Encompassing up to 3,400 square feet, the one- to four-bedroom oceanfront oases were overseen by Hawaiian firms de Reus architects and Philpotts Interiors.
The residences showcase imported hardwoods and exotic stones, which blend well with the natural hues and sleek lines of the Hawaiian homes.

Turnkey and custom-furnished residences include furniture and decor from Rudin, Artemide, Arteriors, and B&B Italia. Each modern residence features an original art piece by local Hawaiian artist Jaline Pol, which adds a touch of island charm to the home.
With floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass walls throughout, the residences effortlessly blend into the outdoors and offer ready beach access. Outfitted with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, the chef’s kitchens are connected by oceanfront glass terraces. The ground-level properties come with secluded plunge pools that look out to the scintillating Pacific Ocean.
