A rare combination of amenities exists at Lei Aloha, a special retreat in Princeville, on the north shore of Kauai. Gates lead into a private courtyard, completely enclosed by a stucco wall and tropical plants, including plumeria, heliconia, gardenia, and torch ginger. In the center of the courtyard is a 16’ x 40’ swimming pool, a great way to cool off.
Upon entering this custom-built home, guests are greeted by a magnificent view of towering Norfolk Island Pines that sway in the breeze. These graceful giants, framed by the soaring windows of the great room, flank the 6th fairway of the Woods nine of the 27-hole Makai Golf Course.
Lei Aloha is a comfortably and tastefully appointed home that has been professionally decorated with thoughtful attention to detail. This breezy, Hawaiian home of over 3200 square feet will generously accommodate your family and friends in four bedrooms and three and one-half baths, which will comfortably sleep eight guests. One master suite and two guest bedrooms are on the first level, all opening onto the courtyard and the pool through French doors.
An additional bedroom is located on the second level, and features a deck that overlooks the pool to the distant Bali Hai view. The master bedroom suite in a private wing of the home is furnished with a king-size Tommy Bahama bed. This suite is complete with a spacious bath with double sinks, a Jacuzzi tub and separate marble shower. The Master bedroom is the only room in the home with Air conditioning.
This suite also features 26' LCD television and DVD. A gracious desk overlooking the pool is the perfect spot to address postcards or set up your laptop computer. An additional king suite features tropical intrigue and romantic drama with the graceful draping of mosquito netting around a bamboo bed. The queen suite with private marble bath features a walk-in shower.
The fourth bedroom (upstairs) has two twin beds, as well as a desk to facilitate working from your vacation home, if you insist! All bedrooms have digital cable television. This property has Brazilian cherry wood floors throughout this light, airy home, designed for easy living. A separate laundry room with washer and dryer is available for your convenience. The two-car garage on an automatic opener makes handling groceries and luggage a snap!
This home is equipped for your entertainment with stereo, digital cable TV, DVD and high-speed internet access throughout the house. The property is oriented to take advantage of refreshing trade winds that keep the home a comfortable temperature. Your family can spread out in this comfortable home featuring an open floor plan from the great room to the dining area and to the kitchen.
The dining area, including a formal dining table and a breakfast bar, seats eight people comfortably. The gourmet kitchen, featuring granite counter-tops, mahogany cabinetry, and cooking space for multiple cooks, is well equipped for a light breakfast or a full dinner! Meal preparation is easy with a multitude of both large and small appliances, ample cookware, and dinner service for twelve!
You will enjoy the outdoor spaces as much as the indoor spaces! Enjoy your morning coffee on the lawn under a palm tree next to the pool. Or fire up the gas barbecue on the lanai overlooking the Makai golf course for that fresh mahi-mahi you picked up from the local fish market! An outdoor dining table graces the lanai, making it difficult not to relax!
The grounds of this property are enclosed by a stucco wall, providing privacy for sunning and swimming. Professional landscape artists have insured that the foliage of the tropics will delight you. In addition to the tropical plants mentioned above, the fragrances of mock orange, puakenikeni, and pikake at various times of the year will confirm that you are in paradise!
Lei Aloha is a great place to do absolutely nothing. The comfort and ambiance provided by this private home offer the rationale for doing nothing for as long as you want, completely without guilt! Slow down, take a break, unwind, loosen up, chill out, put your feet up. And when you are as relaxed as you can possibly get, Lei Aloha is a terrific place from which to do just about everything. Play golf on the Prince course, one of Golf Digest's top-rated golf courses. Or choose the Woods nine, the Lakes nine, or the Ocean nine at the Makai course. If your preference is tennis, you'll enjoy the Princeville Tennis Club with six Plexi-pave courts, a full-service Pro Shop and one of the most beautiful sites in the world for tennis.
Princeville is the gateway to an amazing range of activities on Kauai’s scenic North Shore. Just a few minutes’ drive will have you kayaking emerald rivers, touring the canyons and valleys by helicopter, hiking to secluded beaches or along the Na Pali Coast, horseback riding to waterfalls, deep-sea fishing and whale watching. The shops and restaurants of Princeville Center are just minutes from the house. Or for an elegant shopping and dining experience, the Princeville Resort offers gourmet cuisine and chic boutiques, as well as a fitness center, and a long, crescent-shaped beach, great for swimming, or a moonlit stroll. A number of small, secluded beaches can be found in the Princeville area for those willing to hike a short distance. Keep a close watch for sea turtles off the rocks surrounding Queen Emma’s Bath! Or take a short drive (less than 10 minutes) to the quaint town of Hanalei, for one of the world’s best beaches.
