We have enjoyed several months per year in our Puu Poa home since having completely remodeled it in 1996-1997.
We are retired from working in our own R&D company, from employment in a large US company and from being on the faculty of a major university. Coming originally from Germany, the European influence on the design of the interior of the property is apparent. Other design goals were achieving a light and airy internal environment. Direct and hot sunlight is avoided which, combined with louvered windows for 24-hour cross ventilation, keeps the interior comfortably cool.
The covered lanai with contemporary patio furniture and cooking/grilling facilities offers outdoor living at its finest.
