Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, this magnificent, custom four-bedroom/four-bathroom home was built in 2008 by a contractor for his personal residence. Attention to detail is evident throughout, with use of the finest flooring, fixtures, and molding. The house is located on Kaikio Ewa Place, a street named for one of Kauai’s governors who was known throughout the island for having the finest home of his day.
We have chosen to name our house Blue Hawaii House in honor of Elvis Presley‘s love for the island of Kauai and his most famous Hawaiian movie which was filmed on our island. A memento to the King of Rock hangs in our great room.
As one enters the large double doors, a wooden inlay of a pineapple welcomes you into the house. The flooring throughout is Tuscan travertine and hardwood. A large dining room with seating for eight is located to the right of the foyer and the great room is located straight ahead. The great room has high 20-foot ceilings, a large screen TV, a breakfast bar, and is furnished with the finest sea grass style plantation furniture. Beyond the living room is the fully equipped gourmet kitchen, complete with an instant hot water dispenser, island, gas cook-top, pot filler, and double ovens. There is also an informal dining area that seats eight. Behind the kitchen is an office. A laundry room, a bar with a wine refrigerator, and a den with two futon couches are also located on the first floor. Adjacent to the den is a full bathroom and a master bedroom suite complete with a full bathroom, shower, and Jacuzzi tub.
Upstairs are three bedrooms (two with queen beds and one with two twin beds) and two large bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms have their own sinks but share a common bathtub\shower and toilet. One of the bedrooms has a screened-in lanai.
On the first floor, we have a large, covered and screened-in lanai accessible from the master bedroom, great room, and kitchen with two doors leading to the backyard. Inside, our garden furniture includes a large round table with four chairs, a loveseat with a coffee table, and two chairs with footrests. The oversized backyard also has a hot-and-cold shower built against a wall of lava rock and a barbecue located in a covered shelter with countertops along the sides.
Behind the backyard is a walkway which runs along the perimeter of a large park. Beyond the park is a public library and the Princeville Shopping Mall, which includes restaurants, a grocery store, and convenience stores - all only a three-minute walk from the house. We are only a 10-minute walk to the pathway to Anini Beach.
We have installed free WiFi and an Island QuietCool Cooling System, consisting of four large fans upstairs which expel hot air from the attic and produce a breeze pulling in cool air from outside. We have also upgraded our lighting in the house to be exclusively LED.
