There are many celebrities who call the Hawaiian island of Kauai home. I didn’t run into any of them during my stay in Hanalei last month,* but I did take the time to scope out the home of the late Michael Crichton from afar. I thought the publication date for his last novel, Pirate Latitudes, would be a good time to post a few pictures. (Read our review of Pirate Latitudes.)
The pictures were taken the day after Kauai’s worst storm in years, so they might look a bit dreary…but the lush vegetation and beautiful beach, which Crichton’s home faces, are a sight to see.
Crichton valued his privacy so much that he also bought the lot across the street, leaving it to nature. Real estate here is at a premium so this empty lot is a pretty big luxury.
If you were a famous writer, where would you choose to hide away from the world? As beautiful as Hawaii is, I think it would be the French countryside for me . . .
