Kukuiula house description

Treat yourself to a once-in-a-lifetime adventure on the ocean with magnificent views of whales, turtles, spouting horn, and sunsets beyond belief with the 'green flash'. This luxurious $3M private home sits on the coveted south shore of Kauai where there are only 24 other private homes.

The owners, Patty and Al, have spent 20 years remodeling this property since Hurricane Iniki to make it a one-of-a-kind custom home for them and you to enjoy. The woodwork, including cabinets, doors, and light valances, are all handcrafted of beautiful Red Oak and Koa. Custom indirect lighting features are throughout the unit.

The heated swimming pool is tiled and features four life-sized swimming dolphins and a life-like sea turtle to accompany you while relaxing in or by the pool. They were designed and hand-crafted by well-known Hawaiian artist, Vogland, who has artwork in many Hawaiian resort pools. The covered lanai by the pool is a favorite spot for breakfast and “happy hour”.

The 600sf master suite has a relaxing TV sitting area with views of Spouting Horn and the inlet to Kukui'ula Small Boat Harbor where dive boats and sunset catamaran tours depart. South shore paddling teams practice with their 6-man Hawaiian canoes and surfers, kayakers, and paddle boarders are coming and going daily from the harbor. Of course whale-watching, in season Dec-April, is a favorite pastime of south-shore residents. Sea turtles also can be seen in the ocean daily. The master bath is custom designed and has a walk-in 35sf shower with multiple shower heads and a view of the ocean while showering. Custom elect curtains insure privacy in the Master Suite while drifting off to sleep with the sound of the waves breaking on the shore only 20 feet away.

Featured in the “great room” is a completely restored 1945 Brunswick “Anniversary” pool table for your enjoyment. The wet-bar kitchen area is complete with a microwave, toaster, dishes, utensils, and coffeemaker.

A 300yd short walk will put you at the famous National Tropical Botanical Gardens, Spouting Horn and its local vendors, or the Kukui'ula Small Boat Harbor and beach area.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1992

                  About the owner: Patty & Rotary Past District Governor Al, from Seattle originally, have lived on the south shore of Kauai for 40 years and have traveled voluntarily throughout the world together for 30 years doing Rotary International projects. Al is a structural engineer and general contractor and has spent the last 20 years remodeling this house, which was destroyed by Hurricane Iniki, with a “labor of love”. Patty works as a local volunteer and enjoys playing Bridge, Mah-Jongg, and being a grandmother. Al plays tennis 3 days a week and is very active with Rotary projects and his 'retirement project' of remodeling their house. He also loves the mountains and has hiked almost every trail on Kauai and does long-distant hiking on the Pacific Crest Trail, having hiked 2200 miles from southern California to Canada. Patty and Al would love to share their home with you and add you to their list of “new friends”.

                  Why the Owner Chose Kukuiula:
                  The South Shore of Kauai is in the lea of the weather pattern and gets only 11 inches of rain a year. It is the “best of paradise” and only 15 miles from the top of Mount Wai’ale’ale, which is the wettest recorded spot in the world of 452 inches of annual rainfall and a record of 683 inches. This property is only 2-3 miles from the south-shore resort community including the Grand Hyatt, Sheraton, Kiahuna, Poipu Kai, etc. and is one of only 25 houses on the south shore. In the area are 3 golf courses, 50 tennis courts, and the famous Brennecke’s “body-surfing” beach. Across the street is the 17th hole of the new Kukui’ula, 1000 acre Resort complex, featuring a new shopping village. The National Tropical Botanical Garden is 300 yards down the road and the famous “Spouting Horn” is only another 100 yards. There are over 20 restaurants on the south-shore and it is truly a destination-area for fun, sun and relaxation.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This property is one-of-a-kind for luxurious living. The heated pool is tiled with four dolphins and a sea turtle to accompany you while relaxing. It is only 15 feet from the sea-wall and the gorgeous views of Spouting Horn, sunsets, whales, turtles and all the other ocean activities leaving the Kukui’ula small boat harbor. The covered lanai, with the views mentioned above, is a perfect spot for breakfast, lunch, pupus, happy-hour, or just relaxing. Inside the 1300sf unit is a 600sf master bedroom suite complete with king-size bed, indirect lighting features, and a sitting area for enjoying the ocean views or TV. Electric curtains provide privacy and the master bath area includes a walk-in 35 sf marble shower with multiple shower heads and a view of the ocean. Featured in the great room are a restored Brunswick 1949 “Anniversary” pool table and an electronic piano for your listening or playing enjoyment. The covered lanai is accessible either from the great room or the dining area. The kitchen area includes a microwave, toaster, two burner hot plate, coffee maker, and refrigerator and has views of the ocean and pool. Off the great-room are a decorator half-bath and the laundry area featuring Red Oak Cabinets and countertop.
