Almost a year after it first hit the market with a $24 million price tag, a just-like-new residence near Hanalei Bay, on the sought-after North Shore of the Hawaii island of Kauai, has popped up for sale again. But you’ll still need a substantial chunk of change to pick up the custom-built bungalow, which is now listed for $18 million.
Scott Sloan—who previously owned a Los Angeles film production company, and is most known for the independent features Dog Gone Love, Steaming Milk, and Jack and Jill vs. the World—and his wife Brittany, acquired a three-quarter-acre property for $2.8 million some 10 years ago. The Santa Barbara-based couple then subdivided the lot, renovated and sold an existing structure known as the “Bounty House” for $3.5 million in 2018, and enlisted California architect Kevin A. Clark to craft a new four-bedroom, five-bath vacation house for them on the remaining half-acre of land.

Completed in October 2022, the board-and-batten and corrugated copper-roof structure is nestled amid a double corner lot, just steps from world-class surf breaks, beaches, hiking trails, and the shops and restaurants of Hanalei Town. Tucked away behind automated tropical hardwood gates and a lava rock wall, the stylish abode has a little more than 3,700 square feet boasting wide-plank oak floors, high ceilings, wood-paneled walls and loads of built-ins throughout, plus Lutron lighting, audio-visual, solar and Tesla Powerwall systems. There’s also more than 1,000 square feet of outdoor space adorned with Ipe-wood decks and railings.
Especially standing out is an open-concept great room featuring a soaring living room with an integrated entertainment center and sliding glass doors spilling outside. A dining area with a built-in banquette connects to the kitchen, which is outfitted with custom cabinetry, white marble countertops, an expansive eat-in island, and high-end Miele, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances.
Elsewhere is a primary bedroom suite displaying a sitting area and walk-in closet, as well as a spa-inspired bath flaunting dual vanities, a huge granite soaking tub and access to an open-air rainfall shower for two people. Topping it all off are lush professionally landscaped grounds overlooking picturesque mountain vistas, and hosting a custom “spool” with an electric cover and wraparound lanai sporting a built-in Kalamazoo grill, along with an attached single-car garage.
Sold fully furnished, complete with indoor/outdoor artwork, the turnkey home is being offered by Neal Norman of Hawaii Life.
