Rustic Setting and dwelling with nice amenities.
This is about as unique a lot as they come in the Kehena/Kalapan Neighborhood along the southeast coast of Big Island of Hawaii. The land is not flat as most lots are but a multi-dimensional park of a property with grottos, terraces, dramatic lava walls, out of which grow massive Jurassic Park size trees. One with a branch span over 100 feet wide. It is an awe inspiring place and it took 16 years to put the the three geologically connected lots together to create what looks like a park that is 1 1/2 acres in size. There are two cabins on the property. One is 'The Hobbit Home"' and the other is "Tree Art House" and both sit on the Sweet Spot Homestead. It is truly a 'Sweet Spot' and everybody without fails feels the name is apt. The Hobbit Home is sweetly tucked under a soaring canopy in the grotto with floor to ceiling windows looking out into a magical scene that really takes the breath away when you walk in the door. The walls are knotty pine and tile/wood floors. Everywhere you look out is green beauty laced with the colors of a tropical paradise. Since 1991 I have gathering exotics to plant on the property so my guest could enjoy a wide variety of fauna, flowers and fruit. The shower is outdoor next to a massive mango tree and there is a composting toilet. Yes, this is a real homestead where nothing goes to waste. Your vacation cabin is solar driven so you are off-the-grid driven by 100% sunshine. Something to write home about. You will serenaded to sleep by the pleasant song of the Coqui frogs
The neighborhood is pleasant to walk and just minutes to the spectacular coast line and the clothing optional Kehena Black Sand Beach. Kehena Bay is a favorite haunt for dolphins and frequented by whales in the winter time. A totally cool local scene has lots of color and character. One and half miles away is world re-known Kalani Honua Eco-Resort that hosts Ecstatic Dance on Sunday Mornings and the afternoon check out the drumming and dance circles on Seaview Lawn. Wednesday night is Uncle Robert's Open Air no cover gathering that is just the coolest thing on all the islands. A Local Hawaiian family opens their home to hundreds and into the the thousands of people who come to listen to live music, get local and world food from the vendors who show up, dance, socialize and get what it means to live aloha. The coast road is one of the most stunning drives on all Hawaii that winds its way along the coast through overgrown tree lined curves that create a tunnel of green. It is a breathtaking drive and 20 minutes away are warm ponds and a surf spot. The town of Pahoa is a funky down home eclectic scene that has both regular bars and kava bar. The awesome Tin Shack Bakery, Island Natural Food Store, along with Thai, Mexican, Italian, Pizza, American, Hawaiian, Sushi, Chinese restaurants. A world of food in a village. This part of Hawaii is what some say Hawaii looked like 50 years ago. Long time resident I can give you the ins and outs of what to see and how to get there. I
I have been planting and nurturing this space since 1991 and you can feel and see the love in this place. Various psychic have been to the property and independent of each other pointed to were there is a vortex. Just sayin'. So many places to hang out around the grounds that are both dramatic and serene. Of all the years I have been here and all the people who have come, none has not been impacted by this property. When I first arrived I found evidence of old Hawaiian culture that had lived in this grotto feeding on the mangos and feeding them to their pigs that were in a roughly walled area as a pen. You literally stand in the tree tops with the way the land falls away and the giant branches of a Monkey Pod Trees reach horizontal at about 20 feet as to embrace the viewer. A small trail dips into the grotto and the base of the trees and you step into another realm and ecosystem. I have been collecting exotic flowers for years and now there are cacao pods on the trees as well as lime, grapefruit and for the cooks there is rosemary, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, oregano, and Hawaiian and Ghost peppers ready to be used. I know you will love it here, every body does. It is that kind of place. Those who won't like it are more apt to stay at a resort, hotel, or boutique BnB. This is upscale rustic but 100% aloha.
I look forward to meeting you.+ More
