This magnificent, island-style estate truly exceeds all expectations. A perfect place for family reunions. Located on secluded Pakala Beach on Kauai's west side, this totally serene property borders an orchard and is heavily sprinkled with mature shade trees and a variety of palms.
A long driveway leads guests through a breathtaking panorama to a welcoming portico. The large, southern-style veranda looks out across an expansive landscape and a low, Hawaiian lava rock wall to the Pacific Ocean. This is the perfect vantage point to enjoy spectacular island sunsets.
Step through French doors to a living room lavishly decorated with antique furniture and Persian carpets. The separate dining room is a luxurious amenity perfect for big families. A large, eat-in kitchen opens onto a deck overlooking the beautifully manicured gardens. All bedrooms, are extremely spacious and comfortably furnished. Some are actually suites and several open onto the veranda and the extraordinary vista beyond. Befitting royalty, this impressive home invites families and friends to spend time together yet has acres of space for quiet interludes. A short drive in either direction leads to area markets and restaurants offering a tempting variety of cuisine.
Activities nearby include swimming, snorkeling, fishing, hiking, shopping, boat tours and helicopter tours. World class surfing right in front at Infinity's (aka Pakala's).
The house technically has 4 bdrms, however, what used to be a dressing room off of the master bdrm has it's own double bed and bathroom.

We live in Honolulu and have made our family home on Kauai available for vacation rental.
Philip Keat purchased this house in 1870
Built in 1912 by Sinclair Robinson who was the Manager of the Gay & Robinson sugar plantation and patriarch of the Robinson family of Kaua'i and Ni'ihau.
Tired of crowded beaches? Our huge yard that runs all the way down to secluded Pakala beach. Perfect for kids. One virtually lives on the front veranda watching the surfers directly out front and the mountains to the side. Great for conversations and naps! The sun sets right out front silhouetting Niihau, Lehua and Kekaha. Our home sits in the middle of the Robinson family lands, cattle ranch and plantation. The beach is fairly isolated. One can walk two miles northwest along the beach to ruins of the Russian Fort Elizabeth and the Waimea River. Crossing a couple shallow streams and climbing over some shoreline rock is involved. An ancient Hawaiian fish pond is a stone's throw down the beach. Collect abundant drift wood or watch a local fisherman casting his net off the reef.
This property was a wonderful surprise. "Plantation" says it all -- the house was vintage and sprawling. It was extremely well kept and stocked with all the amenities/comforts of home. And with 5000 feet on one level and 12-foot ceilings, it all felt absolutely spacious. The veranda was a perfect spot for our family to gather over drinks to watch surfers, whales, and sunsets. We had a group of 9 adults, and the house was perfect with the setup for each family to have their own private space including a bathroom. We cooked breakfasts and dinners at the house nearly every day - the cupboards were so well stocked that we never ran out of clean coffee mugs or wine glasses! Walks on the nearly private beach provided daily excursions and shell-searching. The expansive lawn also provided a feeling of space and luxury -- a welcome change after spending a few days in Waikiki in throngs of tourists. We even bought a frisbee to take advantage of the space! Even before we arrived in Kauai, our experience with this rental was very positive. The rental agent and the owner were very responsive to inquiries, providing pictures and much more information than expected. Some in our group had late flights out on our day of departure and they were very accommodating to arrange a late checkout from the property. (The only thing that would have made the week better was if roosters really only crowed at dawn! ;-) If (when?) we visit Kauai again, we would definitely return to this property!
This home is wonderful in every way. Of course the location (beach front) and large size are the first draw. In addition, there is a beautiful veranda that wraps around the front of the home which is perfect for sitting outside and enjoying the view. The large yard provides substantial space for family play. The history of the home is fascinating and adds character. The size is perfect for a small or larger group. The owner and rental manager are accessible and supportive. We've visited twice now (Feb 13 & Dec 14) and hope to go back again.
6 of us stayed for 1 week over Christmas 2011 to celebrate my uncle's 60th birthday. We were blown away by the location and beautiful setting. Each day there were surfers out front and whale watching from the lanai. The beaches to the north were undeveloped and we enjoyed daily long walks (bug free!) to explore the flora and fauna. What wonderful water--what sunsets--what privacy! The kitchen had every amenity you could ask for: coffee grinder, electric can opener, 2 ovens, 2 refrigerators, wine glasses, aperitif glasses, fine China, serving platters, dishsoap, paper towels, etc. The portable gas grill was spotlessly clean and right off the kitchen. The rooms were comfortable and had direct outside access to the lanai. This made for additional privacy. We really liked the bedroom to bathroom ratio--no one had to share. This was an easy trip--easy to check in and check out, easy access to Waimea canyon and the ocean. The wireless internet access was a real plus and the laundry room was stocked and roomy with a drying rack for swimwear. We hardly ate out because it was nicer to BBQ and hang out on the lanai to take in the view. We needed to receive and send a few faxes during the trip and the management office was extremely accommodating and helpful, calling when a fax arrived, etc.. Other than some zealous roosters, we have no complaints.
Property is situated on Kauai's sunny west side directly behind the world famous Pakala surf break (aka Infinity).
The foot of the Waimea Canyon aka 'The Grand Canyon of the Pacific' is a 2-mile drive away.
