The top floor boasts two oceanfront spacious master suites with private on-suites, large closets, and private decks perched above the ocean. The "mermaid room" features a spectacular outdoor shower and bath encased in a stained glass privacy screen. Newly decorated with "beach chic" furniture and accessories, the master suites are elegant and inviting. Each has a California king bed with luxury bedding. Both are air-conditioned and have large flat screen televisions.
The main floor offers an expansive kitchen with granite counters, custom cabinets, and stainless steel appliances. A comfortable eating bar seats six and louvered windows insure a constant cross breeze. A spacious open area living room offers comfortable seating with tasteful Hawaiian furniture, local original artwork, and a flat screen television. The sofa doubles as a queen sleeper sofa to comfortably accommodate two extra guests. An additional powder room and fully equipped laundry room complete the main floor inside. An uninterrupted wall of windows insures that all rooms are bright and provide stunning ocean views. A large deck with outdoor dining for six and comfortable recliners are perched above the breaking waves.
The first floor is a huge lanai bordered on one side with a lava rock retaining wall where waves break at high tide. Three lava rock planters display local plant life. The patio has ample seating for sunbathing or shade from the palm trees or the overhanging deck above. Two propane barbecues are available for guests to enjoy. A highlight of the patio is a life-size bronze statue of a mermaid rising from one of the planters.
All three decks and the lanai face the ocean with waves breaking on the lava rock only feet away. All levels provide a wonderful vantage point to watch the spinner dolphins who often frolic just in front of the house and the whales who migrate by the residence spouting and breaching. Mermaid Manor faces west and provides an opportunity to enjoy the glorious, ever-changing Kona sunsets with shades of pink, orange, lavender and the magical "green flash" with the last rays of the sun.
