“Kauai Upcountry” usually makes people think of places like Kalihiwai Ridge and Hanalei on the North Shore. When you work with a dedicated Buyers Agent who knows Kauai, then other possibilities open up at a much better value.
Many luxurious homes located on the Eastside offer a remote, upcountry estate lifestyle at 50% to 60% of the values in Kalihiwai. For example:
