Not all beaches in Hawaii are good for the little ones but Baby Beach in Poipu on Kauai is a secluded and generally protected beach that is great for families with infants and toddlers. With clear and shallow water, the beach is protected by the longest and widest fringing reef in the Hawaiian Islands that naturally absorbs the energy from the breaking surf. Snorkeling and tide-pooling can also found here depending on the tide.
Today’s home is a large residence on an over-sized lot, just steps from Poipu Baby Beach and a short paddle to popular surf spots. The property offers two single family homes. The main home is a light and airy four bedroom, three bath, single level, open concept floorpan with seven skylights. The second home is a two bedroom, two bath single level with ADA ramps, ductless air conditioning, a back up generator, separate photovoltaic system and an access gate to Lawai Road.
French doors in the main house open onto a large covered lanai and meticulously landscaped yard. The lush foliage and fruit trees allow plenty of privacy to each residence. Edible landscaping includes papaya, banana, avocado, orange, lime, surinam cherry, dragon fruit, small macadamia nut trees, figs, mulberry and pineapple. Plumeria trees and tropical flowers add to the lush beauty.
The recently remodeled main house includes an interior and exterior surround sound audio system as well as Brazilian Cherry hardwood and Strand Woven Natural Tigerstripe solid Bamboo wood flooring, a built in entertainment center, skylights and other fine architectural details. The main house master bedroom suite has walk-in cedar lined closet, dual sinks, oversized soaking tub/shower and a lounge area that is separated, by the main living area, from the three guest bedrooms and two baths.
Located in a prime Poipu neighborhood, it is a short walk to Shops at Kukuiula, the Beach House Restaurant, Baby Beach, and Spouting Horn. This property is listed for $1.62 million with Hawaii Life and showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
