Year Purchased: 1992
About the owner: We have enjoyed several months per year in our Puu Poa home since having completely remodeled it in 1996-1997.
We are retired from working in our own R&D company, from employment in a large US company and from being on the faculty of a major university. Coming originally from Germany, the European influence on the design of the interior of the property is apparent. Other design goals were achieving a light and airy internal environment. Direct and hot sunlight is avoided which, combined with louvered windows for 24-hour cross ventilation, keeps the interior comfortably cool.
The covered lanai with contemporary patio furniture and cooking/grilling facilities offers outdoor living at its finest.
Why the Owner Chose Puu Poa: We chose Puu Poa for several reasons besides the obvious ones, namely climate and lifestyle.
The condominium's structure is solid concrete (not primarily wood) and, thus, hurricane resistant. Our unit is on the ground floor 140 ft. above sea level (therefore tsunami proof) with extraordinary views of ocean, mountains, sunrises and sunsets,waterfalls and rainbows; provides direct access across the lawn to the swimming pool and has several beaches nearby. The 'backyard' invites sunbathing in front of our lanai. The lanai itself is one of the essential living spaces of our home.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Watching sunsets, whales, dolphins, tropical birds, sailboats and surfers directly from the lanai in the year-round mild climate; the easy access to site seeing, beaches, the swimming pool and to shopping for local food in farmers markets have made us fall in love with our niche in paradise. The serenity of our place is a treat we could not do without.
