Off the kitchen, you'll find a shared Energy Star front loading washer & dryer, using only natural suds that are provided for your use ~~
We have made every effort for our home to be ~~GREEN!!!~~ When building we used NO VOC paints & renewable bamboo flooring throughout. We used diatomaceous earth under the floor boards to help control pests. Only natural cleaning products are used to clean our home and these are available for your use. They include natural & scent free laundry soap, dishwashing liquid, organic cleaners, made on Kauai hand soap & natural toilet paper. Your table is set to use cloth napkins with bamboo placemats.

This is a fragrance and smoke free home. Natural botanical's are fine. Please be sure to have your items completely free of these substances before your arrival.
You will love the many organic fruit trees including: coconut, avocado, sour sop, lime, papaya's, banana, surinam cherry, mango, orange, lemon,mt apple & noni, depending upon season. A hammock is available farther down the rolling lawn under 2 shady mango trees, where you can listen to the song of the river and waterfall, below the property. For the adventurous there is access to this beautiful secluded waterfall nestled between state land, where you can take the plunge into its remote pool. Numerous hiking trails nearby off our country roads that lead to more private pools & waterfalls.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Excerpts from a thank you card received,
Dear Holly & Rick,
I wanted to thank you so much for your hospitality. Your home and property are amazing. We had such a wonderful time. Should we find ourselves fortunate enough to visit again, we will definitely want to stay with you. We thoroughly enjoyed the fresh fruit and all the equipment in the sports shack! We were able to experience so many beautiful places while we were there. After all we had been through before our arrival, it was such a blessing to find time to heal in such an amazing place. May God bless and keep you well. The world would be a better place with more wonderful people like you. In love, D & M
