It is approximately 2200 SF of living space plus a screened lanai, a second story lanai and an open dining patio. It's many large windows frame lovely tropical views and an ocean blue horizon. The two upstairs bedrooms sleep up to six: two in a queen bed; two in a full bed; one in each of two twin sized beds; The bedrooms share a covered lanai with views of the ocean a half mile away. The newly renovated bathroom has hand-cut stone tile from Indonesia and a luxury soaking tub/shower. The living room has 20 foot ceilings and a wall of windows. It's a bright and spacious place to curl up and enjoy a book or a movie. Many guests spend lots of time just enjoying the house and surroundings. The full sized, fully equipped kitchen is it's own unique space with a breakfast nook and an adjoining formal dining room. The antique dining table extends out for larger families. You can also dine on the covered patio complete with barbecue and outdoor fireplace. The walk down our road to Onomea Bay is one of the lovliest in all of Hawaii.
Our country retreat is comprised of three separate and private dwellings on five landscaped acres. The three dwellings are adjoined by covered breezeways, each entirely private from one another. My wife and I live in the 'master cottage'. We can provide you with touring guidance, directions, dining suggestions and of course just help out if you need an extra pillow or blanket.
If you need accommodations for more than 6, the Garden Suite at Onomea is a smaller cottage rental (see HomeAway Property # 371622) The two accommodations can be rented together by special arrangement. Together, the main house and the suite sleep up to 9.
The Grand Suite at Onomea is best suited to 4 adults, 2 couples, or families up to 6 with younger children. There are several photo angles of the bedrooms but please note that there are just the two bedrooms and the one full bath upstairs plus a half bath downstairs (not included in photos).

Why Randall Duryea chose Pepeekeo
This is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in all of Hawaii. It is gorgeous here, and we'd love to share it with you.
What makes this house unique
Our place is peaceful... We are on the rainier side of Hawaii. It's never particularly hot here, never cold, though it might get chilly enough to grab a cotton sweater or flannel shirt early in the morning. The air is soft and full of the smell of flowers. The rivers and waterfalls speak to the rain, the rain responds and the birds and crickets and tree frogs provide the chorus of life all around.
Guestbook comments from the owner
The house became our home away from home. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we have had. The eight nights at the house were wonderful. It has a kitchen that is fully stocked with anything a person could need or want. The owners Randall and Donna provided excellent hospitality. They were there when questions came up but were never intrusive. I had mentioned we planned on going boogie boarding and Donna left boogie boards out for us to use if needed. The views were spectacular! We woke up to blue skies, ocean view with beautiful trees (a living paradise). On the days that it rained we would sit in the living room and look at the beautiful water shimmering outside. The pictures in the posting are all accurate. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. We look forward to another vacation at this location. We would highly recommend renting this house for anyone's vacation.
