Guest access

Check in 3 pm and Check out 11 am
Three separate and private spaces at Kaunaoa Sanctuary
The gardens and common areas are shared of course, and pathways in and out. Both houses on each side have bedroom windows just 7 feet away. This is urban Honolulu so please use a soft voice and consider the many neighbors nearby sleeping and meditating.
The house has a utility/laundry room needed for security and the cleaning/maintenance crew with back up laundry facilities that is inaccessible from the inside and is off limits to Guests. However "entire home/apt" is accurate as the space is completely private as pictured and it is not shared. Your host and staff will be using equipment stored in the utility room to clean and maintain the three separate and private spaces on the property, and the gardens and to maintain security and enforce the rules. They will be seen coming and going.
There is the cozy corner space attached to the house that is inaccessible except from the back and that is private and perfect for family reunions.

Interaction with guests

I can interact with Guests as little or as much as they like. I can gauge when guests need help or privacy. Sometimes I am present on the property tending to the garden and maintenance chores.

The neighborhood
