Looking for Luxe? Consider the Lodge at Kukui’ula on Kauai
Planning a luxe vacation? Check out the website for the Lodge Collection at Kukui’ula to select from the only vacation accommodations which include the use of Club at Kukui’ula and her wonderful amenities. Looking for the best spa on the island of Kauai? The Spa at Kukui’ula is ahhh-mazing!
Looking for the luxe vacation home to purchase? As a Poipu Kauai broker, one of the reasons I am so excited to sell property in the Lodge Collection is the limited availability. The number of units for the Lodge Collection is limited to a total of 80 units including homes and condos.
Currently, there are 50 units planned with the potential for 30 more homes and condos within the Lodge Collection. All will offer the opportunity for vacation rental guests to use the members only club amenities – Tom Weiskopf 18-hole golf course, spa, pool, restaurants, Plantation Club, Fitness Center and Gym with regular exercise classes, and more. Enjoy the spa for a guided spa ritual with dry sauna, steam sauna, cold plunge, and hot tub, either before or after a relaxing massage. This is a great place to relax and enjoy Kauai!
Why is the Use of the Club Important?
It enhances the desirability of the property for vacation rental guests. Many of the vacation home buyers I meet at Hawaii Life’s Poipu office, located at the Shops at Kukui’ula, are looking for a vacation home. Some want to lock up and leave, and the majority want to offset the cost of home ownership with rental income. Because the majority prefer rental income, and the Kukui’ula properties which include the use of club amenities have the potential for higher daily and weekly rental rates than properties at Kukui’ula without club use for rental guests. I expect the resale demand will remain strong for the Lodge properties.
Not all Kukui’ula properties are eligible for use as a vacation rental, so if privacy is your primary concern, ask me about the Mauka Custom Home Sites. There are other Kukui’ula homes and condos which allow weekly short-term vacation rentals, however, rental guests are not allowed access to the club amenities. In order to be eligible for the Lodge Program, there is specific criteria to be eligible for rental guests to use the Plantation Club and Club amenities:
- Must be an eligible property
- Must purchase an acceptable furnishings package from the choices provided
- Must enroll in the Parrish Collection rental management program
What Are the Eligible Properties?
Currently, there are fifty eligible properties either completed, under construction, or planned. All have neighborhood names which begin with the word “Club.” This includes the Club Cottages, Club Villas, and Club Bungalows.
