                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      Why the Owner Chose Hanalei:
                      Hanalei Bay is our dream location. We had been vacationing in Kauai for some time and were intrigued by buying on the island. Once we stumbled upon Hanalei's beach, we knew we found the location. We have a big family that loves to surf, sunbathe, swim, snorkel, walk/run on the sand, play beach volleyball, and living on the sand was our priority. The Dolphin house fits our expanding nuclear family of 6, and is on the sand. We found our dream!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                      Ocean front property is tough to come by. The large lawn leading to the sand is relaxing. We use the outdoor bbq regularly. We love the wi-fi, and high definition satellite TVs. New ipod docks built into every bedroom in the house connected to house wide speaker system. We are in close proximity to pretty much everything a Hawaii vacation offers.
