Justin purchased this house in 2001
Why Justin chose Kehena
I was living between San Francisco and Maui the first time I visited lower puna. It was and still is the most beautiful ,magic spot I've found on the planet .I put an offer on the then very basic house because of it's magnificent gardens . When I returned to San Francisco I put both my Maui and Bay area house on the market and prepared to move .During my first few years on the island I was spending a lot of time in bali so I commissioned carving artists to make custom doors to be used throughout the house as well as picking up lots of interesting furnishings. I also brought in stained glass and hand made glass tile from around the world to allow the light and feeling of the house to change throughout the day . My friend Bhakti , a designer , chef and amazing bodyworker collaborated with me on the design and is currently the caretaker in residence
What makes this house unique
It's a jungle feast with serenading accompaniment from the coqui frogs!
Guestbook comments from the owner
This home was absolutely paradise in Puna Palisades. We were greeted with a great massage who was only in town once a month. It was the best massage I have ever had. We cracked every bones and knots in my body that was clogged. The house was well designed and pleasant. The only thing were the ants. But I suppose that is expected from staying in the jungle.
