There are ceiling fans in every room – even the bathroom. A comfy Cal King bed with memory foam topper awaits you as well as a pillow topper queen size sofa sleeper to accommodate extra guests or family members. Have an afternoon siesta in your hammock. There is a full 4 piece bath indoors and an added bonus and to truly experience Hawaii there is an additional custom-built outdoor bamboo shower with hot water for your enjoyment.
Listen to the singing of the many songbirds as you leisurely sip your morning coffee/tea. Watch the dolphins as they swim by. Relax and unwind after a day of rejuvenating solitaire getaway adventure or nuzzle with a loved one watching a breathtaking Hawaiian sunset from your lanai with swaying palm and coconut trees framing your picturesque view. Star-gazing can be spectacular on the clear warm Hawaiian nights or a trip to Mauna Kea’s observatory to marvel at the clear star swept sky is well worth the trip.

There you will find a popular snorkeling spot named “Two Step” which is an easy access area for snorkeling or scuba diving. This area also has a public boat launch and a sand beach for the small children to swim in shallow waters. Another 10-minute drive will take you to Ho’okena Beach which is a black sand beach with great views, public facilities, camping, rental equipment and perfect for a picnic.
The sound of the ocean waves will enchant you. Visiting during the months of November through March is an excellent time for watching humpback whales breech from your lanai. On occasion, you can hear their singing and tail slapping. The Hawaiian spinner dolphins frequent the bay all year and can be seen jumping and “spinning” in the pristine blue waters.
Paradise awaits you!
