All we can share is Wow and too short!
Together with our visiting friend couple from Taiwan, we came from Los Angeles to visit the Hawaii Big Island for the first time during 6/23-30, 2016 and stayed at this house for the 28th night without previously knowing what to expect and how long we should stay there. To summarize our experiences of this one night stay, I have the pleasure of noting the following: 1) The owner couple had been very kind and patient guiding and providing answers for all our questions. They treated us as friends more than consumers. Starting here, you had already felt the warmth of the Hawaii hearts (as well as the weather, ha ha!) 2) Driving through the winding and narrow paved asphalt path to the easily spot sign of this house, all of us kept bursting out Wow! Wow! Wow! The giant ferns along both sides of the path, the Christmas Trees with dotted plum-sized red flowers (That is what New Zealanders call because they have all these trees with flame-sea like red flowers all through their Christmas season in their December summer time ) and various colors of hydrangea seemed to welcome us all the way. 3) The house is surrounded with more giant ferns, Asian bamboo trees and some native flowers. All are neatly maintained and nicely situated. If you have kids or grand kids with you, I am sure they would start running around or playing hide-and-seek. It is spacious and gives you a feeling of the Garden of Eden. What I meant is the owner and creator of this house had the landscaping and the interiors thoughtfully preplanned and therefore, "It was good". 4) The house's interior decoration is gorgeous. That would make you think that the owner was type of artistic. And after closely looking around, we began to know that the owner's wife is not only an artist but also an author of many books. The master bedroom upstairs was especially impressive. Through the window outside, you would see birds perching and singing on the trees. The bathroom is considered a high-end hotel class. Wherever your sights rested on, you would see various painting and decorations. So, how do I describe the atmosphere of the interior? It was a mixture of a cozy charming hostel, a coffee shop setting and a gallery and library. 5) Since we have very short stay and could not fully explore the benefits of using all the inside and outside stuff, especailly the BBQ sets and lounge chairs, the books, etc. we do belive the fun staying there exceeded I can describe here.
