A STORY UNFOLDS AT HOKUALA, KAUA’I

Timbers Resorts connects you with everyone and everything that you love.

Hokuala, Island of Kaua’i: “When I first met David Burden, Timbers Resorts founder, in Steamboat, Colorado, he told me that Steamboat has ‘great bones,’” said Debbie Edgerton, senior sales executive at Hokuala.  “There are so many beautiful places in the world but it’s more than the visual beauty of a destination that makes it special. David is intuitive in sensing what that is, which is what drew me to join the Timbers family back in 2006.”

Eleven years and two Timbers’ projects later, Edgerton returned to Hawaii to launch their newest development ‘Hokuala’ on the island of Kaua’i. “I was born and raised on the Big Island, so being close to my ‘ohana [family] was a highlight, but knowing that Timbers is committed to being authentic, unique and respectful of their destinations was the determining factor. If ever there was a place that has those ‘great bones’ that David looks for, it’s the island of Kaua’i. Beautiful no doubt, but it’s truly the community, the people, the aina [land] and the intangible aloha spirit that makes this place so special.”

Kaua’i’s Basecamp For Adventure 

“Our newest project, Hokuala, presented somewhat of a homecoming for me,” said Edgerton.

Hokuala is a 450-acre, 10-year development that, at completion, will include a Jack Nicklaus Signature Course, whole and fractional residences, a boutique hotel, tennis garden, retail, restaurants, and a handful of single-family estates. With 38 acres of navigable lagoons and waterways throughout and endless miles of community trails for running, biking and exploring, Hokuala will be the base camp for adventure on Kaua’i. Water taxis will take owners to the new Hokuala Golf Clubhouse to check in for their tee time or tennis lesson at the new tennis gardens. The Shops at Hokuala will boast an oceanfront restaurant with a wraparound lanai with breathtaking views of the Pacific and the verdant-etched mountains.

Effortless Island Living

Within Hokuala is a 10-acre oceanfront private residence club currently under construction, Timbers Kaua’i Ocean Club & Residences, opening spring 2018. With an oceanfront location like no other on the island, the 47 luxury residences within three buildings are offered as wholly owned or residential interests. The fractional interests are fee simple, deeded real estate and provide an opportunity to truly own a slice of paradise.

“Timbers Kaua’i centers on ownership versus usage only. It fosters a stronger connection and a better sense of belonging and community,” explained Edgerton. “It also reduces the cost, hassles, and headaches associated with second home ownership.”

Timbers Kaua’i residences are designed to make your days flow seamlessly between indoors and outdoors, with multiple lanais, floor-to-ceiling glass and contemporary design. With every single home, you’ll enjoy spectacular views, not just of the Pacific but the Ha’upu mountain range and Jack Nicklaus Signature Ocean Course at Hokuala, of course.

Last Of Its Kind

The residences of Timbers Kaua‘i are, in fact, closer to the shoreline than any other new homes on the island. Due to zoning changes after the start of the project, other new construction is now required to have a minimum 500-foot setback from high tide. “Timbers Kaua’i has the distinction of being the last oceanfront new development this close to the water,” explains Edgerton. “The difference is palpable with the sound of water lapping just outside your bedroom window.”

There’s Oceanfront Golf, And Then There’s Ocean Course At Hokuala

Hokuala’s Jack Nicklaus Signature Course features the longest stretch of oceanfront holes in all of Hawaii.

“Both nines have a memorable moment,” said Fran Roach, general manager.

“The 5th and 6th holes require forced carries over a gorge of mango and papaya trees,” explained Roach. “The fragrant smell is long lasting as your cart passes through a canopy of ancient fruit trees.

“The back nine has a completely different feel with the Pacific Ocean and trade winds becoming a factor,” said Roach. “The 16th is a standout and has been rated the 10th best lighthouse hole in America.”
