The whimsical Hale Lokelani—Hawaiian for "Heavenly Rose"—is permanently settled in Paauilo Mauka on the property where it was constructed.
An outdoor covered lanai wraps around three sides. Two doors and a sliding front entrance lead you to the light-filled interior, where lovely sheer curtains allow the dining nook to transform into a cozy sleeping area. A barrel roof and large openable skylight make for a spacious loft bedroom area, where a queen size bed is surrounded by windows on all sides. A custom beautiful mango slab table can be easily moved into the spacious kitchen area—to become a kitchen island—or out to the covered lanai through the large sliding glass doors for dining.
The kitchen features cabinets custom-built by the wonderful Tom Thompson from reclaimed woods—including mahogany, sepele, mango, bamboo, and maple—sourced from the Big Island.
The bathroom is equipped with a washing machine and top-of-the-line Swedish Separett composting toilet. A stunning shoji door provides beautiful lighting at night.
Peter, the very satisfied owner of Hale Lokelani, says, “This is my dream come true! I am beyond happy in my stunning 'tiny temple' designed by Barrie Rose and constructed by the amazing team of Johanna Tilbury, Bill Setterfield, Tom Thompson, and JC." Peter is in the process of creating a mango juice and coffee bar in a partially-closed lanai that offers both indoor and outdoor seating.
