                  20 mins to Hawaii's Black Sand Beach! On 3.5 acres of Historic Lush Ahualoa forest, and 5 different types of bamboo. Retreat like space perfect for relaxing and being with nature. Waipio Valley with waterfalls, black sand beaches for swimming, snorkeling and surfing. You can also hike through ancient hawaiian lands to waterfalls. You might even run into the wild horses, it's the only place left in Hawaii that still has wild horses. Hapuna Beach 25 mins away has beautiful white sand beaches, where you can body board, soak up sun. Also 69's beach just 5 mins away has some of the best snorkeling! Golfing just 10 mins away, and horse back riding. 10 mins away is our Honoka'a town, with Honoka'a People's theatre for a fun night at the theatre. You have many restaurants, and local shops. Our favorite is Cafe Il Mondo they make fresh pizza dough! 15 mins away is Waimea town, with farmers markets, Food land and KTA grocery stores, more shops and restaurants from health food stores, Japanese, korean, McDonalds, Dairy Queen, KFC etc. If you like bird watching or hunting you are in the perfect place!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: Business owner, best selling author and entrepreneur, loves to surf, paint, hike and tahitian dance. I grew up in Canada and now Hawaii is my home for the last 11 years. I love it! I love the space it's so peaceful and creatively inspiring.

                  Why the Owner Chose Ahualoa:
                  We fell in love with this property the first day. It is like a zen retreat in the forest. The space is very relaxing and peaceful yet it's only 15 mins into town. I wanted to experience country living and be with nature where I can be creative with my paintings.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I love waking up to the birds, and other wild life, it's so quite out here and you are surrounded by nature. There's macadamia nut, coffee, honey, and tea forms within walking distance. Lost of Hiking and biking trails. There's Horse back riding, Golfing, Top beaches and resorts close by. Our house is perfect for family gatherings and retreats. I love looking out my windows in the morning at the eucalyptus forest and bamboo. My favorite beach Waipio valley, I love to surf there at 6:30 am when it's clean and now wind, perfect conditions for surfing, plus often there's dolphins in the water!!
