What vacation dreams are made of
The start of summer has us dreaming of lazy days in the sand, so it’s fitting that today’s featured home is a waterfront stunner in Hawaii. Located on 160 feet of prized Poipu Beach in Kaua’i, this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath property was designed by famed Seattle architect Ralph Anderson—known as the Father of Pioneer Square—as a classic beach house.
Called Hale Luana, the home is situated on a sleepy side street behind a tall lava rock wall and bougainvillea. It’s modestly sized at 1,851 square feet, although the listing does come with an adjacent 490-square-foot guest house.
When building, Anderson anchored the bones of the house with lava rock pillars and then oriented each space towards the ocean. The home features Anderson’s signature exposed wood vaulted ceilings, an expansive window and sliding door system, and breezy outdoor patio and pool areas.
