Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This is a quiet retreat on South Point at the top of Discovery Harbour, where the weather is not too hot or cold year round. We now have wi-fi internet throughout the house, but no television. We do have good signal for most cell phone plans. But please feel free to disconnect from the rest of the world and enjoy all the island has to offer. The coffeemaker has a builtin grinder for whole beans, so enjoy a cup of local coffee on the lanai.

Volcano National Park is 30 minutes away. Punaluu Black Sand Beach is 10 minutes away, and the Punaluu golf course is close to the beach.

Naalehu, the southernmost town in the U.S., is 2 miles away and offers a good farmer's market on Wdenesdays. The bakery is worth the trip, and we reccomend the Hana Hau Restatraunt as well.

Whittington Park offers great oceanside picnicking and tidal pools to explore. South Point is beautiful with the sea caves and cliff divers, and Green Sands is worth the trip.

The house has 2 queen beds and 2 twin beds. There is a TV and DVD player. There is a Redbox location in Ocean View, 10 minutes down the road.

Keywords: 3 bed, 2 bath ranch near the top of Discovery Harbour

About Mark and Maggie Dudash

We fell in love with Hawaii when we went on a second honeymoon. South Point is quiet and rural, just the way we like it. We live about an hour outside of Chicago, and enjoy some of the amenities that a big city has to offer, but prefer a more quiet life, at home and on vacation. We enjoy traveling with our girls, and as a family like to explore God's creation. Living on the Great Lakes made us look for water, and we enjoy the ocean and all it has to offer.

Mark and Maggie Dudash purchased this house in 2010

Why Mark and Maggie Dudash chose Discovery Harbour

We chose South Point for its quiet rural setting and proximity to the National Park. We enjoy hiking and kayaking, and sitting on the shore listening to the ocean. We also like the tradewinds and cooler temperatures at night.

What makes this house unique

The local coffee is great. We love the access to Farmers' Markets and fruit stands. Volcano Village and Naalehu are quiet towns with a unique Island character that we appreciate. The fact that we're halfway between Hilo and Kona give us the advantage of both sides of the island to explore.

Great house in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here and loved the location. Big house, very quiet neighborhood, and awesome coffee shops, bakeries, and farms right down the street. Would definitely book again.

Big Island Vacation - September 29 to October 6 2017

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home was a great place for us to hang our hats during our time on the Big Island. It was close to the volcano, the black sand beach and the green sand beach. The house was well equipped with every thing we needed - the beds were very comfortable and the nights were cool and great for sleeping. Our 92 year old dad traveled with us and he enjoyed sitting on the lanai each morning (as the rest of us did as well) drinking his coffee. We could not have found a better location or house for us to enjoy as our home base while traveling and site seeing on the island. The neighbor brought us some tangerines from her fruit trees which we enjoyed very much. It is truly a Quiet Retreat and beautiful. When we arrived (which was late due our flight arrival time), the light on the lanai was on for us and a light over the kitchen stove was on for us as well, we thought that was a very special thing since it was dark. We had no trouble finding the house using our GPS system.

Just what I needed...

  • 4 of 5

Like another guest, I was here to visit my daughter at Pacific Quest. I did not spend a lot of time in the house as a result. But it was perfectly equipped for all of my needs. Well appointed and WIFI was terrific. All in all, I would recommend if you're looking for a small house as a launch point for the southern area of the big island! Oh, and the sunrises were all amazing!

Perfect piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Get location for us to use as home base while visiting Hawaii. Well furnished and stocked with all necessities. Great place to come back after long hikes and adventures to make dinner and recoup for the next day. Look forward to staying on our next Big Island trip.
