About Richard and Bev Johnson
We are a professional couple from Bellevue WA. My wife is a retired school psychologist and I am still employed as a technology architect for a Fortune 100 company. We visited all the major Hawaiian Islands before deciding on the Big Island and have no regrets. The sheer size of the island means you don't get 'Island Fever', and the less urban environment combined with a more relaxed pace of life make every visit here a joy.
Richard and Bev Johnson purchased this house in 2016
Why Richard and Bev Johnson chose Keaau
It was our plan from the beginning to spend 3-4 months a year here, and share the experience with others the rest of the time. Because of that, the house was built and furnished to the same level as of our mainland house. You can see that in the cabinetry, the quartz counters, the furnishings. We have a well with 1 micron filtration and UV sterilization instead of a catchment system, unlike most houses here, so water is never an issue. We like to shop the farmers markets and the world-famous Suisan fish market, as well as enjoy the occasional Hawaiian grass-fed steak, so we made sure we had a fully equipped kitchen for whatever cuisine you like.
What makes this house unique
With a 40-foot lap pool, either just cooling off, or getting in a little exercise is just steps away from the covered lanai. It's safe to say you'll spend a good deal of time here, because it also is a fully equipped outdoor kitchen with refrigerator, Weber Genesis grill with sidecar burner, and sink with hot and cold water. And although all the landscaping isn't fully grown in yet, we already have lemons and limes, and will eventually have bananas, oranges, figs, papayas, mangoes, and avocadoes. There's even a regulation Bocce-ball court for some competitive fun for all ages.
