Kaanapali Coffee Farm, Maui
Once a sugar cane plantation, this private estate and working coffee farm serves up much more than a cup of Joe, as it offers amazing patchwork fields of coffee plants and lovely views of Molokai and Lanai; while the home’s expansive covered lanai opens up to a huge patio surrounding an infinity pool and spa.

Oahu’s Waimea Valley is a stunning Hawaiian botanical garden set on more than 1,800 lush acres.
