After spending 30 years as a Diamond/Gemstone buyer & award winning
Jewelry Designer, a long time Real Estate Developer and more recently
an Artisan Chocolatier , Melanie Boudar brings her creative talents
and business development/marketing skills to Mahana Homes. Melanie
currently owns and operates a successful Bed and Breakfast on the Big
Island of Hawaii. She has partnered with Peter Fluker to bring the
Mahana Homes concept to fruition.
From her home base in Hawaii, Melanie works with prospective clients
to assess their building site and customize their home plans before
the materials and furnishings are shipped from British Columbia.
Melanie fully understands the unique challenges of island building
and as a result she and Peter have developed a home concept that
streamlines the entire design & building process from small vacation
cottages to larger family homes.
Their latest Hawaii collaboration, "At the Craters Edge" is a
contemporary timber frame home nestled into a rainforest setting of giant
tree ferns and brilliant tropical flowers . The home features
expansive window walls that open to capture the forest views, a
gourmet entertaining kitchen/ living area and wrap around cedar
decks for island living. Adjacent to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park,
"At the Craters Edge" is a luxury vacation accommodation with 2 fully
appointed guest suites which has been booking reservations even
months in advance of its completion date. www.visitthevolcano.com
