KAPALUA - Kapalua on the westernmost tip of the world's best island of Maui is one of the most spectacular areas of natural beauty on Earth.
The sweeping, crescent-shaped white sandy beaches and rocky cliffs surround the most beautiful, clear turquoise tropical waters.
Kapalua means "embracing the sea" in ancient Hawaiian, but Kapalua is much more than its fabulous coastline.
This amazing property is located at the end of Plantation Club Drive, right in the middle of the manicured fairways and greens.
The unique resort combines miles of hiking trails along the coast and picturesque mountain ridges weaving throughout the splendid scenery, including natural sanctuaries, a rain forest and an arboretum.
World-class golf courses, hotels, restaurants and adventure centers like Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ambassadors of the Environment conveniently provide all the expected top-class amenities, concealed amongst the hand-built local Kapalua Blue stone walls and the signature Norfolk Pine trees that characterize the area. Kapalua blends a casual atmosphere with elegance in its uncrowded, prestigious community.
Right in the middle sits the legendary Plantation Golf Course, home of the PGA Tour's season-opening Hyundai Tournament of Champions each January. The exclusive, gated Plantation Estates envelop the golf course, a certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary since 1994, offering 52 dramatic estate sites across its 720 acres.
I have the pleasure of offering for sale a truly "one-of-a-kind" property located at the end of Plantation Club Drive, right in the middle of the manicured fairways and greens. Number 229 is the perfect location for a golfer's dream home. The island home was built in 2001 for a professional golfer to the design by master Architect Rick Ryniak.
The main house is over 4,000 square feet with three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths, built-in office and workout room. It is centered on an impressive cathedral great room, which rises to the exposed beams of its towering vaulted ceiling, including a gourmet kitchen.
Seamlessly bringing the outdoors in with large pocket doors, the home has an abundance of natural light and is built to embrace its commanding location on the bluff above the first, second, third, fourth, seventh, eighth and ninth holes. The beautiful estate, on over 2.5 acres, is situated to optimize the gorgeous vistas over the greens and fairways down to the blue Pacific Ocean and across to the stunning panorama of the island of Molokai.
It's a wonderful home for entertaining or just enjoying the lingering West Maui sunsets and whale watching in winter. The expansive entertainment area with gourmet barbecue area and outdoor fireplace flows 270 degrees around the property and encompasses a unique infinity edge pool, spa and multilevel lounging patios.
There are two luxurious master suites with beautiful private views over the lush tropical landscaping, which occupy either end of the home, including built-in professional closets. A separate guest house/ohana with two bedrooms and two bathrooms above the three-car garage is located across from the porte cochere over the front entrance.
