Property description

Paradise found, wrapped up in a sea of tropical fruit trees with things to pick and devour in every direction, This Artful Balinese inspired home feels like it's deep in the jungle even though it's a 2 minute drive to a beautiful black sand beach . Stained glass ,indian tile and tropical wood , flow between treasures from around the world . Hammocks to feel the soft breezes and hear the sweet music of swaying bamboo make it hard to venture out and explore the exquisite surroundings .
The Property can sleep 4-6 , has a full kitchen , soaking tub , separate shower and lots of outside deck space .

The property is home to some adorable geckos who faithfully gobble up mosquitoes that stray into the house when the door is open! Geckos are found in practically every home in Hawaii and they complete the Hawaiian experience.

Massage is avail onsite along with fasting and other organic meal plans
Within a short drive north along the Red Road are numerous attractions: Kalani Retreat Center, Geothermally heated swimming and snorkeling areas including Ahalanui Park and the Kapoho Tide Pools; and the beautiful Oceanside McKenzie State Park. Within a 5 minute drive south on the Red Road is Kalapana, where the road ends at the most recent lava flows. There you will find the Kalapana Café and Uncle Robert’s Kava Bar, as well as guided lava walks and a trail across the lava fields to the new beach. The property itself is a rich adventure with Orange, tangerine, lime, and meyer lemon trees produce abundantly just outside. Fig, loquat, dragon fruit, soursop, starfruit, and loads of avocado , papaya and bananas coexist with uncountable varieties of tropical flowers .

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I am a designer and writer living between San Francisco, Hawaii, Austin and Taos with frequent trips to India. I love animals and nature. I'm also a huge fan of mountain biking, snowboarding and yoga. We put lots of love and thought into our home in Kipuka and feel deeply honored to get to share it with you. Looking forward to being in touch and getting to hear your story as well. Warmly, Justin

Why the Owner Chose Kehena:
I was living between San Francisco and Maui the first time I visited lower puna. It was and still is the most beautiful ,magic spot I've found on the planet .I put an offer on the then very basic house because of it's magnificent gardens . When I returned to San Francisco I put both my Maui and Bay area house on the market and prepared to move .During my first few years on the island I was spending a lot of time in bali so I commissioned carving artists to make custom doors to be used throughout the house as well as picking up lots of interesting furnishings. I also brought in stained glass and hand made glass tile from around the world to allow the light and feeling of the house to change throughout the day . My friend Bhakti , a designer , chef and amazing bodyworker collaborated with me on the design and is currently the caretaker in residence

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's a jungle feast with serenading accompaniment from the coqui frogs!
