Hawi Town is a short 5 minute walk from this extraordinary home, set upon a private hilltop promontory with 180 degree ocean views and Maui in the distance.
This enchanting home is an open beam construction using 20'x 20' timbers. A 16' sliding wall opens the living room to an outdoor covered lanai creating a free flow of space.
Rare and unusual hardwoods have been incorporated throughout the house for cabinetry, stairway, doors and all woodwork. Bamboo flooring is found in the kitchen, both full bathrooms and Master Bedroom. This is old hawaii at its most charming.

The choice of Hawi Town on the Big Island came after years of searching the Hawaiian Island chain for the perfect place of rest and renewal from our mainland lives. Hawi sets one back in time to the 1940's.
The clapboard storefronts, friendly townsfolk and quaint, slow paced lifestyle are priceless.
Our home is uniquely constructed from giant timbers salvaged and restored from the dismantling of Oregon's Willamette Paper Mill. It evokes the feel of the island's clipper ship era with it's delightfully cozy interior. The house has become a magnet for family and friends providing a compound for various special gatherings over the years and each visitor continues to wax on, long after their departure, about the wonder of time spent in this very special spot.
Breakfast under the banyon tree, lunch at Sushi Rock and dinner at the Bamboo Restaurant, all a 5 minute walk!
