Location

Car: Necessary

This home is located a 35-minute drive south from the town of Hilo, on the east side of the island. This area is not known for its beaches; instead, it is known for its rugged coastline, with the waves crashing onto the lava cliffs. This is also the lush side of the island, and there are several waterfalls to visit, including Akaka Falls and Rainbow Falls. The house is located approximately 10 minutes from the funky town of Pahoa, where tie-die attire is the norm. There is an organic fruit stand and a well-stocked grocery store located there, along with some good restaurants.

This side of the island is not touristy, but more suited for those who are looking for a quiet retreat or the more adventurous. There are no close beaches; to access those, you must travel up over the volcano and down into the Kailua-Kona area, an approximate two- to three-hour drive. It is, however, located fairly close (half-hour drive) to the Mauna Kea volcano, where there is hiking and sightseeing, and the Isaac Hale State Beach (15-minute drive), where you can catch a boat ride to view the lava entering into the sea. There are several botanical gardens close by and a macadamia farm to tour. University of Hawaii at Hilo is also close. The big cruise ships stop in Hilo Bay, and there are many small and unique shops, as well as good dining, a Farmers Market on Sunday and Wednesday and the Tsunami museum.

Year Purchased: 2012

Why Hawaiian Beaches, HI, USA:
I have been visiting the various Islands since my early twenties and have always dreamed of retiring in Hawaii. I recently made the decision to make my retirement dream a reality and purchased a home on Hawaii Island, so that I can come out several times a year until I can move here permanently. I picked the area of Pahoa, in the Puna District as it is centrally located with hiking at Volcano National Park, swim in geo thermal tide pools, explore Hilo the 'Big Little City' with Farmers market, small shops with lots of unique treasures, or walk the Liliuokalani Gardens all within 30 minutes from the house. Just 10 minutes away is the funky town of Pahoa (you will think you warped back to the 60s) along with a Market, a Organic Fruit Stand, to buy items you forgot to buy in Hilo.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Just a few things I love about this house, it is located in a quiet residential neighborhood of Hawaiian Shores - 2 blocks from the ocean. Enjoy the openness of rooms with all the windows, relax and sit out on the Lanai's (the house has 2 lanai's upstairs and one downstairs off 2 of the bedrooms) to enjoy watching a rainbow after a rain shower, eat your lunch or dinner or just read a book. The feeling of privacy with all the individual bedrooms each having their own bathroom and TV. Take your beach chairs to the cliffs and watch the waves crash against the Pali (Cliffs). Sometimes you even dolphins or whales. Listen to the coqui frogs at night to lull you to sleep
