Spectacular Wailua Valley Views – Custom-Built Home on Kauai Rim Lot

Perched high above the Wailua River and surrounding valley, “The Banyan Tree House” feels like you are living amongst the birds in the trees. You would be hard-pressed to find anything else this close to the rim.

With a majestic Banyan tree to the left and spectacular treetop views out the sliders – it feels like you are in a really modern treehouse.

Wailua Valley Views

From one of four tiled lanais, you can experience the peace and solitude offered by nature, and enjoy the tropical breezes.

Engineered for lasting durability and comfort, with steel and concrete supports and beams, this is a solid home — bamboo flooring on the main floor and custom tile, slab granite, and solid wood cabinetry throughout. There is ample lighting, Ipe decking, a 3-panel solar hot water system (80-gallon tank), Smart Panel termite resistant exterior (trimmed out in Red Cedar), copper rain gutters, Tech-Shield radiant barrier and solar vents (providing for cooler temperatures), and jalousie windows allowing for great airflow. The entire home is equipped with easy-install velcro hurricane shutters for peace of mind.

Home from back

From the back, you can see the structural engineering that went into this home.

Entertaining is a breeze in this home. The spacious and well-appointed kitchen has room for gathering and cooking and is open to the living and dining areas. An oversized detached 2-car garage with attached 240 sq. ft. studio is a great space for extended guest quarters, with a toilet, shower, sink, cable TV, and telephone. Park in the garage and cross over a beautiful wooden walkway made of solid Brazilian IPE that bridges the garage and house over a boulder and fern-lined drainage canal.

Lush tropical foliage and IPE bridge to the front door.

The lot is fully landscaped with mature beautiful tropical fruit and palm trees and vibrant flora, including sweet pink grapefruit, avocado, Tahitian lime, banana, and papaya. Located in a neighborhood of other fine homes in the desirable Wailua Homesteads. Hiking trails, mountain views, recreation on the Wailua River, and numerous waterfalls are within close proximity.
