Elegant, spacious, extraordinarily private 4 bedroom home in the ideal location, with 2 streams, a private waterfall and private natural pool, plus a hot tub.
Experience nature: 2 streams, a private waterfall with a private swimming hole below it, fruit trees, 20 lush landscaped private acres.
Experience serenity: No city lights or noise - only the gentle music of the flowing waters and the gentle trade winds in the palms. No neighbors in sight. No buildings blocking your ocean views.
Experience elegance: Grand, architect-designed home, with marble and hardwood floors, wainscoting and fine details.
Experience the beauty: Expansive views of the beautiful Hamakua coast and the ocean from the spacious veranda.
The setting is utterly private. (In fact, in our hot tub, bathing suits are optional because no one is around to see you.) No city noises, just the sound of flowing waters, breezes through the trees, and bird songs. No roads or city lights are visible from the house, and the house is not visible from the roads, because there is a eucalyptus forest between the house and the nearest road. The scenery is gorgeous in all directions, especially the lush green valley sloping down to the ocean. It's located on the beautiful Hamakua Coast, which is filled with canyons, waterfalls, rivers, beaches, and botanical gardens. There are 2 thrilling zip line tours within a few minutes drive.
Hilo town is only 15 minutes away. There are several beautiful clear-blue swimming beaches right near downtown Hilo: Keaukaha Beach Park, Kealoha Beach Park, Richardson Ocean Park, Onekahakaha Beach Park, Leleiwi Beach Park, Lehia Beach Park - to name a few. Huge (people-sized) friendly sea turtles will swim with you at these beaches.
Other Activities: Volcano viewing, adventure sightseeing, Zip lining, diving, snorkeling, surfing, swimming, hiking, backpacking - everything you can ask for in a tropical vacation, plus a live volcano, is close by. In fact, the Kapehu Retreat House is located in the absolute most convenient spot on the island for accessing all the sights.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, of course, is a must-see. It's a good reason to stay on the east or Hilo side: the volcano and all the amazing sights in the National Park are much easier to get to from the Hilo side. (From the Kona side it's more than two hours to the volcano). In addition to spending several days sightseeing within the National Park, you'll definitely want to visit the Park at night to see the Hale MauMau crater glowing!
If you are an outdoor adventurer, the National Park is filled with wonderful hikes: short hikes, day-hikes, and overnight trips. One of our favorite hikes is a 3-day/2-night wilderness backpack trip to Halape Beach (with ruins and totems from an old Hawaiian fishing village, snorkel reefs and pristine sandy beaches) for the 1st night, and Keauhou Point for the second night, for pristine snorkeling pools and beaches. You'll need a permit from the Park Service, and they will provide directions and maps.
