Off-Grid Opportunity on the Big Island

Living “off the grid” is a common goal for many who choose to move to Hawaii. Thanks to our abundant rainfall–much of which occurs at night–and our ample sunshine, living off-grid is definitely an option in many areas of the Big Island.

Eddie and Shannon Underwood of our Keauhou office recently listed a home in East Hawaii, not far from Pahoa, that could make adopting an off-grid Hawaii lifestyle a much easier transition for the right buyer.

This permitted home is situated on 10.18 acres and is completely off the grid.

Here, water is provided by a catchment system (the tank and liner are new) and power is solar with propane (the batteries for the solar system are new). A new on-demand hot water system has also been installed.

Recent upgrades include new cabinets and flooring in the kitchen as well as interior and exterior paint.

Living in Harmony with the Land

Sustainability requires a dedication to living in harmony with the land. Learning to grow food that is suited to the micro-climate where you are located can be a significant challenge for off-grid living and self-sufficiency. This property offers a giant leap in the right direction for anyone seeking to make the shift toward a sustainable lifestyle. With approximately 300 macadamia nut trees and an acre of white pineapple, plus banana, tangerine, lemon and lime trees already established, the new owner of this property will have a head start in producing their own food.  And, there is plenty of room for animals.
