The 16,000 square foot home designed by Mark Potter, reflects California art deco architecture, with a tropical Hawaiian twist. Antique furnishings, detailed moldings from England, pine wainscoting and coffered ceilings grace the living room, hallways, foyer, library and staircase.
Kilohana PlantationÂ is centrally nestled within 104 acres of pasture, manicured grounds, gardens and natural foliage. The curved driveway leads to the elegant front door of the home, with guest parking just beyond. Approximately 67 acres of agricultural park is located beyond the main home and can be best viewed aboard the Kauai Plantation Railway.

Stop in and try the Rum!
What Fun! Okay, so truth is, I never much liked rum. Oh, maybe in the occasional Mai Tai, rum is tolerable. But there we were, stopping in here on a whim. There was only about a 15 minute wait for a rum tasting, so we thought why not.
What a great idea!
Anna Bell was the hostess and did a great job explaining the rum process to us. We tasted five different rums and a rum cake. We liked the original dark rum so much that bottle came home with us. We missed the tasting of the coffee rum, but bought two of the small bottles of it. Delicious!
We can't buy this rum in our state of PA, but have it on our list for when we go to Washington, DC again. There are, luckily, lots of shops there that carry this unique brand!
