The Space

Situated on an acre of land that slopes gently downward toward a bluff at the ocean’s edge, the property offers a unique environment perfect for a peaceful and relaxing vacation experience. Enjoy the tranquility of the Zen garden, long walks along the coastline, or simply sit and relax amid the serenity of a shady retreat between lily ponds. The property is fully landscaped with over 100 varieties of flora, including: bamboo, water lilies, fragrant flowers, ornamental vines, succulents, and fruit-bearing trees.

Take a relaxing dip in the Japanese-style soaking tub that spills over into a gorgeous, 42’ long, salt water, infinity edge lap pool. Soak up some sun or recline under an umbrella on a poolside lounge chair overlooking the ocean. The pool deck area includes an outdoor shower with hot water, a barbecue, and food preparation and dining areas.

When conditions are right, the snowy peak of Mauna Kea can be seen from the property, as can whales, dolphins, sea turtles, Nene geese, and other species unique to Hawaii. Fishing is a common activity along the bluff.

Accommodations are in a luxurious oceanfront home offering spectacular views. The building contains the owners’ residence and two separate units with identical floor plans. Both the upstairs and downstairs units are spacious apartments that can be rented as either a one- or two-bedroom unit.

This listing is for the two-bedroom configuration of the second floor unit. This can become two completely separate apartments if you like. It is perfect for two couples who like to travel together, reducing the accommodation cost while allowing each couple comfort and privacy. This can work for two singles also. Both bedrooms have their own entrances and lanais and all rooms have magnificent ocean views.

The maximum occupancy for all our units is two persons per bedroom, the maximum for the two-bedroom, two-bath configuration is four persons. Please let us know, when making a reservation, how many persons will be in your party.

Guest Access

Guests have access to the pool and spa, the exterior cooking areas and all landscaped areas.

Interaction with Guests

I usually meet with guests upon arrival to show them to the unit and answer any questions. After that, we try to stay out of sight as much as possible, but I am available to answer questions or help with any problems guests might have.

Getting Around

There are buses and cabs, but they are not practical for the typical guest. In almost all cases, a rental car is necessary.
