Want to leave everything behind and live in Hawaii forever? If you have $49 million, you can own this oceanfront estate smack dab in the middle of the Hawea Point in Kapalua, Maui. It features deliberately open interiors to mesh with the tropical gardens and majestic ocean views outside.

From this point, you can even see neighboring islands like Lanai and Molokai across the Pailolo Channel — everywhere you look is an incandescent portrait of tropical bliss. Put your feet up on a chaise lounge, drink some mimosas, and enjoy a good book. You’ll never want to be elsewhere.

Spanning over 6,645 square feet, the massive house includes eight bedrooms, eight full baths, and nearly 10 acres of exterior space. It’s the perfect place to live in isolation and forget about the worries of the world. Merriam-Webster should take a picture of this cozy little hideaway next to the word “relaxation,” or “escape,” or perhaps even “utopia.”

We’re waxing poetic here, to be sure. But we just want to say you’re getting your money’s worth and then some. The Hawea Point estate features two wings. These intersect in a great room that loosens into a sheltered lanai and a wonderful pool deck below. And everything is intricately oriented for you to get the best views of Maui’s sunsets.

Overall, it boasts 12,000 square feet of awe-striking indoor-outdoor living spaces, plus 20,000 square feet of developed grounds. If you’re looking for the next thing to spend several million dollars on, this should definitely be it.
