Sunset Estate Garden Tour and Dinner Date
November 23, 2012
"Kauai is known as the “Garden Isle” because it’s lush and green and one of the wettest spots on earth. And on the south shore, there lies a spectacular botanical garden, unlike anything you’ve ever seen, that was once home to a Hawaiian Queen long, long ago. It’s paradise on earth and you are invited to explore its’ majestic beauty at a very special time of time of day – at sunset. Imagine strolling through a series of garden “rooms” surrounded by miniature waterfalls, bronze statues, pools and fountains. You’ll walk under rainforest trees, bamboo and fruit trees. It’s like the Garden of Eden right here in Kauai and it’s yours for the afternoon.
The garden estate is available to tour in the late morning and early afternoon, but the very best time to visit is at sunset. Your guide will walk you around the idyllic grounds and take you to the gorgeous mansion overlooking the beach. You’ll enjoy a beverage with appetizers on the verandah of the beautiful estate and your senses will experience a journey that will take you back in time to a gentler era. The gardens are romantic and the site for numerous films and have also been known to host celebrities such as John Wayne in the guests’ quarters. Just remember to bring your camera and some repellant otherwise, like me, you’ll be on the menu as the “mosquito buffet.” Afterward, we'll have your driver take you to one of our ""Concierge Recommends"" restaurants right on the beach known for their Hawaiian Hospitality, award winning cuisine and spectacular ocean view. Try the oven roasted chicken breast stuffed with wild mushrooms & gorgonzola or the macadamia nut butter sautéed fresh hawaiian catch of the day. Order a bottle of wine, enjoy your dinner and cherish your time spent on the ""Garden Isle.""
