Overlooking the Kauai Coffee plantation and Poipu’s coastline, the property’s premier rim lot location at the base of Kakela Makai provides privacy, unobstructed vistas, and quietude. Completed in 2014, this is the first time the home has been offered for sale.

The living room opens to the screened-in ocean view dining lanai, adding an additional 200 sq. ft. to the livable square footage of the home. The upstairs master features air conditioning and an ensuite bath with dual sinks, standing shower, and soaking tub. Other design elements include wood floors throughout, a mudroom, a large laundry room with sink, an oversized garage, ample storage and three deep lanais for enjoying the views. Take a look at the Matterport tour to view the layout “first-hand.”

The energy-efficient home utilizes solar water, photovoltaic panels, and a Tesla Powerwall, which charges during the day and has more than enough energy to run the household all night. In fact, rather than receiving an electrical bill, the current homeowner receives a check from KIUC for the excess energy generated. Fully fenced and terraced, the land naturally possesses a lower, level area ideal for an Additional Dwelling Unit (ADU), per county zoning. Lava rock walls border the side yard and extend to the terraced garden bed, which is partially planted with pineapples, sugarloaf pineapples, sweet potato, kale, and tomatoes. Trees on the property include apple, banana, red grapefruit, mango, mountain apple, lychee, star apple (similar in taste to soursop), surinam cherry, navel orange, tangerine, lemon, lime, and avocado.

Kakela Makai Oceanview Subdivision (Kakela Makai) is located on the makai (“ocean side”) of Kalaheo. The 199-property subdivision gradually slopes, allowing for ocean views for the vast majority of the lots. Kakela Makai amenities include a community swimming pool and hot tub as well as a clubhouse, which can be reserved for gatherings. Only 15-18 minutes from Poipu Beach, Kalaheo’s “perch” above Poipu and other low-elevation areas allows for dramatic views and typically a cool climate. In recent years, Kalaheo Town has undergone a revitalization with various restaurants, services and fitness options (two yoga studios and a dance studio) coming in, yet it maintains its unique rural feel with Paniolos (“cowboys”) riding horses along the lesser traveled streets. For those working in either Lihue or Waimea, from Kakela Makai it’s approximately a 25-minute commute in either direction.
