Situated in a unique ecosystem at the 4000 foot elevation this private 30 acres estate has giant Koa trees, a green house with a tropical plant collection, Koi pond and a grove of perhaps the largest Ohia trees in the state of Hawaii Some of the Ohia trees may have even been saplings when the first Hawaiians arrived, and today stand over 110 feet high and have a circumference close to 30 feet. There are beautiful walking trails that winded through 1,000+ year old rainforest that shares a border with Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. If you enjoy birds, this is one of the few places you can stay in Hawaii where you can still see the rare and endangered native Hawaiian forest birds. There is a nesting pair of endangered Hawaiian Hawks on the property, as well as several species of honeycreepers (Apapane, Amakihi, and I'iwi, with occasional visits by a small flock of Akepa) to whose beautiful and mellow songs you will awaken each morning. Nene fly overhead daily, and the Hawaiian Thrush (Omao) sings each evening.
