                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: Nature, beautiful landscapting and proximity to the sea compelled us to become stewards of this property. We love the land and hope that you'll share in this magical experience

                          Why the Owner Chose Pahoa:
                          We have been vacationing in Puna, Hawaii for over eleven years renting a friend's home. After becoming attached to the native culture, tropical landscape, and outdoor activities, we decided to build our own home. We designed and constructed the cottage based on our eleven years of vacation living, culling features from the many homes we saw in the area and tailoring them to our Hawaiian lifestyle pursuit of comfortable simplicity.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Steep terrain reveals spectacular 170 degree view of the Pacific ocean and exposes the property to gentle trade winds. proximity of rain forest ensures a symphony of night sounds and a remote, jungle feel at your doorstep. All wood construction (cedar walls and roof, eucalyptus floors, Ipe deck) is rare in the tropics. Open the door and smell cedar and the other woods.
