About Olu Pua Gardens

Step back in time to the traditional Hawaiian Plantation era. Olu Pua Gardens, rich in historical significance since its inception in 1931. The main house was built by CW Dickey, and was once the residence for the Kauai Pineapple Company's manager(s). The property later became privately owned and turned into a fully functioning botanical garden known as Olu Pua Gardens. The property now consists of 5 dwellings on 12.29 acres of manicured lawns and landscaping with; a Japanese Garden, a Kau Kau Garden, a Tropical Rainforest (aka The Jungle), a Hibiscus Garden and Pond. At one time known to have over 50,000 orchids and 5000 specimen on display. The main house consists of 3 bedrooms/3 baths of approx. 3100 sq ft, elegantly displaying it's unique architecture of vaulted ceilings with hard carved beams, the original acid stained concrete floors throughout, and a grand lava rock fireplace, all reminiscent of CW Dickey and the skilled Japanese workman's craftsmanship of the day. The kitchen was remodeled with mango wood cabinets, a special, wildly colored, porcelain counter top with a lava rock substrate, 2 German Silver Co. farm style sinks, a "breakfast bar" counter top made out of local Monkeypod wood, A Wolf French stove top, and of course, a fully designated dining room which lends itself to 2 outdoor seating areas which overlook the pool and Jungle below or the Japanese Garden at back. An upper guest house has 2 bedrooms/2 baths, mini kitchen of approx. 1000 sq ft. The lower guest house with 4 bedrooms/3 baths of approx. 2800 sq ft., includes 2 large living rooms with a fireplace, dining room, full kitchen, 2 outdoor seating areas in addition to its entry lanai. The lower guest house is quietly nestled below a tiered lava rock wall, overlooking The Jungle, a giant 80+ year old Earpod, Swamp Mahogany trees, Rainbow Eucalyptus and much more. Other dwellings include a studio off the lower guest house, approx. 800 sq ft., a caretakers cottage approx. 500 sq ft and an equipment barn, 1000 sq. ft A rare treat to find a property with this much diversity and significance all in one.
