Hawaii Life Homes Named Winners in HGTV’s Ultimate House Hunt Search

Three homes represented by Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers were selected as winners in HGTV’s Ultimate House Hunt for receiving the most votes in the Glass House, Privacy, Please, and Backyard Retreat categories! HGTV’s Ultimate House Hunt, a month-long online contest on, attracted over 82 million views, with nearly 900,000 votes cast.

Best Glass House

The award-winning homes included a Contemporary Estate in Haena with a gorgeous living room with incredible ocean views. This airy living room features a neutral upholstered sofa and armchairs paired with floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase the stunning ocean view and was the reason it won favorite Glass House.


5-7534 Kuhio Hwy., Haena (MLS# 283058)

Best Private Retreat

The favorite for Private Retreat was a Hawaiian home that rests on 26 acres in Omao, on Kaua’i’s south side. A custom finish on the pool surround mimics the rippling water and blends in nicely with the lush, tropical landscape. An infinity-edge pool overlooks a tropical valley with views of mountains beyond.

Best Backyard Retreat

And the best Backyard Retreat was a Resort-Style Amenities home in Princeville, Kaua’i. Step out onto this stone patio and kick back in one of the lounge chairs lining the home’s 50-foot saltwater pool and waterfall grotto. Just beyond the pool area lies a variety of tropical foliage and flowering plants, while off in the distance is a panoramic view of the mountains framing Hawai’i’s Hanalei Bay.
