Bamboo Beauty, Yurt on Steroids and Beach Bungalow X 2!
I absolutely love uniquely designed hales; abodes that push the outside of the design envelope. And, in this case, size doesn’t matter! While attending the 2018 Tiny House Jamboree as a speaker promoting my book, My Year In A Yurt, I toured (and it didn’t take long) a one-of-a-kind tiny home that truly blew my socks off. That home-on-wheels sported a “sold” sign by the end of the 4-day event.

Let’s do bamboo
Known for its stunning beauty, tremendous strength, and environmentally healthy footprint, bamboo homes offer a glimpse into tropical living that must be seen in person to truly appreciate.
This newly constructed Pacific Sanctuary model by Bamboo Living was created with methods that blend time-honored bamboo craftsmanship with modern building and fabrication techniques. The fully fenced turnkey estate sits on 3 ½ acres within the Pepeekeo Point subdivision, and includes panoramic ocean views, small flowing stream and footbridge leading to a majestic banyan tree grove.
In addition to a 1764 sq ft living space which includes sky high vaulted ceilings, two bedrooms, a loft, 1 ½ bathrooms, and an 870 sq ft covered front and back lanai, the triangle shaped property includes a private gated entrance and 3-car garage. (Photo 3) Owning this unique home speaks volumes as to the importance of sustainability with attention to detail. Is it calling your name???

Not your basic beach bungalow
Location. Location. Location! It’s as important for the beach you frequent as it is for the home where you find respite. Serious beach lovers will find Beach 69 directly off Highway 19, just south of Kawaihae Harbor near Mile Market 69 and the Westin Hapuna Beach Resort.
Hui Pu is a rare find along the Kohala Coast!
This oasis is my very favorite beach for soaking up the sun’s rays on prestine white sand beaches, and swimming in its tucked away, Kiawe tree-lined coves. But, keep this just between us, okay?
As I stroll along the tree shaded shoreline that separates just a handful of premier properties from the stunning Pacific Ocean just a few steps away, I always pause to appreciate a property that, to me, says “Vintage Hawaii” all over it! I admire the beautiful high pitched rooflines, the circular covered lanai that offers that million dollar ocean view, and the way the trees provide just enough shade from the hot sun of the Kohala Coast.
Hui Pu is a true gathering place, located within a private gated subdivision of Waialea Bay, very close to Puako. Two homes are found on the 17,717 sq ft property. The front cottage includes a sleeping loft with upstairs and downstairs balconies.
The main home, also two-story, includes 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms providing equally spectacular ocean views.
Rock walls, outdoor showers, and a beautifully landscaped yard invite you to live outside as much as possible…and all just steps from the sand. Hapuna Beach is a short walk along the King’s Trail, and all the amenities of the Hapuna and Mauna Kea Resorts. A home on this beach is a rare find…and this home is one of the rarest!

Living in the round
You don’t have to live in a vinyl-sided yurt to enjoy the health benefits of round space living! (Studies indicate that you actually sleep better in “The Round.”)
Like a yurt on steroids!
This one-of-a-kind hard wall designed, multi-structured home takes the yurt concept to the highest level; like a yurt on steroids!
Located in The Meadows of Kohala Ranch, on the west side of the Big Island, and boasting spectacular ocean, neighboring island, and sunset views, this 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bathroom masterpiece features exposed tongue-in-groove ceilings and rafters leading to clear domes that let the sunlight brighten each space. A “U’ shaped floor layout provides 2320 sq ft of interior living, high-end finishes, photo voltaic power, and mature and water efficient landscaping. This may very well be the only home of its kind on our island! If living on the Kohala Coast, with its wide open spaces and fresh air speaks your language, step outside the design box and into this very unique form of island living!
