KILAUEA, KAUAI VACATION RENTAL: Located on the scenic North shore of Kauai, in Kilauea at the doorstep of the luxurious Princeville Resort lies the 4 bedroom and 3 bath Hale Mana Kilauea, a three acre multi-million dollar private estate. Hawaiian for “house of spiritual awakening” Hale Mana does not disappoint. This plantation style home is perched on a bluff with pristine, 360-degree views of the ocean, valley, mountains and river below. The valley itself is home to numerous ancient “heiaus” (Hawaiian places of worship) so sacred only the high priests and chieftains were allowed.
Here you can hike through a lava rock rain forest to a breathtaking, jaw-dropping waterfall. It is also home to a National Wildlife Refuge protecting rare and endangered avian species. During the day Tropic birds, frigate birds, Albatross, and Nene Geese circle high above the home as if to form a halo. And at nightfall, under a giant dome of starry wilderness, you can drift off to sleep to the melody of the nearby waterfalls. One of the most unique properties in the world – Kauai at its best!
All told, Kauai is NOT the hustle-bustle of Honolulu or the touristy madness of Maui. To visit Kauai and Hale Mana is to travel back in time to a bygone era, to a more peaceful and provincial existence, where words like on-ramps, freeways, and smog have yet to taint the universal consciousness. Its a place where skyscrapers are replaced by palm trees and busy intersections with one-lane bridges. And following closely in step are the islands most precious natural resource, its people. For them, words like community, family and neighbor are still spoken with reverence. Mainlanders call this warm phenomenon the “Aloha Spirit” and its as certain to welcome and embrace you at Hala Mana as are the prevailing trade winds.
