After a day at the beach, come home to convene with family and friends for a rumpus game of ‘hoops’ on the basketball court or cheer on your favorite opponent at the ping-pong table while you wet your whistle with a home-spun concoction at the ‘Koa Surfboard Bar’. All of which is included on the ground level, covered, open-air recreation area. Also downstairs is an ‘Ohana’ studio equipped with a full kitchen and bath, a generous King size bed, and an outdoor heated shower enclosed in lava rock for your continued privacy.
