Oceanfront cottage on very private 1 acre. Tidal pools to explore and cool down, while the waves crash into the reef you experience the freshness and invigorating effervescence of the fresh clean ocean bath.
Wander from your cottage through the grassy lawns, down the rock wall staircase, follow the black sand paths to the beach sand that has been deposited around the reef.
Photograph, fish, whale watch, catch the glimmer of spinner dolphins and sea turtles bobbing in the surf.
Watch the colorful sunrise over the ocean, the glow of the volcano in the distant night sky as you count your lucky stars and watch the bright moon rise.
The spacious studio has a comfy memory foam overlay on a queen bed with luxurious 550 thread count sheets to crawl into after a day of exploring the tidal pools in front of the property.
