Hawaiian shells that are stunningly beautiful. Electricity comes from the solar collectors and this all solar home features no TV, no phone, and a smoke-free environment to truly rejuvenate oneself. Water is collected from the roof and heated by the sun.
Located near the last remaining Hawaiian fishing village of Milolii, you will be 45 minutes south of Kailua-Kona off Highway #11. With 180 degree views of the Ocean, you are a short walk to some of the best snorkeling on the island. This one bedroom, one bath home also has a full size convertible bed in the main room to accommodate more visitors. The lanai expands your living area and allows breathtaking views of the water and night sky, away from the noise and lights of traditional tourists.
Three miles down the hill from the highway, "The Jewel" is located between Kona and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Trips to Kona or Hilo for sightseeing and shopping are easily done in a day. Many people enjoy hiking, fishing, sightseeing, swimming, snorkeling, diving, boating, sailing, shelling, star gazing, or simply resetting and refreshing themselves by reading, writing, or doing their favorite arts and craft project.
Whale Season is from December to April and you may see spinner dolphins, monk seals, or turtles any time of the year. All you need is groceries and your bathing suit to start a wonderful vacation!
