We chose this home for so many reasons. First for the peaceful setting, away from the city noises and traffic. Also the location, remote but easily accessible to all East side activities and destinations. Having our own private well with the best water on the island was and still is a very special treat. Our home contains a separate private detached guest studio with a private garden view that allows us to share our unique space with others. We fell in love at first site. We know you will too.
We love the views, the cool trade wind breezes, the expanse and privacy of the two landscaped acres with private botanical surroundings. Falling asleep to the tropical sounds and waking to the sunrise and birds singing. Swimming in our pool anytime day or night, and showers in our enclosed outdoor shower. Feeding the koi in the mornings. Evening walks around the 2 acres to check on our fruit trees. Enjoying Island coffee in the mornings and island drinks in the evenings. A vacation retreat of our very own.
We are centrally located approximately 20 minutes to most all of the numerous East side attractions. Hilo town, only 20 minutes away is a charming mix of old and new Hawaii where you will find unique shops, restaurants, a theater, boutiques, a museum, a large Farmer's Market with lots of fresh produce, flowers, local art, jewelry and gifts. Hilo is also near Richardson's Beach and other beautiful beaches where you can snorkel and surf. The Hamakua Coast is a remarkable drive. Be sure to stop along the way to visit the Botanical Gardens, Akaka Falls, and on up the coast to Waipio Valley. Kapoho Tide Pools on the Puna Coast has some phenomenal snorkeling and hot ponds. We are just a 10-15 minute walk to Kaloli Point where you will find hiking trails along the cliffs or just sit and relax and watch the waves or even try your hand at fishing. No matter which way you turn there are many new and exciting adventures and beautiful places to explore. Don't forget your camera.
Other Activities: Swimming, Kayaking, hiking, jogging, hot ponds, Farmer's Markets, stand up paddle boarding, body boarding, surfing, helicopter rides, fishing.
Golf: Hilo Municipal Golf Course opened in 1951 and was built on 146 acres of former sugarcane plantation fields. Given the frequent rains common in the Hilo area, this Big Island golf course abounds with a variety of beautiful trees including banyan, monkey pod, eucalyptus, coconut palms, hibiscus, and shower trees.
You'll notice you won't find a single sand bunker anywhere on this course because of Hilo's consistent wet weather. Surprisingly, Hilo Municipal has been the home to many of Hawaii's state champions with more likely to come.
