Makua Kai is located on the lush north shore of Kauai, the Garden Island. Kauai is known as the most naturally beautiful island in the Hawaiian chain, as yet unsullied by modern development. It is the oldest island of Hawaii and has towering mountains, scenic canyons and spectacular waterfalls.

Makua Kai is located just 15 minutes from the town of Hanalei and just steps to Tunnels Beach, the best snorkeling location on the island. The Kalalau Trail, which marks the beginning of the Na Pali Coast and Kee Beach, are about 2 miles from the property. The famous Princeville Resort (golf, tennis, spa, and restaurants) and Hanalei Bay Resorts are just 20 minutes away. The north shore of Kauai offers a multitude of fine restaurants and daily activities; a list of recommendations will be available to you for your stay.

The Makua Kai property has a long and noble history. This Crown Lands parcel (designated during the Mahele as a part of Royal Patent No.7194) was once owned by Mikahela Kekauonohi, granddaughter of Kamehameha I, and wife of Liholiho Kamehameha II who later donated a portion of the property to the YMCA camp next door. This property then came under private ownership and currently resides in a quiet beachfront neighborhood. Here, you can escape to the “old Hawaii” amongst towering kamani and ironwoods trees; savor the moment of this relaxed tropical paradise under swaying palms and sprawling grass lawn. Bali Hai Peak (locally known as Mount Makana), made famous from the movie “South Pacific” is viewable from one of the homes.

 

Each home has been given its special name by a Hawaiian kahuna. One home is named “Ka Hale Kaiola” which means the House of Healing Waters. The other home is named “Hale O Naue” in commemoration of the ancient Hawaiian land it occupies. The houses are available individually and provide a beautiful private escape for your ocean side adventure or you may want to rent them both for a family reunion, small business conference, or group of friends.

A map with precise driving instructions will be sent to you upon receipt of your reservation.
