A custom-designed home nestled among flowers and fruit trees at the end of a country lane. Here, you'll find all the conveniences, but no sign of tourism to detract from the charm of 'Old Hawaii'. Open decks, rather than closed hallways, connect the 'Great Room' (spacious living/dining/kitchen) to the bedrooms. The chef(s) can easily see and converse with their friends and family in the dining and living room areas. On a cool or rainy evening, the fireplace can be enjoyed from most areas of the Great Room. Walls in all rooms are adorned with original paintings and limited edition prints by Hawaiian artists. You can enjoy beautiful views and soft breezes from inside the house - especially the Great Room with its large expanses of glass - and from the open decks outside each guest room. When guests first arrive, they often say, 'the pictures don't do it justice', and 'It feels like a botanical garden sanctuary!'

Discover how Hawaii felt before the tourist boom, surrounded by acres of tropical palms and 22 varieties of fruit trees. Kissed by trade winds that have floated over 2,500 miles of ocean to caress you. The groundbreaking carbon-neutral Hi`ilani EcoHouse, the new home of the owners of this vacation rental, is also located on this property. Tours may be arranged for a fee.
Year Purchased: 1994
About the owner: Young seniors in love with each other and this heavenly piece of land. For 20 years we have worked with the land to bring forth verdant vistas, abundant fruit and nut trees, meditative nooks, honoring the spirits of the generations who loved this land before us.
Why the Owner Chose Honokaa: This land called out to us the first time we saw it. For a year, we lived in a tent where we could feel every breeze and hear each birdsong, while we designed a home to reflect the relaxed Hawaiian lifestyle while taking fullest advantage of the tradewinds and the stunningly beautiful view of the blue Pacific - two miles away but seemingly close enough to touch from our vantage point at 1,000 feet elevation where ii's rarely very hot or cold, but almost always 'just right'.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Clean air. Peace. Quiet. Serenity. Wild turkeys. Fragrant flowers. Twenty-two varieties of fruits you can pick and enjoy in season. Swaying palms. Colors everywhere, including just about every shade of green imaginable. Relaxation. Outdoor hot tub. Hawaii the way the ancients enjoyed it, but with up-to-date conveniences for your comfort.
