FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT RESIDENCE - AN UNFORGETTABLE VACATION EXPERIENCE!

Mauna Kea House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The only Frank Lloyd Wright home built in Hawaii is now available for your next vacation. This 3 bedroom/3.5 bath, architecturally significant residence will comfortably accommodate a family of 6 in a setting that is truly one-of-a-kind. Features of the home include a complete kitchen with upgraded appliances, an expansive living area (with a fireplace) and an outdoor lava-rock hot tub overlooking the ocean and breathtaking mountain views. The bedrooms are located upstairs and “float” over the main level of the house. The master bedroom has superior views with a private bathroom, walk-in closet and private outdoor balcony. The second bedroom has it’s own private bathroom with a queen size bed. The third bedroom has two twin beds and the fourth bedroom is currently being used as an office and/or playroom. There is a grass yard in front of the home that is shaded in the morning, making for the perfect space to have an outdoor breakfast or to practice yoga.

This architectural gem was constructed on a 3-acre gated property between the Kohala Coast and the town of Waimea. The half-moon shaped residence is perched over the Waiaka stream with expansive ocean views a perfect panoramic view of three of the Big Island’s awe-inspiring volcanoes (Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and Hualalai). Throughout the landscaped property guests will find numerous secluded seating areas, a hammock and a small soccer field. Unique to this FLW home, guests are only a short 10 minute drive to beautiful white sand beaches, world class resorts and plentiful golf courses on the Kohala Coast. Also within a short drive is the country town of Waimea where bountiful farmer’s markets will supply you with all the fresh locally-grown ingredients you will need to make memorable meals during your stay.

HISTORY OF HOME:

Completed in 1995 the home was commissioned by Sanderson Sims who partnered with Taliesin Associated Architects, John Rattenbury and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to bring the unbuilt plan to life. Originally conceived for the Cornwell Family in Pennsylvania in 1954, the 3,700 sq. foot passive solar hemicycle home embodies FLW’s principles of organic architecture in which the structure blends harmoniously with the natural landscape. A series of towering glass doors topped with windows reveals floor to ceiling views along the entire span of the home. The second floor appears to float over the expansive curved main living area and is in fact suspended from the beans in the ceiling and hidden steel frame circumnavigating the home.

The home has rounded walls made of coral aggregate block from Oahu, FLW’s signature Cherokee-red concrete floors, and is built into a hill offering indoor/outdoor living that is sheltered from the consistent trade winds. It is furnished with licensed reproductions of original FLW-designed furniture including his ‘Barrel’ chairs, ‘Origami’ chairs from 1949, and ‘Taliesin’ floor lamps. The home has extensive built-in seating per the FLW design, as well as custom built furniture to integrate with the home’s round walls. A series of opaque skylights bring natural light into the home and warm lighting behind opaque glass illuminates the house at night.

5 night minimum - maximum occupancy of 6 people
