About this listing
The property is in a very large subdivision of mostly 1 acre parcels and the climate is basically rain forest mitigated by the trade winds off the ocean, so the surrounding environment is very green and usually balmy and tranquil with the daytime skies are either cloudy to very cloudy or a brilliant blue or sometimes both and very dark at night.
Situated on an acre of land that slopes gently downward toward a bluff at the ocean’s edge, the property offers a unique environment perfect for a peaceful and relaxing vacation experience. Enjoy the tranquility of the zen garden, long walks along the coastline, or simply sit and relax amid the serenity of a shady retreat between lily ponds. The property is fully landscaped with over 100 varieties of flora, including: bamboo, water lilies, fragrant flowers, ornamental vines, succulents, and fruit-bearing trees.
Take a relaxing dip in the Japanese-style soaking tub that spills over into a gorgeous, 42’ long, salt water, infinity edge lap pool. Soak up some sun or recline under an umbrella on a poolside lounge chair overlooking the ocean. The pool deck area includes an outdoor hot water shower.
When conditions are right, the snowy peak of Mauna Kea can be seen from the property, as can whales, dolphins, sea turtles, Nene and other species unique to Hawaii. Fishing is a common activity along the bluff.

For 30 years I traveled around the world for pleasure and business. Formerly an executive in a division of one of the major US hotel companies, I've lived in Hawaii since 1995 and when I retired in 2010, my wife and I moved to the part of Hawaii (and the world) we liked best.
