Property description

Our 'Suite in a modern Hawaii house,' with an incredible view of South Point' is located on a non-certified sustainable organic farm.

'The Terraces' is the life long dream of founder, Stacey Richards. It was created to provide an environment for people to learn about their health and nutrition, as well as provide a venue for community activities.

In Hawaii we have a word: 'Ohana'. Now, the literal meaning of Ohana is family. but the way it is often used is to describe a guest house or spare bedroom, because that is where your Ohana would stay. So at The Terraces we try to provide both.

A place to rest your head and a place where you feel at home. The Terraces is a place where you are treated as Ohana. We are glad to have you on the island, and believe that most businesses try to color your Hawaii experience one way or another. The point of our farm, is that we don't. Hawaii is a beautiful place. Where you can have fun all day, and always come back to our Ohana and yours.

'The Terraces' is a educational and demonstration sustainable farm. Located on the south side of Hawaii's Big Island. We specialize in every thing from fresh food, to the Hawaii experience. But every thing we do here we do with love, a smile, and the Aloha spirit.

The Terraces' motto is, 'where small things matter, choose wisely.' Our mission is to provide an environment in paradise, where you choose your vacation.

We have every thing from vegetables and meals, to Big Island knowledge. But that is far from the end product. Here we are trying to make a place, a home, and a foundation for the Hawaii experience YOU want.

We have good cell phone service, and parking and we can tell you about many of the 'secret spots' in Hawaii ... but we do not have cable TV.

We have plenty of fresh air and a 2980 foot elevation that makes air conditioning or heating obsolete. At night you can look out and on a clear night, see all the stars in the Milky Way that you miss in more 'civilized' locations.

The suite has a large bedroom, large living room and bathroom.

Infant and child beds, as well as floor mats are available. Teens and older children are welcome to sleep in our son's tree house, as he and his friends did many, many, nights.

Preparing a light breakfast and lunch is fine, preparation of evening meals may, however, present a problem.

We are neither a B&B nor a restaurant so we can not serve meals and charge for them. However, sit-down dinners are important to us. We welcome our guests, as friends, to eat with our family and contribute what they will toward the cost of food and preparation as a donation ... we have no hard and fast rules, we just want to keep it revenue neutral. We solicit your preferences and see meals as enjoyable social occasions, just let us know when you want join us and we will try to accommodate you, or if you need to have any box lunches made for your excursions.

We find that some guests want to 'move in' and be part of the local community and even, on occasion, the family ... that's fine, others want an efficient and comfortable base to operate from on their vacation with a minimum of interaction, we respect and honor that approach too.

The Hawaiian Ocean View Estates development consists of 10,697 1-acre, agricultural, lots north of the Hawaii Belt Road in the western part of the District of Ka'u. The terrain varies from rugged lava fields to ohi'a trees and other vegetation. Elevation ranges from about 1,500 ft (460 m) up to the 5,000-foot (1,500 m) level.

Initial sales began in the late 1950s. The original developer of HOVE was the Crawford Oil Company. Later, other subdivisions were put in place down-slope of HOVE and the Hawaii Belt Road. In the early 1980s a service station and a hardware store were built. In January 2004, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park purchased the nearby property previously known as Kahuku Ranch.

In 1989 the Ocean View Town Center was developed and the Ocean View Road Maintenance Corporation began an extensive rebuilding program of the roads. Shortly thereafter the Ocean View Development Corporation started a new market which included a laundromat and restaurant. Ocean View now has three shopping centers. There are now three gas stations, three grocery stores, a hardware store and and four restaurants.

Ocean View has a post office with the ZIP code of 96737.

There are Buses twice daily to Kona and Hilo except on Sunday, schedules may be found by searching for 'Heleon bus Hawaii'
