About the Property
Designer home with thatched outdoor kitchen and amazing views to enjoy!
Alternatively, simply enjoy the beautiful views of Mauna Kea and the world-renowned telescopes from the lanai or the Jacuzzi and then take advantage of a range of dining options just five minutes away in the town of Waimea. Very quiet and romantic and centrally located not only for the beautiful country town of Waimea, but also the Hamakua coast with charming Honokaa leading to spectacular Waipio Valley. Also, the home has easy access to beautiful white-sand beaches, including Hapuna, Mauna Kea, Spencer Beach Park to name just a few. Maps and guidebooks are provided.
The home has a wonderful master bedroom with stunning views and a well-appointed en-suite bathroom.
The third bedroom and bathroom are at the other end of the house and features a small TV room and privacy from the other bedrooms. Ideal for another couple or for teenagers. This third bathroom is also the laundry room with large, efficient, front-loading LG washer and dryer.
For the teenagers or the whole family, the movie room is a great spot for an evening of entertainment, and the projector and sound-system offer a great alternative to a drive to the movie-theater!
The home features two televisions (a small one at the bar and a larger flat-screen in the TV room) and DirecTV cable. Unlocked wifi is also accessible throughout the home.
Everyone loves the thatched African hut for outdoor cooking and entertaining. The hut has a table that seats 6 and a gas BBQ, sink and fridge, sound system and lighting. It is really a fun spot and perfect for the fresh fish you picked up at Lau's Fish Market in Kawaihae, of some local range-fed beef.
All-in-all, this is a great house for a couple's romantic getaway, a family's base to explore the Big Island, or even a comfortable alternative for two or three couples to be out of the coastal heat, but close enough to world-class beaches, golf courses, and restaurants!
