Waimea studio description

A show case Dome home now available for nightly rental. Where the NaPali meets the Waimea River. This 1 bedroom studio in the main house with its own private entrance and lanai with kitchenette is very quiet and very private and only for a select few. If you are looking for peace and quiet, this property offers a cloud like atmosphere, real Hawaii'ana, and it is as laid back and small town as it gets. New memory foam bed with very high thread count sheet. Sleep in peace like you have never slept before.
THIS IS A DUPLEX WITH YOU ON ONE SIDE AND ME ON THE BACK SIDE WITH 100% COMPLETE PRIVACY. THERE ARE NO OTHER GUESTS ON THE PROPERTY AT THE TIME OF YOUR VISIT. THERE IS NO ONE UPSTAIRS NOR DOWN STAIRS. THIS IS NOT A MULTI UNIT PROPERTY WITH SHARED ANYTHING. IF YOU PREFER TO LISTEN TO BIRDS RATHER THAN OTHER GUESTS THIS IS THE ONLY OPTION IN WAIMEA VALLEY.
We are located just a few short miles from the base of the Waimea Canyon, also known as the 'Grand Canyon of the Pacific' with it's ever changing hues and colors.


Enjoy the soothing sounds from 'The Menehune Ditch' as it passes through the hollow lava cliff before ascending into a waterfall that feeds the live water pond just outside your front door. The tranquility of this valley radiates from the cliffs and from the river, you can almost hear echoes of voices from times gone by. Walk to the back of the property and relax by the river or hike up the river into the true back country. Or just lounge on the lanai enjoying the gentle flowing water, gazing at the cliff while listening to birds of all kinds and the .

We are close to the most beautiful beaches on Kauai...Barking Sands and Polihale State Park, and you cannot beat the sunsets in the West. Only a few miles further up the road you will experience a birds eye view of the world famous NaPali Coast from Koke'e National Park.
A few short miles or less up the road brings you to the ruins of an old Russian Fort built when an unsuccessful attempt was made by the Russians to take control of Hawaii. And in the middle of Waimea Town you will see the site and the beach where Captain Cook landed and became, the first westerner to visit the Hawaiian Island.

Owner Description: I fell in love with Kauai during my first vacation here in Dec 1999/Y2K. I decided to stay. I built my childhood dream dome in the back county where horses are not only common, they roam free, often stopping at my house to snack.
I made a movie of the building of this dome, there is a short version streaming on you tube just do a search for monolithic dome homes and you will see me!!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: I designed this house when I was 7 years old and built it with my own hands in 2008 after living in a tent on the land for a year. I also made a short movie about the building which is streaming on youtube if you search for monolithic dome homes... mine is one of the first videos that are listed. There are amazing laughing birds called Erckels Frankcolins that are just awesome.

                          Why the Owner Chose Waimea:
                          The moment I saw the land I knew it was for me.... it was quiet, private and it grabbed my heart like a young Donnie Osmond.... hahahaha (giving my age away!)
