A Piece of Paradise
Hey Beth and Dave, I am home in my chilly little corner of the earth right now reflecting about our lovely and idyllic stay at your wonderful home. I knew of the area and had stayed up the road, so I knew about how lovely Painted Church Road was. Its at just the right elevation, in the forest, surrounded by a constant, soothing chorus of birdlife. From the moment we stepped inside the door and were welcomed by both Dave and Beth's hospitality and the feel and views of the house, we knew that we were in for a treat. It was an instant feeling of relaxation. The coastal views looking north towards Captain Cooks Monument and Kealakakua Bay are stunning. The windows surround you with tranquil views in all directions...nothing to see but nature and the sea. We spent days enjoying the pool, cooking in the generous kitchen with ample provisions, spices, coffee, pineapples, Avocado and Banana that Beth and Dave provided for us. I was torn between wanting to sleep laze the comfortable bed, surrounded by the pacifying noises, or awake to sit on the lanai and watching the sunrise over the mountain lighting the land, my coffee in hand. I loved the breezes that flow gently through the house. Mostly the lanai won out. And although I am a late sleeper at home, I awoke easily in the tropical warmth and enjoyed Banana Bread and Coffee each morning. We all want to thank you for sharing your lovely house with us. All of the details and care that you put into it are so beautiful. The privacy and location are so lovely. We cooked every day and shared many wonderful meals and enjoyed our last afternoon relaxing by the pool. We were torn between another sunset BBQ at Place of Refuge, but there really is not a bad choice to make. While we cooked out at Place of Refuge on more than one occasion we had whales frolicking offshore the whole time. We saw Whales Fluking at Two Step Beach, and we got to see Eagle Rays and Turtles. All in all...can't really complain! The rainstorm our last night and subsequent chorus of creatures to lull us to sleep was a nice experience too. You have a wonderful and special place there, and we all wish you lots of success and enjoyment with it in the years to come...and if we are lucky enough to share it again, well that is something that we can only look forward to in our dreams. Again...thank you so much. Your home is a special place on earth, made more special and delightful by the way you take care of it and us! Mahalo, Claire
