An un-attached guest house with swimming pool, on a private, gated, 2.5 acre estate. This 700 sq ft residence is located at at 1100 foot elevation in the foothills of the Ko’olau Mountains above beautiful North Shore beaches. Nights are pleasantly cool. Days are warm. There are only two buildings on the 2.5 acres: the owner's house and the guest house. One is about 300 yards from the other and neither can be seen from the other. Each house has its own private gardens. The property is gated and kept locked; you will have your own key to come and go as you like. Your space on the property is very private. The owners are privacy nuts. The property was once a botanical garden, open to the public. Although it is now kept private, many of the plantings have been maintained and new ones have been added. Wild birds can be seen in the gardens, and heard twittering at sunrise. There is a well-equipped kitchen, a bath with tub and shower, one bedroom upstairs containing a double bed built in the 1860s during the administration of Abraham Lincoln. The house is furnished with antiques brought to Hawaii from N. Orleans as well as Pacific Island inspired pieces. The living room has 20 foot clerestory windows. The getaway has cable TV on a 42 inch flat screen, WiFi, cable radio, DVD player, CD player, and its own private gardens front and back. The swimming pool is between the guest house and the main house and is available for your use - although the owners have been known to sneak a dip when their guests are out exploring the island. Pick your own citrus in season and admire the flora of this botanical garden.
