The north shore of Kaua’i is one of the most beautiful spots on earth. From the ocean to the mountains is a short distance, but a huge difference in climate. The higher ground offers larger, secluded properties and cooler temperatures while still being only a few minutes drive to spectacular beaches. At the very top of Kalihiwai Ridge, your private retreat awaits you. This six bedroom, three and one half bath residence is a true gem.

Drive through a lush tree tunnel to arrive at a fenced-in yard. The gravel and grass circular driveway connects to a quartzite paved driveway, walkways, and patio.
