Splendid ocean views and the wooden interiors subtly suggest the warmth and calmness of a ship's cabin, as if embarking you on a voyage out to sea. However, nothing here is clichĂŠ.
An art lover will find an unique mix of original art and tribal collections. Global style interior came as a result of years dedication to collecting art, artifacts and unique furnishings from round the world voyages. Despite the ethnic eclecticism, a rigorous discipline in object selection resulted in very calm and coherent style.
Faithfully selected are simple natural materials and unique pieces that can stand on their own. Consistently, objects were selected not only for their esthetic values, favoring purpose and usefulness. The final result is uncluttered, clean, easy on the eyes dĂŠcor featuring muted earth tones and occasional splashes of color. Exotic hand-made details, objets d'art , natural fabrics such as leather, camel hair, silk, cotton and cashmere helped balance the simple lines of all wood structures, a style that could be described as Pacific Rim exotic meets modern.
O Luina was also built with the greatest of care to ensure that the structures and the gardens blended with the surrounding natural landscape without disturbing the beauty of the area. The end result is a unique compound that leisurely agrees with its natural setting as if it has been snuggled up there forever. It is a place of tranquility and extraordinary natural beauty with spectacular mountain and ocean views. The 11.4 hilly acres accommodate main house and a guest house , both offering unspoiled scenery and splendid isolation.
There is abundance of flora and fauna including rare native plants, birds and butterflies. Rainbows are magnificent, awakenings laced with birdsong while only cricket sounds fill the dark but starry nights.
There is secluded rock garden, dark ancient boulders sprinkled with moss and fern, tucked among them, hardwood deck with the Jacuzzi tub. Old, worn, bench and guava railing framing blue shades of the ocean, another slice of havens in the heavenly place.
No additional guests allowed, accommodates only 2.
