Property description

This unique 3 bedroom, 3 bath, two-story new luxury home is located on a secluded, end-of-the-road 5 acre property. There are 3050 sq. ft. under roof, including an 8ft wide lanai encircling the home from which mesmerizing ocean and pastoral views are evident from the North ranging East. Mountain views to the West. Interior highlights include redwood heart and cedar construction, exposed beam ceiling and skylight upstairs, exotic wood floors, all fine finishes including granite countertops in kitchen and all baths, marble sinks and tiled floor/walls in all baths, 2 king size beds, 1 queen bed. A short walk down a roped path will lead you to a private waterfall, around 10'-12' high, and natural pool, which has the feel of a grotto. Good hiking is available on the 5 acres, and there is a rushing stream that bounds the back of the property. You never have to leave the property to savor 'Old Hawaii': enjoy the captivating, panoramic views or hike the extensive and exhilarating paths around the property, which borders Hilo Forest Reserve. Special rate of $250/night for 7+ nights (monthly rate further discounted)!

Other Amenities

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Since first visiting Hawaii over 30 years ago, I had a dream of owning property on one of the islands, and this house represents the culmination of that dream. We are excited at the opportunity to share this wonderful place with others. I live in Friendswood, Texas, married with 2 sons and a daughter.

Why the Owner Chose Akaka Falls:
There's no doubt that the private waterfall on acreage is what appealed to us when shopping for Hawaiian properties. The seclusion at the end of the road is an added bonus, and who can deny the refreshing cool trade winds at around 1500 ft altitude! Of course, the pièce de résistance is the unbelievable view from the wraparound lanai.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Unlike most lots where a waterfall comprises part of the property boundary, this one is contained entirely on our property. Thus, no unexpected drop-ins by the neighbors! As a matter of fact, you'll probably not see another person once on the property. Water is by catchment and triple-filtered out of the sink/showers, or quadruple-filtered out of the fridge! On-demand systems means you never run out of hot water! Electricity consumed on the grid is balanced by solar panels, so we're almost completely green!
