Welcome to Hawaii 448, the house of comfort and relaxation. This grand home is so comfortable you will not want to leave. Located just south of famed Honoka'a on the historic Hamakua Coast and close to Waipio Valley, Waimea, waterfalls, quaint shopping spots and ocean adventure areas.
Our on-site caretakers are available for guests who would like a greeting and orientation to the estate and are readily available (but completely out of sight and sound) to assist you during your stay. Parents please be aware that the property is not safe for walking babies, toddlers or small children because of many unprotected stairs, high-end and breakable decor. We welcome older children and infants (equipment is provided including a port-a-crib, high chair, pack'n'play and infant gym).
As you enter the 2.5 acre property through the palm lined driveway, you'll know you've found your 'home away from home'. Walk up the wide front stairs and pause on the front lanai to enjoy the expansive lawn and garden views. Then step inside and be greeted by the grand, open living spaces. The living room, dining area and kitchen are all open with a high, vaulted ceiling and wide sliding doors that open onto the huge lanai with an ocean view. Trade breezes flow through the plantation style house daily. Our favorite spot is the 600 square foot back lanai where you can gaze upon the ocean, dine on the teak table with seating for 6 or walk down to the hot tub on the deck below. The kitchen is stocked with everything you'll need for cooking 'today's catch' or farmer's market produce. The living room has plenty of comfortable seating for your group, a flat screen TV, stereo and music library. Additional to the outside dining is the inside dining with another long table and seating for 10. Just off the kitchen is a large reading room with 4 comfy chairs and ottomans and a full library to indulge in.
While the living spaces of the house are all open concept, the 4 bedrooms are each contained in one of the four corners of the house for utmost privacy. Both the Master Bedroom and Bedroom 2 have king size beds, en-suite bathroom, flat screen TV and access to the back lanai through French doors that are screened in case you want to sleep with the doors open and the breezes and sounds of nature. The Master Suite also includes walk-in closets. The Master Bathroom is elegantly designed with walk-in marble shower with 2 shower heads and marble bench as well as a soaking tub, a separate WC and double vanity sinks. Bedrooms 3 and 4 share a luxurious bathroom complete with marble tile and a bathtub with a shower. Bedroom 3 has a king size bed and flat screen TV and Bedroom 4 has a queen size bed and lovely garden views. Each of the 4 bedrooms is finished with high quality linens, elegant touches, ceiling fan and view of either the ocean or gardens. There is additional sleeping on a single pull-out bed in the living room and a couch with a firm, down cushion long enough for a small adult to comfortably sleep.
Hawaii 448 is the complete gathering spot vacation rental. With plenty of room for each guest to spread out inside or out, a large hot tub and 600 square foot ocean view lanai. This is a place you'll come back to year after year....start your experience now!
