About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11).
A long driveway leads guests through a breathtaking panorama to a welcoming portico. The large, southern-style veranda looks out across an expansive landscape and a low, Hawaiian lava rock wall to the Pacific Ocean. This is the perfect vantage point to enjoy spectacular island sunsets.
Step through French doors to a living room lavishly decorated with antique furniture and Persian carpets. The separate dining room is a luxurious amenity perfect for big families. A large, eat-in kitchen opens onto a deck overlooking the beautifully manicured gardens. All bedrooms, are extremely spacious and comfortably furnished. Some are actually suites and several open onto the veranda and the extraordinary vista beyond. Befitting royalty, this impressive home invites families and friends to spend time together yet has acres of space for quiet interludes. A short drive in either direction leads to area markets and restaurants offering a tempting variety of cuisine.
Activities nearby include swimming, snorkeling, fishing, hiking, shopping, boat tours and helicopter tours. World class surfing right in front at Infinity's (aka Pakala's).
One of the best features of our property is out caretaker who lives in a cottage to the rear of the property outside the rock walls. This way you won't travel thousands of miles from home to be left to fend for yourselves in an unfamiliar property. While they are far enough away to ensure your privacy, they are close should anything arise.
The house technically has 4 bdrms, however, what used to be a dressing room off of the master bdrm has it's own double bed and bathroom.

About the owner: We live in Honolulu and have made our family home on Kauai available for vacation rental.
Why the Owner Chose Kaumakani, HI, USA:
Our home was built in 1912 by Sinclair Robinson, Manager of the Gay & Robinson sugar plantation and patriarch of the Robinson family of Kaua'i and Ni'ihau.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Tired of crowded beaches? Our huge yard that runs all the way down to secluded Pakala beach. Perfect for kids. One virtually lives on the front veranda watching the surfers directly out front and the mountains to the side. Great for conversations and naps! The sun sets right out front silhouetting Niihau, Lehua and Kekaha. Our home sits in the middle of the Robinson family lands, cattle ranch and plantation. The beach is fairly isolated. One can walk two miles northwest along the beach to ruins of the Russian Fort Elizabeth and the Waimea River. Crossing a couple shallow streams and climbing over some shoreline rock is involved. An ancient Hawaiian fish pond is a stone's throw down the beach. Collect abundant drift wood or watch a local fisherman casting his net off the reef. One of the best features of our home is our caretaker, Mr. Apo. He tends to the yard and light maintenance and is also a wealth of information about Kauai. He and his wife live in a cottage to the rear of the property outside the rocks walls. This makes him far enough away to insure your privacy, but close should anything arise. Our home has two power sources: the public utility and our own hydroelectric plant up in the mountains. Should one go down, Mr. Apo can switch the house to the other source. This way you won't find yourselves thousands of miles away from home in an unfamiliar place and left to your own devices. Besides our caretaker, we also have the fine folks at Kauai Vacation Rentals who are only a 24/7 phone call away.
