Property description

This gem of a property is perched up on a bluff steps away from a golden sand beach with panoramic views of a beautiful tear dropped shaped Bay. It is hard to take your eyes off of the absolutely spectacular one of a kind living reef just below. It's the best view of the Bay and Reef second to none. This older plantation home has everything you need with Hawaiian charm. This quaint Beach house has a updated stove and refrigerator in the kitchen with new French doors stepping out to a outdoor seating area with several beautiful iron tables and chairs for ample seating. Trade winds come through The front bedroom which also has french doors leading out to a spacious lawn area. You will enjoy 200 plus feet of ocean frontage with awesome views. Which makes this location very unique. The mountain side of this property boarders 49 acres of conservation land Allowing the most ultimate privacy. A place to rekindle romance under a star studded sky or just the right place for a fun family vacation for all. If this were a Luxury home the rate would be unaffordable for most people. This location is a prized vacation spot for many locals. Just imagine of all the islands in the Pacific with there numerous beaches, Hollywood chose Kauai to film Gilligans Island on Moloaa Bay, and on this very property. Other movies shot on Kauai include Jurassic Park, Pirates of the Carribeane , Blue Hawaii, 6 days 7 nights, Raiders of the lost Arch, South Pacific, The Decendants the list goes on. This garden island offers breathtaking views of lush tropical mountains, beautiful waterfalls and an emerald sea. This special place awakens your spirit and holds you captive to serenity where memories are etched in your heart forever. Truly a Diamond amoung Pearls!

This is the property the pilot episodes was shot for ' Gilligan Island' We were told they put large leaves in front of the house to hide it when filming. They also left behind a anchor, could this of been from the the 3 hour tour that crashed on mooloa bay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I am a political activist, my goal is to help Hawaii become more sustainable. Improve education so that our children can compete in a global economy. I try and promote respect for the environment. And love for one another. Honor Our Heritage, Embracing Our Diversity, Sharing Our Future is Aloha

Why the Owner Chose Moloaa Bay:
This property is the trump card of Moloaa Bay. This is the only home on the bay used as a backdrop for Gilligans Island filming. This property is unique in the World. I have been offered Millions of Dollars for this property, and I tell them this property is PRICELESS.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, Along with being the most private location on the Bay. No other home has a view like this home. The view of the reef along is magical. Because of the unique location you never have to worry about a rogue wave taking you out while your sleeping. It happened before all the homes on the bay were swept away except mine. Why? because my home sits on a bluff out of the way of danger
