Hale Keko (“The Monkey House”) is located at the end of a cul-de-sac in the upscale Princeville resort community on the northern shore of Kaua’i. Upon pulling up to the property, what immediately stands out is the thoughtfully manicured landscaping, the driveway surrounded by billowy palm trees, and the flora bursting with colors. The front porch is a nice place to lounge on the handcrafted solid wooden bench, absorbing the peaceful neighborhood milieu.
Once inside, the open-layout of the house welcomes you in immediately: beautiful hardwood floors, high ceilings, plentiful natural lighting, and the wings of the house all flow together easily to coalesce in the living room and kitchen. Everywhere is evidence of the house’s themes of monkeys & turtles. There are all kinds of statuettes: a serene copper Buddha, a wooden carved dragon, a colorful glass parrot, and beautifully framed pictures of local spots on Kauai. A cozy tropical flower-covered bamboo constructed couch faces a flat-screen TV with cable & DVD player. There's at least three dozen DVDs to choose from, and beneath them is a shelf full of board games. The living room has seating for five, comfortably.
The kitchen features all stainless steel modern appliances. In the dining room, artwork abounds, and the theme is the honu (Hawaiian Sea Turtle). Three copper framed smaller works feature these noble creatures, and one larger oil on canvas piece paints a gorgeous scene of several honus.
The master bedroom features a king-sized bed, louvered windows, sliding glass door entry to back yard, beautiful handcrafted wooden furniture, plentiful artwork, his & hers walk-in closets, and a bathroom fit for Hawaiian royalty; marble floor tiles and granite vanity, spacious Jacuzzi and separate walk-in shower. Tasteful artwork finishes off the ambiance to create an ideal place to start and end the day. The other two bedrooms have queen size beds.
There really are endless adventures to be had nearby: in addition to the world class surfing (and instructors), there’s horseback riding, ATV & helicopter tours, snorkeling & whale watching expeditions, and much, much more. Visit www.KauaiFunActivities.com to start taking your fun seriously!
Large backyard lanai features a barbecue and seating protected from the elements by an overhang. The back yard is meticulously landscaped. Hang out on the lanai listening to the exotic birds. The view of Kauai’s stunning Bali Hai mountain range is really spectacular.
