Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I have been in Hawaii for over 25 years now and work at an Environmental Consulting firm as a Sr. Scientist/Water Resource Specialist. My wife, who has been in Hawaii almost as long as I, is a Professor at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. We try and take advantage of the pristine ocean swimming, surfing, hiking and biking spots that are offered here on Oahu.

Why the Owner Chose Nuuanu - Punchbowl, Honolulu, HI, USA:
I came to Hawaii in 1986 on a surf excursion from NC after college and fell in love with the islands. I've lived all over the island, but ended up purchasing property in 2002 with my wife on Punch Bowl Crater. We started construction in 2004 and moved into our Hawaiian Pole House on the slopes of Punch Bowl Crater by February 2005. We've just recently completed the vacation rental in the space below the main structure.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This tropical property offers beautiful views, island-style living, while centrally located providing easy access for day trip excursions!
