Upper Kalihi Valley has always been known as a Place of Healing in the Islands. The Kahuna used to do Bone Healing back by Naohia Waterfalls (Triple Waterfalls). It is said that the Mother of Pele was born under these Kilohano Mountains.We are simple, Haahaa (humble) and Aloha Kekahi i Kekahi (look after one another). Our Kupuna (Elders) teach us there is Balance in Nature that we need to have in our everyday lives...... so The Rainforest Calls with the Makani (the light breezes) that help the trees to dance their Hula and sing there Mele (songs) to us as we take the time to listen once again.We have all kinds of Tropical Flowers, Banana, Passionfruit, Mountain Apples, Hawaiian Lemon, Kau Oranges. You can pick for yourself. Any food on the Dining Room Table is for the whole house.Everyone helps with cleaning up after themselves. Living across from the rainforest, if food or dishes are left out the ants come in for dessert.Our home was built in 1952, so it is an older house. The Blue Queen Room is on the 2nd floor in the house. Facing the Rainforest with cool breezes from the valley. Queen Bed, 37 TV, Ceiling Fan, Dresser and Wifi. There is a half bath next to it.We usually have nightly rains from the mountains that keep it cooler in the valley. Shared Half bath on 2nd floor, full bathroom tub/shower, and walk in shower on the 1st floor.A stream that has low lying waterfalls within walking distance. . . .Tin Roof and then our Triple Waterfall in the back of the Valley about a 35 minute gentle hike.All common areas are shared.There is a washer and dryer on the Lanai with BBQ, large rectangular table and chairs with electrical outlet so you can use your computer, charge your phone. Verizon has the best reception. Being deep in the valley our neighbors have lived here 30+ years so it is more like country, with hiking trails on the mountain, fruit trees also in the forest. . .Avacado, Macadamia Nut, Star Fruit, Breadfruit.Free Street parking. We are Ohana style being respectful of one another. Everyone washes and puts dishes away, cleans up after themselves. Shoes off at the door. Each person has an ongoing chore staying a month or more.
