One of my favorite things about Kauai is the island’s rural, country aspect. A couple minutes after leaving any of its small “towns,” seemingly uninhabited nature landscapes unfold all around the two-lane highway that encircles nearly the entire island. Quite the departure from city life!
On the south shore of Kauai, head westward out of Old Koloa Town toward Waimea Canyon State Park, and Omao is the next stop. Literally meaning “green” in Hawaiian, Omao is just that – green. While well-known Poipu is more arid (making it fantastic for beach activities), Omao, which is a mere 5 minutes away from Poipu, is a more verdant region on Kauai’s south shore. Known for its lush, rolling hills, this pastoral enclave carries a rustic, laidback feel.
One of the great aspects of this area is the diversity of Omao real estate. Directly off of meandering Omao Road on either side there is a collection of homes, giving the area a more residential neighborhood feel. Or, if a country atmosphere is more preferable, then there is extensive acreage off of Koloa Road complete with ranchlands, pastures, and picturesque farms.
The Ultimate South Kauai Estate
Deeply set back from Koloa Road is Omao Ranch Lands #2, a secluded country estate where bohemian luxury meets south Kauai Omao ranch lands with 360°mauka to makai views. A tropically elegant entrance lined with palm trees leads to the multi-winged residence incorporating 5 suites and ample indoor and outdoor entertaining areas.

Outdoor features include a hot tub, infinity-edged lap pool, outdoor kitchen, gardens, waterfall features, fire pits, pasture lands, a stream and verdant valley on the back side of the estate with stocked ponds, gazebos, docks, and landscape nursery.
