In a quiet hilltop neighborhood within an old lychee tree grove, this beautiful home has a view of the ocean, mountain breezes, and good morning light. This is a perfect Hawaii getaway for the traveling couple who simply want a central but peaceful retreat to relax and rest at while enjoying the island.
Located in central Oahu, and only 8 minutes away from the airport. Convenient distance to all parts of the island by car without the downtown traffic.
When in season, you are welcome to pick and enjoy eating our apple bananas, passion fruit, lemons, mint, lychee, papayas, Surinam cherries, and breadfruit -- all growing in our garden. You are also welcome to cook with the daily eggs from our three hens. The view from the treehouse is great, too!
You are welcome to use our kitchen, living room, courtyard patio, backyard and, of course, our treehouse.
I am happy to help with travel tips during your stay in the islands. I used to run a boutique travel outfit, so have lots of good ideas about what to do for fun, where to eat, and authentic Hawaii experiences off the beaten path.
- No shoes in the house (Hawaiian custom)
- No making noise after 11:00PM
- No downloading or torrenting illegal/copyrighted/pirated material.
I'm an international entrepreneur and outdoor enthusiast. I've worked on international energy policy in Indonesia and education consulting in China. Both were exercises in healthy humility. Hawaii is where I grew up, and perhaps where I'll end up settled some day, but in the near term I live between the US and Asia. I enjoy good company, conversation and, in general, opportunities to help and understand people - especially when the two endeavors coincide. Love to cook, jog, surf, read, listen, get outdoors with my dog, go on long walks, learn languages, etc. And I'm looking forward to meeting new people like you!
