Near to the rim of Waipio Valley on the Waimea side of the canyon lies the little known, totally self-sustainable, non-HELCO reliant community of West Waikoekoe. This is the only completely green and gated subdivision of its kind on the Big Island. Located less than 10 mi. from the center of Waimea w/2 college preparatory schools, N.Hawaii Community Hospital, all town services and approx. 40 min. to the resorts and world class beaches of the Gold Coast, W. Waikoekoe allows for luxury farming and ranching opportunities within the city limits. All lots are zoned Ag. 40 ac. so your closest neighbor may not even be in sight. The air is clean and the nights are star filled as there is no light pollution. The lights of Hana, Maui can sometimes be seen at night and the island of Maui, the blue Pacific Ocean, the colorful canyons of Waipio Valley and Mauna Kea dominate the landscape during the day. Fourteen years of landscaping and reforestation including the dedication of 7 ac. for a hardwood tree farm have gone into this property. Dedicated to native species and protected w/interior fencing. Over 1,000 trees including native Koa and Ohia, Red Gum and Rainbow Eucalyptus, Norfolk Pine, rare species of bamboo, flora and fauna collected from all over the islands, banana and fruit groves, ferns, Travelers palms, Hawaiian gardenias and purple ginger. Estimated at approx. 60% native, the list includes the State flower mao hau hele, ala ala wai nui and native taro just to name a few. The home is modest but well-built and cozy. From the lanai, one can see waterfalls in Waipio Valley-22 have been counted. When the trades blow into the valleys waterfalls at sunset, the patient observer may experience a spiraling rainbow within the depths of the valley. Once part of the vast royal lands of King Lunalilo and Parker Ranch, Waikoekoe is a truly special place which offers a rare lifestyle. 40+Solar panels, 2.5KW Xantrex inverter, 24Volt system, 12 deep cycle batteries all new 2005.
