'The Quilt House'
A Hawaiian quilt first seen is rarely forgotten. Not only does it possess a strikingly beautiful pattern, but an unexplainable quality which originates more from the spirit(mana) of the design and the stitches created by the quilter's hand. Na Kapa Kuiki Hale(The Quilt House) also possesses that same striking quality. While the design of the house is breathtakingly beautiful and rich in the beauty of all the Hawaiian Quilts seen in every room throughout the home...it's the mana, or spirit of the home, that is truly unforgettable.
Tastefully decorated with all Hawaiian decor, this home is ideal for families on a adventure, a couple wanting a quiet retreat, and for anyone who doesn't want to spend all of their money for a place to stay.
This home has 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, a large outside lanai for visitors to feel the light tradewinds blowing while basking in the sunlight through the ohi'a trees, and a large covered lanai equipped with a large charcoal BBQ and room for six at the main table for outside dinning. This property is located in a quiet neighborhood just a few miles from the eclectic town of Pahoa. There you will find many restaurants of all sorts, a handful of unique shops, Hawaii Counties nicest community pool (Free with Life Guards on duty), a Park, a Skate Park, and much more. Nearby are the ocean cliffs where you can enjoy all types of sea life too especially during the winter months. You can see humpback whales breaching or you could wake up early and view a spectacular sunrise rising over the Hilo coastline.
Its centrally located between all the sights on the Puna/Hilo side such as the lava flowing into the water, Wai Opae Fish Sanctuary, the Geothermal Hot Ponds, Volcano National Park, and there is a huge farmer's market on Sundays called Maku'u market just 5 miles away.
So come and delight in the sounds of nature as every evening you are serenaded by a chorus of Coqui frogs singing you to sleep with their unique lullaby. Awake each morning to the sounds of song birds as they welcome the new day and all the adventure it holds for you. Enjoy watching the Geckos play as they stand guard assuring you won't be 'bugged' during your visit.
Relax and rejuvenate as you revel in the mana of Na Kapa Kuiki Hale and all the aloha it has to offer.
I will never forget my first trip to Hawaii, November 2000. I stepped off the plane and the smell of the air, sweet and pungent was like nothing my senses had ever experienced. I could feel the 'aina call to my soul. I knew this was where I was meant to be. In 2009, I saw my dream come to fruition and I bought my dream home in paradise. I kept it hidden away from the rest of the world for several years, but have now decided that it is time to share it with those looking for a truly remarkable experience while visiting the Hawaii Island's magical east side. Not being a believer in New Year's resolutions, I have always chosen instead, to allow the year to reveal to me the lesson I am to learn. My lesson for 2013 is to learn to let go...to learn that some times when you share what you love the most, what you get back is greater than what you originally had. So, I am ready to share my hidden treasure with a world of travelers who deserve to experience what I have cherished for the last four years exclusively. Aloha, welcome to my home. Please enjoy your stay.
