About Diane Fournier
I was born and raised a San Francisco girl but at the height of the 60's started traveling which led to a nomadic lifestyle for many years . In the 80's I went north and rooted in Alaska. There I met my future husband to be, Phil. Phil is from Indiana and taught in the alternative public school in Anchorage. I opened up a Holistic Health Center which catered to clients seeking alternative health care. We lived there for 17 years before deciding we wanted to retire in warmth and fresh air. Hawaii was perfect for us because Hilo offered the pace and friendliness that Alaska had for us. We 1st moved to Kehena Beach in lower Puna closer to the lava action. There we had a vacation rental for 15 years and found that we really liked interacting with the guests that came to visit. Many guests became friends and quite a few of them over the years moved to Hawaii themselves. We recently moved in 2014 to Hilo into our home that was a vacation rental for 6 years. 2 years ago we acquired the neighboring land and duplexes which were all part of a large homestead. Instead of long term rentals we decided Hilo could use some more short term vacation rentals. We can start meeting our happy vacationers again. Phil use to teach Hawaiian Studies courses and has written a book, "A Concise History of the Hawaiian Islands", and would be happy to answer any questions about the islands history that you might have.
Diane Fournier purchased this House in 2013
Why Diane Fournier chose Hilo
The first time we drove up Amauulu Rd. quite a few years ago , it was like we couldn't believe how country it felt yet we were near downtown. A few years later, a realtor friend showed us a house on this street that she thought we would like even though we were only looking for land. Well, that did it. We fell in love with the area, the pastureland behind us and orchards across the street with the river 300 yards away. Sort of wild but in the city. The house itself was perfect so no need to build one and it was fairly new. We bought it the next day. Then, 2 years ago, the neighboring piece of land along our driveway became available and it had 2 longtime duplexes on it. We acquired that to protect our assets. These duplexes are perfect for the vacationing couple who want quiet beauty yet convenience to walking into town to dine at night if they desire. It doesn't get much better. You also have the opportunity to pick fresh fruit from our many fruit trees on the 1+ acre lot. Depending on the time of year you can choose from Lychee, Mango, Orange, Tangerine, Longon, Avocado, Tangelo, Papaya, Yabotacaba, and Pineapple.
