Kalae house description

This kid-friendly 2 bedroom house offers sleeping arrangements for up to 5 adults. A master suite on the East side of the home provides complete privacy, a king size bed and en-suite bath. The master bath offers a spacious garden shower. The master suite also features a private garden with a quietly bubbling fishpond. The guest bedroom on the west side of the home features 1 full-size bed and 1 twin bed, a deck and large adjoining bath with shower.

This hillside home features an open floor plan allowing for ocean and mountain views. A large open beam ceiling and tasteful splashes of color grace the Great Room to create a true sense of Hawaiian comfort. It includes the living room, dining area and, library and is connected to a large lanai facing the Pacific Ocean and a view of the Island of Lanai through the large trees. Fully retractable doors achieve a perfect balance of indoor/outdoor ambiance. In the winter months, the wood burning fireplace comes in handy. Ample seating in the living area near the fireplace creates a relaxing spot for friends and family to gather. In part of the Great Room, there is a library with television, stereo and an eclectic book collection. The cupboard full of games and picture puzzles can provide hours of fun and relaxation. The outdoor patio provides a special area for drinks while the barbecue is heating up.

Kauluwai Mauka [pronounced “Kah-oo-loo-wye Mah-oo-kah” which means the red spring in the mountains] was architect-designed for comfort and enjoyment. Kama'aina furniture and family heirlooms enhance feelings of history and continuity. A great place to unwind after your Maui or Waikiki stay, Kauluwai Mauka’s central location, twenty minutes from the airport makes it easy to explore the Friendly Island and make quick trips down to the many secluded island beaches.

Our home is an extraordinary rustic mountain retreat that welcomes you to a different experience of peace and tranquility in the rolling uplands of the center of Molokai. Expansive views from the mountains to the sea through the large koa trees, with cool trade winds blowing year-round and spectacular sunsets create an ambiance like no other.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: In 1966 Stephen and Dora (Cooke) Derby built an architect-designed home for themselves on land that had been in the Cooke family since 1909. Granddaughter, Diana and her husband Jeff LeFebvre own Kauluwai Mauka and have been managing the family home for years. They welcome you as their guests.

                  Why the Owner Chose Kalae:
                  Kauluwai Mauka began as an exclusive family vacation retreat, furnished in elegant simplicity to be a haven for busy city dwellers, their family, and friends. It has continued to offer relaxation and comfort to many guests as the family has grown.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  'If you want to relax and do nothing, go to Molokai and stay up at Kalae.'
