Property description

Let our beautiful Hawi home be your get-away.

This remarkable 'Luna' (manager's residence) plantation style house was moved to the Kilana Ranch in the 1960's by Bob Dylan's sister, so the story goes. It was originally built during the turn of the century near Hilo and recently remodeled in 2012. The kitchen includes Kenmore Elite stainless steel appliances, including a 5 burner propane stove with convection oven and a 31 cu ft refrigerator with water filter and ice maker, and a dishwasher. The top of the line small appliances, utensils, and cutlery make this kitchen a chef's dream.
Kilana Ranch has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master has an organic latex king mattress, walk-in closet and ocean view. The cozy suite has a queen bed and its own private bathroom with a creek view. The third room/office has a twin bed (which can be switched out for a queen per your request), and a tropical view (palms, bamboo, papaya, and more!). All beds are new and boast luxury linens and down comforters. The living room couch also has a pull out queen mattress for your extra house guests. The bathrooms (2 showers and a tub) are complimented with plush towels.
We have installed brand new, high efficiency front load washer and dryer in our laundry room or you can choose to use the clothes line on sunny days.
Our 3 acre sanctuary is abundant with tropical flora and many mature fruit trees. Bananas, avocados, lulos, lilikoi, ginger, mangoes, oranges, tangerines, limes, papaya, jack fruit, pineapple, mountain apple, macadamia nuts, sweet potato, kabocha squash, guava, strawberry guava, thimble berries, and coconuts may be ripe during your stay. We have 10 free range hens that supply fresh organic eggs daily.
There is a wood burning stove to keep you warm on cool nights and comfortable on rainy days. We have also installed a fresh water cedar soaking tub to stargaze in. Can you imagine soaking in the hot tub while staring at a full moon through the coconut palms or perhaps switching between the 110* (if desired) tub, to the claw-foot cold plunge to the outdoor shower for an exhilarating rush.
There is extra snorkel equipment, sporting equipment, beach towels, books & board games.
In the office there is a large desk & a printer/scanner as well as lightning fast internet. Even though you are worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the 'real world' you can still be well connected.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a young family that loves Hawi, travel, adventuring, and whipping up a mean dinner with our friends and family.

Why the Owner Chose Hawi:
The Kilana Ranch property is designed to be a self sufficient paradise. It is close enough to town to walk to dinner, yet far enough not to have to.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property is a lush tropical sanctuary just minutes from the brilliant sun and sand of the best beaches on the Big Island. With the cool trade winds, there is no need for air conditioning, and a cozy blanket will keep you snug through the night. You will never forget your early morning coffee on the lanai, gazing at the grand Pacific and the tree tops swaying.
