I was born and raised here on the island of Kauai.
My dad and his family are from the islands but their ancestors are Chinese on the dad’s side and Hawaiian on his mom. My mom is from Washington state but moved here just after college, met my adventurous ocean loving dad and together they sailed many islands over a period of a couple years which after decided to settle down here on Kauai.
I am one of seven of which all but one still live here on the island. We grew up together as best friends and now as adults are all still very close. My dad, being a fisherman, often brought home dinner from the ocean. Many nights we would be at the beach all day and my dad would meet us there after work, dive for about an hour and come in with fish for the whole family. We hid a grill in the bushes which he would pull out and we would cook our dinner just there on the beach.
This certain beach is the one that became very dear to my heart which drew me to buying our investment home nearby for our own kids one day. Thus, the Lime House
walked into our lives. It was a beginning of the unknown for us but as we went through the process of purchasing the home and the extensive renovations we decided the best decision for us right now in our lives was to create an Airbnb
"Being that this is my home though and some place I cherish, honor and respect I wanted to do more than create a rental. I wanted this home to be a place where visitors would come and feel like they could take a piece of the island home with them in it’s true essence. To find the true meaning of Aloha and to hold that in their own hearts and lives."
Many of the personal touches and little details in the home are from my own home and even gifts from my family to place in the home. I hope that all who visit will enjoy this little piece of my heart I share with them.
One of the beautiful parts of growing up on an island is being outdoors. We have oceans, waterfalls, mountains and more. It’s a life of simplicity yet so much fulfillment and joy. It’s a life where you grow to appreciate the simple things and cherish the importance of family.
We eat food from both the land and sea.
We find music in the swaying branches and crashing waves.
We drown ourselves in the beauty of the sunrise and the sunset.
The Lime House
- 4 Bedroom
- 2 Bathroom
- Steps from the beach
The Lime House is centrally located on the island and just steps from one of our favorite beaches! One that Naomi grew up going to almost every day. It’s a beach that is great for the whole family. It is also located just across the street from the Coconut Marketplace where you can find shopping, free hula shows and farmers market! Just down the street is the Wailua river which is great for kayaking or taking a boat ride up to the famous fern grotto.
