Property description

'Hale Nahele' (Forest House in Hawaiian) aptly describes the PRIVATE setting for this custom multi-facetted redwood and cedar 2BD, 2BA house set among mature tropical trees and plants. The home is perched above a seasonal stream on a 3/4 acre property. You may enjoy a game on a large yard, while grilling on the Barbeque, an evening around the fire pit in the gazebo or perhaps star gazing in serenity on a 'floating bed' outside the master bedroom. Help yourself to any of the edibles you discover freely growing among the mature trees such as avocados, passion fruit (lilikoi), surinam cherries or papayas. Anthuriums, the native 'Nanu' (gardenia) and seasonal orchid flowers scattered about the landscape are sure to please your senses!
Inside, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the spaciousness of this customized 12-sided home. Antique Amber stained concrete floors were cut to look like large tile. Your eye will be drawn to the vaulted ceiling and peer through the spectacular 6ft circular skylight. The guest room has 2 twin beds, the master has a plush queen bed. The master bath features unique his and her sinks in front of a large picture window and an outdoor bamboo-surround shower! Both rooms have spacious cedar-lined closets.
Amazing forests views encompass the house from every room.
You'll appreciate your privacy while being within 1-2 blocks of the conveniences of Kapaau town such as local coffee shops, cafe's, and restaurants, shopping, ATM, and salon services. There are many other visitor attractions, including the popular statue of King Kamehemeha. The nearby Kamehameha Public Park has a pool, gym, tennis courts, playground, 6-hole golf course and skate park. A few minutes drive to the north will end at the breath-taking Pololu Valley where you may hike down and enjoy wiggling your toes in the black sand, collecting driftwood or simply relax and soak in the Hawaiian sun among the picturesque scenery. Boogie boards, beach chairs, towels and snorkel gear are available for your convenience when you venture out to any of our great nearby beaches.

For the adventurous try either of the zip-lines through a tropical forest where breath taking waterfalls can be seen. ATV or horseback ride on private trails with a guide. Float down the historic Kohala ditch in a kayak as a relaxing alternative. Hike to a black sand beach only minutes away. Whale watch off nearby Lighthouse point. The property is walking distance from Kapaau's unique shops, galleries, and varieties of cafe's and restaurants with a local flare to their entrees. We're located a block from the famous historical King Kamehameha Statue. Only 5 minutes from Hawi's shops, galleries, and restaurants. Every Saturday in Hawi is the open farmer's market ablaze with fresh, local, organic foods. Venture 10 min. South to tour an ancient Hawaiian village at Lapakahi Park. Just 15 minutes further will put you at wonderful white sand beaches where you may glimpse a basking green sea turtle or enjoy the tourist amenities of resort shopping and dining.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: This vacation home is run by the Eubank family: Kirk, Lani, Aaron and Kandace. We have been Kohala residents for 30 years.

Why Kapaau:
We chose this property for its location and size. We found this right-in-town, yet private jewel of a lot and decided that it called for a unique house! All who have visited there have commented that they would love to use it as a vacation rental...and now it is! E komo mai.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We loved the variety of the trees and plants surrounding the property. The driveway enters the lot between two tall mango trees. Stand outside the front door and across the lawn you can't help by marvel at a banyan tree root that has 'S'd it's way up a palm tree! Though it's off the beaten path, it's still close to everything! Come enjoy this private, quiet, beautiful spot in North Kohala!
