Live the ultimate Kauai experience in this luxe and spacious 3-bedroom, 2-bath airy tropical house
Designed from the ground up as the ultimate tropical vacation home, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in the idyllic community of Ha’ena pampers you with the soothing sounds of the surf, five-star amenities and some of the most awe-inspiring views along the North Shore of Kauai.
Spread across a generous 2,600 square feet, this home’s ideal location puts visitors within easy reach of beaches revered internationally by surfers, swimmers and sailors. Not only is it a leisurely two-minute walk to the nearest waves, but it’s also just down the road from the world-famous Tunnels Beach, Kauai’s snorkeling nirvana. Venture further to experience the dramatic beauty of the Na Pali Coast, or just look out your windows at waterfalls trickling down Mount Makana.
You’ll have more than 800 square feet of covered, luxuriously furnished lanai (what some call a porch) surrounding the house, tempting you outdoors at all hours. Settle in to a deeply padded wicker chair to sip Kona coffee at sunrise, sip a lilikoi fruit smoothie in the afternoon or grill the catch of the day as the skies turn golden during the latest sunset in the United States.
Inside, the home’s open floor plan brings mountain and garden views into the combined kitchen, living and dining area, where you’ll routinely gather to recount the day’s adventures. On the breakfast bar, find a gift basket of local artisan chocolate, Hawaiian spices and discount coupons that will ease your introduction to favorite Kauai treats and adventures—ice cream, bike rentals and a catered dinner. If you need more ideas, leaf through our book of suggestions for hiking, dining and sightseeing, or borrow our beach gear for a day of sunny recreation.
Throughout the house, strategically located windows open to the cooling ocean breezes and bring a light, airy atmosphere to every room. Spacious bedrooms on opposite wings provide ample privacy for groups of couples, friends or families of up to six people. The 12-foot cathedral ceilings and multiple seating areas add to the sense of space.
You’ll immerse in a distinct island experience here. Original island artwork—paintings, carvings, sculpture—captures the tropical beauty. Furnishings are high quality, but casual enough for shorts and flip-flops. You can even bathe under balmy tropical breezes in the enclosed, hot-water outdoor shower.
Each bedroom is arranged for comfort and convenience. The master suite has a king bed, walk-in closet, dressing area, adjoining bathroom and access to a lanai. From the front guest room’s queen bed and lanai, you can gaze at the every-shade-of-green terrain. The second guest bedroom also has access to a lanai and offers cozy quiet and two twin beds that can convert to a king.
In no time, you’ll be living like a local, stocking up on impossibly fresh sushi and shopping the farmers markets for exotic fruits and vegetables that you whip into smoothies and cocktails. With a kitchen outfitted for the most discerning chefs, you’ll be turning out quick meals on the barbecue gas grill with ease. You won’t lack for indoor entertainment with a 42-inch flat-screen television with surround sound, a DVD player and high-speed Wi-Fi.
In anticipation of our guests’ every need, the electronic front door locks require no keys to pick up, share or return. The kitchen is fully stocked with shopping bags, basic seasonings and cleaning supplies. The laundry room features an over-sized washer, dryer and large pantry.
And if you feel like you’re in a movie set, that’s because you are. Views through the sliding glass doors frame Makana Mountain, which stood in for Bali Hai in the classic movie, “South Pacific.” Nearby, George Clooney filmed scenes for “The Descendants.” In such pleasant surroundings, you can’t help but feel like a star.
