Honolulu house description

This Hawaiiana designed home sits at the end of Koko Head and looks directly across Maunalua Bay at Diamond Head and Kahala. This neighborhood is known for its beautiful private homes, open ocean views (great for whale watching in the winter months),ocean access through city and county maintained regional grounds, as well as, great fishing off the rocky cliffs and reefs. This large, 3000-square-foot home is located on a half acre and tropically landscaped. The house is fully furnished as the owner lives there part of the year. All amenities are included.

Perfect for Weddings, with the wide open layout and plenty of room in the yard, both the pool side lanai between the hot tub and lanai and the Diamond Head yard with great views from the grass.

We are in Hawaii Kai just a little over a mile from Koko Marina and Hanauma Bay. We are 20 minutes from Waikiki and about 30 minutes from the airport. The Koko Marina Shopping Center has an Eight-Plex Movie Theatre with Stadium Seating, Blockbuster Movie Rental, Foodland Grocery Store, Starbucks, Subway, 24 Hour Fitness, as well as, a number of other restaurants and shops. Just a mile across the bay there are several other familiar stores; Costco, Safeway, City Mill Hardware, McDonalds, Longs and Ross, just to mention a few.

Water is everywhere...hot tub and pool in the back yard or just step across the street onto the ocean cliffs. One block down the street, sit on a private sandy beach.

The master bedroom is just inside the entrance and has a king size bed,a large double wardrobe and private bathroom. Both of the other bedrooms have queen beds and they share one full and one half bathrooms at the rear of the house. We also have a king size 'Pune'e', a full size convertible futon, a twin roll away, three folding futons and an inflatable mattress. We have individual room air conditioners in the bedrooms for personal preferences.

The kitchen is in the middle of the house and has ocean view from the sink. The GRAND VIEW is from the living area which is a large hexagon with vaulted ceiling, large fan and three sets of twelve foot sliding glass windows facing the ocean.

We have four televisions and several VCRs plus two DVD players. There are games for the whole family: cribbage, dominos, Yatzee, Pictionary, Trivial Pursuit and others. We have lots of room for a fun game of croquet in the large grass front yard.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: Aloha! Lynn and I purchased Hale Hawaii Kai in June of 2005. I had rented the house since March of 2000. I started the gardening immediately and once I purchased the house put the lanscaping in HIGH GEAR. We also added a pool. I have photos of Lynn on the excavator digging the pool...she is good! We renovated the entire property inside and out: paint, cabinets, eaves, bathrooms and wardrobes. This property is the LOVE OF MY LIFE, next to Lynn! We enjoy our guests' holidays almost as much as they do. We enjoy taking them surfing, kayaking and hiking.

                          Why the Owner Chose Honolulu:
                          I have a very flexible schedule which allows me to manage the vacation rental, I have traveled extensively and enjoying meeting people from around the world. When guests have an interest I take them sight seeing or shopping around the island.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Besides being a beautiful place to have a wedding or reception, this property is ideally located, close to Waikiki but not in the busy downtown area. We have incredible views, warm water, restaurants and activities close at hand. Famous Hanauma Bay is just 2 minutes away. There are beautiful cliffs to climb and great surf just 1 minute from the front door! Walking in the neighborhood you will see some of the most beautiful homes on the island.
