5050 Makena Road
“Wow” is the first word that comes to mind for this stunning contemporary direct oceanfront estate. Perfectly situated on an intimate cove on the Makena Maui shoreline, the residence is a “livable work of art” — thanks to striking ocean and coastal views with whales and turtles cruising right off the property and unique architecture by world-renowned architect Guy Dreier. The exquisite five-bedroom, five and one- half bath residence rests on over 22,190 square feet of land, and captures Hawaii’s indoor-outdoor living in beautiful form with soaring ceilings, dramatic finishes, and an innovative floorplan. The main level is a flowing grand room with multiple living and dining areas with a showcase chef’s kitchen all opening to the expansive deck, pool and views beyond. The exquisite master suite and three guest suites all feature private ocean lanais.
