About the property

2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Luxury Oceanfront Home with Panoramic Ocean Views To Die For

Better known in the modern era as Lanikai, the highly sought after real estate this stunning home is located on was known to the ancient Hawaiians as Ka'ohao, which translates into "tying together" or "joining together". That translation is a perfect description for this particular home, which is perched atop Alala Point that connects two of the most sought after beaches on the entire planet - Lanikai & Kailua.

The View at Alala Point offers the very best of both worlds, with interior indulgences to live for and panoramic ocean views to die for! The home is flanked on either side by the pristine white sands of Kailua & Lanikai beaches, with kailua beach being approximately 100 yards to the west and Lanikai about 300 yards to east. Which beach to spend your days at will be a tough decision, as both have been voted as being two of the top 10 beaches on the entire planet by Conde Naste Magazine & Trip Advisor.

Treat yourself to a stay at The View at Alala Point & find out why they call this amazing place paradise!

The oceanfront master bedroom with King bed, sits right above the ocean with commanding views of the whole bay and all three islands to look at. The large over sized master bathroom has a wonderful tub that sits above the sea allowing for amazing wild life watching. Two sinks, a separate large shower with seating and a walk in closet finish off the area.

The guest bedroom is located on the ground floor with green grass yard directly on the oceanfront. If you open the sliding door, you will hear the ocean and breath in some of the best air on the planet. The guest bedroom bathroom has a ceiling shower with a rainbow light to create a very relaxing shower experience.

This home is perfect for a small family or two couples looking for one of the best homes in Lanikai/Kailua. A very romantic location complete with an abundance of activities to enjoy the day light and moonlight hours.

Come stay where the people of Hawaii vacation. It is not uncommon to bump into celebrities and dingntaries alike. Barack Obama visits each winter and stays right down the road in Kailua town. He takes his daily walks and turns around right at this property.

Michelle Pfieffer has several homes a few blocks away on Lanikai Beach. The Paul Mitchel the hair care founder has his Estate in Lanikai, and his most recent guest was the Rock and President Obama.

Come enjoy and relax in our little piece of paradise.

Mahalo & Aloha

Beautiful home, with unbelievable views! Very well decorated and clean throughout.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here for a week. The location is unbeatable, just a few minute walk from both Kailua and Lanikai beach. Has to be the best views on the entire island. The interior of the house is very well done and kept very clean. Would highly recommend this for a stay - we hope to be back again soon!

Marvelous place to stay, great beaches, wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

Flying in from Germany, we stayed here for 10 days, a few days together with our son and our daughter-in-law, as the last honeymoon days. Traveling around the world since 1982, this was definitely the cleanest house we've ever had. The very well equipped kitchen offers us all the facilities to prepare our food and enjoy our meals in the veranda. The Sonos / Bose sound system gave us all the opportunities to receive news from our home by net-radio.There is a TV, but you don't need it. You have two 160" ocean view windows with constantly changing program, and no commercial ;-) . The 2 beautiful beaches of Oahu were in our opinion right and left of us, just a few minutes walk away. Every morning we enjoyed the sunrise, from the veranda or after short walk, at the beach. Pushing back from the parking lot is really a little bit difficult, but with a second advisor it works perfectly. I recommend to push uphill. make a small U-turn through the village and get the advisor on the way back. We will come back. Mahalo, thank you and Danke !

It was a 5 star experience.

Beautiful home & views but some issues

  • 3 of 5

The house is lovely and view is spectacular—making it tough to tear yourself away from the lanai to walk a few minutes to the beach. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the master bathroom is awesome.

We did have a couple of disappointments… AC didn’t work in the bedrooms during our 7-night stay. Opening windows at night brought in a nice ocean breeze but construction started next door at 7am, and that noise came in the windows too.

Also, a kayak and bicycles were listed under outdoor amenities but did not exist. (They’ve been removed from the listing since our visit.)

We’ve requested a small price adjustment because of the lack of AC and kayak/bikes but 2 weeks later are still waiting to for a resolution.

Overall, a great location and beautifully appointed property but if any of the listed amenities weigh strongly in your decision, you’ll want to confirm before you book.

Owner's Response: Aloha Susan, We are so glad you had a nice stay at our Lanikai home. We are very sorry that the AC went down during part of your stay. Unfortunately this is just a home and like any home things happen. As you know we were right on the issue trying to resolve it as fast as possible. The AC is fully functioning now. Regarding the Kayak & Bike. We have never offered Kayaks or bikes with the property due to liability if something went wrong. They are available a few blocks away for rental at Kailua Beach. The property is perfect for Biking and Kayaking and only listed them as activities that you can do in the area. Sorry for any confusion there. We strive to make sure people have a wonderful time while visiting the property. If book any of our properties in the future we will offer you a 5% discount on the whole daily rate to offset any loss to you for the confusion. Mahalo & Aloha

Splendid setting, beautiful views, and very close to beach

  • 5 of 5

Very modern home with everything one might need. Good for adults, not children. The deck offers magnificent views. Both Lanikai and Kailua beaches are a five minute walk away. Yes, driveway is very difficult to get in and out of. One needs a spotter and then it works. Great walks, easy trip to downtown, local market is great.

Beautiful property. Location is fabulous and the views!! Sunrise, super moon over the water.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house, very clean and well maintained. Our only comments. We could never get the dishwasher to work. The pilot light on the hot water tank kept going out. But we got a call back right away on New Year’s Eve telling us how to fix it. And one small tv in the whole house.

Very nice property. Great view; kitchen; porch

  • 4 of 5

this house has great views of water from all rooms. The kitchen is modern and there is plenty of room to sit around the bar and eat/drink.

MBR is excellent .... the second bedroom is adequate. the wraparound porch is terrific.
