Ahhhhh! Paradise!


Sitting on the lanai every morning watching the light change on sky and water as the sun lifts it's head from behind the mountain, is so uplifting to my spirit it makes my heart sing.


We are so blessed to be able to spend an entire month on the Big  island of Hawaii this year! and lucky enough to have found a beautiful, spacious, well furnished condo to rent that suits us perfectly. We feel as at home here as we would if we owned it ourselves. 

Located about 1/2 mile south of Kailua Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii we are able to walk to the market, to kitchy little bars and coffee shops, restaurants, and even a luau!


  

Overflowing with the most ripe, fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables, the farmers market inspires us to cook island style.

Spring rolls made with fresh lettuce and herbs from the market, shrimp farmed on Kuaui  avocados and papaya from a local garden. 
           
And stir fry with grass fed beef from Waimea, accompanied by local tropical fruit. 
Ahhh, life in the tropics!
