Time To Live the Life You Imagined! Picture dining with friends and family on a lanai overlooking the Pacific. A soft warm trade-wind flickers the candlelight while you notice a surprisingly bright moon that reflects the whitecaps out to the horizon, rising from the sea. This oceanfront pearl of a house has been lovingly developed into a perfect package that sure to support your dream life! The house layout is design tested and features gorgeous finishes such as solid Brazilian wood and ceramic tile flooring, timbered ceilings and an open floor plan. The tongue and groove ceilings and massive beams on both main living floors create a perfect contrast to the turquoise Pacific beyond but it’s the ten-foot-wide lanai spanning the ocean side of the home that will capture your heart in a big way! The home's lower level with a great patio space, full bath and two car garage provides just the spot for winter whale watching or year-round dolphin pods passing. The second level great room has 180 degree views from the dining area, chef's kitchen, and 2 bedrooms located located on opposite sides of the home for privacy. The chef's kitchen includes custom cabinetry complimented by high end solid granite counters, breakfast bar (with built-in wine cooler) and newer stainless appliances. A wide curved stairway leads to the upper level loft with ocean views in every direction. The full bath and closet make this generous space ready for many uses; alternative master bedroom, guest bedroom, sitting room, yoga area, office, media room or the grandkids ”dorm”. You may come to realize that there are no better oceanfront values in the State and this unique home combines both value and quality. With approximately ½ acre hugging the bay, this inspirational home is serviced by a private fresh water well. It’s an exquisite package offering the perfect opportunity to enjoy the hard work and expense the original owners have put into creating this amazing oceanfront retreat.

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.
