A Remarkable, One-of-a-Kind Property

The Headlands of  Kalanipu'u is a truly remarkable, one-of-a-kind property.  It is located on the southeast corner of Kauai.  It is situated minutes from Lihue Town, Lihue Airport, restaurants, shopping, schools and midway between the North and South Shores.

This incomparable property consists of a total of 1,395 acres surrounded by ocean, river, and harbor frontage and has two additional “kuleana” legal parcels in addition to the large 1395 acre parcel.  A total of 3 parcels. The terrain is remarkably diverse, rugged, and pristine, rising from the ocean at sea level up to approximately 1,600 feet in elevation.

The Headlands have areas of the least constrictive conservation subzones.  With the large parcel and two additional smaller Kuleana  properties;  there is the  potential for “consolidation and resubdivision”.   If approved, it will allow adjustments to the current parcel  boundaries.  This would maximize the property potential.   This will require an environmentally friendly planner and architect to design homes that blend into the building site and take advantage of the various unobstructed and spectacular views.

There are currently no utilities servicing the property.  This would allow the homes to be built that will make the smallest of carbon footprints by living “off the grid”. Imagine the  feeling of solitude and extreme privacy.    And yet,  it will still be 5 to 10 minutes from town and “civilization”.

The possibilities are endless…..Create hiking and walking trails through the mountains  and valleys and along the shoreline and  within the property.   These trails will have unobstructed Pacific Ocean, Hulēʻia stream and Nawiliwili Harbor views. The Pacific Ocean  frontage goes  for miles. Go kayaking up the Hulēʻia stream to the ancient Menehune Fishpond.   The views of the iconic mountains, mountain ridges and valleys are also truly magnificent.  Incidentally, you will own three of the mountains you are viewing : Kalanipu’u, Keopaweo and Hokunui. These could be your destinations  for several great hikes.

Access to the property is an adventure of its own!  You could create a helipad as Lihue airport is located   5 minutes away from the property with a number of helicopter companies doing business there.  Another possibility is to come across the river from the harbor by boat (only a 5-minute trip!) and then moor your boat at your property.  You will also have land access by an easement through the very famous neighbor ranch (Kipu Ranch).

This is a unique opportunity to own a very private, serene, and captivating piece of Kauai.
