There is much to this beachfront estate, part of its worth lies in its location, on Kapalua Place, a gated community, where only five estates have been built on Oneloa Bay. The estate is entered through a Kapalua community gate, and then a private estate gate as well. Kapalua Place is the only private beachfront gated community on Maui. But there is more to this estate than its locale. There is a hint in the name: Hale Ali’i Kapalua – meaning both House of Kings or Kapalua Palace, both inferring profound commitment and balancing of location, culture, and interior design.
From where the owner stands or sits, the view of the ocean and the neighboring island of Molokai is just one exceptional sight: but there is another. Facing the sea is a popular ocean route for Humpback whales and dolphins – they can be seen, almost any time of year, from the master suites, lanais, living and dining rooms, almost anywhere in the home.
The estates interior living space is 7,475 sq. ft. but is actually closer to 10,000 ft under roof, and is on .70 acres. Gardens here include plumeria, gardenia and a variety of palm and coconut trees. Across the large courtyard and circular drive is the finished five-car garage designed to accommodate a second floor Ohana (a separate living space for a maid’s quarters or a mother-in-law residence.)
