Beautiful Waterfalls Adorn the Property

Kauai’s Valley House is steeped in history. Its legendary reputation comes from its original owner, Colonel Zephaniah Smith Spalding, a Civil War veteran who came to Kauai in 1878 at the request of Hawaii’s king, King Kalakaua. Spalding acquired 11,000 acres of land and established Kauai’s sugarcane industry. By 1880, Spalding had finished his Kealia estate and named his home “The Valley House.” The Colonel was renowned for his lavish entertaining of aristocratic guests and sumptuous festivities. Historic features abound on the property.  Throughout the years Valley House was used as a military base of operations during World War II, as well as a hotel. Hotel use may be grandfathered as a current permitted use.

Valley House has starred in many films, including Jurassic Park, Romancing the Stone, Tropic Thunder, George of the Jungle and most recently Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. It is one of the most sought after film locations in Hawaii. Valley House has also served as a beautiful setting for private events such as weddings and can be rented as a unique and private vacation rental. Click here for more information on this truly unique listing, or contact me for more information at 808-639-2437.
