Punaluu house description

Fare Tamanu is our 'green' vacation home close to the beach, mountains and the famed North shore. Our property borders a 40 acre farm and the Sacred Falls park. In front of the house is a large field ideal for children to play and a safe distance from the highway. It is very quiet and relaxing. A nice sandy beach is a three minute walk and is usually deserted. This is a 2 story property with approximately 3200 square feet under the roof including covered lanais. Upstairs is a large wraparound lanai which facilitates outdoor living.

We enjoyed building this unique home, and tried to be as green and energy efficient as possible. We use solar power, propane gas appliances, and on-demand gas water heater to reduce our energy footprint. There is no air conditioning, as the house is cooled by the tradewinds, and circulating fans. We used recycled windows, doors, counters, travertine, and marble which give our house an 'old/new' feel.

Our steam room is a unique feature, and the nearby wooden hot tub is a wonderful area to soak under the stars.

All bedding and pillows have hypo-allergenic encasements that block dust mites, bed bugs, and are certified for allergy and asthma protection. This house is clean.

Downstairs has some accommodation for those with disabilities i.e. bars in the bathrooms, no thresholds etc. and lots of open space. The steam room, hot tub and outside shower are conveniently located near the stairwells on the bottom floor.

Punalu'u is for those who wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. There are no major shopping centers, but there is a good grocery store about 5 minutes away. There are various small mom and pop restaurants, and convenience stores nearby.

Our kids love it as there is plenty of space to run around in. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About the owner: We are a family of five, my wife and three kids. We enjoy the beach and the country. We live in Honolulu and this is our get away spot.

                          Why the Owner Chose Punaluu:
                          We liked the area as it has an outer island feel even though it's only 45 minutes from Honolulu.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          We like the peacefulness of the area. For me it always a stress reliever to get out to Punaluu. Even the drive out there is very relaxing. Being close to the ocean, as well as having beautiful views of the mountains and surroundings is what makes this a great place to be.
