Seaside Splendor

A Kapalua estate proves that contemporary luxury and nature don't have to be mutually exclusive.

The great room’s orientation draws the eye to a whale-sized ocean view. Interior designer Persis Hataria of Ahura Designs, Inc., ensured the guest-ready space emphasized comfort; cozy couches and chairs are made of durable—and wet-swimsuit friendly—outdoor fabrics.

Prior to the renovation, Sara stayed at the property so she could absorb its nuances. “I wanted to know how it worked—the breezes, the sounds, the light,” she explains. And when the project was completed in 2017, she packed an overnight bag and flew to Maui to stay in one of the newly remodeled guest suites and inspect her handiwork. “I needed to see it all done . . . and give it my approval,” she laughs.

The verdict? “It’s like living in a sculpture,” Sara says.

Craig agrees. “It’s magnificent. I wouldn’t change a thing.”

Each guest suite has been designed to reflect one of the four elements: fire, water, air, and earth. Fleetwood sliders open to a sun-drenched lānai flanked by an outdoor shower for al fresco bathing.
