Keywords: High on a bluff 600 ft above Waipio Bay, on property once owned by King Kamehameha IV, sits Hale 'Io. Magical sunsets and sunrises without the glare or heat, Maui on the horizon, gentle nightime rains to lull you to sleep (and make the rainbows) and a quiet and peacefulness so hard to find - this is the magic of Hale 'Io. Lush surroundings, sexy pool with concealed rock slide and waterfall and views that never quit, never. Watch whales from the lanai or ocean deck, awaken to the birds, listen to the wind - it really speaks to you here.
Owner-built, architect designed, custom home for laid back family living. Lush grounds, organic fruit orchard, ample parking, sexy beach-entry pool, magnificent kitchen - 2 dishwashers, 2 microwaves, 2 ovens, warming drawer - fit for the accomplished cook. Color abounds to reflect the natural hues of Hawaii. The house is the color of the ocean, both deep and shallow water and inside is a rainbow cacophony that no photos can do justice. Simply stunning for the non color-phobes! Many exotic woods and finishes, but truly designed for in and out living and a laid back lifestyle. Culinary tours originate here and the chef is available for your private repast. You can sleep a lot more than 10 here, but need
to believe that the comfy sofa, futons and pune' on the lanai are OK for overnights. Don't worry, you'll believe, as that is where you'll nap! Bring the kids, but they have to sign the contract about the cliff, the pool, the sliding hill and the fort ;-) - which means they must be at least the age of reason and capable of understanding the danger. Pool is completely fenced, cliff is not.
Five bedrooms, 3 with ensuite bathrooms, one with 'across the hall' bathroom and one without. Two lush outdoor showers. Secret room.....if you can find it, you can sleep there.

Physician/business woman who retired to Hawaii in 2005. Built this house for family and has thoroughly enjoyed living here. Returning to another home owned in the neighborhood as children have moved on a bit.
This was our home. If you could build a luxury home in Yosemite, you would, right? This property is simply magical. The ocean views are stunning.
Nature abounds in many forms and that is what we have enjoyed the most. Hard to beat watching whales from the lanai.
