Welcome to Kauai’s North Shore

Majestic, exclusive community full of serenity and beautiful views
The North Shore of Kauai is home to some of the island's most beautiful beaches, waterfalls, and mountains. When you think of the exclusive North Shore, the terms “oasis” and “paradise” come to mind. Living here means feeling the ocean’s breeze, hearing the crashing of waves, and being surrounded by lush jungle at every turn. 
The breathtaking North Shore of Kauai is home to hundreds of marvelous estates both on the waterfront and further inland. This gives all active home-buyers the opportunity to find the home of their dreams, whether they prefer to have the privacy of flora all around them or immediate access to the glittering ocean waters. There’s really no right or wrong answer because every home is as majestic as the next.
