Add your own touch to make this space really come to life

There is so much you can do with this space. Make your ideas come to fruit here – start outside, turn your pool/yard area into a DIY boho-chic oasis. From pallet furniture projects to simple, easy intimate stringing of globe lights and colorful bohemian decor.


Front entry

Enjoy your cement semi-covered walkways to your doorway and you can spruce the planter section with a fresh, easy to maintain herb garden. Bonus is: this looks beautiful, smells fresh, and it’s useful!

Bright & Spacious Interior

The interior is a blank canvas ready for you…use your imagination. A Pinterest or blog lover’s dream. Lots of natural light, windows, skylight, and sliding glass doors opening to a covered open lanai area, positioned well to enjoy the trades and privacy of your yard and pool.

One of my favorite things here is the unique semi-arched doorway (puertas de arco), which you don’t see all that often in modern architecture, especially in Hawai’i. It’s an ancient detail that creates a load-bearing opening. If tied into the interior, arches are elegant and style defining.

All you need here is a simple facelift – like using a bold, brightly colored accent wall or simple earthy tones. This is an easy place to really dive into art deco, using sort of a fun Mediterranean flare for inspiration. The full kitchen is inviting, with elevated ceiling, recessed lighting, and a semi-open breakfast bar for easy pass-through entertaining.


Roomy bathroom with his and her sinks

Bathrooms are roomy with cabinet space and long countertops, even his and her sinks. Find great light here as well. Come see this easy-to-show home in a peaceful and central neighborhood!
