Beautiful newly built custom home located on 3rd St in quiet Mauna Loa Estates, nestled away from the road on a beautiful 1/2 acre lot.

This custom designed home features 1 large bedroom + sleeping loft with queen bed and 1 full bathroom. Bedroom has large closet with a desk nook. Sleeping loft has a solid mahogany ladder for access and extra enclosed storage space. Shed roof provides 12' ceilings at front of home and 8' at rear with much of the interior walls/ceilings being T&G knotty pine. Home comes fully furnished and new owner could keep as rental or move in at end of lease. The lot is 100' wide by 200' deep for a 1/2 acre of lush forest that has been selectively cleared leaving the majority of the Ohia trees and Hapu'u ferns intact.

The property was designed with the foresight to allow for an additional structure. Septic was designed for 3 bedrooms, which means an additional 2 bedroom structure could be built. The extra long driveway would provide access to a second structure, and a pre-dug plumbing trench means many of the most difficult steps are already taken care of.

Don't pass up this gem!

Leased through December 15.

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.
