There is no question, the Kauai real estate market has never seen quite the same kind of complications as it has these last couple of months. The COVID-19 related restrictions imposed upon individuals and businesses are significant. For the most part, the only out-of-house business operations we've been allowed to perform had to relate to already established escrows. Fortunately, appraisers could keep appraising, inspectors could keep inspecting, and most importantly, the Bureau of Conveyances on Oahu kept on recording sales. At a time when so many things seem uncertain, we feel extremely thankful for our wonderful clients and also our peers in the industry, all of whom worked hard to make each of the below sales occur during unprecendented circumstances.

Sale Price: $1,650,000
Perfectly perched above the Pacific, this 4BD / 3 BA home offers stunning ocean and mountain views. After coming through the private gate onto the 3.68 acre estate, the driveway climbs past an exotic fruit orchard to the private 2-story home atop the hill. With over 3000 sqft. of living space, every room in the home was designed to take in the panoramic views of Kalihiwai Bay, the Kilauea Point Lighthouse, the Namahana mountain range, and more. The home is almost entirely wrapped in decking, allowing even more opportunity to take in the lush greenery, long views, and blue waters. The spacious and bright residence offers great potential to upgrade and customize as your own.
Adjacent to Anini Vista, this property, rich in history, extends down into the makai (ocean) facing valley that has been meticulously curated with native Hawaiian flora and with a botanical walking path that reaches all the way to the bottom. Great time and attention has been given to restoring the native landscape and providing healthy habitat for local wildlife. The orchard on the mauka (mountain) side of the property boasts dozens of mature tropical fruit trees including mango, orange, grapefruit, lime, pomelo, banana, papaya, starfruit, lychee, longan, rambutan, breadfruit, mountain apple, mangosteen, soursop, mamey, abiu, the "lemon merengue pie" fruit, and others.
3320 Kalihiwai Rd is somewhat of a living Kauai fairy tale... Beautiful home nestled on the grassy hillside with resort-level gardens on all sides, lovely lava rock walls and outdoor shower, whales in the ocean below and afternoon rainbows over the bay.
