There are few reasons why one would ever want to leave their home when it offers an entirely private oasis.
At these elite estates, it's hard to find a reason why one would have to venture to resort pools - or even to the beach - when crisp, clear waters are located in the privacy of your own home. From exotic water features to elegantly designed jacuzzis, we selected a few homes that offer the finest pools in paradise.
7505 MAKENA ROAD, MAKENA HI
There are few homes on Maui with as perfect a pool as this expansive Makena Estate. The pool is nestled on a 4,000-square-foot lanai, which overlooks the clear, azure waters of South Maui.
This massive 10,000-square-foot estate is perfect for entertaining family and friends. An epic private cinema is located on the pool deck, where an outdoor theatre soars above the spacious lanai. With eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms, this home is undoubtedly one of the finest custom-built masterpieces on island.
222 KEOAWA STREET, KAPALUA HI
Perched atop the Kapalua Resort, this 6-acre estate offers sweeping views from Lanai to Molokai - all from the comforts of the breathtaking pool. Enjoy unrivaled vistas of Maui’s west coast from the pool deck, which is situated to provide ultimate privacy and tranquility.
The exquisitely-designed home is located in Honolua Ridge, one of West Maui’s most elite communities. In addition to the stunning pool and spa, the home features a covered lanai, chef’s kitchen, media room, two fireplaces and three car garage.
85 E WAIPIO ROAD, HAIKU HI
Gaze out to the clear, azure waters of the Pacific Ocean at this luxurious oceanfront estate. Located in lush Haiku, residents can enjoy peaceful Upcountry living with panoramic vistas that sweep from the sea to the slopes of Haleakala.
Nestled on 4 acres with entry via a private cul de sac, peace and seclusion are undeniable attributes of this property. The expansive saline pool is perched atop a cliff just above Maui’s north shore, where residents can enjoy an in-ground hot tub.
315 PAUWELA ROAD, HAIKU HI
Enjoy the utmost privacy and seclusion at this tropical estate, where the pool — and the expansive lanai that surrounds it — are truly the focal point. Nestled in the heart of lush Haiku, the pool and home are surrounded by tropical landscaping and verdant flora and fauna.
Invite family and friends to enjoy a day by the pool, or take a dip in the jacuzzi under the stars. This is truly one of the most special historical estates on Maui.
220 OHAOHA PLACE, MAKAWAO HI
Shops, businesses and restaurants are only minutes away, yet this private Upcountry estate offers unrivaled seclusion. Through the property’s gates, tropical flora and fauna serve as a barrier between the outside world and your own saltwater pool and grotto. The pool was designed as the ultimate oasis with a beach entry and lava rock edges. Turtle and fish mosaics line the pool, mimicking Maui’s abundant tied pools.
