Published Jul 27, 2022


It is undoubtedly spectacular, breath-taking even; it is one of Hawaii’s most photographed and celebrity-popular homes.

With postcard views of a 73-metre natural waterfall; a sports stadium with seating for 450 people; a nine-tee golf course; an aquatic centre; a two-story water slide; and some of Hawaii’s best ocean views, the celebrity vacation home once used by Justin Bieber is being sold at auction.

With a secluded location on the Big Island’s north-eastern shore, Waterfalling Estate made gossip-mag headlines in 2016 when the pop star rented the home for two weeks at $10 000 (R168 000) per night for his entourage, which included six skimpy-bikini-wearing models. Also a favourite for tropical reality television, Waterfalling Estate was chosen as the film location for both Love Island and Ex on the Beach, and a finalist for HGTV’s Ultimate House Hunt.
