Pepeekeo house description

Stately sitting atop a 26 acre former sugar mill plantation, lays the tranquility of the Old Sugar Mill Plantation. Ideally located 11 miles north of Hilo along the scenic Hamakua coast, this elegantly appointed seven bedroom home epitomizes the true Hawaiian spirit of aloha in a beautiful, totally relaxing setting. Imagine yourself spending a morning on your private lanai watching humpback whales as they suddenly breach the beautiful waters of the Hamakua coast or enjoying a cocktail with a loved one next to the fabulous waterfall and A’lia stream that flows through the center of the property. Walk through the lush orchards of the property and pick fresh oranges, bananas, passion fruit, rambutan, longon, papaya and many other fruits and vegetables. Enjoy postcard like views of not only the beautiful ocean but also Mauna Kea at its towering 13,796 feet, tropical birds and a view of the stars unlike anything you have ever encountered. Be our guests and see why the Old Sugar Mill Plantation plays a big part in making Hawai'i no ka 'oi (The Best).

              Car: Recommended

              Being Hawai'i, the list of things to do and places to visit are nearly endless:

              Picturesque Waipio Rim Valley is a short 45 minute drive up the scenic Hamakua Coast.

              Akaka Falls State Park with its towering 422 waterfall is only 15 minutes away.

              Hawaii Volcanoes National Park offers great hiking and sightseeing. It is about an hour away and offers a full day or more of journeys.

              Nani Mau Gardens is on the edge of Hilo and offers 22 acres of beautiful gardens to tour.

              Waimea, the Hawaiian Cowboy town, is a must see during your stay. It is an hour away and sits at 2700 feet where the weather is a little cooler. Watch a rodeo here for great family fun.

              The home itself sits on the edge of the quaint, seaside town Pepeekeo. Being only 15 minutes from Hilo, it offers guests the opportunity to relax in a quiet, relaxing home near the ocean yet still be close to great shopping, dining and sightseeing.

               

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About: Steve and I are truly blessed to be not only residents of the Big Island but to have the opportunity to manage such an incredible home for our dear friend. Helen, the owner, shares our compassion in ensuring our guests feel the true spirit of Aloha while staying at the Old Sugar Mill Plantation. So that our incoming guests know, in Hawai'i, we like to hug a lot! So if you reach out to shake a hand here, don't be surprised if they give you a hug in return. While you are here, you are family! It's the Hawaiian way of life.

              Why Pepeekeo:
              We felt as though this home was all about spending quality time with family and friends. Walking the surrounding 26 acres brings on such a feeling of tranquility and amazes one at the beauties Hawai'i has to offer. While on the island, we love to spend time on the front lanai 'talking story' about Hawai'i, good times and our journeys to come.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              There are few large homes like this Hawaii. It makes for the perfect family, corporate or event location.. You can prepare your own delicious meals in the spacious and modern kitchen as well as tour the acreage and pick your own fresh fruits straight from our orchards.
