Interaction with guests
When you stay at our home it will be as if it is your own little paradise. No one living under you or even very close to you. Privacy at it's utmost. We want you to choose how you would like to interact with us. We know how busy life gets and we're not about nagging or checking in on you, but we do like payments to be on time and respect paid to our home. We have care takers and house keepers that will be available in the event something goes amiss and we encourage our guests to let us know when that happens and how our staff treated them. It's about the experience and we want you to have a fantastic vacation.
Other things to note
Our home is primarily off the grid. Blue Hawaii uses the sun for power, has its own 10K gallon rainwater catchment with filtration system, septic tank, and we take our garbage to the dump at Mile marker 98/99. We are using mother nature to survive. If it isn't raining we don't get water. If it's cloudy we don't get power. With that said we hope you'll take shorter cooler showers, don't run the water while washing dishes, brushing your teeth/shaving, wash only full loads of clothing - hang dry your laundry so you can to catch that tropical lush plumeria scent to take home with you, and put the dishwasher on "Energy Saver", and uncheck the heated dry cycle.
THIS IS A NON-SMOKING & NON-VAPING PROPERTY.

Please use your towels more than twice. Abide by the 26-minute cycles suggested on both washer & dryer if used. Air dry when possible. Please do not put anything in the dryer that has not been washed thoroughly first.
About our Water: The water your are using is rainwater that has come from the roof of the house into a 10k gallon multi-filtered catchment system below the house. It is ultra filtered and fine for bathing, laundry, and washing dishes, but not that tasty to drink. Use the filtered bottled water provided in the water dispenser for drinking. Additional bottles are kept in the laundry room. If you should run out of bottled water please take the empty bottles to the filling station at the Ho'Okena turn off north of the property at Mile Marker 101 to refill them and return to the house for use. Please do not lose the lids. At the end of your stay if there are empty water bottles, please place them in the laundry room with the other bottles.
Conserve our Water: Please limit your showers and do not “run” water when brushing teeth/shaving or washing dishes. Try not to run the dishwasher or laundry if not a full load. If you should experience any type of water loss, pipe shaking noises, please turn off all water, stop flushing toilets and call us immediately.
Septic: The septic system is very effective; however, it will clog up if improper material is flushed. Please be sparing with toilet paper and DO NOT FLUSH anything other than toilet paper. No feminine hygiene products should be flushed at anytime. If it is found that feminine products have been flushed and clog the septic system, you could be charged damages of up to $2,500.00. In the event you have problems with the plumbing please contact us and our staff will come to assist you. There are plungers in the laundry room and both bathrooms.
Outdoor BBQ: The BBQ is an electric grill meant to cook on. Please turn off and unplug when not in use. Clean with a moist microfiber towel and BBQ Cleaner under Kitchen sink. Please don’t allow any grease build up. Place cover on when cool. Use the BBQ utensils and cleaners available in the kitchen in the lower cabinet to the right of the oven, bottom shelf.
Item Location: We have painstakingly labeled a majority of areas throughout the home to make it easier for you to find things and to learn about the home during your stay. Please try to use these labels as a guide to where things need to go back to. Please take care of our belongings. Please wipe all small appliances down with a moist soft towel after using and before putting away. Please don't use sharp knives to chip ice in the sink without placing the gray cutting board in first, don't use the silicon baking sheets as cutting boards, or place items in the microwave or dishwasher that are not meant to be there, such as melamine plates in the microwave and KitchenAid knives in the dishwasher. Please do not take anything home with you that you didn't bring with you. It is cost prohibitive to share this home with others when visitors take items from it. Even the smallest thing like a washcloth, knife, or pair of scissors is expensive to replace. We also realize that things happen and things break or are damaged due to unforeseen circumstances. In that event, a simple heads up call or email is appreciated.
Furniture Usage: Please treat the furniture gently. Please use the coaster sets to protect the living room tables. Do not sit on the leather sofa or either of the living room chairs with lotions or oils on. Cover with a towel first. Please clean up spills immediately. Wipe cabinets and doors with a moist microfiber towels when smudged or sprayed on. Don't let children mark up our furniture or place food or drinks on them directly.
With all that said - We do want you to have an incredible time while at Blue Hawaii. We only ask you treat her with respect and aloha. We want you to think of her as your home away from home so you will want to come back to see her again and she'll look the same as the first time you walked in the front door and went, "Now this is what I'm talking about! Look at that view!".

Our busy lives working in the Silicon Valley Event Production and Surgical fields left little time to enjoy our vacations, so as we started to approach retirement age we wanted to find a home we could enjoy and share for years to come. So when the opportunity finally presented itself, we jumped on it. We call our little piece of heaven 'Blue Hawaii'. And when you see it you'll know why.
