Relax as you breathe in the aura of your private refuge
for the most memorable vacation you'll ever have.
Enter this gracious open-plan home and have your breath taken away. Even as the
front door opens you will
find yourself delivered to - and surrounded by -
the beauty, serenity and spiritual power of Kealakekua Bay.
The water lapping at the back yard's rocks, is clear, cool and sparkling with sunlight. The awesome, cave pocked
cliff that makes up the opposite shore, is known as 'The Pali'. The trail along the ridge of the Pali, was to
the Hawaiians known as 'the pathway of the gods', or 'Kealakekua' in Hawaiian. At the pali's base th
Captain Cook Monument and a small plaque mark the spot where Cook fell
- - near a flashing beacon for modern nighttime mariners.
