It’s the epitome of beach lifestyle, located on a stretch of Oahu’s coastline that’s a literal playground for surfers all year.

It exudes luxury with its use of premium materials like marble floors, African Mahogany, Soapstone, Oak, and more. The detached guest quarters help you be the perfect host without disturbing the privacy of the main home.
