Sustainable Ocean View Retreat!

35-541 Kapehu Road

Now available: Sustainable ocean view retreat bordering stream with waterfalls on 17 acres on the Hamakua Coast!

Located just a half hour from Hilo and Waimea, this one of a kind getaway features a fully self-sufficient home perched on 17 acres of rolling hills, with majestic vistas of the Pacific Ocean.

On the south boundary, a stunning 20 foot waterfall cascades into a secluded swimming hole.

Grow your own fruits and vegetables on this sprawling property with fertile silty clay loam soil, then dine on the expansive deck of your private home while taking in the views.

The cabin features cedar siding, high ceilings and an open living design, allowing in plenty of light and unobstructed views. A massive wrap-around deck allows plenty of outdoor living space, and leads up to a large art studio that could easily serve as a guest wing.

Enjoy a totally off grid lifestyle! Both solar and wind power feed the home, which enjoys a large gourmet kitchen and gas appliances, including an on-demand water heater.

A 6,500 gallon water purification system converts rain into pristine water, while smart engineering work allows used shower water to be converted to waste water needs, all of which feed into a septic tank to keep mother nature clean.

Live and farm in paradise! A productive Banana patch and guava orchard provide plenty of tropical fruit for smoothies, while orange, lime, lemon, Star fruit, 30 coffee trees, purple sugar cane, and ginger are being grown on the property. Other trees include cinnamon, native lemon, and coconuts.

Cool elevation weather year round, and minimal bug presence (very few mosquitos)!
