About the Property
3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home With Pool And Expansive Ocean Views Night Skies.
My home has 3 bedrooms,2 baths, a wonderful covered lanai with nothing between you and a 180 degree ocean vista, except our large, welcoming pool. This is the perfect pied a terre for exploring this magnificent island or simply lounging in the beauty of the house or on the lanai surrounded by tropical gardens. The trade winds come through most days maintaining soft breezes and perfect temperatures. Help yourself to the papayas and bananas growing on the grounds and experience Hawaii at its' best. As well as a spacious living area and tropical landscaping, the house comes complete with washer and dryer, bikes and a grill for local fish or grass fed beef you may choose for your dinner. Local farmer's markets abound in Naalehu just 2 miles away, Volcano Village, Hilo and Kona. Discovery Harbour is in the heart of the Kau district of the Big Island, making a name for itself with internationally acclaimed coffee. You can sample Kau coffee at the Coffee Mill about 10miles away, at the local 'Flyin Hawaiian' coffee truck in Naalehu featured in Sunset magazine and at the Orchid Farm just up the road from the house on south Point Rd. The beautiful Tibetan temple in Wood Valley is just beyond the Coffee Mill and is an inspiring retreat visited by the Dalai Lama; visitors are always welcomed by the monks who care for the grounds.
So if you are truly in search of a place to relax and recharge, you'll want to consider this true island getaway.

This is the perfect spot to rest, relax and explore the Big Island of Hawaii. If you're looking for a retreat from the crowded condo scene you'll find this area of Ka Lae (Southoint) is one of the last pristine, undeveloped sites left in the islands. In fact, it has the longest stretch of unbroken coastline in the Hawaiian islands. Located 50 miles from Kona or Hilo you can travel to both sides of the island to visit Volcano National Park or Hilo town or visit the white sand beaches near Kona. Closer to home, this wild and open area of the US known as the Kau region, boasts a black sand (Punalu'u) and Green sand (Mahana) beach. A hike to Mahana offers a wonderful hike past the southernmost point of the US. The evening sky is so clear and full of stars it will take your breath away. You can almost see the curvature of the earth from this vantage point!
Local farmers markets abound in Naalehu, Volcano Village and Hilo. A short 15 minute drive to Pahala provides an opportunity to visit the Coffee Mill. Coffee has replaced sugar as the key agricultural product here and Kau coffee has received numerous international awards quickly overshadowing the Kona coffee the island has been known for. You can watch the coffee processing and stroll the coffee orchards as well as enjoy free coffee and local macadamia nut tasting at the Mill. Even closer to home is the Orchid Farm on South Point Road and the 'Flyin Hawaiian' airstream coffee truck in Naalehu as featured last year in Sunset magazine. Both are local gathering places featuring fresh Kau coffee. You are free to stroll through the Orchid Farm at leisure and enjoy the magnificent orchids being cultivated. You'll also want to visit the Buddhist temple just above Pahala and the Coffee Mill. It's nestled in Wood Valley on the edge of the rain forest. The small temple is a brilliant jewel. The monks who tend the grounds welcome all who come by for a visit. It's a tranquil spot for quiet meditation or a peaceful stroll. The Dalai Lama has visited this spot and you'll find some of his work featured in their small gift shop.
You won't want to miss the Volcanoes National Park about 40miles away. This is an active volcano and you can see the steam vents, hike on old lava fields, explore old native hieroglyphics and walk through ancient lava tubes. Not to be missed! Of course opportunities to watch whales, swim with dolphins at Hookena and snorkel at any number of beaches are all terrific outings.
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: Hi, I purchased this home when it was being built after falling in love with the Big island. I grew up in San Francisco and now live in Grass Valley, CA. I visit the island as often as I can and love sharing it with people.
Why the Owner Chose Mark Twain (Naalehu, HI, USA):
I loved that this area was unspoiled; a rare thing in the islands. This home provides a natural, peaceful setting and a chance to get close to the native Hawaiian culture in a unique way as well as experience people from all over the world who have settled here. Talk to the locals; there is no end to the wonderful stories you will hear.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I fell in love with this spot because it provided me a respite from my hectic professional life and a sanctuary for my family. We've had many family gatherings here and plenty of room for our guests to relax day or night. Star gazing is amazing with no city lights to interfere with the experience. You'll have to try it at night and watch the full moon rise! There's nothing like it! The pool area and large lanai are welcoming both day and night. It's the perfect spot to watch the sunrise over the ocean and see the night sky emerge. The pool can be brisk in the winter months but is a lovely retreat after a hike or relaxing day.
