Kaloko Gardens Retreat is locally owned and operated by a marine biologist who is a visiting scholar at an Ivy League university and has lived in the islands for many years. He designed the house and the estate to harmonize with the natural beauty of Hawaii, furnished it with art collected from world travels and expeditions, then provided amenities for optimal work or pleasure in quiet seclusion, making it ideal for visitors looking for the combination of sustainable luxury and a genuine experience of island lifestyle.
