Better than new with mature landscaping! Located just one block from the ocean where long strolls and whale watching are included at no charge, this beautiful property has been crafted and upgraded to be one with the "ocean close" setting. The large kitchen is highly upgraded and centrally located so that it's handy to the over-sized lanai and all that happens in the great room area. With solid granite counters and stainless appliances (brand new dishwasher), the kitchen boasts custom cabinets with an appliance garage, spice drawers and tons of storage. Happy chef, happy guests! The split floor plan and huge lanai maximize space and help the home live larger than it is. Who needs a "McMansion" when you can relax on a private lanai and joy ocean breezes! With a walk-in closet and snazzy master bath, the master bedroom spans most one side of the home. Two additional bedrooms are more than an afterthought. They both have their own set of upgrades along with exterior access just off an area that has been reserved for a future pool. In fact, the home is basically pool ready. Like the idea of minimal electric bills? The pre-paid leased system will minimize electric bills (approx $30/month) with zero owner maintenance responsibility. Need a workshop space? The garage area is over 700 ft and has 2 bay doors along with one open end creating a breezy space that includes 50 amp 220 service! Small touches such as yard lights switched from the master, motion sensor lights on the garage (allows for transit to garage at night), an expandable sprinkler system and mature tropical landscaping (including not only fruit trees but numerous exotic palms and plantings) truly makes this home a great value and much, much better than buying new construction!

The fastest growing district in Hawaii, enigmatic Puna is often said to be where the Volcano goddess Pele, of Hawaiian legend, is active in her workshop. Kilauea’s ongoing eruption continues to expand Puna's coastline, spilling layer upon layer of lava into the ocean.

Sometimes called "the last Hawaiian frontier," Puna real estate is considered to be the most affordable in the state. Several large subdivisions in the district were originally developed with minimal infrastructure, so those who thrive in rural East Hawaii quickly learn the importance of living in harmony with the land and weather patterns. Many residents even opt for off-grid living. A stop at the Sunday Maku'u Farmers Market is a great way to see first-hand the community commitment to promoting local food and the local economy.

Crossing into Puna from South Hilo, Keaau is the first commercial center you encounter. Both Keaau and agriculturally fertile Kurtistown are accessed from Highway 11. Orchidland Estates and Hawaiian Paradise Park are the first large rural subdivisions along Highway 130, which branches off to the southeast from Highway 11. Most properties in these subdivisions are in rainwater catchment water areas and many are on unpaved roads. 

Puna Makai (makai means “toward the sea”) includes the easternmost point on the Big Island where you will find the Kapoho Kumakahi Lighthouse, the subdivisions of Hawaiian Beaches and Hawaiian Shores, the town of Pahoa and the rugged coastal areas beyond. Pahoa, the eclectic commercial hub of Puna Makai, is a gathering place for rural East Hawaii residents and home to several restaurants, shops, Malama Market and the Pahoa Skatepark. 

Higher in elevation is the town of Mountain View and the subdivisions of Hawaiian Acres, Fern Acres, Fern Forest and Eden Roc. These communities comprise Puna Mauka (mauka means “toward the mountain”). While parts of Kurtistown and Mountain View are agriculturally rich areas where deep soil can be found, the subdivisions to the left of Highway 11 sit atop old lava flows. Residents will tell you that the abundant rainfall of this area is a blessing and a challenge. Maintaining a property here takes dedication--and a good arsenal of lawn-care tools.

Surrounded by lush rainforest filled with native trees and green hapu’u ferns, Volcano, at approximately 4,000 ft above sea level, has a very different ecology and climate than coastal Puna. Temperatures can drop dramatically at night so many homes at this elevation are built with fireplaces or cozy wood-stoves. Often, Volcano homes are vacation escapes for owners who live on the mainland or on urban Oahu. There is a thriving Bed and Breakfast economy here, attracting tourists visiting the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Ohia Estates and Mauna Loa Estates are subdivisions located just across the highway from nearby Volcano Village, where Big Island residents and visitors alike gather at Village restaurants or the Sunday morning Cooper Center Farmers Market.
