About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)
From the large, sweeping lanai (deck), Maui can be seen in the distance across the Pacific. The View House is a lovingly renovated and updated sugar plantation house, retaining the feel of a bygone era. Superbly crafted and furnished with tropical bamboo and teak furniture, it offers an elegant and light-filled space.
All water running into the house comes from deep Island aquifers and is double-filtered and pure. Floors are hardwood and tile. The house features a lovely bathroom with a soaking tub, a large, fully-equipped kitchen with Mexican counter tops, a master bedroom with a queen bed and ocean view, a small bedroom with twin beds and garden view, and a fold-out queen bed in the living room.
For even deeper relaxation, guests at the View House have exclusive use of our spa. Our infrared sauna, hot tub, and cold tub sit on totally private decks, surrounded by lime and moringa trees. Guests will find an additional shower room and water closet in the adjoining tiled breezeway.
The View House is our only rental. We are a small, private operation and offer a serene, safe, exceptionally clean environment in “old Hawaii,” off the beaten track. We are 4 miles from spectacular Waipio Valley and 4 miles from a historic small “sugar town” with all amenities. We are an hour from Kona and an hour from Hilo, making both sides of the Island accessible. The most common feedback we get is that the home and property are more beautiful than the photos.
If you are coming to the Big Island in search of beauty, peace, serenity, relaxation, and rejuvenation, you have found what you are looking for! Our part of the island still expresses traditional Hawaiian “Aloha,” and the View House is the culmination of your quest.

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: My wife, Connie, and I are both Naturopathic Physicians and maintain a small, part-time office on the property. We see patients and tend the organic orchards and gardens. Our dear friends, Marcus and Shigeko Bachino, work with us in providing unobtrusive support, when needed. It is a blessing to live in this special place and be so closely in touch with the land. We welcome all visitors with warm aloha and invite them to partake in the healing, restorative energies that are so tangible everywhere on the property.
Why the Owner Chose Honokaa, HI, USA:
We looked for land to purchase in Hawaii for more than 10 years before we found this little piece of paradise. When we bought it, it had two aging plantation houses in need of extreme TLC. Our close friends thought we were nuts. Many years later, even Hawaii-born visitors marvel at the beauty and magic that are so tangible everywhere on the property. Special places with benches invite visitors to stop and breathe in the beauty. Fruit tree loaded with their bounty are perfect for grazing.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Imagine that you wake up in the morning to the songs of tropical birds. The sunrise is filtering through the palms, jacaranda and orchid trees, creating shadow patterns on the walls of your bedroom. The soft, gentle rain that fell through part of the night created a soothing cadence on the metal roof of your lovely quarters. You have slept well. Sliding open the large glass door, you step from your bedroom out onto the lanai, take a deep breath of pure ocean air, do a few stretches and gaze out over the deep blues of the Pacific Ocean. The trade winds are light. It is a sparkling clear day. Across the channel, Maui is shrouded in a slight mist. Donning a sarong, you walk down the lanai steps into the orchard to collect your fruit salad. A couple of ripe papayas, a passion fruit or two and a starfruit tumble into your harvest basket. A hand of tasty apple bananas awaits you on the kitchen counter. A huge, round butter avocado and a couple of Tahitian limes complete your breakfast. What to do after breakfast? Should you pack a picnic lunch and hike 40 minutes through the miles of preserve bordering the estate to the spectacular coastal views from the cliffs overlooking the ocean? Perhaps a beach trip to the legendary Waipio Valley, just four miles away? Or a 5-minute trip into town to browse the galleries and have a cup of tea? There are so many things to see and do on the island, like visiting the volcano, driving up to the Mauna Kea observatories, exploring the lush drive to Hilo. Maybe you'll just lie in the hammock for a while and think about it. Or lounge in the spa. After all, it is a gorgeous day, and you are here to relax and rejuvenate.
