About the owner: We stayed here on vacation and fell in love with this property 16 years ago. We decide to retire early and live off of the organic gardens here: we didn't know how to farm yet! The last 16 years has been so much fun and gone so fast; we actually believe we died and went to heaven because it has been so wonderful. . Rich is a retired electrical engineer/physicist with an interest in the Universe Story. Sandra is a retired teacher, holds a masters in transpersonal psychology, and is a master photographer (Google search on Sandra Lee Reha). Sadly, Rich passed away in 2010.
Why the Owner Chose Pāhala, HI, USA:
As stated, We fell in love with the property. That feeling only grows as a beautiful life here continues. No street lights or signs ensures the rural life is perpetuated.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
No pesticides have been used here for over 30 years, so the birds love everything, including free bananas, figs, other fruits, and we have hundreds of wild birds that return to our bamboo patches over night. There are no street lights in Wood Valley, and only a few houses, so at our 2400 foot elevation, the andromeda galaxy and the milky way are magnificent: better than I have ever seen anywhere. Children love to hand feed our tame goat, and some of our sheep herd. We have a harness for the goat to pull children around the property in our wagon. Last but not least is the spectacular Spring Water: bathe and drink the purest water on the planet, only a few minutes from its spring source with no storage or chlorination: only pure water.
