                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: Retired Grammy wanting to share her beautiful Hawaii with you! Homeowner is friendly, knows every nook and cranny of the island and can point you in any direction you wish to go. Born and raised in Jamaica, she retired here in Hawaii after an amazing journey through life, which she will share with you if you ask--it will amaze you! While she lets you enjoy her home all to yourself, she will be happy to talk with you at length about her beautiful Hawaii, if you are so inclined.

                      Why the Owner Chose Hawaii Kai:
                      Lovely, quiet family neighborhood, tropical breezes, beautiful mountain, golf, ocean views, short walk to the beautiful Koko Head Botanical Gardens, where every type of Plumeria tree is on parade, gardening to her heart's content, yet close to shopping and easy to get into town. These are the reasons this place was the one for her.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      You'll love the corner lot with its space for children to run and play, its beautiful, tropical gardens (which Grammy will come by from time to time to water on a regular basis so you don't lose your blooms), and so close to everything you'd like to see or do. This is the best location you will find at this price.
