Hawaii’s real estate has an unfair advantage when it comes to beauty contests. Hawaii properties consistently win awards. This incredible home with an infinity pool on the island of Kauai recently was chosen by visitors to HGTV.com as the winner of the Ultimate House Hunt. This year’s finalists included 92 homes represented by 46 real estate companies across the country.

The property is perched high above the Pacific for incredible views including waves, whale sightings, and Hawaii’s famous rainbows.

It is located on Kohola Point. Kohola is the Hawaii word for the whales that frequently visit the islands during the winter months.

The home’s location keeps it above tsunami and flood zones. The property is gated and secure and is a licensed vacation rental that provides steady income.

This home is located in one of the most desirable locations on the North Shore of Kauai, with quick access to an incredible and healthy Hawaii Lifestyle, yet tucked away from the crowds at the end of a quiet and private cul-de-sac.

This expansive estate is listed by Ben Welborn and Tiffany Spencer of Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers for $8.9 million.
