The Big Island of Hawaii is where you will find not only some of the world’s most beautiful luxury homes, it’s also where you will find the wonders of nature everywhere you look – including gorgeous waterfalls. No question, many natural wonders add substantially to a property’s value, but this may not be the only reason to buy a luxury home near a waterfall. What makes waterfalls so special to so many people?
Let’s start with the simplest reason: waterfalls are soothing to the soul. Not only does the sight of a waterfall and the sounds of the water rushing over help you relax, it can also lower blood pressure.
Waterfalls can be one element of your landscape that are never constant. Depending on rain and weather conditions, a waterfall may provide a slow, soft trickle of water one day, and the sound of rushing water the next.
Have children, or enjoy entertaining? What better way to have a great time with family and friends than spending time around a waterfall? Sit around and visit while listening to the soothing sounds of the water, or get wet and play with the kids. Mother Nature’s perfect gift! A waterfall is also the ideal spot for a little romance at sunset, or after the sun goes down.
This one may come as a surprise – waterfalls can be beneficial to the immune system. Did you know waterfalls contain minute, electrically charged water particles that effectively clean the lungs and can help people with asthma or allergies? The micro-fine spray of a waterfall can reach the lungs/respiratory system, and stimulate the immune system. This was found to be the case in a scientific study conducted by the Paracelsus Private Medical University in Salzburg.
There are many natural wonders in Hawaii that attract luxury homebuyers, but waterfalls seem to be the most magical of all!
