Private Homes house description

Hanalei, on the island of Kauai, is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. Its pristine beaches are surrounded by a stunning array of waterfalls and emerald-green cliffs.

Melia Kai is a private home with a sweeping view of the cobalt blue Pacific Ocean and the cascading waterfalls of Namolokama. Located on the Princeville Makai golf course, our house offers the visitor a wonderful opportunity to do just about everything---but it is also a terrific place to do absolutely nothing!

The spectacular views invite you to walk barefoot across the fairway to the edge of a 150-foot cliff, where you look down on waves crashing onto the lava rock below. If you watch closely, you will see turtles swimming in the coves beneath you.

You will find that Melia Kai offers the best of two worlds - the luxurious amenities of the Princeville resort and the exotic remoteness of Kauai's north shore. One minute you can be sipping a Mai Tai in a crisp summer outfit at the sumptuous St. Regis Hotel, and the next you can be navigating a jungle trail in your bathing suit looking for the waterfall at the head of the Kalihiwai Valley.

Come stay the week at Melia Kai and experience paradise first hand!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: Our family lives in Los Angeles. We are originally from South Africa (Dad) and Chinese from the Philippines (Mom). Our 3 kids were raised in Los Angeles and enjoy the benefits of their multi-cultural background. While the kids were growing up, we frequently came to Hawaii for vacations always dreaming of owning a home in Kauai one day.

          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
          We have always dreamed of owning a home on the Garden Island of Kauai. Why? Location, Location, Location. You cannot beat the location! Stunning ocean views and a beautiful golf course just outside your windows. You can see Bali Hai. The sunsets are also amazing! The house is only one floor and very easy to maintain. You have your privacy unlike hotels or condos. It's a great family home.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          You get the benefit of a private home. Quiet solitude in paradise or loud, boisterous fun - it's your choice. Secluded Hideaways Beach is a short walk away behind Pali Ke Kua condos or take a walk in the opposite direction about 16 homes away and explore Queen Emma's Bath. Princeville Shopping Center is a 2 minute drive away and has everything you need (Foodland, pilates, touristy shops, restaurants, bars, real estate offices you name it). Apparently beer is the same price at Foodland here as it is in Lihue or Kapaa so no need to shop and shlep. Hanalei Beach is only a short 5 minute drive away and that is pure heaven. Anini Beach with its beautiful sand and calm waters is only 10 minutes drive away door to beach. There is great snorkeling a little further down from Hanalei Beach at Tunnels Beach. Kayaking and SUP are available only 5 minutes away in Hanalei on the Hanalei River. And if you don't want to do much, sit out on our lanai and just watch the golfers and the birds - truly relaxing. Walk out to the bluff through the golf course with your glass of wine after 6:00 pm (very short walk) and see the waves crash on the lava rock while the sun sets.
