Haiku House Rental Photos and Description
WOW.... just gorgeous! Five bedroom upcountry estate.
PERMITTED - STPH 2013/0016 This is an exceptional upcountry property, suited to the most discriminating travelers. Very careful attention has been paid to every detail. Entry to the property is through a custom crafted bronze gate. The long driveway winds through a hedged area, to parking spaces at the back of the house. The first view of the house is looking through the glass walkways, across the fish ponds, to the pool and cabana area beyond. With it's unique Thai style, and quality cedar construction, the house is definitely architecturally pleasing, and a memorable structure. The entire four acre property is hedged or fenced, to provide a high level of privacy. A huge investment has been made in landscaping this property, resulting in hundreds of tropical plants and trees, flowers, citrus trees, and a variety of mature palm trees. Nestled within the wings of the house is a tropical fish pond with a variety of exotic fish and water lilies. Every area of this property has an interesting or special feature - from the garden for cut flowers, to the herb patch, to the 'spirit garden', to the reading chair tucked into a garden grove, each was created to enchant children and adults alike. The recreation area can keep you occupied for hours! To one side is a fully wind screened, regulation size tennis court with a viewing area. The forty foot swimming pool is surrounded by a flagstone patio. Sitting next to the pool is a large hot-tub, and a sauna. The pool cabana has a sink, small refrigerator, deluxe gas grill, and plenty of outdoor furniture. The house was designed with flexibility in mind. The main wing of the house offers three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, huge living/dining room, and a gourmet kitchen. There are plenty of windows giving the room a warm glow of light. The peaked roof is supported by two huge cedar pillars. Other features include wood floors, tiled kitchen and custom tiled bathrooms, granite and butcher block counters, Viking range, laundry, TV (recessed into the entertainment center), DVD, CD stereo, telephone, and answering machine. The front of the main living room opens to a covered deck, leading down to a platform at the edge of the fish pond.

We rented this property years ago and fell in love with it. On the spot we said that we'd love to have a chance to purchase it. That chance came in 2002, and we've considered ourselves fortunate ever since. This is the perfect place for us to gather our family and grandchildren. Whether it be afternoons in the pool, tennis matches on the court, or gathered around the dining table playing games... every moment is precious to us.
