Few days ago I thought I found a perfect place. It was a gorgeous balinese style house on 2 acres near Pahoa. It was situated in a beautiful community and soon after I found out that the HOA had an CC&R which restricted the use for single family home residences. I viewed few more homes and was starting to feel maybe it wasn't the right time.
Today, as I was about to give up my search, my wonderful realtor takes me to see this house that is still building. It's a 3 acre in Orchidland in Kea'au, Hawaii. They call it orchidland because the area is filled with wild orchilds all around. I am in love with this Aina (land). It's already cleared and lawn seeds spread and so many baby fruit trees.
Wish me luck. I will put in my offer. If that is successful, and this is indeed our retreat, I will start posting pictures! Love and light, Jennifer.
