As much as I’ve seen in my dozen plus years of selling real estate, I have to say this Honomu property is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. If you’ve ever dreamed of owning your own tropical paradise, this may very well be for you. I’m talking about 98 acres of pristine ag land adjoining Akaka Falls, one of the most well-known and breathtaking waterfalls on the entire island! You read that correctly, 98 acres of beautiful, ocean view property adjoining a large state park with an iconic waterfall.
There are so many amazing opportunities at your fingertips with this land, which runs parallel to Akaka Falls State Park. For starters, you’ll never have obstructed view plains because the state lands will never be developed. There are numerous site pads on the property on which to build your custom Hawaii home and enjoy views of the Pacific Ocean, streams and waterfalls. A waterfall on the first streambed and views of Akaka Falls itself are possible with a little tree clearing. People travel from around the world to visit these majestic falls and you can potentially have that view from your own house!
Because the lower portion of the property is close to the entrance of Akaka Falls, you could build a home in the middle or top of the property and work at the bottom of the property operating a fresh produce or sandwich stand near the Akaka Falls parking lot.
If you are looking for a ranching property, 35 acres below the forest line are cleared and fenced for livestock with hog-fencing on three sides (open to the gulch.) An additional two lower acres are also fenced.
Zoned Ag-20, there are possibilities of subdividing as well although you’ll need to check with Hawaii County officials about that possibility and special use permits.
Another possibility is timber harvesting, which is an active industry along the Hamakua Coast. The top 30 acres of this Honomu property feature several crops of Robusta Eucalyptus and Mahogany. Below that is a parcel of land with Cocobolo trees and at least two acres with more than 200 native Ohia trees, Hawaiian Sumac, and other native tree species. Ask me about government reforestation farm program (called a CREP) and possible timber contracts.
An additional property one lot over featuring a large custom home is also available. Buy both properties and move in to a lovely home while you farm or ranch on the 98 acres or buy the 98 acres as your own tropical oasis.
This property is at the top of Honomu, a charming former plantation town with quaint shops, churches, and a bakery. It’s just a short drive from Hilo with its major university, airport, shipping and transportation hubs, as well as restaurants, shops, and entertainment.
Hands down, this is an amazing opportunity with its incredible ocean and waterfall views, ideal location next to one of the most famous waterfalls in Hawaii, and a bevy of possibilities.
