The Lonely Planet travel guide said, 'These three tranquil and secluded rooms all have wonderful views and pleasing decor, but the perspective of Waipi'o from the detached cottage may make you forget your name.'

Southeby's international real estate magazine cover photo features the view from the property.

This magnificent 5 acre permaculture organic exotic orchard retreat sits back on 650' cliff above Waipio Valley, and looks to the ocean Southeast, North and Northwest up the undeveloped rugged coastline. Sometimes there are a multitude of waterfalls seen cascading down 1400' cliffs into the sea. Gaze at lush greenery, frequent rainbows, especially during the wet season (Winter/Spring). Epic views face 23 miles of these 1400' cliffs, backed up by undeveloped jungle. Whales jumping and breaching can be seen from the property during the winter/spring. Maui is visible on clear days. The area boasts a perfect climate of just enough rain to keep the streams going and the flowers blooming, cool trades off the ocean, and a daytime year-round temperature typically between 70 and 81 degrees, with cooler nights.

The property is landscaped with a vast variety of exotic trees, ferns, orchids, orchids, heliconia, hibiscus, palms, other flowering shrubs/plants and exotic fruits to pick. We are in the early stages of growing Vanilla, Cocoa,dragon fruit, black sapote (Chocolate pudding tree), Cashew and Macadamia nut trees. hamakua coast coffee beans, mangos, mangosteens, avocados, pomelo, Jackfruit,papaya, passion fruit, soursop, rambutan, lychee nuts, starfruit, Brazillian cherries, jaboticaba, cherymoya, mountain apples, true cinnamon, cloves, Miracle berries, a variety of citrus, bananas and much more grown on the property.

Walk along the cliff's edge/ocean path or explore the path through bamboo. Both short easy walks take you to an opening on the picturesque lawn going down to the cliff's edge. Take another short steep path (for sturdy feet only) past the Banyan tree and passion fruit vines into the gulch on our property.

Listen to the peaceful sounds of the Waiulili Stream running through the property. Black Sand beach seen from the property. Ocean and waterfall views abound. Enjoy the peace and privacy of your own suite complete with private outdoor soaking tubs to relax in and enjoy the stars.

Staying at Hale Kukui is an ecoadventure and an end destination in itself! It is also a great jump off point for other destinations!

Overview of the neighborhood: Old Hawaii meets modern conveniences, safe, private, lush natural beauty and most of the comforts of home.

If you are able to pull yourself away to see other parts of the island, Hale Kukui is a great stepping stone to the whole island. Walk or drive 1.5 miles to the black sand beach below property and down a 25% grade road(4x4 required to drive) or 1/4 mile to Waipio lookout. Walk 1/4 mile to get island made ice cream at Kukuihaele's art store. Its an easy 10 minute drive to the farmer's market in Honoka'a where there are several quaint shops, restaurants and basic groceries. Try local ride the rim, surfing, biking, helicopter tours of Waipio Valley, horseback, hiking, camping and enjoy the longest black sand beach in Hawaii where a river meets the sea, surfing and sunbathing in historic Waipio Valley.

Drive to Hawaiian cowboy country in Waimea and you can smell eucalyptus on your way to the cooler climate in Waimea (Kamuela). Here there is more shopping,fast food chains, a bigger hospital and some of the best fine food in the islands (only 20 minutes away). Go to Merriman's for the best seafood and Kailua pork quesadillas.

Hale kukui is fairly central to Kona, Hilo, Volcanoes National Park, Hot Springs, the entire lush Hamakua coast starting at Waipio and its black sand beach where wild horse sometimes are seen. A beautiful drive to the top of Mauna Kea with its observatories, winter snow skiing/no lifts (tallest mountain in the world measured from the sea floor and 14,000 ft above sea level). Drive on to the white sand beaches about 20 minutes from Waimea, the 5 star hotels and high end shopping of the west coast.

Driving east along the lush Hamakua coast, see Akaka falls, the world famous botanical gardens, Hilo, Volcanoes National park, Natural hot springs in Pahoa. Take the saddle road between Hilo and Waimea and drive to the 14,000 top of Mauna Kea along the way (many countries have their space observatories there).

Visit Kona and see if you think the preferred coffee of the white house is really as good as the lesser locally known rich tasting Hamakua coast coffee. Hale Kukui grows small amounts of its own and while we don't dry and roast it, you are welcome to try.

Hilo and Honoka'a have great outdoor markets and shopping. Nearby surfing and boating is possible of course. and it is a beautiful 1 hour drive along the Hamakua coast. Must see Volcanoes National Park and swim in the hot springs in Pahoa. Kona is about 1hr 40 minutes away along very nice highways as are most places.
The whole island has so much to offer but you will definitely want to relax at Hale Kukui for its unmatched epic views and natural private surroundings. Each unit or cottage has its own kitchen/kitchenette ready to cook, full bathroom, private lanai with a soak tub outdoors . You may not want to leave.
