Watch the cruise ships as they come in the early morning while you sip your morning coffee, and depart against the setting sun.
The first thing that will catch your attention as you enter this paradise retreat is the dramatic koi pond. As you walk over the pond the beautiful mature koi dance to welcome you in as you pass the gentle waterfall and the beautiful red wax palms. The graceful entry beckons you into the expansive great room, which opens up onto the enormous lanai which overlooks not only a million dollar ocean view, but the many water features that makes this house so extraordinary. The mosaic tiled unheated infinity pool below you overflows into nowhere.
All this turns into an incredible light show at night as the state of the art fiber optic lighting turns the water features into an erupting volcano.
Pool use is controlled by timers only.
The home is fashioned with only top quality materials from all over the world. Extensive use of Chinese quartzite tile throughout, with accents of bamboo flooring. Professionally done tropical interior design throughout. Spacious master suites upstairs as well as down, both having commanding ocean views. The master bathroom affords a Jacuzzi bath, and a five- head glass block walk in shower or you may enjoy an outside (private) lava stone shower. Imagine taking a shower while looking at the brilliant Hawaiian stars.
The immense disappearing pocket doors on both sides of the home open gracefully to the lanais which wrap around the entire back of the home creating a feeling of being outdoors. These gracious lanais set the stage for your evening as you enjoy a glass of wine while you watch the magical year-round sunsets with the sounds of the waters soothing your soul.
The expansive kitchen features only the best. Granite counters, top of line stainless steel appliances and gas stove for those gourmet cooks. Both the kitchen and the formal dining room provide uninterrupted Pacific Ocean view.
