Wood Valley house description

If you desire Nature, Nurture or just plain FUN! ; Hawaii Nature Retreat is the best location for you. This lovely and very comfortable, historical, 5 bedroom Plantation House, plus sleeping porch and lanai make it perfect for a couple, family group or small seminar. Everything you need (except food) is provided so you can travel lightly. Hawaii Nature Retreat is totally private on 12 acres of scenic and natural beauty, surrounded by the tree-studded flanks of Mauna Loa. (the most massive, active volcano on Planet Earth!) No one to see or hear you…make all the noise you want! Or savor the total seclusion and quiet. Except, for the marvelous variety of birds that live here. Be sure and bring your binoculars to watch the Io (Hawaiian Hawk), Pueo (Hawaiian Owl), Finches, Turtle Doves, Cardinals, and particularly the hundreds of Mynah birds that nest nightly in the huge throngs of Bamboo trees on the property. Don’t miss this! Your group is free to explore the acreage; visit the Indigenous Hawaiian Garden, enjoy a walk through The Grass Maze (with hidden surprises), into the Ceremonial Circle with Meditation Platform that looks out to the Pacific Ocean, Sunrise and Moonrise. Sit around the large fire pit where you can be free to make a fire any day or night of the year! Then, stroll over to the Spiral Garden and Dove Aviary. Visit Hero the Goat and feed the sheep and chickens, walk on through the Koa Forest and then over to the Veggie Garden and Water Lily Pond. All the while you can be hunting down ripe bananas, Mac-nuts, Liliquoi, guava, avocado, grapefruit, oranges, lemons and limes, chayote squash and coffee. In fact, if you would like to help in any of the gardens, with the numerous varieties of tasks, please be our guests! After exploring the land come back and relax and enjoy the Steam House and outside Bathing Area, which nightly offers fantastic panoramic viewing of the stars.. Experience the vacation of your life. We’re only minutes from Punalu’u Black Sand Beach and 30 minutes from Kilauea Volcano. We’ll help you plan your island visit, if desired. We have the best contacts to Dolphin and Whale trips, hikes and music, etc. Right here in Wood Valley we have a Tibetan Buddhist Temple (chants offered twice daily), a visit to the Kau Coffee Mill, Kau Forest Reserve, gas, groceries and golf are nearby. Did we mention, no need to buy water when you come here? We’re all organic and have the purest water on Planet Earth with no chlorine or fluoride. It is all truly a gift and a blessing. This unique natural beauty is here for you. BE OUR GUESTS!!!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: We stayed here on vacation and fell in love with this property 11 years ago. We decide to retire early and live off of the organic gardens here: we didn't know how to farm yet! The last 13 years has been so much fun and gone so fast; we actually believe we died and went to heaven because it has been so wonderful. . Rich is a retired electrical engineer/physicist with an interest in the Universe Story. Sandra is a retired teacher, holds a masters in transpersonal psychology, and is a master photographer (Google search on Sandra Lee Reha). We wish to share this property with others.

                  Why the Owner Chose Wood Valley:
                  As stated, We fell in love with the property. That feeling only grows as a beautiful life here continues.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  No pesticides have been used here for over 30 years, so the birds love everything, including free bananas, figs, other fruits, and we have hundreds of wild birds that return to our bamboo patches over night. There are no street lights in Wood Valley, and only a few houses, so at our 2400 foot elevation, the andromeda galaxy and the milky way are magnificent: better than I have ever seen anywhere. Children love to hand feed our tame goat, and some of our sheep herd. We have a harness for the goat to pull children around the property in our wagon. Last but not least is the spectacular Spring Water: bathe and drink the purest water on the planet, only a few minutes from its spring source with no storage or chlorination: only pure water. We are Hawaii public drinking water system #166 with water so pure it needs no chlorination to pass State and Federal health standards.
