About the Property

Designer home with thatched outdoor kitchen and amazing views to enjoy!

Executive 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom, home with an exceptionally well-appointed kitchen featuring a French La Canche Range, Le Creuset pots and pans, chefs knives and plenty of glassware and crockery. The open plan with a hand-crafted monkey-pod bar is ideal for entertaining family and friends while cooking a gourmet meal.
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 second bedroom also has the view over the lanai towards Mauna Kea and a bathroom just steps away across the hall.
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!

We are located only 15 minutes from some of the most pristine beaches on the island, Hapuna Beach and Wailea Bay, near Puako. Waimea is known for it's fabulous farmer’s markets where the freshest vegetables can be found on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.

In addition, hikes, and fabulous beaches are within easy driving distance. Kona and Hilo are both an hour’s drive away and the entrance on Saddle Road for the 'Mauna Kea Summit' is 30 minutes away. A 20 minute drive brings you to Honokaa Town leading you to Waipio Valley, and 45 minutes away is Pololu Valley in Hawi. From Hilo it's only 26 more miles to Volcano National Park with the active volcano.

The town of Waimea has plenty to offer with its art galleries, boutiques, Parker Ranch, spas, golf on the coast, playgrounds, astronomy at the KECK observatory, the Anna Ranch Museum, and a great selection of local restaurants. As stated by one restaurant critic '

This is also a perfect location for mountain bikers, triathlon trainers, and any type of sports or science enthusiast.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: As a professional forester and nurseryman with a doctorate in Geography, I love the Big Island for it's amazing diversity. Originally from South Africa, I came to Hawaii in 1996 from Alaska (where I worked for the Forest Service) and never left. I have been responsible for planting over 10 million trees on the island!

Why the Owner Chose Waimea, Hawaii County, HI, USA:
The home offers quiet luxury and seclusion with very easy access to restaurants, beaches, golf and outdoor activities. A gourmet kitchen as well as an outdoor entertainment area in a unique 'African Hut' make it an ideal family vacation home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is styled after an African lodge, with custom hand-made furniture from locally sourced woods with amazing attention to detail throughout. Sunsets will provide a great jacuzzi experience! The home is ideal for a 'foodie' with a fabulous kitchen on an open-plan bar and living room for entertaining. A fun movie room is ideal for teenagers!
