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.

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.
