Say Aloha To One Of The Coolest Kauai Homes You'll Ever See

For a vacation getaway, permanent residence, or Bond villain hideaway, this elegant escape offers some of the best views in Hawaii.

Lately it seems as if the world's most beautiful homes are growing on trees in Hawaii. At least that's the vibe we get from the super-exclusive, private club community, Kukui'ula. The first of its kind on Kauai, this incredible neighborhood has already blown people away with designs and builds so exceptional and innovative, they make owners want to change the "vacation" label to something more permanent.

Most impressive is how each new home manages to top the last simply by being different. Tropical real estate can be somewhat uninspired in some areas of the world, but in this remarkable community, residents could experience a little neighbor envy—that is, if they can take their eyes off their own homes first. And it will be especially hard for a prospective buyer to look away from Kahalawai #7.

The newest listing in Kukui'ula is a 5-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom estate that is as decadent as it is just flat out cool. While there's so much to rave about, the first thing anyone will notice is the spectacular panoramic view, as this elevated home almost seems as if it is floating above the rest.

Set on nearly 30,000-sq. ft. of land, this property serves as a miniature resort, offering the best of the island's natural beauty from every room. The dual master suite will make family and guests alike feel as if they have escaped to a South Pacific spa retreat, while the overall layout emphasizes privacy as much as it embraces the surroundings.

But if this custom home is anything, it is a venue for entertainment. Between the chef's kitchen and indoor and outdoor dining areas, no meal will ever be skipped on these grounds. Guests will gather in the massive great room and lanai for drinks and conversation, all while eyeing the golf course and thinking about tomorrow's early tee time. And when it's time to unwind, the home theater will make a fine place for the kids to enjoy the latest Disney+ action.

The cherry on top is, without a doubt, the raised infinity pool. With water cascading over all four sides, this amenity is essentially a work of art designed in such a way that it not only meets the horizon, but somehow becomes as captivating as the views that it serves so well in showcasing.

With the use of native lava rock and a variety of other natural accents, this $13.75 million home is a tribute to Kauai's incredible, breathtaking beauty. There's no doubt it will stay that way for generations to come.
