Elegant luxury home, 20 ac, ocean view

The Kapehu Retreat House is a grand and elegant luxury home on 20 private landscaped acres, with expansive ocean views, fruit trees you can pick, 2 streams, and your own private little waterfall.

The quiet serenity of the Kapehu estate can restore your soul:

Though it's only 15 minutes from downtown Hilo (restaurants, shops, medical facilities, farmer's & artisan's market, international airport, etc.), it's utterly peaceful:

- no city sounds or traffic noise, just the soothing sounds of the Kapehu Stream and its many waterfalls, and the ocean breezes rustling the palms.

- no city lights and no road lights to dim the spectacular night sky.

Additional Location Information

Only 10 miles or 15 minutes from downtown Hilo, nestled in the lush Hamakua hillside overlooking the ocean. Twenty minutes from Hilo international airport.
The Hilo side of Hawaii is the lush and beautiful side, where all the streams and waterfalls and scenic canyons are. We have 2 streams and a small waterfall on the Kapehu estate. Five miles away is the spectacular Akaka Falls State Park. There are 2 gorgeous botanical gardens within a few minutes of the Kapehu estate and several zip lines. There are 8 black sand beaches within a few minutes drive (less crowded than the Kona beaches), where giant friendly sea turtles will come and swim with you. One of the best snorkeling reefs in the Pacific Ocean is just south-east of Hilo on the eastern point of the island.
Volcanoes National Park is 3/4 hour to the south; you'll want to visit it several times in order to see many of the sights. (From the Kona side you'd have to drive more than 2 hours to get to Volcanoes Nat'l Park.)
The Hilo side is cooler than the Kona side, because we have the sweet gentle trade winds constantly blowing in from the east. Also, we rarely-to-never get vog (toxic sulfuric acid smoke from the volcano) because the wind blows the vog away from us and toward Kona.
We searched for 8 years to find the very best location to be in Hawaii. We found it at Kapehu!
