    The word kupu simply means “to grow or sprout” and this house honors the kupukupu fern, one of the first plants to bring life back to the land after a devastating lava flow, initiating the coming of the forest.

Coffee and amenities, a beautiful clean kitchen, a wood burning stove with starters and wood stacked. It was really a wonderful experience all the way around.
