“Located on Aliomanu Bay, our beach house offers unobstructed ocean views from most all rooms and the backdrop and grandeur of the Kalalea Mountains is post card perfect. You will waken to spectacular sunrises and enjoy the benefit of the most central of locations for all Kauai adventures.

With your morning coffee or tea in hand, stroll across your lawn to the inviting sand and warmed turquoise waters. It won’t be long before the routine of car, door, office, is replaced by swim, eat, visit with the fish, and watch the stars. Protected from the waves by extensive offshore reefs our very secluded beach is perfect for snorkeling year round. Take one of the available ocean kayaks across the bay, marvel at the colorful coral formations and visit with the turtles.

Our beach home has all the conveniences to allow for gracious living with a fully appointed gourmet kitchen. Allowing everyone to make meals on their own or together. All bedrooms have private en-suite bathrooms. And plenty of space for all to relax and enjoy the view.”

About Bindu Yoga Studio

“Bindu Yoga Studio is a quiet retreat from our busy daily lives where we can nurture our body, mind, and spirit through the study and practice of yoga. This practice comes in so many colors, shapes, and paths that it can be challenging at times to navigate the waters and find what is right for you. For us, the truth is that whatever practice resonates with you, calls you over and over again to the mat, and opens your heart, is the practice that is right for you! We aim to honor and revere yoga in all of its diversity, with an attitude of grace and a willingness to allow the profound openings that are possible to pour forth from all of our hearts.

We have just entered our 12th year of offering a diverse weekly schedule of yoga classes with some of the best teachers in South Florida. Some of our many class offerings include Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga Lite, Viniyoga, Yin , Restorative, and more. In addition we offer a weekly donation-based class to ensure that yoga stays accessible in our changing financial times.

Our studio offers a place in which your truth, beauty, and courageous spirits are brought out and celebrated—we deeply honor and respect your amazing path to your deeper self!

Help Design The Next Chapter of West Palm Beach’s Southend Neighborhood

SouthDixieProperty

In 2012, after rumors began circulating that Wal-Mart had eyes on developing 8111 South Dixie Highway (the site of the old IHOP), the City purchased the 7-acre piece of property for $2.9 million. City leaders wanted to focus on a more innovative project that would help continue revitalizing the Southend. And, as the Southern most piece of property in West Palm Beach, leaders view it as as the gateway to the City for those coming from the South.

ihop

The site was cleared in October of last year and now the City of West Palm Beach is looking for help with the redevelopment of 8111.  From the 18th till the 21st of May, the City will be hosting Design Charrettes.

The Design Charrette Kickoff meeting is tonight, May 18th at the South Olive Community Center, 345 Summa St, @ 6:30PM.

Come visit the Design Charrette Sessions, which will be held in the Hibiscus Room at Mandel Public Library

Tuesday, May 19 – Open to Public 6PM to 8PM
Wednesday, May 20 – Open to Public 6PM to 8PM
Thursday, May 21– Open to Public 10AM to 12PM

The designers will be working each of the 3 days from 9:30AM to 8:00PM.

The public session will be available for the public to come view what the designers are working on and give their feedback and ideas as the designs are developed.

Want to view the final plans and see what’s next for the Southend?

On May 20 at 6PM, you’re invited to sit in on a special session where the Parks Master plan draft will be unveiled.

This is your chance to help create the kind of neighborhood you want to live in. Don’t let the opportunity to get involved pass you by.

Stock Up For Summer In The Southend

Plate

Looking for the perfect plate to make your picnic pop? Check out these chic outdoor-friendly plates I found at the SoSo Tuesday Morning. In a turquoise quatrefoil pattern, they are a great addition to your poolside or patio dining props. And at only $2.99 each, you can amass the whole collection that includes salad plates and small accent bowls that would be amazing for gazpacho.

Those unfamiliar with Tuesday Morning are missing out. It’s one of the best kept secrets for stylish steals in the Southend. Word of advice for Tuesday Morning novices- if you see something you like, buy it immediately. Quantities of designer finds are often limited and Tuesday Morning devotees clear them out quickly. (I learned that the hard way.)
