I am so proud of my dear friend Dahlia and her amazing resort estate in Kauai, Hawaii. Often leased to high-profile visitors, the home and surrounding property is absolutely breathtaking.
Luxury Retreats has published a fantastic article on Dahlia and the property.
“Dali Hale Estate is a spectacular 6,000 sq ft plantation perched on lush bluffs above Kauai’s iconic North Shore coastline. Perfect for friends or family gatherings of up to 12, this contemporary Hawaiian dream villa presents panoramic views from lush tropical mountains to crashing Pacific waves. You even have a direct view across the bay to Kilauea Lighthouse, an iconic local landmark.
Your pool terrace is worthy of any high-end spa, boasting an ocean-views, contemporary gazebo with cushioned banquettes and designer deck chairs. A sheltered lanai wraps the rest of the home and features stylish outdoor furnishings for al fresco meals, lounging, or napping on a cozy daybed. If the view of Secret Beach becomes too tempting, it’s only a 5-minute walk down to its secluded shores. Upon your return, you can rinse off under al fresco showers. Drink in stunning sunsets and colorful cocktails every evening, before closing the day in your bubbling hot tub.
Inside, the villa’s aesthetic puts a modern spin on traditional Pacific and Balinese influences. Light pours in through floor-to-ceiling French doors and picture windows, while louvered shutters and fans circulate fresh, ocean breezes. Experience multiple lounge and living areas where you can enjoy peaceful moments with a book. The media room is centered around a 55″ flatscreen with home-theater system and Direct TV. The vast gourmet kitchen houses new, stainless steel appliances amid a charming dark wood breakfast bar and custom wood dining table.
Fall asleep to the sound of rolling waves in any of the seven bedrooms. Each one is spacious, and adorned with fine, soft linens. The bedrooms contain an elegant mixture of furniture made from natural materials, such as rattan, teak and bamboo. Many rooms features direct outdoor access and well-appointed en-suites. Upstairs, the Master suite holds a California King size bed, and opens out to a private, ocean-view lanai.
Kauai’s North Shore is one of the most impressive sights in all of Hawaii. Rugged mountains give way to golden beaches. Drive the coast in search of your favorite stretches of sand. Stop in Hanalei for lunch where you’ll find a classic, crescent shaped beach flanked by gentle bohemian streets. Princeville is home to the islands most exclusive resorts, as well as fine dining, shopping and golf experiences. There’s a world of nature to explore, and guided tours to unforgettable waterfalls, valleys and mountains can be arranged.”
