This relaxing, custom home was built in 1987 and is well equipped with a unique design and amazing ocean view. The house sits on the 6th hole of the Makai Golf Course and yet it is in the heart of the rain forest!
We have seen whales in the late winter through spring on the lanai! The Kilauea Light House (a short drive away) has whale watching as well as incredible bird watching stations!
It is difficult to describe the tranquil beauty and incredible flowers that grace this home! The mountain view from the house is the site of the 'rainiest place on earth' and the rainbows are incredible.
The upstairs king bedroom with sitting area, lanai and soaking tub has views of the mountain, the golf course and the ocean. The next level down features a 'California King' bedroom with a double shower and a lanai.
The living room, dinning room, kitchen and lanai to the outside (where the ocean view is amazing) and 'California King' bedroom are on the main level.
The lower level features two bedrooms, one with a full bed and a bathroom/shower and the other bedroom has two twin beds with a bathroom/tub/shower. This level also has an entertainment area with a flat screen TV, pool table and game table. There are also 2 new double Euro Lounge sleeper/sofas, and 2 twin futons.

Year Purchased: 1987
About: This photo is of our '60th' Wedding Anniversary surprise party in Boulder Colorado at a CU football game! We are pictured in the center.
When we built our home in 1986 our grandchildren, Chris (7) and Brianne (5) 'helped' us, and we are now proud great- grandparents! Gary is a retired manufacturer and twin engine Cesna pilot and JoAnn is an artist and dietician. 'The great-grandchildren 'keep us young' and always amazed.'
Why Private Homes: We had the opportunity to purchase the land that overlooks the ocean, has amazing mountain views as well as the fact that the home is located on the 6th hole of the Makai golf course! It is within walking distance of the Princeville Center, and just down the street from the St. Regis Hotel and beaches. Also the infamous 'Queen's Bath' is right around the corner in this quiet and peaceful neighborhood.
Our home is older, yet very unique and we have the most incredible flowers and lush vegetation being in the rain forest.
We have noticed that everyone arriving on the island are completely different upon leaving Kauai. When they leave they all have the 'shuffle' and are so relaxed. This is a family friendly home.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The design of the house is unique, open and spacious, and the stars at night are amazing!
