My husband and I are currently living and teaching in southern California. We visit Hawaii frequently up-dating our home and improving the landscape. Our son is the on-site caretaker. Hopefully our daughter and her kids will get to visit soon and enjoy the beauty of Hawaii.
We enjoy this semi-rural, quiet neighborhood. Hawaiian Paradise Park is close to many activities and town, yet not in town or in the midst of the tourist activities. We specifically choose this house because of its size. The kitchen and living areas are amazing. You could have a huge family gathering with plenty of room. Another factor is the landscape with the beautiful lava flows across the yard. Although there are many older plants on the grounds there is still much room for me to add the plants that interest me. I am having a great time planting all sorts of new fruit trees and flowers.
The special treat that this house provides me is the opportunity to visit the volcano viewing area regularly. It is breathtaking and I never tire of it. The viewing area is close and an easy drive. It is also a quick drive to Volcanoes National Park.
