Along Kauai’s sunny South Shore there’s a soulful place for your family to escape, to reconnect, to build lasting memories. Magical in its beauty, abundant in its offerings, Kukui‘ula provides a setting like no other to create a one-of-a-kind home in the Hawaiian Islands.

Set apart on a dramatic promontory along the western edge of Kukui‘ula, Kula Makai is an oceanfront estate enclaves of homes and homesites on Kauai. Breathtaking panoramic views encompassing the mountains, coastline and migrating humpback whales await you.

Architect John Sather, of Swaback Partners, has been the principal community designer and land planner for Kukui‘ula. His firm has managed major projects around the world where the goal is to create precedent-setting designs. John gives us this insight into the history of Kula Makai, “We knew the land of Kula Makai was very special, and quite frankly one we spent a lot of time studying, analyzing and wondering if it should be left open, if it should be a part of the golf course, or for community buildings, or whether it should be very special homesites for those who really felt greatly attached to this land.”

John goes on to say, “The trade winds that are coming, the beautiful sunsets, the views not only to the ocean but up to the mountains, all of that weaves together within a spot in Kukui‘ula like no other.”

Extraordinary Homesite Opportunities.

Each of the nineteen Kula Makai homesites represents an extraordinary opportunity to design and build a world-class home reflecting the land’s storied heritage and location. Homesites within the gated neighborhood of Kula Makai range from 22,998-square feet to 44,008-square feet.

Bay Area Architect, Shay Zak describes Kula Makai this way, ”You’re right there on the edge. You have full panoramic 180-degree views, and it feels like you’re on the edge of the world. It’s fantastic.”

Within the enclave of Kula Makai, you’ll find Homesite E. This exceptional offering is 24,132 square feet and features panoramic seascapes, warm sunsets and stunning whitewater views of Lawai Bay. Situated along the 15th fairway, the homesite is graded with a full set of permitted plans by Architect Keith Kelly. The 5-bedroom, 5.5 bath home design offers gracious indoor/outdoor living spaces that optimizes the unique qualities of its location.

“We believe architecture should respect and be informed by its surroundings. As designers, it’s our responsibility to create spaces that honor the sites, landscapes, and climates where they reside,” says Kelly. When asked what his clients ask or expect from his firm, Kelly says their response is typically, “Design something magnificent!”

A little further west is a second homesite opportunity, Kula Makai Lot 9. Perched above the 16th fairway, with vistas framed by lush landscapes, the vast Pacific Ocean and verdant mountains, this 27,787 square foot homesite presents an extraordinary opportunity to concept, design and build a world-class home. This spacious property is the perfect setting for a gracious residence that provides room for an ohana cottage, and welcoming outdoor spaces that take full advantage of its expansive views.

Nestled at the tranquil western edge of Kula Makai, Homesite S presents an unparalleled opportunity to craft your dream home amidst panoramic vistas and serene surroundings. Spanning a generous 36,653 square feet, this homesite invites you to immerse yourself in the beauty of Kauai’s landscape. Perched gracefully alongside the meticulously groomed fairway of Kukuiʻula’s signature 14th hole, this homesite offers a seamless integration of natural beauty and refined elegance in one of Kula Makai’s most coveted homesites.

“In Hawaii you want the house to breath as if it’s part of the landscape,” says Architect Tom Kundig, of the award-winning firm Olson Kundig. “If you look at the tradition of Hawaiian architecture, your house in the best of all situations is between mauka (mountain) and makai (sea), and how you let that house breath between those two realms—and that becomes a magic place.”

“There are those who have a profound need to experience the extraordinary.  Who prefer a place with an abundance of opportunities to play, cultivate, and celebrate. Immersed in sublime beauty. Rooted in a soulful reverence for ohana and tradition. If that is you, Kukui‘ula may be your place,” adds John Sather, “Here, at Kula Makai, you’ll find a setting like no other to create a home in the Hawaiian Islands.”
