Property description

Despite our attempts to accurately describe our property on this website, we frequently receive emails from our arriving guests like "We have arrived in Kekaha. The Sunset Plantation House is even better than we could have imagined."

Sunset Plantation House is a spacious oceanfront vacation home on the sunny west side of Kauai. Including the lanais, the home has 3800 square feet of living space. Facing south, the home has an unobstructed panoramic ocean view.

Sunset Plantation House is located in Kekaha, the western most city in the United States with the least average annual rainfall on Kauai. According to WorldClimate, Kekaha's average rainfall is a sunny 21 inches per year.

A short distance north of the home are Waimea Canyon - the 'Grand Canyon of the Pacific', and the Kalalau Lookout overlooking the northern Napali Coast. A short distance west of the home is Polihale beach. A short distance east of the home are the Kauai Coffee Plantation; Port Allen where Napali snorkeling cruises, sunset cruises and helicopter tours embark; and Salt Pond - a great reef-protected beach for children.

The main floor of Sunset Plantation House is the second floor, which has two bedrooms with private baths, a family room, a kitchen and a large lanai. The second floor family room is part of a vaulted ceiling great room which includes an entertainment center, a formal dining area, an informal dining area and a fully equipped kitchen. The adjacent wrap-around lanai has a barbeque, dining furniture and lounge chairs. The first floor has a bedroom/bathroom suite, a family room, a wet bar and a large wrap-around lanai.

The bedrooms, family rooms, lanais and kitchen have panoramic ocean views!

All interior floors are travertine, except the bedrooms, which have carpet. The lanais have sandstone floors. The kitchen and bar countertops are granite. All bath countertops are marble. The three main showers are oversized with travertine walls, marble pebble floors, travertine benches and multiple shower heads controlled by thermostatic valves. The master bath has a jetted tub with an in-line heater for extended ocean-view bathing. Each of three full baths has a wall-hung mahogany cabinet for two. Each of three bedrooms has a king-size bed, a private bath and entrances from a family room and a lanai.

The home has central air. A washer and dryer are available for guests and a private shower is available for those returning from the beach. The interior of the home is smoke free, however, smoking is permitted on the lanais.

The maximum number of overnight guests including children over 12 is six. Social gatherings of more than 12 adults are not permitted.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Ed is a Mechanical Engineer/MBA (University of Cincinnati) who was an executive for high tech companies including IBM, Oracle and several Silicon Valley start-ups. After retiring from Silicon Valley, he owned and operated a Plumbing Fixture business in Santa Cruz known as 'Plumbed Elegance'. Annette is a Dental Hygienist (West Liberty College) and continues to work part-time in Palo Alto and Cupertino. They have 6 children and 12 grandchildren who reside in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Florida and California. They currently reside in Aptos, CA.

Why the Owner Chose Kekaha:
They constructed this house in 2003, as owner-builders, after visiting Kauai every year from 1987 until 2003, except for the year after Iniki. They stayed in Princeville, Poipou, Kapaa and Kekaha during their many visits and chose to build in Kekaha because it had the best year round weather on the island.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
They designed this house for large families, multi-generation family gatherings and visits by several friends. There are few, if any, other properties on the island that have 3 master suites and 2 family rooms. They placed particular emphasis on the bathrooms ensuring that each bath was spacious with oversized showers and double vanities. With the panoramic ocean view, they added 1350 square feet of covered lanais and large sliding glass doors in all bedrooms and family rooms to maximize the ocean view. Finally, they added central air because the west side is the sunny side of the island.
