“HONOLI’I SECLUDED HIDEAWAY – BEACHFRONT, OCEANFRONT AND RIVERFRONT. Situated on the banks of Honoli’i Stream, with direct ocean beach access through a private securely gated path, this 2 bed/2 bath home is completely secluded while having unobstructed ocean, river and valley views. The adjacent park is considered the premier surfing spot on the Big Island and provides an uninterrupted lanai vista of surfers in the breaking waves. Known since ancient times as the “Traveling Sands of Honoli’i”, a broad sandy beach typically extends most of the way across the stream mouth, disappearing periodically when heavy rainfall floods the river, yet the sand always returning. Surrounded by lush tropical jungle foliage, the setting is one of an isolated and remote jungle hideaway while being only 15 minutes to the Hilo International Airport and all the amenities of Hilo Town. An adjacent bridge was built for the railroad in 1911 while a traditional Hawaiian river and lava rock retaining wall, measuring over 100’ long and 10-15’ high, adds to the old-world charm of the property.

Honoli’i has been called a “magical remnant of Old Hawaii” w/significant historical and mythological relevance. It appears in many Hawaiian legends including “Maui Seeking Immortality”, “Pele and Hiiaka”, and “The Story of Laieikawai”. This beautiful river valley was once the site of a small Hawaiian fishing village with most of the community concentrated along the borders of the stream. Known especially for its delicious limu (seaweed), there is an abundance of Green Sea turtles and seasonal whales. While the 1,088 sqft. guest home is completely functional, the owner has designed and fully permitted house plans for an expanded structure with nearly 3,000 sq. ft. of living area plus a cantilevered garage, all plans included with the sale. The property is serviced by conventional utilities and an artesian spring for your water supply. A once in a lifetime opportunity…” CLICK HERE TO SEE THE COMPLETE LISTING.
