Kaaawa house description

Serenely situated between the mountains and the ocean, this comfortable country cottage rests on twelve thousand square feet of property fenced on all four sides. Exiting the home from the rear porch and patio you can enjoy the beautiful Ko’olau Mountain Range with Kuu'loa Ranch in the back. The beach can be viewed from the front of the property and is one of Oahu’s loveliest. The beach is a short distance from the home and is accessed by a common thoroughfare. Not only is the beach a favorite of the Ka'a'awa locals it is a safe area to swim, snorkel, paddleboard and kayak as it has a protected reef. The beach offers solitude as not many locals and others frequent it. At night you will be lulled to sleep by the sound of the ocean. This home is well suited especially to families and children.
Large back yard.
After coming from the beach there is a large enclosed outdoor hot and cold water shower situated on the sidewall of the house.
The back patio has about 600 square feet of covered area for entertaining, and has a table and chairs for outdoor lounging. Off to the side is a storage area and toilet.
The kitchen has been completely renovated in 2012 with ceramic tile floors, granite counter tops, a large kitchen sink, cabinets outfitted w/lots of storage space, a full range stove and oven, a full-sized refrigerator/freezer with ice maker. The dining area has a dining table to seat six and a microwave oven. The living room and hallway are carpeted. The comfortable couch will provide sleeping for 1 additional person. There are 3 bedrooms with a queen, full, and 2 twin beds in each of the rooms respectively. Two of the rooms have full-sized dressers and all three rooms have closets. The 2 bathrooms with toilet and wash basin in the master bedroom and the main bathroom with bathtub/shower, toilet, wash basin and storage cabinet were renovated in 2012 as well with ceramic tile floors and granite counter top. The home has solid hardwood oak flooring throughout with carpeting in the living room and hallway.
This home was built in the late 1960’s by the original owners whose passions for fishing and love of the ocean and gardening brought them to this spot which they believed to be truly “paradise on earth”. This home continues to be owned and maintained by the original owner’s descendants with gratefulness and love of the home and land.
Kuu'loa Ranch offers horseback trail rides, ATV ride tours, jungle tours, and paniolo (Hawaiian) BBQ’s. The ranch has been the site of many movies including 'Jurrasic Park', 'King Kong', 'Lost', '50 First Dates', and current hit TV Series - Hawaii 5-0. The ranch provides movie set tours.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2010

          About the owner: Born and raised in Hawaii. Have lived on the windward side of Oahu since the 1970's. My spouse and I have 3 children and 5 grandchildren

          Why the Owner Chose Kaaawa:
          This property has been owned by my family since the 1960's. It continues to provide wonderful weekends for my husband and myself, children and grandchildren since it is so close to one of the best beaches on the island. My daughter and I had an opportunity to acquire it when the trust decided to offer it for sale. 'Kaimalino' means calm, quiet ocean at low tide - our daughters have fond memories spent enjoying the beach and ocean with Tutu and Tutu Papa.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The property is large and fenced on 4 sides. The beautiful beach is a short walk away. Very quiet in the day and evenings. Magnificent mountain view.
