Makaweli estate description
This magnificent, 8-acre island-style estate truly exceeds all expectations. Located directly on secluded Pakala Beach on Kauai's west side, this serene property contains 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 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 oriental 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.
Permit No. TVNC-1268
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 restaurants offering a tempting variety of cuisine.
Activities nearby include seasonal swimming, snorkeling, fishing, hiking, shopping, boat tours and helicopter tours. World class surfing at Infinity's aka Pakala's.
Additional photo's including interior available upon request.
Technically the house has 4 bdrms, however, what was once a 'dressing room' off of the master bdrm has its own double bed and full bath. Egress is through the master bdrm. Hence the '4+' bedrooms.

ReviewsWrite a review
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.

About the owner: My brother and I who own Pakala House today are members of the kama'aina Robinson family of Kaua'i & Ni'ihau who settled in Hawaii in 1863.
Why the Owner Chose Makaweli:
Pakala House is the beach front home built by Sinclair & Ethel Robinson in 1912 at Pakala, Makaweli, Kauai, Hawaii. The home is available year round for vacation rental. It's perfect for families and small groups up to 11 adults. 'Sinclair Robinson, former manager of Kauai’s Gay & Robinson Sugar Plantation from 1912 until 1964 -- 52 years -- oversaw the Hawaii sugar plantation longer than anyone in the history of Hawaii’s sugar industry. He passed away in 1964; Ethel in 1966. When asked at age 76, in 1962, whether he ever planned to retire, he said simply, 'Gay & Robinson has no forced retirement program.' Robinson was born at Makaweli in 1886, educated at Harvard and worked as a field luna at O‘ahu Sugar Co. and as assistant manager at Gay & Robinson before assuming the post of manager. He said that in the old days at Gay & Robinson, sugar was bagged and put onto interisland steamers anchored off the old Makaweli landing. Later, a railroad connected Makaweli to Port Allen and bagged sugar was transported there, where it was placed aboard freighters for shipment to San Francisco. In contrast, the company’s bulk sugar is transported by truck to Nawiliwili and loaded aboard a freighter.' 'In days gone by, he has said much work was done on contract or piecework basis, which increased wages above the basic pay by about $1 per day. Field workers worked 10-hour days, six days a week, and most walked to their jobs from their homes in nearby camps scattered about the plantation. 'The plantation day of early periods started with the mill whistles blowing at 4:30 a.m. Workers were on their way shortly after 5:30 a.m. A break for breakfast and lunch was taken and the work day ended at 4:30 p.m. Horses were the means of transportation for lunas, field superintendents and managers,' Robinson said.' by Hank Soboleski The Garden Island Copyright © 2007, Lee Enterprises, Inc.
