  • Description

    Description

    My property is close to the ocean (across the street) and would provide someone with endless recreation opportunities when not working. The area is historically significant dating back to the 1400's before contact with modern missionaries.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our property is located in one of the most culturally rich areas in the State. Neighbor operates a surf shop and so they could learn surfing! Also snorkeling and diving in the area is unparalleled.

    Help

    Need someone with strong building-carpentry experience, plumbing and electrical skills a plus; also willing to do yard maintenance and maybe landscaping. This property has been in my family since 1851 and originally had two grass huts on it! Over 20 years of neglect and bad tenants have left the two homes and the yard in a sad state of disrepair. We have fixed up one house enough for two people to stay. We would like to clean up, repair and redo the second house to allow living in it, then go back to the other house to either completely rebuild or extensively renovate it.

    Update as of July 15, 2019. I have received my building permits and should be ready in the next two months to start work on the houses.

    Accommodation

    House is located across the street from Kahalu'u bay and beach, a popular snorkeling and surfing destination. The house is very old and in need of a lot of work but has been equipped with new appliances, a new bed and air conditioning. There are two more bedrooms that could accommodate workawayers.

    Everything the Big Island of Hawaii has to offer! There is a local bus that goes into Kona town which one can board right near our home. Kona is best known for it's unique climate, abundant sunshine and warm weather, and incredible sunsets right in front of the house.
