Imagine yourself at home in this cozy, quiet neighborhood, in the village of Honomu, (silent bay) about 25 minutes from Hilo, and 7 minutes from Akaka Falls State Park, home of the magnificent Akaka Falls.
This is an older home, but has been well-loved. There are two bathrooms and three bedrooms upstairs, along with a kitchen and living room area. One bathroom was renovated this year, the other in 2020. The kitchen was renovated in 2021 with a new dishwasher, fridge, and wall oven. There is a laundry on the roofed back porch, with older appliances, near the stairs leading down to the basement area. A layout is attached.
The home sits on a sloped lot, with the living quarters on one level and just a step or two up from ground level at the front of the house, and an unfinished basement underneath the back of the house. The owners have installed an air conditioned 12x12 office in the otherwise unfinished basement, and also use it as a work shop. The basement has an old-fashioned but functional shower (with great water pressure) and a toilet, neither of which is enclosed.
The front yard is small, but the back yard has plenty of room for pets, gardening, and games. There are lots of fruit trees, mostly citrus, but also a sapote, two varieties of kumquats, and two Hawaiian chili pepper plants. A chart showing their locations is attached.
The home is served by Spectrum Cable, with download speeds around 100 MBPS and uploads of around 11.
Just a stroll down the road is the small and charming village of Honomu. It sits slightly off the Belt Highway, and has the look and feel of old Hawaii. Formerly home to the Honomu Sugar Company, it is now home to a cafe, a bakery, a zipline tour company, a lovely koa furniture shop, and several gift shops and places of worship. Hilo is replete with almost all the goods and services you could wish for
