Kauai
Inspired by his love for the island, Dave Walters built this home to reflect the best of Kauai and its culture. Travis Rowan

Dave Walters knew a thing or three about building nice homes on Kauai. The late creator of Pahio Resorts was well regarded for the way he focused on sustainable practices and kept the island’s culture and people in his best interests. He was as generous with his charitable donations as he was obsessed with classic cars, but when it came to building his family’s property in Kilauea, he proved he was also an artist, because he turned the Garden Island’s views into masterpieces.

Billed as the largest luxury home currently available on Kauai, this $15 million palace boasts a floor area of more than 11,000-sq. ft. With three bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and three half bathrooms, this is essentially the most ideal place imaginable for multi-generational families to gather and celebrate everyone under one roof. There’s even a mother-in-law unit for the people who love seeing everyone but could use a breather every now and then.

Want views? This home has them. Beach, forest, mountain—the best of Kauai is within sight. Travis Rowan

The proof is in the amenities. For starters, there are three full kitchens, with the main kitchen having been designed by a chef, which means that families who cook together are going to also want to set post-getaway fitness goals together. Meals will be enjoyed in the dining room, which boasts incredible ocean views, and guests can retire to the living room for a cocktail or the outdoor kitchen for dessert.

The pool even has its own little lagoon and sandy beach for those guests who don’t want to take the trip to Anini. Travis Rowan

Outdoor cooking might be the meal prep method of choice since this kitchen is right next to the glorious saltwater pool that also has a sand-bottom hot tub and its very own beach. (But if friends and family prefer the real thing, they’ll undoubtedly pick their jaws up off the deck when they see the poolside views of Anini Beach.)

Home decor

The interior décor is an unmistakable tribute to the island and its culture, as each room, from the guest baths to the office, features regional accents and artwork commissioned from some of the Aloha State’s most talented artists.

The cherry on top? Well, that’s a tough one. Is it the stunning koi pond? Temperature-controlled wine cellar? Gym with a lap pool? Garage with space for 22 cars? It might even be the glamourous movie theater, designed as a tribute to Hollywood’s golden age. But we’ll let the next owners decide for themselves.
