Hidden Home off Bamboo Road
Driving down the narrow one lane Bamboo Road in the hills above Captain Cook the Devil Dog spied this hidden two story A-frame home in the center of about four acres of property behind a wall of young banana trees. The picture resonates with me somehow....a depiction of a lifestyle set back from the stresses of modern society, a hidden oasis in the hills of paradise, a reality that one can still find refuge from the rigors of life without giving up the amenities of modern society. Hawaii, and the southern reaches of Kona in particular, abounds in such properties, places where the individual can find their own private nirvana in the boundlss realm of the mid-Pacific.
