Update: January 11, 2018- Our hale (home) has arrived. It was an exciting day watching our tiny home being delivered. She looked so happy to be in her new home overlooking the blue ocean and tucked in beside the tropical trees near the waterfall. We are in the process of furnishing the inside and beautifying the perimeter with colorful plants. We anticipate the hale will be ready for guest this spring. Contact me at drheatherrivera@gmail.com for more details and bookings.
