Beautiful mountain rain forest views can be seen from several rooms and it features koa wood cabinets, granite counters, numerous ceiling fans, and now, fully carpeted, complimentary wireless computer broadband access.

The house has two queen-size beds, one queen-size futon sofabed, and a separate couch to sleep a permitted maximum of 5-6 guests (12+ with both houses on property).

In less than 90 seconds walk you are on beautiful, clean, sandy and secluded Anini Beach, noted for its double reef making it one of the safest beach in Hawaii for swimming & snorkeling, kayaking, sunbathing, wind surfing etc. The sound of the birds in the trees surrounding the house is a soothing reminder of the lush forest so nearby.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We are Leslie and Bob Weatherwax from Granite Bay and Lake Tahoe, California. We own Anini Ohana Hale and the other home on the property, Hale La'au Pohaku. Bob is a semi-retired Founder/CEO of an energy consulting firm since 1981and Leslie is a retired speech therapist in public schools. Our six children are grown and now we live with the two youngest 'adultolescent' sons and FOUR lively dogs (two Shelties, 1 Patterdale terrier & a new Golden puppy). We also have eight grandchildren, of whom the youngest two are adopted orphans from Ethiopia. We love to travel, and have enjoyed many adventures on every continent except Antarctica. We especially love the tropics. And of French Polynesia, The West and East Indies, the Amazon basin, Papua New Guinea, tropical Queensland, sub-Saharan Africa and all the Hawaiian Islands, we think Kaua'i is the most beautiful!. We enjoy bird and now whale watching, gardening, kayaking, snorkeling and swimming. In addition, Leslie loves to quilt and has made about 30 tropical wall hangings and bedspreads for both our homes in Kaua'i.

Why the Owner Chose Kilauea, HI, USA:
We fell in love with Anini Beach when we were on our honeymoon 30 years ago! We discovered it quite by accident and felt that if we ever had the resources to buy a home there we would feel blessed. In the meantime, we rented several homes on Anini for family vacations. Our kids learned to snorkel there, and three of our children went on to become certified divers. The beautiful lagoon reminded us very much of some Tahitian- Society islands, our other favorite paradise. We especially loved the lagoon with its many shades of blue and green, the false kamani trees, the waves crashing over the reef, and the view of Kilauea lighthouse in the distance. By choosing to buy property on Anini, we knew we could enjoy the beautiful scenery, swim, snorkel and kayak in the lagoon, sit and watch the spectacular summer sunsets. We also liked the tranquility of Anini, but appreciated the fact that it's only five minutes or so to Princeville or Kilauea. We've also enjoyed snorkeling and have seen many turtles, spotted eagle rays, an octopus, and many moray eels in addition to the countless tropical fish.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is so close to the beach! Just a minute's walk down the picturesque beach path and you're there! It's near enough to bring the kayak, the cooler, beach chairs; although, Leslie often just brings a good book and a cup of coffee! We love to sit on the lanai and admire the many shades of green and all the different kinds of palm trees. We enjoy tropical gardening and and have plumeria trees, heliconias, anthuriums, hibiscus, and many others. Leslie is also experimenting with water gardening! Also on the lanai is our bird feeder, which attracts cardinals, doves and raucous java sparrows. The big backyard is great for children to play and their parents can watch from the lanai. Inside our Hawaiian cottage are two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room and a 'bonus' room that can be used for sleeping or watching TV. Leslie is always making more tropical quilts and gets inspired by her surroundings) and her enthusiasm has resulted in some of our guests visiting our great local fabric shops and designing their own quilts!
