The island of Kauai is known for its lush verdant landscape and beautiful green mountain slopes. The Wailua Homesteads neighborhood is positioned to embrace the spectacular and dramatic views from an elevated perspective. As you drive up Kuamoo Road in Wailua, from where the Wailua River meets the Pacific Ocean, you wind your way up the hill, passing scenic ocean and valley vistas and the famous Opaekaa Falls along the way. The neighborhoods comprising the Wailua Homesteads have both a residential and rural feel. There are streets with homes on smaller (5,000 sq ft) lots, and streets with larger parcels of acreage.
Fruit trees & tropical foliage are at home in the landscape of this Wailua Homesteads Property, situated on a generous acre lot.
