This property is immensely special to us, and we are for the first time offering it as a rental.
Our abode sits perched atop 1,000-foot cliffs leading to the historic Waipio Valley, or “Valley Of the Kings,” where many of the ancient Hawaiian ali'i (kings) once resided. This is a very sacred place steeped in Hawaiian history. The stunningly beautiful Waipio Valley is verdant and lush, teeming with waterfalls, fishponds, hiking trails and rivers that lead to a pristine mile-long black sand beach.
The main house is centered on one acre of beautifully landscaped undulating clifftop land. The interior is fully furnished with modern dressings, claiming 3,400 square feet of interior space, with large glass doors opening up onto 1,400 square feet of warm, spacious outdoor living area (wonderful for yoga, sunning, relaxing, or entertaining).
The home was renovated in 2010, with updated appliances and cabinetry, new washer/drier, granite countertops, and thoughtful lighting throughout.
Its modern open floor plan brings the ocean and the tropics to you with its spectacular views, whether you're in the kitchen, dining area, living room or bedrooms. We have designed for the ultimate indoor-outdoor living experience with large glass doors opening onto a warm spacious hardwood deck and yard, offering views of the pacific ocean, the coastline cliffs of Waipio Valley, and our neighboring Island of Maui. Sleeping quarters include three (3) spacious high-ceiling bedrooms and two-and-half (2.5) airy bathrooms.
In addition to the two tastefully appointed queen-size guest suites downstairs (each with walk-in closet, and french doors opening onto the private guest lanai), the second-floor master suite features a king-size bed, lounge area, and workspace/desk area which overlooks the yard and ocean. The master bath houses a jacuzzi tub (also overlooking the ocean, yard, and cliffsides), his and her vanities, and a walk-in shower.
The kitchen is a chef's dream. It is spacious and open, with infinity views through the house to the ocean, ideal for entertaining and cooking at the same time, with cozy bar seating. There is ample granite counter space to prep meals with friends and family. With a beautiful gas range and oven, dishwasher, appliances, and kitchenware, you will be fully prepared to cook any meal.
The expansive 1,400 square feet of outdoor living area includes a 6-person hot tub, outdoor lanai with heated shower, outdoor lounges and tables, and propane grill (BBQ). The back yard bestows 180-degree ocean views, offering frequent humpback whale sightings in the winter and breathtaking rainbows during any season.
The remainder of the property is carefully landscaped with numerous native flora, and a variety of fruit trees (starfruit, tangelo, papaya, banana, lemon, lime). The long driveway leading down to the front of the house offers seclusion, insulation, and privacy. There is no central air conditioning or heating, as the climate here is never too hot nor too cold. At night, the sounds of the tropics will lull you to sleep.
The closest small town, Honoka'a (small fresh food grocer, movie theatre, emergency room, individually-owned restaurants and shops, etc) is 9 miles up the road, and the larger town of Waimea (small airport, hardware store, larger grocer and hospital) is a 30-minute drive. The larger towns of Hilo and Kona, each with international airports, are both approximately one hour away.
You will need to rent a car while visiting the Big Island. If you wish to access the road down to Waipio Valley, it is restricted to 4-wheel drive vehicles only. If you are physically fit and like to hike and walk, the journey by foot is a great option.
Please note, 30-day minimum stays are the current aim, but case-by-case exceptions may be made for stays of 10 days or more based on availability.
Monthly rate is $4200/month, plus Hawaii state taxes. Included in rent will be water, electricity, cable, DSL/wireless internet, landline, and lawn maintenance. There is also a Verizon repeater to amplify the mobile signal.
First and last month's rent, $250 cleaning fee, and $4000 security deposit will be due at lease signing.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Trips into the Waipio Valley (by car it's 4WD only, if you hike it's a steep walk back up!), will be one of the most beautiful experiences of your trip to HI. Secluded, untainted, and majestic are only the first words that come to mind. For the more adventurous and athletic, a one-day hike into Waimanu Valley (and subsequent camping) will unfurl sight that very few people will witness for themselves. See for yourself.
The Hamakua Coast, by itself, is astounding. The land, ocean, and people that surround it only add to its majestic qualities.
About the owner: I am an intrepid traveler who enjoys broadening my horizons via exploration of lands both foreign and domestic...cultural immersion being the holy grail :)
