Ka Lae Kiki, a one-and-only Hawaiian oceanfront estate, is on the market for the first time in over a half century. Located on a revered oceanfront point along the Poipu Beach coastline, this magical vacation rental property is best known for its unique history, oceanfront pool, architecture and address. Most recently, and across the street, Alexander & Baldwin and DMB & Associates developed the notable Club at Kukui’ula complete with world-class amenities and high-end homes.
In 1947, Judge Philip LaVergne Rice acquired the land to build Ka Lae Kiki. Born on Kauai and nominated by President Eisenhower to the Territorial Supreme Court, Judge Rice soon became the Hawaii’s Territorial Chief Justice. Purchased by prominent Los Angeles businessman Lowry McCaslin in 1957, Ka Lae Kiki became part of the McCaslin’s legacy. In the 1990s, the family engaged architect Jim Morton, best known for his resort work in Hawaii and Lake Tahoe, to design the residence anew. The new home’s positioning and view-centric floor plan display Morton’s deep appreciation for the property’s significance.
With three quarters of an acre and nearly 500 feet of ocean frontage, the estate is among the most expansive oceanfront properties in coveted Poipu Beach. The architecture and interiors exhibit the relaxed style and comfort that makes Hawaiian design universally desired. Windows and doors cast open wide and display unrivaled coastal and white-water perspectives. Each of the four bedroom suites and the great room command oceanfront locations and framed views. A separate media room is the lounge for any game day.
Ka Lae Kiki’s signature remains the stunning saltwater pool constructed into the forward edge of the property. Unmatched anywhere on Kauai, the pool is a haven for gatherings.

A Kauai oceanfront estate in Poipu, consisting of three residences, each on its own lot, is on the market for a bulk sale of $15 million. Located 30 minutes from the Lihue Airport and within the Poipu Beach resort area on a quiet side street, this stunning property of over half an acre delivers commanding uninterrupted coastal and whitewater views.The compound’s three unique custom-built homes are each designed within the same classic Hawaiian architecture made famous by Hawaii’s legendary architect, the late Charles Dickey. Split pitched roof lines, generous eaves and a reliance upon lanai spaces that blend the lines between indoors and out make each home ideally suited for Kauai living. Here, classic architecture meets a modern high style. Whereas the islands are relaxed and open, so are the floor plans. The emphasis on openness, fine finish features, custom wood flooring and cabinetry bond the experience. Buyers seeking the perfect home, multi-generation estate or a destination property for friends and family/corporate retreat take note: this property sets the gold standard for sophisticated living and entertaining. The compound is being sold in its entirety in bulk. It is a private estate and NOT a vacation rental property.
