Hawaiian Native Plants Eco House, Kauai, Hawaii 2000


"The morning sun rises over the lush, green valley, greeting the vanilla bean farm with a golden kiss....

Renault and Viana... shared their beautiful home with us: their beautifuil island... their beautiful life.

Everything is built from the ground up, including their love. Simple island living. Candles were our only source of light.

Rain was collected... " (Liu, 2002, Surfer Magazine)
