If you want to experience the good life on your next Hawaiian getaway, consider a stay in a multimillion-dollar vacation rental home while soaking up the sun along Kauai’s South Shore.
Ordinary folks can stay in upscale private residences while rubbing elbows with well-heeled neighbors.
The Lodge at Kukui’ula is a resort community within an exclusive enclave previously accessible only to property owners.
Luxury, of course, comes at a price.
Two-bedroom Club Cottages start at $1,000 a night, and four-bedroom Club Villas start at $1,700 a night.
Overnight guests have full access to the same amenities enjoyed by owners, including:
— An up-country farm. Given the resort stretches inland from the Pacific Ocean, guests can pick their own fruits, herbs and veggies with which to cook in their top-end kitchens;
— An 18-hole course designed by former pro Tom Weiskopf that’s located in a spectacular setting along the coastline; and
— The Spa at Kukui’ula, an 18,000-square-foot facility known for its Seven Step Wet Ritual, a treatment that uses ingredients grown in the spa’s own garden.
