Koloa, Kauai, HawaiiÂ Â Â– Construction is underway on a new collection of plantation-style cottages that will be part of the lodge hospitality program at KukuiÂ‘ula.Â This collection of 15 single-family cottages will be clustered immediately adjacent to KukuiÂ‘ulaÂ’s new $100 million private club and spa that serves as the social and recreational centerpiece of the community.Â Located on the south shore of KauaÂ‘i, KukuiÂ‘ula is the first major new luxury community in HawaiÂ‘i in over a decade.
Â According to Brent Herrington, president of KukuiÂ‘ula Development Company (HAWAII), LLC, Â“The KukuiÂ‘ula Club Cottages have been specifically designed for families who tend to visit KauaÂ‘i for a week or two at a time.Â Their location adjacent to the club will allow owners to walk next door to dine, work out, enjoy a spa treatment, play golf or lounge by the pool.Â Buyers of the Club Cottages will also have the option to enter into a rental management program that enables those who rent the cottages to access the private club and golf facilities of KukuiÂ‘ula.Â”
Â Added Herrington: Â“These beautifully furnished cottages will be the ideal choice for rental guests seeking a luxurious residential environment with the amenities and services of a world-class private club.Â The cottages will also be a great resource for KukuiÂ‘ula property owners whose new homes are under construction or who need additional space to accommodate family and friends.Â”
Â The 1,000-acre KukuiÂ‘ula community is being developed by an affiliate of A&B Properties, Inc., a subsidiary of Alexander & Baldwin, Inc. of Honolulu, and DMB Associates, Inc. of Scottsdale, Arizona.
Â KukuiÂ‘ulaÂ’s Club Cottages start at $2.35 million for a fully furnished residence.Â These approximately 2,200 square foot residences reflect the charm and character of KauaÂ‘iÂ’s gracious plantation-style architecture, are luxuriously appointed and especially designed for indoor/outdoor living.Â A covered entry with dark wood decking opens into a gracious great room complete with living room, dining area and gourmet kitchen.Â Expansive glass doors disappear into the walls blending the indoor living space with a large covered rear lanai, which functions as an outdoor living and dining room.Â
Â Dual master bedroom suites offer thoughtfully designed closets with built-in shelving, drawers and electronic safes.Â Each master bath includes two sinks, a pedestal tub, and an interior shower that opens to a private outdoor garden shower.Â Finishes include dark ipe wood flooring throughout, black granite kitchen countertops and honed Carrera marble in the baths.Â The kitchen features a top of the line stainless steel gas range, refrigerator and dishwasher.Â To provide storage for ownersÂ’ belongings when they are not in residence, a generous lockable storage space has been designed into each home, but is tucked discretely out of view.Â All indoor spaces are air-conditioned.
Â Each cottage is offered with a comprehensive, professionally designed interior furniture and fixtures package that is ready to move in and enjoy, including luxurious furnishings, linens, artwork, accessories and electronics.
Â The cottage lots are approximately 12,000-square-feet each and include lush Hawaiian landscaping, lava rock walls, stone fire pits, and personalized front yard options that range from a large private yard with open space for entertaining; a separate guest cottage with master suite, luxurious bath and wet bar; or a one-car garage with storage and an attached carport.
Â The Club Cottages are being developed by locally-owned Seina Properties LLC, the sister company of Unlimited Hawaii, the projectÂ’s general contractor.Â A leader in sustainable building, Unlimited has received numerous government and industry accolades for its stewardship efforts.Â The KukuiÂ‘ula Club Cottages are being built to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) specifications.Â The first four residences are anticipated to be completed by the end of the year.
Â Owners of the Club Cottages at KukuiÂ‘ula will enjoy full use of the amenities and services of The Club at KukuiÂ‘ula, including the main clubhouse, known as The Plantation House, the Plantation Spa (opening in April), the Golf Clubhouse, and a Tom Weiskopf-designed 18-hole championship golf course.
