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 different 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 swimming 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.

  • Your home was beautiful! We enjoyed sitting out on the ledge above the ocean the most.

  • Sehr schöne Lage in der ersten Reihe, auf Grund der Steilküste dementsprechend kein Meerzugang, Zimmer sehr schön ,die Nordseitenzimmer können nur über den Livingroom ins Bad , hatten das ganze Haus gemietet, d.h. 7 Personen, das ist vom Esstisch her nicht vorgesehen, nur für 4 Leute Sitzgelegenheit pro Stock, Kochmöglichkeit nur in offener Küche vor dem Haus ( was bei Regen mühsam ist) kein Geschirrspüler, gute Grillmöglichkeit auf Terasse sehr schöner Pool mit Hottub, Hausherr gerne behilflich

  • The house is very comfortable, our family were very happy to live there. Kitchen is natural space. Yard is Chic and spacious. Pool is beautiful. Hammock is nice......
    Dan is very kind and friendly. And he gave us a lot of information and help. Gave us to eat local papaya and banana.
    House location is great, the beach, very convenient to the airport and the volcano. There are people dedicated to our side of the car to see the sea.
    Whether you want to have a break or a trip on the Big Island, it is a great choice.
    But unfortunately because of cold weather, we did not swim in the pool.

  • This ocean-front place is absolutely wonderful! Dan was really friendly, nice and helpful. We loved the hot spa under the moonlight and the bbq place was very comfortable and equipped. I think we enjoyed bbq almost everyday. And most importantly, this place is spotless and very very clean. The room condition including the floor, the towels and the bedding are like five stars hotel. Maybe the only thing you need to concern about is that you have to prepare your own small size cooking oils, condiments. I was not aware of this, so we went to supermarket next day. Overall, this place two thumbs up!

  • My wife and 3 children had the most amazing stay. The accomodation is immaculate and the pool is amazing. The location is perfect, a bit out of town in a quiet spot overlooking the blue ocean. The garden is an inspsiration and you will find something new every day from a nice spot to sit to a beautiful flower or plant. You will be made very welcome by your hosts. One of our all time favourite holiday spots. You cant beat this place. Just book it!!

this and that
For 30 years I traveled around the world for pleasure and business. Formerly an executive in a division of one of the major US hotel companies, I've lived in Hawaii since 1995 and when I recently retired, my wife and I moved to the part of Hawaii (and the world) we liked best.奥さんは日本人です。退職する前は仕事で方々とくに日本へは度々行きました。でも今住んでいる所が世界中で一番空気がきれいで気に入っています。奥さんが農園で野菜や果物を育てるのを手伝ったり、趣味のソフトボールをしています。
