Property description

This house is my pride and joy! I have created a beautiful writing space and love nest. Perfect for a writing/creative retreat or a couple looking for the perfect spot to be in love in Hawaii. It's the jungle part of the big island, so it's more for the adventurers, who want to hike, snorkel, see black sand beaches, etc..Merland (my house) is in a little subdivision called seaview, one hour south from Hilo, Hawaii. It's a very large open space with a nook where the bedroom is. (private large bathroom, of course). Totally private, clean, quiet, peaceful, great vibe. I have DSL internet, a land line (mobile phone's don't work here), washer/ dryer, full cooking kitchen, queen size comfortable bed, luxury linens and turkish bath towels. Large beautiful bathtub (shower as well) that looks out with a bay window on the back yard. Ohi trees, orchids, pinapple plants, papaya trees.There are two decks. Half an acre of landscaped land with beautiful wonderful smelling plants and flowers, young coco trees, bamboo, plumeria, lime trees, fig tree, young mango tree...night blooming jasmine that smells so great. Many windows to look out at the millions of stars at night from every angle of the house and to wake up with the birds singing and the sun. Or to listen to the rain. So relaxing and good for the soul. It's near Volcano (which attracts millions of visitors a year), 4 minute drive to Kehena (black sand beach) only for the strong swimmers, so be careful! 4 minute drive to Kalani ( a yoga retreat, with spa services as well as meals.) 2 hours drive to Kona. There are no resorts in this area. I have poured my heart into this land and house, I'm looking for clean, kind, non-smoking (cigarettes) people that are looking to have a life-changing experience in one of the most beautiful and wild places in the island of Hawaii.

Keywords: beautiful house, quiet, clean, private house, black sand beach near, gay friendly, on half an acre of beautiful landscaped garden/yard. 2 Lanai's. open space with bedroom nook. Full kitchen. Full bath with big bathtub. No street lights for amazing full moon views and stars with the clear view of the milky way. Wireless internet. Land line (mobile phones don't work here) washer/dryer. continuous hot water. very secluded but easy to get to. 3 minute drive to black sand beach. 3 minute drive to Kalani spa with meals also available there. . 2 minute walk to view the ocean vista. breezy.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: I'm a musician that travels all over the world. I mainly live in New York City. I have discovered the incredible world of The Big Island 12 years ago, and bought a little house with some land surrounding it to make a haven for myself.

Why Kehena:
I went to Kalani. which is a yoga retreat very close to the house and fell in love with the people the area and the yoga teachers.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
the birds waking you with song in the morning. very little noise. the rain on the roof at night. the smell from the night blooming jasmine and the plumeria and tahitian gardenias. The stars and moon at night with the sound of coqui frogs. The black sand beach and the privacy of my land. It's a joyous place that will restore and rejuvenate anyone.
