About the Property

Spectacular ocean & mountain views, great snorkeling!

This gorgeous property is a favorite vacation spot for well-known actors, musicians, athletes, artists, doctors and entrepreneurs. We have many repeat visitors who feel that our house is their second home.

Rising from the Pacific, Kauai's signature peak (called Bali Hai ever since 'South Pacific' was shot here) is simply breathtaking. Surfing, swimming, paddle boarding and just walking the beach are rare pleasures.
Rainbows often seem to rise from the ocean.

The house is a stunning yet cozy timber frame on a wide lawn with incredible views. The interior features antiques and pine furnishings, beamed ceilings and warm colors - predominantly soft reds and blues.

Three bedrooms have king beds. The front bedroom has breathtaking ocean and mountain views. Two bedrooms have en suite bathrooms; the third has beautiful Tommy Bahama furnishings and a connecting bathroom.
The beach level bedroom has a perfect ocean view and a queen bed with a connecting bathroom (shower, no tub).

KITCHEN: Counters and a center island are topped with rare 'Bahia Blue' granite. There's a blue Viking range with a griddle, and a Sub-Zero refrigerator.

We prefer no more than six tenants at a time, but will consider 7-8 depending on children's ages.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: This house was one of very few residences on Tunnels Beach (Makua Beach) when we bought it in 1986, as a vacation home. We moved to Kauai permanently in 1992 - TWO WEEKS before the powerful Hurricane Iniki destroyed our home and many others. We began rebuilding a few years later. The beautiful new house was completed, and became a rental, in 1998. We have had amazing tenants and many, many repeat visitors. Everyone loves the house and its incredible location.
