Property description

Rejoice in Nature, relax your mind and rejuvenate your soul at this secluded private cottage on a park-like estate at the 2400 foot level of Mauna Kea in Hamakua. Thoughtful and artistic decoration add to the pastoral feel of this solar powered two story dwelling with carport and covered lanai. A galley kitchen with cook top and refrigeration will allow on site meal preparation. The wood burning stove provides warmth on cool evenings and the queen bed upstairs and foldout full size futon sofa downstairs encourage peaceful rest. Wireless high speed internet access allows you to connect with your mobile devices to entertainment and communication options. The Hamakua district offers easy access to the beaches of the Kohala coast, a glimpse into plantation era life in Honoka'a town and Laupahoehoe, hiking and exploration in Waipio valley, shopping and cinema in Hilo and enjoyment of the open vistas not available to many in the Hawaiian islands.


We, as your hosts, are willing to share our knowledge of photo-voltaic power (all structures on the property are off-grid) and provide you with tours of our working art studio (raku ceramics and jewelry are produced here and marketed in several galleries in the state) gardens and monumental lily pond. As decades-long residents of the Big Island, we are happy to share our love of this land and its people and provide guidance for touring.

The Hamakua district is an historically agricultural and ranching area with plantation era towns, Buddhist temples, gift shops, cinema and vistas of the Pacific ocean and Mauna Kea, topped with observatories. Waipio Valley, with its spectacular overlook, black sand beach and taro ponds is a 13 mile drive away. Access to the valley is either on foot or via 4 WD vehicle (tour vans are available). Hiking beyond the valley along the coastline is challenging but visually rewarding. The Hawaiian Vanilla Company is 1 mile hike or drive away, can provide ecotours and has a gift shop. Waimea (Kamuela) is 20 miles away, nestled against the Kohala mountains and is the headquarters of Parker Ranch. The beaches of Kohala (Spencer beach, Hapuna beach and the resorts of Mauna Kea and Hapuna) are 32 miles by car. Laupahoehoe point, 20 miles by car, is a spectacular setting for a picnic at sea level and the former site of Laupahoehoe school where many lives were lost in the tsunami of 1946.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: We hail from the Midwest and Pacific Northwest, have called Hawaii home for 34 years and chose this area of the Big Island for its peaceful natural beauty. Residing on the same property, but out of sight of the vacation cottage allows us to provide privacy yet permits immediate response to any questions or problems that may arise from visitors. Having a long experience with hosting friends and family prompted us to offer our home to those who desire a more personal look at life in Hawaii than a hotel could provide.

Why the Owner Chose Paauilo, HI, USA:
Paauilo mauka drew our interest and ignited our passion for its cool upcountry climate, vistas of Mauna Kea and rolling pastureland. A 'green' mentality and sensitivity to Nature is fostered by this off-the-grid area.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Since we are working artists and avid gardeners, we enjoy sharing our knowledge of the land and our enthusiasm for raku-fired ceramics. The art studio which is housed in a former horse barn on the property is a space to which we welcome visitors.
