Property description

Enjoy commanding ocean views from the retired Sea Captain's Hill top perch overlooking Kohala and Kona Coastlines. Located in the famed Hub of Parker Ranch the town Kamuela or Waimea is the beloved central point in the verdant cattle country rich in Island history. On the fringe of the hillside this Chateau sits near the top of the hill featuring an expansive deck which facilitates indoor outdoor living. While very private with mature landscaping the home adeptly captures stunning sunsets, ocean views and mountain vistas to include Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, and Hualalai. Stargazing is Prime on a clear night.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Captain Jay Chavez pictured off the Island of Kauai on the Pride of Aloha. Jay and Diane are long time residents of the Big Island and have raised two Sons in Waimea. The Big Island is a great place to enjoy the outdoors.

Why the Owner Chose Waimea, Hawaii County, HI, USA:
The peaceful location in the center of town offers so many advantages. The location is perfect for long walks, convenience to shops and restaurants and has a relaxing vibe.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Waimea has a lot of micro climates and the dry side of Waimea is often desired. It frequently rains daily which keeps the hillsides green but there is a magical quality about watching the sky at night when the sun sets. The view is why we fell in love with this unique home.
