The Vacation Home: Newly renovated on the stunning blue Pacific Ocean, Kauai Paradise House is a truly unique oceanfront and riverfront property featuring its own private beach, oceanfront views, 3 king-bed suites (the third of which can be converted to 2 twin beds if desired), gourmet kitchen, travertine tile floors, 3 marble bathrooms, great room with entertainment center, covered lanai, lush backyard, and private deck and dock.
This sophisticated home with a resort feel boasts thoughtful touches throughout, including Tommy Bahama furniture, luxury linens, dual master suites with king-size beds and walk-in showers, new gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line stainless-steel appliances (including toaster oven, blender and coffee maker), marble guest bathroom with large walk-in shower, spacious family room with TV and DVD/CD player, high-speed Internet, telephone, TVs and DVDs in every bedroom, gas BBQ on the covered lanai overlooking the deep blue sea, and private oceanfront deck with steps down to your own boat dock.
The Island: Kauai, the 'Garden Island,' is composed of a diverse terrain that is home to rain forests, canyons, cliffs and beaches. To the north is the rugged Na Pali district, with peaks as high as 4,000 feet, and remnants of ancient places of worship. On the island's east side, the Wailua River wends its way through dense forests and plunges over waterfalls before emptying into the Pacific Ocean. To the south is the tourist district, once the vacation destination of royalty. On the west side, is the sleepy town of Waimea, near where Captain Cook first landed. In the center of the island is Mount Wai'ale'ale, the Earth's rainiest spot.
Activities: Rent a kayak (a local vendor offers 7 days for the price of 5!) and paddle right from the private dock to the private and peaceful white sandy beach, or paddle up the quiet Wainiha River to explore the lush green island. In addition to the private beach in front of your vacation home, you can drive a few minutes north for world-famous surfing, diving and snorkeling at Tunnels Beach, or continue past the wet and dry caves to the end of the road at Haena. Snorkel there, or start your North Shore hike along Kauai's famed Na Pali coastline. Also available nearby are scuba diving, wind-surfing, sailing, deep sea fishing, submarine tours, top-flight golf courses, spas, hiking, horseback riding, helicopter tours, and shopping and dining. Alternatively, you can just relax on the lanai or private deck in the ocean breeze, or stroll across the street for the daily paper and a cup of coffee and exotic island snack at the historic Wainiha General Store, or for a hot authentic Hawaiian breakfast or lunch at Red Hot Mama's restaurant.
