          Car: Not Necessary

          Kahalu'u is quiet, beautiful and convenient to Honolulu and the North Shore. It is especially close to: Chinaman's Hat (our favorite island to kayak to), Kualoa Ranch (very popular tourist attraction) and endless great beaches. Our favorite kid-friendly beach park is Kahana Bay. It is about eight miles away toward the North Shore. Our favorite bon fire area is in Ka'a'Awa about seven miles away. Ka'a'Awa is also a great area for snorkeling. Driving the other direction, SouthEast to Kaneohe and Kailua, will give you more options for restaurants. Hale'iwa Joe's in Kaneohe is our favorite restaurant. Driving past Kaneohe to Kailua you are rewarded with very beautiful, very popular beaches. Kailua is about 12 miles away.

          The nearest grocery store is three miles away. Next to the grocery store are a few small restaurants and a large movie theater. Across the street is Valley of the Temples. Not only is it free, but it's one of the most beautiful places on Oahu. There is a very picturesque Buddhist Temple there with an impressive koi pond complete with small turtles and stunning black geese.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: We are a young family doing our best to create a paradise here in Hawaii. I work for a local bank and my wife is a personal chef and a mom. We feel very lucky to live at this home in Kahalu'u in Hawaii.

          Why the Owner Chose Kahaluu:
          The tropical climate takes it's toll on homes in Hawaii. Even a home that is a few years old can appear much older here. This home is brand new and doesn't have any of the issues associated with older homes. This home also has the advantage of having a contemporary floor plan, recessed lighting, tall ceilings, and other modern home features.

          The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
          Proximity to the ocean, the north shore, Kailua, Kualoa Ranch, the Polynesian Cultural Center are all great benefits. The large yard and new construction with contemporary feel are also big benefits.
