Hanalei house description

This unique home is built up high on a hilltop overlooking the Wainiha Valley. Surrounded by beautiful jungle vegetation you will be reminded of what old Hawaii must have felt like. It is situated at the end of the road about 1/4 mile from the Wainiha Grocery store Hub and the ocean front. We are 3 miles past Hanalei town towards the Na Pali coast and 2 miles from the Na Pali coast and the Kalalau trail. The property is at the end of our street on an acre of landscaped grounds with 4000 acres of tropical conservation rainforest jungle surrounding it on 3 sides. The atmosphere is peaceful and secluded and guests that love it here are seeking a tranquil retreat where they can be in the midst of nature, close to beaches and hiking trails and exerience the joys of eco-tourism.
You will wake to the gentle sounds of the river below, a songbird symphony and distant ocean waves, . Early morning rains bring amazing rainbows stretching across the valley. There is an enclosed indoor lanai that overlooks the valley and a large open outdoor lanai with a BBQ and the same vast unobstructed valley and mountain views.
The home is built to optimize trade wind flow so the temperature stays comfortable even on the warmest of days. Each room has windows overlooking valley , jungle and mountain. Lush tropical vegetation abounds such as red, pink, white gingers, orchids, green, yellow and red palms.. sacred ti's and much much more.
There are many cove like beaches within a 1/4 mile to 4 miles of the home such as Hanalei Bay, Lumaha'i, Tunnels, Ke'e as well as some local less known and less frequented spots. If you like to explore or photograph each day is a gift. The Na Pali coast with its famous Kalalau trail is 2 miles away. Hanalei town is about an 8 minute drive away where you can find little restaurants from casual to very high end and lots of little shops as well as a few night life spots.
The home is about 1400 sq ft of space with 2 large bedrooms, set off on each end of the large open living room. There is a third sleeping area with a single day bed in the enclosed indoor lanai. Guests often comment that they love that area for lounging and reading
The home has a small ohana unit in the lower half which is separate and private with its own entrance, bathroom and lu'au kitchen. It can be included if more space is desired.

Keywords: Exotic Hilltop Jungle home with awesome views of the mountains, jungle and valleys.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: I am a nurse, photographer & writer. I've travelled the world in my lifetime and lived in unusual and intriquing places. I settled in Kauai a few years back because i found it to be a ' sacred world apart'. I lived here with my daughter until life and the mainland called to her. The home is in a special area known by the locals to have ' good mana'. So when I say it is whispered that dreams can come true here, I am serious, if you can tune in that is. Although the house was eventually too big for me alone, I choose to stay here and share the magic it offers. I have rented it now for almost 8 years and have met vacationers from all around the world and every walk of life. . Its magic seems to attract , for the most part, unique and delightful people and I feel blessed by that. The tranquility of the property and the gentle sounds of water and birds make writing and daydreaming easy. The local people are full of life and heart. You can learn the meaning of aloha here just by hanging out with them. In my travels I was drawn to the richness of life, the multifacited human experience, so Kauai has been perfect for me. Aparently it is one of the most diversely populated places in America. Hanalei is not for those who seek a bland, homogenous experience. I say that to warn off any travellers who would fare better the resort hotel vacation. This is a safe place, probably as safe as any you can find, but it is not sterile. Someone might yell at you when you '' hog' the bridge, and once in awhile you hear a wild boar hunt way off in the jungle or a sky shaking thunderstorm passes through , leaving us sparkling clean and wide awake. My life has not always been easy but it has been a good teacher. It has taught me to be open to it, to be more, rather than less, to hear the whole forest of birds sing and not miss out because I'm irritated by one rooster's morning crow. Kauai is perfect for that kind of ' adventure' . It is saturated with sacredness.

                  Why the Owner Chose Hanalei:
                  We choose this property because I was very ill when I moved to Kauai and needed a place to try and heal. I immedately knew that this place was special and if I could recover anywhere it would be here. Within months my health began to improve and now 10 years later I am healthy again. I know in my heart of hearts it was because of the magic that is here.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I enjoy all the benefits that I have mentioned already. I forgot to mention though that this place is never without a story, a new screen play or a new experience of some multileveled kind. If you are a photographer you will never lack the perfect picture. They are constantly unfolding everywhere. If you want to be part of the community here you can get involved. There is a lot going on to get involved in. There is an ongoing development and encouragement towards sustainable living and best of all there is a spark of a movement back to the old ways of Ohana ( shared living and caring) kuleana (respect and responsibilty) and aloha..which is heart.
