Beloved & Sustainable Bamboo Farmstead In Hamakua With Gorgeous Views

Looking for sustainable living? Farm dwellings? Established and fruiting trees? Even some architectural timber grade bamboo and fantastic ocean views!?

Look no further; you found your perfect Hamakua (Big Island) parcel!

This 5-acre farmstead located in Paauilo Mauka with rich and fertile soil comes equipped with some agricultural dwellings. Framed with bamboo, a rustic but charming cabin with wood burning stove sits on an incredible house site with ocean views and accessed via concrete roads. Separated by a seasonal stream (which has a bamboo bridge over it!), there’s a well built cabin surrounded by old growth Ohia trees. In addition to the two cabins, there’s a large engineered CoverAll workshop, and a well constructed yoga deck with ocean and sunrise views.

This farmstead has been a site for an organic composting tea business, a gathering place for international interns to study regenerative agriculture/ecology/forestry/bamboo, and a venue where people came to heal inside and out; just imagine how happy the plants are! Surrounding the property are large and mature native Ohia trees, most are 200+ years old!
