Welcome to Ka hale ka ua lani - House of Heavenly Rains - 1.5 miles from the blue Pacific. This unique and charming remodeled 3-bedroom/2 bathroom, 1,566 square foot home is situated in a lush, one-acre botanical garden on a quiet cul-de-sac. Rare palms, tropical flowers, rolling lawns, and a natural lava tube add to the textured layers of the garden. A wild area fronts the property creating highly desirable privacy/seclusion and noise/dust abatement.

An exquisitely carved door leads to open concept living: spacious living room with a custom built-in entertainment niche; kitchen with Corian counters and sliding shelving/storage; a roomy dining area. All flow into the covered/screened lanai creating seamless entertainment spaces. The lanai overlooks a garden pond. When illuminated at night it creates a romantic and spectacular dining spot.

The spacious master bedroom is on the opposite side of the home, away from other bedrooms for greater privacy. At night, the ocean's calming roar and star-studded sky are mesmerizing! A newly added Asian-inspired master ensuite offers stunning views as you bathe in the Japanese furo or doorless shower. A beautiful antique chest with double sinks has plenty of storage.

Each bedroom boasts large closets, and a hallway linen closet also provides storage. The east side of the home has a garden shed and a storage room. A detached 8x12 shed was used as an office/man cave, and sewing room.

The home's many windows enhance light and flow of cooling trade winds throughout. A built in whole-house fan system also keeps the home cool by drawing hot air from the living space into the attic.

Sip your coffee and tea from one of three lanais, each providing a different lens of the property. The serene and natural beauty of this enchanting rain forest creates a peaceful and private setting reminiscent of Old Hawaii, a nostalgic echo of a gentler time - you are home!

Furnishing are negotiable.

Puna

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. The Puna coastline has been dramatically altered in recent years as Kilauea’s eruptions spilled 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. (Watch video.) 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.
