Welcome to Comfort and Relaxation! Here is the Master Suite

These pictures are of the Master Suite and bath. The King-size bed has a beautiful canoe-paddle headboard and a medium-firm mattress. The bedroom is very comfortable, and has a sliding glass door to the lanai.

Master Bedroom Paddleboard King

The bedroom has two side dressers and a larger handcrafted koa wood dresser shown here. Table lamps for reading are provided. There is ample closet space in all of the bedrooms, but especially the Master.

The lanai is pleasant both in the sun and in the shade. There is a large couch there that is a great place for a nap. The lanai is shady till mid-afternoon, after which it is sunny and bright. Wireless works throughout the unit, including here.

The bath has a lovely hotel-style arc shower curtain rod and an extra-large shower head. The condo is stocked with liquid soap, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner.


The Living Room

We've taken an open-plan approach, so the remodeled kitchen opens onto the dining room and living room.

The furniture is very cushy and comfortable, and the coffee table is kid-friendly (no sharp corners!).

The media center is across from the main seating area. There are two screened glass sliding doors that when opened, create a truly lovely cross-breeze.

The kitchen and dining area is fresh, clean and very well equipped

We've outfitted the kitchen with a wide variety of small appliances, sharp knives and a complement of pots and pans and cooking utensils that should suit most chefs' needs.

We also installed a dishwasher - which makes cleaning up a breeze.

We try to leave the kitchen with some of the basics - extra virgin olive oil, good balsamic vinegar, spices, condiments, plenty of ice, etc...and encourage our guests to do the same.

The Media Center

The media center has a lovely 42" sony LCD screen TV and a Blu-Ray Player. The is also a WD live HD device; pretty neat - it connects to Roku which has a Netflix account on it, so you can access quite a bit of content right then and there in addition to the Oceanic cable channels on the TV (including about 10 HD channels).  The Puako General Store (which is right next door) has a moderate selection of videos, including family-friendly selections. There is also a RedBox down at Mauna Lani near the Foodland grocery store that has newer movies too.

Other amenities - a very capable electric BBQ

The BBQ sits on the side balcony closest to the kitchen. It's very convenient and does an excellent job on fish, hot dogs, or some of the local grass-fed beef.  The only caveat is that you have to turn it on about 20-30 minutes before you want to cook on it as it takes a long time to warm up.

Our condo association doesn't let us have gas anywhere in the building, so an electric grill is our only option!

Lots of fun things to play with!

We've put a lot of beach and land toys in one of the closets - and you're welcome to use all of them.

To complement your beach adventures, we have beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers at your disposal. We also have several sets of snorkeling gear for both adults and children, boogie boards and some life vests and "floaty suits" for the wee ones.
