About the owner: Aloha thank you for visiting out vacation rental listing. My name is Laurie and the love of my life's name is Denny and we have been married for 20 years July 2014 but have been best friends for over 30 years! Denny was born on Oahu (not to give his age) back when it was still the “Territory of Hawaii”. Denny won a trip to the island of Kauai in 1992, which at that time we were only dating and he asked if I would accompany him. It was my first airplane ride all the way from Minnesota direct flight to the islands. Denny had not been back to his birth place since he left when he was very young and I had never been here. Oh my gosh from the moment we landed we both knew in our hearts this is where we wanted to spend our lives as much as we possibly could. We visited many of the islands throughout the years whenever financially we were able to. We loved them all but the island of Hawaii was our only pick of where we wanted to go to as we felt more at home here than anywhere else.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Centrally located within an hour drive to ALL of Puna’s special tourist sites, a short walk to the ocean, semi-secluded location in an upscale neighborhood and most importantly she was created for our guests and we hope to spoil our guests and make your vacation a truly memorable one!
