About Randall Duryea
My wife and I live in Inverness California when we are not here in Pepeekeo. We sometimes joke about having to choose between paradise #1 and paradise #2. I am a practicing Emergency Physician and administrator for a large, multi-state Emergency Medicine partnership. My wife, Laura is a Voice Teacher and director of a small local children's theater company in Point Reyes Station, CA. We are both practicing Buddhists and have a dedicated meditation room in the house.
Randall Duryea purchased this House in 2001
Why Randall Duryea chose Pepeekeo
My sister is a nurse practitioner who has lived and worked in the Hilo area for 20+ years. We fell in love with the area during multiple visits here and decided to buy a second home. Our vision has been to create a serene, retreat-like space where families and small groups, as well as ourselves, can enjoy the uniquely nurturing environment of this beautiful island.
What makes this House unique
The privacy, quiet, gorgeous ocean views and beautiful gardens of our home make for a wonderful place to simply hang-out and relax. The pool and large yard and covered patio are very popular with families with children. We LIVE here part-time and the house is our home. It is furnished and equipped not like a typical vacation rental, but like a home. Our guests have always appreciated that and been very respectful of our home, which we deeply appreciate.
