Carlos Santana has purchased a hideaway paradise retreat in a lushly tropical setting on the island of Kauai. He bought the Anahola, HI, home for $2.7 million to real estate records.
Located on the Garden Island’s east coast and featuring a mountain backdrop and ocean views, the 3,938-square-foot custom construction hits all the right notes.
Built in 2005 and accessible via gated entry, the three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom home contains 3,938 square feet, and a guest cottage adds another bedroom and bathroom. All the bedrooms open to the outside, which offers a large deck with a hot tub and a short walk to the beach. The large gourmet kitchen has solid granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and an island with a six-burner stove.
SF Gate notes that Santana bought the place in mid-February. They add that he’s previously owned a home in Maui, and that the new house is part of a real estate portfolio that incluside places in Las Vegas, where he performs regularly, and Tiburon, Calif, where he’s long been a resident.
Next month, Santana will release Africa Speaks, a Rick Rubin-produced album that is described as “inspired by the melodies, sounds and rhythms of Africa.” He’ll spend the summer touring in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Supernatural, with the Doobie Brothers as the opening act
