Located at Kilauea on Kauai’s north shore is a one-of-a-kind private estate, as unique as this historic, scenic community that discerning visitors rate as one of the Garden Island’s top attractions.

The northernmost point of the Hawaiian Islands, Kilauea is best known for its landmark Kilauea Point Lighthouse, a National Wildlife Refuge and home to numerous species of seabirds.

At the base of Kilauea Lighthouse Point is a gated, seven-acre estate offered for sale at $18,000,000 by Realtor Donna Rice of Century 21 All Islands-Princeville. Secrets Beach Estate, named for nearby Secret Beach, which is also known locally as “Secrets,” is located on a bluff overlooking the coastal panorama and ocean to the horizon. The property includes a vast orchard of avocado and citrus trees, fenced pastures for horses, a main residence, guest house, a barn and office, tack room, garage, and swimming pool. Rice noted that it is zoned to build another luxury home.

“There is not another estate with the parallel coastline views on Kauai as Secrets Beach Estate offers. This property begins with a magnificent gated palm lined driveway. It is the crown jewel of Kauai and very special indeed,” Rice said.

The main residence opens to the expansive manicured lawn and spectacular views of the coastline and sunsets. It includes a great room with a soaring ceiling, fireplace, and open kitchen, all elegantly finished with Hawaiian hardwoods. Two bedroom / bath suites are downstairs, and a third bedroom is upstairs.

A guest suite with a bedroom, bath, and sitting area has access to the swimming pool. Perched on the ocean bluff is a guest house with a bedroom and kitchenette.

Kilauea is located approximately five miles from the resort hotels and golf courses of Princeville, where additional upscale resort development is planned. The town of Kilauea, with a population of approximately 2,300, has numerous small dining establishments, markets, and boutiques. Originally a sugar plantation community, Kilauea has over the past two or three decades attracted a permanent population with a large percentage involved in the arts and favoring an outdoor lifestyle in an unspoiled natural setting.
