THE POOLHOUSE!!! Have your very own private resort. Just 6 miles from the beautiful beaches of the Kohala Coast. A-Bay, Waialea Bay, and Hapuna Beach are all just a short drive from your "resort". The Poolhouse comes with a solar heated, salt water pool and a gas heated grotto with waterfall. The house itself comes complete with every thing you need for a private, romantic get away. A fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, microwave and dishwasher. A commercial gas grill is right outside if you feel like cooking and dining next to the pool. Also the Poolhouse has a queen size bed, a living area with flat screen tv, Yamaha stereo with IPhone Dock or aux jack, Direct TV cable, and high speed wifi. Start your day with a early swim in the refreshing salt water followed by breakfast (provided by guest) next to the pool. Then when you return from a day of adventure or relaxing at the beach have a rest in the outdoor hammock or a soak in the heated grotto with the waterfall splashing next to you. Follow that by grilling your dinner on the gas grill and dinner outside as the waterfall gently splashes nearby and you have a perfect day. The Poolhouse was completely renovated in 2013 with brand new kitchen and bathroom.
