Close your eyes and imagine the house of your dreams. Now open them. We’re willing to wager that this dreamboat of a Hawaiian villa trumps the vision in your head.
If it does, you’re in good company. HGTV fans voted this Hawaiian abode the winner of its Ultimate House Hunt 2019, a showdown of the most breathtaking luxury homes on the market.
Dubbed Kohola Point, the three-acre estate bested 92 other finalists in the 12th annual dream house face-off. “Kohola” is Hawaiian for “humpback whale,” and these behemoths can be spotted from December to April, after making a 6,000-mile journey to breed and birth their calves in the warm, tropical waters.
Perched high above the sparkling Pacific Ocean on Kauai’s North Shore, the three-acre estate capitalizes on its prime location with floor-to-ceiling windows and easy access to a sprawling patio.
Inside are four bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, a gourmet kitchen, and sleek living spaces with high ceilings and hardwoods. A swath of outdoor living space with an infinity pool, outdoor kitchen and bar, mature landscaping, and ocean that runs smack into the horizon rounds out the impressive credentials of this #vacationgoals villa.
Kohola Point, currently on the market for $8.9 million, is also a licensed vacation rental, which means you can utilize the gorgeous abode for business or pleasure.
