Unit is located within an attractive condominium complex on the island’s northwest shore called Paniolo Hale, which translates “Cowboy House” in Hawaiian. The units all have wrap-around, screened-in porches or lanais. When the French doors on the living room are open, the living space expands to include this semi-enclosed area effectively blurring the boundaries between interior and exterior space. It’s a great place to eat meals, read, overlook the ocean, or even sleep as a cool breeze blows and waves break gently in the distance.
Unit is a 5-minute walk to Kepuhi Beach (which it overlooks) and a 10-minute walk to Makehorse Beach.
Although the condominium complex dates back to 1980, the bathroom and kitchen have recently been renovated. Unit amenities include:
Washer & dryer,
Stainless steel electric stove with range,
Stainless steel refrigerator with filtered water and icemaker,
New dishes and glasses,
Hand-sewn quilts decorating the walls.

It is the Hawaiian custom that before entering a private home you remove
your shoes or sandals. This slows down the wear of the hardwood floors and
carpets and helps keep the sand out of the house.
