The only Frank Lloyd Wright home built in Hawaii is now available for your next vacation. This 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom architecturally significant residence will comfortably accommodate a family in a setting that is truly one-of-a-kind. Features of the home include a complete kitchen with upgraded appliances, an expansive living area (with a fireplace) and an outdoor lava-rock hot tub overlooking a seasonal stream and breathtaking mountain views. The bedrooms are located upstairs and float over the main level of the house. The master bedroom has superior views with a private bathroom, walk-in closet and private outdoor balcony. The second bedroom has it's own private bathroom with a queen size bed. The third bedroom has two twin beds and the fourth bedroom is currently being used as an office and/or playroom. There is a grass yard in front of the home that is shaded in the morning, making for the perfect space to have an outdoor breakfast or to practice yoga.

This architectural gem was constructed on a 3-acre gated property between the Kohala Coast and the town of Waimea. This spectacular residence is perched over the Waiaka stream with ocean views and a perfect panoramic view of three of the Big Island's awe-inspiring volcanoes (Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and Hualalai). Throughout the landscaped property guests will find secluded seating areas, a hammock and a small soccer field. Unique to this FLW home, guests are only a short 10 minute drive to beautiful white sand beaches, world class resorts and plentiful golf courses on the Kohala Coast. Also within a short drive is the country town of Waimea where bountiful farmer's markets will supply you with all the fresh locally-grown ingredients you will need to make memorable meals during your stay.

HISTORY OF HOME:
Completed in 1995 the home was commissioned by Sanderson Sims who partnered with Taliesin Associated Architects, John Rattenbury and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to bring the unbuilt plan to life. Originally conceived for the Cornwell Family in Pennsylvania in 1954, the 3,700 sq. foot passive solar hemicycle home embodies FLW's principles of organic architecture in which the structure blends harmoniously with the natural landscape. A series of towering glass doors topped with windows reveals floor to ceiling views along the entire span of the home. The second floor appears to float over the expansive curved main living area and is in fact suspended from the beams in the hidden steel frame circumnavigating the home.

The home has rounded walls made of coral aggregate block from Oahu, FLW's signature Cherokee-red concrete floors, and is built into a hill offering indoor/outdoor living that is sheltered from the consistent trade winds. It is furnished with licensed reproductions of original FLW-designed furniture including his Barrel chairs, Origami chairs from 1949 and Taliesin floor lamps. The home has extensive built-in seating per the FLW design, as well as custom built furniture to integrate with the home's round walls. A series of opaque skylights bring natural light into the home and warm lighting behind opaque glass illuminates the house at night.

Amenities include fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washer and dryer with detergent provided, WIFI at no charge, iron and ironing board and hair dryer.

Our resort office is located at the Mauna Lani Terrace and is open daily from 9:00am - 5:00pm for guests who need assistance, have questions or would like recommendations for activities, beaches, restaurants, services, etc. We are also available after-hours to assist in case of a property-related emergency.

A car rental is HIGHLY recommended, public transportation & taxi service is limited.

Other things to note
The State of Hawaii requires that we collect 17.962% tax on the rent and additional fees (which is INCLUDED in the price).
