The Oceanfront Allure of Kauai’s Lawai Road

Tracing the scenic coastline on Kauai’s South Shore, Lawai Road is much more than a winding road. It’s a place where the ocean seems to encompass the island. Between the sound of the crashing waves, the sunset views, and the sight of whales in the winter, you can easily get lost in the ocean experience. 

If you live in or rent a home on Lawai Road, you’ll enjoy the convenience of being within walking distance of Kukui’ula Boat Harbor. A popular spot for outrigger canoeing, Kukui’ula also has a little beach park that is perfect for families to snorkel and swim. 

Comfort and Convenience

Lawai Road homes are close to restaurants, shops, and world-class golf courses like the members-only Club at Kukui’ula. Nearby is Spouting Horn, one of the most photographed landmarks on Kauai, as well as Allerton Garden, a botanical paradise known for its tropical trees, lush heliconias, and bamboo grove. In addition to convenience, it’s the matchless comfort and impeccable design of Lawai Road homes that make these beachfront properties so coveted. 

Typically, Lawai Road houses feature unparalleled ocean and sunset views from the privacy of your own lanai. With hidden alcoves and beaches known only to those who have an oceanside home here and warm weather nearly all year round, every day is the perfect day to soak up the sun.

Rare Oceanfront Properties

While oceanfront properties near Poipu Beach are rare, Lawai Road is an exception. It’s no wonder that you won’t find an abundance of homes for sale on Lawai Road! 

Currently, there is one home on the market, which the sellers have listed for over $8 million. And since some of Kauai’s most desired properties are on Lawai Road, it’s highly unlikely that the price will be reduced to attract buyers.

In the past, small homes have sold for $3 to $5 million. Anyone serious about buying a Lawai Road house, however, can and will spend more on oceanfront property here. Generally, these buyers are looking for a high-end residence or second home on the water. 

There is nothing quite as breathtaking as living on Lawai Road and being so close to the ocean that the sound of gentle waves breaking melts your stress away. And there is nothing quite as satisfying as helping clients determine that having an oceanfront vacation home on Kauai is their goal… And seeing their eyes light up when that property comes along! 

In addition to Lawai Road, Kauai’s South Shore boasts some of the most desirable properties to own on the island, including the luxury homes at Wainani and the generous lots at Kiahuna Golf Village. To learn more about these South Shore communities, visit the South Shore Kauai Real Estate page.
