It’s called the Plantation Estate at Paradise Point, and it was once favored by Hawaiian royalty for its views and natural beauty. It was later purchased by missionary Samuel Castle. Today, it is considered one of the most luxurious beach resort locations in the world.

According to, the 6,000-square-foot property includes a lagoon-style pool, several waterfalls and lanais, an outside bar and native Hawaiian plants and coconut trees.
