Waikiki 2019 First South Swell by Ethan Tweedie

I got back to Honolulu just in time for the first big South Swell, Waikiki Beach was going off at around 6 to 10 feet. Although the swell was inconsistent some nice sets rolled through and it was fun to fly the Mavic Pro 2 and get some shots of the surf below. You can’t beat the backdrop of the Royal Hawaiian!

Hale Kahakai, Kukui’ula on the South Shore of Kauai - Pu’uwai Design + Build by Ethan Tweedie

This luxury home built and designed by Pu`uwai, Koloa’s Premier Design/Build Company in the Kukui’ula community on Kauai’s South shore takes a modern approach to tropical design.  Each bedroom opens up to the exterior lanai areas and both master suite bathrooms open to private courtyards and outdoor showers.  The infinity edge pool has a swim-up bar, aqua lounge area and seamless spa. 

Pu`uwai Design + Build hired us to photograph this gorgeous home to market their company, market as a luxury vacation rental, and list for sale.  We spent close to 3 days photographing this amazing home and it felt like photographing a piece of art, truly an amazing property Pu`uwai created. 

 I am grateful to Pu`uwai giving us close to three days to shoot at the house, the weather on Kauai in the winter can get tricky sometimes and on our last half day it rained almost non stop!  Lastly I want to thank Malia and Justin of Pu`uwai for letting us stay at the property, it saved a lot of time packing and unpacking all of our gear each day!  It truly was an amazing property to photograph, Mahalo!
