Before Hawaii’s small towns became large cities, before its coastline became dotted with high-rise condominiums and its local soul was slowly pushed inland, there was emerald green, endless blue and a proud spirit as far as the eye could see.
This is Kaua’i today, the most northern and eldest island in the Hawaiian chain, known locally as the Garden Isle of Hawaii.
One step onto its shores and you will understand why.
The Trip of Lifetime, Again and Again
Lihue Airport is only a five-hour flight from San Francisco, then a 20-minute drive to the southern coast. There, sitting high above Kukui’ula Bay is Kukui’ula, a world-class, family-centric, private club and luxury community.
Robb Report recently named it “Best of the Best” and Golf Digest gave its Tom Weiskopf-designed course the designation of “Best New Private Course.”
Imagine exploring, swimming, hiking and dining here year after year, making memory after memory.
Unforgettable Luxury Real Estate in Hawaii
Richard Albrecht, president of Kukui`ula, declared, “The opportunity to shape Kukui`ula’s future is special. Its scale may never be replicated in Hawaii again. I don’t think you can find a better project in a better location with a better developer than at Kukui’ula’s.”
Indeed, as the pitch of the land at Kukui’ula allows for unobstructed views from most of the property.
There simply isn’t many more undeveloped, pristine land such as this left in Hawaii. We can thank the community for utilizing this property as a thriving sugar cane plantation for decades.
Now, you can live among renowned restaurants (such as Merriman’s Fish House
– try the Macadamia Nut Crusted Monchong), a top boutique spa (complete with a resort-style pool with private cabanas, lava saunas and fitness facility), and endless adventure, courtesy of the resort’s Island Pursuit team.
Island Life Adventure
Learn how to surf, hunt waterfalls (there are 100 waterfalls scattered around Kaua’i), watch turtles swim free, fish from a kayak (where you can also spot whales and dolphins) and snorkel until your arms grow tired.
Spa director Justin Franklin said the resort offers 35 complimentary fitness classes every week, but feel free to skip them all. The choice is yours every day.
Yelp is helpful. Google Maps is a godsend. But there’s something about stepping outside your back door to face the sun-drenched horizon, which beckons you to play.
Feel free to leave your iPhone 6 on “do not disturb.”
What if your firstborn, or first grandchild, rode their very first wave at Kukui’ula?
What if you made a list of all 100 waterfalls on the island and checked them all off one-by-one?
Developers with Deep Roots
DMB Associates and Alexander & Baldwin, two stalwarts in the real estate business, are developing the Kukui’ula community. Hint: these guys know luxury real estate, especially in Hawaii.
Alexander & Baldwin (A&B) is one of Hawaii’s most respected companies with a 145-year history of agriculture and land development in Hawaii. And DMB Associates (DMB) is known for establishing several of the West’s best communities, including Silverleaf in Arizona, Martis Camp in California, and Glenwild in Utah.
Albrechi said it best, “Our infrastructure is complete and was fully funded with cash, not debt. It is a testament to DMB and A&B’s commitment to build all amenities at the same time, instead of holding back with a structured timeline based on membership levels.”
One visit to the Kukui’ula community and you can see why there was no holding back. With a luxury home for sale in Kaua’i Hawaii, surrounded by greens and blues and island living, it may be too good to pass up.
