The great room of the house combines the the kitchen, dining, and living spaces. About 40 feet wide at the front, this huge open space was designed with indoor/outdoor living in mind.
"The clients really wanted to embrace everything about the Hawaiian lifestyle," says Rosenfeld. "This allows them to open all the doors when they have people over, and even move some of the furniture out on the lanai."
The family travels a lot, and Tahiti is one of their favorite vacation spots, so integrating that style was important to them. Rosenfeld used authentic pieces from Tahiti and Indonesia throughout the home. Many pieces are made of teak, including the custom dining table and coffee table — solid pieces of teak, made in Indonesia and designed by Rosenfeld.
Beyond the pool, a bocce ball court overlooks an ocean view. The house is located up on the coastline, with a clear view of the ocean from its hilltop spot. The outdoor bar — covered in native, volcanic rock — sits next to a large barbecue and the guest house tiki room!
The property includes the primary 2 bedroom residence, as well as a separate structure with two guest bedrooms in it. "The clients love that, since their two children can bring friends and all stay in the separate house," says Rosenfeld.
