On the beautiful Hamakua Coast, yet only 5 minutes from downtown Hilo and its various restaurants, shops and Farmers' Market, but a world away on a lush river gorge in a quiet village with its own beach and scenic drive and the island's finest botanical gardens. Near Honolii, excellent surf beach, accessible en route to Hilo by car, our bicycles (including one built for two!) or even a pleasant walk.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: We're a two dad family with two beautiful daughters who try to spend our summers on Hawaii and dream of the day we can live there full-time.
Why the Owner Chose Papaikou, HI, USA:
We wanted a well-built home, with gorgeous yard and lots of wood and space, that we could share with family and friends from around the world, as well as occasional guests who would like to enjoy our little slice of paradise! We loved the location and setting--a perfect balance of quiet, lush surroundings, yet a beautiful short drive to town.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
It has a gorgeous rural location on the stream and waterfall, yet so very close to town and its conveniences. That we can bike or walk to beaches is a plus as well!
