Welcome to Hale Kainalu, “House of the billowy sea.” The name of this extraordinary home is inspired by its connection to the ocean. Located within the highly desirable Kainani neighborhood of Kukuiʻula, this gracious homesite overlooks the 4th fairway, with panoramic views that extend to a blue water horizon. Days are bookended by cinematic sunrises and sunsets, while a million stars parade across a deep blue sky at night.

Tucked away on an expansive 18,819 square foot lot, Hale Kainalu boasts a total living area of 4,291 square feet, including an expansive 3,166 square foot interior and a generous 1,125 square foot covered lanai. Designed by the husband-and-wife team of Michael and Lani McLychok, of Tropical Architecture Group, this South Shore haven combines thoughtful doses of luxury, nature, and tranquility.

Life opens up in the Great Room.

Stepping inside, your eye travels through the room, across the lanai, past the yard, and beyond the fairway. The great room features stunning teak vaulted ceilings and flooring, for a warm and elegant living space. Large sliding doors give way to a wave of light and fresh tropical air. The main living area showcases clean lines, contemporary finishes, and beautiful tile flooring.

In the kitchen, you’ll find all the modern conveniences you desire, including an expansive island. Easily the social heart of the home, it’s a place to gather, prep for occasions, share traditions, and nurture new ones. An adjoining pantry for those secret ingredients completes the space.

Comfort and solace in gracious private spaces.

Family and guests will find great comfort in three well-appointed ensuite bedrooms designed for a relaxing living experience. The primary suite includes a private lanai and view across the pool. The large walk-in closet is well suited to an island wardrobe. The gracious ensuite features dual sinks, large walk-in shower, deep soak tub, and a private outdoor shower surrounded by a hand laid lava rock wall. Two additional ensuite bedrooms complete the east wing of the home.

On the opposite end of the home, guests can retire to the privacy of an additional spacious suite that includes includes a walk-in closet, lanai, ensuite with dual sinks, large walk-in shower, and outdoor shower.

Thoughtful choices in efficiency and sustainability.

Tropical modernism architecture embraces a minimalist aesthetic and the latest in technology while providing a high level of function and efficiency.

“Designing for tropical climates is very different than for dryer zones,” says Michael McLychok, “Material selections are one of the first areas that make a difference in maintaining a tropical home. The way in which the home is designed should be open to the trade winds, while roof structures and lengths of eaves help to keep the home cool.”

Zoned climate controls throughout the home provide comfort across the day as needed. The eco-friendly solar hot water system helps you reduce your environmental footprint and save on energy costs.

The seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces.

Like all great island homes, the integration of indoor and outdoor living spaces creates a seamless transition between the two. The spacious covered lanai is adorned with exquisite Puka lava stone, with plenty of room for lounge seating and a large dining table. Entertaining is made easy with the BBQ kitchen, large counter, and abundant storage.

Days are enjoyed with a refreshing dip in the infinity edge pool and taking in the views. Intricately designed lava rock walls and lush landscaping encircle the property, ensuring your privacy and security. When evening falls, stories are shared around the sunken fire pit, with sparks of revelry lifting into the night sky.
