Poipu’s desirable Lawai Beach Road is host to arguably the best waterfront south shore homes on Kauai. Hale A Kai is certainly one. Featuring a sandy beach and tide pools teeming with sea life, it’s no surprise this luxury vacation rental home is so popular.
On nearly half an acre with 166 feet of Pacific Ocean frontage, the plantation style home is accessed through a private gate and drive court amidst flowering orchids and stately King and Coco Palms. Surrounded by stone surfaced decking, the sun-drenched oceanside pool is perfectly set within the vibrant green lawn and lush tropical gardens.
Crafted of Brazilian Ipe hardwood, the grand entry stairway and front lanai set the tone for what’s inside. Approaching the front door, the breaking surf viewed through the living room and beyond the lanai is mesmerizing. Entering between matching staircases into the bright living room with its vaulted cherry wood ceilings, the kitchen and dining areas are to your right. Doors open wide from the living room onto a spacious dining lanai showcasing tide pools and breaking surf below.
Your al fresco dining experience will never be the same.
A well-appointed kitchen is open to the interior living and dining areas. Large ocean facing windows frame your view from nearly every angle. Gracious stairs from the main lanai bring you to the pool and covered outdoor kitchen and grilling area. An adjacent half bath and shower allow for comfortable entertaining.
The ensuite master bedroom features its own oceanfront lanai, a perfect spot to enjoy sunrises with a cup of Kauai coffee. Having windows on all three sides of the master wing allow for maximum light and air flow, although the entire home features central air conditioning. Plentiful closets plus a washer and dryer complete the owner suite.
Away from the owner’s retreat at the opposite end of the home are two comfortable guest suites. The primary guest bedroom fronts the ocean with its private lanai perfect for capturing that elusive green flash at sunset. A secondary guest room faces beautiful mountain vistas to the north. Off the guest wing’s connecting hallway is an additional laundry area for guests.
Two separate single car garages with adjoining workshops and plenty of additional storage areas are on the ground level.
