Where does Mr. Las Vegas, Wayne Newton go to get away from the glitz and crowds? To his breathtaking Paradise on the Hamakua Coast of Hawai’i’s Big Island!
Over the last 20 years, Wayne Newton and his wife have enjoyed their isolated 230-acre Conservation-zoned property in Kamaee-Waikaumalo with canopy-covered trails leading to spectacular waterfalls lagoons where they re-charge and get away from it all.
At an ideal climate elevation spanning 1,600 to 2,400 feet, this property has a diversity of endemic plants, forest cover and ground mosses. Scattered through the landscape are native 'O'hia trees, Eucalyptus, Paperbark, Waiwi (guava), Kukui (nut), and even some Koa at the higher plateaus of the property.
Located between the historic former sugar plantation villages of Laupahoehoe and Ninole, the Newtons’ tropical forest is ultimately peaceful with only the sounds of birdsong and splashing waterfalls.
Zoning allows for one residence to be constructed with the guarantee that the surrounding forest will be protected in perpetuity.
For conveniences, enjoy the scenic ocean-side drive to Hilo, Honoka’a or the charming paniolo town of Waimea.
If tropical scenery, privacy and deep contact with nature are calling you to Hawaii, this unique legacy property may be your Eden.
