It is a “Beautiful Hill” as “Pu`u Lani” translates in Hawaiian and where the temperatures are consistently between 75 degrees to 85 degrees during the day and between 60 to 70 degrees at night throughout the year. The sunsets from this location on the island are canvas worthy and awe-inspiring.
Puu Lani Ranch is the preferred residential neighborhood for parents with children attending school in Waimea because residents enjoy the upcountry charm of the hill country while avoiding the wet Waimea climate.
Discretely hidden from the street below, a new concrete drive takes you up to and around the side of this private family hideaway. At the top of the curved drive the landscaping welcomes friends and family. Surrounded by a mature forested area, the lawn is newly refreshed offering a well groomed open space among the trees , while preserving nature in an environmentally conscientious “sense of place on the hill.”
Located about 20 miles in either direction to Kona or Waimea shopping, the home is the opposite of ostentation and feels like home in every respect. The covered outdoor eating and entertaining area perfectly meets the `Ohana-style of living so cherished by our Hawaiian families. The kitchen and baths are upgraded in cabinetry, granite counter tops, fixtures and appliances. Featuring travertine tile throughout the main living areas, carpeting in the bedrooms and GE Monogram appliances.
Far from the noises of the city but just across the entrance of Pu’u Lani sits one of Hawaii’s best golf courses & country clubs. “The Big Island Country Club” is known as “Hawaii’s most beautiful and distinctive golf course.” Golf amongst the splendor that is Hawaii with views of Maui, the Kohala Mountains and Mauna Kea.
