WELCOME TO 'NANI MOANA HALE' (Beautiful Ocean Home)...
At last you have arrived at your Hawaiian getaway. You’ve been looking forward to this very moment for some time now. You pull through the gated entry and the first thing you notice is the lovely tropical landscaping…citrus fruit trees, banana trees, a plumeria tree bursting with fragrant yellow blooms, a striking fuchsia-colored bougainvillea, tree ferns, orchids and bird of paradise. You hurry to the front door of the house. As soon as you step over the threshold you see and hear the surf. It’s breathtaking; even more beautiful than you imagined. With all the jalousie windows and wall-to-wall sliders open, the sea breeze quietly rushes in and whispers a bashful “hello” as it envelopes you and begins luring you to the backyard. You take your shoes off so you can feel the soft green lawn under your toes; step-by-step you are beckoned to the seawall. The trade winds now serenade you, acting as a maestro in this well rehearsed event, playfully welcoming your arrival as the cluster of coconut palms begin to dance and sway as if they were merely puppets on a string. A few local birds hover above navigating the winds, while a few others hop around the lawn whistling their songs and a crab cautiously peeks over the seawall. You step from the lawn to the soft, velvety sand and each of your toes sink into the sun kissed warmth. At last you rest yourself on the seawall and you are greeted by the restless and waving sea. Crashing wave-after-crashing wave, the sea is teasing and taunting, like a child imploring you to play…you feel the sea water mist your face as you anticipate the next big wave rolling toward you… You are in awe by the beauty that surrounds you in this moment. Few things will rivet one, like the beauty of moving water. It is truly and unequivocally mesmerizing. You feel like you’ve been taken back to a different time and place…the old Hawaii, from times gone by. You find yourself gazing at the sea, smiling at the dancing palms and deeply inhaling the healing sea air. In the back of your mind, you wonder, ‘If I gaze long enough, will I be able to memorize and forever etch this beautiful dream into my memory?’ You break free from the magical trance and wander back to the house to see what you passed by on your way out to say “Aloha” to the sea.
As you enter the lanai you feel the cool tile under your feet. It’s refreshing. This cozy room features two separate seating areas and a volcanic rock fireplace. You decide that this is the perfect place to read that novel that you brought along. As you enter the living room through the vintage glass doors, you are impressed by the spacious feeling that the open floor plan provides. The living room is also a peaceful place to sit back and relax. As you stand there, taking it all in, you notice how the soft colors of the cottage-like walls make you feel…you begin to unwind, stretch a little, smile a little. As you stretch, reaching upwards, you notice the vaulted ceiling and then admire the lovely bamboo media center with the widescreen television …you think to yourself, ‘I’ll catch up on some of those movies I’ve been meaning to watch.’ From the living room, you walk toward the kitchen, passing by the little rattan desk and the dining table for four. As lovely as the dining table is, you’ve already planned on having breakfast, lunch and dinner out at the dining table near the seawall, tucked under the cluster of coconut trees…you stop to look out at that little table for four and begin to daydream about a breakfast served up of sliced tropical fruits: bananas, pineapple, mango, papaya, coconut and perhaps some Kona coffee and local Portuguese sweet bread...mmmmm, can’t wait…you get excited about visiting the local farmers market for the best produce. You know that one of the highlights of your getaway will be the spectacular sunrises each morning, off to the East over Honolulu, Waikiki and Diamond Head. What a beautiful way to start each day. And then, there’s lunch and dinner…more delicious meals to enjoy. Most of Hawaii’s foods are influenced by the cultures of the Pacific Islands and several parts of Asia…let’s see, there is Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Filipino, Samoan, Thai, Vietnamese, Portuguese and Puerto Rican… You know what your favorites are and that you’ll broaden your horizons by trying some new cuisine while on the island. One thing is for sure, the dining table out at the seawall is the best table in the house and you have it every night of the week! You daydream a little more…’a romantic seaside luau for two…tiki torches lit, perhaps a local Hawaiian wine from the big island, perfectly paired to the evenings cuisine and the sunset at Barbers Point, just off to the West’… The coolness of the tile under your bare feet brings you back to where you left off…You wander down the hall and scope out the three bedrooms. Each one is cozy, inviting and perfectly coordinated with island décor. The master bedroom, however, has one thing that the other two rooms do not…an expansive view of the great blue Pacific. It’s then that you realize…there is an ocean view from nearly every room in the house; the lanai, living room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom. The neutral palette of this tastefully decorated getaway is just what you’d hoped for, as you ease, ever further, into a relaxed mode. The light and airy atmosphere is inviting, charming and delightful. Rattan furnishings with tropical prints and Asian accents throughout, gently and gracefully remind you, room-by-room that you are indeed, in a tropical paradise. Welcome friends, you have arrived at your home-away-from-home, Hawaii-style.
