Remember that Otis Redding song, “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay,” with the lyrics:
Sittin’ in the mornin’ sun. I’ll be sittin’ when the evenin’ come. Watching the ships roll in. And then I watch ’em roll away again, yeah. I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay. Watching the tide roll away. Ooo, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay. Wastin’ time.
Kukui’ula Harbor embodies the sentiment that Redding was conveying in the classic ‘60s song. Small and quaint, charming Kukui’ula Bay located along the Poipu coastline is a wonderful place to relax and watch “the tide roll away.”
A whole world unto itself, from sunrise to sunset this vibrant microcosm offers excellent people watching. From the early morning departures of scuba diving and fishing boats and families on the sandy beach soaking up the mid-day sun to Kukui’ula Outrigger canoe club practice at dusk, there is always something happening.
On the way to Spouting Horn and the National Tropical Botanical Garden, the bay itself is a mostly calm, protected area for swimming, but does not offer the best visibility for snorkeling. Outside the small jetty, there is an expert surf spot – rightly named “harbors.” Oceanfront pavilions with nearby shower and bathroom facilities offer a perfect location for barbequing and picnicking.
4646-A Amio Road
Overlooking the bay is 4646-A Amio Road, an oceanfront, elegant Mediterranean-style home ideally situated to capitalize on the 360° breathtaking south shore views of the Pacific Ocean, Kukui’ula Harbor, Kukui’ula Golf Course, mountains, coastline, and iconic Spouting Horn.
Elegant Mediterranean-Style Home (MLS# 277257)
With a substantial 5,648 living area square footage, the home features five bedrooms and six bathrooms. Not included in the aforementioned living area is the partial basement which houses the swimming pool equipment and recreation room, outdoor living spaces, and the two-car garage.
With multiple front and back lanais, a spa and an infinity-edge swimming pool seemingly dipping into the Pacific Ocean, this home capitalizes on its oceanside surroundings and is an excellent location for winter’s whale watching season.
Originally custom built as a primary residence, a lot of love and expense went into the building of this fine home. Currently a successful vacation rental, this home has the coveted Transient Vacation Rental (TVR) permit, which is active and in good standing. Home is sold fully furnished. The Shops at Kukui’ula and the rest of Poipu with its restaurants, shopping, and activities is only a quick drive away!
