11.84 acres located up a sweet country road in Honaunau, South Kona, known as Telephone Exchange Rd; just a wee jiggity-jog off of the Hawaii Belt Rd, which leads you to this private orchard of 400 Macadamia Nut trees. The property’s perimeter is fenced with the access road driving through it. There is approximately one acre of forest on either side of the road, left wild as a sanctuary of native flora and fauna. Fully mature, grafted Macadamias were planted nearly 40 years ago.
