About the Property

3 Bed, 2 1/2 Bath Family Home Centrally Located Between Kailua Beach And Town

E komo mai (welcome) to Blue Tiki, a luxurious family home in the heart of Kailua. The private setting with lush tropical gardens will draw you in and provide a true sense of home while staying in paradise. New to the market and rarely available, the residence is owner occupied year round and made available during special breaks.

* 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths that sleeps 6 comfortably and up to 8 with air mattress
* Less than 10 minute walk to Kailua Beach and Kailua Town
* Large kitchen, lanai, and pool cabana with outdoor dining and hammock
* Pool/spa, pool table, air conditioning, basic beach gear provided
* Accessible owner who can provide local advice on itinerary

ABOUT BLUE TIKI With a layout ideally suited for families, Blue Tiki sleeps up to eight guests (one king, one double, one twin trundle, and one queen air mattress). The master bedroom suite has a large walk-in shower with dual shower heads while the two additional bedrooms share a bath and shower. The family room opens to the lanai in the backyard, blending the outdoor and indoor living spaces. The regulation sized pool table will keep you entertained, as will the cozy leather couches with TV and Netflix. A Vonage telephone line and high speed internet (fiber) with WiFi coverage throughout the home provide connectivity for those who need it. With ceiling fans throughout, the available air conditioning is rarely needed. See additional details in the amenities section below.

Relax in a hammock under the coconut and lime trees, or unwind in the pool situated in a tropical setting among plumerias, birds of paradise, and many other indigenous plants and trees. The large lanai provides ample space to kick back in the shade with a book, and the covered pool cabana offers seating for six for poolside dining. Unobstructed tradewinds will keep you cool both day and night as you take in the beauty that surrounds you.

AROUND KAILUA Situated ideally between Kailua town and Kailua Beach Park, Blue Tiki offers the perfect location to enjoy the best of what our village has to offer -- family fun at the beach, or a break from the water while you shop in the many unique stores. Dining options are plentiful with restaurants nearby that cater to all tastes. The home is a very short stroll to any of the farmers' markets that are held weekly.

OAHU DAY TRIPS Kailua is a wonderful base for exploring the rest of Oahu's famous attractions, all of which are within an hour's drive of Blue Tiki. Whether your itinerary takes you to the historic World War II monuments around Pearl Harbor, the beaches at Waikiki, snorkeling at Hanauma Bay, or to the fabled North Shore and its world famous surf breaks, the best of Oahu is easily within reach on a day trip.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are a family of four that spent the last three decades in Texas prior to taking an overseas posting in the Middle East. When looking to repatriate, our options were endless. We knew we wanted a lifestyle where we could spend the majority of our time outdoors. After packing all that we owned into a container, we set off for Hawaii. During our first visit to Kailua we were sold...all that we were looking for and more!

Why the Owner Chose Kuulei Tract, Kailua, HI, USA:
Blue Tiki is a gem. We looked at over 30 homes in a week during our transition to Hawaii, and this one stood out as a recently renovated home in the highly desirable Kuulei Tract in Kailua. Its location is perfect for a local family who spends as much time shopping and dining as we do at the beach...a short walk in either direction! The layout of our home is ideal for entertaining and equally suitable for the relaxing lifestyle for which Hawaii is known. The tradewinds cool the home year-round, and though we have air conditioners, we've only turned them on a handful of times in September (our hottest month). The tropical oasis in our backyard is well protected and provides a private sanctuary with pool and spa. Coconut and plumeria trees surround you and truly give a sense of living on a remote island!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Blue Tiki is our family home that we make available to our guests, thus we take pride in maintaining our home to a high standard. We have the basic amenities such as boogie-boards and lifejackets, bbq grill, beach chairs, snorkel gear, and coolers. Larger items such as kayaks and surfboards are better suited renting from the nearby shops to avoid the hassle of transporting them to the beach. In short, our home = your home...enjoy!
