What is Luxury? | Big Island Real Estate

What is luxury?

Is it sunning on the deck of a 378-foot yacht?  Is it wearing a Neil Lane diamond necklace to the Oscars?  Maybe it’s a day of pampering at the Talise Spa above the Arabian Gulf.

It’s difficult to say what luxury entails.   On the Big Island it’s often simpler.  Strolling on a secluded beach in Waipio Valley is a luxurious experience.  Being able to see every single star from your lanai in Kohala Ranch is breathtaking.  And living next to a waterfall cascading into the Pacific is sublime.

Did that last one peak your interest?  Let me introduce you to the Waterfalling Estate, a home crafted to showcase twin waterfalls streaming down into the ocean.  This 5 bedroom/ 5.5 bath three-story private residence is best described as an experience.

The penthouse level features dual master suites with “his and hers” bathrooms and private lanais, a centrally located fitness room, and an executive office overlooking the ocean.

A game room, bar, and two additional suites (each with private bathrooms) are located on the lower “pool level” and feature telescoping doors, allowing guests to take in unobstructed ocean views and refreshing coastal breezes.

Did I mention the helicopter landing pad?  Park your helicopter on the upper level of the estate and then ride down on a 52-inch round Daytona pneumatic elevator.
