The largest of the units is the Grandview Hale. Sleeps 8 - 12 persons.
The Grandview is designed with exquisite taste with a focus on Japanese design with local elements of Hawaii. You enter through the 'genkan', a beautifully designed Japanese entry used for the removal of shoes and quiet space prior to entering the main areas. Take a few steps up to the living room or in the opposite direction, step down into the kitchen. From the kitchen you then take a few steps back up into the living room to complete the full circle. This design was inspired by a famous Japanese architect, Tomoe Sugiura.
The living room is grand with a showy 22' media wall and gigantic 70' flat screen HDTV for theater style viewing. TV offers 800 Cable channels including high definition and sports package as well as internet service introducing Netflix, YouTube, Amazon, etc. Complimentary Netflix allows a generous variety of movies. Eucalyptus solid hardwood flooring, ultra-comfortable leather sofas, and high ceilings add to the grandiose living space. A genuine wood koa table centers the formal dining area. Expansive 8’ sliding glass doors on both sides offer tropical breezes, country views, and a feeling of openness connecting you to the beauties of Hawaii.
The kitchen is without a doubt the center of attention to this home. Curvy custom granite tops represent the flowing hot red magma, walls are tiled with true lava pavers, and floors show true hawaiian river pebbles to the mix of visual delight. Frameless, modern cabinetry design is sleek and upper doors open with a touch of a button. Stainless steel appliances include a double oven, 4 door refrigerator/freezer, built-in microwave, and dishwasher. Top pro 36' Thermador induction cooktop with a telescopic downdraft vent allowing for the most efficient and clean cooking available. The 45' pro sink makes prepping a breeze.
