Please note that Hawaii is one of the lucky states that is able to conserve water through catchment tanks as our way of a water system due to many homes not having access to county water due to being "rural". This is a way of living to many people throughout the state. Our catchment system is filtered and is safe to use as many systems are in Hawaii. Catchment water is used for showering, washing dishes and normal daily functions. It is advised that catchment water not be consumed for drinking. We provide spring water for you during your stay for drinking and preparing meals. Due to drought (continuous throughout the year) we do ask that you conserve all the water you can during your stay. Minimizing water use (while doing dishes, showering/hygiene, etc.) is greatly appreciated.
Electric fans are provided for use on those rare hotter than usual days (uncommon), and a dehumidifier for use on those damp days if needed.
