'Hale 'O Imi Loa' (Hawaiian for 'House of Christopher', and named after our son Chris) is located in a quiet, remarkably beautiful residential area of Princeville, in a charming cul-de-sac with a view of Makana Mountain, renowned for the 'Bali Hai' rock, recognized in dozens of Hollywood movies. If peace and quiet is your thing, this is the place for you. Best described as modest, cozy, quiet, and cottage-like. Access (either through hiking, walking, or driving) to major attractions is literally minutes away: island helicopter tours, horseback riding, golfing, zipping, scuba diving, beaches
Privacy and quiet are the hallmarks of this home, and is a major reason they decided to own it. Staying here has more of a 'this is what it feels like to live in Hawaii' quality and less like being surrounded by hustle and bustle. The property is very child-friendly, has a variety of huge palm trees, and numerous varieties of flora and fauna. The swishing of palm trees and the soft sound of occasional showers adds to a truly unique tropical experience. Tables and chairs in both front and back yards (grass in the backyard, red bricked patio in the front) invite breakfast, dinner, relaxation.
There is a park behind this home and property where you can take long walks and enjoy jogging and running. This is a wonderful place to enjoy the great outdoors and children and grandchildren can play and have fun too. There are tables in both the front and back yards as well as one by the BBQ for your convenience while grilling. Youngsters (and youngsters at heart) just love to play ball in the wide open space.
You will certainly appreciate the convenience of the lovely Hawaiian-style fully curtained garden shower just off the lanai. It's great for rinsing off after coming home from the beach.
The Owner is a retired Pediatric Nurse and especially wants children of all ages to enjoy her home. She has provided toys for all ages from babies all the way to teenagers. If you would like to speak with the owner of this property about the home, please let us know.
Guest comments: "Very comfortable home. Everything we need is here. The house is cozy in a very nice area. We feel at home and like all the books about Kauai, books to read and very good collection of DVDs." Edward G., California
"Beautiful home which suited our needs for our stay. Spacious & close to beaches & shopping. Very quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed the seclusion yet not being too far from things." Amy M., Florida
"We are a family of three with a 2-yr. old. This home was perfect for our time on Kauai...I was also able to enjoy two books out of the owner's library. We could have packed much lighter considering it is a well-stocked house in a convenient location to the Princeville shopping center...A perfect, tranquil setting that we hope to visit again and again. Thank you so very much for sharing your home with us." Allison K., California
