This new, modern and luxurious home is located in Hawaiian Paradise Park, which is a quiet, agriculturally zoned subdivision with over 100 miles of private road. The main roads are fully paved with most side roads comprised of compacted cinder, ideal for walking, running or cycling. There is about 4 miles of oceanfront with fantastic hiking on the trail abutting the ocean cliffs. Nearby towns of Pahoa (laid back) and Keaau (toward Hilo) offer many shopping amenities within a short drive; historical Hilo town and many restaurant options are only 12 miles away. A quiet country retreat yet close to amenities and conveniences. Explore the nearby hot ponds, Lava Tree State Park, Kapoho Tide Pools for fantastic snorkeling, and the scenic red road drive to the Kalapana lava area. Or, take the jaw-dropping Hamakua coastal drive, on the way to 'Kona side.'
Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We fell in love with the Big Island in 2000 and built Hale E Komo Mai in 2011. Now we are building new memories with our family, friends, and especially our grandchildren. We look forward to coming back to Hawaii each year while continuing to explore this vast and beautifully diverse island.
Why the Owner Chose Keaau: We are excited to share our 'impractical dream' with you, with a relaxing home to return to after a full day of activities and exploring. You will be surrounded by lush, tropical vegetation and a peaceful neighborhood. We looked at many areas on the Big Island and chose Hawaiian Paradise Park for its acreage that provides quiet and privacy, while still being central to the ocean, trails, parks, restaurants and nearby shopping.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate: A unique and modern home designed with covered walkways that connect all three buildings. Impressive lava rock columns, circular planter with seating, and an outstanding outdoor shower were all hand shaped by a local craftsman. The home maximizes light and captures the trade winds and breezes, with sweet scents drifting indoors from the professionally landscaped gardens. The home is large, yet very comfortable for a couple or a large family. The grassed yard is great for the kids to play, to have a game of bocci ball or croquet, or to just relax on the lounge chairs while enjoying all the tropical trees, fruit trees and scented plants and flowers.
