This is how life should be in a community near the ocean; surrounded by ever changing nature while nestled on your half acre lot in the middle of a fruit orchard! Built up, to capture the views and the prevailing trade winds, this wood and glass cottage is a perfect full time residence or weekend getaway. You are a short distance to the Village of Kalapana for supplies or restaurants and you will definitely want to participate in the Farmer's Market, music and festivities on Wednesday evening at Uncle Robert's! An easy hike will take you to the new black sand beach at the ocean where you can plant a coconut tree.

Built by an artistic woodworker, you will appreciate the Mahagony wood floors, Koa counter tops and custom cabinets plus the built-ins such as the Koa dining table, bed platform and sitting area benches. Mahogany, Koa and cedar are evident on the interior of the home. Large windows and skylights help keep it light and bright as well as ventilated by the available trade winds. Current owners have just completed many new upgrades, including putting on a new roof last year and upgrading appliances such as an on demand hot water heater, washer and dryer. The bathroom has also been completely remodeled and all wood surfaces refinished to a glow! Another addition is the Crow's Nest accessible from the side deck. Although not permitted, it is well constructed and allows for full ocean views over the tree tops. A great place to enjoy a cup of morning coffee or pau hana glass of wine.

Attached at the listing tool bar is a map showing the location and variety of fruit trees in the garden. Don't wait or you will miss this well priced, permitted home in a desirable coastline community.

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. 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.
