We do our best to make our guests comfy, including any-everything short of air conditioning which isn’t terribly planet-friendly.

Last week we had a contractor come in and install a solar powered roof fan and BOY what a difference that has made. The room is cooler by far, making sleeping all the more pleasant.

We are SO impressed that in the coming days we’ll get one installed in Makai.

UPDATE: both our Garden Suites are now much cooler, thanks to solar fans having been installed at the top peak of the 14′ ceiling. Warm air rises and now, goes outside. Yippee!

Sweet dreams, dearest guests.

Last month we took the leap to “get off the grid” and had a photovoltaic solar system installed, which means we now have the ability to harvest all our energy from the sun! WOO HOO!!!

SO, the next time you’re on your computer or taking a shower or doing a load of laundry at Hale ‘Nalo, you can ENJOY the fact that you’re using only the sun’s energy!

Mahalo for your support!

“PV” – the “new” beautiful!

We love to grow things in our gardens… to help our planet (no transportation to the markets), to help our bodies (fresh is so healthy!), and to provide for our guests fresh herbs and greens while they are traveling, a real treat we’ve been told.

So, in the spirit of loving our planet and healthful sharing, we will let you know when what is ready. As guests, you’ll enjoy the bounty. Warm aloha to you :)

We were outed by the big glossy travel magazine ISLANDS. We beat out our famous neighbors Kailua and Lanikai. Heck, we beat out the Bahamas, the Caribbean’s, BVIs, Puerto Rico, the rest of Hawaii. Actually, we beat out the entire world.

Fortunately for us, nothing has changed.
