These are the levels / layout of Home of the Opening Flower: LEVEL 1. The driveway, the sidewalk leading to the house, and the front porch area, as well as front lawn, are all at ground level. There is a small step-up totaling about 2 or 3 inches, from the ground level front porch, thru the front door of the home, into the entry hall. The front entry hall, kitchen and dining areas, and the Bedroom #4 - which overlooks the front gardens and yard, plus the hall bathroom, are all on the same entry level. The shower in the hall bathroom has a built-in corner bench (as do the other bathrooms). The step-over from hall bathroom floor, into the shower, is about six inches. The entry hall, and all of the areas that adjoin it, except for the fourth bedroom, do have an ocean view. Presently, dining chairs and a bench are situated on the entry level. One or more larger, comfortable chairs could easily be set on the entry level to accommodate anyone in your group who would require or prefer avoiding stairs, and they would not feel isolated from the rest of your group. The television in the living / great room is well visible from the dining area, and rotatable. The kitchen, front entry hall and front porch, have a cheerful, expansive view of front gardens and yard. LEVEL 2. The large ocean-view living / great room, main-level lanai, main-level ocean-view bedroom, and main-level ocean-view master bedroom and ensuite master bathroom, and the laundry hall, are about three steps down from the entry hall and its adjoining areas.

All of the living areas (entry hall, kitchen, dining, great room), as well as three of the bedrooms, have superb ocean and greenery and skyward views. The fourth bedroom has a view of the front garden and yard. From every area of the home, and in all directions, your gaze takes in continually varying colors and abundant rainbows. The home is on a bluff, set back from, and overlooking the ocean, on a large private property, especially broadening toward the back, with ample front, back and side yards, and is adjacent to an extensive green space which leads to a stream. The colors of the water, sky, and land are truly uplifting and inspiring. In their migratory seasons, you can see whales spout, breach, and teach their young, and Laysan Albatross birds as they visit their nesting grounds. Home of the Opening Flower (Hale Makalapua; Blossom Forth) is situated on a cul de sac, in a lovely, very walkable and bike-able residential neighborhood, within the resort community of Princeville, with amenities nearby; a pleasant spot to discover and enjoy the beauty, serenity, vitality, and aloha of Kauai. A 10 minute stroll from the property takes you to a trail leading to a secluded beach. Whether you are planning on recreation, exploration, inspiration, rest, renewal, celebrating a special occasion or a gathering, or working, we wish you an uplifting stay. Home of the OPENING FLOWER had previously been owner-occupied. When the present homeowners acquired it a few years ago, they had hoped to retire here from the mainland.
