We are GREEN, GREEN, GREEN! - totally off the grid. Energy from the sun, household water captured from the rain, and landscape irrigation from a well that taps both spring and ocean. All are very high capacity systems but we work with the weather of the day and are conservation minded.
This is a serene tropical escape. E komo mai.
