Kukui’ula Club Villa 15
Floor-to-ceiling glass reveals al-fresco lava-rock showers at this thoughtfully designed cottage. Inspired by Hawaii’s traditional plantation architecture, the villa has both a main house and a separate ohana, or guest house—both with wide-open views of the surrounding gardens and golf course. You’re welcome to swim in the pools and see what’s growing on the 10-acre farm at The Club at Kukui’Ula.
Watch the Pacific meet the shore across the fairways from a private plunge pool with a tanning shelf or a shaded lanai with al-fresco sitting and dining areas, and a gas barbecue. See why Kauai is one of the best places in the world for stargazing as you linger around the firepit, or watch the smart TV with surround-sound system while catching up on your feeds over Wi-Fi.
Lava-rock walls and rich wood paneling evoke the islands’ past, while slide-away glass walls and an open-concept great-room layout are contemporary touches. Sip mai tais in the living area before dinner around the table for six. A generous breakfast bar and glass panels instead of a tiled backsplash make the fully equipped kitchen a pleasure for diners and cooks alike.
This vacation rental has three bedrooms in its main house and one bedroom in its honeymoon-worthy ohana suite, or guest cottage. All four bedrooms have king beds, en-suite bathrooms with al-fresco showers, and TVs. The ohana suite also has its own kitchenette and terrace.
Guests of Kukui’ula have the luxury of swimming in the club’s pools, booking tee times on the 18-hole golf course, and making plans for massages at the spa. Bring the family to the club’s organic farm to pick produce or fish for bass. Pick up holiday souvenirs or stop for ice cream in the former plantation buildings of Old Koloa Town and drive to four local-favorite beaches within 3 miles.
