The space
In 2010, Kikuo built this house as an escape from the gray and cold of New York City winters. He was inspired by the vibrant colors and lush landscape. This house was a retreat where he could commune with the sky and the garden, and feel connected with the sea. Kikuo’s paintings are featured in each room of the house, demonstrating his different periods and forms: in the kitchen, “Blue Pyramid” from 1999; in the west bedroom, “Black Window” 2011; in the east bedroom, “Shepherd’s Arm” 1993.

Casa Kuku was designed by Architect Sarah Strauss of Bigprototype located in Brooklyn, NY. The house extends from east to west in a long rectangle allowing the trade winds from the north to passively cool the house. A long hallway on the north side was inspired by Kikuo’s travels and the long monastic ambulatories of southern Spain. Using local vent blocks, a large chevron pattern filters light and privacy against the valley. The house celebrates the continuity between interior and exterior by opening its walls to the tropical climate. Below the house is an entire floor devoted to hammocks and fern gardens.

The house comes equipped with solar panels and Lithium batteries to provide uninterrupted power in the event of a storm. We have solar hot water heaters and provide a 1000 gallons of back up water in tanks should there be a water outage.

Wildlife
There are many opportunities to observe local birds (red hawks, trupials, herons, etc.) and iguana in the valley!
Birdwatching and iguana watching were some of Kikuo’s favorite activities.

Pool
This is a salt water pool -the water is very soft and welcoming. Its long shape is the same proportion as the house and is perfect for lap swimming. The deep end is very deep – 8’-0”.

Guest access
Guests are welcome to use all areas of the property.
Please DO NOT go up on the roof. It is not secure and has solar panels and fragile equipment up there.

Other things to note
When checking out please make sure to wash all dishes and take the trash out. There are two trash barrels at the edge of the driveway with bungee cords and a lock. The lock is fake. Just undo the bungee cords and put the trash in the barrels.
