A Well Loved Property

When the developers of this property first purchased this property, the valley was dense jungle. They slowly began to clear the property keeping a selection of larger common mango trees, and kukui trees. The original owners cleared home sites for the Ocean House and the Sky House. They planted beautiful gardens and an orchard. The owners lovingly constructed the two homes. They hand selected timbers for the homes, laid mosaic tiles for the pools and bathrooms and carved tikis in support posts.
