Year Purchased: 2005
About: Love for NATURE & Gardening and a need to be near the sea are the reasons we became stewards of this property. We are in our 50-60's, actively involved in both Puna and San Francisco communities, and hoping to spend more time in Puna as we age.
Why Pahoa, HI, USA:
We have been vacationing in Puna, Hawaii for over eleven years renting a friend's home. After becoming attached to the native culture, tropical landscape, and outdoor activities, we decided to build our own home. We designed and constructed the cottage based on our eleven years of vacation living, culling features from the many homes we saw in the area and tailoring them to our Hawaiian lifestyle pursuit of comfortable simplicity.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Steep terrain reveals spectacular 170 degree view of the Pacific ocean and exposes the property to gentle trade winds. Proximity of rain forest ensures a symphony of night sounds and a remote, jungle feel at your doorstep. All wood construction (cedar walls and roof, eucalyptus floors, Ipe deck) is rare in the tropics. You'll enjoy the woody fragrance.
