Before you enter the grounds of the Sheraton Kona Resort and Spa, you barely see on your right a rock wall and wood gate. When you enter the sliding gate, you discover what seems like a secret sanctuary. A vast property on the ocean with three houses at a distance. You are living your adventure in what feels like old Hawaii. The romance of Hawaii is captured in the sounds of the birds, the colors and smells of the vegetation, the ocean breezes, the view of the Bay and Pacific Ocean at a distance, the sun setting over the blue waters. Relax under a mango tree or even better on the large lawn next to your private swimming cove. Maybe you will never leave this paradise found during your stay.

There are three renovated houses covering only 15% of the estate compound. Although they all have modern amenities, the design and materials are reminiscent of old hawaii. It is no wonder the estate has been in the same family for over 70 years and that Keauhou Bay was the choice place to reside of the Hawaiian royalty. King Kamemeha III, the lastKing, was born at this Bay.

"How to best describe the Evans Estate. You could use words such as luxury, gated, 5 star. But the real point is, the location and old Hawaii appeal of the 3 houses on oceanfront grounds with swimming access is unrepeatable.
