Upon arrival the architectural details will capture your intrigue. The double Mahogany gate doors guides you into the home where you are embraced with a sense of ultimate comfort and style. The masterful craftsmanship, exceptional design, alluring waterfall pool, and intelligent floor plan sets a new standard of indoor-outdoor living that comes together to create one of the most beautiful homes you have ever scene. A living piece of art and prized property.

The house, built in 1938, was a project by designer Arik Salvador, and began with a wish to save a traditional, yet dilapidated Plantation era house. Salvador drew his inspiration from his travel throughout the tropics, Polynesia and Asia.


“From the outside, the home maintains much of the original Hawaiʻi Style architecture , and yet from within, is a zen-like retreat house which incorporates the latest in modern green building techniques,” says realtor Amber Lee. “The building materials make use of sustainably harvested tropical hardwoods, naturally resistant to environmental conditions found here in Hawaiʻi. The interior design was a product of years of traveling, and is a reflection of the melting pot of cultures that have come together to form the fabric of Hawaiʻi society.”

LOCATION & DREAM LIFESTYLE: This perfectly located home is nestled between stunning beaches. Just a pleasant stroll from Pāʻia Beach Town, voted one of the quaintest beach towns in America. Additionally, a tastefully designed permitted, private, and separate structure containing two rooms, a full bath, wet bar, and covered lanai. Easy to show.
