Designer Vern Yip of HGTV fame recently visited Coral Gardens Estate at Makena Bay. Vern wrote a wonderful blog about contemporary Hawaiian design trends as typified by the interior of Coral Gardens, in an article titled, “Hawaiian paradise inside your home can warm away frostbite of winter”, in the March 20th edition of the Washington Post. Click Here to view Vern’s Washington Post article. Vern Yip is an interior designer and star of “Bang for Your Buck” and “Live in Vern’s House” on HGTV. The all-new interior was imported from Canada and the United States by acclaimed interior designer and decorator, James McIntyre. James McIntyre Design is an international design firm specializing in style forward residential interiors. James is well known for creating exquisitely fresh and cheerful yet comfortable contemporary living areas. After 20 years of successful installations James made his creative debut here on Maui at our very own Coral Gardens Estate.

Set directly overlooking Maui’s Makena Bay, Makena Landing, and Maluaka Beach, Coral Gardens Estate is the ideal location to enjoy exceptional ocean views and seasonal sunsets and whale watching. You’ve also likely heard of “Turtle Town”? Coral Gardens Estate is in the very heart of “Turtle Town”. From time to time a pod of dolphins may swim into the shallow waters in front of the house too! Other sea life that you may be able to view are rays, whales, tropical reef fish, monk seals, crabs, lobsters and more.

Directly from the property or from the park that adjoins the property, you can swim, snorkel, scuba dive, paddle board, and kayak. Coral Gardens Estate at Makena Bay offers the perfect indoor/outdoor living experience. From the pool patio area, there is immediate ocean access just 14 steps away on both sides of the property. To utilize these access routes you will want to wear foot protection. For sandy sloping and easy beach access, just traverse Makena Landing park for one half block and use the beach and boat ramp area to get into the horseshoe shaped bay.

Your vacation at Coral Gardens Estate will likely be most memorable for the picture-perfect panoramic ocean views. Gaze out at a panoramic azure blue sea while enjoying the infinity-edge heated pool, poolside whirlpool spa, and cabana bar. This terraced tropical haven is further enhanced with evening mood lighting throughout the garden, a Hawaiian-style thatched roof tiki bar, Stainless gas BBQ, outdoor dining, assorted lounging and seating areas, and outdoor shower. Relax on one of several padded reclining chaise lounge chairs while sunning on the very private patio.

The ocean view outdoor living areas, heated swimming pool and whirlpool spa are surrounded by tropical gardens – with the sound of the waves in the distance, it’s hard to imagine a more relaxing setting. Make the most of outdoor living with the alfresco poolside dining area, private cabana bar and gas barbecue-grill or enjoy a more formal and elegant ocean view dining setting within this comfortable home.

Within Coral Gardens Estate, the lower level of the home focuses on an expansive open-air and very modern styled great room with fully retracting sliding glass walls. The sofa set, kitchen bar counter, and indoor dining table were designed to easily accommodate eight guests. This ocean view living room is framed by an oversized HDTV and sound system. The fully equipped kitchen has top-quality appliances by Wolfe, Bosch and Sub-Zero as well as a separate wine refrigerator, Nespresso and Keurig Coffee Makers, and plenty of food storage space. On the lower level you will also find another third suite with a very spacious bedroom, parlor room, bath, and direct access to the pool patio. Behind the kitchen is a large laundry center, full shower bath, and a queen bedroom.

The upper level is comprised of two spacious private bedroom suites, each on a separate end of the house for maximum privacy. The panoramic ocean view bedrooms have king-size beds with elegant en-suite baths. Each suite opens up to a spacious ocean view alfresco covered veranda. A day bed and two other sofa beds provide extra sleeping areas for those who do not want to share beds.

We are dedicated to providing a first class vacation experience, therefore each room at Coral Gardens Estate has a large flat panel HD TV, DirectTV sat service, HD Blu-Ray CD/DVD player, and iPod dock. The great room and pool patio also have a multi-zone central speaker system. There is complimentary wi-fi and wired high speed internet, a printer/fax, security system, and other conveniences provided.

Walk or drive less than half a mile to sandy Maluaka Beach, a gorgeous half-moon shaped public sandy beach with public facilities. See beach access section below for additional beach adventures. Snorkel sail boats and charter boats operate from Maluaka Beach for sailing trips, snorkel sails, and sunset sails. Within a few blocks of Coral Gardens Estate are three championship golf courses, tennis courts, and not far away is Makena Stables for a horseback riding adventure. Wailea Golf Courses offer players some of the most verdant and picturesque golf of any tropical destination.
