Old Hawaii at its Finest
A rarely available, beautiful Hawaiian home - the land has been in the same family since 1873 and this wonderful old style Kama’aina home was built on the land in 2008, using traditional styles and finishes; and with superb attention to detail. It is a very much loved family home, available to rent only a few times a year. Situated on 5.9 acres this is a true gem and you won’t find another property like it.
This house is set up for Ohana (family) get togethers – sleeping 12 comfortably. Traditionally there are no TVs in the property (but they can be arranged if desired), the family comes here to decompress from day to day life, and to enjoy each others’ company – we invite you to do the same.
