About Kerstin Preyasi Exter
We sailed to Hawaii from the South Pacific in 1991 and the Island welcomed us so much that we are still here today! We love to travel and explore new places preferably from a nice , home-like base. We used our travel experiences to create a welcoming home away from home for you.
We are cabinet makers by trade and have included our expertise as well as our love for detail and beauty into our home.
We love local food and gourmet cooking so our kitchen is very well equipped .
We support sustainability- we have solar power ( with electric back up), we compost and recycle, we have herbs, nuts and fruit in out garden that we are happy to share with you.
We both meditate and Kerstin practices yoga. We are very happy to share our Yoga and Meditation Shala with our guests.
Kerstin Preyasi Exter purchased this house in 1998
Why Kerstin Preyasi Exter chose Hawi
We love this community because it is laid back, rural and real. People know each other here ! This is a beautiful, lush and tropical region of the Big Island and we take pleasure in living Hawi.
What makes this house unique
The Zen-style home is private and romantic. We have 2 ponds and a waterfall around the house and one of the biggest pleasures is to sit in the soaking tub in the morning and watch the lotus open in the pond. Having evening cocktails on the lanai and a nice al fresco dinner is not too bad either!
If you like beautiful woodwork and attention to detail you will love it here. We have put our expertise and our hearts into creating this home and garden.
Guestbook comments from the owner
You know how sometimes the pictures are far better than the actual place...well not so in this case. The cottage is amazing, very large, clean and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed cooking in the large kitchen and lounging on the lani. I highly recommend staying at either one of the Exter rentals. Their attention to detail is outstanding as is their organization and impecable communication with coordinating your stay.
We can't wait to go back next year!" - Nipomo CA
