Property description

Enjoy spectacular 180-degree ocean views from every room of this beautifully remodeled plantation-style home. Extensive use of beautiful Shoji screens and a traditional Furo tub in the master bath highlight this retreat-like home set on three lush acres. A traditional zendo (Buddhist meditation area) adds to the serenity of the atmosphere.

The house is surrounded by park-like landscaping with almost an acre of manicured lawns dotted with tropical fruit trees, coconut and banana palms in almost continuous production, and gorgeous orchids and plumeria. Help yourself to papayas, guavas, bananas, coconuts, pineapples and avocadoes and other delicious tropical fruits (there's almost always something ripe and ready to pick)

The hillside location and surrounding acreage grant a high degree of privacy and the electric-gated entry assures security. The house is well-stocked with videos and a variety of books including several excellent local guidebooks. Cable television and wireless, high-speed internet access are included for those who don't want to be too disconnected from the 'real world'.

The private backyard swimming pool and covered lanai make this an excellent choice for families. The extremely well-supplied, modern kitchen is a chef's delight. All amenities including seasonings and basic staples are there for your use. You will enjoy breakfasts on the screened lanai caressed by the gentle tradewinds. From the breakfast table you can actually see the plumes of migrating humpback whales just offshore.

The Hamakua coast offers unparalleled outdoor activities including nearby Akaka Falls, Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens, and beautiful hiking trails. Four-Mile Scenic drive is just a few blocks away, along with beautiful Onomea Bay. We are located minutes from Honoli'i, one of the Big Island's best surfing spots.

The area is laced with streams, waterfalls and swimming holes, all against a backdrop of lush tropical vegetation. Located just one mile from the dramatic sea cliffs of Pepeekeo Point, the house is ideally located for exploration of the Big Island. Volcanoes National Park is only 45 minutes away, as is the Waipio Valley to the north. Kailua-Kona is a 90 minute drive. The windward side's best swimming beaches are a short drive.

Hilo offers its unique blend of Old-Hawaii charm and modern conveniences, shopping and restaurants. The Farmers Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays should not be missed! A tremendous variety of handicrafts from all over the islands are available at some of the best prices to be found. Local produce in all its wonderful variety abounds. The Lyman Museum and the Tsunami Museum are also well worth a visit.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: My wife and I live in Inverness California when we are not here in Pepeekeo. We sometimes joke about having to choose between paradise #1 and paradise #2. I am a practicing Emergency Physician and administrator for a large, multi-state Emergency Medicine partnership. My wife, Laura is a Voice Teacher and director of a small local children's theater company in Point Reyes Station, CA. We are both practicing Buddhists and have a dedicated meditation room in the house.

Why the Owner Chose Hilo:
My sister is a nurse practitioner who has lived and worked in the Hilo area for 20+ years. We fell in love with the area during multiple visits here and decided to buy a second home. Our vision has been to create a serene, retreat-like space where families and small groups, as well as ourselves, can enjoy the uniquely nurturing environment of this beautiful island.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The privacy, quiet, gorgeous ocean views and beautiful gardens of our home make for a wonderful place to simply hang-out and relax. The pool and large yard and covered patio are very popular with families with children. We LIVE here part-time and the house is our home. It is furnished and equipped not like a typical vacation rental, but like a home. Our guests have always appreciated that and been very respectful of our home, which we deeply appreciate.
