The tree top views off our lanai, and if you look closely you can see the ocean, and with binoculars we can check the surf report ourselves for Makaha Beach, or we can look down and just watch the peacock prancing around the backyard.
Everyone says if I lived in Hawaii I’d be at the beach EVERYDAY! Unless you live ON the beach, that’s probably not going to happen. When choosing our condo we wanted to be within bike distance from the beach and have nice views, so we got just what we wanted. and then some, with the private backyard and gorgeous landscaping, including banana trees. So even when we don’t go to the beach one day, we still always feel like we’re in Paradise. At night the trees are lit up slightly, which allows for the perfect light to watch the nocturnal birds. One night we had a white owl sit on the tree tops all night, and occasionally swoop our way causing a small bird to try to fly into our large windows. We’ve watched mongoose play in the yard and even watched lizards scurry across the living room floor. The hardest part to get used to the lizards are their loud cracking noises, and I hardly notice the peacocks “cries” anymore.
We practice our surfing skills inside
But no matter
how hard I try
I CANNOT KEEP THE SAND OUT!!
Our complex also has two pools with jacuzzi’s, palapa style laundry rooms, 24hr gated security that would require a small army to break thru, BBQ grills, basketball court and a tennis court.
The complex is made up of long term rentals, owner occupied and vacation rentals. I like it for the fact that it caters to the vacationers, because…..everyday here feels like a vacation!!
We still can’t believe we live here!
