Ka Lae Kiki, a one-and-only Hawaiian ocean front estate, is on the market for the first time in over a half century.
Located on a revered oceanfront point along the Poipu Beach coastline, this magical vacation rental property is best known for its unique history, oceanfront pool, architecture and address. Most recently, and across the street, Alexander & Baldwin and DMB & Associates developed the notable Club at Kukui'ula complete with world class amenities and high-end homes.
In 1947, Judge Philip LaVergne Rice acquired the land to build Ka Lae Kiki. Born on Kauai and nominated by President Eisenhower to the Territorial Supreme Court, Judge Rice soon became the Hawaii's Territorial Chief Justice.
Purchased by prominent Los Angeles businessman Lowry McCaslin in 1957, Ka Lae Kiki became part of the McCaslin's legacy. In the 1990's the family engaged architect Jim Morton, best known for his resort work in Hawaii and Lake Tahoe, to design the residence anew. The new home's positioning and view-centric floorplan display Morton's deep appreciation for the property's significance.
With 3/4s of an acre and nearly 500 hundred feet of ocean frontage, the estate is among the most expansive oceanfront properties in coveted Poipu Beach. The architecture and interiors exhibit the relaxed style and comfort that makes Hawaiian design universally desired. Windows and doors cast open wide and display unrivaled coastal and white-water perspectives. Each of the 4 bedroom suites and the great room command oceanfront locations and framed views. A separate media room is the lounge for any game day.
Ka Lae Kiki's signature remains the stunning saltwater pool constructed into the forward edge of the property. Unmatched anywhere on Kauai, the pool is a haven for gatherings.
