Muliwai, meaning “estuary” or “enclosed water,” is named for the stream that meanders through the property, traveling from the mountains to the ocean.

Muliwai Landscape

Lush Palm Landscapes helped to revive the lush landscape grounds of history with a fresh take of new plantings and landscape design that complements the existing history of this iconc Hawaiian property. The begging of Muliwai starts with Una Craig and Alex Walker’s love story in 1920, when they met while surfing in the vibrant waves of Waikiki.

Alex, a distinguished figure who later became President and CEO of American Factors, Ltd., and Una, a passionate advocate for community service, sought solace away from the bustling city life of Honolulu in the late 1930s. Determined to find their sanctuary, Una used her own resources to acquire this secluded five-acre parcel of land in 1939.

Immerse yourself in the legacy of this timeless haven, where every step whispers tales of an enchanting past.
