About the Property
Experience Country Living, Hawaiian Style! Farm animals, Orchards, Adventure
Enjoy the ideal location on the beautiful Hamakua Coast, the green side of the Big Island of Hawaii, on our own piece of Paradise. With the best views of the Ocean & Mauna Kea mountain from the lanai. The very best views, tho are from your private balcony above the rushing waters of the Makea Stream. We call it a river, as it is 30-50 feet wide, in the wading and swimming holes, below the waterfalls (of course). You could spend your whole vacation here, swimming, hiking, and resting or adventuring.
On six acres of farm land, we have a little working/petting farm; with 2 horses, Thunder and Electra, the miniature horse. 7 goats, 2 barn cats and several chickens and their eggs to gather.
We also have two dogs, old Molly, who will bark at you, then remember you must be old friends, and young Buddy, a Belgian Shepherd pup. And, of course, our two granddaughters who spend occasional weekends with grandma and grandpa; they should be listed with farm animals, I recon.
Feel free to collect fruit, in season from our orchard of lychee, mango, avocado, star fruit, bananas and many others including the best melt in your mouth white pineapple ever to be imagined! We have so many, there is are usually a few ripe at all times.
The bedroom has a brass queen size bed, ample storage and closet. Your bathroom has shower and washer and dryer. The main room has a futon, satellite TV, and a kitchenette, with all new refrigerator, coffee pot, blender, juicer, microwave, hot plate and convection toaster/oven. I have dishes, coffee, tea, paper towels, rice (and a small rice cooker) some spices and other things to get you started.
We are located 11 miles north of Hilo, at the end of the "Scenic Route" where the botanical gardens, and breathtaking Onemea Bay are; and north of Honoli'i beach and surf spot, where Puff the Magic Dragon hangs out. Around us are acres of corn and purple potato fields. With nice side roads for peaceful and scenic walks, you can check out the cliffs and bays of the ocean, right in front of us; as ocean front is public land. Our own road is the back road to the scenic and quaint town of Honomu, with artsty gift stores, ice cream and bakery shops. You will want to drive around to go thru Honomu, and up to Akaka Falls, a brisk hike up and down stairs to a stunning waterfall.

We are out in Hawaiian country, the beauty of the ocean, mountain, and your own river are the main attraction. We are 3 miles from the botanical garden, on the scenic route, on the spectacular Onemea Bay. Which we can guide to the walking path, directly to the ocean in the bay. There are ziplines, waterfalls, and beach parks within miles; and more all over the island.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: After "retiring" to Hawaii over ten years ago, from construction and teaching, in Oregon, Michigan, Texas, Florida, Calif, etc.. we have finally (mostly) completed our dream home in our own piece of paradise. We enjoy working outside on the property, in the orchard, trees, and the river; tending to our dogs and barn pets, and spending time with our granddaughters, and their mom. Tim enjoys some horseshoes in the front yard, occasionally, and playing in the state tournaments in Hilo. He is always building, pruning, mowing and then admiring his views. Karen keeps busy with flowers, animals, and my studio/workshop under the house; where I have set up my little stations, for potting, painting, woodwork repairs, stained glass, and pottery, which we fire in the big gas kiln.
Why the Owner Chose Pepeekeo, HI, USA:
When we first came to Hawaii we drove around the island, saw a FOR SALE sign along the highway and drove around the area. We noticed a swimming hole in the stream from Old Railroad Way, and made our way through the 10' tall cane grass to the stream, and said, "This is it!!!" 'IT' was already SOLD, and in escrow, but Karen kept calling the realtor until he said, "Good News Mr & Mrs Greene! Bring the money today!" So, we like to say, "God lead us here". That was 2 weeks after we had arrived, over 10 years ago. We bought another house, in Hawaiian Acres which we remodeled and had 2 vacation rental rooms, under the name "Country Gardens on the Old Volcano Trail". We decided to sell that house so we could put our time into our dream property... So, Tim built a hut, 30' above the lower swimming hole, and there we lived for over a year as he built the house, and Karen babysat our baby granddaughter...fun times, fun times. We have had many friends and family visit, and now we are ready to add you to our friend (or maybe even family) list.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Its all about the river. We love the river, it is cool under the African tulip trees, and the rush of water splashing over and around the rocks takes you to another world. There is no noise above the rush of the river. A dam, built during sugar cane farming times, widens the stream, and causes it to divide in many directions. Tim planned the guest suite to be right above that view. One can sit on the balcony for hours watching and being buried in the sound and sights of the cascading water. (Or, one (like Tim) can even fall asleep on the balcony futon) People drive here to go for walks through our area, down to the ocean, and up to Honomu, the town time forgot, on the way to Akaka Falls, and an amazing Zip-Line experience. They will stop on their walk to take pictures of our flowers, and animals and the view of the ocean from the road. We feel exceptionally blessed. And so will you!
