Waipio – Valley of the Kings
Waipio Valley, located on the Big Island’s Hamakua Coast, is known for its black sand beach, meandering streams, taro fields and mesmerizing waterfalls. For many, this land, once home to Hawaiian royalty, is a sacred and spiritual place. Opportunities to purchase real estate in Waipio Valley are rare and generally appeal to a select few intrepid and adventurous souls.
It is a distinct honor for me, as a Big Island Realtor, to be the listing agent for MLS 242407, a 2.76 acre parcel of land bordering the pools at the bottom of Papala Falls, a 1000′ seasonal waterfall located about 3 miles back in the valley. This unique property, which has a rich history of its own, is home to the famous Waipio Tree House, once a popular guest house owned by Linda Beech.
Linda and her tree house, built high up in a towering monkeypod tree, hosted many visitors and distinguished guests and even achieved acclaim in national print publications and TV productions. This Open Road TV video interview with Linda during the time she was the owner of the land captures the essence of this property and shows you what the guest house once was. (The tree house has seen some wear and tear over the last few years, but the future owner, with dedication and TLC, could restore it to its former glory.)
With a recent price reduction of nearly $50K, this parcel is now available for $199,500*. Please contact me for more information or to arrange a tour of the property.
