Hakalau house description

This home has sweeping Ocean views (not just a peek-a-boo view through the trees) .

The 'Plantation style' house is brand new, is clean, bright and breezy. It has 3 bedrooms (1 king bed and 2 queens) and 3 1/2 baths. . The home also has cable TV and wireless internet. The full kitchen has everything to prepare a delicious meal, granite counters and an ocean view make cooking enjoyable! There is also a washer and dryer.

The Double full glass doors (with blinds) open up to the Lanai which has a table and deck chairs to enjoy the view. The Lanai is a favorite spot of guests and the most common comment is how peaceful and beautiful it is with the expansive ocean view. Enjoy the beautiful sunrise over the ocean and passing ships in the afternoon.

The home is located just 15 minutes north of Hilo on the Hamakua Coast. Famous Akaka Falls is approximately 1 mile up the road for easy visiting or morning walks. The village of Honomu is close by with a Pizza/sandwich shop, Galleries and a Bakery. There is a botanical garden just minutes away, the new Akaka Falls 'Zip-lines' are minutes away and really fun! Kilauea Crater and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park are a 45 minute drive. There is a renowned 'Farmers Market' downtown Hilo. The Honoli'i Beach Park is a 5 minute drive and has a lawn area, restrooms, showers, picnic tables, and lifeguards. Waipio Valley is a 30 minute drive.

The home is centrally located for easy access to all Big Island attractions. There are also brochures to help plan your daily adventures during your stay. The Big Island offers endless outdoor activities to enjoy.

Your comfort is important so we will try to accommodate any special requests.

**June 2014** Disclosure: the lot across the street is under construction. At this time, noise level is minimum. This new home will NOT block the view from our home as it is on a lower elevation. I will post updates as the construction progresses.

              Come relax is this spacious 3 bedroom and 3 full bath home with complete kitchen, washer/dryer and dishwasher. This house was built in August 2012, and has porcelain tile and bamboo flooring the first floor and carpeting on the second floor.

              Enjoy spectacular ocean views from the lanai with your family. Cool breezes and ceiling fans in every room will keep you comfortable all year round. This home comfortably sleeps 6, with a King size bed in the master bedroom, and a queen size bed in each of the other two bedrooms.

              The house and your belongings are secured by Alert Alarm for 24 hour protection.

              Five minutes south is the quaint town of Honomu with Akaka Falls and Mr. Ed's Bakery. Downtown Hilo is an additional 10 minute drive south, where you will find restaurants, museums and unique local stores (Sig Zane and Hawaiian Force are both found only in Hilo!). Continue on another 30 minutes south to visit the Volcano National Park.

              To the North, beautiful Waipio Valley is a 30 minute drive. Tour the Hawaiian Vanilla Company in Paauilo and continue on to Waimea and paniolo (cowboy) country.

              If you are splitting your Hawai'i Island stay between the East and West sides, this home is an easy and breathtaking two hour drive from Kailua-Kona.

              **July 2014 update: there is construction of a new house next door and across the street. Both homes are almost complete. Any noise is minimal at this point, and limited to 8:30-4:30 M-F. I will update construction status as it progresses. July 29, 2014: construction continues, but noise is minimal. I do apologize for the inconvenience!

              About: We live and work on O'ahu and love to visit Hawai'i Island!

              Why Hakalau:
              We fell in love with the Hamakua Coast, and the small sub-division of Hakalau Plantation Village was a perfect spot for our home away from home. We love the view, the constant breeze, walk to the beach and even the coqui frogs!
