Dreaming of Paradise in Old Hawaii

Big Island of Hawaii

It’s not easy to find paradise. When Charlene Cowan and her husband Cortney bought Macadamia Meadows Farm more than a decade ago, it wasn’t an easy journey. It took 10 years and four deals that fell out of escrow for one reason or another in Hawaii before they were able to locate the right place.

But life has changed and the Cowans want to be closer to family on the mainland so it’s time to sell their piece of paradise. Housing Predictor doesn’t usually profile individual homes or Estates, but this majestic 8.19 acre Estate is such a rare find we just wanted to share its beauty.

Macadamia Meadows Farm

The Japanese style Estate was designed by a civil engineer with its sprawling wide open floor plan. The home doubles as a Bed and Breakfast and it has 8 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and is in the middle of a Macadamia nut farm, which serves as a rare reminder of Old Hawaii. “It’s so natural,” says Charlene. “It has the feel of the old Hawaii long ago. We back up to state land.”

The architecture is rich with warm wood interior from floor to ceiling. The rolling acreage reaches an elevation of 1,000 feet on the property located on the Big Island of Hawaii in the historic Kau District close to two beaches, and just around the corner from South Point, the southern most point in the U.S.
