Kennedy Wilson to Auction Six Luxurious Hawaiian Residences

On Tuesday, Dec. 28, Kennedy Wilson will open bidding on six residences at Wainani at Poipu in exotic sun-paradise Kauai. Starting bids as low as $45,000 with asking prices from $1,075,000 to $1,495,000 brings island lifestyle within your grasp. The auction will begin at 1 p.m. at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa, 1571 Poipu Road, Koloa, Kauai, HI 96756. Try to arrive no later than 12 p.m. (noon) if registered for the auction, which will last approximately one hour.

Registered bidders should also check out the “How to Buy at Auction” informational seminar, located at Wainani at Poipu Auction Information Model on Monday, Dec. 27 at 4 p.m. The free seminar will familiarize you with the auction process and bidding strategies, and will close with a live practice auction hosted by a Kennedy Wilson auctioneer.

The six residences up for auction provide 3 bedrooms and up to 3 and one-half baths, with up to 3,188 square feet of living space, including garage and lanai. The three model homes will be sold furnished and select homes have swimming pools. By combining traditional Hawaiian plantation design with luxurious modern conveniences, tropical breezes will swirl through vaulted ceilings and recessed sliding glass/screen pocket doors. Rich interiors include the finest hardwoods, fabrics, tile, stone and glass, complimenting appliances and fixtures in kitchens and bathrooms. As windows frame ocean, mountain, and golf course vistas, residents can enjoy Hawaiian sunsets on covered lanais equipped with built-in barbecues.

With eight world-class golf courses on Kauai, including Wainani’s Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed course at the Kiahuna Golf Club; the famed Tunnel of Trees; and the island’s Waimea Canyon, better known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific by American author Mark Twain, the best of resort-style amenities and exceptional recreation at Wainani at Poipu (“crashing waves” in Hawaiian) further broaden the appeal for relaxing yet exotic island-living.

“On December 28th, auction winners will finally realize their dreams of exotic island-living while reaping huge savings in the process,” said Rhett Winchell, president of Kennedy Wilson Auction Group. Successful bidders can choose from a range of financing programs offered by First Hawaiian Bank. Purchasers are also eligible for a special credit.
