                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: We bought this property over 10 years ago, it was nothing but lava rock and jungle. We had it cleared and we planted over 100 palms and 50 fruit trees. A few years later we started to build and now this is what is here.

                  Why the Owner Chose Keaau:
                  We loved the location, the neighbors are very friendly and love talking story. It rains but not as much as other areas in the Hilo area. The ocean is not far, close enough for an evening walk.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  We bought two one acres lots so we would have plenty of room. The trees are producing tasty fruit which is free for the picking. There is nothing like fresh lemonade or tree ripened banana's.
